Thoughts On The Latest Episode of Fruits Basket?

Recommended Posts

Today’s the final episode of season 1 and will introduce Isuzu (the horse of the zodiac). There’s also supposed to be an announcement afterwards (hopefully when we can expect season 2)

I'm excited to see Rin. It was her along with Kureno who weren't included in the old anime. And now that we're pretty much caught up with the old one, we can finally expect some of those deeper character developments that blossom in the latter portion of the story. I hope it's not a super long wait for season 2.

So season 2 will be sometime during 2020. That’s a pretty broad window, but still good to know. And as long as they maintain the quality, it’s worth the wait.

As to the episode itself: very appropriate with the various members  of the Soma clan trying to come to terms with their evolving relationships to each other. And it f course Tohru is the catalyst for most of that change. Though it seems certain some of it will be painful. Being unfamiliar with the manga, it’ll all be new to  me.

They also tease the appearance of new characters who seem like will be important

 

the two students who pass Yuki in the hallway and I assume the girl Hiro visits in the hospital is the horse. We also got a glimpse of Shigure and Akito together, which I can’t help but feel uneasy about

Anyway, pretty sure this will be my #2 for the season (8/10)

I’m mostly caught up... one week behind I think now. Has the season finished airing then?

Yes it's concluded. 😔 No more until next year.

Sounds like it will be on Funimation, probably Hulu. Not sure about CR.

Apparently the first three episodes of season 2 will debut in theaters like they did for season 1. Not close enough to me though, so will wait for the streaming premiere the following week.

For anyone interested

I cannot wait til it's out on FUNimation… the wait is killing me.

 

Plus with this quarantine going into effect tomorrow I'll need something to keep me occupied.

God, I’ve missed this show 😂

A largely Yuki centric episode this week though Kyo & Shigure have their moments. Though it’s hard to find Shigure’s antics quite as light hearted after getting a glimpse of where his loyalties lie. Looks like Yuki will have his hands full with his new subordinates. Despite the. comical aspects of their personalities, seems like they also have some deep rooted psychological issues, but what else is new. Good to see Uo still has her “underlings”. Still can’t feel much empathy for Yuki’s #1 fan, though she grudgingly admits Tohru has had a positive influence on him. Oh, and the new OP/ED are top notch again too.

Where everybody at?! Gonna get real boring real fast if I’m the only one talking 🤣

Loved this week’s episode, especially Shisho not pulling any punches in his talk with Kyo’s “father”

not really deserving of the title since as Shisho pointed out, he’s never once acted like a parent

Got lots of other observations, but would rather hear what some other people think.

I NEARLY forgot about the 2nd season starting already. Dude, I am so STOKED for this season. I might give season 1 a rewatch though!

I admit I forgot about this season airing already. I just randomly checked on FUNimation to see if it was on and I was like "Oh yeah!"

I've been a bit behind on the series lately. So what day exactly airs each new episode? I always seem to be an episode or two late because I keep forgetting it's back on. 😅

S2, episode 3

Oh gawd, this scene 🤣😂🤣

As over the top as Ayame is , it’s even worse when Shigure is around to egg him on. Kyo may be my favorite Sohma, but Hatori is a close 2nd for being able to keep them even remotely in line :P

Just watched episode 5 & oh boy...this could be terrible. Akito, what can I even say? What an evil control freak. Every time her name even comes up it just makes my skin crawl. 

And my dude Hatsuharu steals more of my heart each time I see him. What a well done character! :)

The second season so far really seems to be emphasizing how she is the root of all the dysfunction in the Sohma clan. Pretty certain it’s building to something really awful. Not sure of her exact motives, but my impression at the monent is that it’s primarily spite (the need to make everyone as miserably unhappy as she is).

As far as Kureno, he better not try to take advantage of Uo. She’s my favorite non-Soma character especially seeing last season how her friendship with Tohru & her mom changed her in a positive way. Maybe I’m being unfair to him since Akito apparently treats him as her boy toy, but he’s still an adult whereas Uo’s still a teenager.

On a lighter note the earnestness of Hatsuharu’s  narrative contrasted with it’s absurdity was hilarious 🤣  And Uo & Hana will make life absolute hell for anyone who tries to date Tohru (a couple “dads” from hell) 😂

Does anyone know when the next Fruits Baskets episode will air? Just curious because I could of sworn it's been over a week and no new episode yet (or maybe I'm just imagining things).
