Heroine Overview

Is it okay for me to have my own life now, father, now that I'm not "special" anymore?
~ Akito Sohma

Akito Sohma is the main antagonist-turned-heroine in the manga and anime series Fruits Basket. She is the love interest of Shigure Sohma. She is the head of Sohma family and cursed by the God of the zodiac. She is also the only daughter of Akira Sohma and Ren Sohma.

She is voiced by Maaya Sakamoto in the Japanese version of the anime, and by Colleen Clinkenbeard & Trina Nishimura as a child in the English version of the anime.


She has short black hair due to her mother's command on bringing her up as a male. She shares the same eyes and hair color as her mother. To cover up her female body figure, Akito usually dresses in many layers or male clothing or oversized male clothing. In the Sohma House, she usually wears robes meant for men. By the end of the series, she grows her hair to shoulder-length and starts to wear female clothes. According to Shigure, if Akito had been brought up as a female, she would have been a spitting image of Ren.


She rarely shows any sympathy and is extremely misogynistic, showing little to no trust or respect for other women. This is evident through her behaviour towards Kana, Tohru, Rin, and her mother, Ren. Akito is actually extremely insecure. Ren's biting words and treatment towards her really had a strong impact on her mind when she was a child, and it can be seen that even as an adult, Akito is still intimidated by her words.

Akito is very arrogant and dull. She grew loathsome around Tohru Honda until near the end of the manga. However, Akito is actually extremely insecure, mostly because she's afraid that everyone around her will leave her.

Akito is depicted as short-tempered and abusive, and has physically and emotionally scarred many Sohma, including Hatori, Rin, Momiji, Kisa, Yuki, and Kyo.


In Chapter 124, after talk with Momiji Sohma, she went to see Tohru in hospital room to accept her friendship.

In Chapter 126, she have something to talk with Kyo's father that Kyo is free and Cat's Room will be destroyed.

In Chapter 127, Saki can tell that Akito is woman. After finish talking with Kazuma Sohma about Cat's Room being destroyed.

In Chapter 128, she want all of cursed Sohma member even Kyo at the main house.

In Chapter 132, After the curse is broken, Akito reveal all of Sohma that she is a women, let them be free and tell them do they want in their life since curse broken and ask them for forgiven after she hurts them in the past (except Rin won't forgive Akito).

Years later after married to Shigure, her mother attempted to kill her son Shiki by stabbing him with a knife. Akito protected her son and took the blow in his stead.
