Fruits Basket, Vol. 1 (Fruits Basket #1) Reviews

  • The Crimson Fucker
    Jan 10, 2011

    I just have one thing to say; ...

    Fruits Basket is probably my very favorite manga that I have read to date. Now, I wholeheartedly admit that the premise is weird and unlikely, but, hey, it's fantasy. Anyway, if you can get past the initial outlandishness, you discover a story full of heart and darkness. This is my fou...

    This really was an adorable book! I hadn't read manga before this one, and I only picked this up based on some of my friends' reviews with no expectations. But it really didn't disappoint! I fell in love with the characters and the story from the beginning. -There's Tohru, who is v...

    Has anyone else noticed how the characters grew up over the path of the series? Namely Kyo, Yuki, and Momiji. They look almost completely different by the end of the series compared to how they did in the beginning. Especially Kyo (who looks alarmingly like Tohru's dad). I mean look at...

    2nd book read for BTAT2017 "read a book entirely outdoors"! This manga has an enjoyable enough storyline and characters, but the art style really doesn't work for me. I might read a couple more volumes to give it a chance, but I may just watch the anime instead. ...

    1.5 Stars This was a boring, hot mess. I never read this as a kid and I definitely haven't watched the anime, but I heard that this was really good from a lot of people. I'm so let down. None of the characters were named or fleshed out, the plot is nonexistent, there's absolutely...

    I LOVE this series. It's really cute! This was one of the first manga series I've read. I own a few of them. As always, I won't add all of the books to my self. Way too many. ...

    Initial thoughts: 1. I felt so nostalgic reading this manga again! 2. Toru is such an adorable, although naive, character. Love her! 3. Shigure and also Hanajima and Uotani are hilarious! 4. The fights between Yuki and Kyo seem to never end. 5. Amazing artwork! Check out my f...

    [This review only covers volumes 1-12] It was last year when I realized that I am so done with shoujo manga stories (especially in a school setting). It wasn't as if it was a constant presence in my life growing up or anything, but after a while I realized that its formulaic s...

    Total impulse read! 4.5 I really just felt like continuing this story! I watched the anime about 5 years ago now, and the ending is still bothering me, and I just need to know what is going to happen next! Cute, funny, typical rom com anime/manga. However, I hear it gets darker...

    ? This volume is Tohru! ? Living in a tent after the passing of her mother, Tohru Honda soldiers through her adversities with a smile on her face. After a classmate of hers, Yuki Sohma, discovers that Tohru is living in a tent, he offers to let her lodge at his house with his ...

    Rereading this old favorite. I love it so much! ...

    ALRIGHT! I am redoing this review! I wrote a review for this long, long ago, but I really want to redo it, mostly because . . . . . . . I'm trying to read the whole series again. It's just that I watched the whole series of the ANIME, and 1. They don't show all of the characters. ...

    POR QU NADIE ME HABL DE ESTE MANGA? ...

    I know I am writing this as the minority point of view, but I hated Fruits Basket. At first, I found it mildly dull, but as the story failed to progress interestingly, I found myself grinding my teethe waiting for the plot to pick up. It's about a cloyingly sweet, kind, selfless, gentl...

    5/5 Stars. This was a reread for me and it was just as good as the first time I read it! I love this story so much, it melts my heart. A great introduction to manga in my opinion. ...

    Spoilers This is the second manga I've read, the first being Deathnote. I didn't enjoy this quite as much as Deathnote but it was still pretty brilliant. I found the premise a little odd but not in a bad way. The heroine, Tohru, lives in a tent (her mum died and her granddad sort o...

    I know it's an exaggeration to say that something has changed my life, particularly if it?s a story from a book or TV series or movie. Or at least, it has changed me; in shaping my deeply-held beliefs. 'Fruits Basket' was like that for me, however. When I started reading manga and...

    I started reading manga a couple of years back and this series was on my radar since then. I decided to pick this up on a whim, on a slow day, when I couldn?t decide what to read. On the same day, I picked up 3 books from different genres to figure out the kind of book I was craving....

    ?Just be yourself and you'll be fine? Such a refreshing adorable book! As i said before this is my first manga read experience and it was So much Fun, and I only picked this up because i don't have so time to read (am working on my magister thesis) so I've been looking for s...

    **Review for the entire series** This is the first manga series I ever read. I spotted the first book randomly in a small bookshop on Balboa Island, a charming little place that I can never get enough of. Something about the book drew me to it, but I can't exactly say what. Look...

    The F Twins gave this one 5 stars! My little sister gave it 5 stars too! Noran dropped another 5 star on it also! Why I don?t like it then!!!? WHY!!!!? This don?t make sense!!! It even has cats! Well one cat! And some of the characters remind me of goodreaders! like Tohru ...

    I don't care who you are, male or female, whatever age, into manga or not, this series is WELL worth the read. My favorite manga of all time, untouchable, I cannot even begin to explain the magic of these books. The characters are the most lovable and relatable I have ever EVER come ac...

