Monica!
I’ve been thinking, y’all, but I want a second opinion.

See, if I gave birth to a tiny little slightly premature baby, and then gazed down at the baby, and smiled at the baby, and took the baby in my arms, and it turned into a tiny little slightly premature rabbit… I’m not entirely sure I would react the way the mothers in this series appear to react. Namely, by going crazy. I mean, for sure it would be bizarre, and I feel like medical journals across the WORLD would be salivating at the chance t

-A more entertaining read than volume 3.

-Tohru, Shiguire, Momiji and Kyo were as likeable as ever. Yuki was more interesting in this one, his antagonistic relationship with his older brother gave him some much needed personality

-Loved Uo and Hana, the way they both looked out for Tohru was sweet. There should be more female friendships like Uo/Hana/Tohru in fiction.

-Yuki's brother Ayame was pretty funny. I enjoyed reading about Ayame, Hatori and Shiguire's friendship as teens.

-Momiji's

This series keeps getting better and better! I'm not kidding! The story in this volume really got intense. I would definitely say that this is the saddest volume so far. You really feel for what the characters go through and you can bet you will shed a tear for these beautifully created characters. I know I was tearing up when I was finding out about the past of some of these characters... AND I RARELY EVER CRY FOR ANYTHING!!! My word... the things that happen... it's... just too heart-wrenching ...more

A really fun and cute series. The premise is really original and enjoyable. The characters are interesting and lovable. My only complaint is the story-line is a bit drug-out.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS SERIES!!!It's about a poor girl (Tohru) Gets taken in by the Sohma family. which the Sohma family has vengeful Chinese zodiac animal posses they Sohma family. ( they can be there selfs it's not like the spirits are controlling them) but every time they are touched by the opposite gender they turn into the zodiac animals. Shigure, turns into a dog (again they have control of their selves not the spirits) Kyo turn into a cat and something else but he keeps that a secret, and ...more

Okay. Fruits Basket can make you cry really hard.
Then it can make you laugh really hard.

You know what gives people emotions like this?

1. Being in love
2. Heart-stopping cliffhangers to various books
3. A dramatic scene in a super dramatic drama.

All of these things can get you feeling super emotional, but FRUITS BASKET is also part of the list!

So thinking about my review for volume 1, the hugging-turns-them-into-animals curse might seem romantic but NOH.
it is a curse. INDEED, it is a curse.

Oh goodness! The plot thickens! Well sorta...

In this volume of Fruits Basket we get to see Haru and Momiji enter high school for the first time. It seems that the humor never fails as the first day becomes hectic and crazy for all the Zodiac members.

At this time, we are now introduced to Akito and Ayame and of course that was very interesting. There is a fear brought in Yuki when he sees Akito and once again Tohru learns about another member of the Zodiac (Ayame).

I think that this book hasn't r

Wow, Akito wasn't exactly what I suspected, (part of it being I thought he was a girl...) I thought Akito was the demanding and powerful type, (which he might be.) and like; SUPER old. But when I first saw him being a lazy-bum on a window sill, (while also looking kind of stalkerish.) that kind of changed.
I'm still debating whether Akito really meant Tohru was cute or not. Although he told her she was cute, (which she is) he could have lied to her to get on her good side, (which I don't see the

Fruits Basket Vol. 4 was awesome. My favorite part of the novel wasn't at all a funny scene. Momiji told Tohru about the reason why his mother doesn't remember him and why he has to stay away from her. While I was reading, I felt so sad that I burst into tears. You would never think that he was carrying that type of burden on his shoulders unless, you were in the family. The lesson that I've learned was that no matter how bad the memory was I still want to remember it. I wouldn't want to take th ...more

This is not one of my favorite of the series, but it's all important stuff. We start learning more about the curse on the Sohmas, and stuff starts feeling heavier than it did before. It's not all fun and games when people are getting hurt all the time. Poor Momiji-kun. I <3 him.

On the other hand, we have some hilarious antics when Haru shows up at school and meets the critical eye of the Student Body President. How does he prove that white is his natural hair color? Well, you'll have to read

Reading this series with my daughter, a reluctant reader with reading comprehension difficulties. Reading a Japanese manga can be a challenge, as you have to read it from back to front and from right page to left page, and the individual image boxes on each page you have to read right to left and up to down, as well. Quite a challenge.
I enjoyed the anime series, but I now think I prefer the manga. Since I found some possibly controversial content in a different manga our library has - Angel Dia

To everyone who seems to think this volume was dark... well, it gets worse.

