Fruits basket?

Post by Naiwen on Thu Jan 05, 2012 4:00 pm

Do you like fruits basket? I do. I love it, one of my first ever shojos. I know it's a bit cliched and girly and stuff, but still like it.

I liked the manga so much - I only watched a few episodes.
Loads of people hate it for some reason.

I think the story was really imaginative, but around volumes 16-20s, I find it got a little muddled up and the past was getting mixed up with the future.
But otherwise a good story.

Yep, can be a little confusing especially around these parts, but yeah, overall a very nice story. And about the "loads of people hate it" part, I'd say, it's because it got mushy romance and stuff in the manga so yeah, might not suit a guy's tastes. It's only aimed towards girls.

The haters were 70% girls on another forum.
Perhaps some parts annoy them, but otherwise it has a good storyline, so I don't see what they hate.

Might be because those girls disregard the mushy romance part a well.

I suppose so. But then there are many more mushy romance anime/mangas out there which are very popular.
Maybe some animes did the part better.

Yeah, don't know why these girls don't kick out these ones to the curb myself. XD I mean, if they dislike fb so much, then they should also hate those shojos. I guess only shojos got mushy romance in them right?

Shojos are almost all romance, or if they aren't, they generally have a hint of it somewhere.

If you can't deal with it, why watch it?

lol yeah, a bit ironic how these girls could like one manga in the genre, and not another in the same genre, is it not?

I know. Maybe it's because it's so popular it's the one everyone picks on.

People don't really pick on smaller shojos as much, but as Fruits Basket is one of the most popular shojo manga, everyone is finding fault with it.

Isn't there less romance in it though?
Fruits basket is almost all romance, if you strip it down. ^_^

Yeah, would be because of that. XD Sakura's more about magic and fantasy, so yeah. And the graphics and stuff are epic, amazing!!!

It's magic girl, it's hard to find fault with! XD

Oh, but I heard Furuba won't have another series or something because the mangaka threw a tantrum at the way they've changed/manipulated the manga?
