HI VY-GUY!

ooh ooh! Another random scenerio would be

Momiji
Hanajima
Ritsu

wow, I can just picture a whole scene with them all going crazy while Hana's just like "........."

XD

^And add Ritsu's mom xD

I have a question..why is Rin called Isuzu, and Rin?

The Red Butterfly
16th June 2006, 8:43 PM
Isuzu is her real name but Rin is her nickname!!! Kinda like HatsuHaru is also haru or momitchi is momiji.

Staryu
16th June 2006, 11:34 PM
Yeah, but how do you get Rin out of Isuzu xD?

Minami Itsuki
16th June 2006, 11:46 PM
She is called Rin because 'Isuzu', when written as two Kanji characters, it means 'Dependable Bell', which many consider to represent her personality and appearance quite well. Several members of the family refer to her as "Rin" because it translates to 'small bell' in Japanese and 'rin' resembles the sound a small bell makes.

^ Wikipedia knows all. XDD

The Red Butterfly
17th June 2006, 5:24 PM
Thank you Vy Low and yes....wiwkipedia does know all XD I really would like to see Ritzu again, and show him with Mitchan, they are too adorabley perfect for echother ;;

Staryu
17th June 2006, 5:32 PM
I think it's spelled Ritsu, right?

I prefer the name Rin over Isuzu, you?

The Red Butterfly
17th June 2006, 8:29 PM
I think both suit her very well, but Rin's a pretier name (in my opinion) so I like that name better as well.

Staryu
18th June 2006, 3:16 AM
Today, I saw a car called Isuzu! xD..but anyways..new sig. Hiro! Yeah, only I can't read what he's saying.

Mysteria Pearl
18th June 2006, 3:19 AM
Isuzu is her real name but Rin is her nickname!!! Kinda like HatsuHaru is also haru or momitchi is momiji.

Momiji is Momiji. "Momitchi" is basically the pronunciation or a pet-nick-name, like a caring one.

oh my gosh, I just noticed that Isuzu is the name of a car brand!!! (Wow, I'm kinda slow!!! XD )

I like the name Isuzu best. It's kind of strange to wonder how anybody got Rin out of Isuzu. 0_o XD

~ Mysteria Pearl ~

Staryu
18th June 2006, 3:23 AM
Well, if you read above, Rin is the sound a small bell makes, and Isuzu is the sound a big bell [i guess] makes.

Mysteria Pearl
18th June 2006, 3:31 AM
I waqs being sarchastic. (SP!???) Anyway. *coughawkwardcough*

there's so many R_n names! XD Rin, Ren, Ran, Run, Ron, Ryn (yes, I've heard it before!)

gosh!!!

~ Mysteria Pearl ~

Staryu
18th June 2006, 3:37 AM
*sweatdrop* Ehh? I knew that!

I've noticed that in mangas/anim's there are a lot of chars that start with the letter K. And R, but not so much.

Kisa
Kagura
Kana
Kureno
Kyo
Kimi [I guess?]

In Furuba alone!

Mysteria Pearl
18th June 2006, 3:42 AM
remember Kyoko and Katsuya XD

there are alot of K names!!!

Staryu
18th June 2006, 4:11 AM
I don't know who Katsuya is xD..? But then again I just read a whole chapter and don't know what it was about after I read it.

It was about Hatori, Shigure, Kana and some other girl.

Mysteria Pearl
18th June 2006, 4:58 AM
Katsuya is Tohru's father, duh. XD

do you mean Mayuko?

Staryu
18th June 2006, 5:32 PM
I haven't met Tohru's dad, yet, I think o.o

I bought the whole anime set yesterday online ^__^

Mysteria Pearl
18th June 2006, 9:48 PM
Tohru's dad isn't really in the anime XD much.

Staryu
18th June 2006, 10:31 PM
I know..xD..i was just bringing up that I bought it.

I don't think I've read him, is what I'm saying..when does he come up, if you remember?

The Red Butterfly
18th June 2006, 11:01 PM
Yes he comes up later on in the story (through flashbacks though right?) i only have seen him once...er twice in the manga. Also I didnt kow Momitchi was a caring name XDD my bad

Mysteria Pearl
18th June 2006, 11:53 PM
he comes back up later through Tohru's flashbacks of how her dad got a cold and died in his office and how, although her mom thought she didn't know, Kyoko almost killed herself, but when remembering Tohru, she stopped herself. Kyo also reveals that he remembers, when talking to Kyoko, that he knows about Katsuya.

yeah, Momiji is just Momiji, maybe Shigure has a lisp XD

~ MP ~

The Red Butterfly
19th June 2006, 12:58 AM
ooooooh, so baisically Kyo already knows about the in-laws and has met one of them XDD and poor Kyoko, luckily she rememberd Tohru and how did Tohru find out?

Staryu
19th June 2006, 1:00 AM
Eep. So I should probably change my siggy to Momiji..Momitchi sounds cuter, though.

brainwhiz21
19th June 2006, 1:42 AM
is momiji pronounced mom-E-G-E or momitchi

Staryu
19th June 2006, 2:00 AM
Mom-Ee-Jee. Momitchi is just a pet name or something..people above were talking about it.

Mysteria Pearl
19th June 2006, 5:54 AM
it's pronounced mo-me-gee

Tohru just knew what her mother was going through, she wasn't oblivious. And yes, Kyo has frequently had discussions with Kyoko (while she was alive that is)

Momitchi is like a pet name, as I said above

The Red Butterfly
19th June 2006, 4:45 PM
Ok this has been bugging me how do you pronounce Kyo because I've been pronounicing it Key-oh, that's thr right way right =/

anyway now that that question is done XDDD I kinda figured the conversations happened while she was alive.

