I have to start with Fruits Basket because it was the first manga I ever read. For me, this series has so much nostalgia even its flaws are endearing.
Here are my quick comments on the manga: 🌸Manga: Fruits Basket
🌸Artist: Natsuki Yamaha
🌸Art: While I like both the original style and that in the end, the fact you can't recognize characters as the same in vol 1 and 23 suggests it changed too much
🌸Romance: By the end of this series, pretty much every character is paired off. While I personally love that, it means that a lot of screen time is spent away from the main pair. 🌸Story content: The basic premise of this manga is fun and pretty unique, but most of the characters are their tropes played pretty straight. For me (and most shoujo fans, let's be honest), formulaic isn't really a criticism. 🌸Kid safe: One of the things I consider a lot in shoujo manga is that the target audience is about 11 yrs old. So I think it matters that the depictions of romance in them are healthy relationships. While fruits basket has fairly unreleastic portrayals of abuse and human reactions to this, it doesn't have an underlying theme of accepting bad behavior so it still passes for me ^__^
"Così mi è venuta voglia...di provare a creare qualcosa...mi sarebbe andata bene qualsiasi cosa!
Sarebbe andato bene davvero tutto...volevo mettere alla prova me stesso e capire quanto potere di creare io avessi...io volevo creare con queste mani...un qualcosa che avesse una forma..chissà forse volevo solo sapere se poteva esserci un qualcosa che non potesse essistere senza di me!"
"I wanted, to able to make somthing...And so I watend to create something ...something...anything would be good. I just happened to be best at sewing in the begging I could have done cooking or gradening. I Just wanted to make sure that I hate the power...to make something. I wanted to know that with thee hands. I could create something whit shape. That I was capable of making something. I don't know. What I would like to do. Whitout a sense of self you can't exist...so it can be anything"
