This time we get to meet two new members of the Zodiac, the cute and sweet Momiji, and the cold and mysterious Hatori. In this volume we get to see Tohru's adorable comparison between onigiri and self love, a similie that is as adorable as it is true. "Perhaps a person's strengths are like the pickled plum in the rice balls! The pickled plum is always stuck behind the rice ball, so the rice ball can't see it. And in this world, everyone has got a pickled plum, of different shapes and sizes, colours and tastes stuck on their backs. But because it's stuck on their backs, they may not be able to see the lovely pickled plum that's attached to them, so they'd think to themselves 'I'm nothing but plain ole rice'. But that's not true. They've got their pickled plum safely stuck on their backs. And the reason why we are often envious of others is because we can see the pickled plum that's on their backs."That is something I always try to remember, that we all have a pickled plum on our backs, even if we can't see it ourselves! This volume was very much about seeing that there is something special and wonderful within each person, and that appearances and attitude should not decieve us from what really is inside. I cannot wait to continue on with my re-read!🐱 Next volume is Kyo! 🐱

    I love Fruits Basket! As I finsihed this book, it's pretty interesting about Hatori (has the spirit of the dragon). I would add this kind of quote to my profile from this volume 2:Hatori:"When snow melts, what do think it becomes?"Tohru: "Huh? Ah...Um, well...Hmm. It becomes spring! No matter how cold it is now, Spring will come again! Without fail. It's strange, isn't it? But it's true."ALSO:Hatori: Please let her... find someone who can make her happy. I pray.

I usually don't make sense when I do my reviews but hey, unless you want spoilers, then don't complain! Anyway, I really love this volume. The drama in this one was way more intense than it was with the first volume and it's only going to get more intense as the volumes go by!Takaya-sensei is such a cool mangaka. In this volume, I felt you got to know her a lot better because of the fact that she interacts directly with the reader through her messages that she puts at the beginning of each chapter. She really is a huge gamer and to see that she's a fan of Final Fantasy was just awesome to me. I'm a huge fan of the franchise myself and seeing that she spoke so highly of FFVII just made me tear up inside. That's not to say that I didn't enjoy the plot for this volume. I love that she went into the past of her characters and really worked hard on developing Tohru, Yuki, and Kyo as well as introducing Momiji and Hatori (and Haru but we don't learn much about him in this volume). Really, Takaya-sensei is just an amazing person.As I've said before, she managed to develop Tohru. Tohru in this one, although still very happy and gentle, you get to see a much more sadder side to her, too, because life is not always happy... it makes her seem more realistic and for that, I appreciated her all the more. The same thing could be said about Kyo and Yuki. You get to see their reasons for envying and wanting to be like one another. You understand why they fight each other so much. It's nice because it clears up that their fighting is not just some stupid rivarly that they have. It runs much more deeper than that. Plus, they get the approval of Hana and Uo and we all know they are the law! XD No, seriously, these two girls are just epic. They would do anything in order to protect Tohru. Anything. Hana's psychic abilities are so intriguing. I don't know how they work but damn, I wish I had them! XD (Shigure didn't do much in this volume but he does have some strange aura about him that... you just want to eat him in order to find out what that may be. XD Plus, I want to read his books... just because. XD)We just met Momiji and Hatori! One of the cutest and coolest characters ever to come into existence! Momiji is adorable. I cannot express this enough! He's so sweet, cuddly, cute, and lovable! He accepts Tohru right away and welcomes her without any hesitation whatsoever. Plus, he's half German! How awesome is that? I loves me my Germans~ *Squeezes Cloud* Anyway, we don't know much about him yet. We'll get to see more about him in later volumes. The one we do get to know quite well is Hatori. I love this man. He's so kind, gentle, caring, and... *Frowns* ...his past is one of true tragedy. It'll bring you to tears what he had to go through and how he had no choice but to do what he had to do. It's so painful... but... Tohru makes it better, I feel. And the way his personality is, he was able to come to terms with himself and that leaves at least a bit of hope. I love this man so much... I hope that one day... he'll be able to find spring again. *Smiles faintly*Yeah, like I said, one of my favorite volumes of the entire manga. I love the characters, the plot, the artwork. Everything. It's just so... I don't know how to say it... exquisite? Yeah, we'll go with that. X3 I really love how everything seems to flow so well. Takaya-sensei really knew how to balance this manga out very well. You have the comedy and the drama. The romance and the tragedy. The hopelessness and the hope. I love this manga. It's really worth the read. I believe you should pick this one up if you're a manga fan. Even more so if you're a shoujo fan! Trust me. The story and the characters are worth your time. *Nods*

