Fruits basket is both a manga--a japanese graphic novel and an anime series. The series only coveres the first eight or so books in the story, and there's actually a fan site devoted to trying to get producers to continue the series in anime form.

Here's the story, straight from Tokyopop:
The enigmatic Sohma family shares a great secret, its members are possessed by spirits of the Chinese Zodiac, and when they are hugged by members of the opposite sex, they transform into their Zodiac animal! Tohru Honda, an orphaned high school freshman, is given lodging in the Sohma household in exchange for taking care of household chores. The humble Tohru is quite grateful for the Sohma family's generosity, and the longer she stays with them, the more they realize what a blessing she is in their lives, as well.
