Ah i so loved meeting Tohru's friends ,Uo and especially Hanajima with all her electromagnetic waves.


I also so loved reading Hatori's backstory .It was so sad and touching .

“To me...she was spring. It was as if while imprisoned inside the dark cage of the inner family...I had completely frozen into snow...and then there she was--fresh, clear spring. It was almost inevitable that..I would fall in love with her. -Hatori”

so after the snow melts , spring comes

It was so sweet watching Tohru getting a

Yet another great volume of Fruits Basket. This volume is one of my favorites. It gets more indepth with the characters and their past lives. We even get introduced to two new, no, make that THREE new characters. Though we do see more of two than three... yeah... I usually don't make sense when I do my reviews but hey, unless you want spoilers, then don't complain! Anyway, I really love this volume. The drama in this one was way more intense than it was with the first volume and it's only going ...more

This was just as good as the first volume — it was perfectly weird and wonderful.

What's what: The Sohma family are possessed by the spirits of the Chinese zodiac, and if they're ever hugged by the opposite sex they transform into their zodiac animal. I still found the premise kind of wacky but in a good way. Tohru (the clumsy homeless heroine) quite literally stumbled onto their secret. She now lives in the Sohma house with three of the Sohma boys — good guy Yuki (rat), moody Kyo (cat),

Two new characters were added: Momiji and Hatori. The curse was developed a little bit further, but it's still a mystery overall. Can it be broken? I love seeing all the characters interact with one another. It's so cute and funny most of the time like when Hana gets both Kyo and Yuki to go back to the house to spend New Years with Tohru, that was super sweet.
This installment presented the problem that Tohru's memories could be wiped by Hatori should he choose or Akito give the order. We also l

Update: Here's my full review!

This definitely was another cute installment to the Fruits Basket series. I was especially touched by the last part where we get to see a more heartfelt side of one the characters. It almost made me strongly dislike the curse. I'm definitely interested in seeing where the rest of the story leads so I'll be picking up volume 3 pretty soon. I also love how positive Tohru is. It takes a really strong person to experience everyth

EEEEE volume two is where the series gets good! We meet Momiji and Hatori which makes me so happy, Hatori's story makes me weep every damn time.
Onto volume three!!
Apr 23, 2017 Kaion rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
I forgot how confidently Takaya sets off. By volume two, she already seems to have settled on her formula for Fruits Basket:
- two parts high school slice-of-life (We get the school festival out early, and often.)
- two parts friendship
- one part tragic backstory
- one part split between fantasy and horror and romance
& four parts heartwarming -- including, of course Tohru's Words of Wisdom(TM), which this volume play on the onigiri metaphor of the previous:

Fruits Basket was my introduction to the world of Manga. Volume 1 introduced the emotional and dark but funny members of the Somah Clan, as well as Tohru Honda, the naive and somehow always cheerful main character. Volume 1 gave us the background of this story, but by volume 2, I expected some growth in the characters, and a more developed storyline (this is where my rating of 3.5 stems from). Honestly, I felt at times like I was watching the lives of these characters unfold, VLOG style, only in ...more
Apr 02, 2015 Colleen rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
This volume gets the highest rating because a good portion of it focuses on perhaps my favorite character of the series- Hatori. Hatori is the responsible one of the older triad (of whom right now we only know Shigure but we will later meet Ayame). Hatori is also the family doctor and the one who erases memories. Hatori initially is portrayed as someone to be feared, but we quickly learn just how deep and beautiful his heart is. I absolutely adore the complicated tortured nature of his character ...more

One of two things happen when you reread old manga. The first is a reaction that goes along the lines of "Oh God, why did I like this?" The second possibility is "Ah, now I remember why I like this so much. I missed this." Okay, there are a few variations, such as the "Lord, this is dated," but essential, it's either you're embarrassed to say you liked it or happy to rediscover a series you missed.

In Fruits Basket's case, it's the "I missed this" response for me. It doesn't feel dated. In fact,

I'm loving the depth of this manga, and how things are similar and yet different to the anime.

There are so many of my favorite scenes in this volume! I love how Tohru keeps finding Kyo on rooftops, usually surrounded by cats. haha!
I love any scene with Tohru's friends, Hana and Uotani. They are both such weird and wild people, and I adore their strange dialogue!
Random Momiji kisses and hugs just make me happy. I really want to see Momiji doing his New Year's dance!

I did NOT like that Yuki was dr
Don't even read this review. It took me so long to get volume two of Fruits Basket that I had no idea what was going on. I love the refresher at the beginning and that helped tremendously but, in reading, I couldn't keep the characters straight so I was a little confused.

The first two thirds felt like fluff, the last third was intriguing. That is all.
havent read it yet i want to freakin read it thow on the internet for free!!!! why cant any one just see that? i came to this website to read books 4 free but i cant and it dosent even have a freakin help bar!!!!! what the heck?!?! this is a retarded webstie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I liked this edition a lot more than the first one. Very cute humor, and I'm enjoying the friendships the main character has, both involving the members of the zodiac, as well as people unconnected to that household. I'm glad this seems to have caught my interest more than the first book.

I didn't expect the manga to be going by this fast (or the anime to cover so little ground). That's good though, at this rate I'll surpass the anime soon. Hooray for new material!

Très bonne suite !

* review soon *
Ugh, the author's / mangaka's portrayal of Tohru really bothers me. She's clumsy, not very bright, clueless, naive and physically weak, aka she can't carry a couple of books without dropping them... Her strengths are cooking, house cleaning, being trusting, selfless, good friend, and cute. ALARM ALARM ALARM! Code sexist portrayal of women! I repeat: Code sexist portrayal of women! And I doesn't matter that other female characters are not portrayed in this way, what matters is that the protagonis ...more

Recommends it for: People who like romance and comedy.
This is adorable.

The art isn't the greatest, I'll admit but it's certainly not the worst. (I've been spoiled by the beauty of "black butler" & "pandora hearts".)

It ok though. the character development makes up for it. Plus, the plot seems to be getting thicker, so that good. I love Yuki & kyo best. :D they're hilarious & so well developed.

I'm biggest issue with this volume is the girls pressuring yuki into doing something that clearly makes him uncomfortable and unhappy. Not ok! J

The plot is thickening. It is becoming darker and more tragic. Its quite amazing how a cute story can be transformed into something like this.

I think it's safe to say that twenty years from now, Hatori's backstory will still reduce me to an ugly crying mess.

I enjoyed this book as much as the first one. It is my first manga serie and I've already fallen in love with mangas. They have so much emotions to show and the content...
And, Momiji is soo kawaii. Well everyone is cute but Momiji is so young and... (okey I know he is not that young). Kyo-kun and Arisa-san, I just can't but to laugh at them.
Hatori-sans story... that was just so sad. I don't get what that Akito's problem is.
But anyway. I love this book. Really recommend this if you like drama,
