Reviews Fruits Basket, Vol. 7

  • Sarah Churchill
    I have mixed feelings about this volume - I really enjoyed Uotani's backstory and seeing her growth as a character, the whole Yuki fanclub thing is getting a bit silly and Hiro is VILE. So yeah, both good and bad here. I honestly don't know how much of Hiro I'm going to be able to take.
  • Ferdy
    3.5 starsPretty good, I especially liked Uo's flashback of Tohru and her mum. Hiro was a bit of a brat though, but I guess it was cute how much he loved Kisa and was jealous of Tohru. Looking forward to the next one.
  • Victoria
    I think this was probably my least favorite of them all so far. Simply because I just didn't find it nearly as funny or as interesting as the others, but I still liked it nonetheless. I especially liked seeing how the friendship between Tohru, Kyoko and Uotani got started. I love the way they stand up for each other.
  • Kate ~SuPeRhErO~
    Either I had really low expectations when I first read this or I am just too critical for my own good now.This volume starts off when Hiro is introduced. He is undeniably rude, bosses people and complains all. the. time. I think Kyo should've smacked him around instead of just delivering empty threats. Hiro's excuse for being an unbearable little (insert worst possible insult here) is because he admitted his love for Kisa to Akito. Wait...wha?? W...

    I remember the episode of the anime that we met Hiro. I couldn't stand this kid. I don't care what he's going through. He's a little jerk. He needs to learn some manners.I like the chapters that go into Uo's relationship with Kyoko. It's pretty cool to see Uo's background. It also gave a little more insight into Tohru's relationship with her mother. Kyoko sounds like she was really awesome. It's sad that she died.The last chapter I remember from ...
  • Cath
    Nothing really happened in this one..I mean we met Hiro and I sort of hate him tbh.Onto volume 8!
  • Rain Misoa
    And I will never give this series anything less than a five. There. I just saved you from hanging around my nutty self and seeing what I have to rave about this time. That's right. This review is more raving and more craziness... so... just warning you now. So, let's get started!!! Oh my word!!! This volume was amazing! YES! It was amazing! You got to see another member of the Zodiac, Uo's past, and even see retarded girls fond over Yuki. Okay......
  • Lanie
    A nice addition to a great series. I love the kid possessed by the spirit of the ram. & the character development here for Uotani is amazing. :) recommended to fans of manga and urban fantasy.
  • Ronyell
    I will admit that I actually saw the anime series of “Fruits Basket” by Natsuki Takaya way before I read the manga series, so everything that has been going on in the manga series is way different from what I have seen on the anime series. In this volume of “Fruits Basket,” Tohru meets a new member of the zodiac who is a little boy named Hiro. But unfortunately, Hiro does not seem to like Tohru since he believes that Tohru is trying to ta...
  • Laura
    Saber más de Hiro Sohma y de Arisa Uotani siempre es bueno <3La verdad que la madurez de Hiro es impresionante para un niño de 12 años, aunque llega a ser repelente es al mismo tiempo muy tierno y adorable (aunque a él no le guste mostrar ese lado más débil).(view spoiler)[ me resultó curioso que en el anime la reacción de Akito a los sentimientos de Hiro hacia Kisa estuviera mucho más suavizada, en el manga le da una paliza de impresió...
  • Sylwia (Wish Fulfillment)
    I'm so glad that we finally got to see Uo's backstory and how she met Tohru. As always, yet another volume of this series brings tears to my eyes. (I would love it if Uo's relationship with her father would be shown in the future.)
  • Benjamin
    The amount of heart and love in this series is really out of this world. I can't tell you how many times I almost cried. Every character has something going on and they all still take time for eachother. Can't wait to read more.
  • ☞Sierra☜ Bookworm☺️♪
    I've never liked Hiro very much, but I really enjoyed Uotani's backstory! Tbh now I kind of ship her and Tohru but I ship Tohru with almost anyone in this series so \_(ツ)_/ I've never liked Hiro very much, but I really enjoyed Uotani's backstory! Tbh now I kind of ship her and Tohru but I ship Tohru with almost anyone in this series so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  • Kat (Lost in Neverland)
    Eh, I didn't think this one was as good as the others. (Maybe because I'm so in love with vol. 6 right now....)
  • Emma
    Nah, I'm out. This is just not for me.
  • Becky
    The problem with cannonballing a series is I never have anything to say after each book except WHERE IS THE NEXT ONE?????maybe that's all I need to say...
  • Gabby
    One of the best volumes of this manga so far! So much more storyline and new characters compared to some of the previous volumes! I Love Kisa so much, (especially since she's my zodiac). However, I do think Takaya should have spread out all of this action and storyline into some of the previous volumes, as I do think some of them were a bit dull.And what the heck is Akito's problem? I hope someone kicks his but... badly

