Fruits Basket, Volume 9

Author: Natsuki Takaya
Series: Fruits Basket #9
Rating: 4 / 5 stars
Verdict: Buy

Finally, a reprieve from the annoying characters (minus Yuki's comembers on the council, who make a brief appearance).  This volume offers insight into the back stories of Tohru's two best friends, plus one of them finally gets a love interest (who has a secret of his own).

Then we get some quality Kyo (who is a little less angry and loud these days), and while visiting his martial arts master we have a pretty sad but important revelation revealed.  Without giving anything away (especially since I already know how it turns out in the end), let's just say it is not shocking but definitely a downer of a reveal.

With school out for the summer, fun is sure to abound in the next few episodes, and I have to say I am glad we will be getting a break from all of Yuki's crazy entourage.
