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!

I'm really excited about a graphic novel/manga group! I only have 1 unread graphic novel in my house and it's too big to ship, so I hope it's okay to offer up a manga selection. These are all first volumes. If none of these work, I can always run over to my local used bookstore and see what else they have. #LMPBC #Round6 #GroupU
I'll tag the other two in the comments.

LibrarianRyan Fruits basket is a classic, and part of what really started Manga here in the US. There were some really key series that brought Manga from back gaming rooms to store fronts and libraries. Vol 1 can be hard to find, so I vote for this. I've read some, but they were all way down the series line like volume 18 or so. 6mo

TheBookHippie It‘s fine by me!! 6mo
Shakespearience I would prefer Inubaka! I have read Fruits Basket a number of times and while I love it, I am not sure I would have much to add in terms of discussion. 6mo
DGRachel I had no idea that Vol 1 Fruits Basket is hard to find! I am super happy, then, that I got my hands on it. How about this, since I'd prefer no one had to reread unless they wanted to - Inubaka is short - why don't I send both and then you can chose to read either on or both depending on your schedule. Would that work? @LibrarianRyan @Shakespearience @TheBookHippie 6mo
Shakespearience @DGRachel that works for me. Most manga is pretty quick to read anyway. 6mo
LibrarianRyan @DGRachel I can read the Inubaka. To be honest I don't know if Fruits basket is still hard to find (I haven't looked) but when I was still a public librarian it was. So choose what ever is best for the group. I can do anything. 😁 6mo
TheBookHippie @DGRachel works good for me!!! 6mo
bullbunny @LibrarianRyan I don't think it is with the Collectors Edition have 2 manga's in one 6mo
bullbunny Fruitd Basket is my favorite so happy they rebooted the anime too ^^ 6mo
DGRachel @bullbunny I saw something about the anime, which is why I really want to get this off my TBR and onto my Read pile! 6mo
bullbunny @DGRachel they're doing the whole manga series. So you have time to read and then watch ^^ 6mo
Serotonin Inubaka and Her Majesty‘s Dog...I haven‘t seen those titles in a while. Good picks! 👍 6mo

Day 24 #sisforseptember is from a favorite manga series, Fruits Basket, which has a bunch of kids from high #school, several of which have a curse that has them turning into the animals of the Chinese zodiac if they're hugged by the opposite sex. And of course, there's a cute little girl that the male zodiac animals all have a crush on. It's cute and a lot of fun.

jmofo I would totally hug a dude-type if I got to be a sheep or goat. (edited) 1y
madamereadsalot1 @jmofo lol! 😂 I think I'd wanna be the tiger or monkey. 1y

This is my all time favorite series, and i am so thankful to have it again. When they re-released it as collectors editions.
Tohru Honda is living in a tent, in the woods, after loosing her mother. But that doesn't let that bother her, or feel the need to trouble her friends, with her troubles.
But when she comes across the most popular boy in school Yuki Sohma! Outside her tent. Is it for the best?
Collection is complete

🐭 Artwork is beautiful!
🐭 Story‘s unique from most things I‘ve read within shōjo.
🐭 Each character is multi-layered & it helps to build a fully fleshed out story.
🐭 Romance doesn‘t monopolise the foundation of the narrative, which is fantastic.
🐭Tohru Honda is a very likeable character; her empathy & compassion is lovely.
🐭The humour is glorious & quite laugh-out-loud
🐭I enjoyed taking my time & savouring every page of every chapter.
🐭5/5

While I have fond memories of Fruits Basket, re-reading over a decade later I find it frustrating and boring.

It adheres to all the Shojo tropes and offers very little of interest. The humour is either lost in translation or just not very good. I'm really not it's target audience. Not anymore.

Unless you love shojo, I'd give this one a skip.

Went to Barnes and Noble and found they reprinted the first manga I became obsessed with. So of course I had to get it. It's a straight up classic.

When I was younger, I found a few copies of Fruits Basket in the public library but I never actually owned them myself. I read a few of the manga and absolutely loved them. As you can imagine, I was very heartbroken when they were removed from the library with no intention to get them back again. I was so excited when they bought out a collector‘s edition!

Fruits Basket was a little slower to start than I had anticipated, but you can sense early on that it will be a series that ends up being much more than what it seems. It shines in those cut scene moments where the characters are thinking deeply about the changes they want to make in their lives

"At the time, boys teased me a lot for some reason. It was one of those times. The "fun game" played out right in front of me. I waited and waited. That's right... ever since I was little I've never given things enough thought. After all, a rice ball could never be part of a Fruits Basket."

Rereading a series that's so near and dear to my heart is such a joy. This manga series is incredibly sweet and funny. Highly recommend! Plus these new editions are beautiful.

About a third of the way through this for #24in48. The translation is completely different from what was originally published in the US (and I'm loving it). Sadly though none of the authors silly notes from the volumes are included (but that's okay).
