Fruits Basket Vol. 6 by Natsuki Takaya

Main Character: Sweet, optimistic Tohru Honda, and friends
Location: Japan
Time period: Contemporary
Genre: YA Manga, Fantasy

Kyo's mentor, Shishou, comes for a visit. As a test, he removes the protective bracelet that Kyo wears. This removes Kyo's control and he transforms into a hideous, mishapen beast. This is one of the aspects of being possessed by the cat spirit. Tohru sees him in this form, but she stays with him, trying to ease his pain. He lashes out at her, cutting her with his claw, but still she will not abandon him. Slowly, her presence calms him and he goes back to his human form. We also learn that Kyo has been told his mother killed herself because she could not bear his being a monster. Poor Kyo.

Tohru accompanies Yuki on a visit to Ayame's store and has fun dressing up in the costumes.
