I’d love to try it again and actually wash the leeks and use the correct part of the stalk 🤣

 

That's hilarious! Did you use a recipe last time you made it? If not, I would highly recommend using one next time, lol. I've never made plain leek soup, but I have made potato leek soup many times, which is quite delicious. 

I found a couple of recipe options, if you'd like to look them over:

Episode 3 is awesome. You must watch it now!

So true! There were so many great scenes, but my favorite was when Yuki and Tooru were protecting the base, and then when she was talking to Kyo about umeboshi on the back of onigiri, and how he has one on his back.

Episode 3 is probably one of my favorites because Tohru explains to Kio why he can't see how great he really is. The whole pickled plums on people's backs is awesome.

Finally caught up.

Episode 4 was pretty light as it focused on Kagura paying the Soma's a visit and her way of expressing "affection" for Kyo

 

poor guy, bad enough he gets his ass handed to him by Yulki on a regular basis, but his "fiancee" as well. Not to mention poor Shigure "Why are you people always breaking my house?!"

🤣

By contrast episode 5  started out pretty heavy

 

what with Tohru leaving the Soma household and her relatives being such assholes. Made me want to cheer when Gramps slapped her cousin and reminded them that senile or not it was still HIS house and Tohru didn't have to put up with it if she didn't want to. Things were a bit more comedic watching Kyo's nervous energy & frustration over Tohru leaving and bickering with Yuki over finding her. I did have a problem with the way Kyo physically dragged her away. I understand that's just his lack of tact, but it probably also reinforced her relatives suspicions. Fortunately Yuki showed some restraint in smacking her cousin, and it seems the greater embarrassment was realizing he mistook a guy for a "babe"

🤣. And of course Shigure has to tease them all a bit when they get back.

I was just recently wondering about the series title, so I guess I must've forgot when it was explained in the earlier series. Anyway, even though I do remember there's some sad moments ahead, I'm glad that they're back to being a happy "family" again for now.

I was so sad when Tohru found out her grandpa's house was done and she felt like she had to move back in. Her grandpa's family were jerks and I hate them! Tohru's cousin seems like a pervert with some weird fetish/fantasies. 

I hate to say this but I could actually see her cousin trying something with her in the future and then blaming it all on Tohru somehow. That's the vibes I get from her cousin... a sick and twisted little pig that needs to be knocked out by Kyo and Yuki. 

I'm so glad that they went back after her. Even though Kyo and Yuki are always stepping on each other's toes (or claws, lol) they will always have each other's backs especially when it comes to helping and saving Tohru. 

Cannot wait til tomorrow now!

My faith in this anime's makeover has skyrocketed as of this week's episode. Why? I'm not a huge fan of fillers, and I explicitly remember the 2001 anime turning this entire episode into an entertaining but rather pointless one. Bravo, Furuba 2019 team. You're making this long-time fan proud. 

And now, for one (super minor) complaint, and one praise.

LATE MANGA SPOILERS BELOW

On Momiji:

 

As far as his VA goes, I am intrigued to find out if his female VA will alter her voice a bit later on for when he inevitably pulls the ol' Matthew Lewis on us. Maybe this isn't even a legitimate complaint, since at this point in time the VA does suit the character.

On Akito:

 

I'm so relieved they didn't do the opposite with Akito. That the original anime just decided "Screw it, we're not going to run long enough to reveal Akito's little secret. Just make him a man." I love her voice. I can't wait to see more Akito.

Dude, I almost forgot about the episode with Yuki dressed as a girl, lol. And I forgot how cute Momiji was. Honestly, even though he could get all of those in the Zodiac curse caught I love how carefree he is. Besides Shigure, he's one of my favorite characters.

Hatori’s backstory is so sad, and Akito seems like a selfish b****.  Even after getting a glimpse of how dysfunctional the Soma household is, Tohru retains her positive attitude and gives hope and comfort to those around her. Took some time to make the connection between Hatori’s cursed form and

the Dragon of the Chinese Zodiac

 Didn’t comment on the previous week’s episode, but Tohru has a couple of true friends, concerned with her wellbeing but also trusting her judgement and supporting her decisions. Would’ve liked to see what they would’ve done to her cousin & aunt

I nearly forgotten about Hatori and since I haven't actually read the manga of this series yet I wasn't sure if Hatori's past was gonna be in this one. So glad it was. Even though it was sad it still had some humourous moments.

The New Years celebration episode was heartwrenching as heck. I like how Kyo and Yuki treat Tohru's word as law. I felt like Tohru was feeling left out but didn't want to say anything because it would interfere with her friend's plans. However when Yuki and Kyo turned around and went back it nearly made me cry seeing them burst through Shigure's house to be with Tohru. 😭😭

At the start of the ep Kyo comments that Tohru seems to look at the world differently than most people, but as the episode progresses he & Yuki come to realize that at least part of it is just putting on a brave face so others don’t worry. And just like the episode where she returned to her grandfather’s house, the point is made that concepts like “family” and “home” aren’t just matters of bloodline. And I can certainly attest to the fact that holidays aren’t the same since both my parents passed. Have to believe there will be repercussions for Yuki snubbing Akito, but as Shigure notes, it’s her own fault for the hateful way she treats everyone.

On a completely different note, damm Hanajma is sexy, but Uo’s not bad either.

Unfortunately it sounds like this will affect the streaming schedule as well

https://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2019/05/30/next-two-fruits-basket-episodes-delayed-due-to-french-open

Bummer. At least in my case, I'll be travelling a bit during that time anyway, so I won't be waiting around for it. It's not that big of a delay, and there's always more anime to see in the meantime.

Episode 9 caught me by surprise. First because I expected it to be delayed because of the article I posted earlier, but also because a completely different tone than the episodes up to this point. The emphasis much more on comedy, going into almost slapstick territory, even more than with Kagura. Funniest moment for me had to be

Yuki shoving the leeks in Kyo’s mouth to shut him up

Haru makes a much better sparring partner for Kyo since there temperaments are more similar, at lest in “Dark Haru” mode. Of course the episode can’t be completely without angst

I’m pretty sure it was Akito that grabbed Yuki in the flashback scene and can’t help but wonder what the heck she did to him to traumatize him so. And it’s implied that his poor health also might be related

As much as I like the drama I don’t mind this sort of thing every now and again. And next week’s ep is apparently about Valentines day. Can’t wait.

Found this note on the CR website looks like its delayed by a matter of hours rather than days:

Availability Notes

Due to French Open broadcasts, episode 10 is expected to be delayed by at least 9 hours. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

Wait, wait, wait... the title of episode nine has me majorly confuzzled here. "Yuki Was My First Love" I thought Haru and Yuki's relationship was purely friendship or was I mistaken?? Think I'm gonna have to give this a rewatch, lol.
