FRUIT BASKET BIG LOVE EDITION N.1 di Natsuki Takaya B, 400 pp, b/n A grande richiesta, torna in fumetteria l'opera più amata di Natsuki Takaya, autrice anche dell'esoterico Sogno & Illusione. Fruits Basket viene finalmente riproposto in edizione big: ciascuno dei dodici volumi, eccetto l'ultimo, consta di circa quattrocento pagine, contenendo due numeri dell'edizione originale in tankobon. Un'occasione imperdibile per chiunque non abbia ancora letto Fruits Basket, senza alcun dubbio uno degli shojo manga più appassionanti di tutti I tempi: capace di stregare sia il pubblico maschile che quello femminile, Fruits Basket cattura per la sensibilità e il tratto raffinato dell'autrice, e conquista per la complessità dell'intreccio, dove comicità e drammaticità si miscelano nel sensibilissimo talento della Takaya.

The book itself is an over-sized manga, a bit bigger than most that are released today. If you get other manga from Seven Seas or Shonen Jump, you will see immediately that the size of this book is bigger by an inch on both sides. That's a good thing as there is more room for Takaya's art to spread out as intended. I always found Furuba a difficult manga to read as a fan-sub because of the odd panel shape that Takaya uses for much of her layout. It is wonderful to see in print and flows well in a two-page layout.
The book is also not without a few shortcomings. The Tokyo Pop version released previously contained all the authors side notes that had been included in the Japanese versions. Those have been removed in the new Collector's Editions and Takaya explained that she did this because most were out of date and not relevant anymore. If you are familiar with these, you will know that many of the notes were about her gaming habits and eating habits - interesting tidbits but hardly worth saving for posterity. I, personally, do not miss them but some purists might balk that they have been removed. Another thing I do not like about the book is the cover. They used a flat, non-glossy cover on these editions. For a "Collector's Edition" I would have expected better. The flat cover feels a bit chalky in the hand and it certainly will not slide onto a shelf easily when you put your books away. I'd have rather seen a nice glossy cover on these editions. (Update - Yen Press seems to have changed the cover paper (from volume 3 on) to a semi-gloss that's a bit shinier and smoother than the paper they used for volumes 1 and 2. It's much nicer paper and feels better in-hand. It also can be wiped off and doesn't show fingerprints or dirt as badly as the first two volumes. It's a welcome change and improves an already outstanding manga.)
These editions do contain full color pages at the beginning. I believe many of these were included with the Japanese versions as well and they have been collected from the original volumes and reprinted here. Yen Press DID use glossy paper for the color pages and they look wonderful. The black and white printed pages are also nice to look at. I compared this edition to some of my Shonen Jump manga and can say that the paper quality seems better on this Yen Press version than the Shonen Jump titles. It's a bit smoother and the artwork is nice and crisp.
Finally, the story itself is truly a manga masterpiece. If you haven't read Furuba yet, you owe it to yourself to pick up this new version and start losing yourself in the world of Tohru Honda and the Sohmas. And if you've only seen the anime version of this story they I can't stress enough how much more you will enjoy the manga. There is so much more to this rich story. You will also not be disappointed with the translation offered here. Yen Press did a fine job translating this from the original Japanese and I have yet to find any problems as I read through the first volume. It's easy to follow and is a huge step up for those of you who might have only seen this as an "Engrish" fan-sub. Yen Press has also included translation notes at the end of the book that clarify cultural differences that might have been left in place during translation. These are very helpful and enhance the story.
Overall, this version is well done and highly recommended for those of us who were not able to obtain copies of Fruits Basket because it had gone out of print. These new versions truly fill a void that had existed in the manga world during the time that Furuba wasn't available. And for those of you that might have only seen the anime, you owe it to yourself to read the manga. There is so much more to this story and you will not be disappointed with this true manga classic.
The beginning of the story is the same as the anime, but after about 30 chapters into the manga, the story is now continuing off (and the manga's beginning is better than the anime and a little different). The story is getting much better and the conflict rises.
I don't want to say too much because I don't want to spoil anyone.
The manga definitely teaches a lot of life lessons so that's a thumbs up.
If you are not sure about whether you'll like this no matter how many 5 star reviews this has, then read the first few chapters here:
As for the quality of this product, I bought it used, so I can't really say much about it. Whoever I bought it from is pretty awesome at shipping because it came 3 days after I bought it! When I opened it, the book was a little worn out but not too much.
I bought volume 2 and 3 at the same time, and they're just as good and the same condition (only volume 3 looked brand new).
Since they are no longer making these, I would recommend buying them used or new (if they are available) because you will not find them in any store offline. You can only get these online now. Consider these rare and a collectible manga series!
Art is great in my opinion. I don't really know why a lot of people hate it.
One more note, if you are planning to buy this as used, make sure it's in the right language you want it to be! You don't want to buy this in Japanese if you can't read Japanese!
The series is amazing and I am already enjoying rereading Tohru's story and all the mystery surrounding the Sohma Family. I forgot how many sad plot lines are involved, but Tohru's positivity lightens the story up considerably.
As with all manga series, this first volume sets the stage and introduces the main characters. Easily my favorite character is Kyo. He’s the cat from the zodiac story and is as tragic as the animal he represents.
I enjoyed all the characters in the book except for Kagura. She is just a little too over the top for me. She also doesn’t seem to fit in. Each of the characters, up to the point of Kagura’s introduction, have a vulnerability -- something that tugs at your heart and makes you like them. Not so with Kagura. In fact, I was relieved she was only a part of the story for a few pages.
As for the plot and pacing of the story: I love it. As soon as I finished this volume, I wanted to pick up volume two. Natsuki Takaya has done a great job creating a story that quickly pulls you in and keeps you hooked. She reveals one secret only to tantalize you with another.
She has also done a great job giving the characters personalities that play well off of each other and really fill out the story and bring it to life. It is so easy to relate to all the characters (except Kagura), but it’s especially easy to relate to the characters of Yuki and Kyo. They embody vulnerabilities that we all deal with. And watching Tohru draw them out is really great.
Since this is manga I can’t help but to comment on the artwork. I’ll admit that if I only look at the art, I would have to say it’s not my favorite. This style is a bit too simplistic for my tastes. However, the good story more than makes up for it and I find I really don’t notice that this is not my preferred drawing style.
All things considered, I’d highly recommend this series. This volume in particular is a very good first volume. I will say, having read the complete series already, that the series does not stay as light as it is right now. The foreshadowing in this volume is not in vain.
