Ouran: Basket Cases by KatKitChan Ouran: Basket Cases by KatKitChan
...Fruits Basket, that is. :D


Fruits Basket was my favourite shoujo anime until Ouran came along, and a lot of the characters (and the character dynamics) are so similar I had to draw this.

Tamaki = Ayame
Haruhi = Yuki
Kyouya = Hatori
Hunny = Momiji (I swear, they look like twins)
Mori = Haru and his White Coat of +1 Awesome
Hikaru = Start-of-series Kyou
Kaoru = End-of-series Kyou
Renge = Kagura
Nekozawa - Saki-chan
Kasanoda = Uo-chan

It's funny how it worked out so that the oldest Host Club members are playing the youngest characters. I was going to add Shirou as Hiro, too, but the pic got awfully large and complicated and I don't really like him enough to bother.

And my cracktastic explanation for why Haruhi is not dressed as Tohru, despite (technically) being the heroine:

After listening to several of the Host Club customers wax poetic over their favourite manga for several hours, Tamaki had jumped to his feet in a burst of enthusiasm and announced that they absolutely, positively /had/ to cosplay the series, out of duty to their customers.
Of course, this led to Tamaki chasing Haruhi around the Third Music Room trying to get her to wear Tohru's outfit, with many shouts of: "We must have a heroine, Haruhi! Daddy demands it!".
The twins gave identical Cheshire grins and declared that they didn't mind, since it gave them an excuse to spend a lot of close time with Haruhi.
Tamaki decided that actually, it would be better if Haruhi wore a costume which let him "reinforce our familial bond - while incidentally keeping you from spending too much time under the corrupting influence of those degenerate twins, Haruhi. Daddy's only looking out for your own good."

I think Haruhi fits as Yuki better than Tohru, personally. She's much more level-headed. ^^
And yes, I'm aware that a version of this has already been done by the lovely and infinitely more talented :iconyoukaiyume:, but I started drawing this before I knew about it, and I figure it's different enough to not count as ripping her off. =)

Also, if you can tell what the Japanese actually says, you get a cookie. :D

EDIT: Guys, it's nice of all of you to tell me that Momiji and Hunny have the same voice actor, but please stop, kthx. I /KNOW/. >;p

EDIT 2: ASDFGHJKL 1000 FAVES? You guys rock. :D

EDIT 3: ........Two thousand faves.
Two thousand faves.
I never expected any of my crack fanart to get a response like this. Thanks heaps to all of you! :D

I really like the art in this! Though, I think Kaoru should've been Yuki, and Haruhi should have been Tohru. But that's just me.
Other than that I think everything's great! I just wonder what the Fruits Basket people would say about the cosplay... XD I'm sure Ayame would love it.

This is the best XD
The only manga I can think of that's more like Fruits Basket is Kitchen Princess, with Najika=Tohru, Sora=Yuki, Daichi=Kyo, Akane=Kagura, and Fujita=Shigure.
Deangirl702 Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2012
This is awesome
Kyo is my favorite character in Fruits basket and Kaoru is my favorite Ouran character so this is really cool
OhMyFreaking Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2012
NO OFFENSE and correct me if I'm wrong but is the one with the blue jacket End-of-series Kyo? If so, then it's Hikaru. If not, it's not my fault i haven't watched this series in 2 years.

Oh, and I think you nailed their alter-egos with their personalities.
mancan71 Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
to be honest i found an article that states that one of the two(momiji and hunny) are based off the other. i don't know which came first, but the one who came second was based off the other. they both even have the same voice actor in japan. they both have something to do with bunnies, they both like sweets, they're both older than they look, they're both adoral and sweet and they both have blonde hair and brown eyes.