    I bought this as a gift for a friend's son, he's into manga. I think manga's not for me. It took more than a few pages to get into the "from right to left" bit, because you also have to deal with the "upper/lower", and I'm not sure this one works consistently in that sense. The trans...

    To stave off my new manga interest until I can get my hands on more Dragon Ball or something else I like I borrowed this boxset off my housemate. Fruits Basket is sh?jo (female orientated) rather than what I prefer, sh?nen. I haven't minded some sh?jo such as Azumanga Daioh and Oura...

    Total impulse read! 4.5 I really just felt like continuing this story! I watched the anime about 5 years ago now, and the ending is still bothering me, and I just need to know what is going to happen next! Cute, funny, typical rom com anime/manga. However, I hear it gets darker...

    I know I am writing this as the minority point of view, but I hated Fruits Basket. At first, I found it mildly dull, but as the story failed to progress interestingly, I found myself grinding my teethe waiting for the plot to pick up. It's about a cloyingly sweet, kind, selfless, gentl...

    Fruits Basket is probably my very favorite manga that I have read to date. Now, I wholeheartedly admit that the premise is weird and unlikely, but, hey, it's fantasy. Anyway, if you can get past the initial outlandishness, you discover a story full of heart and darkness. This is my fou...

    This really was an adorable book! I hadn't read manga before this one, and I only picked this up based on some of my friends' reviews with no expectations. But it really didn't disappoint! I fell in love with the characters and the story from the beginning. -There's Tohru, who is v...

    Has anyone else noticed how the characters grew up over the path of the series? Namely Kyo, Yuki, and Momiji. They look almost completely different by the end of the series compared to how they did in the beginning. Especially Kyo (who looks alarmingly like Tohru's dad). I mean look at...

    1.5 Stars This was a boring, hot mess. I never read this as a kid and I definitely haven't watched the anime, but I heard that this was really good from a lot of people. I'm so let down. None of the characters were named or fleshed out, the plot is nonexistent, there's absolutely...

    I know I am writing this as the minority point of view, but I hated Fruits Basket. At first, I found it mildly dull, but as the story failed to progress interestingly, I found myself grinding my teethe waiting for the plot to pick up. It's about a cloyingly sweet, kind, selfless, gentl...

    5/5 Stars. This was a reread for me and it was just as good as the first time I read it! I love this story so much, it melts my heart. A great introduction to manga in my opinion. ...

    Spoilers This is the second manga I've read, the first being Deathnote. I didn't enjoy this quite as much as Deathnote but it was still pretty brilliant. I found the premise a little odd but not in a bad way. The heroine, Tohru, lives in a tent (her mum died and her granddad sort o...

    I know it's an exaggeration to say that something has changed my life, particularly if it?s a story from a book or TV series or movie. Or at least, it has changed me; in shaping my deeply-held beliefs. 'Fruits Basket' was like that for me, however. When I started reading manga and...

    I started reading manga a couple of years back and this series was on my radar since then. I decided to pick this up on a whim, on a slow day, when I couldn?t decide what to read. On the same day, I picked up 3 books from different genres to figure out the kind of book I was craving....

    ?Just be yourself and you'll be fine? Such a refreshing adorable book! As i said before this is my first manga read experience and it was So much Fun, and I only picked this up because i don't have so time to read (am working on my magister thesis) so I've been looking for s...

    **Review for the entire series** This is the first manga series I ever read. I spotted the first book randomly in a small bookshop on Balboa Island, a charming little place that I can never get enough of. Something about the book drew me to it, but I can't exactly say what. Look...

    The F Twins gave this one 5 stars! My little sister gave it 5 stars too! Noran dropped another 5 star on it also! Why I don?t like it then!!!? WHY!!!!? This don?t make sense!!! It even has cats! Well one cat! And some of the characters remind me of goodreaders! like Tohru ...

    One of my friends introduced me to the world of manga, and this story in particular. (And I'm so thankful that I cannot express it in words, only sounds that would more than likely scare people.) If you're even wondering about this, I suggest you let your mind wonder and wander unti...

    Update: Here's my full review! http://www.bookishrealmreviews.com/20... This was so freaking cute! I absolutely loved how the Chinese Zodiac has been incorporated into the main storyline. It was a light read and easy to get through. I think what was most interesting was the manner i...

    The best shoujo manga ever! Saya punya anime nya di laptop komplit dua puluh enam episode. Suka sekali dengan theme song pembuka dan penutupnya. Honda tohru, seorang yatim piatu yang terpaksa harus mandiri setelah ditinggal ibunya wafat dan kediaman kakeknya direnovasi sehingga tohru...

    I don't care who you are, male or female, whatever age, into manga or not, this series is WELL worth the read. My favorite manga of all time, untouchable, I cannot even begin to explain the magic of these books. The characters are the most lovable and relatable I have ever EVER come ac...

