Funimation also posted a message from creator Natsuki Takaya, in which she acknowledged that even she had forgotten details she wrote over a decade ago. As a result, she found herself crying when reliving the story to approve the upcoming season. She concluded, "The characters in the second season have lost their way, but it's because they are lost that they can make the most out of it and struggle to search for the right path. I hope everyone will watch over them until they find their way. It would give me the utmost joy if everyone will love them as they search. I look forward to watching as a viewer myself."

First episode is up

This was a fun way for Fruits Basket to return. Yuki's fan club (especially Makoto) never ceases to amuse me. The recap was a short sweet overview that reminded us where we are now. The OP song shows some off some new characters there too. I'm really excited to see what else this season has to show tbh.

BD/DVD listing shows 6 disks so expecting this to be another 2-cour, perhaps 25 episodes again.

Wandering Soul 2020-04-06 14:55

The second season starts with an episode focused on Motoko. Can't really say I care much for her, but she can be funny and she did get some character development.

Kanon 2020-04-06 18:48

Kind of odd to start with a story like this. I can't say I enjoyed it much, but I am interested in the vice president and the treasurer.

Master_Yoma 2020-04-06 20:58

Well its back and starting off again with Motoko again

Kyo really needs to stop being kicked outside by Yuki

Frontier 2020-04-06 23:10

I wasn't expecting an episode focused on the Yuki fanclub, although I find Motoko endearing in some respects, but all in all it was a pleasant and fun return for Fruits Basket :D.

The new Opening is yet another pleasant and peaceful theme, and shows off the main cast along with Rin and her horse form. Which really does look like her as a horse :p.

Shigure is actively rooting for a love triangle with Tohru, although he's losing all faith in Kyo's chances :heh:.

I'm glad Uotani managed to set those delinquent girls straight. Now they're basically her fangirls :nod:.

Yuki sure has an interesting bunch to look forward to working with. A treasurer who can't seem to get organized and is as afraid of contact as a Sohma with the opposite sex and a vice-president who is lazy, a tease, and only joined because he thought it would sound like he's in a Sentai :eyespin:.

Hey, Yuki finally has someone he really dislikes other then Kyo! And he can't beat Manabe up for it, either. Although he seemed to learn to appreciate someone who won't put up airs with him ;).

I love how Motoko acts like this noble, aristocratic, high school girl when she really lives in the upper floor above her family's store where she argues rowdily with her plain mother :p.

I know it was the moment Motoko fell in love with Yuki, but calling him "beautiful" probably had the exact opposite effect she was going for :uhoh:.

At least Motoko has enough self-awareness to dislike how hostile she can be to other women because of her feelings for Yuki, and what a poor person it makes her, and that led her to a genuine moment with Yuki in the end :).

The new Ending feels like the sibling to the previous, showing off the Zodiac as they head off to the banquet in a soothing low-key song. I guess it spoils who the Rooster is if you look closely enough, as well as shows what Hattori would've looked like if he was an actual dragon. Poor Kyo is left out still as The Cat, but at least they were all together in the end :cool:.

MeoTwister5 2020-04-09 06:52

At this point I'm convinced that 95% of the school's student body are out of their goddamned minds.

Blaat 2020-04-13 15:09

Episode 2 was a great episode, a much better way to start the season than the first episode.

Also Tohru's nose-blowing sound is ridiculous cute.

Wandering Soul 2020-04-13 16:16

The first episode worked if you were looking for a nice humorous reintroduction. This worked as a more character focused reintroduction, which I prefer.

This episode had some pretty good moments. Kyo and Thoru's talk shows how the two are really willing to let down their walls around one another. Seeing Kyo's true form was a good thing for both of them.

Kazuma claiming Kyo as a his "son" and Shigure actually giving good advice was nice too.

Kanon 2020-04-13 18:36

Now that was a great episode!

It was a small scene but I liked the Uo and Hana bit. Probably because they're my favorite characters. Actually, I liked everything about this episode. Tohru and Kyo being closer than ever, Shisho confronting Kyo's father and vowing to protect Kyo, Tohru sharing her worries about the future, and finally Shigeru dropping some pearl of wisdom and lightening the mood.

Master_Yoma 2020-04-13 20:53

Well finely get to see Kyou's father who a dick Then theres Kazuma who cant do multiple things at once reading a book and cooking he all most burned down his place

Kyou really need to start wearing a motorcycle helmet

Akira Theia 2020-04-13 21:36

This alongside the episode with Kyo's true cursed form have been my favorites episodes so far because TohruxKyo is one of the best written anime/manga pairings I have ever seen. Their cute, sweet moments, their development, how we see them make each other better. It's all perfect. I'm not exaggerating when I say their most meaningful moments never fail to make me tear up.

