Welcome to フルーツバスケット Vol. 3 (Original Edition)
We have read Volume 1 (Collector’s Edition) / Volume 1 + 2 (Original Edition) as the Beginner Book Club.
Now we’re continuing from Volume 2 (Collector’s Edition) / Volume 3 (Original Edition) as an offshoot book club. For more details on the volumes’ schedules please see the individual threads below.
If you want to take part… just buy the book and join in the discussion! Or maybe catch up on the previous volumes first? There’s a membership poll further down.
Not sure if this is for you? Check out the sample pages in the Nomination Post - remember that your fellow book club members and the vocab sheet will be here to help you out though
Buy the Book
We are reading the Collector’s Edition - if you are reading the eBook you’ll need to buy two volumes of the original. See the reading schedule to find out which volumes to buy!
Warning: there is a spin-off series called ‘Another’, which has a very similar-looking front cover to the Collector’s Edition.
There are of course other eBook retailers, including BookWalker, which has a choice of ‘colour’ or normal editions.
