Format: Paperback
Tohru Honda's adventures really get going in the second volume of "Fruits Basket," where the upbeat teen moves into the Sohma household. Natsuki Takaya's storytelling is stronger and steadier in these chapters, since she's introduced the main characters and can now get going on the plot.

Tohru is moving into her newly furnished room, and her pals (wave-reading goth Saki and toughgrrl Hana) decide to stay over to make sure that the guys will take care of their cheerful friend. And when New Year's rolls around, Kyo and Yuki find themselves wondering what to do -- go to the main house with the other family, or stay with Tohru?

And at the school, the students are planning a cultural festival, and Tohru encounters two other Sohmas -- the chilly doctor Hatori, and the effusive half-German Momiji, who is instantly pals with Tohru. But Tohru learns of a different side to the zodiac members' lives, when she hears about Hatori's tragic past.

The first volume of "Fruits Basket" was all about introducing the characters and getting them into the same house. And in the second volume, Takaya gets to flesh out the cast with new characters and new storylines, and hints about the more sinister aspects of the Sohma family's curse, and the family head Akito.

The storylines in general are darker here, especially the harrowing flashbacks of Hatori's love affair with his ex-fiancee, and the bitterly chilly way that it fell apart. But Takaya also sprinkles it with happier moments, such as the naughty novels, the preparations for the cultural festival ("She brought an IRON PIPE to school!"), and poor Yuki having to wear a dress, much to the delight of his crazed fangirls.

There are also some new dimensions shown in Tohru here.

Format: Hardcover
"Fruits Basket" is one of those manga that is just too adorable for words, though the plot sounds kind of lame -- the adventures of the ever-optimistic Tohru Honda, and her dealings with the cursed Sohma family.

And the second "Fruits Basket Ultimate Edition" -- which brings together the third and fourth volumes of the manga -- expands the zodiac Sohmas even further. And while the plot is still riddled with deliciously wild comedy and hints of romance, Natsuki Takaya starts weaving some darker threads into the story.

While on an endurance run, Tohru sees a white-haired man lying by the roadside, and rushes to help -- only to find that he's Hatsuharu Sohma, a punky teenager who's come to challenge Kyo. But then Yuki collapses from an asthma attack -- and Haru's cursed form is the only one that can get him home discreetly.

Things get even more awkward when Valentine's Day rolls around: Kyo finds himself being violently wooed by Kagura, and dragged on a double-date while Shigure pays a visit to Hatori. A month later, Momiji unveils a surprise for Tohru -- a trip to a hot spring resort, run by a very easily upset "concubine." It gives our heroes a chance to relax and recuperate.

But not for long -- as Momiji and Haru join Tohru's high school, she accidentally bumps into Akito, the head of the family, who proceeds to quietly threaten Yuki. And later on, Tohru ends up having a snake slither up her shirt -- only to find that it's Yuki's estranged older brother, the flamboyant, charmingly arrogant Ayame. He is now desperately trying to mend the rift -- and Tohru wants to help, of course.

When the anniversary of Tohru's mother's death rolls around, the Sohmas become involved in the lighthearted ritual at her graveside.

I loved this book, it's a great follow from the first one! In this vol. Hana and Uo (Tohru's best friends) come to the Sohma House for a sleepover! Tohru has to be very careful not to give a hint of the Sohma Family Secret (when they're hugged by a member of the opposite gender, they turn into the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac, oh and the Cat!)This is also an intro. book to two new members of the Zodiac: the HANDSOME, SILENT, and STERN Hatori, and the LOVABLE CUTIE-BOY Momiji! A great read and totally recommended!!!!!!!!!!!
