Merci beaucoup a ichi_san qui m'a dit que les scans sont dispo! ^___^ (Yes, I know. I never type with accents when writing French. >_<;; )

I took a quick peek through, but there are places I simply can't make out what's written (too blurry when blown up). Also, it seems there's a page missing between pages 6 & 7 in the scans. I'll see what I can write up tonight, and will post that on LJ but the site's update will have to wait until the missing page and words can be filled in. :/

From what I've read though, it's a beautiful chapter about the origins of the bond although it's anyone's guess when it ended up becoming a curse. Perhaps from the very start given the cat's words and feelings?

Anyhow, time to hunt down some lunch. I forgot, this weekend's a long weekend. *blink* Shall see, looks like it might rain today. ^___^

Edit: Oh yeah! Next chapter Sept 5, 2006.
Still no mention of the last chapter yet or being at the climax on the scan pages so it's anyone's guess when that'll happen. I'd guess we're going at least into book 23 therefore.

Vol 21 release scheduled for Sept 19

*cry* I worried that they were too low-quality for translation. *snifl*

(You only missed one accent. ^_~ Ichi's very forgiving of boo-boo's.)

I think the seeds of curse were sown when the other animals heard the cat saying (I'm improvising from summaries) that it doesn't insist on things staying as they are. It appears that at the beginning, all the animals felt much as Akito did (at the beginning of the series): no need for change, other people, growth, &c. I've been wondering for awhile now if previous Gods of the curse had been as stifling as Akito. Given this, it seems yes.

I didn't notice that there was a page missing. *pout*

BTW, someone on Suba Furuba said it's continued on Sept. 5, not concluded. Is that what the text says? (Not that I don't trust random stranger, but I trust Shadow more. ^_^)

Unfortunately, the scans are such that I'm going to give myself wrinkles squinting at some of the lines. >_<;;

(You only missed one accent. ^_~ Ichi's very forgiving of boo-boo's.)

^^;; I was wondering if you were able to input accented characters easily when writing in French. (You use a Mac though, is that right?) If I used a desktop, it would probably be possible, but I haven't found an easy way to type accented characters on my laptop. :/

I'm wondering if the cat's wish for God is part of what caused the Sohmas to be possessed by the 12shi. Not that it had to be the Sohmas in particular, but that the cat's wish to meet God again under the light of the sun among people is what caused the possession. Otherwise, if the animals themselves were to be reborn as animals all the time, that wish might've never truly been possible.

I didn't notice that there was a page missing. *pout*

^^;; It's a "??" moment when reading. One one page, God's writing many many invitations to the animals and on the next, for the first time God laughed out loud. Visually though, both page 6 and 7 have an advertising banner on the left side of the page. Those are always on the outer edge and tells me that they're both left-hand pages.

BTW, someone on Suba Furuba said it's continued on Sept. 5, not concluded. Is that what the text says? (Not that I don't trust random stranger, but I trust Shadow more. ^_^)

^^;; Literally, it says "To be continued in Issue 19, Sept 5 release". So it doesn't say it's not being concluded, but it also doesn't say that the next chapter is the final chapter. Typically, the publishers will literally say when the next chapter is the last, so not having it there is as good as saying that it's not the end. ^_^

Straining your eyes is not authorised. You will cease all such activities immediately. (Bossy much? ~_^)

It's possible to get accented characters, although I don't know about a laptop. On a full keyboard, you use ALT and 3-number combinations from the numeric keypad. There are control characters in html, but for the sake of a sentence or two, it's probably not worth the trouble. Unless you're insanely maniacal about details, like me. *hides*

I've toyed with the idea in my head that the curse is on the animals, not on the Sohmas. It's pretty cruel to think of this family cursed for generations for no reason other than "wrong place, wrong time". Then again, they're quite successful, powerful, and attractive; I wonder if that's a flipside to the curse.

Thanks for clarifying! ^_^ (On Suba Furuba, Selphie's cautioning people not to go all a-squee about another volume, but I just can't stop myself. Even if it's just that 22 is an extra-fat volume, I will be pleased. ^_^)

^^;; I managed to write up what I could without straining the eyes. ^^;

Yeah, I haven't figured out how to write them easily on the lappie. (Alt + numbers) doesn't work. >_<;

^^;; Well, since the next chapter isn't likely to be the last one, it'll most likely go into the next volume now. The one thing we don't want to see is something like what happened with Kouga Yun's Earthian. It took >10 years before the end of that manga got published. >_<;;

Hello!!! Thanks for sharing Fruits Basket summaries
I was wondering about the climax of the story, I think in the latest chapters there was a mention about that, right?? Could you, please comment a little about that, what was it said?
Greetings from Perú (^_^)V

Ale-chan mentioned that on the cover of the last issue, there was a small bubble saying that the Climax was Near. In the chapter scans themselves, there's been no mention of being at the climax yet, so at a guess, we're very close to the end, but not quite there yet. Unfortunately, the cover shot on Hana to Yume's site is too small to see if there might be any such comment on it, and Ale-chan didn't mention anything about this issue's cover. However, all the signs point to not being on the last couple of chapters to the story yet.
