    This volume is Kyo In the third volume of Fruits Basket, the story and characters really begin to get into their groove The illustrations, both chibi and realistic, are just perfect at capturing the feel of this story During this installment, we follow Tohru as she attempts and due to certain events fails to complete her schools endurance test, makes Valentine s chocolates for her friends and all those from the Zodiac she has met, goes on a double date with Yuki, Kagura and the emotional This volume is Kyo In the third volume of Fruits Basket, the story and characters really begin to get into their groove The illustrations, both chibi and realistic, are just perfect at capturing the feel of this story During this installment, we follow Tohru as she attempts and due to certain events fails to complete her schools endurance test, makes Valentine s chocolates for her friends and all those from the Zodiac she has met, goes on a double date with Yuki, Kagura and the emotionally blackmailed Kyo, and has a nice and relaxing trip to the Sohma hot springs with Momiji, Yuki and the once again, emotionally blackmailed Kyo We are introduced to Haru in this volume, who brings a refreshing and very Fruits Basket esque humour to the story We get some insight into his past growing up as one of the 12 Zodiac, and are give another snippet into what seems to be a rather lonely childhood of Yuki s Momiji also appears segnificantly as well, discussing the story of The World s Most Foolish Traveller , who was so kind he ended up giving away not only all his posesions, but all of his body until only his blindless head remained This is used as symbolism as to whether Tohru s selflessness makes her foolish or endearing When does someone become so kind they are just a fool Or is it even possible to reach that point These ideas are symbolisdd throughout this volume, as we see Tohru do countless kind things that make us question whether we should celebrate the sacfrices people make for others or see it as stupidity Is kindness something to respect This volume of Fruits Basket makes us question just this I love you Tohru Next volume is Shigure

KNOW WHAT I MEAN Piano falls on head Oof _ thanks I needed that I got a bit too fangirly there heh Ahem Anyway, as you probably already know I love this volume of Fruits Basket Mostly for Haru but also becausethings were revealed Seriously, it s painful seeing how slow things get reveled in this manga but that s what makes it so good You want to KEEP READING until the end so that way you ll be able to find out Why do you think I ve been reading them back to back Because I am dying to know what s going to happen next I really enjoyed Takaya sensei s humor in this volume I mean, her humor in all the volumes is just hilarious but in this one it really just shot to the roof I know I ve said this before but I love her comments throughout the story She s always breaking the fourth wall and I really do love seeing that I don t think I ve talked about her artwork before but I must say it s very nice It s not the most gorgeous I ve seen but I think that s what adds to the charm of it Her art style is so simple and cute and I enjoy that so much However, she does draw people beautifully The way she drew Kyo in that one scene where he smiles brightly I nearly died He was THAT gorgeous I was close to losing my head because I wanted to go into the manga and squeeze him to death Or at least until he started purring XDSpeaking of characters OH MY GOD DID YOU SEE HOW AWESOME HARU WAS IN THIS VOLUME BECAUSE I DID AND I JUST WENT ALL MAD FOR HIM BECAUSE HE IS BEYOND SEXY AND CUTE AND WAH IT PLEASES ME TO SEE HIM BE SO GUTSY HE INSPIRES ME TO BE MORE OUT THERE HOW CAN ANYONE NOT LOVE HIM ILOVEYOUHARUPLEASEMARRYMEYOUSICKFREAK Anvil falls on head Oof okay _ I m back Well, yes I do think Haru is a fracking awesome character My failed attempt at not cursing Haru is crazy No really he s crazy Split personality and whatnot He s so sweet when White then so twisted when Black, it s amusing Personally, I like him better when he s Black but that s only because he s so kickass So I can t even properly say how much I love Haru My words will not show how badass he is And this is nothing He gets evenbadass as time goes on, i.e future volumes Seriously, read this manga so you can see how amazing this character is Okay I ranted about Haru and he s not even the main character so my review is a bit out of order this time around but I can t help it we ll get back on track now Okay let s see Tohru is still awesome sweet cute Her ability to accept everyone is out of this world I don t know how she does it but she does Yuki revealsabout himself towards the end which is nice Kyo awwwwww My baby Kyo He s going through such a rough time I want to give him big hug Wait didn t I say that already O_o Anyhow, you might be a bit confused as to the way he acts towards something but it s simple enough to figure out that your head won t hurt much We get introduced to a new character and she s weird XD I like her Okami san is just funny I love how she over reacts to EVERYTHING Momiji so adorable Though we still don t know much about him in this volume, you get to see that he has a very keen insight A character that we do get to seeof that we haven t really known is Shigure Finally, right I do love him but there s something about him something he s planning that we do not get to know until WAAAAAAAAAAAAY later on in the series ACK It s driving me insane not knowing what is going on I need to readto better understand him because I refuse to believe he s really bad I know he s doing some questionable things but there must be a reason to it, right Hatori makes a cameo Talking to Shigure and if he s not his enemy then neither will I be Oh, and fuck Akito Failed at keeping review clean So we don t know him per say but I just really can t stand him _ Whatever I ll try not to hate him too much no promises.Yeah I ranted a lot in this review I m sorry for that not the ranting just that I couldn t structure this into a better review XD It s difficult writing a review for a series you love so much about characters you love so much It s nearly impossible For me, completely impossible but you know what I mean XP I tried I know for a fact my future reviews for this series is not going to get any better so you ve been warned Just save yourself the trouble and go read this manga It is worth your time and effort and love and money However, I feel that I must warn you This is published by Tokyopop and since, I m sure you know, it s out of business, you should probably get your hands on it soon before it s OOP I know that s what I m going to do the moment I gets me my money Parents buying it for me, in case you wondered Go buy it now It needs to be on every manga lover s bookshelf

