Fruits Basket, Volume 19

Author: Natsuki Takaya
Series: Fruits Basket #19
Rating: 3 / 5 stars
Verdict: Buy

I had hoped this volume would be a substantial plot volume, but it turns out to be mostly filler once again.  While Tohru and Kyo have a moment, and the younger of the Sohma zodiac clan discuss Kyo having to be locked away in the cat room by Akito, these plot points only cover maybe 1/5 of the volume.  The rest deals mostly with the annoying student council group.  And while Nabe is linked to Tohru's past, the backstory has nothing to do with the Sohma family and really little impact on the plot overall, although the side plots with the student council members do give Yuki more face time since he doesn't seem able to be around Kyo and Tohru in the same room anymore.

Again, definitely not a very strong volume but with one four left, they have to start getting interesting pretty soon!
