After a family tragedy turns her life upside down, plucky high schooler Tohru Honda takes matters into her own hands and moves out...into a tent! Unfortunately for her, she pitches her new home on private land belonging to the mysterious Sohma clan, and it isn't long before the owners discover her secret. But, as Tohru quickly finds out when the family offers to take her in, the Sohmas have a secret of their own--when touched by the opposite sex, they turn into the animals of the Chinese Zodiac!

A perennial favorite of fans and librarians alike, Natsuki Takaya's beloved bestselling Fruits Basket series returns to print in gorgeous deluxe English-language omnibus editions with beautiful full-color illustrations that are not to be missed!

OH LAWD!!! I AM OVERWHELMED WITH JOY!!

by -

As soon as they were announced for the west, I pre-ordered the first two.
They both came in the mail today and I AM SO PLEASED!!! Each volume has a different character on the front and back covers, with both of them together on the spine (the art is gorgeous). The covers have a wonderful matte finish, as well. Inside each of them, there are four pages (front and back) that have full-color character art from previous volumes/chapters/etc. and even a table of contents. I was happy to see that they carried over some of the side notes from the mangaka and at the very end of the book. Also included are translation notes and explanations of honorifics and many other terms that a reader outside of Japan may or may not understand.

Overall, I am extremely pleased with these editions and I will order every single one of them! THESE ARE THE EDITIONS THAT ANY FRUITS BASKET FAN HAS BEEN WAITING FOR!!

Some things you should know

by -

Fruits Basket is back in a brand new omnibus format! The front covers feature new artwork; gone is the massive amount of teal from the original printings. Vol. 1 features a white cover with Tohru and Kyoko, her mother. The first 4 pages have full color illustrations, including the character art that was on the original books. The book is also larger than a standard manga book, so you can really appreciate the artwork. Also, I think that the books have a new translation for the series which is closer to the original Japanese. There is a new message from the author in the back of the book, where she explains that her original commentaries have been removed, since they are outdated to her current opinions. These spaces are now filled by art fillers on the side of the page. If I had one negative thing to say about this new version, it's the cover. The new artwork is beautiful to be sure, but the cover is made from thick paper. So make sure your table is dry if you go to set them down.

Fruits Basket is back and in print!

by -

I was looking all over over the place for the first volume. When I stumbled across it on here I was so happy, and what was even better it also contains volume 2 as well. It is worth the money and I guarantee you will love it from beginning to end!!!

The Banquet Returns in Top Form.

by -

The return of one of the best manga to come out of the late 90's.

Fruit's Basket is one my personal favorites with its style of combining gut busting laughs, interesting characters with detailed backstories, and one of the best gut punches to appear in a drama work. The covers are well drawn though I do miss the circle of Zodiac animals that appeared on the first few volumes.

With this new edition of 2-in-1 it will save much time when it comes to getting through the story and is in a nice reading on the go package.

Totally worth it.

by

I came into this series late so I was super excited when this collectors editions was released. It exceeded my expectations. The color pages and author notes are extras that make this edition special. The only negative is the matte cover get dirty easily. Overall, this is a must have for any shojo fan.

Furuba is BACK

by

It's great just to have Furuba back in print (and at the slightly more manageable volume count of 12). The art has never looked better (and of course the story's great), but the new translation is a little stilted at times and occasionally downright baffling (it's not chives, it's LEEKS). There are some good elements to the translation, too, but I just hope those errors were fixed for the following volumes

Worth every penny!

by

The new print for fruits basket is gorgeous! The collectors edition is definitely worth it, the matte finish and the character artwork on the front and back covers are nicely done! And of course the fruits basket story we all love.

5 STARS LOVE THIS SERIES

by -

The start of this series is perfect, without having spoilers, with the main characters being introduced and their story starting to be told together. As the series goes more of the zodiac are introduced. Usually I don't feel choked up but toward the end of the series their emotions and what they went through hit me haha
But highly recommend!

Going through withdrawal now that the anime has ended?

by -

The Yen Press edition of FB is a great option for those too broke to hunt down the OOP and pricey Tokyopop run, but it's also a decent buy for older fans who are curious about this latest release (especially if you catch it during one of Rightstuf's sales).

Gone are the original author sidebars and character bios.

Instead, we get:

- Several pages of glossy color photos
- Pages that are roughly 1 inch/2.5 cm bigger in HxW (very useful, given that a lot of the panels have extra tiny text mixed in with the dialogue/narration)
- A new author's note at the end of each volume
- Updated translations... which, admittedly, are hit or miss. YP's "Yucky Yuki" (versus Tokyopop's "Damn rat") is absolute cringe. But there are other moments that seem to better capture the nuance of the characters or situations.

Given that it's a collector's edition, I only wish we got a hardcover and glossy pages (like those used in SM Eternal Edition, FMA Fullmetal Edition, Soul Eater Perfect Edition, etc).

Amazing series!! Would highly recommend!!

by -

The anime for Fruits Basket ended a few weeks ago, and I was so sad it ended that I decided to finally start collecting the Fruits Basket series! I finally bought volume 1 a few weeks ago, and I absolutely loved it! Definitely would give this series a 10/10 so far. Can't wait to buy volume 2!
