And speaking of secrets, Akito makes a major announcement--one that will reveal his true identity and change the Sohma family forever!
"Fruits Basket, Vol. 11" Reviews
WHY!? JUST WHY!? HOW CAN ALL THIS BE HAPPENING!? IT MAKES ME SO UPSET! I CAN'T HANDLE MUCH MORE OF WHAT'S GOING ON HERE! Okay, people! Listen up! This volume has a whole bunch "WTF!?" moments! It's so filled with juicy new twists and turns! Hell, you even see some of the truth be revealed to you! Finally, right? Took long enough to find out what the "curse" really is. Don't worry. I won't tell you. I'll let you find out about that for yourself. But man... wasn't that crazy? I was so angry throughout most of the book (no thanks to Akito) and was at the edge, literally, at the edge of my seat because I just HAD to know what was going to happen next! ...I even fell off my chair because of the suspense! Oh, man! The drama! The drama! It hurts the brain but at the same time... IT'S JUST TOO GOOD!!!
Takaya-sensei!!! YOU ARE MAKING ME GO INSANE WITH WHAT YOU ARE DOING WITH THIS SERIES!!! IT'S TOO AWESOME!!! XD Whoa! The things that happen here. I'm at a lost for words. It was as if she decided to make this the big "HOT DAMN!" volume. Not only do we get to see more of some characters that we don't know much about yet but we also find out some secrets and we get little hints of what might happen in the future. I love Takaya-sensei's ability to be able to hint you along with what's going to happen. I feel that it tries to slowly put you into the position of the characters so that way... YOU'D BE EQUALLY UPSET AS THEY ARE!!! BAH! Why is some of this stuff happening? I don't get it! Well, I do but you know what I mean! And I must say, I love that she's also adding info about the lesser known characters (I said this in my last review, too, but I just can't help it). I now know Kazuma is a clutz! I guess that explains why he sucks at cooking! XD
TOHRU!!! *Blubbers* The poor girl. She went through so much in this volume. Only because her association with the Sohmas. If only someone would beat the crap out of Akito so that he would leave them all alone. But nooooo... Stupid bastard. Anyway, I really hope she finds a way to free the Sohmas. I want that just as much as she does. Yuki is really showing improvement. I'm shocked! He seems to be handling that freak well! I'm actually kinda proud of him! I hope he continues to get more awesome. (He's not as arrogant anymore. Keyword: as) Wah! Kyo! Oh my poor baby Kyo! Come here and let me cuddle with you because, damn it, you deserve it! Dude, I'm so happy he... said... something awesome! XD It made me squee with delight! And... he really is tragic... I want him to be happy! *Flails* I wish I could be more specific but I can't give spoilers! >_< Just know that... AKITO IS THE BIGGEST PRICK ALIVE!!! THIS IS NOT A JOKE! IT IS THE TRUTH! I HATE HIM! UGH! WASHING YOUR HANDS? REALLY? REALLY? YOU HAD TO GO THERE!? YOU JUST HAD TO GO THERE! IF ANYONE IS DISGUSTING, IT'S YOU, AKITO!!!
*Ahem* As you can see... I am not a fan of Akito. He's the main reason why I was pulling my hair out whilst reading this. Granted, if it wasn't for him, the series wouldn't be as entertaining... but that doesn't make me like him more than roaches. I still think he needs to be shot multiple times and thrown into the ocean but I digress. Let me change the subject into something more epic... WE GOT TO SEE RIN CLEARLY NOW! ISN'T SHE GORGEOUS? I love her! She's so pretty! Her sense of style is epic and as a Zodiac member (like you didn't know), wow! Elegant! I really can't wait until she's the main focus of what's going on. I think it's in another two volumes from now but whatever. I'm just happy we are getting to see her. A lot of the other characters were here, too. (Haru and Hatori included!!!) It made me glad to see them all hanging around together having fun. I will say this, though... they were all unhappy. I hated seeing that. They have so much pain... so much suffering... you really start wondering how in the hell are they going to find their happiness? Honestly, it's looking a bit hopeless but... Tohru made it her mission to break evil curse of the stupid so... there's some hope, right!?
