Fruits Basket another volume 1

Oh my goodness, is it actually time for our Fruits Basket another review? It seems like everyone's already reviewed this book and hated it by now. This is where I once again want to state my theory that Fruits Basket mostly grabbed everybody's attention for the gimmick. Every series Natsuki Takaya has done since then also has all the human drama that Fruits Basket did, but people are all, "It's not as good as Fruits Basket." They just want more auto-relatable characters.

But we actually enjoyed this book, so let's talk about it! Spoilers ahead!

Aww, it's nice to read a review from someone who likes the series. I hope people are willing to give it a chance despite all the online reviewers hating it. You just have to remember that it's not Fruits Basket Part Two. It's Fruits Basket another. That's a different thing.

Anyway, this week we have two new releases! My Monster Secret 12 and Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun 7! And tune in on Thursday for our review of the first volume of The Voynich Hotel!

Today I'm thankful for the kittens all snuggled together in the cat carrier (if their mother had joined them, we would have snatched them all up and whisked them away to the shelter), fond remembrances of Fruits Basket, getting to make more progress in reading Karneval, getting to work on Land of the Lustrous today (oh my goodness it's been forever), and finally managing to finish the simulpub chapter we were working on that proved to be surprisingly tricky.
