Fruits Basket was my first Manga I read and I decided to try it because of Hannah over at The Rainy Reader. The Fruits Basket story is super fun and cute. I read the first volume of the Collectors Edition and although it took me a bit to get used to the way you read a manga. Read right to left and you flip the pages from back to front. The story was what initially intrigued me to try reading it. The story is based around a young girl name Tohru Honda. Her mother has recently died and as a result she ends up living in a tent on the private land of the Sohma clan. The owners of the land discover her and Tohru quickly realizes the most popular guy in her school, Yuki Sohma, lives in a house on this land. The family decides to take Tohru in and she discovers their secret… Anytime a member of the Sohma clan is hugged by someone of the opposite gender they turn into the animals of the Chinese Zodiac. I love all the characters Tohru, Yuki, and Kyo are my favorites so far. Toward the end of this volume you start to meet other members of the clan, and I’m super excited for that! The characters are easy to relate to and I find myself so engrossed in the story that I’m often turning pages without enjoying the art work so I often must go back and check it out. The art work in this story is stunning, the way the emotions jump off the page is brilliant. My goal this year was to start reading different types of books and break out of my comfort zone a bit. Fruits Basket allowed me to do that! I hope you’ll give it a try.

I feel in love with the anime over ten years ago and hadn't read the manga until now. I'm loving it just as much, if not more. The story is different, but only in a way that it adds to what I've already experienced with the anime. I can't stop reading and can't wait for all the books to be out!

When I first watched the Anime Version, I thought the ending was the same in the manga! Then I realized how much the book was worth buying after I bought the first one. There was just so much more to it, that a true fan couldn't miss out on. :) I'm also glad that it was reprinted! The translations are all different from the TokyoPop Version. It also comes with color picture art pages from the art book of Fruits Basket! Definitely a antique manga collection.
