I've seen the whole series, just the anime though. I haven't read the manga, but I've heard that it still continues much further from where the anime left off.
All in all I think the series was really beautiful and touching. biggrin.gif
The idea was great and it had some good themes too. I liked the way the plot progressed, how it ended(although it seemed like there was a lot of unfinished buisness) and wrapped things. It was cute and poignant with a bit of hilarious parts too.The characters were great, individual and interesting. I really liked the cute bishonen look too biggrin.gif Hmm.. yes my favourite is Kyo. He's a cute, hothead with a lot of determination and a good heart, but I really like almost all of the characters. I wish that certain characters had been given more time to be focused on... but it was a fairly short series after all.

I'm a huge Furuba fan and I've read most of the manga and seen the whole series.
It's super seriously cute. Literally. Serious in the parts where you expected it to be and way cute in the rest. ^^ I love the little fights Yuki and Kyo have. My favourite character would definately have to be Hatsuharu. He's sexah awesome but I wish they would have focused more on him and Hiro. I think Hiro is adorable! ^^

The series, as a whole, was short but well made. Most of the characters were very well thought out and the plot was nicely done, aside from the quick cut off. The art was also very good.
Overall, I give the anime a whole 8/10. ^^

I love this series very much, too! happy.gif My favorites are Haru and Shigure, but I like everyone! Okay, except for Rin... I read the manga more than I watch the anime, though.

It may just be me, but did anyone else find the ending of the anime a little (just a little) dragged out..?

I actually loved the ending! I guess it's because it focused mainly on my favourite character... also it was the only "story"(I think) that lasted more than one episode, which gave the possibility to make it more in-depth. I probably loved the end most of all! biggrin.gif

For the ending, they took an event in the manga and made it seems a lot more important than it really was... That's why I don't really like it, even if I really like Kyo... It focused too much on him, and

I wonder what's the real ending's gonna be...

Yeah, I had that feeling too. But I loved it anyway!
Lucky you, you're reading the manga. Is it a lot different?

I like the manga better. The anime stopped at something like the 4-5th book. The manga is longer, so there is more place for characterization (sp?) Characters like Kisa, Ayame, Hiro, Haru and Momiji who are seen only in a few episodes are much more developped. And there's manga-only characters like Kureno who are really great! And everyone's secrets are revealed, even the ones of Shigure and Akito, who were never explained in the anime. And Tohru is more intelligent than they wanted to show in the anime...

Wow! After the 5th book! I figured that they really wouldn't show much... but I was glancing at a few books and thought that the story seemed pretty much the same..
The manga is still ongoing isn't it? I really loved the anime and the manga is usually much better in most cases.. maybe I should check it out more... I've been meaning to for a long time biggrin.gif

You should! And yes, it's still ongoing. There's scanlations, I think, but I don't read them. I only read it when it's published in french. They're at the 11th book, and I can't wait for the 12th! It'll be Ritsu on the cover! happy.gif

11 books in Japan too then?
Yeah, I wouldn't read the scanlations either... It's licensed by Tokyopop anyway..I just checked today that they're in the 7th book. I keep on checking in case I feel like buying... and the further they get the more money I'll have to spend at once if I decided to buy...
