My most feared episode has arrived! The time to say goodbye to the first season of Fruits Basket came way too fast but also took forever. Time flies! Let’s see what Tohru, Kyo, and Yuki go through in the last episode, after a very eventful and dark 24th episode.
Japanese Title: もうすぐ夏がやってきます (Mōsugu natsu ga yattekimasu)
Episode 25 – Summer Will Be Here Soon
Kyo came back home and Master just disappeared. Tohru went to send him off and hears about how the two of them came together and that Master is actually like a father to Kyo. Through a misunderstanding and because they were too cautious around each other, they didn’t have a very warm relationship recently but once Kyo catches up to them they are able to solve some of the problems while Tohru is watching over them.
Meanwhile, Yuki is fighting his own insecurities and thoughts and challenges a new lifestyle. As the summer break is getting closer, the Sohmas and Tohru all feel that something is about to change with the end of the summer and Yuki promises to himself that he will gain courage. In the end, we also get to meet Rin – the horse zodiac. A new darkness is waiting for our friends.
Kyo and Master
Why are there so many misunderstandings between them? They love each other so much. How Kyo doesn’t want to cause him problems and then screams that Kazuma is NOT his father and he hears it…? My heart broke. And they only wanted to be each other’s family.
I’ll become worthy of you being my father
Kyo~~! You are so cute! This was a very big highlight of this episode.
Hatsuharu and his arms
It’s summer soon! And Hatsuharu is showing off his arms. And I am dying.
Yuki and his filthy feelings
No, now I am dying. Yuki is killing me. He had so many great sentences and scenes in this episode. First, he says he ‘wants to become someone who can experience his own feelings’. Then he says ‘I hope I’ll gain the courage to tell you’ WHAT DO YOU MEAN, YUKI! DON’T LEAVE ME WITH THAT! THIS SEASON FINALE IS KILLING ME! My heart. <3
He was my highlight because he is my favorite and he was so cute. He needs to be mentioned here!
There are still some zodiacs missing and Rin is one of them! She is the horse.
So I really, really wanted to give this point to Kyo because he has such a cute smile. And is so happy. His time will come, I am sure season two will give us a lot more time with Kyo than with Yuki. However, when it was time for Yuki’s feelings and plans and how he started to show where he improved… He can keep plants alive. He talks to more people. He can tie his own necktie. That’s how he will keep improving. And then he does that kabe-don and teases Tohru and I JUST CAN’T I LOVE YUKI!! Support him forever!!
I will see you all once again for a series review to answer the question who won the most Dokidoki Barometers and give my verdict on this first season. Thank you all for staying with me until the end or even for just reading some of my reviews. It was a lot of fun, even though there wasn’t much to do in this series aside from professing my love to ALL the characters. If you haven’t noticed, this is probably my favorite series of all time. I can say with ease now that the new version only adds to my love and doesn’t take anything from it. See you soon!
