Reviews Fruits Basket, Vol. 3

  • Merb
    🐱 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, g...

    *Flails* OH MY GOD!!!!!!!! HARU WAS IN THIS VOLUME AND IT EXCITES ME SOOOOOOO MUCH TO SEE HIM IN ACTION!!!! HOW I LOVE THIS MAN! BOY! COW! WHATEVER! YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN!!! *Piano falls on head* Oof! @[email protected] ...thanks. I needed that. I got a bit too fangirly there... heh? *Ahem* Anyway, as you probably already know...

    I am hardcore shipping Tohru and Kyo and it's only VOLUME THREE. I have no shame!! (This from a previous Tohru x Yuki shipper til like the very end too) Every time they have one of their deep conversations and get to know each other better or Kyo does something really nice for Tohru, it makes my insides go all gooey
  • Cath
    5/5 stars.First book of the year! I've just decided to reread this series again, I love it so much. :') Third time rereading it and I still notice things I never noticed before. :D
  • Victoria
    I loved this addition to the series. It was so funny and entertaining. The banter between the characters is the best. I love all of the awkward and embarrassing moments that the characters experience frequently makes this series hard to put down.
  • Farhin
    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, natural...
  • Cath
    5/5 stars!!I'm falling more and more in love with this series all over again. And Haru! We got to meet Haru! :)
  • Ferdy
    3.5 stars - Spoilers-Pretty good but not as enjoyable as the previous two volumes.-Tohru was still as likeable and ditzy as ever.-Yuki was blah. Definitely not a fan of the potential Yuki/Tohru pairing. -Loved Kyo and Momiji. Haru was pretty good too.-Liked the onsen tour, and the double date with Kagura/Kyo and Yuki/Tohru. -The only thing that was disappointing was the dialogue/story didn't always flow well or make sense. — it made for frustra...
  • earthy
    Introduces the punk-tastic Hatsuharu and a bit of his backstory, as well as giving Momiji a chance to show off his extreme wisdom in the story of "The Most Foolish Traveler in the World." Fabulous Shigure/Hattori interactions, and I especially love the very last page of the book where Shigure is gleefully proud of his present for Tohru (a maid's outfit), and Haru warns him not to get himself arrested. Added bonus: the introduction of Mogeta, the ...
  • Sylwia (Wish Fulfillment)
    Another great addition to this series. Again, we meet more of the family, but most importantly the subtle larger plot continues to grow and we find out who is pulling which strings. I loved this and cried during it, as seems to be normal for me during this series. I look forward to the next volume!
  • Ijeoma
    As usual, I am never disappointed with my Fruits Basket journey. There are major developments in this book. Several characters are experiencing growth and learning to come to grips with who they are and how they feel. We continue to meet more members of the peculiar Somah family. I find that I am intrigued by the members and their association with the different members of the zodiac sign. At times, the storyline appeared quite childish; however, ...
  • Lexie
    Volume 3 aka HEY MOMIJI MY LOVE MY SUNSHINE MY EVERLASTING JOY IN LIFE. Also Hatsuharu...who is 15. I must keep reminding myself of that because when he goes "Black" its kind of sexy (I blame most of this on the anime, the English Voice Actor had a hot voice). Welcome to what happens when Yuki over extends himself, Kyo doesn't QUITE understand his feels and Shigure is...:sigh:Oh! And though we don't know WHO she is quite yet, we also meet Ritsu's...
  • dani! ❀
    This series--gosh, I love it. I can't actually express how much I love it. (Also, this is obviously better than all the other volumes because Kyo's on the cover! Yes!)Introducing Hatsuharu and... someone else. (It might just have been Hatsuharu...) He's interesting. All the Sohma's are interesting, actually. He's sort of like Kyo, but less severe, and he obviously likes Yuki more. (view spoiler)[Sort of awkward when he spontaneously declares that...
  • Lanie
    :D this manga is so cute. My friend Karri recommended it to me, and I'm so glad I have it a chance.Seriously. Super cute! Like, a painfully fluffy overload of sappy cuddle party cuteness. :D Which is SO different from the kinds of manga I usually read. Seriously, just look at my manga shelf. It's literally overflowing with dark and gore-filled mangas like "black butler" "attack on Titan" and "Tokyo ghoul". (Although, I am trying to widen my horiz...
  • Kailey (BooksforMKs)
    In this volume, we meet Hatsuharu with his wild hair and dark side. I love this guy! I think it's hilarious how the guys are always fighting and Tohru is so upset, always trying to make peace between them, but in the end all these zodiac guys really do care about each other.They may fight and get on each other's last nerve, but they are still family.I love the whole storyline with the Valentine's chocolates. It's funny how something so small can ...
  • Sophia F
    Hellos Fruits Basket lovers!! I have finished volume 3, and it seems so much happens in each volume it's hard to keep track of everything!A new character joins us, Haru who looks kind of hot, (*giggles*) and interrupts an intense race during school. Kyou and Yuki run so fast, I'd probably get out of breath and pass out just from watching them...Tohru also gave chocolates to everyone using her own money, (where's mine...? :'( ) and the Souma famil...
  • Kunori
    Hatsaharu's epic bike sceneis a great opening to volume 3. The fact that Yuki just stuffed negi (Leeks) into Kyo's mouth is absolutely hilarious. The dramatic and hilarious fight between Hatsaru and Kyo... It's definetaly amusing. Ahh... And the sudden encounter with Kyo's 'Love', Kagura. She's really funny and made me want to read even further to the book. Not forgetting my favourite panel: Shigure with the maid dress to 'repay' Tohru for the lo...
  • Aimee
    Soooo what if I'm read a manga? I swore to myself in high school that I would never become one of those obsessive girls - its just weird. And I have stayed true to that promise. But I have to read these. There's no going back. The story and situations the characters find themselves in are nothing short of hysterical. Yes, Fruits Basket is my greatest guilty pleasure. I love it.
  • Jezire C Akin
    I am absolutely loving this series.
  • Sarah Dragneel
    its dank
  • Bradley
    The graphics convey such interesting emotions. Amusing to the extreme. =)Reread review.. excellent condition and a fabulous story. =)
  • Hannah Heath
    Momiji telling the story of the very foolish traveler? Made this volume awesome. I love how this series can be both hilarious and touching at the same time. Excited to read the next volume.
  • Romi (likes books)
    MOMIJI. That is all.
  • Amy
    My favourite volume so far, and I totally forget why... Hatusharu and Momiji!
  • Becky
    Read these. They're amazing.
  • R Z
    Kyo is already so in love with Tohru it's not even funny. (Okay, it's a little funny.) Momiji is, as always, still super creepy— one of my least favorite characters in the series, for a terribly unpopular opinion. Also, the age differences between the gang and the Mabudachi trio don't make sense considering Hatori is supposed to be a full-ass doctor, and Shigure is already a highly popular novelist. Blagh, and Ritsu's mom— do you know how man...
  • Sophie
    Ahhh FINALLY there seems to be a plot evolving! The previous two volumes has spent a lot of time introducing characters and setting up the story, but I enjoyed this volume as there are hints that everything may not be as it seems, and some characters may be rather multifaceted...I still can't say that I've fallen in love with this manga yet, but I am intrigued to see how the storyline will develop.
  • Denise
    In vol.3 we meet a new character, Hatsuharu Sohma(the ox/cow). He has sort of a split personality, when he get mad( when ever Kyo is around) he goes to Black his other personality. He also has a really deep admiration (love) for Yuki. Also I really love the story Momiji tells Yuki, Tohru, and Kyo about"the most foolish traveler in the world" which was about always looking on the bright side of life! . This series can be described in a few words(r...
