Fruits Basket

Post by KoiNoVash » Sat Oct 18, 2003 1:07 am

I swear Fruits Basket is one of the cutest animes I have seen in terms of plot and characters. Toru is so sweet and Yuki and Kyo are HOT! Doesn't Shigure just crack you up? "Oh we're all snow white!" The dialogues other characters have with Shigure are the best, he's definitly one of my all time favorite characters.

I need to finish FruBa. I've only got the first DVD, but this is definitely one of my all time favourite animes. I love Shigure to bits, and Kyo is great, too. Is it true that Tokyopop has liscensed the manga?

I've only seen the first DVD (I won it at A-kon's Anime Jeopardy! W00T!), but it's mad cute.

Joey: The question is, Rachel, does he like you? ''Cuz if he doesn''t, then it''s all just a moo point.
Rachel: Huh...a...moo point?
Joey: Yeah. It''''s like a cow''s opinion. It doesn''t matter....It''s moo.

Certain people *glares at mirror* were ignorant enought to make another Fruits Basket topic even after looking up and down the topics, and certain people need to see the eye doctor. I just going to do a copy and paste edit job.

A while ago, my friend Cassandra let me borrow her Fruits Basket 1 DVD. I saw it, and loved it. I want to see more episodes though! Wah... And a few words: L-O-V-E! Lovely Yuki! Chatter-chatter-chatter-cha! Chatter-chatter-chatter-cha! Those girls crack me up. All the characters interest me, specifically Yuki, Uo, Kyo, and the Vibe girl (Damn, she's my fave character and I can't remember her name.).
That avatar is a self portrait. Really. Really. No matter how much it looks like D'Angelo, that's me. .... Oh, just shut up.

I've seen the whole anime, and I really, REALLY enjoyed it. One of the cutest, most touching anime ever made.

I can't wait for TP to release the English manga. :D

Mwahahahahaha, for I have Fruits Basket volume 1 as of....5 minutes ago! Hehehehehe :twisted: On top of that, A.I. Love You that are not due until February. I feel so special....and it seems TokyoPop has a new logo that you can't miss....it is a gigantic red square at the top of the border with teh little....weird head symbol. All I can say it, it is easier to find which company released what manga. For a crappy Barnes and Noble, they actually have some stuff early O_O *gasp*

I should stop, but manga is like drugs, its cheap when you buy one the first time...but then, you're hooked and you buy a bunch at once for that sweet sweet happiness O_o

My friend Lydia bought the first volume of the manga, and I read it today. I must say, I didn't enjoy it as much as I hoped. I'm interested in the anime (borrowing, not buying) but the manga just didn't appeal to me that much.

Actually, I got Fruits Basket volume 1 on DVD for 20$ at Target. I was suprised for it to be so low compared to the 27-30$ ones at Best Buy and Suncoast.

Fruits Basket is one of my favorite anime series! I have four volumes of the manga. I also have the first two DVDs. It's a good series because it can be sad and serious but funny at the same time. I can't wait until volume five comes out! I also plan on collecting the last two DVDs.