Staryu
19th June 2006, 4:50 PM
It's Key-oh in the anime, but before I watched it, I pronounced it Ki-oh. xD

The Red Butterfly
19th June 2006, 5:11 PM
Oh ok, good, I hoped it wasn't prionounced k-yo XDD he fits Kyo more, well thanks for teling me =D

Kitori_theTeamAquaSuicune
19th June 2006, 5:49 PM
Fruits Basket is a great anime! I loved Kyo and Yuki.
Hatsu Haru and Shigure are cool too!

The Red Butterfly
19th June 2006, 5:59 PM
agreed =D and yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay another fan of both of them (it's very rare to find someone who loves Kyo and Yuki ^^) So have you read the manga?

Mysteria Pearl
19th June 2006, 6:25 PM
I lub Kyo and Yuki. It's just I don't speak of Yui much XD

I feel sorry for those who haven't read the manga. They probably misunderstand EVERYthing. Like the shippings, the plot, the characers, ect.

oy. Poor mistaken individuals. XD

~ MP ~

Staryu
19th June 2006, 11:57 PM
Weee I got a FB poster today xD..It's in the winter, and it has Hari, Momiji & Tohru <3

Mysteria Pearl
20th June 2006, 1:40 AM
oh my gosh! I've been looking for that one forever! Hatori looks so hot in it!!!

XD Congrats!!!

Staryu
20th June 2006, 5:34 AM
It was only 2.99, too! All the anime posters at this store I go to are just 2.99, it was a good one, too!

No, he doesn't. He just looks..regular xD

The Red Butterfly
20th June 2006, 4:45 PM
=O i want a poster with hatori on it ;_______________________________;

but anyway wouldn't the people who have only seen the anime know that Tohru loves Kyo if they ended the series with the 6th book? (this was the part with Kyo's true form correct?)

Staryu
20th June 2006, 5:16 PM
Well, Ritsu isn't in the 6th book, is he? And he's in the anime..

Mysteria Pearl
26th June 2006, 7:19 AM
yeah, the 6th book has Kyo's true form in it. It just kinda bugs me that the anime people *isn't very descriptive right now* didn't wait a little longer so they would actually know about the true shippings. grr. :) anyhow, I WANT A HATORI POSTER!!!

~ MP ~

Minami Itsuki
26th June 2006, 7:25 AM
I actually bought a Furuba wallscroll from our mall~

It has Kagura, Kyo and Tohru in it. ;DD

Never seen the anime sooo~XDD

Mysteria Pearl
26th June 2006, 9:22 AM
you really should buy it!!! (Or rent it, or whatever) :) It's good; not very relevant (SP!?!?!?!) to the books, but good.

I love the voices and colour! They add alot to the less obvious plotlines. Yet the shipping is messed up XD oh well. Still an awesome anime :)

Staryu
26th June 2006, 5:37 PM
EEK! I thought this thread was dead! Phew.

I've started the 11th book, to the part where Rin attacks Tohru, and Akito's being a bit..errr..mean person ^_^

The 11th is my favorite so far. I'm probably going to watch ep 16 in the anime today.

How do you watch the anime? (when it was new for you) All at once, a few a day, or once a week?

I try to watch 1 a week, even though it's haarrrd!

Mysteria Pearl
26th June 2006, 8:53 PM
The 11th book is really good :)

When I was watching it, (well it was me and my friend Irena Mystica) we couldn't stop watching it so we like watched it like all at once!!! I think we went through a few dozen tissue boxes XD

AHHHHH! I LOVE THAT POSTER!!!!! HATORI IS SO HOTTTTTTT!!!!! *falls over anime style XD)

Staryu
26th June 2006, 11:35 PM
Buy it, Buy it!


I think we went through a few dozen tissue boxes XD
I didn't really find much of it sad. But you know what episode I'm on, so maybe I haven't seen some stuff. I didn't really think Momiji's episode was that sad..or Hatori's. Maybe it's cause I'm a guy??

Mysteria Pearl
27th June 2006, 7:23 AM
yeah... I'm just a blubbering girl XD I cry at alot of things XD ask anybody! I cried right from the beginning XD All the sad parts, I have now memorized in both Japanese and English XD

If I don't cry like even one tear, I'll just be depressed all day! XD

~ Mystiera Pearl ~

Staryu
28th June 2006, 12:46 AM
XD. I have a question...why are Kyo's beads black & white in the anime, but red & white (i think, maybe red & black) in the manga?

Oh, and is manga pronounced:

Mahnga or Maynga?

Xiang
28th June 2006, 12:50 AM
Mahnga. The "a" in Japanese is pronounced "ah."
Aren't they white and black in the manga too? o_O

Staryu
28th June 2006, 1:13 AM
Nope, in book 11, Kyo says that:

SPOILER ABOUT THE BEADS:





The red ones are colored by blood and the white ones are human bones.

Mysteria Pearl
28th June 2006, 1:18 AM
yeah. The reason they changed the colours is unknown. Probably becuase when they were making the anime, they just naturally thought that the beads were black and white like good and evil or something 0_o

Drew.
28th June 2006, 2:49 AM
Nope, in book 11, Kyo says that:

SPOILER ABOUT THE BEADS:





The red ones are colored by blood and the white ones are human bones.

Thats true. But they ditched that in the anime, and just made them black and dark purple prayer beads.

Yes...they're dark purple. Not black. I learned from a very obsessed Kyou fan. (Shes in her late twenties and she know soooo much about Furuba. o___o its insane. )

Mysteria Pearl
28th June 2006, 6:07 AM
They're black. I know that from many sources. I am a crazed Kyo fan and nowhere is there concrete evidence that they are purple.

