If I can go into this manga and hug every single person (except Akito) I would! They are just too awesome for words. My rants (I will no longer call it reviews because I don’t really review these volumes… I just go on and on about how much I love it) cannot describe just how epic this series is. I wonder if any of you are tired of me saying that! Ah, gomen, gomen. I will try not to say it again. (Watch me fail.) This volume was both sad and cute at the same time. Well, to be more accurate, it st ...more

I loved this one! It was so cute. I like the chemistry between Yuki and Machi. I also loved that Yuki stood up to his mother who was being way too pushy and overbearing as to what university he should attend and what he should major in.

In this volume, Yuki finally has his Parent-Teacher Conference with his mother, and she is horribly demanding and rude. Yuki has to learn to stand up for himself and voice his own opinions before his entire future is decided for him! I'm so proud of beautiful Yuki!

I don't even know what is going on with the Student Council. They are all out of their minds, and I can't keep track of their characters anyway.

The best part is meeting Momo again, and finding out that Momiji plays the violin!! Momo is

Ayame hijacks Yuki's parent/teacher conference with hilarious results. While I like the interaction between Yuki and Kakeru, the whole student council subplot feels a little too much like a vain attempt to draw out the story. The Momiji/Momo plot is sad but doesn't particularly advance the characters.

Yuki is the last to have his parent teacher conference, and this volume definitely focuses on him for a majority. His mother finally makes an appearance, and she is just as warm and fuzzy as you would expect. Yuki, however, starts sticking up for himself and starts branching out and dare I say even make friends!

Tohru meets Momiji's little sister, Momo, while trying to get into the Sohma house for a visit wi

I think this is probably my least favorite volume of Fruit Basket (so far), but, because it was still filled with the characters I love, I couldn't bring myself to give it any less than 5 stars still. It's just the overall fantastic feel of the series that seems to permeate every individual book that I'm giving my rating to, I guess....

Yuki thinks about his future and his feelings about everything and everyone. Yuki is not having a good day is he? And the scenes with Momji were kind of sweet but also sad. He is one of my favorite characters.

Jan 04, 2014 Carina rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
There are a number of sweet stories within this volume of Furuba. The first story here gives Ayame what he wants most, a chance for him to show to Yuki that he really wants to make amends and have a proper relationship, and oh boy does he do well. It is nice to see that for all of his levity and silliness he is capable of being serious when it is needed.

The second story gives us some character growth for Yuki, it is an all right story but not overly memorable. The third story gives us more of a

El consejo escolar está siendo mucho más interesante de lo que parecía en un principio.
Me gusta mucho la forma en la que está expresado como los sentimientos de Tohru han empezado a cambiar, ¿qué sucederá? ¿Se dará cuenta de lo que está llenando su corazón o se volcará en los demás como de costumbre?
Momiji es adorable, y espero que muy pronto pueda alcanzar esa ansiada paz para la que parece haber nacido.
En cuanto a Yuki y Kyo, ambos están haciendo progresos a su manera, y eso me alegra muchísi

We get to meet Yuki's ice-queen of a mother. She's ready to tell Yuki exactly what kind of life he will have without consulting him about his feelings. Ayame shows up and saves the day. It's nice to see him come through for Yuki, and I think Yuki really does appreciate it. There's more student council crap that I don't really care about. Okay, so maybe I'm slightly curious about Kuragi because she's so quiet. But that's the only interest I have in any of them. I have to say, though, Yuki is righ ...more

I think this one's probably my most favourite volume so far.

We start off with Yuki's parent-teacher conference. While Yuki felt like he was suffocating under his mother's controlling tirade, who should come to rescue the damsel Yuki in distress other than his beloved brother, Ayame, in a trenchcoat. The brotherly bond only seemed to deepen further when Yuki came to Ayame's defense and called him "reliable". After which, Ayame proceeded to take over the School Defense Force. Good stuff.

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

A lot happens in this volume!
Yuki needs his self-absorbed mother to go to conferences and Ayame totally has his back. I was not a fan of Ayame when he was first introduced and that is strange since I'm practically in love with everybody in Furubu-land (expet Akito of course--HATE her) but can you say over-the-top and obnoxious,? He is however, very persistent and has grown on both Yuki and me! I find his desire to be the best brother possible (plus his love of designing cosplay outfit

Really enjoyed this volume. There's lots of interesting Yuki bits, plus some nice Ayame time as well. Then Kyo is cool. Tohru is... well, I'm getting just a bit tired of her tears and humility and stuff, but she's still pretty cute.

I'm such a huge fan of Kyo/Tohru, but this volume made me fall in love a little with poor Yuki-kun.

This is the point where I totally fell in love with Momiji! He's a violinist and that is exactly what captures my heart!! The sadness that Momiji has to pull himself through brought me to tears and knowing Arisa and Kureno arent' together was frustrating me!!

This book was great, because of all the humor. I love the series and you have to read all the books to understand what is going on in the story. This book holds a lot of information. It was a good book.

Fruits Basket is like a pscyhology/trauma/abuse textbook in story format. In the best possible way. If I was a professor or instructo teaching psychiatrists or therapists, I would make them read this series. So evidently well researched and thorough. Brilliant.
Nicole (Reading Books With Coffee)
With each passing volume, it seems like there's more that happens. Tohru's relationship with Yuki is questioned by Kakeru, and when Kyo pushes away that girl, she wonders if he'll push her away eventually. I feel like this is the volume when things start to change between Kyo, Yuki and Tohru. And since there are only 10 volumes left, things will start happening at a more rapid pace.

Like with every other volume, I love the artwork. It really is getting better with each volume, and I love that you

The series tells the story of Tohru Honda, an orphan girl who, after meeting Yuki, Kyo, and Shigure Sohma, learns that thirteen members of the Sohma family are ...more

Ahhh, this volume! We start off with lots of overwhelming feelings regarding Yuki, his family, and his low self-esteem. I wanted to cry, honestly. Then a detour to Uo-chan and her troubled love life, and just what is the point of Kureno? And finally, we have the class trip, where everyone around our group is declaring their love for each other, and will anyone in our group...? Kyo's feelings continue to grow [and there is an absolutely adorable panel of him hanging out with another cat] but he s ...more

Felt fairly filler-ish, although if Momiji and Kyo are in it? I don't care. And that scene with Ayame and Yuki- MY HEART BE STILL.
