A slow start but it's still the sohmas

by -

If you like me you probably just saw Fruit Baskets and thought "I must get! " which isn't a bad thing just be prepared that volume one has a slow pacing. It gives you questions that are left unanswered. Such as how they are cursed and why they are fixated on the heroine (which I found annoying to be honest. She is the opposite of the always smiling and loveable Tohru).
However it was still an enjoyable read because we have a new set of Sohmas to love. I enjoyed seeing how they compared to the original set and guessing who there parents are.

Just re-read the original series

All this is really good for is looking at the characters and going "that's so-and-so's child(ren)!", which is something I think could have been much better accomplished through an artbook or something
The lead girl so bland that it's hard to want to even read about her or care.
If you liked the original series, just stick with it and ignore this

Fruits Basket All Over Again

by

A new installment for fans of Fruits Basket!
Although, it's not so new.
Introducing a new heroine who is whiny, pitiful, and nothing like our beloved Tohru. Sawa, looking a lot like Tohru, obviously has a scarred background with an absentee mother.
Sawa is pathetic and has dead-looking eyes. She meets the new Sohmas all in a flurry! The Sohmas love to beat around the bush and play "who's who?" They give hints to their identity and perhaps even who their parents are, but reveal nothing. It's frustrating - and not in a good way.
They also seem to have no sense of boundary with Sawa, dragging her into many situations. They're just annoying.

A quick read for manga lovers and perhaps a blast from the past for die-hard fans. Nothing special in this volume, just unanswered questions and frustration.

Oh No! Only so-so....

While not up to the standards of the original series, it wasn't bad. Many of the characters were quite one-dimensional, but I hope that is only a flaw of this first volume. It has some highlights, but is mainly slow, and it was sort of annoying at times in how no real information was given to the reader. When I first ordered it, I thought it was going to be a different viewpoint on the events of the original series, not a many-years-later-sequel, so that may have colored my review a little. If you haven't read the original series, you are likely to be completely lost, but if you have, you will probably be a little let down by this volume. I think I will probably read at least another volume or two, presuming the series makes it, but it isn't a series I'll be waiting on each volume with baited breath for, either.

The next generation shows how much has changed

This begins a short, 3-book series that focuses on the children of the original FB cast. If you haven't read the original, you aren't going to get much out of this. Go in open minded & knowing that there are tons of references. This story delves into trauma and abuse and choosing your path through life, and a lot of that happens because of how the original cast has raised their children differently. It's also cute that the kids retain their Zodiac similarities - like Hajime sleeping all the time. I'd recommend reading all 3 together for a better story, and a refresher on the original series wouldn't hurt. ;)
