  • The story is aboutTohru Honda who Find a DIFFERENT kind of family and learns something special about each one.

    This episode was so funny and sad at the same time!!!! It is when Tohru goes back to leave with her grandfather. While Kyo and Uki are sad they try to find Tohru's house since she left directions. While Uki and Kyo are almost there, Tohru is telling her grandfather how fun she live with Uki and Kyo, and she also feels very accepted like she found a place she belonged in. Suddenly, Uki and Kyo saw haerd everything Tohru said and told her to come back. Tohru had some mixed emotions. SHe told Kyo they she wanted to go back and so they did!!!

  • Tohru almost felt as if she was right at home with the Sohma's.Her grandpa calls and tell her that the house is fixed and she can come.Now Tohru is offically moving back with her grandpa.Leaving the Sohma's forever.But will she ever return?

    This episode was very good and special to me.I mean it seemed that Tohru didn't feel welcome at the home where her grandpa lives.These people except her grandpa of course.They seemed to nosey,I mean they found out that Tohru was living with the Sohma's they already branded her as an bad kid just liked her mother.Who used to be part of the gangster.Tohru was relizing that she was not alone.She than relized that she was home all along with Yuki,Kyo and Shigure.Yeah this was an touching episode.It made me cry that Tohru decided that she will live with the Sohma's.
  • Just when Tohru feels that she has finally found a place where she can settle down, she comes crashing back to reality when she recieves an unexpected phone call.

    The begining of the episode appered to be like a normal one. Tohru is picking out books to help her understand her friends, Yukki and Kyo better. But she recieves a phone call from her grandfather, who informs her that since renovation to her house is complete, she can come and live with him again. That ofcorse means, that she will have to leave the Sohma household. What follows is a memorable episode with comedic and tear-jerking moments.

    I was drawn into the characters and could actually see just how much Tohru meant for Shigure, Yukki and Kyo, and how much they meant to her. They had given her a home and had made her feel like she belonged with them, even though she might have been a rice ball in a fruit basket.

    The outcome of the episode is no surprise at all, but the way it reaches that climax is fantastic and the way the title of "Fruits Basket"is explained, makes it certain, that this is no ordinary anime series.
