This episode was so nostalgic! Whilst watching it, I was transported back to the time when I was watching the original series for the first time. It's safe to say I had a massive smile on my face for the whole 24 minutes. As I was watching, I could remember very easily the 2001 version's series of events. Every time Yuki kicked Kyo, every time Kyo acted like the absolute tsundere he is, I was giggling. Apparently, my love for a good old shoujo anime hasn't disappeared at all.
Fruits Basket, the original 2001 series, was one of the first anime I watched all those years ago when I was diving into the world of anime for the first time. Because of that, the series has a special place in my heart. I wanted to do something special to mark the new adaptation (and to basically just gush about the show each week), so I've decided to make the 2019 series the first anime series that I do weekly episodic reviews for!
It's been an entire year since I've last done a "What am I watching?" post and that's because I've been avoiding seasonal anime so I could catch up on my backlog a little bit better. This all changed with The Promised Neverland, though and, admittedly, having something to look forward to watching every week really did wonders for my mood as well, as trivial as that sounds, so I've decided to get back into the swing of seasonal anime! Woo!
