Fruits Basket, Volume 5

Author: Natsuki Takaya
Series: Fruits Basket #5
Rating: 2.5 / 5 stars
Verdict: Buy

This is definitely not one of my favorite volumes in the series.  The plot drags along in this one, and I don't feel as if anything really happened.  

We are introduced to Kisa, who doesn't talk.  And Tohru, being the all loving and self sacrificing in the name of others gal that she is, is the one who Kisa finally bonds with to help her out of her issues.  And Kisa's issue with not talking gets some inner monologue heart to heart from Yuki.  But even that is hard to hold my attention.  Now, the tiger Zodiac, it is ADORABLE.  The shining light in this volume.

There really isn't much else to say.  Ayame makes another guest appearance and is as annoying as ever.  And the Yuki fan club, which is the creepiest thing ever, also makes an appearance and gets a little bit of retribution coming to them.

All and all, definitely not one of my favorites.
