Hero Overview

Ayame Sohma is one of the supporting of the Fruits Basket series and cursed by the spirit of the snake of the zodiac.

In the 2001 anime serie, he is voiced by Mitsuru Miyamoto in the Japanese version of the anime, and by Christopher R. Sabat in the English version of the anime.

In the 2019 anime serie, he is voiced by Takahiro Sakurai & Natsumi Fujiwara as a child in the Japanese version of the anime, and by Christopher R. Sabat & Ciarán Strange as a child in the English version of the anime.


He is a young man with very long silver hair and striking eyes, which Tohru notes makes him resemble Yuki.

When his curse activates, Ayame transforms into a silver snake.


He is vivacious, garrulous, and has a knack for making Yuki and Kyo angry.


He runs a shop, named after himself, that sells custom-made "romantic costumes" such as frilly dresses and maid costumes with the help of Mine Kuramae, his seamstress.

Ayame is best friends with Shigure and Hatori, who are the same age; while Shigure goes along with Ayame's outrageous personality, Hatori is the only one, according to Shigure and Takaya, who can restrain Ayame's worst behavior.

When Ayame was in high school, he was president of the student council, and is proud that Yuki is following him. Ayame fears the "nothingness" of not being acknowledged.

When Ayame was young, he completely ignored Yuki, and even forgot Yuki's name once, but during the series realizes he will be completely alone, with only Yuki as company when they get older.

This spurs an obsession with gaining Yuki's love, which he attempts to do by demanding it from Yuki, and later trying more thoughtful ways to prove Yuki can depend on him. As the series progresses, Yuki gradually accepts Ayame as a brother, and even tries to understand him. When Ayame is freed from the curse, the first thing he does is embrace Mine Kuramae and confess he loves her.
