I just have one thing to say
Fruits Basket is probably my very favorite manga that I have read to date Now, I wholeheartedly admit that the premise is weird and unlikely, but, hey, it s fantasy Anyway, if you can get past the initial outlandishness, you discover a story full of heart and darkness This is my fourth or fifth time through the series, and I just love it every time.Having read through a few reviews on , I know that this series, and the character of Tohru especially, gets a lot of flak for being too cutesy It se [...]
This really was an adorable book I hadn t read manga before this one, and I only picked this up based on some of my friends reviews with no expectations But it really didn t disappoint I fell in love with the characters and the story from the beginning There s Tohru, who is very cute, but also awkward with a lot of things, and that resulted into some very hilarious moments And if there are guys like Kyo and Yuki, I don t need anything else There s a secret of Sohma family, in which the members h [...]
Has anyone else noticed how the characters grew up over the path of the series Namely Kyo, Yuki, and Momiji They look almost completely different by the end of the series compared to how they did in the beginning Especially Kyo who looks alarmingly like Tohru s dad I mean look at this Kyo in the beginning Kyo towards the end Yuki in the beginning he kind of looks like a female alien Yuki towards the end Momiji in the beginning d aaaawww MOMIJI NOW OMG WHAT THE FUCK Touru in the beginning Touru t [...]
2nd book read for BTAT2017 read a book entirely outdoors This manga has an enjoyable enough storyline and characters, but the art style really doesn t work for me I might read a couple volumes to give it a chance, but I may just watch the anime instead.
1.5 StarsThis was a boring, hot mess I never read this as a kid and I definitely haven t watched the anime, but I heard that this was really good from a lot of people I m so let down.None of the characters were named or fleshed out, the plot is nonexistent, there s absolutely no emotion to this, and the scenes skip around so much that I could never tell where we were or what was happening It genuinely felt like I d just skipped to the fifth book of a series because I had no idea what was suppose [...]
I LOVE this series It s really cute This was one of the first manga series I ve read I own a few of them As always, I won t add all of the books to my self Way too many.
Initial thoughts 1 I felt so nostalgic reading this manga again 2 Toru is such an adorable, although naive, character Love her 3 Shigure and also Hanajima and Uotani are hilarious 4 The fights between Yuki and Kyo seem to never end.5 Amazing artwork Check out my full review on my blog
This review only covers volumes 1 12 It was last year when I realized that I am so done with shoujo manga stories especially in a school setting It wasn t as if it was a constant presence in my life growing up or anything, but after a while I realized that its formulaic sweetness and often predictable climactic moments just doesn t appeal to me any In fact, there are only three shoujo manga stories I was really into and two of them were adapted to anime which I preferred Ouran Kouko Hostabu and [...]
Total impulse read 4.5 I really just felt like continuing this story I watched the anime about 5 years ago now, and the ending is still bothering me, and I just need to know what is going to happen next Cute, funny, typical rom com anime manga However, I hear it gets darker, which should be interesting.
This volume is Tohru Living in a tent after the passing of her mother, Tohru Honda soldiers through her adversities with a smile on her face After a classmate of hers, Yuki Sohma, discovers that Tohru is living in a tent, he offers to let her lodge at his house with his slightly perveted uncle Shigure and cranky cousin Kyo It is not long until Tohru discovers that the Sohma family have a secret, that they are cursed by the zodiac, and transform into one of the zodiac animals when intimately touc [...]
Rereading this old favorite I love it so much
ALRIGHT I am redoing this review I wrote a review for this long, long ago, but I really want to redo it, mostly because I m trying to read the whole series again.It s just that I watched the whole series of the ANIME, and1 They don t show all of the characters.2 Anime is WAY WAY SHORTER than the manga.3 I just WANT TO KNOW WHAT COMES NEXT I forgot most of the story I only know up to the point where the anime stopped, but I just want to know MORE Besides, the first time reading the whole series [...]
POR QU NADIE ME HABL DE ESTE MANGA
I know I am writing this as the minority point of view, but I hated Fruits Basket At first, I found it mildly dull, but as the story failed to progress interestingly, I found myself grinding my teethe waiting for the plot to pick up It s about a cloyingly sweet, kind, selfless, gentle, beautiful high school girl named Tohru Honda She lives in a tent in the woods really, Takaya because her grandfather can t keep her and her mother died Sweet, innocent Tohru is wrought with guilt because she s sur [...]
5 5 Stars.This was a reread for me and it was just as good as the first time I read it I love this story so much, it melts my heart.A great introduction to manga in my opinion.
