This one felt a little like 'filler' story-wise, but it was nice to see Tohru being something other than super-sickly-positive all of the time. I do love that about her, but a little weakness made her feel a bit more realistic. Otherwise I'm not sure anything actually happened in this volume. Good job I have the next one waiting for me ;)
Another fun, light-hearted read.
Even though there's not usually much of a storyline in Fruits Basket, I still find the series really enjoyable. The only thing that bugs me is that the dialogue can be quite weird at times.
I loved Tohru, Kiyo, Kisa, and Momiji's characters — they were all so cute. Kiyo was as adorably moody as ever. It was sweet how worried he was about Tohru when she got a cold, and I loved that he cooked for her and made sure she was resting. I really want them to get together,

I love this manga. It makes me laugh, it makes me sob, it makes me smile, it gives me the feels and overall, it warms my heart up even in the darkest days. Plus, this is probably my favorite of the manga series till now for many reasons. First of all, my favorite character (Hatori) is psychoanalyzed a lot in this.

Second, a character that means a lot to me appears. This is Kisa, the girl who is bullied and has stopped talking due to her depression. Believe me, I know exactly how this fee

🐷 This volume is Kagura! 🐷

During volume 5 of Fruits Basket, we meet the young and sweet Kisa Sohma, whose trauma from bullying has resulted in not only closing in on herself, but also resorting to failure of speech. Her fear of opening up is a mirror to Yuki of his childhood and makes him tackle the fact he has not changed head on. The emotional trauma the Sohma's have experienced is something that connects them all, and the light of positivitiy in Tohru helps open them all up to face their demo

I enjoyed this one. It was much sadder than the rest. I think the reason why Tohru has become so depressed over not doing well in school is not because she's being overdramatic, but because she has set her expectations so high. She promised her mom who has since passed away that she'd graduate and now feels like a failure.

I love how the narrator gets increasingly snarky.
"I'm sure they're just fine!" ("They're not fine.")
"STOP MANIPULATING HER!" ("Now they're being manipulated.")
So much sass from you right now.

I enjoyed this. I’m looking forward to reading the other books in the series.

So... I fangirled over this volume as well. Why? Well, it's Furuba, duh! No, seriously, this was another great one! I enjoyed this story as much as I did the previous four volumes. You see more of HATORI!!!, Ayame, Shigure, HARU!!!, Tohru, Yuki, KYO!!!, and a new character! *Squees* Of course, there's more background story revealed and just a whole bunch of craziness that makes it all the more enjoyable to read.

ELLOHAAAAAY!!! (Pig Latin, for: HELLOOO!)
Fruits Basket: One of the best manga series, but with extremely stalkerish people.
Yuki I can expect be kidnapped and trapped in a basement once all of his fangirls from school realize he's not immortal and can get close enough to take him away. (Btw, if everyone thinks Yuki looks so much like a girl, why is everyone 'falling' for him...?)
I don't think Yuki looks THAT much like a girl, only if you look really hard into your imagination, and his brother Aya

Lol. The yuki fan club is jealous? Hilarious. :) love this series. So funny and cute. Kyo trying to be nice is beyond precious. :D this series is adorable. Love love love. Kyo cheering Tohru up & the Jason jokes were my favorite parts. Recommended for fans of romance and comedy. & manga lovers

It would seem the author and I have the same tastes in video games. Hilarious. Great drama throughout this tale. =)

Reread review.. This book is in great condition and still had the magnetic strip inside. Were these books even read by the original owner?

This reminds of listening to a young kid playing house and the odd, stilted dialogue they make up as they play.
The cover of this volume is Kagura, one of my favourite characters (and DEFINITELY my favourite female character). It also introduces us to Kisa, another member of the Cursed Twelve Animals...


it's so boring. It feels more like a bunch of filler than actual important stories. The last chapter was by far the worst, choosing to focus on Yuki's fangirls rather than any of the main characters (even though we got to see Hanajima and her brother).

Honestly, this was the worst volume so far :\

In volume 5 it's golden week! So Shigure takes them and Hatori Sohma to a vacation home!

Then they get home, Hastuharu Sohma( the ox), is there, with something being covered up by a coat. It's a cute kitty.. Really, it's Kisa Sohma( the tiger). She's lost being able to speak because of teasing and is fearing that if she speaks, what she says well be laughed at. Kisa and Tohru become really good friends. Kisa is adorable!!!!

I think since I'm not loving the books, but I want to know what happens in the end, I may just have to get the final volume to read (is that in the 20s or 30s?). More apologizing from Tohru, and there is a strong vein of misogyny in the book. Not sure if that is intentional, or simply Japanese culture. Telling girls they don't do well on tests because they are doofuses does not fly with me. Stand up for yourself woman!
Again, not much happens. However, I did really enjoy the chapter where Himajima scares the Prince Yuki fan club! I think she's my favourite character - I'd like to see more of her in the next volume. Also, good cliffhanger.
The format that I was reading this in annoyed me (not the manga's fault, it was where I was reading it from), but the story was cute.

Kisa! And the definite parallels of Tohru being mothering to her and Yuki wishing for something of the sort (view spoiler)

This is a partial review, but you can check out the full thing on my blog!

Okay, first of all, this series is so good. I find myself always smiling when I read this manga, and I especially loved the anime as well. So when I was down to the wire on my 2017 Goodreads Goal of 50 books, I needed a quick, enjoyable read, and so I turned to this next installment! I finished it within the day and loved it so much.

I've never made a review for a manga before, but I'm treating it a lot like I would a norma
