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

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.

Very good trauma. Things are growing a bit darker but still fun. =)

Reread review.. A class trip to Kyoto would have been so cool. Alas.. =)
Carina
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

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

*SPOILERS*
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

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

Nidah (SleepDreamWrite)
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.
Amandal
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.
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

Fruits Basket (フルーツバスケット, Furūtsu Basuketto?), sometimes abbreviated Furuba (フルバ, Furuba?), is a Japanese manga series by Natsuki Takaya. It was serialized in the semi-monthly Japanese magazine Hana to Yume, published by Hakusensha, from 1999 to 2006. The series was also adapted into a 26-episode anime series, directed by Akitaro Daichi. 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
Fuchsia Rascal
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

There are a lot of Kyo and Tohru scenes. I am very pleased.

I somehow feel bad for Yuki and Momiji, though. Y__Y

I'd watched and liked the anime version when I was still a kid.

And, I got no plans for reading it's manga.
Jade
Loved it!! If you like comics, drama, the anime style of drawing or all of the above, this book is for you!

This volume was really bittersweet.
There was sad moments with Yuki's bitchy mother (I think Ayame and him are really starting to get along) and then Tohru sneaks into the Sohma house to talk to Kureno, and find out if he is Arisa's Kureno. He says he never plans to talk to Arisa again, but on the way in Tohru meets Momo, Momiji's sister. Their story is so sad, Momo soooo deserves to see her big brother.
After that it got a bit cute with the school trip, and when Kyo said he would support Tohru

The sentence breaks in the dialogue bubbles were awkward and occurred too often. I ended up...reading everything...like this....and it wasn't...a very....pleasant....experience...

Other than that though, it was great. We get some new development on Momiji and Momo's (unfortunately, I've been conditioned to think that anyone named Momo is a flying lemur) relationship. And of course some angsty moping from Yuki, which I can see will eventually start becoming annoying. It hasn't yet, but please reac

The interactions between Yuki and the student council members are always funny. We finally meet Yuki's mother. (view spoiler)
Michelle
Right from the start this manga had me hooked. How can you not like Tohru? She has to be one of the sweetest people on the planet. All the hopes of breaking the Sohma curse fall on her head. It was interesting to see the relationships grow and change throughout this series. Not only are the characters great, but the storylines were fantastic, although somewhat depressing at times. This is the one series that everyone should read. It was outstanding.
Julia
This is basically the only manga series I can really tolerate. I'll admit, I was really sucked into the romantic triangle, and I LOVE astrology and any kind of zodiac, so that definitely pulled me along. It gets a little exhausting by the fifteenth or sixteenth book (really, I know it's manga, but how many can you make?!) but I just have to read them. Getting a real ending (and you do get one) is worth the wait.
Lara
Aya to the rescue when Yuki's mother is bullying Yuki and Mayu in his parent-teacher conference! He never thought he'd hear his little brother call him reliable! Meanwhile, Tohru sneaks into the Sohma complex to talk to Kureno on Arisa's behalf and runs into Momiji's little sister Momo. There a couple of sweet moments with Kyo as well, but Tohru is starting to feel a bit confused about him!
Heather
Yuki stands up to his horribly controlling mother and Tohru sneaks into the Sohma estate to track down Kureno for Uo-chan's sake. Tohru meets Momo, Momiji's sister who has had her memories erased but suspects that Momiji might be her brother. When Tohru reveals Momo's admiration to Momiji, he finds some happiness. Later, the high school kids go on a class trip.
Rena
There really wasn't a huge amount going on in this one. At least compared to usual. There were still the every so sweet moments which just make you want to go Awww and hug one of the guys, but you can't. If you don't know why, then read the books. You figure out why in chapter 1. Nothing but sweet and tragic love between all the characters.
