The Official Furuba Book 5 & 6 Discussion

Fruits Basket: Animals

*Updated* See comments for details. :)

I will be the first to admit that I am not very advanced in the art of leading a discussion, so here's you're chance to get heard above the screaming. What were your thoughts on Book 5 and 6?

After the break, I'm going to toss out some random questions I never got to ask tonight to start off discussion..

So does anyone have any new views on Shigure?
a)He’s a manipulative bastard
b)He’s got a master plan
c)He's really a sweety.. Really!
d)He can't keep a steady girlfriend--proof that he's hopeless!
e)He makes everyone think he knows something when he doesn’t....

What do you think of Megumi? Hana’s supernatural powers seem to complement the weirdness of the zodiac curse. Is she cursed? Is Megumi?

So is Aaya's shop of romance a
a)Cosplay shop
b)Dirty old man shop
c)Totally Harajuku girl shop
d)Really cute shop.. but only because its Ayame and that crazy assistant

Tohru says at the end of book 5, “my happiness comes from the kindness of everyone around me.” She’s a little like Blanch Dubois from A Streetcar Named Desire. What do you think?

Hey to the new Otakon and Animanga bloggers. Let me assure you that there *will* be prizes for bloggers at the next Animanga club and MC Otakon events. I have a few cool things stashed away. ;> Better start giving the gamer boys something to talk about... Glad you're here!

A big thanks to Stephanie for this great pic she did for AADL.
And if you can't read the words, basically she's really happy we have the Urusei Yatsura manga.


This is Stephanie... (Yes, I'm ACTUALLY posting on here!) I just wanted to say that I had an AWESOME time! It was even better than the first one! Next time I won't leave early. (I hope...) And speaking of leaving early, which episode did you guys watch when I was gone? Did you talk more about the sixth book?
Also, my picture's up here! I feel so special! ^_^ Apologies if the skin looks weird, the 12-color set of Copic markers (which was all I could afford) didn't come with a good skin tone so it was better to leave it white.
You should give bloggers the 12th Furuba book as prizes this time. Since it's coming out next month...
Now excuse me while I put all the Urusei Yatsura books on hold. xD


woohoo!! Ryoga-chaaaaannnn!!! don't forget about your chaterbox!!!


We watched Episode 13.. the Yuki and Momiji gender-switch episode. And the whole Hatsuharu..

Well, lets just say certain audience members were enlightened about certain jokes..

(^_^)'


Don't worry Amber, I updated it. :P
Also, I noticed that on the title thing it says "Furuba book 5 & 6 discussion". Shouldn't it be 4, 5, & 6? Just wondering! O_o


Hmm.. well originally this was just for discussion of book 6, but I then I had questions about book 5 I wanted to share so I added that.. Hey if you want to talk about book 4 too, please feel free!


?????


No, I did NOT write the thing about cheese...


...Anyone still there? Hmm, maybe I should actually answer the questions now. :/

"So, does anyone have any new views on Shigure?"
I think B... and D, too! Ha, ha. He's so hopeless! Okay, I'm sort of kidding about that part. :P

"What do you think of Megumi? Hana’s supernatural powers seem to complement the weirdness of the zodiac curse. Is she cursed? Is Megumi?"
I don't normally think about this. I'm too busy thinking about Kyo. Har. ANYWAY... I don't really think it has to do with the zodiac curse, but it's still sort of a curse. You know? Also, a friend of mine dressed up as Megumi for Halloween (although everyone thought he was a vampire or something)!

"So is Aaya's shop of romance a..."
Hmm. Ayame's shop. D, I guess. Ayame is HILLARIUOS!

"Tohru says at the end of book 5, “my happiness comes from the kindness of everyone around me.” She’s a little like Blanch Dubois from A Streetcar Named Desire. What do you think?"
...Okay, then. What was that?

Okay... that's all. Post more on here, people! And that means you, Little Goth Girl Amber! Aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!


Sorry p-chan! I've been overwhelmed by evil homework. I will post something really clever later.. I'm in class right now so I can't..

*hides behind her tiny lcd screen*


Okay! Now that I've had my evening dose of CSI Miami..

My thoughts on Shigure are as follows:
I think he must have very low self esteem. He protects himself with his carefree joking manner, but then he says he's the worst of all the people with the zodiac curse.. can't remember the page of book that is from but it happens. Also, I really want to know why he got dumped after a week.

Megumi.. While I agree that I think Megumi and his sister's abilities are not related to the Zodiac, the two are given abilities that drive others from them.. except Tohru of course. Even though those cursed by the zodiac feel isolated, I think throughout the books its demonstrated that they are hypnotically popular. Do you think Megumi is every going to find people his age who except him?

Ayame.. what a character! I just love his shop, whatever it is.

Heh, as for the Tennessee Williams bit.. Blanch is this woman who can't except reality. She lives in a fantasy world, but I don't think Tohru does. I think I just threw that out there to see if you knew the play.

Okaaaay. On to the next thought..
Kyo's curse beast.. what are your thoughts on what it looks like? I think its like an outsized rabbit beast.. where did the author get such a strangely shaped beast.

Oh, and here's a link I am sure all of you are interested in..


OO it works!! thankies!