    Fruits Basket is probably my very favorite manga that I have read to date. Now, I wholeheartedly admit that the premise is weird and unlikely, but, hey, it's fantasy. Anyway, if you can get past the initial outlandishness, you discover a story full of heart and darkness. This is my fou...

    This really was an adorable book! I hadn't read manga before this one, and I only picked this up based on some of my friends' reviews with no expectations. But it really didn't disappoint! I fell in love with the characters and the story from the beginning. -There's Tohru, who is v...

    Has anyone else noticed how the characters grew up over the path of the series? Namely Kyo, Yuki, and Momiji. They look almost completely different by the end of the series compared to how they did in the beginning. Especially Kyo (who looks alarmingly like Tohru's dad). I mean look at...

    2nd book read for BTAT2017 "read a book entirely outdoors"! This manga has an enjoyable enough storyline and characters, but the art style really doesn't work for me. I might read a couple more volumes to give it a chance, but I may just watch the anime instead. ...

    1.5 Stars This was a boring, hot mess. I never read this as a kid and I definitely haven't watched the anime, but I heard that this was really good from a lot of people. I'm so let down. None of the characters were named or fleshed out, the plot is nonexistent, there's absolutely...

    This really was an adorable book! I hadn't read manga before this one, and I only picked this up based on some of my friends' reviews with no expectations. But it really didn't disappoint! I fell in love with the characters and the story from the beginning. -There's Tohru, who is v...

    Has anyone else noticed how the characters grew up over the path of the series? Namely Kyo, Yuki, and Momiji. They look almost completely different by the end of the series compared to how they did in the beginning. Especially Kyo (who looks alarmingly like Tohru's dad). I mean look at...

    2nd book read for BTAT2017 "read a book entirely outdoors"! This manga has an enjoyable enough storyline and characters, but the art style really doesn't work for me. I might read a couple more volumes to give it a chance, but I may just watch the anime instead. ...

    1.5 Stars This was a boring, hot mess. I never read this as a kid and I definitely haven't watched the anime, but I heard that this was really good from a lot of people. I'm so let down. None of the characters were named or fleshed out, the plot is nonexistent, there's absolutely...

    I LOVE this series. It's really cute! This was one of the first manga series I've read. I own a few of them. As always, I won't add all of the books to my self. Way too many. ...

    Initial thoughts: 1. I felt so nostalgic reading this manga again! 2. Toru is such an adorable, although naive, character. Love her! 3. Shigure and also Hanajima and Uotani are hilarious! 4. The fights between Yuki and Kyo seem to never end. 5. Amazing artwork! Check out my f...

    [This review only covers volumes 1-12] It was last year when I realized that I am so done with shoujo manga stories (especially in a school setting). It wasn't as if it was a constant presence in my life growing up or anything, but after a while I realized that its formulaic s...

    Total impulse read! 4.5 I really just felt like continuing this story! I watched the anime about 5 years ago now, and the ending is still bothering me, and I just need to know what is going to happen next! Cute, funny, typical rom com anime/manga. However, I hear it gets darker...

    ALRIGHT! I am redoing this review! I wrote a review for this long, long ago, but I really want to redo it, mostly because . . . . . . . I'm trying to read the whole series again. It's just that I watched the whole series of the ANIME, and 1. They don't show all of the characters. ...

    I know I am writing this as the minority point of view, but I hated Fruits Basket. At first, I found it mildly dull, but as the story failed to progress interestingly, I found myself grinding my teethe waiting for the plot to pick up. It's about a cloyingly sweet, kind, selfless, gentl...

    5/5 Stars. This was a reread for me and it was just as good as the first time I read it! I love this story so much, it melts my heart. A great introduction to manga in my opinion. ...

    Spoilers This is the second manga I've read, the first being Deathnote. I didn't enjoy this quite as much as Deathnote but it was still pretty brilliant. I found the premise a little odd but not in a bad way. The heroine, Tohru, lives in a tent (her mum died and her granddad sort o...

    I know it's an exaggeration to say that something has changed my life, particularly if it?s a story from a book or TV series or movie. Or at least, it has changed me; in shaping my deeply-held beliefs. 'Fruits Basket' was like that for me, however. When I started reading manga and...

    I started reading manga a couple of years back and this series was on my radar since then. I decided to pick this up on a whim, on a slow day, when I couldn?t decide what to read. On the same day, I picked up 3 books from different genres to figure out the kind of book I was craving....

    ?Just be yourself and you'll be fine? Such a refreshing adorable book! As i said before this is my first manga read experience and it was So much Fun, and I only picked this up because i don't have so time to read (am working on my magister thesis) so I've been looking for s...

    **Review for the entire series** This is the first manga series I ever read. I spotted the first book randomly in a small bookshop on Balboa Island, a charming little place that I can never get enough of. Something about the book drew me to it, but I can't exactly say what. Look...

    One of my friends introduced me to the world of manga, and this story in particular. (And I'm so thankful that I cannot express it in words, only sounds that would more than likely scare people.) If you're even wondering about this, I suggest you let your mind wonder and wander unti...
