A Good Laugh
9 July 2005 | by sweetgurl8915See all my reviews

I am a die hard Fruits Basket fan. So when I decided to watch to movie interested to see how it turned out. I have to say that I was overall happy with what it had to deliver. For those who have read the manga, it follows the books pretty well. There are some differences and added scenes, but that is to be expected. I found myself laughing at some of the things that went on in those added scenes, or feeling that these extras scenes really fit in well with the story. For people who haven't read the manga, they should find it entertaining, a little silly but entertaining. But I would suggest that they read the manga, which even though they show is good, because its better than the book.
