Fruits Basket, Vol. 1 - Natsuki Takaya This is a fun book. I like everything related to mythology, astrology, etc. So a girl going to live with a bunch of cute boys, who, when embraced by a member of the opposite sex, are turning into a Zodiac animal, looks like a great manga to me. Tohru is a nice and optimist girl; Honda is mysterious but kind of girly; Shigure is the funny friend, and Kyo is very impulsive. I like that Honda and Kyo can not get along because they are a rat and a cat. Very original.

I did not like the cousin who keeps kicking at poor Kyo! And it took me some time to get used to read from right to left; at the beginning everything was confused to me :S
