After the death of her mother, the only parent she had ever known, Tohru moved in with her paternal grandfather. Not wanting to be a burden, she began working as a housekeeper in order to help him supplement his modest savings and to pay her own way through high school.
Tohru has been living in a tent for a few weeks while renovations are being done on her grandfather's house. On her way to school, she meets a boy named Shigure. The two are in the middle of their conversation, when who should appear but Shigure's cousin, Yuki Souma – the cutest and most sought-after boy in Tohru’s school! Since they’re going to the same place, Yuki offers to walk Tohru to school.
Later that day, Tohru and Yuki cross paths once again. Seeing that she is clearly exhausted from a hard day of school and work, they take her back to their house and give her a comfortable place to rest. In the morning, Tohru awakens to the offer of a job and a place to stay. She accepts, and she is just being shown to her new room when another boy comes crashing through the ceiling. This stranger tries to pick a fight with Yuki, so Tohru wraps her arms around him in order to restrain him. Poof! He turns into a cat. Naturally, Tohru is shocked. In her confusion, she clings to Shigure and Yuki for support. Poof! They turn into animals as well – a dog and a rat.
