It's cute. It's weird. I don't feel compelled to immediately finish the whole series, though. ( )

The continuing adventure of Tohru Honda and the Sohma clan. Meeting a few more of the Zodiac Sohma's as well as becoming more enamoured with Kyo and Yuki. ( )

Better than the first manga - the character Hatori as in the Anime has a really interesting background, and I feel that this is what captivates the reader to continue reading - knowing that it does get better (and easier to read!) ( )

Mags and I started to read just a chapter or so last night and, before we knew it, there was one lonely chapter left. The clock read 12:30 am, and we had church to go to, so we saved those last few pages for today. Okay, the cover has Yuki Sohma on it, aka Prince Charming, Prince Yuki, Rat Boy and Damn Rat (the last one is Kyo’s pet name for him), and Maggie’s lip marks have permanently tarnished Sohma-kun’s face. She’s eager for us to finish with book three, which has Kyo on the cover, so she can kiss all over him, too, and then make book 2 and book 3 fight over book 1. What a deal, not only do we get books to read, but they’re dolls and action figures, too. LOL!

So book 2 picks up after Tohru’s been staying… or shacking up as her aunt and cousins call it… with Shigure, Yuki and Kyo, and in this book her two best friend’s Hanna (she has electrowave powers) and Uo (who used to be a Yankee, which is like a gang girl, I guess) come for a sleep over. This can prove disastrous if the guys aren’t careful, since an embrace from the opposite sex, accidental or on purpose, can cause them to transform into their zodiac animal. Also in this book is a cross-dressing Yuki, a half-German boy who likes to wear girls clothes (Yuki was coerced, Momiji dresses that way because he likes to look pretty), New Year’s banquet, and Tohru is summoned to the Sohma estate to meet with Hatori, the one who erases people’s memories when they find out about the Sohma family curse. Lots of sugar and love from Tohru and lots of animosity and rancor back and forth between Yuki and Kyo, with a smattering of perv-ishness from Shigure.

Oh yeah… and a herd of cats.
