Fruits Basket General Manga Review


Fruits Basket by Natsuki Takaya

Check out: Reading Challenge 2010
& *Phoenix* Books 2010


Tohru Honda has found herself living in a tent after the death of her mother. A family living near her, the Sohma family, took her in after they found her tent covered in a mudslide after a stormy evening. But the Sohmas have a secret: each one is possessed by a spirit of the Chinese Zodiac and "outsiders" aren't allowed to know. Because Tohru accepts them for who they are, she is allowed to know. Her love for all of them and for them to be happy drivers her to find a way to break the curse. Will she be able to find a way, or will she find that there is not way to break the curse?

Fruits Basket is a romance and comedy novel by Natsuki Takaya. It's a long series, but Volumes 1-16 have been enthralling, suspenseful and full of little quirks and giggles. Many of the guys look girly and a couple are cross dressers, but it all helps add personality to their character, and every character has a reason he/she does what he/she does.

I LOVE this manga! It's funny, uplifting, thought-provoking, and love filled. Thoru, Kyo, and Yuki are the center of a love triangle which is the bulk of the book along with the Zodiac curse. If you're looking for a bit of suspense, romance, and witty remakes, Fruits Basket is a good choice.

I would recommend this book to EVERYONE that's how much I love it!! <3

After finishing the series...

After reading the last couple volumes, I almost cried the ending was so sweet. Everything just worked out. *sigh* Makes me love it even more...
(Not to ruin it, I'll leave it at that.)