Anyway... I just noticed... wait... I forget...

~ Mysteria Pearl ~

Staryu
28th June 2006, 5:01 PM
Lets not argue over the beads, ok? xDDDDD

But, yes, I do believe they're black..the cosplay beads are black, not purple.

The Red Butterfly
28th June 2006, 6:32 PM
The whole bead thing scared me *blood and bone=not cool* but at least Kyo is a bit hesitant about beileveing that^^

Also Hello Drew^^ I see you a lot at Pc *didin't know you liked Fruits Basket*

anyway I just realized in Volume 11 they bring up Ren-san OoI miss out on a lot..poor Akito Shigure is so mean ;;

Staryu
28th June 2006, 6:57 PM
I think it's cool that they're made of blood & bones, it makes them more special than regular plastic...i'd be proud if I had them xD

Xiang
29th June 2006, 12:25 AM
It'd be cool, but the blood and bone would have to come from something, symbolizing death or torture or something like that x_X It sorta suits Kyo, but people bug him enough

Staryu
29th June 2006, 12:56 AM
So? It's one of a kind! I was gonna say he could sell it..but yeah..xD Kinda ruin his life..but he'd be rich! XD

29th June 2006, 5:36 AM
The manga is OK. I thought it was like, the best thing ever until I saw the anime though. The anime, in my opinion, is SOOO much better! The last couple of episodes are the best though. They're soooo dramatic! And I also really enjoyed the New Years one, lol that house was like CHAOS in the morning!

*twitch* *cough* *almost exploding* I will not be rude. *persistant* I will definately not be. Not working.


How the *bleep* is the anime better? It leaves so many loose ends!
strange way to put it (not really strange... I'm just not very descriptive @ the moment XD) but for some people, I guess it may be easier to understand or something. Seeing as I've read up to chapter 129, I consider the manga to be better; but that's because it's the original version, created by the actual manga-ka, Natsuki Takaya-sama. The Director, in my opinion, just didn't understand some VITAL parts, but we've gone over that againa nd again and AGAIN!!!

as for the bone thingy... If I had to wear a bracelet made out of human bones... I'd get sick to my stomach or something... eew... (If you think about it, Tohru's kinda brave even to touch them... the beads, that is XD) And think of having to wear them... every day... just reminding you of an unjust punishment you did absolutely nothing to deserve. *cries*

Anyhoo,

Hey, everyone. I'm back! ;o And I'll try to make my posts longer, better, etc. So, what did I miss?

Anyways, I've heard somewhere on Youtube that there are "bonus episodes" of Fruits Basket. And the only way to watch them is to buy the DVDs. They said the extra episodes were added onto the 4th DVD along with the last few regular episodes. It sounds fake to me... o_o;

The Red Butterfly
30th June 2006, 5:13 PM
Eternity Absol =D *hugs* god to have you back^^

anyway I havent seen the anime so I wouldn't know but an extra episode would be nice^^ To catch you up weve been talking about the beads and stuff that happens and stuff like that XD

Staryu
30th June 2006, 5:43 PM
having to wear them... every day
Yeah, but they're COOL! Everyone would like them ^_^..I wonder how he does gym without taking them off?


The anime, in my opinion, is SOOO much better!
You're kidding, right?


It sounds fake to me... o_o;

Me too, and I'm almost sure it is. I have the set of 3 discs (if you buy the set, they combine them, so there's only 3 discs)..and I haven't gotten to the 3rd one, but on the back, it says episodes 1-26.

Mysteria Pearl
30th June 2006, 8:13 PM
no bonus epi. simple as that. yay.


Yeah, but they're COOL! Everyone would like them ^_^..I wonder how he does gym without taking them off?

0_o EEWW! *girliness showing* ICKY!!! HUMAN BONES! *faint*

*thinking of Kyo @ the dojo / gym XD*

I wonder if he has a tan-line from the bracelet XD that would be great! XD

Oh well~It's REALLY cool though. XDD

30th June 2006, 8:25 PM
Oh, yeah... Those beads Kyo always wears are made of human bones! xD I wonder how they managed to get them? Either way, I think it's kinda cool. ;o Woah, we could have bought a bracelet like that?! If only I had seen it! ;_; How much did the winner pay?

Yeah, people on YouTube are always saying they think there's going to be a season 2 of Fruits Basket. I believed that once, too, but it's been way too long for a new season. D: Oh well. But they were saying (at least 3 people) that the extra episodes were an addition to whatever else was on the 4th DVD. Too bad it's probably a fake. :/ Extra episodes would have been great.

Mysteria Pearl
30th June 2006, 8:42 PM
where have you been? XD human bones. kill. rip out bones. human cat bones. carve them into beads. out on string. wrap around wrist. bye-bye cat looking thing. party.

hahaha... new... season. That's funny XD yeah right. I'd like it if they didn't mess up the shippings again. muahaha... the voice acotrs who said they think Yuki and Tohru are "forever" (blech) are going to feel really stupid when they're reading through the higher 120's (chapters) and when they read that Yuki only thinks of her as a mom... muahaha! XD

I would love to get one of those bracelet things, but I hope the people selling them on eBay don't have rediculous prices... Still, I must get more Fruits Basket stuff! <3
Haha, yeah I saw on some websites that Yuki said she was only like a motherly figure to him. All the Yuki x Tohru shippers are gonna be so mad if they don't already know.

The manga is definitely better than the anime. Enough said. o_o;

Mysteria Pearl
30th June 2006, 9:03 PM
yeah.... *evil laugh* muahahahaha! It's true

Quote: (these aren't the exact works; yeah right. like I'd have them memorized? But they're accurate)
"So what do you think of Tohru"

"...Mother..."