SpoilersThis is the second manga I ve read, the first being Deathnote I didn t enjoy this quite as much as Deathnote but it was still pretty brilliant.I found the premise a little odd but not in a bad way The heroine, Tohru, lives in a tent her mum died and her granddad sort of threw her out She doesn t want to be a burden on anyone so she works hard supporting herself and keeps all her misery to herself Yes, she s a huge Mary Sue Anyway, Tohru finds out that her tent is on Sohma grounds The Soh [...]
I know it s an exaggeration to say that something has changed my life, particularly if it s a story from a book or TV series or movie Or at least, it has changed me in shaping my deeply held beliefs Fruits Basket was like that for me, however When I started reading manga and watching anime online at the age of sixteen, I didn t start with Furuba for some reason But when I did, I was hooked I was blown away Now I know what it means to have feelings of the darkest depths of human nature, but to al [...]
Just be yourself and you ll be fine Such a refreshing adorable book As i said before this is my first manga read experience and it was So much Fun, and I only picked this up because i don t have so time to read am working on my magister thesis so I ve been looking for something light ,then i came across the first dubbed episode of this baby and you know what it was HILARIOUS My Darlin My SHIRT From the first moment I fell in love with the design ,characters and the story.So let s start This mang [...]
Review for the entire series This is the first manga series I ever read I spotted the first book randomly in a small bookshop on Balboa Island, a charming little place that I can never get enough of Something about the book drew me to it, but I can t exactly say what Looking at the book description now, you probably think it s a little ridiculous What When they re hugged by the opposite gender they turn into ANIMALS I know, I know But believe me when I tell you this entire series yes, I now own [...]
The F Twins gave this one 5 stars My little sister gave it 5 stars too Noran dropped another 5 star on it also Why I don t like it then WHY This don t make sense It even has cats Well one cat And some of the characters remind me of goodreaders like Tohru at the beginning living in her tent in the woods That s totally K.I Hope She is all sad because she lives in the woods Then there are the side random blah blah blah that sounds just like Sam Black Velvet I swear And then there is is the little p [...]
One of my friends introduced me to the world of manga, and this story in particular And I m so thankful that I cannot express it in words, only sounds that would than likely scare people If you re even wondering about this, I suggest you let your mind wonder and wander until you finally give in If this doesn t change your life, I ll judge you harshly Ha No, but really I m rereading this series for the third time, and I love it just as much as the first As far as mangas go and stories in general [...]
Update Here s my full review bookishrealmreviews 20This was so freaking cute I absolutely loved how the Chinese Zodiac has been incorporated into the main storyline It was a light read and easy to get through I think what was most interesting was the manner in which the Sohma boys all have different personalities based on their Zodiac affiliation Tohru is amazingly cute She s just a bundle of sweetness and I think she s going to end up being a really good fit for the family I cannot wait to pick [...]
Rating based on entire series.I m so sad it s over I never wanted it to end RTC
The best shoujo manga ever Saya punya anime nya di laptop komplit dua puluh enam episode Suka sekali dengan theme song pembuka dan penutupnya.Honda tohru, seorang yatim piatu yang terpaksa harus mandiri setelah ditinggal ibunya wafat dan kediaman kakeknya direnovasi sehingga tohru disuruh menginap di rumah teman Tohru justru tinggal di tenda di hutan Aneh memang, tapi tohru yang naif polos dan lugu menurut saya wajar Orang jepan tahu kok caranya membuat cerita terasa natural, karakter yang kuat [...]
I don t care who you are, male or female, whatever age, into manga or not, this series is WELL worth the read My favorite manga of all time, untouchable, I cannot even begin to explain the magic of these books The characters are the most lovable and relatable I have ever EVER come across The depth of their individual personalities cannot even begin to be described in words Natsuki Takaya created a world so believable despite its unrealistic and comedic foundation, I m nearly convinced that it mu [...]
I bought this as a gift for a friend s son, he s into manga I think manga s not for me It took than a few pages to get into the from right to left bit, because you also have to deal with the upper lower , and I m not sure this one works consistently in that sense The translation is weird, and the story line takes major leaps.ere s a whole backstory which goes ignored for the first chapter, then they give it to you, and the story makes a huge leap forward in the next three pages.I feel like the [...]
To stave off my new manga interest until I can get my hands on Dragon Ball or something else I like I borrowed this boxset off my housemate Fruits Basket is sh jo female orientated rather than what I prefer, sh nen I haven t minded some sh jo such as Azumanga Daioh and Ouran High so I was willing to give it a try.This first volume can be a little confusing at times with some pages seeming to be out of order as they talk about something that hasn t been introduced in a way which makes it seem li [...]
Fun Cute Innocent All of those things But there s also an underlying wit that shows through sometimes, and maybe even a complexity to some of the characters that is yet to be revealed Now if I could just remember their names
