*Published June 28, 2016*
I’ve read all of Fruits Basket before, but that was several years back before I even really started to use Goodreads to keep track of the books that I was reading at the time. But, when I saw these beautiful editions checked out by my coworker (I love my coworkers, we get all the recommendations from each other) I had to check them out and reread this wonderfully fluffy series again.
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 embraced by the opposite sex, they turn into the animals of the Chinese Zodiac!
I have no idea why this manga is so adorable, but it is! So much cute fluffiness and love and friendship! I love it! I love that Tohru Honda is a girl with friends that love her and watch out for her. Like most people, Tohru doesn’t want to be a burden to those that love her, but she makes new friends help her out. If you’ve watched K-dramas, it kind of feels like that and I love it!
