Don't judge me based on some story and laugh.

Hatsuharu Sohma (草摩 溌春, Sōma Hatsuharu, "Hatsuharu Soma"), more commonly known by his nickname Haru (春), is one of the recurring characters of the Fruits Basket series.

He is the Ox of the Chinese Zodiac. Due to the influence of the Ox, he has a Yin and Yang personality; as although he's usually calm and placid, he can become enraged when provoked. The Sohmas call these two sides of his personality his "white" and "black" sides. He has a reputation in the family for being somewhat stupid, and blamed Yuki Sohma; the Rat, for it when he was a child. After Yuki asked Hatsuharu whether he believes he is stupid, he realized the mental trap and has since loved Yuki. Haru is one year younger than Yuki and later begins attending Kaibara Municipal High School along with Momiji Sohma as first-year students.

Haru had a romantic relationship with Isuzu Sohma prior to the beginning of the series, but she later breaks up with him to protect him until she can find a way to free him from the curse. They eventually reconcile and become a very loving couple.

In Fruits Basket Another, he is married to Rin and the father of twin children Sora and Riku.
