Ah! This is an Anime series which I am now permanently hooked on (this happened after only the first Episode ^_^). It's a very good show, not only because of the above average animation and great music, but because of it's fresh and Inviting plot. While some may say it steals it's body swapping from Ranma 1/2, I beg to differ, as they are used for completely different effects, with different frequency. (Ranma 1/2's changes occur constantly, while Fruits' happen onceand a while. Overall, this is one of my favorite series.
