    All right buckle up. Some amendments to my Vol 1 review - the kid who is weak and we see at the end of the volume is Shiki, Akito & Shigure's son (a first year middle school student). Will wonders never cease. Hanajima meanwhile appears to have a son as well, Ryo, who is a third year in middle school (but not a Sohma...so then did she not end up with Kazuma?). Momiji and an unknown woman had a daughter, Mii, who's so darling. Momo is Momiji's assistant and quite close with Mii. Ayame had two kids - All right buckle up.

Ayame had two kids - a son Chizuru and a daughter Hibiki (who is a spitting image of her mother but practically Ayame in personality). Hiro is mentioned, though little is said and Kisa not at all. I still think that Kinu is Hatori's kid (either Uotani & Kagure's kid or Hatori's), I..haven't seen anything about Ritsu. Meanwhile the story itself is better paced and explained - I understand Mitoma better and she plays off Shiki well. And while it's hard not to compare every one against their parents I felt somewhat chastised by Chizuru who apparently is compared against his father (positively and negatively) fairly often. Yes yes I'll try to see them as individuals. The ending bonus is a scene from Mutsuki's childhood where he's recounting his fav memory of home with his parents and how he learned about the Zodiac Curse from Yuki. In a scene that's far more emotional when you remember what Yuki's life was like as a kid, it gave some good insight into Mutsuki as well as how hard the Sohma Generation we all read about with Tohru are trying to not repeat those mistakes.

    3.5/5 This one was definitely a lot easier to follow than the first volume. It slows down the barrage of new Sohma introductions to give us more of a glimpse into our main character's life. I almost wish that would've happened in volume 1, because it explains SO much about her character and I feel bad for thinking she was annoying in vol 1 (or maybe that's the intent?)

I do think it's interesting that Fruits Basket: Another is almost a reverse Furuba - instead of a good-natured outsider coming to the Sohma family to help them deal with their trauma, we have the Sohma family going to a traumatized outsider. Honestly this whole series is very strange for me. It's riding entirely on nostalgia and fanservice and yet is really cagey with fanservice of the adult characters. It's very hard to follow at times and (particularly in the first volume) it seems like most of the plot is driven by "look who had offspring!!" But that being said, I do really enjoy seeing the next generation. It makes the ending of Fruits Basket feel even more satisfying knowing that our favorite characters were not only able to be happy with themselves, but have also effectively ended the cycle of abuse and trauma within one generation. There's a particularly touching scene of Yuki/Machi's son recounting when he learned about the curse. The whole way he reacted to it shows you how much warmth exists in their household and how Yuki and Machi were able to give their son a loving, supportive environment. It made me tear up not gonna lie. I'm not sure when/if we'll be seeing the third volume in English since it's been on hiatus for a while in Japanese. I do selfishly hope for one more so we can see some of the original characters again (I NEED TO SEE TOHRU AND KYO).

    I ended up loving this book so much. I loved seeing the world from the OG series. I felt so many emotions while reading this volume. I will definitely be finishing up this series and hopefully soon.

    The second volume does a better job of providing background/context regarding Sawa’s relationship with her mother. Subsequently the reader is better able to understand why Sawa is so emotionally damaged and insecure. I’m glad there was *some* character growth. We also meet the rest of the Sohma children in this volume. I’m mainly reading the sequel series because I’m feeling nostalgic and because I’m curious about the offspring of the characters from the original series.

Um, I think there's a romance being introduced between the MC and Akito's kid, which I'm not down for because of the age difference. But other than that I think I'm really enjoying this series and I hope she decides to continue it.

    This rating is 100% pure nostalgia and I might bump it up to five stars and stop pretending I'm not reading these volumes as one long bonus epilogue to one of my favourite mangas of all time. First I have to find the original manga in my boxes (everything I own is still in moving boxes and I'm kinda depressed about the whole thing) and just hunker down with chocolate on a weekend and read all 23 volumes in one epic single-person readathon.

    While not as grand as the original series, I'm really enjoying this slice-of-life look at the families after the curse was broken. While not as grand as the original series, I'm really enjoying this slice-of-life look at the families after the curse was broken.

    This is definitely an improvement on the last volume, which I actually had to read through twice to try to grasp onto everything going on and get a sense of where the actual story was. Volume 2 gives a useful look into Sawa's family and her distant/emotionally abusive mother. It's a funny kind of irony to have a character seeking out the SOHMA family for functional family units.

