The Sohma Curse

  • Trivia

    • In the kitchen, Tohru's shirt color changes from pink to blue.

    • After the incident occurs when Tohru finds out the secret, the whole crew sits at the table. When Shigure was saying to Tohru that they must seem pretty strange to them, if you notice, Kyo is missing his bead bracelet. For those who are just starting to watch, it may seem like no big deal. But trust me, it is a VERY big deal.

  • Quotes

    • Yuki: I'll help you, just tell me what to do.
      Shigure: You better not, the closest thing Yuki's seen to a mop is that hair cut of his.

    • Tohru: Yuki, when did you learn to tie a tie?
      Yuki: I guess I've never been good at this sort of things.
      Tohru: Don't feel bad. Nobody's perfect. Good thing you have me here.
      Akito: You're a freak. They wouldn't come near you; they'd hate you.
      Yuki: Miss Honda, it really didn't bother you to see…
      Tohru: Oh, don't worry. I closed my eyes this time.
      Yuki: No, I didn't mean that.

    • Tohru: Call a doctor, or a vet, or something! Mr. Postman! It's terrible! You see? They're animals!
      Mailman: Well, uh, yes, they certainly are. Here's your mail.
      Tohru: No, no, we've got to do something!
      (Shigure in dog form grabs the letter.)
      Mailman: I wish my dog was as smart. Good day!

    • Yuki: Don't you dare try to blame this on us, you stupid cat.
      Kyo: Go ahead, say that again!
      Yuki: Stupid. Cat.
      Kyo: Why you little...!

    • Shigure: Yuki, try not to destroy the house. OK?

    • (Shigure and Tohru are talking about Tohru wanting to be a cat before.)
      Shigure: Yes it's hard to believe, I know and I agree the phrase "cat like reflexes" doesn't really apply to him (Kyo), the way he let you fall on him like that. But he is a cat, albeit clumsier then most. Surprising really, considering the amount of martial arts training he's had. I'm sure he'd tell you the same thing himself if he wasn't so busy brooding like a child…
      Kyo: Errah! Will you shut up?! I told you it's not my fault!

    • Tohru (thinking): I don't really like the idea of losing my memory, and I don't want to forget meeting Yuki. But he's done so much for me without asking anything in return, so I guess if that's what I have to do..
      Tohru (to Yuki): You can erase my memory, but afterwards, promise you'll still be my friend?

    • (Flashback of Yuki when he's younger)
      Yuki: Akito, am I really that strange? Am I so strange that we have to hide it from everyone?
      Akito: (voice) Hmph.. yes, you are that strange. A human that turns into a rat? What do you think they would do if they knew? Really, you're a freak. They wouldn't come near you, they'd HATE you.

  • Notes

    • Anime/Manga difference: When Tohru asks for help.

      Anime: She is talking to a mail man. Shigure, in dog form, picks up the mail with his mouth.

      Manga: She is talking to a food delivery boy. Shigure, in dog form, holds in his mouth some money.
