Series: Fruits Basket #2
Rating: 3.5 / 5 stars
The second volume in the series dives a little deeper into the Sohma family. With New Years approaching, the Sohma family is preparing for the biggest event of the year. Meanwhile, Tohru meets a few more members of the family - Momiji and Hatori. And even gets a glimpse at the elusive Akito.
Family tensions start to heat up when Kyo and Yuki decide to skip the annual New Years celebration in favor of keeping Tohru company for her first New Years without her mother. Tensions between Kyo and Yuki aren't simmering down either, as they both secretly are envious of one another and both are starting to show feelings for Tohru.
And Tohru, for her part, is as lovable and scatter brained as her usual self.
A good addition to the series, continuing to set up the plot and the characters as we dive deeper into the Sohma family curse.