"Eew! like--"

"No. She's comforting... like a motherly figure..." I don't exactally remember what they said, but that's basically it. yay.

They are gonna me so mad XD

Staryu
30th June 2006, 9:05 PM
No, I wish. It'd be cool! But it'd probably haunt me. Smells like moss? XD..better than rotting bones.

Eternity Absol
30th June 2006, 9:06 PM
Hehe! x) Tohru x Kyo is what they should really be supporting if they want to see anything happen! Besides, even in the mangas released in America Kyo says he loves her.

What do you mean by those Catacombs, anyways? Is it in the later Furuba manga? o_o;

Mysteria Pearl
30th June 2006, 9:17 PM
no... I just hate them... eew... remember... when in Catacombes, breathe through your ears XD

totally! and Yukiru fans will be SO dissapointed XD Yeah... the English isn't very far along yet XD

Eternity Absol
30th June 2006, 9:23 PM
Grr. I know! TokyoPop needs to translate and release the rest of the manga NOW! :x It's been taking forever, and I wouldn't be surprised if the people working there are laughing at us as we complain. D:
Once, at the bookstore, this lady said she loved Fruits Basket. I was buying some, and she was the one at the cashier. Anyways, I asked her if it was really true if Akito was a girl, and she said no (I knew better). She said she thought Akito was just a girly man! xD

Mysteria Pearl
30th June 2006, 9:27 PM
haha. Some people are kinda.... naive XD I'm so glad I can read the original version XD Or else, my mind would like explode XD

Eternity Absol
30th June 2006, 9:31 PM
Lucky you! I so wish I could read and speak Japanese, but it seems so hard... Anyways, my Grandma is going to get me this CD that can teach me to speak Japanese! :3 Do you think I'll be able to learn it if I really try? Now, reading Japanese is something totally different. o_o;
I'll bet it's so nice to be able to read Fruits Basket original... Everything probably makes a whole lot more sense.

Purplemoon
1st July 2006, 1:23 AM
Sorry for not posting for a while...
But anyway, Fruits Basket manga is 100000x better than the anime. The anime is not what I would call 'accurate'.
I got a CD like that. But I really suck xDD
Somewheres in town, some places is selling necklaces and braclets similar to Kyo's beads. They have different colours instead of black/red though. Every time I see someone with them I think 'Kyo's beads!'.

Eternity Absol
1st July 2006, 1:25 AM
Haha, I know what you mean! xP Whenever I hear people talking about the Chinese Zodiac, it reminds me instantly of Fruits Basket.

By the way, has anyone noticed that the drawings in volume 1 are very different from the drawings in volume 8, etc.? Isn't that because Takaya got in a car accident or something and broke her drawing arm?

Staryu
1st July 2006, 2:44 AM
She did hurt her hand, but I believe her drawing style has improved, and by volume 8, the characters have changed [developmentally], and grown talled/older looking.

Eternity Absol
1st July 2006, 2:51 AM
Yeah, I know they were supposed to look different as they got older, but her drawing in general was just different. I kinda like it, though. <3 That would be nice if we could all get free drawing lessons from her since we like Fruits Basket so much! xP I can only draw... pretty good, but it just takes me a long time. But who knows if one of us might become a manga-ka of some super-popular series like Furuba? :3

Staryu
1st July 2006, 4:30 AM
Only if we knew Japanese..you guys probably do, but not me ;-;

Yeah, I've tried drawing. Meh. Eh. Feh. The only one that came out good was Rin. But she looked old.

Xiang
1st July 2006, 2:56 PM
But anyway, Fruits Basket manga is 100000x better than the anime.

Honestly, even if I like the manga better, you shouldn't shove that opinion in others' faces like its a fact. People out there can think the opposite of that, but I'd rather it stated like an opinion. -____-

The only path to manga drawing is a bit of background knowledge with the style and practice. Lessons can be counted as practice, but if you rely on books and lessons it won't help as much. I've drawn since I was 4 (at least more than stick figures :p) and started drawing anime style when I was 8.

I can only draw Kisa. Everybody else looks weird after I'm done :p

One of my friends draws anime REALLY well; I'm so jealous of her. As for practicing, I don't think any amount of it could make me good enough as I'd like. It's just too hard to draw! And when I compare my art to the drawings in Fruits Basket, it makes me feel like I'm the worst in the world. xD

That's what I mean. You think it's way too hard and you compare it to a pro. That's the opposite of practice. Well, I'm not going to shove you into a desk and order ten thousand portraits of human Pikachu, its all up to you.

It's alright. xP I don't mind not being an awesome anime drawer. Swordfighting's more my thing. x)

In the back of one of the Fruits Basket mangas, there's a bonus chapter about the Furuba CD. It said you can't get one anymore, which is too bad... What was on it, anyways? ;o Does anyone know?

Lucky you! I so wish I could read and speak Japanese, but it seems so hard... Anyways, my Grandma is going to get me this CD that can teach me to speak Japanese! :3 Do you think I'll be able to learn it if I really try? Now, reading Japanese is something totally different. o_o;
I'll bet it's so nice to be able to read Fruits Basket original... Everything probably makes a whole lot more sense.

You can do anything you set your mind to XD Ooh! A CD! That sounds easier than the way I learned XD It does! But the dubbed version is pretty good too!


But anyway, Fruits Basket manga is 100000x better than the anime. The anime is not what I would call 'accurate'.
I got a CD like that. But I really suck xDD
Somewheres in town, some places is selling necklaces and braclets similar to Kyo's beads. They have different colours instead of black/red though. Every time I see someone with them I think 'Kyo's beads!'.

thank you for agreeing with me!!!
ooh! I wan' one! XD I made a matching "Kyo's necklace and bracelet" for myself and even people who didn't know the anime liked them. XD


Haha, I know what you mean! xP Whenever I hear people talking about the Chinese Zodiac, it reminds me instantly of Fruits Basket.