Here we see that Kyo brings out something in Tohru no one else can, not even Yuki. Normally, Tohru is the one who listens and comforts when someone else is in emotional distress. However, she can't open up about her own problems because that might trouble others. Kyo can tell how she really feels without Tohru saying so and make her drop her 'everything is fine' mask. Both feel like they can be free to be themselves around each other and be each other's emotional support, not just one way around.

Kyo's biological dad is one of the most disgusting parents in this series. There's only a pair more that will appear later that compare to him in the human garbage department. So awesome to see Kyo's real dad tell me off.

Frontier 2020-04-13 23:03

There is little doubt in my mind that if Hanajima were boy she would for sure seriously try to marry Tohru :p.

Hey, I wouldn't knock Uotani's chances of getting married first. It worked out well for Kyoko ;).

Nothing like bringing a girl back home so that your adoptive family can reveal all your most embarrassing moments to said girl :heh:.

I can never get enough of Kyo and Tohru! They're just so adorable together, and they really bring out the best emotions in each other :D.

Yeah, I kind of preferred Kazuma with longer hair too. It really added to his zen master character :).

We finally properly meet Kyo's biological father and he's a real piece of work. He kind of looks like Kyo with black hair but while Kyo has all his problems his dad has apparently been living it up in this huge house full of vintage records, all the while worried about what Kyo will get up to out of a misplaced sense of hatred and fear after what happened to Kyo's mom. Thankfully Kyo's real father was there to put him in his place :cool:.

Nothing like having to make a mandatory declaration of your future career to get you really concerned about the future, and nowhere is that more complicated then for the Sohma's. Even aside from Kyo, who probably has the worst fate of the lot in store if Akito has his way, we have Tohru concerned about whether she will be able to make it in the real world :upset:.

Luckily Shigure is there to show that even he can offer proper advice once in a while :cool:.

frubam 2020-04-14 15:41

I liked this episode much better than the first one(that annoying group was... well, annoying =01). Really felt like Kyo was extremely relaxed around Tohru, similar to how he acts around Kazuma. It was very adorable =03.

Frontier 2020-04-20 14:22

Yuki and Ayame's mom is a Sayaka Ohara-voiced beauty? If she wasn't such a cold woman using her son as a tool that would be pretty awesome :eyespin:.

Of course someone as flamboyant as Ayame would run a costume shop. And look good in drag :heh:.

Mine! She appeared in the second Opening with Ayame but I guess they had to structure it so she would appear now. It's always nice to hear Yuka Iguchi and she did a good job conveying Mine as this spirited young woman who can keep up with Ayame and seems to really get him and his deeper motivations. Not to mention she looks really cute in a maid outfit ;).

I'm kind of surprised neither Tohru or Yuki found it odd that Ayame was working with a woman who doesn't even seem to be a Sohma. Then again, it is Ayame :eyespin:.

We get more into the hidden sadness and regret that Ayame feels towards Yuki that he hides beneath his smile and dazzling personality. Feelings of guilt over using Yuki's status to get through life while utterly ignoring how badly the Sohma's were treating him, and only really realizing how much he screwed up his younger brother when Yuki was almost too far gone. It seems like meeting Mine really helped Ayame come to terms both with himself and with how he failed Yuki. But Ayame's doing his level, if overreactive, best to make up for it and make sure Yuki knows that he is loved and not alone in this world, and he shouldn't feel beholden to their parents or the curse :).

Sometimes brothers can come together over how different they are from each other, and Yuki and Ayame are slowly but surely getting a better understanding of each other even when Ayame continues to drive Yuki nuts. But I think Yuki's getting more and more used to his older brother :cool:.

I can't deny that with Tohru's looks it would be a waste not to dress her up. She looked absolutely gorgeous in that elegant white dress. If only Kyo had gotten to see her :D.

I'm not sure how to take Ayame. At first he feels nothing for Yuki so he ignores him, then he "loves" Yuki so he inserts himself in Yuki's life at a time and in a manner he's not wanted. Ayame's really all about Ayame's convenience. For all that present day's Ayame regrets past Ayame's (in)action, has he really changed?

SeijiSensei 2020-04-20 17:56

Ayame's teasing of Yuki about having feelings for Tohru is especially cruel. Surely Ayame knows what stands in the way of a romance between a Sohma and a human.

That he's working in close proximity with someone of the opposite sex who might not be in the know.

I think Ayame's just trying to overcompensate for the lack of affection and attention he showed Yuki in the past in the most Ayame way possible. Yuki might not like it, but it makes it harder for him to ignore his brother and it's just part of how Ayame is.

