Fruits Basket Wiki

The Mabudachi Trio (mabudachi meaning "true friend") is a group made up of the three oldest cursed Sohmas: Hatori Sohma, Shigure Sohma and Ayame Sohma. They have been together ever since they were young, all through elementary, middle and high school. In the English dub, Shigure refers to their group as "The Three Musketeers".

School Life

The Principal allows Ayame to wear his hair long if that saves him from having to deal with his antics.

In Chapter 22 (Volume Four) or Episode 13 of the first season (of the 2019 Anime), it is revealed that Ayame convinced the principal to permit his long hair (more through bluster than wit) and was student council president (though he protests Hatori would have been better-suited.)

Ayame speech takes a strange turn when he declares that the student body should "direct their carnal desires" at him.

During a class field trip, several of their classmates were caught visiting the "red light district". Ayame spoke in their defense, insisting that their interest grew from natural human impulses, and proposed as a compromise that the student body should "direct their carnal desires" at him. (Shigure notes that it was likely Hatori's intervention that kept their classmates from being expelled and allowed Ayame to continue as class president.)


Shigure and Ayame

Shigure and Ayame enjoying their antics.

Shigure and Ayame are playful with each other, peppering their conversations with jokes and innuendos (though it is possible that they do this to amuse themselves, rather than out of any romantic intentions.)

Ayame and Hatori

Ayame can only be handled by Hatori as he deeply admires and respects him.

Ayame deeply respects and admires Hatori's maturity. As a result, Hatori is the only person who can order Ayame around.

Shigure and Hatori

Shigure makes his foolish remarks as usual but Hatori who is generally a serious person doesn't want to go along with it.

Hatori chastises Shigure for his foolish remarks, but acknowledges that Shigure is far from the imbecile he presents himself to be.