By the way, has anyone noticed that the drawings in volume 1 are very different from the drawings in volume 8, etc.? Isn't that because Takaya got in a car accident or something and broke her drawing arm?

I get really annoyed at chinese places / resturaunts that don't include the cat XD it's funny

I didn't hear about the car accident bit... although, I did hear something that she just sprained it or something...

Ooh! But, has ayone compared the main characters' faces!? Now they look so-so-so mature!!! Kyo looks SO different (but it doesn't diminish his hottness! XD) And Tohru changes a-lot too!


She did hurt her hand, but I believe her drawing style has improved, and by volume 8, the characters have changed [developmentally], and grown taller/older looking.

yeah... *drooling over the boys looking older*

Hey... I'm female so I have no clue... but soon, shouldn't like the boys need to be shaving and stuff XD ?

XD I love swordfighting! (I stink, though!) They should add Haru trying to swordfight against an angry Hiro. That would be pretty... cute, doncha think? XD

I think they meant that you could NEVER get it in the first place XD

Thanks, Mysteria Pearl! ^_^ Hopefully I can learn to read Japanese, too. One of my friends really wants to learn also, so I guess we would try learning it together. That would make it much more fun! xP
Haha! xP Yeah, those Chinese places must never forget the cat! Besides, I like cats in general. Not as much as dogs and horses, though. Almost all of the characters look taller, too! <3 Kyo still looks just as hawt as ever, though! As for them shaving, I doubt they would show anything about that in the manga! xD
Well, they just said the CD was no longer available after a certain time. I'm guessing that by the time that manga was released, it was already past that certain time. D:

Haha! Poor Yuki! xD I remember once Shigure called him a girly man. That was so funny. Oh, and wouldn't that be sooo funny if someone found Tohru teaching Yuki how to shave his legs?

I was watching the episode where Momiji takes them all to the onsen in Japanese, and I realized how annoying his voice can sound. o_o His voice in English isn't as bad. xP But anyways, Momiji was whining about something Kyo did, and he sounded really annoying (yet he's adorable, as always <3). xD Then Kyo commented on how annoying his voice was. That just made me laugh. xP

Akito wasn't infurriated... just annoyed...

2.2 nanoseconds can make a VERY big difference in a race. j/k, but shame to me if it really does.

But, really, some tiny amount like that probably wouldn't make much difference! xD Hehe, it's really funny when Momiji was sitting on the floor crying that Kyo hit him. I guess he can be annoying, but that doesn't mean Kyo should hit him! *hugs Momiji* Remember when Tohru was hanging up laundry outside and Kyo was talking with her, then Momiji butts in and says "Kyo's got the hots!"
Kyo: I do not!

Yes he does look really young but i loved the picture of him when the president's people were trying to imagine him in the boys uniform and then the picture of him in volume thirteen where he's sitting down without his hat (it was a chapter picture) <3 he looks really good in those^^ Yuki looked very feminine Oo but as Takaya said, if he has girly features, he was drawn for cross-dressing XDD (I re-worded it differently)XD

Eternity Absol

XDD yes that was hilarious and Yuki was peeved (poor guy) but hey haru brought it up so he shouldn't be getting mad at the president (though i never took a liking to him) I like the most recent pack of student council members:
Yuki, Nabe, Machi, Kimi and Nao are hilarious XDD

Eternity Absol
3rd July 2006, 1:17 AM
I remember one time Kyo was saying that Yuki was 'just a regular, boring guy'. I guess he didn't realize that Yuki was listening right behind him or something. Anyways, then Yuki kicked him and said some witty comment (can't remember what it was). Those two will never get along! xD It would be kinda interesting if they both had a major crush on Tohru, and ended up fighting over her! Do they? I've only read up to volume 11, so I wouldn't know.

The Red Butterfly
3rd July 2006, 5:24 PM
NO they don't Yuki falls for someone else and as for him having a crush on her, well he loves her like a mother since his mean mommy was never there for him >: *glares at yuki's mommy*

but Kyo has a huge crush on Tohru and vise-versa^^ and also Yuki and Kyo do respect eachother^^

Why do you need a spare pistol? To kill Akito?! He totally deserves it. -_-; No one in the Zodiac should have to listen to that bratty *******. Oh, and does Hiro ever start to be nicer to Tohru? He usually says something rude or nasty, but I guess he's like that to everyone except for Kisa. xD He's still funny, though. ;P

Just because Akito's mom made her pretend to be a guy her whole life doesn't mean she has to be a total ***** to everyone. :/ Yeah, and Akito's gonna die at some young age for whatever reason, but still...

The Red Butterfly
3rd July 2006, 7:54 PM
Well the only reason why she's so mean to the girls is so that she can have the Sohma men to herself and so she'll have a purpose =D thoguh she does take drastic measures XDD

As for getting married no one does that I know of but it's a happy ending for the couples^^ (or so I've heard Oo)

Eternity Absol
3rd July 2006, 8:04 PM
Well, I'm glad to know there's a happy ending! <3
I'd heard about that... But being a jerk to everyone isn't going to make the Sohma men like her at all! She should try being nice, like Tohru. Oh well; I heard sometime near the end Akito becomes her friend or something.

The Red Butterfly
3rd July 2006, 8:10 PM

So far... he's still chasing after her... Arisa and Uo seem to have accepted it... but they on't do much for the couple. 0_o They did try and reason with Tohru after they found out it wasn't Kyo's fault that she fell off the cliff... but Tohru is being kind of dense... thinking that she's been rejected and all XD

So now he's chasing a just-released-from-the-hospital Tohru, who, BTW, is in tears cuz she still doesn't understand that she's the most precious thing in Kyo's life... XD GYAHH! I hope it ends well!!!!!!

