1999 first published in Japan, but published in comic form in 1998, and this TokyoPop translation from 2004 
Natsuki Takaya
Fruits Basket, Volume 2
Bought newish for $9.99
Worn paperback

This time Tohru meets Momiji (rabbit) and Hatori (seahorse, rather than a dragon), and there's quite a bit of back story on the latter.  Also, her friends Hana and Uo invites themselves to a sleepover, but the Sohma's secret isn't revealed to them.  Tohru tells a story that didn't make the anime, about a boy in a cap leading her home when she was lost.

This is about equal to the first volume and is the first to include fan-art and even fan-haikus.
