Akito is the head of the Sohma clan. Akito is very frail and has poor health. He often runs fevers and rarely walks out of the main house other than to greet some of the Zodiac members, such as Yuki and Shigure, that live in the outside world.

Akito has a definite mean streak and has physically and emotionally scarred many members of the Sohma family, but Akito's rule in the Sohma clan is absolute, and none dare oppose him. While Akito isn't cursed by any of the vengeful spirits (mononoke) of the Zodiac, Akito has been revealed (Volume 11) as playing the role of the Jade Emperor (God) from the stories about the origins of the Chinese Zodiac.

A possible part of Akito's curse was that Akito would only live to be 30 years old. Obsessive and somewhat mad. At a certain point in the Zodiac's life, Akito wishes to force them to live within the Sohma compound with him for the rest of their lives in a never-ending "banquet". He even describes himself as the "Master of Their (the Zodiac) Souls". He also has a definite hatred for Kyo Sohma, the Cat, who he believes should be isolated for the rest of his life.

It is only after assurance from Shigure that Tohru can be trusted with the family secret that she is allowed to stay. Akito has no choice but to order Tohru's memory erased should she fail to uphold her end of the bargain. Most of the Sohma family is afraid of Akito and will follow his orders no matter what their personal feelings may be.

Akito is a cruel person who doesn't care for anyone else. He gets sick very often and is watched over by Hatori Sohma, who is a doctor for the family. The cause of his sickness comes from the fact that he won't live past the age of thirty. He is the head of the house is the person who takes the whole weight of the family. In effect, it puts a lot of pressure on him. He does not turn into any animals.

In the manga, it is eventually revealed that Akito is actually female.

The Blog of Akito Sohma...

what am I doing?

The guys wanted to go camping. People know that I can't. But Shigure said that they've been planning to go camping since the start of June. I say 'let them.' If I'm fit to go camping, I wouldn't want to, anyway. Living under nature's providence is too troublesome for me.

When Shigure heard that I'd rather stay home and let them camp, he changed their plans. Apparently, even Kureno-san and other Sohmas are being influenced on an outing. I don't know where they want to go besides the woods. Shigure says that they need vacation. I say 'let them.' I don't need vacation. I'm always on vacation anyway.

Shigure told me that a lot of Sohmas, the "cool" Sohmas, are going on a trip. I wonder who these cool Sohmas are. Judging from the people who are going on this trip so far, I'd say every adult Sohma I know is going. I don't know if I could be called an adult. I don't see any reason why they couldn't go. I say 'let them.' It's okay if I don't go with them, right? What's the reason? They wouldn't want a grouch or a snob like me to a party.

No matter what I do, I can't seem to fit in anyway. When I try to join in the conversation, the people feel stiff; they couldn't act natural. And when I try not to do something, everyone thinks I'm upset with something; an awkward and tense feeling follow. So what should I do? I say 'let them.'

How time goes by so fast, I'm dumbfounded. When time passes by, it brings change along with it. Where did the past Akito go? I wonder. If change is the only permanent thing in this world, are we ever changing? Does this mean that I'm a different Akito? Shigure and the others are still undecided whether to push things through. I can feel that they want to go on this trip so bad and that's why I've been really encouraging them to go. I wasn't mad. I'm not. Maybe the point of their trip is different. Wait. Come to think of it... maybe it is truly different. Seeing that they want to go so bad, seeing that they couldn't go because I wouldn't go with them, if the point of their trip is for me to go with them, I say 'let them.' end of discussion, right?

... thank you. you have no idea how much this means to me.

This morning. I will never forget. Indeed, fate is cruel. It might have been a joke. And you might be laughing. But it was a cruel joke. I almost let go of my body. I almost let go. It's all in the past now. And you have no idea how I feel right now.

The golden ray of light scattered in my room. I put my blanket on my face because it became somewhat bright. I was sure I have covered the windows so that it would be dark. Just like the hope for my future. But I never noticed that I missed a portion of the window. The light bounced around. But there were rays of sunlight that passed through the gap. It felt something special. The light appeared as if my eyes were being lead to something; as if it was a spotlight.

I followed the rays with my eyes and at the end, I saw a package. At the very end of the light, I blinked and wondered what could that object be. It was wrapped in newspaper. I slowly got up and I heard my bare feet walking on the cold concrete. When I grabbed the newspaper wrapped object, I chuckled.


"What is this? A cheap present?" I uttered.


When I unwrapped it. There was a key on top of it. Delicately using the key, I tried to open the contraption. Then I gasped for air while my eyes grew round. It was a music box.


"Shigure?" and inside that music box, was a picture when we were at the amusement park.


