Fruits Basket, Vol. 5

by Natsuki Takaya

Yen Press, 2016

10 cups of tea out of 11

Summary: It’s summer vacation and the Sohma’s decide to go to the beach house. Akito arrives to crash the party.

Likes: We also get Hana’s backstory and we see her family. There are multiple dysfunctional parents in this series but Hana’s are the exception. They really support and love her. I’d also like to point out that Kazuma, guardian of Kyo and martial arts teacher, is also fabulous (particularly in this volume).

Dislike: Akito is a horrible person. Not news but there’s even more fun in this volume.

Overall we did get some fun stuff with characters who aren’t the three leads and that’s good to see. I enjoyed the side-stories and information.


Language – Medium, swear words throughout

Sexual – Mild, some innuendo
