    Loving it. Such a wide diverse universe and an amazing way if bringing characters into the story.

    Oh Hana-Chan, you do make me laugh with your lack of running ability. Possibly choosing to read this on a train wasn't the best choice I have made given I did start laughing out loud this morning! Ah well, laughter is good for you right?So, I do think my previous review of this volume sums it up quite well. (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...) - Hatsuharu gets a proper intro here, but really isn't fleshed out at all until much later. Momitc...

    :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...

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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 ...

    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...

    I find it impossible to write about these volumes without spoilers for the entire series, so be warned.A little deeper into the story now. There is still a lot of lightness; (view spoiler)[the fight between Haru and Kyo is played more for laughs than as real threat, for all that Yuki seems worried. Yuki's illness is more serious, although it is again introduction, the reader does not have the pieces to understand what it means for Yuki to be ill,...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    So this volume of the series is a bit more slow paced and less deep than the first two. It mostly focuses on the everyday problems and things that the Sohmas have to deal with regularly.On Valentine's Day, both Yuki and Kyo are wary of the many girls that are willing to follow them around just to give them some chocolate. I feel bad for them because these girls can be pretty possessive and crazy this time of year. Especially with the guys that th...

    (*Sigh) The Foolish Traveler...I remember one of my friends sent me a YouTube video about that story taken from FURUBA, and it was SOOOO CREEPY with creepy music and creepy........-_-" it was just so creepy.About a month later I read this volume and went, "That super creepy story from FURUBA is not that creepy after all...."Still that YouTube thing was the creepiest thing ever. Don't remember the link because it was like 3 or 4 years ago o_o but ...

    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 <3 Something is going down with Shigure and Akito. They are conspiring to do something with the curse and it somehow involves Tohru,...

    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...

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 love this volume of Fruits Basket. Mostly for Haru but also because more things were revealed. Seriously, it's painful seeing how sl...

    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...

    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.

    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 ...