Oh, poor Tohru... She just doesn't understand how much she's loved by Kyo! xD Still, I'm surprised that Kyo waited so long to tell her. o_o He could've at least said he kinda likes her, even though it's way more than that. Meh.
Arisa and Uotani are the same, although I didn't even notice that you said that until Staryu pointed it out. xP
I wish there were more parts in the manga about Kisa and Hiro; you just don't see them much. Gah... This reminds me of when Akito hurt poor Kisa just because Hiro told her that he liked Kisa... Seriously, that's child abuse! :K
Also, I was watching the anime, and it showed Shigure with a pair of pants that he was rubbing back and forth on his back. o_O; What the hell...

Staryu
4th July 2006, 6:39 PM
I think that episode was the one where Saki & Arisa came to sleep-over. Kyo, Yuki & Shigure all transformed at different times, making chaos.

I think Tohru threw Shigure his clothes and he was in he bushes..and then Saki noticed, so..he made something about "a good rubdown" up XD

Eternity Absol
4th July 2006, 6:46 PM
Um, a good rubdown? xD Well, that's just another funny and crazy thing that Shigure would do! Personally, I think the anime episode was better than the manga for when Arisa and Saki spent the night. It was a lot funnier because everyone kept transforming all the time. I also remember when Shigure and Tohru were about to throw some clothes over to Yuki or Kyo, but they both grabbed the same thing at the same time and Shigure ended up throwing Tohru! xP I love that part.

Mysteria Pearl

She just doesn't understand how much she's loved by Kyo! xD Still, I'm surprised that Kyo waited so long to tell her. o_o He could've at least said he kinda likes her, even though it's way more than that

It's not that... after all, he kissed her... but... yeah, she was knocked out. When she awakens, though, i's not that he doesn't bother to tell her... it's that... she doesn't allow him to see her. I guess she feels kinda mortified and, from my perspective, without his love, is going crazy. 0_o sounds strange yet true XD

That was a great epi... It was absolutely embarassing... I even fet embarassed FOR them!!! XD

In Japan, do they call people by their last names a lot?
Oh, I remember seeing a picture of Kyo kissing her... Too bad she wasn't awake! xP How did she fall off the cliff? I feel as if I should know all these things...
I'm not exactly sure what episode this was, but there was a bunch of this type of food in the air (it was all falling) and Yuki (mouse) was there, too (also falling). It was in slow motion, and Tohru was trying to grab Yuki in midair so he wouldn't hit the ground. She was having a hard time finding him since the food was in the way, but eventually she grabbed for him but instead squished food she had accidentally grabbed instead of Yuki. (this must be sooo confusing) Anyways, it was really funny and I wanna see it again! Anyone know what episode that was in?

The Red Butterfly
4th July 2006, 10:36 PM
....I havent seen the anime ;; and YAAAAAAAAAAAY pearls back =D Anyway yes people do get called by their last names a lot in Japan (which is why in the beggining you always hear Yuki call Tohru: Honda-san....actually I don't remember him ever callign her tohru Oo Didn't Haru yell at him about that and say something like, "You can call her Tohru you know?")

I hope all goes well for the precious couple (which i'm sure it will) ^^

I bet it would, but in japan it's commom but I woudn't want to be called Miss-my last name- at all >: but it's ok for Yuki, he's polite =D

but I woudn't want to be called Miss-my last name- at all >:
Me either, except using Mr. of course XD He needs to cut the politeness, I get the feeling that he's letting looser in Book 11. Well, he is. But I don't know if he'll ditch the politeness.

The Red Butterfly
5th July 2006, 1:46 AM
Oh no, Yuki would never and he cuts even more looser later on in the series<3
*is still obseesed with your banner XD* so wait, are you only on book eleven right now or have your read farther?

Staryu

Still on book 11 ^_^..I try to read slow, so I don't have to wait the 3-mo gap.

5th July 2006, 6:10 AM
In Japan, do they call people by their last names a lot?
yup.

I feel as if I should know all these things...
you should XD The cliff crumbled XD

I hope all goes well for the precious couple (which i'm sure it will) ^^
It better go well *evil grin* Today, chappie 129 finally comes out!!! XD YAY! Can't WAIT!!

Hi! I'm a Furuba fan too! I watched the anime and have all the manga that is out so far in the US.
HI Jen!!! I'm a crazy psyco is who obsessed with Furuba and have read everything that is out all over the world XD And seen the anime... and is VERY obsessed (ask anybody XD)

Still on book 11 ^_^..I try to read slow, so I don't have to wait the 3-mo gap.

XD agreed XDD anyhow that is pretty smart, I could never bring myself to read that slowly figuring I finish each volume the day i get it or the car ride home from the book store ;; *I'm a really fast reader* but then I tend to skip over things that I never noticed that are pretty important to the series.

For example: I did not know Ren was broughten up in book 11 =O

Wow, so many posts! ^_^ Well, it's great to know there's another Fruits Basket fan out there, Jen! Anyways, I would DETEST being called by my last name all the time. D: I don't really like it since no one can pronounce it correctly even though it's easy. Yuki is overly polite, but that's what makes him seem calm and nice. <3 Kyo can act kinda crazy, but that's what makes him so awesome! xP
Yeah, Staryu. The banner that you have is very smecksay. xD

I know! <3 We should make a Kyo Fan-club and convert Yuki fans to love Kyo instead! It's too bad my friend (who reads Fruits Basket, too) doesn't really like him... D: She thinks he hawt (who wouldn't? xD) but she says he's mean, etc. I guess it's because she hasn't read farther than book 9 or something. Either way, I've got to see what I can do to make her a Kyo Fan! ^_^ Kyo can be so sweet and caring to Tohru, though!