I'm not going to say this volume wasn't upsetting. I mean, poor Momiji! It's amazing that he still manages to be so happy and adorable after all that. (view spoiler) He's one of my favourite characters, I think. Of course, this is where we really meet Akito for

I know this has nothing to do with the story, but I love how Natsuki Takaya has a Q & A at the beginning of this volume. I like her manga form.

Volume 4 starts off with Hatsuharu and Momijiare now at school with Tohru, Yuki, and Kyo. Momiji’s uniform choice leads to a bit of a scandal but no more than than Hatsuharu’s hair. The way that Hatsuharu proved to the class president that his hair color was actually natural was hilarious.

The very mysterious Akito shows up but I didn’t get any of my q

Synopsis: Fruits Basket is a shōjo manga series created by Natsuki Takaya that follows the life of Tohru Honda. When the series begins, Tohru is living in a tent in the woods after being recently orphaned when her mother died in a car accident. Somehow, Tohru is able to remain optimistic despite all the shit she has had to go through.

While wandering through the forest she's living in, she runs across the house of the Sohma family. As it happens, Tohru goes to

This volume did not take me very long to read at all. It is interesting enough because of the arrival of Yuki's older brother Ayame (who turns into a snake) who is rather arrogant. He takes Tohru out for a meal and as per usual, she is rather innocent and kind to him. Again, Takaya's illustrations are just as beautiful as before and portray every character in the Sohma family or "outside" in a certain way that effects how we feel about the character.

This time, Momiji's past is revealed, and it

This review is also posted at http://readingnookandcranny.blogspot....

Haru and Momiji start classes at Tohru, Kyo, and Yuki's school, which is sure to bring a whole lot of entertainment our way down the road. While Tohru goes to say hello to the both of them at school, we get an encounter and introduction to the class president, who seems like a total nuisance and annoyance. This chance encounter, along with Haru's mixture of black and white hair, leads to a very awkward scene in wh

Dans ce quatrième tome, on apprend que Yuki a un grand-frère, Ayamé (dont l’animal est le serpent), qui fait d’ailleurs une apparition peu discrète. A travers ce personnage, un pas est franchi et Tohru est davantage perçue comme une fille et donc susceptible d’être séduite.

En effet, si auparavant l’amour était presque totalement absent de la relation entre les personnages, il fait son apparition dans ce tome. De la même façon, ce tome voit un rapprochement entre Tohru et Kyô.

I feel that the type of person that Tohru Honda (one of the main characters)is probably kind and free-spirited. When Tohru faces hard things that may be a bump in the road, I feel that she takes it pretty well. The fact that she is free-spirited makes it even easier for her to get over things pretty well. For example; when her mother dies she doesn't take it as if she was going to die without her, she took it as if it was a loss and then moved on. Although she moved on she still is connected to ...more

I've been meaning to read this series for some time now because it's apparently one of the most famous Japanese manga's in western countries! Whenever I talk to someone about popular manga they get baffled at the fact that I haven't read fruits basket. so that was one of my main motives for reading the series. I watched the first couple of episodes to get a feel of what the series was about and I have to say, it's not so bad but not as good as some of the other manga out there that's aren't so p ...more

Momiji!! :'(

So... the last two 'stories' within this volume are both sad so be prepared for a double whammy. The first deals with Momiji (as if you couldn't tell from the start of this 'review'), the second with Tohru.

I do think it interesting that you do go from having a fun story (the introduction of Ayame) to these two, but then you do need the lightness that Ayame brings after dealing with Akito at the volumes beginning... this is certainly a more plot heavy volume than the previous one.

Momiji is adorable and his past is so sad, especially for such a bubbly character. It is interesting to see how this will affect him as he gets older. I did find it a little weird that she "couldn't cope" with having a shapeshifting baby and was driven mad by this. To me, it would have made more sense her going a little crazy over not being able to hold or touch her baby without it changing into something else, rather than not being able to stand the sight of him. Did she not know what she was g ...more

Fruits Basket, volume 4 begins with a new year at school and the addition of Haru and Momiji as first years at Yuki, Kyo and Tohru’s high school. Akito, the abusive, frightening, mercurial head of the Sohma family visits the school, specifically to see Tohru. He tries to come off as being kind, but it’s even scarier than when he’s his normal evil self.

Tohru is meets another Sohma in a shocking way when Yuki’s older brother, Ayame, crawls into her clothing in his snake form. Ayame’s visit is an a

“Strangely enough, when you get older the things you didn't understand when you were a child start to make sense. "When this happened, I should have done that." "When that happened, I should have said this." those types of things. You start to understand rather than regret. It may be closer to repentance. So it may be that I do want to repent and erase the ignorant self from my childhood.” 5 likes
