Read full description of the books:
This is Takaya Natsuki's first work, and I bought it entirely due to my respect for her as a storyteller/artist and my love for Fruits Basket, which is arguably her best work to date. I actually wasn't even quite certain what this series was about until I got the volume.
I'd already heard ahead of time that this series wasn't as good as Fruits Basket, so I was prepared for some mediocrity going into it. And it was there. In this volume, we see that Takaya hasn't yet mastered the foreshadowing that she uses with such skill in her later works. Everything feels very simple and straightforward, and the first couple of chapters feel very episodic. Also, the heroine of the series is the typical all-loving, very accepting/forgiving, endearingly normal, not-so-bright heroine that Takaya seems to migrate towards.
What makes this series unique, however, is that the heroine shares the stage almost equally with the hero. Sometimes the hero even seems to dominate, which is rare to see outside of yaoi-type shoujo and gothic/macabre shoujo. It's a refreshing change, in my opinion. And I can already see Takaya's ability to play up painful human emotion being put into play. I got sniffle-y at a couple of instances in the volume, even though the series as a whole hasn't really hooked me yet. Nevertheless, I'm confident that Takaya is going to turn out a good work, so I'll definitely be following this series.
(Oh, and for Fruits Basket fans out there: there are a few pages of Chapter 126 included at the very end of the volume.)

Read information about the authorNatsuki Takaya (高屋 奈月 Takaya Natsuki, real name Naka Hatake) is the penname of a Japanese manga artist best-known for creating the series Fruits Basket. She was born on July 7, 1973; (Tanabata). Takaya is left-handed and once revealed that she wanted to be a mangaka since first grade, when her sister started drawing.
She was born in Shizuoka, Japan, but was raised in Tokyo, where she made her debut in 1992. She enjoys video games such as the Final Fantasy series or Sakura Wars, or working on her different manga series, such as Fruits Basket, which is the second best-selling shōjo manga ever in Japan, and the top selling shōjo manga in North America. Fruits Basket has also been adapted into a twenty-six-episode anime series.
In 2001, Takaya received a Kodansha Manga Award for shōjo manga for Fruits Basket.
According to Takaya (in a sidebar of a Fruits Basket manga volume), she enjoys drawing girls (girly ones) more than she does boys. Takaya also enjoys electronics and music, but dislikes talking about herself. Also revealed in a sidebar of Fruits Basket, Takaya broke her drawing arm (left) after Fruits Basket volume six was published. She had to go into surgery, and as a result, had put Fruits Basket on a brief hiatus. Takaya made a full recovery, but complains that her handwriting had gotten uglier, due to the surgery. During her hospital stay, she gained an interest in baseball.
