Hero Overview

Kagura Sohma is one of the supporting of the Fruits Basket series and and cursed by the spirit of the boar/pig of the zodiac.

In the 2001 anime series, she is voiced by Kotono Mitsuishi in the Japanese version of the anime, and by Meredith McCoy in the English version of the anime.

In the 2019 anime series, she is voiced by Rie Kugimiya in the Japanese version of the anime, and by Tia Ballard in the English version of the anime.


She is depicted as a girlish young girl with great strength, and the impulsive behavior associated with those born in her zodiac year.

When her curse activates, Kagura transforms into a brown boar.



The latter often takes the form of berating and beating up Kyo, to whom she insists she is engaged. When Kagura was seven and Kyo was five, and he was all alone because he carried the curse of the cat, she played with him, and one day threatened him into proposing to her (using a knife in the manga, a boulder in the anime). After the nature of her love is questioned by Rin, Kagura eventually admits to Kyo that her love was based on pity, much as Kazuma fears Tohru's is, and that she has clung to him because she has it easy compared to the cat.

After Kyo tells her he cannot love her, she claims to give up hope of winning him but still loves Kyo and cares for him; when Tohru admits to Rin that she loves Kyo, Kagura impulsively strikes her, saying that the one to tell that to is Kyo himself.

She attends a local college while living with her parents, who are shown taking her double-edged personality in stride, and with Rin.
