UGH!!! I CAN'T BELIEVE SOME OF THE STUFF THAT HAPPENED IN THIS VOLUME!!! IT UPSETS ME SO MUCH TO SEE CRAP LIKE THIS HAPPENING! Okay, so we could basically blame all that is happening on Akito. That little spoiled, no good, self-centered, little schmuck needs to get his eyes stabbed out. He needs to be beaten into a bloody pulp! He needs to get shot multiple times, thrown off an 18th story building, and then run over by a pogo stick! That's how bad he pissed me off in this volume! I have no idea ...more

In volume ten of Fruits Basket, everything is normal until YUKI TELLS TOHRU THAT HE LOVES HER HOLY SHIT WHAT WILL HAPPEN NOW?!?!?!

It’s very dramatic, kids, although tempered with a certain air of insanity. Yuki is both incapable of speaking like a normal person (“I might have known all along… in the corner of my mind… what would happen if I opened the lid,” he says to a totally confused Tohru. “It’s so simple. What I have to do… what I should do… maybe it’s difficult because it’s so simple.” Jes

So I tried to make myself feel better by telling myself that this is the half way point of the series only to realize there are 23 books instead of just 20. Oh well, I figure that now that I'm here at this point I may as well see it through to the end especially since reading manga has been a piece of cake. And also very stress relieving.

The things that happen in the particular volume are both interesting and a bit surprising. So I'll just go ahead and try to nail it all down the best I can.

It’s officially getting good.. really, good.

Hiro manages to upset Tohru, though she doesn’t show it of course, but he seems to be watching his mouth a bit more now that Kisa has gotten onto him and has told him how mean it is to treat people that way. He later receives a call and discovers that he’s going to be an older brother, which then sets his anxiety off about his mother falling while pregnant (apparently she’s clumsy). Kisa remarks that it sounds like he’s going to be a great older brothe

Is Kisa not cute on the cover? She really reminds me of Tohru with the way she is drawn.

So volumes 10 and 11 really pick up the pace, I find I read these two back to back, even knowing how this bit of the plot plays out I find myself needing to read about it immediately.

Even before Akito comes into play the whole sea-side vacation has a dark undertone, which is pretty much due to Hiro - I am very glad that Kyo has a word with him, he needed it. The subplot with Hatori is an interesting break fr
Ah, this is the best one of the series so far! All the emotional stuff happening!
The gang are all enjoying their vacation at the summer resort, but the evil Akito decides he needs to "teach them a lesson" and shows up unannounced to ruin their fun.

Kyo teaches Tohru to swim properly, and there's general merrymaking by the beach. Momiji wants to smash watermelons and hunt for beetles. But Yuki is serious as always, contemplating opening his heart to Tohru. At the same time, Kyo connects with Tohru

I been having pretty lukewarm feelings in rereading this series, but I guess as a disclaimer I have to say that even at the height of Fruits Basket Fever, I was pretty much at normal temperature. It's cute for sure but there are things about the story that never really resonated with me now and even back then.

I know this is probably a blasphemous thing to say, but I've never really liked Tohru as a character. She feels underdeveloped and flat to me. You get a peek of depth in this volume, but th

Okay, I have finally read the tenth volume of the “Fruits Basket” series by Natsuki Takaya and I really enjoyed this volume! In this volume, Tohru and the Sohma family all go to the Sohmas’ family summerhouse and are having a great time having fun, however their fun comes to an abrupt halt when *gasps* Akito comes for a surprise visit! Meanwhile, we are also introduced to Hatori’s side of the story about what happened between his lost lover and himself. Will Hatori ever find his true happiness a ...more

Summer is here and our favorite members of the Sohma family head to their summerhouse with Tohru in toe. But when the rest of the cursed family members are invited - and show up - not only do competitions start to form but tensions start to rise.

