    This is the first volume I had to read in German because for some crazy reason my library only has Vol 1 14 in English If I m entirely honest it was kind of weird to read Fruits Basket in German but oh well, I ll hopefully get used to it because there are at least 8 volumes left XDI guess I better be grateful they even have the entire series, right lol Thoughts to the highlights of this volume Can I say how much I dislike Akito He makes me so angry Is there even one zodiac membe This is the first volume I had to read in German because for some crazy reason my library only has Vol 1 14 in English If I m entirely honest it was kind of weird to read Fruits Basket in German but oh well, I ll hopefully get used to it because there are at least 8 volumes left XDI guess I better be grateful they even have the entire series, right lol Thoughts to the highlights of this volume Can I say how much I dislike Akito He makes me so angry Is there even one zodiac member he hasn t physically or mentally abused It seems like they all fear him, but poor Yuki and Kyo certainly had to suffer the most My heart ached for Yuki so much T_T Poor boy Plus I think after reading this volume it s safe to say that Yuki isn t in love with Tohru but that he loves her instead Yes, there is a difference Their relationship islike a big sister and her little brother so I doubt there ll ever be any romance between them XD Which would make Kyo the final love interest and I d be so happy about this lol I STILL LIVE AND BREATHE FOR THOSE TINY LITTLE TOHRU AND KYO MOMENTS 333 I swear whenever Kyo gets closer to her I m like AHHHHHHHHHH hearty eyes 333 Their version of Cinderella was hilarious LOL I had to laugh so hard Hana chan was such a funny Cinderella Always thinking about food instead of her prince XD I think there might be a growing romance between Yuki and Machi I mean in contrast to all the other girls and boys at their school she s completely unimpressed by Yuki, yet she seems to know him better than anyone else Machi sees right through his fa ade and she knows that he s lonely So I d definitely be on board of this ship He d so deserve a person that loves him for who he is and not for who people believe him to be 333

makes me dislike people In any case, I really appreciate what this volume does for the reader It makes things so muchclearer and also brings the reader to a place where you think things are going haywire but is also going towards peace at the same time That s not to say things aren t going to go crazy again It just wouldn t be Fruits Basket without all them insane plot twists What can I say I think Takaya sensei did a fabulous job in creating this story What she made Yuki go through and how she made him feel that was the most brilliant thing I have ever seen happen in any manga I ve read and I ve read quite a few Reading this particular volume made me understand Yuki a lotI m glad she did that for people, like me, who might have thought that Yuki was just being selfish I ve said this before and I ll say it again, I never hated Yuki I did like him I was just confused as to why he was acting the way he acted Sensei did amazing in helping me, and perhaps many others, see who he truly was Happy sigh So glad Another thing is I approve of her version of Cinderella a whole lotthan the real one XD It just suits me a lotX3 What can I say I m a women who believes you can do whatever you want But that s all I ll say about that This is definitely something you should read for yourself Especially if you don t normally agree with the norm _ Yuki, Yuki, Yuki This volume mostly centered around Yuki And I m glad for it We get to seeabout his past Him being alone for most of his childhood how he was revered highly yet not known for his suffering it was very heart breaking indeed I had no clue this poor boy went through all that I mean, I knew it couldn t have been fun being locked up in a dark room but my ignorance didn t help me understand completely Now I do and I love Yuki all thefor it Yes It is official Stop bothering me You want to know what I findamazing The fact that Yuki is growing so much as a person He said he wanted to change and, my God, is he changing He s trying his best to reach out to Kyo and make peace with him It s so lovely He surprised me a lot of the time whenever he tried to do something he normally wouldn t do As for Kyo he needstime Yes, he s improving as well but because of all the negativity he received as a child, his relationship is still rocky when it comes to Yuki But I do get the feeling he is warming up to him It s not as heavy not as strained I think for now he s trying to focus on what s going on between him and Tohru which brings me to my next question WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON THERE I m so confused He knows something and he s just not saying it He better say it soon because it s driving me insane _ And Akito is a prick Still has no pity for the asswipe Tohru is another character still growing In a lot of ways, she s still herself from when the series first started out However, she s able now to talk to people when things are bothering her without seeming like a nuisance She still worries about her friends and Smirks we are beginning to see what it s like to be in love Yay She s so keen to other s feelings She sees that Uo still misses Kureno, that Yuki is growing, and that Kyo is acting strangely I demand to know what s wrong with him Anyway, I love her and I have a feeling things are going to get a bitcomplicated for her oh joy Machi is another weird character She s not impressed with Yuki which makes me happy, yes, because it s different but I would still like to know her reasons for it I m just curious Such an enigma, that one Manabe I love how he teases Yuki He makes me giggle Haru, Momiji, Kisa, and Hiro are just cute as hell Their relationship with each other is very strong As it should be Haru you were a genius to tell Shishou about the play Very worth it 3 As for Hanajima, I couldn t imagine a much better Cinderella Oh, my her and Shishou That s just so cute Too bad Kyo doesn t approve OH WELL WE SHALL MAKE HIM MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA 3I am losing it let me wrap this up before anyof my brain cells die This book is filled with a lot of Yuki s history that helps the reader a lot when it comes to getting the full picture It s hilarious and getting a lotromantic as well I cannot wait to seeof the smexy EEEE I m excited So yeah If you like romance, hilarity to the extreme, and AWESOME characters and plot twists, then you really should invest into this type of manga It really is amazing and I m sure you will not regret getting into this series I know I am dying to find out why Kyo is acting so weird and whether the other characters will get their happy ending I must know, damn it Ahem Well, I ve babbled for long enough I m going to get ready and journey into the 16th volume of Furuba Hurry up and meet me there Winks

    This one was far sadder than I was expecting it to be We have a lot of Yuki s backstory He almost seems to be making a realization of some nature About what he wants and what he was looking for when he met Tohru We see him realize things about himself I won t go into much detail about this because again, unless you start from the very beginning you will be lost I love how a good number of the zodiac make an appearance in this volume, even if it s fleeting Some only appear for a single pan This one was far sadder than I was expecting it to be We have a lot of Yuki s backstory He almost seems to be making a realization of some nature About what he wants and what he was looking for when he met Tohru We see him realize things about himself I won t go into much detail about this because again, unless you start from the very beginning you will be lost I love how a good number of the zodiac make an appearance in this volume, even if it s fleeting Some only appear for a single panel This was another good one with good character growth I will grab 16 the minute I find it somewhere
