Mito (水戸) is a minor character of Fruits Basket Another. She is a student of class 1-A― the same class as Sawa Mitoma― at Kaibara Municipal High School. She eventually becomes one of Sawa's first genuine friends along with Amane.


Mito is a fair-skinned teenage girl standing at an average build and height. She has straight, bobbed, light-colored hair that ends just above her shoulders. Her bangs are neatly brushed to the right side of her face, secured with two black hairpins. She wears oval-shaped glasses in front of her dark-colored eyes.

Outside of school, she is seen without her glasses, implying that she wears contact lenses. She also ties her hair into a small ponytail at the back as opposed to letting it down, with two locks of hair framing her face.[1]

She is often depicted in the typical Kaibara High school uniform with a blue sweater on top.


Mito is a very level-headed, mature, responsible and calm girl who rarely looses her cool.[2] She prefers to live in the present and take it easy, as she dislikes thinking about schools or exams during a break.[1] At the same time, she is teasing, has her own way with words, and has an oddly passionate side about things she is interested in.[2][3] However, she is equally as kind-hearted and gentle as her friend Amane, and is very supportive of her friends.

Story Overview[]

Despite their contrasting personalities,[1] Mito and Amane are very close friends who stick together through thick and thin, and can confide anything to the opposite party. They were friends prior to meeting Sawa, evidenced by the fact that they would wait for each other's classes to end, and walk home from school together.[2][4]

Sawa Mitoma[]

Although Mito wasn't actively trying to befriend Sawa, she welcomed her with open arms once she did strike up a conversation with Amane and her, hoping that they could become friends.[2] Mito is very warm, supportive, and inviting towards Sawa, though she also enjoys teasing her,[4][2] as well as about her relationship with Shiki Sohma.[3]


  • The name Mio means 美 (mi) meaning "beautiful" combined with 桜 (o) meaning "cherry blossom" or 緒 (o) meaning "thread".


  • She seems to be interested in relationships between older women and younger men, as she appeared to be passionate about the idea of Sawa and Shiki together.[3]
  • Apparently, she doesn't have too good stamina.[1]
  • In her trio of friends mirroring the last generation, she is the Uotani opposite; being studious and even tempered.