    In my previous Fruits Basket review, I advised anyone reading to take caution If you haven t already seen the anime in which case you should or read the previous volumes in which case you should , I d highly advise avoiding this particular review too.You re welcome.So anyways, Volume 3 of Fruits Basket After being briefly introduced to Hatsuharu Sohma in the previous volume when Shigure makes a trip to the main house for New Years, naturally we want to knowabout the guy and this vol In my previous Fruits Basket review, I advised anyone reading to take caution If you haven t already seen the anime in which case you should or read the previous volumes in which case you should , I d highly advise avoiding this particular review too.You re welcome.So anyways, Volume 3 of Fruits Basket After being briefly introduced to Hatsuharu Sohma in the previous volume when Shigure makes a trip to the main house for New Years, naturally we want to knowabout the guy and this volume give it to us in the opening chapter.Hatsuharu is perceptive and younger than both Kyo and Yuki Sohma We find out a little about his relationship to those two which involves some comedy and some seriousness too enveloped in comedy Nonetheless he was an enjoyable addition and I enjoyed learningabout him We also got to see a perhapsvulnerable side to Kyo in this volume Shigure teases him to the point where he runs off and whilst he sulks, Tohru gets the feeling that there sto why he gets upset than he gives off It s nice to see a vulnerable Kyo so early on in the series because it gives hope of some serious character development.We also see what Shigure gets up to and some mystery behind his relationship with Akito the head of the Sohma House This is by far the most interesting thing yet since this part of the plot for FB was definitely not explored in the anime due to the length of the series Much like the cap that Tohru has as a precious keepsake from the boy who helped her find her way when she got lost as a child.Valentine s day also occurs and unlike in the anime, Kyo, Kagura, Tohru and Yuki go on a double date to see a movie It was nice to see both girls interacting.Naturally, Valentine s Day has to come hand in hand with White Day which after a little Google searchI found it is held one month after Valentine s Day in many of the East Asian countries.It is a chance for the boys to give the girls gifts and yes our lovable Tohru gets to go to the hot springs with Momiji, Kyo and Yuki as her White Day gift.The readers are then revealed to the fact that Momiji and Hatsuharu are the same age both a year younger than Kyo and Yuki and will be attending the same high school as them in the following term I had no qualms with either the art or plot This will be my favourite series of all time for a long long time to come.I look forward to volume 4

    I love that we are getting to meet other members of the zodiac sign while still focusing on the relationship of our central characters These boys and their love for Tohru will be the death of me It s so refreshing to get sweet, kind, and considerate love interests in a manga Usually it s just the side love interest who s kind while the main guy ends up being a jerk I was also really touched by Momiji s foolish man analogy and its parallels to our heroine That he recognized how hard she work I love that we are getting to meet other members of the zodiac sign while still focusing on the relationship of our central characters These boys and their love for Tohru will be the death of me It s so refreshing to get sweet, kind, and considerate love interests in a manga Usually it s just the side love interest who s kind while the main guy ends up being a jerk I was also really touched by Momiji s foolish man analogy and its parallels to our heroine That he recognized how hard she works for the Souma family and that its driven entirely by love for them speaks a lot to his maturity Momiji might be a brat at other times, but I appreciated that he took the time to educate the boys on what it means to care for someone and did it with such finesse The main highlight, though, was definitely Tohru bringing her mom s portrait to the springs My baby s heart is just so precious and must be protected from all harm This volume covers chapters 13 18 3 stars
