Holla the wood faerie!! This issue was quite an emotional rollercoaster! I swear things are getting more and more intense between Akito and all the other members of the zodiac. Akito definitely was in best form regarding his cruelty and ruthlessness. >_<

Highlights of this volume:

”Who the hell do you think you are?! Ah?!”
“I’m me.”

OMG!!! Yuki-kun actually accepting who he is?! I never thought I’d live to see this day but damn Tohru did it! She managed to give him confidence and I’m so proud!!!

Holy crap. Holy shit. Holy hot dogs on a flaming barbecue.

I was literally shaking with anger, no, murderous rage last night as I read this volume. I can't even rate it because I can't tell if I liked it or hated it. What I hated, despised, wanted to strangle, was Akito. If that motherf*cker lays one more of his slimy, disgusting hands on my Kyo, I will rip. him. apart.

I can't really explain my torrent of emotions I felt while reading it, so I'll just explain it in gifs.

It's so filled with juicy new twists and turns! Hell, you even see some of the truth be revealed to you! Finally, right? Took long enough to find out what the "curse" really is. Don't worry.

Ok... so this was abso-freaking-lutely fantastic! I cannot believe how emotionally charging this volume was. I had to put this book down several times because I was shaking and couldn't take how worked up I was. And in a good way, trust me.

I finished watching the Fruits Basket anime a few weeks ago and was very disappointed that there were only 26 episodes. I love these characters so much, I needed more. So I decided to start reading the manga.

This was great. Just as good (if not better) than the anime. All my favorite characters, like Kyo and Yuki and Shigure, are here. Yay, Fruits Basket! I really think Akito is an intriguing character. I wouldn't say I like him/her but s/he is a very complex character, one that you can't even b

Oh man this was stressful. So much abuse, so much sweet, so much awful. This was scary. At some point this stopped being cute and became scary. I don't know if I can take another, what, 10 books of this? I'm so afraid for them all. ...more

Oh my god. The librarian was right! She likes manga too, and she said this series was really good, but didn't get SUPER good until volume 11. And she was so right!!!!

XD XD XD XD XD XD XD!!!!!!!!

this volume was AMAZING! Really giving some amazing character development to both kyo and Tohru. I love them both. :D at first glance, she really isn't much of a strong female lead. Which are so important for young readers. But as the series progresses and especially

I'm beginning to find out why one acts one way and how some can keep it to themselves, while others grow selfesh of it. In this book the sohma's 'god' came to visit their vacation home leaving many to fear and some to move on. ...more

Easily my favorite so far. A lot of character development happens in this one. And man, some intense scenes with Akito. Finally, Tohru has met all of the Zodiac!

Here we go, getting darker and darker. Also, Tohru is a quiet kind of strong heroine.
3/12 Goodreads Summer Challenge - Not from around here. (Read a book set in a different culture from your own. Fruits Basket is set in Japan.)

Tohru is on holiday at the Sohma summer vacation home where there is a lot of family drama, from an angry introduction to the horse zodiac member to the constant darkening of Akito's nature.

In this volume, there is a lot of Akito drama. Akito is just so, so awful. A classic abuser. They manipulate and gaslight everyone around them, filling the minds of Yu

Emotional upheaval!! GAH! I'm so scared of Akito; that man is horrible and terrifying. He hurt my babies, my characters. I just want to punch him and throw him in jail, and hug my characters and make them happy again. I cannot stand the awful things Akito says. He's emotionally abusive to his entire family, and there's always the threat of violence lurking behind everything, and then he actually physically abuses children and I want to scream. I get so upset!

There are some very sweet scenes with

I never used to like Manga books till I watched the anime version of this manga and loved it so much that i wanted to know what happened in the series after the anime stopped so i started the manga series. Read it even if you dont like manga because it is amazing.
Dani ❤️ Perspective of a Writer
This is an incredible volume! The Akito arc gets really strong here and we learn more in depth why their ability is a curse.

Love the moments between Kyo and Tohru. He is practical and protective when she's particularly flighty!

BOTTOM LINE: Akito brings the drama!

So much happened in this one.


Maybe I cried when Kyou realized he loves Tohru and hid that fact from Akito so that he wouldn't be as cruel to her.

Maybe I cried in general.

Ah, this one is so sad, but so good! Warning spoiler's ahead, so skip this review for now if you haven't read it.
Man, this is a really emotionally intense volume! The beach trip continues, but now it is in Akito's shadow. However some surprises are in store. The final members of the zodiac are at last revealed. We find out the fiery Rin is the Horse, and mild-mannered Kureno who Uo-chan told Tohru about is in fact the Rooster. But... if that is the case, what is Akito? Well, we'll get to that in

Fruits Basket, Vol. 11 continues where the previous tankōbon left off and contains the next six chapters (60–65) of the on-going manga series.

Akito Sohma continues to keep the zodiac with him during the days. Hatori Sohma tells Kyo Sohma not to leave Tohru Honda alone, and Yuki Sohma warns him not to lose it if he meets Akito because Tohru might get hurt. The next day, Akito takes Kureno Sohma to see Tohru, saying she needs to learn she is no match for him, but when he sees Kyo having fun on the

This is the book where everything changes. We meet the rest of the juunishi while everyone is at the summer house, and Akito deides to pay them a visit. We also see the depths of Akito’s hatred for Tohru- he thinks she is trying to take the juunishi from him.

We also earn that after graduation, all of the Sohma kids will be forced to return to the family compound and will never leave again. Kyo, as the cat, will be locked in isolation for the rest of his life.

I forgot how much happens in this book! Here are my notes after rereading Fruits Basket #11:
- Rin's so strong, yet aggressive. She reminds me of a wild horse that hasn't been tamed yet.
- I love how (view spoiler)
- Oh yeah! THAT'S why Kyo wants to beat Yuki so badly. I forgot about that.
- Ugh! Akito makes me so sick! The way he (view spoiler)

It’s so cute to see a budding romance developing between two characters for this volume. Someone’s finally being genuinely accepted by their presence, flaws and all.

There’s hope for these lovebirds to develop their relationship further. If only one continues to improve to be more honest with his emotions, their situation could turn out for the better.

Meanwhile, a rival towards love as well continues to compete in the distance. Will he get another chance to praise her, I wonder.
