Day 169: Fruits Basket Manga volumes 1-18

Letting go of these comics is kind of a big deal for me. When I started studying Japanese in high school my number one goal was to be able to read manga in its original language. I dreamed of being able to read Fruit Basket as it was released instead of having to wait for the translations that followed years later.
I bought the first 18 volumes of Fruits Basket during my second trip to Japan and years later I still had some hopes of sharpening my skills with them.

It's possible that I will pick up Japanese again but my rosy, youthful view of Japan has been tainted over the years. I would love to visit again but I can't see myself every living there.

  1. I'd like dibbs! You wouldn't have to ship it all the way over here, though, I'll be in Seattle in a couple of months. Is that okay?
