Welcome Back Grimms!
How’s my favorite crew to dish about manga with doing today? I hope all is well in your perspective worlds.
I can only cross my fingers that each of you is doing wonderful. If you’re not then perhaps a quick stop at GrimmGirl will at least offer a reprieve.
A quick reminder…
This post contains zero spoilers for volumes seven but there will be spoilers for volumes 1-6. If you have yet to read those volumes please see my earlier work.
The Story So Far…
Can we just take a moment to discuss everything that happened last volume? I mean the growth of Kyo has been giving me life for days! And seeing flashbacks of baby Kyo? Oh my goodness…
Just kill me now.
Seeing everything he has overcome made me cry buckets. And the scene where Tohru sees his final transformation and just runs to him was absolutely beautiful.
Like Jesus sliding down an ice cream rainbow while giving away free concert tickets and puppies as G-Dragon dropped a dope beat sort of beautiful.
In fact I will never, ever, ever, NEVER forgive the original anime for how they portrayed Tohru when she learned about Kyo’s secret. Why ruin such a beautiful moment?
On top of everything that happened with Kyo we got to see Yuki and Ayame together! Nothing short of hilarious. When Tohru gets excited about visiting Ayame’s shop musing on how she’s always wondered what type of shop sold maid and nurse uniforms and you see Yuki’s face I laughed so hard!
Oh my poor Yuki! You had no idea what you got yourself into when you asked to visit your brother’s place of business.
Thoughts on Volume 7
As can be expected we get another introduction to some new characters. Between you and me one of my least favorite characters finally rams onto the scene. While that introduction is a little lackluster for me personally there’s still a lot to look forward to in this volume.
Flashbacks help us see Uo-Chan in a whole new light. Not that she wasn’t already top notch to begin with! If that wasn’t enough to push you towards reading this volume the glorious day where the word, “panties” was spoken in front of Kyo and Yuki has come and I’m 100% sure they’re still coming to terms with it! The laughter I had at their expense!
Yuki’s Fan Club also makes an appearance but I don’t think anything can surpass them trying to infiltrate Hana’s house. I am still laughing about that.
I can’t wait to pick up the next volume and hit you guys with some more Fruits Basket. In the meantime any guesses on who I peg as one of my least favorite characters?