I still found the premise kind of wacky but in a good way. Tohru (the clumsy homeless heroine) quite literally stumbled onto their secret. She now lives in the Sohma house with three of the Sohma boys — good guy Yuki (rat), moody Kyo (cat), and pervy Shigure (dog). Oh and Tohru stays with them rent free in exchange for cooking and cleaning. Yea, it was all rather sexist, but it kind of felt satirical - I'm not sure whether that was intentional or not though.-The plot was sort of all over the place - Tohru's friends have a sleepover at the Sohma house to make sure she's been treated right. Then Tohru/Kyo/Yuki and co sell rice at school, also Tohru meets more of the Sohma family, and then everyone celebrates new year. It was actually really entertaining.-I loved Tohru. I was worried that I would get sick of her Mary Sue optimism but thankfully, I didn't. Mind you, this is only volume 2… I've got another twenty or so to go… So no doubt, she'll annoy me soon enough.The best thing about Tohru was how funny she was — most of the time it was unintentional on her part. Things like Tohru falling down because she was walking and thinking at the same time, and her getting excited at the most silliest things, and making really naive + idiotic remarks… It all should have been annoying but for some reason it wasn't — it was just strangely charming.-I loved Tohru's female friends. Hana and Arisa/Uo were brilliant… They had good personalities that I felt rivaled Tohru's. I get overly happy when the heroine has strong female friendships, and I get even more happier when her friends aren't written poorly just so the heroine can seem amazing, deep and worthwhile in comparison. More heroines should have friends as amazing as Tohru's.-I'm intrigued by Hana's psychic powers, I'm hoping there'll be some focus on that in future volumes. I loved Uo/Arisa's attitude — she was supportive, witty and confident. It was cool that Hana and Uo were genuinely concerned about Tohru and her life at the Sohma's… I liked it when Uo and Hana made it clear to the Sohma boys that if any harm came to Tohru they would hurt them. Females sticking together, that's what I like to see.-Yuki was kind of irritating in how great he was at everything, he was a total Gary Stu. And his personality was too smooth and bland. He was okay but just not my cup of tea.-Kyo was sweet in that sullen, moody and angry way. I definitely ship Kyo with Tohru. -Momiji was lovely and cute. And Hatori was likeable enough — his break up with Kana was rather sad. -The artwork was great… But at times it was difficult to tell who was who. Also, Yuki looked like a girl in a lot of panels. -I'm finding it easier to follow the dialogue and speech bubbles - I struggled slightly in the first volume.I'll definitely be picking up volume 3 ASAP. I can't wait to read more of Tohru's silliness and Kyo's moodiness.

    Two new characters were added: Momiji and Hatori. The curse was developed a little bit further, but it's still a mystery overall. Can it be broken? I love seeing all the characters interact with one another. It's so cute and funny most of the time like when Hana gets both Kyo and Yuki to go back to the house to spend New Years with Tohru, that was super sweet.

We also learn a little more about the Sohma clan and how they live in their estate. Hatori also relives some painful memories, but has the epiphany that there's still hope for the members of the zodiac thanks to Tohru. I also really love the art in the novels and I think I'll re-watch the anime once I have time ^.^

    I forgot how confidently Takaya sets off. By volume two, she already seems to have settled on her formula for Fruits Basket:- two parts high school slice-of-life (We get the school festival out early, and often.)- two parts friendship - one part tragic backstory- one part split between fantasy and horror and romance& four parts heartwarming -- including, of course Tohru's Words of Wisdom(TM), which this volume play on the onigiri metaphor of the previous: If you think of someone's good quali I forgot how confidently Takaya sets off.

But because it's stuck on their back, they might not be able to see their umeboshi: 'There's nothing special about me. I'm just white rice.' Maybe, the reason people get jealous of each other is because they can see so clearly the umeboshi on other people's backs.*umeboshi - salted plum*onigiri - rice ball_____________________Character power rankings:1. Hatori - Stoic, caring, sarcastic family doctor Hatori. I might be a little in love with Hatori.2. Tohru - My beautiful onigiri child.3. Hanajima/Uotani - At this point, they haven't really differentiated themselves too much, but I just really love the focus on their friendship with Tohru and how protective of her they are.4. Akito - We've only seen the smallest glimpse of the head of the Sohma clan, and he's already been set up as a sinister, controlling presence in the background of these character's lives (and shaping up to be the villain of the piece).