I wiped my tears and I just smiled. I put the music on top of the drawer. And I came back to bed. I laughed while I was falling back to sleep. 'Maybe I'm dreaming' I thought. But when I finished my breakfast, the music box was still there.

I closed my eyes

How cruel this world is. Not even a simple picture would fate grant me my happiness. I cannot find it. How would it become lost? It's unbelievable and it makes me so frustrated that I pull my hair off. I was happy. That picture can last for eternity. But the 'circumstances' of the world had to take my happiness away from me. From a simple misplacement, it's amazing and terrifying how much grief, sorrow and hurt it can cause. This is life, right? It's normal to lose something -- even if it's the last light of hope and satisfaction that ease any pain.

lost

"OH NO! WHERE IS IT?!" I couldn't find it! "I'll never have something like that again!" I opened my drawer and it wasn't there. I grabbed all my things in the drawer and thrown them on the floor. I couldn't find it. I pulled out my blanket and it wasn't on my bed. I almost fainted pulling the mattress to see if it's under there, but it wasn't! Where is it?! Where did I put it?! I searched my purse, my pockets, it was nowhere! I opened my cabinet and yanked everything out. I was empty handed. I'm dumbfounded not knowing where I could've put it.

Kureno-san knocked on my door and I yelled at him that I wasn't decent. I spent hours looking for it over and over flipping through the pages of my books, throwing up the clothes laying on the floor, searching under the bed-- but I failed to find it. I didn't notice the time. Kureno-san knocked again because it was time for dinner. I said I wasn't hungry. I may have lost it. I lost my picture taken from the amusement park.

Keep quiet. 9:10 PM

a ride for you and me

I was pestered. I had no choice but to go. Or else he wouldn't cease! You know how dogs are. And when you say no to them, they'll give you this long face that just sucks away any formidable resistance. So Shigure and I went to the amusement park.

I was very hesitant. But how could I argue and reason with a novelist? "It's a Saturday, Akito."

"I can't go out. You know my health condition." I said.

"It's not like we're going to RUN to the amusement park and ride everything wild. In fact, Hatori insists you need a breathe of fresh air. You're going to rot."

"I don't want to go to the amusement park."

"Then let's go to the park or somewhere else. I know someplace open and without much crowd. Letsgo-letsgo-letsgo!" like a drill sergeant.

"Iiya." then Shigure starts dragging me out of my room. "IIYAA!"

"Quit being a baby. Kureno-san, you also agree that she needs to go outside, right?"

"I believe so." Kureno nods.

"Fine! I'll go. Just let go of my leg."


Still, Shigure drove me to the amusement park in the end. I put my palm on my face shaking my head. 'I thought we were going somewhere else!' it's what I just said to myself. I had no more strength to argue.


"We're here! Let's go ride the carousel!"

I just sighed. "Fine. Let's go." then I held his hand while going there. It's not like how when a couple hold hands. It's like when 'mom and child' walking towards the ride.


Goodness. He kept jumping on the horse. He was like 'giddy-up! giddy-up!' demanding the poor horse to go faster when it's THE carousel.


"That was fun! Where do we go next?" he cheered-- like a kid. "Right! Let's try the boat ride!" it was calm at first then... Shigure kept rocking the boat, I was really panicking. I told him to stop and we almost over turned. Afterwards, "Where to next?!" he scared my heart out of my mouth and he asked like nothing happened?! "I KNOW! LET'S GO RIDE THE ROLLERCOASTER!"

"Heavens no!" I won't survive it!

"You're right. We need to save it for later!" Isn't it supposed to be the ferris wheel that goes last?! "Let's grab something to eat!"

"Yes. Please. I'm hungry--" I covered my mouth quickly. I can't believe I said that. I blushed. And Shigure stared at my face looking away.

"That's good to hear." he smiled.


After having a hearty meal we were back on the mellow rides. I think the most 'extreme' ride I had is the bumper car. Shigure bullied me. Not only that. Commander Shigure told his fellow 'children' to bump only at onee-san. The kids bullied me as well.


"Let's get our pictures taken." he said. I quietly followed. "Okay... It's set. The timer's counting! Four... Three..."

"Wait! What're we supposed to sa-"

"AKITO DAISUKIIII!" there was a flash. And out came a strip of pictures. "Oh my word. It's official. You're terrible at this, Akito." I had this confused and crooked smile. "But that's a keeper. Do you need to rest?"

"I'm fine."

"Well then, let's go to the ferris wheel."


We were on top of the ferris wheel. The ride stopped. And I felt a gentle breeze. 'Sugoi Kaze.' my mind felt calm. The view was amazing. The sky was bright orange, while the city lights start to twinkle.


"It was fun." I said.

"Let's do it again sometime." he said.


Just then I realized something. My life is like a ferris wheel too.