Volume 2 gives a useful look into Sawa's family and her distant/emotionally abusive mother. It's a funny kind of irony to have a character seeking out the SOHMA family for functional family units. It's very clear that the generation we were introduced to in the original series is desperate not to repeat the sins of their parents...seriously, just about all of them were horrible, abusive parents. Hajime even makes an explicit reference to Kyo's biological father, who is apparently still alive, and says that he hates him and considers Shishou is his true grandfather (fuck yeah he is!). This divide is clearest in this volume's epilogue of sorts, which shows young Mutsuki with his parents, Yuki and Machi, making footprints in the snow (oh, my heart!), and Mutsuki making papa-Yuki weep when he tells him how happy their family makes him. I REALLY wish we didn't just see the original characters veiled in shadows...honestly, I care a lot more about their lives and growth than the more hijinks-y story of their kids. There are a few more Sohma introductions in this volume, and it looks like Volume 3 will have everyone up at the family cottage for vacation. And given that the vacation volumes of the original series are where things really started to turn in the story, I'm hoping for some dramatics. I do wish this series had more explicit romance like its predecessor did, but the characters here feel a bit more young and immature than their counterparts. I think I had the most fun piecing together the family tree and references to the original series, which I've outlined to the best of my abilities under the spoiler tag below: (view spoiler)[Right off the bat, there are a few throwbacks at the school: Motoko Minagawa, Yuki's biggest fan, has a daughter Ruriko, whose love and devotion doesn't discriminate between Sohmas and is a bit of a bully to Sawa. Takei, the student council president before Yuki, is now a teacher and still has a crush of sorts on Yuki/Mutsuki. Saki Hanajima's brother, Megumi, is a teacher at the school, and has a nephew, Rio, who is a friend of Shiki's -- it's not said who Saki's husband/Rio's father is, but sadly, I don't think it's Shishou :( Kyo and Tohru still live in the country/mountains away from the Sohma estate and have three kids: Hajime, another Kyo-clone son who Sawa runs into on the street, and a daughter. Kazuma/Shishou is still alive, and Kyo is working at a dojo. I REALLY hope we get to see them in the next volume. The nostalgia really kicked into high gear when it's made explicitly clear that Hajime and Mutsuki are living in Shigure's old house...loved the broken ceiling reference! Yuki and Machi had a son, Mutsuki -- I find it hilarious that he's basically exactly like Ayame, which I'm sure Yuki LOVES. The one-shot at the end of the story features the lovely family unit. Kakeru and Komaki have a daughter, Michi, who runs with the Sohma clan. I love that the Yuki/Kakeru bromance persists in their blended families. Haru and Rin had twins, Sora and Riku. Riku is basically a clone of his father, down to the hair and the aloof affect. Sora looks just like her mother but is NOTHING like her. Bubbly and sweet and all sorts of lightness and fun. How those two tortured souls managed to produce such an ebullient child is beyond me. Ayame and Mine still run their costume shop and have two kids, Chizuru and Hibika. Hibika looks and acts just like her mother -- she LOVES dressing up. Chizuru is a hilarious departure from his insane parents and is a bit more down-to-earth and skeptical of his father's flakiness. He's sweet, though, and kind to Sawa. Shiki is the son of Akito and Shigure. He definitely takes after his mother in personality and weak constitution, but is friends with Rio and Chizuru. There's clearly something happening between him and Sawa, and I'm curious how it'll get resolved in the next volume. Also very sweet that Mutsuki is the "big brother" figure to Shiki, especially after all the drama between Yuki and Akito in the original series. Kinu, who at 20 is older than the main cast, is the daughter of Hatori and Mayu (I assumed when they made reference to her mother being a teacher...the doctor father could be none other than Hatori, not to mention she's drawn to resemble him quite closely). She also lives at/around the old Sohma house and is a bit of a parental figure to the youngins. We meet Mina in Volume 2, who is Momiji's daughter with an unnamed woman. Loved seeing that there has been reconciliation/reunion between the "forgotten" family and that Momo is working for Momiji, who now runs the family business. Hiro and his sister, Hinata, are mentioned at the end of Volume 2 by Mutsuki as possibly going to the Sohma summer estate, but that's the only mention of them. Still no explicit references to Kisa, Ritsu and Mitsuru, or Kureno and Arisa (part of me hopes they leave near Kyo and Tohru in the country and hang out all the time ;) (hide spoiler)]

    Still not sure what purpose this new series serves, except to dish up a tepid retread of a brilliant story. Is it a money grab by the publisher? The story is so unfocused, the characters are introduced in such a rapid and jumbled fashion I have a hard time figuring out who is who. Even guessing which kid is the offspring of the original Sohnas hasn’t proved much of a challenge.

