This manga starts off pretty slow. I've read through volume 4 and so far I think 1 was probably my least favorite. It wasn't bad, per se, it just takes a while to get into a groove. The plot is pretty unoriginal, but the characters are complex and interesting. I say, stick it out until Vol 2 if you aren't too crazy about 1. As we get to see more interactions with different characters, hear more of other characters' thoughts, and see more of their backgrounds, the series gets much better.

Platinum Garden karya Fujita sensei yang sepertinya base plot-nya sebelas dua belas dengan Fruit Basket (katanya). Tapi menurutku Fruit Basket mengambil rute penanganan yang berbeda meski kasusnya hampir mirip. Platinum Garden sendiri menurutku... bagus^^.

Saya suka dengan jalan cerita yang disajikan meski pemain-pemainnya rada so-so (nggak ada yang benar-benar baik untuk dijadikan favorit^^). Beberapa tokohnya malah menjengkelkan. Ta

Sort of like Fruits Basket in that the main character is an overly caring young lady who is adopted by a rich family with strange supernatural gifts. Unlike Tohru, she is very righteous and not afraid to start fights. Fun and engaging.

Light-hearted and adorable, and leaves you wanting more.
People are going to think that Fruits Basket is all I talk about but if you liked Fruits Basket, you might like this one too. It has similar 'curse' vibes, but no one turns into animals in this one! (At least not yet)

It was cute. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series. Forced to be someone's finace, waking the dead, greedy family, rich snobby kids...
truly makings of a great series!

Still waiting for MangaFox to update the next chapter, but while I was reading it I could barely put it down. Similar to Fruits Basket

Disturbing plot and an unhealthy, abusive relationship. The back cover says it's for teens but I sure don't recommend it for that age group!
