Vol 12 is a great continuation of the story! It gave me butterflies in my stomach and left me wanting more. More focus on the fiesty female that is Rin and lots of Haru action which we like! Of course there's the usual banter between the men of the house and Tohru's ditziness is still there (thank god). Beautifully drawn and a pace quickening storyline. xxx

This volume advances a lot of the plotlines previously introduced: Tohru tries to find out how to break the curse, much to Rin's chagrin; Haru confronts Rin about her behaviour (the [...] tension between these two is HOT); Yuki gets to know the other student council members a little better (the most boring part of the storyline for me); and Kyô finally talks to Kagura, so you find out how their relationship started. There are quite a lot of dark moments, but Ayame, the ill-matched student council members, Uo-chan and Hana-chan help keep things light (Hana's crush on Kyô's father is extremely amusing).

While the main story is often shadowed by character delevopment and lessons in life, Fruits Basket still has the same appeal as it did from the first issue.
Most of this volume focuses on newcomer member of the Zodiac, Rin the Horse. There are also some back stories on Toryu and Shigure. The ususal humour is there too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Transitions 13 Dec. 2005
By Kellyannl - Published on
Format: Paperback
After the dramatic events of the last volume, the pace slows down as the highschoolers prepare for parent teacher conferences.

As this volume begins, Yuki's term as Student Council President begins while Tohru - having now seen firsthand what Akito is capable of and determined to free her friends from the Zodiac curse - secretly turns to Kyo's Shishou for advice. But the real meat of the volume involves Yuki and Kyo, who each find out secrets about someone close to them.

Although he has never loved Kagura, she is still important to Kyo, having been his only real childhood friend. In this volume they finally hash out their relationship in a surprisingly serious and emotionally draining conversation in which Kagura reveals with startling bluntness the reason why she's forced herself on Kyo for so long.

Yuki, meanwhile, visits Rin in an attempt to play matchmaker and repay Haru for always having his back. Their conversation takes a wild turn, however, when Rin changes the subject - and Yuki learns the truth about a critical moment in his life when she reveals that it was Haru - and not Shigure as he'd always been lead to believe - who saved him from his miserable existence in Sohma House.

Another fine volume with some great character development.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMESOME! 8 Jan. 2006
By Sandra - Published on
Format: Paperback
That book is so amesome!! I can't put it down. When I bought it, I started read it about an hour. Believe it or not?

Let me tell you...I don't mean to spoil the story... Yuki, Kyo, Shigure and Tohru went back to the house from vacation. (Oh man, Kyo and Yuki gotta TALLER! Whoa!) Kyo wanted to be with Tohru until the end of his life. Tohru made a call to Kazuma which Kyo's father..err foster father!? She wanted to talk with him about how to break the curse. Tohru thought she was really selfish, but she really wanted to break a curse. Kagura realized why she pushed herself to Kyo and it called force love. But she does love him. She told Kyo everything and Kyo didn't say 'I am sorry;, just say thank you. Kyo was only the one friend to Kagura. Kyo never "like" Kagura. Kagura remembered when she saw Kyo's true form, she just ran away. In volume 6, Kagura watched Tohru ran after Kyo when he was true form. That made Kagura realized how she was stupid because of running from Kyo. Anyway, Kyo was just now single and wanted to be with Tohru and love her a lot. Of course, Tohru didn't know...YeT!? Hmm at school, the parent-teacher conferences, Tohru's grandfather couldn't go there because he had thrown his back. (I think.) So instead of, Shigure would go to her grandfather's place for parent-teacher conferences. Shigure wanted to see how Tohru's teacher's face when she sees Shigure. Between them, it was so funny. Um in the end page, Saki liked Kazuma when she saw him walked with Kyo to parent-teacher conference. Kyo shouted that he don't want to her be his mom. Hahaha! ^^ I hope you don't mind that I told you too much...ehh...

If you don't read this Fruits basket, go read the volume one. If you don't read this volume, go buy it!!! IT IS SOO MUCH!!! YiKes!!! =D

5.0 out of 5 stars going down 22 Dec. 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
it's amazing that furuba has managed to stay so funny for so long, as I have read the entire series and I must say-- it's all down hill from here. I don't mean the quality of the manga goes down--the story line gets sadder and sadder, but some of it remains gutbustingly funny. In this volume, Tohru-kun, Kyo-kun, and Yuki-kun prepare to go back to school and for their parent teacher confrences. Tohru visits her grandpa in the hospital (he threw out his back)and he brings up painful part of her past. Tohru also pays a visit to Shisou-san (whom Hana-chan may have a crush on)and learns the more about the Sohma family's eternaly patronizing curse. kagura and kyo have a heart to heart about why kagura has forced herself on Kyo all these years, and Yuki starts his term as the new class president--could he have found a new love interest? it's true that the mystery surrounding the Sohmas is yet to be uncovered, but when Akito reveals a shocking secret in a later volume, a clue to their existence begins to unravel. Furuba is not--as I once suspected--'fluffy'-- it's hardcore, heartbreaking, and hilairious, and it succeeds on very level. One of the greatest manga series ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love fruits basket!!! 18 Feb. 2006
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
Well, let me just begin by saying that i am totally in love with fruits basket!!! (especially kyo...and kureno, i suppose)This is by far, my favorite book in the series. This volume is filled with drama, especially when yuki meets up with rin, and realizes something about her that he never knew. and what happens when haru shows up? Also, kagura takes kyo on a date, and has an emotional confession about the reason why she always loved him. It truly brought tears to my eyes. and of course, it's hilarious when shigure goes to tohru's parent-teacher conference in place of her grandfather. (her teacher is mayuko, shigure's ex-girlfriend) well, you're just going to have to find out the rest for yourself. GET THIS BOOK!!!!!!
