    This volume is Yuki What another wonderful and comforting re read of this volume of Fruits Basket This time we get to meet two new members of the Zodiac, the cute and sweet Momiji, and the cold and mysterious Hatori In this volume we get to see Tohru s adorable comparison between onigiri and self love, a similie that is as adorable as it is true Perhaps a person s strengths are like the pickled plum in the rice balls The pickled plum is always stuck behind the rice ball, so the rice bal This volume is Yuki What another wonderful and comforting re read of this volume of Fruits Basket This time we get to meet two new members of the Zodiac, the cute and sweet Momiji, and the cold and mysterious Hatori In this volume we get to see Tohru s adorable comparison between onigiri and self love, a similie that is as adorable as it is true Perhaps a person s strengths are like the pickled plum in the rice balls The pickled plum is always stuck behind the rice ball, so the rice ball can t see it And in this world, everyone has got a pickled plum, of different shapes and sizes, colours and tastes stuck on their backs But because it s stuck on their backs, they may not be able to see the lovely pickled plum that s attached to them, so they d think to themselves I m nothing but plain ole rice But that s not true They ve got their pickled plum safely stuck on their backs And the reason why we are often envious of others is because we can see the pickled plum that s on their backs That is something I always try to remember, that we all have a pickled plum on our backs, even if we can t see it ourselves This volume was very much about seeing that there is something special and wonderful within each person, and that appearances and attitude should not decieve us from what really is inside I cannot wait to continue on with my re read Next volume is Kyo

    Sometimes it feels like the whole world is conspiring to destroy my house Shigure SohmaI feel you Shigure I didn t connect to this volume as much as I did to the first one It dragged in the mud a bit, to be honest, and was pretty predictable Perhaps I ll come back to the series with a different mindset later on, but for now, I m going to go with dropping this one.

    Okay Tohru is so sweet Maybe TOO sweet and upbeat Does this girl ever get angry or frustrated I love her but she doesn t feel real Momiji is adorable I am glad we are getting to meet other members of the zodiac and getting a better glimpse of this curse Why is the Sohma head is nasty I don t know if I really want to meet him I hope he stays away for Tohru

    SpoilersThis was just as good as the first volume it was perfectly weird and wonderful.What s what The Sohma family are possessed by the spirits of the Chinese zodiac, and if they re ever hugged by the opposite sex they transform into their zodiac animal I still found the premise kind of wacky but in a good way Tohru the clumsy homeless heroine quite literally stumbled onto their secret She now lives in the Sohma house with three of the Sohma boys good guy Yuki rat , moody Kyo cat , SpoilersThis was just as good as the first volume it was perfectly weird and wonderful.What s what The Sohma family are possessed by the spirits of the Chinese zodiac, and if they re ever hugged by the opposite sex they transform into their zodiac animal I still found the premise kind of wacky but in a good way Tohru the clumsy homeless heroine quite literally stumbled onto their secret She now lives in the Sohma house with three of the Sohma boys good guy Yuki rat , moody Kyo cat , and pervy Shigure dog Oh and Tohru stays with them rent free in exchange for cooking and cleaning Yea, it was all rather sexist, but it kind of felt satirical I m not sure whether that was intentional or not though The plot was sort of all over the place Tohru s friends have a sleepover at the Sohma house to make sure she s been treated right Then Tohru Kyo Yuki and co sell rice at school, also Tohru meetsof the Sohma family, and then everyone celebrates new year It was actually really entertaining I loved Tohru I was worried that I would get sick of her Mary Sue optimism but thankfully, I didn t Mind you, this is only volume 2 I ve got another twenty or so to go So no doubt, she ll annoy me soon enough.The best thing about Tohru was how funny she was most of the time it was unintentional on her part Things like Tohru falling down because she was walking and thinking at the same time, and her getting excited at the most silliest things, and making really naive idiotic remarks It all should have been annoying but for some reason it wasn t it was just strangely charming I loved Tohru s female friends Hana and Arisa Uo were brilliant They had good personalities that I felt rivaled Tohru s I get overly happy when the heroine has strong female friendships, and I get evenhappier when her friends aren t written poorly just so the heroine can seem amazing, deep and worthwhile in comparison More heroines should have friends as amazing as Tohru s I m intrigued by Hana s psychic powers, I m hoping there ll be some focus on that in future volumes I loved Uo Arisa s attitude she was supportive, witty and confident It was cool that Hana and Uo were genuinely concerned about Tohru and her life at the Sohma s I liked it when Uo and Hana made it clear to the Sohma boys that if any harm came to Tohru they would hurt them Females sticking together, that s what I like to see Yuki was kind of irritating in how great he was at everything, he was a total Gary Stu And his personality was too smooth and bland He was okay but just not my cup of tea Kyo was sweet in that sullen, moody and angry way I definitely ship Kyo with Tohru Momiji was lovely and cute And Hatori was likeable enough his break up with Kana was rather sad The artwork was great But at times it was difficult to tell who was who Also, Yuki looked like a girl in a lot of panels I m finding it easier to follow the dialogue and speech bubbles I struggled slightly in the first volume.I ll definitely be picking up volume 3 ASAP I can t wait to readof Tohru s silliness and Kyo s moodiness
