Format: Paperback
Out of the entire "Fruits Basket" series, the penultimate volume is the most important.

And the twenty-second volume is when Natsuki Takaya truly mingles transcendent love and joy with the bitterness of a troubled past. Assorted plot threads are quietly wrapped up in preparation for the grand finale, even as Takaya finally deals with the biggest problem that faces the Sohma family. Things will never be the same after this.

After years of bitter hatred and estrangement, Kyo finally has a messy, painful confrontation with his biological father, only to remember something about his mother's suicide and how she was driven to it. But his relief is short-lived -- Tohru thinks she's been rejected by him, and doesn't want to see him. Cue excessive teasing by Yuki, Arisa and Hana.

At the same time, Arisa grapples with her feelings for Kureno, and a repentant Akito arranges for the cursed Sohmas to gather in one week. And when Tohru is finally released from the hospital, Kyo pursues her across the town to tell her how he really feels about her. And their important meeting will change the Sohma clan forever... as well as the curse.

There are a lot of different changes in the twenty-second "Fruits Basket" -- at least one character's "happily ever after" is shown, surprising details of the curse are revealed, and the very heart of the Sohma family is changed forever. I won't say just what happens, except that it means that the series is really almost over, because there's few places left for it to go after what happens here.

It's hard to believe, but we're finally at the penultimate volume of Fruits Basket.

This one is heavy on couples issues, as Kureno decides what to do with his life, Hiro and Kisa discuss what the change in his status means for their relationship, Yuki tries to figure out how to explain the curse to Machi as they reach the point where it wouldn't be fair of him to proceed further without full disclosure, and Kyo struggles to face Tohru again just as his time runs out - gaining the most surprising cheerleader of all in the process.

This is also the biggest volume of all for Akito, as she reaches a crossroads and we find out whether Momiji's kind but blunt conversation with her at the hospital sunk in - and she issues a Zodiac summons combined with a proclaimation regarding Kyo...

Perhaps the biggest character of all in this volume, however, is the curse itself; as from the Main House to Shigure's place, Aya's pad to Ritsu's lodgings, the wheel that Momiji set into motion turns - leading to an unforgettable montage that won't leave anyone with a dry eye who's followed the series through it's course.

This is what everyone's been waiting for - and the emotional payoff is big.

I've always loved all the fruits basket books. It's sad they stopped producing them, but I would recommend it to those who are into the Chinese zodiac. It's also a pretty funny book.

I love how Natsuki Takaya includes little doodles on the back cover. Anyways, this is, once again, a perfect volume of this series, adding onto the stories and emotions. It's a must-read!

It's an older series that's discontinued if I recall correctly. I enjoyed it, hense why I decided to collect all the volumes. I definitely recommend it to others because of the character development, the humor and the romance.

It may turn some people off because of how long it is, and how many unimportant characters there are, but it's a good read nonetheless in my opinion.