Staryu
5th July 2006, 9:04 PM
I did not know Ren was broughten up in book 11 =O
Yeah. Akito's like "Did she throw a tantrum again?" and Momiji asked whats going on..Akito *****es him out, punches him..finds Tohru, *****es her out..yeah.

Eternity Absol
5th July 2006, 9:17 PM
Akito's the one who has temper tantrums if you ask me. ;o And don't you mean Rin, not Ren? I thought Ren was Akito's mother, but I could be wrong. xD
I haven't been outside in a while, yet I somehow got a mosquitoe bite. Hell.

Yep and I totally skipped it and just realized it a few days ago XDD (and I've had book eleven for a few months now Oo)! I thought that part was so sad, after Akito left Tohru went to look for Momiji and he started to cry ;; I thought that was terrible ;;

@Kyo fan-club idea: I actually started one in another forum axcept it was called Yuki and Kyo fan club but unfortuantley(spelling?) it died after a month or so ;; but it would be awesome =D

Is it Kana Sohma? XDD Since I do believe your still Hatori's fan~Right? XDD

I find it hard to describe Ren...people might say she's mean and stuff...but it's only because she doesn't want Haru to get hurt and she wants to protect him. She's very kind. And she has a painful past~

But mostly all the Furuba characters are nice with painful pasts. XDD

Isn't she mean because she thought Akito was taking the love of his husband away from her? XD

How can you not know?! Well, Fruits Basket is the best manga ever! <3 It's about a girl in highschool who finds out the Sohma family's secret. There's some comedy, romance, and it's a great story! Get both the manga and anime if ya can.
The names Rin and Ren are too much alike! o_o; I wonder why Takaya chose those two names, anyways? Oh well. They're pretty, but I get mixed up sometimes... Anyways, when does Ren (Akito's mom) show up in the manga?

Staryu
7th July 2006, 9:55 PM
--EA's probably going to shoot me, but I changed my sig XD..Furuba will be back soon, though!

I think Takaya-sensei?? [would that work there?] used Rin & Ren, because maybe Rin is really supposed to be called Isuzu?

Eternity Absol
7th July 2006, 11:42 PM
It's alright, Staryu. xD The banner you have is pretty and I like the words! ;D Did you make it?
Oh, that would make sense, although I don't think I've heard any of the Sohma's call her Isuzu. ;o Anyways, one of my manga-loving friends got Fruits Basket 12 the other day. I'm so jealous! ;_;

Mysteria Pearl
8th July 2006, 12:03 AM
What IS fruits basket and what is it about
I guess I'll be the first one here not to ignore that question XD

It's a manga written and drawn by our hero, Natsuki Takaya. It was also turned into an anime. It's about an orphan girl who stumbles upon a family who's cursed by the 13 animals of the Chinese zodiac. No, not twelve, thirteen, including a hot-headed boy, Kyo Sohma, the cat. (Tohru falls for Kyo and vice-versa) There's also the leader of the clan, Akito Sohma, who is portrayed as a mysterious individual and also can occasionally be sometimes cruel. Tohru's heart is kind and her mind is set upon helping the Sohmas be released from their curse. :)

I hope that was good. XD I'm bad at summeries

Eternity Absol
8th July 2006, 12:10 AM
I answered their question too, but I guess no one saw it... o.o; Well, that just about sums it up! xP Fruits Basket is also one of the #1 selling mangas and it has over 20 volumes, although not all of them have been released in America yet. Be sure to watch the anime if ya can! It has some differences, but is very good over all.

Mysteria Pearl
8th July 2006, 12:19 AM
Oh! I'm sorry!!!! I didn't see it!!!

One more piece of advice:
If you're one of those kinda people who can't sit still and wait for the next book, LEARN JAPANESE! And also, don't you dare believe in Yukiru or any other strange combinations only seen in the anime. Shippings in there are really messed up 0_o

XD Is it just me or do I always say that? XD

Eternity Absol
8th July 2006, 12:48 AM
Oh, it's okay. xP And the shippings are VERY corrupted, so beware! Still, I love the anime because you get to see everything in color AND hear their voices. Kyo's English dub was really good, although Yuki's was weird. o.o; It was too quiet...

Megchan

--EA's probably going to shoot me, but I changed my sig XD..Furuba will be back soon, though!

I think Takaya-sensei?? [would that work there?] used Rin & Ren, because maybe Rin is really supposed to be called Isuzu?
Actually I believe Takaya-sensei calls Hner Rin instead of Isuzu is because in Japanese the characters used to make up Isuzu inculdes the character that makes up Rin.

Make sense? ='.'=

Anyway, from what we're saying, I do hope you watch/read/both Fruits Basket.
Teh manga is awesome! Anime good, though there's some messed up things, but it's still pretty good. My preference is always in the manga though. Be careful of the japanese Momiji voice. I still reckon it sounds like pikachu -______-

We could start a club about the zodiac boys (including Kyo) cause they're all funny and cool and PRETTEH.
Yeah ._.
Cept Kureno might not fit in those things cause in what i've read (volumes 1-16) there isn't a whole lot about him.
I must learn more japanese so I can read Furuba in japanese.