Need I say how awesome this series is? Can you not see how fangirly I am over it? I'm so sucked into these characters that I just can't help but want more! More! I want to know what's going to happen next! The way this book ended... it leaves you wanting to yell and scream and tear down buildings! I know I'm still in the "WTF!?" mode. It's a good thing I get to continue this manga right after I finish this review. Otherwise... I think I'd go to the Corner of Woe with my Spork and just have a go at it. But that's not the case so HAHA! Alright. Enough of my sillyness. I need to get going and read the next volume already because Ima bout to 'splode from not knowing! I know you want to know too~ *Smirks* See you soon? Naturally! GO READ!!!
"I want to be near you, until the time comes when I must go away. I want to be with you until the end."
🐑 This volume is Hiro! 🐑
And what an annoying little punk he is!
Ok... so this was abso-freaking-lutely fantastic! I cannot believe how emotionally charging this volume was. I had to put this book down several times because I was shaking and couldn't take how worked up I was. And in a good way, trust me.
This volume we continue to follow Tohru and the Sohma's on their summer vacation, however the ever looming effect of Akito continues to place an unforgiving shadow over the gang. It is in this volume that was finally get to see Akito interact with Kyo, was he decides to abruptly request to speak with him. The harsh reminder of his unavoidable confinement after graduation pushes a realisation out of Kyo that trust me, will make you cry. And if not cry, at least scream from happiness. There is no less of an emotion to come from this, trust me. It is really after this interaction with Akito that we begin to see Kyo mellow out and come to terms with his future, because before he lives locked in the same room for the remainder of his life, he is able to spend time with someone he cherishes and makes him happy, which is more than he ever imagined. I cannot contain it! I love it too much!
This volume is filled with love and support. We see how huge of an impact being a kind person can have on other people. We see that Tohru has helped both Yuki and Kyo change. Yuki is becoming more self aware of his insecurities, and is learning to push above them and find his own place in the world. We see Kyo filled with so much hatred and sadness, learn that he too has beautiful traits that can be liked by other people. And it is really in this volume that we begin to see that this kindness of Tohru's may be doing more than just curing the broken personalities of these two. Re-reading this series was one of the best ideas I have had. It helps remind me that there is good out there, and that rising above my personal battles will be rewarded.
🐒 Next volume is Ri-chan! 🐒
my precious children T_T
I love them all...especially Kyo!!
Oh man this was stressful. So much abuse, so much sweet, so much awful. This was scary. At some point this stopped being cute and became scary. I don't know if I can take another, what, 10 books of this? I'm so afraid for them all.
Spoilers ahead. You have been warned.
Oh my god. The librarian was right! She likes manga too, and she said this series was really good, but didn't get SUPER good until volume 11. And she was so right!!!!
XD XD XD XD XD XD XD!!!!!!!!
this volume was AMAZING! Really giving some amazing character development to both kyo and Tohru. I love them both. :D at first glance, she really isn't much of a strong female lead. Which are so important for young readers. But as the series progresses and especially here in volume 11 we get to see a special kinda a strength she has. She's ditzy, yeah, which is part of what makes her so adorable/annoying. But she's also so loving and positive and sacrificing. How she's so willing to throw herself into everything to protect other and help them stay happy. And to try and protect those she's cares about.
XD sweetest gal ever.
& kyo! My poor sweet lonely angry kyo! He's come such a long way from the beginning of the series. Learning to not blame himself so much and get along with others and trying to calm his anger. Thinking he might be able to love someone and be worth loving.
And HOW DARE YOU COME ALONG AND TRY TO TAKE IT ALL AWAY FROM HIM!?!?!?
Oh my god. Akito. I hate you so fucking much, I can't stand it. Major creepy rape vibes from this guy. And he wants to lock my dear Kyo away forever?!?! Never let him leave? Never let anyone in the family leave his "party"?
No. Fuck you. I hate you. Go die in a hole. You are the worst kind of person.
This book made me happy and sad and angry. I want to throw something. I want to jump in the book and save them all. And hug them so I can snuggle with cute fuzzy critters. ;)
any book that gets such a strong emotional reaction from its readers definitely deserves 5 stars.
You know, unless it made them angry because the writing sucked or the characters are cardboard cutouts.
None of which happened in "fruits basket". The characters and plot are amazing. The art isn't anything to complain about, but it's definitely not the greatest. But stories and characters totally make up for it 200%.
:D this is my favorite shojo manga now. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes manga. Particularly shojo manga. (The kind aimed at girls.) also, if you like urban fantasy, comedy, and romance, I'd definitely recommend "fruits basket" to you. :)
This, at this point of my rereading this series, is the best volume - and I adore all of it.
*sob* I just love these people so much.
