Kureno is one of the more mysterious characters in Fruits Basket. He doesn't appear much and yet he makes the most impact in terms of plot. He reveals that the curse can be broken and that Akito is a woman. He is in the unique position to protect the rest of the zodiac from Akito's abusive outburst. He even manages to find love despite his best attempts to not to. Kureno's story is compelling and in this section I hope to draw parallels with other characters in the series and discuss his motives in greater detail.

Below are some essays that I feel capture just how fascinating Kureno is.

Fruits Basket has been completed for a while but if you haven't completed the series yet then this section may contain unmarked spoilers
