Series: Fruits Basket #14
Rating: 3.5 / 5 stars
This volume focuses mostly on Rin and Yuki. Rin, like Tohru, is determined to find a way to break the Sohma curse not for herself but for the sake of others. She goes to Shigure, who she hopes will have an idea, but she comes up empty handed in that respect. What she doesn’t discover to find, as she ends up passing out and eventually winds up in the hospital, is that she finds a friend in Tohru despite her own wishes.
Yuki focuses on the student council board and his zany new friends, including the girl who rips apart the room without explanation. We get some back story on some secondary characters, but it really doesn’t interest me much however. And a revelation in the Yuki/Tohru relationship is made.
The greatest interest in this volume is right at the end, when they reveal the casting for the school play. The plot line is definitely starting to drag, so hopefully Rin or Tohru can make a break in the Sohma curse soon.