Kanon 2020-04-20 18:35

What will make or break Ayame's character is whether or not he'll make a stand against Akito to protect Yuki when the time comes. He's overbearing and selfish even now, but he seems to genuinely regret his past inaction. Do we know what caused him to suddenly care about Yuki? I can't remember if that was covered in S1.

Wandering Soul 2020-04-20 19:21

So far Ayame is genuinely trying to make up for his treatment of Yuki in the past. He overcompens, but he means well. It'll be interesting to see how he addresses their parents and Akito.

My takeaway from the flash of him cradling his head on Mine's lap was that meeting her changed his outlook on things. She seems to get him in a way others don't.

Master_Yoma 2020-04-20 20:55

Well Ayame is back and still as wacky as ever but its good to see Kuramae in all her crazy

Tooru looks cute in gothic white

Kanon 2020-04-27 17:03

Rin was finally introduced, though we still don't know much about her personality. I like her design at least. I'd say chances are pretty high she broke up with Haru because Akito found out about their relationship.

I liked that they're showing Kyo feels guilty for hurting Tohru. I can't remember if he's properly apologized or not.

Wandering Soul 2020-04-27 19:28

It's only natural Kyo would feel guilty about hurting Tohru. Tohru isn't the type to hold a grudge, but that may make Kyo feel even guiltier.

Master_Yoma 2020-04-27 20:49

Well you think that Haru would of picked a better time to lose it instead of in the classroom

Frontier 2020-04-27 23:13

We finally get to see Haru and Rin's relationship, an actual full-blown relationship between members of the zodiac. I may be mis-remembering the manga but I recall that Haru had his breakdown over getting dumped long before they confirmed that said girl who broke up with him was Rin, so it seems like they're revealing that early as they also start building up Rin and what her plans are a fair bit earlier. I can't wait for the show to dive more into Rin and her relationship with Haru :D.

Poor Kyo. His feelings for Tohru are so obvious that it's just become another thing for people to needle him about :heh:.

Shiraki-sensei for the save ;).

Yuki has changed so much that now he's actively going out of his way to support and help those closest to him when they're at their lowest :).

Man, Yuki is so traumatized that just being inches away from the Sohma compound is enough to make him nauseous :uhoh:

Kyo knocking Tohru away to that extent was anime-only, so it's nice to see them follow that up instead of forgetting about it by comparing it to Dark Haru's rampage and that Kyo feels guilty about it :upset:.

Haru doing the most logical thing to do after a breakup and getting suspended from school...just read and play video games all day. I love how his party is named after him, Kyo, and Yuki :p.

Goblin Slayer is Kureno.

Wandering Soul 2020-05-04 16:45

It was obvious that Kureno was part of the Soma family, but he seems especially close to Akito and considering he has never experience the outside world much, Akito has a good grip on him. It looks like Uotani and Kureno is another relationship that Akito will prove an obstacle to.

Kanon 2020-05-04 18:38

Cool, even Uo-chan is getting her own romance. Her love interest being one of the Zodiacs is beyond contrived though, but it will allow her and Hana to get in on the Soma's secret and get more involved with the main story so I can't complain too much.

Kinda weird they didn't follow up on last week's ending.

Frontier 2020-05-04 22:42

Wouldn't you know it, all that talk about Uotani's possible marriage and she has a fateful encounter with a gorgeous gentleman at work. Good job girl ;).

Kureno's voice isn't what I imagined, even with Umehara playing him, but I think it captures his character quite well. It's just amazing to finally see him both animated and voiced :D.

Hatsuharu unknowingly showing off for the ladies :cool:.

Poor Tohru gets Momiji-pressured into a haunted house and she ends up a laughing/crying mess and bashing her head three times :uhoh:.

Haru should be a writer if he could come up with that well-developed and sentimental backstory on the spur of the moment. A little too committed to it, though :eyespin:.

It's not often I see someone comment on how absurdly attractive the main cast of an anime is :heh:.

Man, Kureno sure knows how to leave a girl waiting. Caressing her face like that and posing for a kiss only to walk away? Sure she's underage and you're almost 10 years older (and potentially a member of the zodiac), but I don't think she would've minded :innocent:.

Yeah, Uotani and Hanajima are totally the type of gal pals who would force themselves into your first date. I pity Tohru's future boyfriend :twitch:.

Uotani unknowingly falling for a Sohma, which never ends well. Not to mention one that's fairly close to Akito. Uotani's found her first love, and someone who is utterly enamored with her smile, and I can't help but feel it's a love likely to be fraught with difficulty :upset:.