    The "bonus" manga at the end was better than the entire first and second volume of this mini series. I wanted to see the old characters again (not their mini-me versions).

    once again, coming from a long time fan of the original fruits basket series... i'm really starting to like the polarity between the original series' main character Tohru and her beautiful but tragic relationship with her passed mother, and Sawa's relationship with her legitimately awful, abusive mother. shiki definitely starts to compare tohru and sawa, almost bringing it up to her for a moment. it's so fun to put the two characters side by side and see similarities but also read them so differe once again, coming from a long time fan of the original fruits basket series... i'm really starting to like the polarity between the original series' main character Tohru and her beautiful but tragic relationship with her passed mother, and Sawa's relationship with her legitimately awful, abusive mother. shiki definitely starts to compare tohru and sawa, almost bringing it up to her for a moment. it's so fun to put the two characters side by side and see similarities but also read them so differently. i'm starting to like sawa more and more. i'm paying a lot more attention to her introspective moments and i can relate with her struggle with how to be perceived. i love the message hajime presents, comparing the unhealthy relationship and excuses to have and make with family because "they're family, i owe them something," to a curse. it makes me think about how he must have understood the retelling of his family's actual bond-turned-curse over the years of misunderstanding. "Expecting someone to smile and say thank you to their family, when that "family" is stepping all over them--that's just abuse. It's just a curse." and to have sawa finally have a moment to open up with such a small voice, felt so good. and having the character she opened up to initially be hajime, and seeing how much he must have learned from his parents and UGH!! this series is just having me learn to love old characters in new ways simply by reading these new characters. also -- the art is stunning, once again. i haven't read the later volumes of the original series in quite a while, but i remember the art being so clean with thin lines, but sometimes coming across too clean...almost stiff. i feel like takaya is playing with thicker lines with some chapter pages, different expressions, more fluid poses. sometimes the detailed pictures of sawa's expressions and moments are just!! stunning!! it's making me fall for this new character even harder.

There’s so much that needs to be resolved, it’s hard to believe the next volume will be the last! My two major criticisms with the last volume were the choppy dialog, and Sawa being so pathetic. This volume however really got things right. Sawa’s way more relatable, and the dialogue has smoothed out a lot more compared to the last volume. Still a couple choppy parts and eye-roll moments, but a lot easier to get through. This volume really amps up the nostalgia trip from original Fruits Basket. To quote Sawa, “I feel kind of sparkly inside.” I might just have to pick up the original and reread it again!

I cannot wait to find out what it is that she's done that she cannot remember. It has to be juicy. I am surprise by how they still treat Kyo. Even his oldest son and other younger members of the Sohma's family have taken notice. And do not care much for the horrible treatment of the member's born under the zodiac of the Cat. Even though this series has just started recently I look forward to this will play out down the line. I cannot wait for the next volume.

    In this volume, we learn more about Sawa and why she is the she is. We also meet Shiki, who was absent from the previous volume. The Sohma family continues their strange, but caring antics toward Sawa. It seems this is a bit of a reverse from the original series: instead of an outsider helping the family, the family is determined to help this outsider.

    I fell in love with Manga when I was introduced to Fruits Basket. The follow-up series has filled me with nostalgia and a warm fuzzy feeling knowing that the story started before has continued with such ease. The second in the series so far, this book opens up a few more secrets about our main character and continues to reveal the lives of the children of the people we loved so much in the first series.

    I picked this up because I was curious about how the original Sohmas ended up after Fruits Basket was over, but you don't really get that--only their various children. The parents are referenced but absent, and even flashbacks of them don't show their faces. The first book was a bit confusing, but this one clarifies things better. Sawa has some similarities to Tohru, but here you get more understanding of her background and behavior. It's a sad book, be warned.

The parents are referenced but absent, and even flashbacks of them don't show their faces. The first book was a bit confusing, but this one clarifies things better. Sawa has some similarities to Tohru, but here you get more understanding of her background and behavior. It's a sad book, be warned.