    Fruits Basket was my introduction to the world of Manga. Volume 1 introduced the emotional and dark but funny members of the Somah Clan, as well as Tohru Honda, the naive and somehow always cheerful main character. Volume 1 gave us the background of this story, but by volume 2, I expected some growth in the characters, and a more developed storyline (this is where my rating of 3.5 stems from). Honestly, I felt at times like I was watching the lives of these characters unfold, VLOG style, only in Fruits Basket was my introduction to the world of Manga.

I must mention here, though the Somah Clan's family history is supposed to be a secret, I sense that Tohru Honda's friends seem to sense something is amiss. No doubt, the fact Tohru Honda resides with them is a bit off...but her friends definitely detect there is more to her story than what she has been revealed to them. This must be the author's way of thickening the plot (which I am game for, as long as the plot is MOVING).I will not give up on this series as I actually like the Somah Clan, but I hope volume 3 is more interesting.

    This volume gets the highest rating because a good portion of it focuses on perhaps my favorite character of the series- Hatori. Hatori is the responsible one of the older triad (of whom right now we only know Shigure but we will later meet Ayame). Hatori is also the family doctor and the one who erases memories.

Hatori initially is portrayed as someone to be feared, but we quickly learn just how deep and beautiful his heart is. I absolutely adore the complicated tortured nature of his character and yearn for more throughout the series.We also meet Momiji. I like Momiji more later in the series- right now he's a bit too hyper and whiny for my taste. The additional German pieces of his character were a cute addition from what I saw in the anime though.We get to know Tohru's best friends Uo and Hana a bit more as well. Both are fiercely loyal and fiercely protective of Tohru, reminding me of a few of my own friends. They also are interesting, intricate characters in their own right. That right there makes me a big fan of the author- her willingness to make every character full-bodied in their own right, even if it means taking a longer route to tell the story.(view spoiler)[ (Borrowing Wiki's description for now- may write my own later- just wanted enough that I'd remember what happened in each volume.) When Tohru's friends, Arisa Uotani and Saki Hanajima, learn of her living arrangements, they inspect them by way of a sleep-over before grudgingly approving. During the night, Tohru tells her friends about how once she got lost as a child and was led home by a boy who gave her his cap, which she now treasures. At her job as an office janitor, Tohru meets a beautiful, enthusiastic, German-speaking boy who turns out to be Momiji Sohma, whose father owns the building. To promote their onigiri booth in the school cultural festival, the class convinces Yuki to wear a dress and, to his embarrassment, Momiji and Hatori Sohma, the family doctor, see him in it. When Momiji hugs Tohru, however, he transforms into the Rabbit and the secret is nearly exposed, until Yuki distracts his classmates. Hatori asks Tohru to visit him at the main Sohma estate, to her trepidation, as he is the Sohma who can suppress memories. He warns her that the Sohmas and their curse are dangerous to know: when Akito violently disapproved of Hatori's engagement to an outsider, Hatori ultimately had to suppress his fiancee's memory of their engagement. At New Years, under Hanajima's prompting, Yuki and Kyo refuse to attend the obligatory banquet because that would leave Tohru alone. When Hatori meets Tohru again, she coincidentally repeats something his former fiancee said and he decides that no matter how cold winter is, "someday the snow will melt" around her. (hide spoiler)]

    Some things in the series still annoy me (like when Tohru Honda meets someone new they immediately become good friends and she "feels" like she can trust them. I mean... come on!). However, I'm going to keep reading it because I want to see what happens. I am so sad for Kana Sohma and Hatori.

    One of two things happen when you reread old manga. The first is a reaction that goes along the lines of "Oh God, why did I like this?" The second possibility is "Ah, now I remember why I like this so much. I missed this." Okay, there are a few variations, such as the "Lord, this is dated," but essential, it's either you're embarrassed to say you liked it or happy to rediscover a series you missed.In Fruits Basket's case, it's the "I missed this" response for me. It doesn't feel dated. In fact, One of two things happen when you reread old manga. The first is a reaction that goes along the lines of "Oh God, why did I like this?"

    Don't even read this review. It took me so long to get volume two of Fruits Basket that I had no idea what was going on. I love the refresher at the beginning and that helped tremendously but, in reading, I couldn't keep the characters straight so I was a little confused. The first two thirds felt like fluff, the last third was intriguing. That is all.