    2.5 stars
  • Sophia F
    Wow, lots of things happened in this manga.We met Hiro, probably the most snotty arrogant child ever. First of all about him, although he is very rude, his childish love for Kisa is so cute, it's almost reasonable how jealous and mean he is. I can tell that Kisa likes him back too, but definitely not as passionately as Hiro. The way we first meet him kind of irritated me, because if there was a little kid who asked for his shoe, I would have give...
  • Carina
    Once again my 2014 review of this volume ( pretty much sums up my thoughts on this still. Hiro is an annoying little brat who I seem to dislike more on each read through, Kyoko is a freaking awesome character, and things are really going to start moving soon.Again in my earlier review I said I know Hiro is likely written to be annoying, but my goodness do I dislike pretty much everything about him. I am gl...

    Overall Rating: A to the cute powerSynopsis: Fruits Basket is a shōjo manga series created by Natsuki Takaya that follows the life of Tohru Honda. When the series begins, Tohru is living in a tent in the woods after being recently orphaned when her mother died in a car accident. Somehow, Tohru is able to remain optimistic despite all the shit she has had to go through. While wandering through the forest she's living in, she runs across the house...

    3.5 / 5 stars ratingThis review is also posted at http://readingnookandcranny.blogspot....Well, the first portion of this volume starts out with the introduction of yet a new annoying character in the form of Hiro. This little kid is such a rude little punk that if I were in this manga, I would Kyo kick him in the face. Tohru, probably the single most polite and nicest girl in the world (if she actually existed) tries to be nothing but nice to Hi...
  • Burney
    An inhuman super strong girl, a gangster baker, and a guy who falls asleep when he's hungry. This manga is a laugh-out-loud sweet shoujo story! I thought this was hilarious and really sweet!
  • Sabrina
    I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS SERIES!!!It's about a poor girl (Tohru) Gets taken in by the Sohma family. which the Sohma family has vengeful Chinese zodiac animal posses they Sohma family. ( they can be there selfs it's not like the spirits are controlling them) but every time they are touched by the opposite gender they turn into the zodiac animals. Shigure, turns into a dog (again they have control of their selves not the spirits) Kyo turn into a cat a...
  • Lesley
    OK, wow. Either I was remembering this series through a romantic rose-colored haze, or my tastes have totally changed. There are so many obnoxiously annoying characters in this series, and this volume had the worst one so far. I was ready to stop reading it right in the middle of a sentence, but then I keep thinking about how much I remembered loving this series, so I soldiered on until the end.Sure, there's some really nice characters, and somet...
  • Nikki
    I think it's safe to say that no one likes Hiro? Because honestly, he is a little shit and, not a very likable little boy when we meet him. The reasoning behind his being a jerk is revealed to be half jealously of Tohru and, half self guilt that he couldn't protect Kisa, which makes him a little less of an annoyance.The absolute free reign Akito seems to have to do whatever they please to the members of the zodiac frightens me. WHERE ARE THESE CH...
  • Kailey (BooksforMKs)
    In this book, Tohru's friends can't stand seeing her in her old middle school bathing suit, so they pool their money and buy her a new one! While they are shopping, Uotani opens up about her past running with a gang, and how Tohru's mother helped her find self-respect again. I love the flashbacks!We meet Hiro Sohma for the first time here, and I hate that stupid kid so much. He's consistently rude to everyone, and while I understand that comes fr...
  • Carina
    Ech, Hiro. I am glad that he doesn't really appear as much as the other zodiacs (though certainly more than the monkey and the bird!)as he really annoys me (though I do think he is meant too!). Yes he has his own little sad backstory (like I said in my review of volume 6 there are very very few who don't) - I think I actually forgot what Hiro's was, but I don't feel sorry for him I feel sorry for the one who got hurt through it all. I am glad tha...

    Favourite Character: HatoriAfter Kisa sleeps over with Tohru, a jealous and smart-alek Hiro Sohma confronts Tohru and steals her mother's picture. With Momiji and Kyo's help, Tohru recovers it, and Kisa makes Hiro apologize. Kisa realizes that Hiro, who had been growing more distant, does like her and is just awkward about his feelings. Hatori tells Shigure that when Hiro told Akito he likes Kisa, Akito beat Kisa badly, and Shigure says that one ...