Minami Itsuki
8th July 2006, 11:49 AM
Yeah. Learning how to read Japanese text is rad. ;D

Maybe? A Furuba boys club? Hmm...~XDD

Isn't like the regular Furuba club enough for discussions about the boys? o.o

The Red Butterfly
8th July 2006, 2:00 PM

Kyoko is one of my favorite characters, although we don't see her much. I just think it's awesome how she was a gang leader and all that. ;o What happens in number 12? I can't wait until I get to read it!! ^_^ Luckily it doesn't take very long to read manga, although I'm usually lazy and only read a chapter or two a day. xD Anyways, is there a site where we can read chapter summaries of Fruits Basket?

I know, I didn't really think much of her till the 7th book then i thuoght she was awesome =D In book 12 Rin and Haru reunite for a bit, she yells at Yuki, parent teacher confrences begin.Tohrus grandpa hurts his back and is bed-ridden. As for Kagura, she tells Kyo why she forced herself to like him <3

not exactly that she pitties him, but instead that it made her feel better to "hang out" with a person who is less fortunate than her.

no, he'd be Kingdra!!! XD

Momiji is obviously Pikachu, Akito would be that one bird that starts with an S... Skyther or something... it's like metal-looking... yeah.

Ritsu would be Apom, Haru would be Miltank! XD Kisa would be skitty, hiro would be Flaaffy (or however you spell it) Ayame would be Etkans, Rin would be a dark Ponyta, Kagura would be a... what are they called? The little brown piggy thingies that helped with the hot springs... uh... yeah... XD

Yay, I finally got to read volume 12!! <3 I can't believe Rin called Yuki a piece of sh*t! xD I didn't even know they were allowed to say that in 13+ manga. The part where Kagura was hugging Kyo after she said she loved him was adorable! ^_^

The Red Butterfly

Well they've said lots 'o swears in this manga XDD *black Haru* Oo

I know, I loved the Kagura and Kyo moment, it was a sweet ending to her forced obseesion XD Tohru would be a Chansey, she's a nice, caring girl who is always willing to help!

Also can someone clear this up for me, I read on some sight that Tohru is pronounced Toh-loo, I always thought it was Toh-ru. Am I wrong? I did notie a few errors in the person's site though, like they said Shigure is prounced with an accent but takaya said it wasn't. Anybody know?

Tohru is pronounced "Toe-roo", but for some Eastern people (sometimes even myself included) XD They pronounced "Toe-(something that sounds a bit like something between an r and a t)-oo

Wow, so many posts! xD Well, I definitely think that Tohru's name is pronounced 'Toe-roo'. That's how they say it in the anime, so it has to be pronounced like that. Fwee! Just to be random, I got this cool downloadable cursor for my computer! ;D

Alright, that's good to know! xP I hate it when I'm used to pronouncing a manga character's name the wrong way, and I find out the correct way. I used to think Kyo was pronounced 'Kai-o'.

I used to think Kyo was pronounced 'Kai-o'.
Me too! And I thought Ayame was pronounced 'Ay Yamh" I didn't know it was 'Ay Yah Me' =S I thought Shigure was "Shy Gurr" XD..this is embarassing.

I LOVE FRUITS BASKET and Kyo *drools*
I had to be introduced to that manga twice to like it! Can't wait till volume 14! I mean I LOVE the shipping Tohru/Kyo
You should have seen how quickly Fruits Basket swept through my school. So many people are reading it now! I can't wait till it ends to see who she ends up with!

Weh ;-;

Did you hear the news? I read it on these other furuba boards, that if 1000 paper cranes [the bird..i dont think thats the right spelling] are sent to Funimation, they'll consider making a second season!! [doubtful, yes. possibly, slightly]

The Red Butterfly

Oh yeah I did hear that, it sounds kind of odd though....why paper cranes? It should be paper zodiac animals =D

[doubtful, yes. possibly, slightly] that's old news. on Fruits-Basket.com, it has said that forever. They've already done that.

Heh. Me too. I always thought Shigure's name was pronounced 'Shig-er' until I saw the anime! xD
Woah... So someone sent in 1000 paper cranes to Funimation? o.o; Well, why won't they make another season then?! ;_; I'd would be so happy if they would since there's so many more parts in Fruits Basket that just need to be animated! xD

The Red Butterfly
11th July 2006, 9:14 PM
Well it wuld be hard to explain some things and they'd need more than a second season to finish off Fruits Basket he way it should be (In my humble opinion XDD)

So how do you pronounce Shigure's name? Please don't tell my it's SHY-gure ;;

Eternity Absol
11th July 2006, 9:17 PM
Shigure name is pronounced 'Shi-goo-ray'. That's how they say it in the anime, at least. ;o
Well, if they make season 2, then they'll have to make more seasons... Fantastic! <3

The Red Butterfly
11th July 2006, 9:19 PM
yeah but it better live up to the manga >=O

Shi-goo-ray??? =DDDDDDD That is too fun! I always thought of it as Shih-grrrrr XD

I know, that's how me and my friends pronounced it for the longest time until we found out that Fruits Basket had an anime too! xD I was like "Oh, so that's how you pronounce all those weird names..." But that's ecause they're Japanese, so... Chyeah. ;o
I know! The anime added and took out a bunch of stuff!

Dub is like~With different VAs of the preferred language. Like they change the voices and stuff.

Sub is like retaining the original voices, but in order to translate you put subtitles at the bottom hence the name, Sub. XD

I actually prefer the sub, unless the dub has Jerry Jewell or Crispen Freeman or Steve Stayle, or Dave Wittenburg, or Steve Blum in it XD muaha!

Eeek. I don't prefer subbed..but I suppose it's better than no anime at all ^_^..maybe I'll try doing that on my DVDs, to get a better feel of the Japanese language.

Mysteria Pearl
12th July 2006, 6:49 AM
yes, but I love the original version much more, no subtitles or anything. It's easier to understand XD
muahaha!