This volume is a great developmental volume for not only Yuki, but Tohru and Kyo as well. One of the Sohma members finds out they are going to have a younger siblin

One of my favorites so far. I pretty much don't care about anyone outside the family so the part with their teacher was a little long, but the rest was super awesome.

Madre mía, ¿la primavera la sangre altera? ¡Pues para los Soma es el verano!
Este tomo ha estado cargadito de emociones, y es que parece que la saga, en lugar de ir resolviendo poco a poco los asuntos, cada vez se complica más. Natsuki Takaya sigue pisando fuerte, y sus personajes poco a poco van abriéndose y arriesgándose cada vez más.

¿Y ese final de tomo? ¡Madre mía! Menos mal que tengo más de la mitad de la saga comprada y esperando en mis estanterías, porque la tensión y la intriga es cada ve

Very compelling story as always. I only had to wait three days for this one to show up at the library. =)

Reread review.. Akito is truly mean. The depth of emotion in this series is staggering. =)
A beautiful volume... I just love all of them, the Sohmas. And Tohru.

I HATE Akito, though.

It's all fun in the sun at the summerhouse when this volume begins. There's some adorable talk between Tohru and all the boys. Yuki even compliments her swimsuit (wink, wink). It's hilarious the way she has them wrapped around her finger and doesn't even know it. There's more complaining from the most annoying kid in the world. You guessed it! Hiro Sohma. I'm so glad Kisa is there to shut him up some of the time.

Shigure proves himself to be a conniving ass, yet again. He meddles in Hatori's life

All right. All right. I'm not usually bowled over enough by manga to give them five stars, but I finally have to for this volume. Takaya is *good* at slowly revealing details about the characters and connections between them. (view spoiler) ...more
Things are moving along nicely. Hiro roused up my interest in Tohru's father, so I'm hoping we'll get some answers about that at some point. And Shigure sure seems to be having fun stirring things up with EVERYone. I actually quite liked the interlude story about Mayu, and it's interesting to see where the plot is going.

...the sohmas and tohru are still frolicking happily at the summer home: swimming, catching stag beetles (??), fighting, so much fun! then we find out that the kids' homeroom teacher, mayu, was best friends with kana, hatori's ex-girlfriend. she had her own thing for hatori, which shigure picked up on. he decided to cheer her up by dating her, but we know how that ends. hatori comes to pick up a book and sees maru for the first time in a long time.

back at the summer home, yuki develops a fever

It doesn’t seem like a lot happened, but we learn a lot more about Hatori, and that he wasn’t always so aloof. Seeing Shigure with a girlfriend is weird, and something that I don’t think of. It was interesting seeing Akito again, since he so rarely makes an actual appearance. And we have the typical fan art, which is always pretty impressive, and we learn about the year of the tiger. And we have all the side notes and the character list at the beginning.

So it has all your standard stuff in it.
I staid up the other night and I read so many volumes. I really like this cover, Kisa is the cutest. Everyone is growing up so much!!! Getting to the end.

I think the extra star is just for the Hattori side-story. Any happiness for him deserves an extra star.

Anyway, SHIGURE! You conniving-yet-strangely-a-favourite-of-mine man! You, you, you! What are you planning? It's like you're a puppeteer, stringing people along your whims!

Shigure's master plans aside, Akito showed up at the summer home. At his best behaviour, as per usual. Shocker. Off-topic, but how would Ayame be with Akito? Makes you wonder at the possibilities...

I digress.

Anyway, kabuto
Cute. Since most of the main characters are at the beach, you get to see how they have grown and how they interact with each other.

Loved it!! If you like comics, drama, the anime style of drawing or all of the above, this book is for you!
I really dislike when translations utilize phrases specific to the American culture when the culture in the story is NOT American. For example, in this volume someone uses the phrase "I plead the fifth." As that is referencing the U.S. Constitution, a Japanese person would never use that phrase. I would much rather the true culture is highlighted and the translator attempted to find a more fitting phrase.
