Fruits Basket Chapter 122


Kyo and Tohru share a kiss.

Well it's been a while since I have updated my blog and I know I promised to put an update of Fruits Basket chapter 120 however chalk it up to an extremely busy holiday season. So now I am back with Fruits basket chapter 122. This chapter starts off with Akito screaming for help due to Tohru's fall off a cliff. Yuki and Shigure are the first to here Akito's cries for help and arrive on the scene, Kyo also hears Akito's cries from a distance. When Yuki and Shigure arrive Akito begs Shigure to help Tohru, screaming the Tohru is not moving. Yuki then turns to go call an ambulance and Akito points Shigure to the place where Tohru has fallen. Shigure then goes on to ask if Akito was responsible for Tohru's fall to which Akito responds that she had nothing to do with Tohru's fall, Akito then goes on to confess that she is responsible for stabbing Kureno however. Yuki then returns asking Shigure to recieve the ambulance when it arrives while he goes to check on Tohru. Shigure drags Akito with him back to the house and proceeds to call the Sohma main house. Shigure calls Hatori and lets him know what's going on and that Akito is with him, Shigure then inquires about Kureno. Meanwhile Kyo having returned to the house overhears Shigures conversation with Hatori and hears that Tohru has fallen off a cliff, Kyo then runs out of the house in search of Tohru. Meanwhile Shigure covers Akito with his jacket and tells her that Kureno is ok, leading Akito to tears. Back outside Kyo reaches Tohru's side, falling to his knees beside her Kyo reaches out to touch her only to have Yuki tell him not to touch her, that she has hit her head pretty hard. Kyo the stares at the blood on his hands and cannot help but remember Kyoko's accident. Meanwhile an unconscious Tohru hears someone crying and at first thinks it is Akito, the she realizes it is Kyo. Tohru then dreams of Kyo walking away and she chases after him wanting to tell him that no matter what she is happy that they met and that didn't realize that the meeting between her and Kyo was a source of great pain for him and regardless she was very happy that they met. Tohru comments on all the things she loves about Kyo, his smile, how he was so gentle and how he looked when he was embarassed. Tohru goes on to say that Kyo became so precious to her and that she never wanted him to go anywhere and that sadly her feeling only caused Kyo so much pain. Tohru goes on to say that everything be it happy or sad must always come to an end and that she wants Kyo to go on living and never wants him to give up, she wants him to keep on living even if she will not be by his side. Tohru then becomes conscious only to see Kyo's crying face, Tohru tells him that it's all right and hopes that what she was thinking earlier had reached him somehow, someway. Yuki runs off to greet the approaching ambulance and Kyo tells Tohru to lie still and not to move. Tohru keeps wishing that her thoughts have reached Kyo and Kyo then leans down and kisses Tohru.

My Thoughts

Good Lord what an intense chapter. The next chapter will not be released until sometime in the beginning of March. Quite frankly this was a shocking chapter so much so that I am at a loss for words. I am happy that Kureno is gonna be ok, however it makes me wonder then is Tohru gonna get sacrificed here. I still feel no sympathy for Akito, to me she still has done way to much to the Zodiac members for me to symapathize with her. In anycase I hope Takaya sensei will not kill off Tohru especially now that Kyo seems ready to accept her love. That would seriously be tragic. In any case leave me your comments as usual. I am sorry I really just don't know what to truly make of this chapter.

    That was indeed a very touching chapter. But, from what I read in the chapter... It really does sound like a good-bye from Tohru. I agree, How sad! Especially since Kyo and her just started to accept their feelings but I feel that Kyo will live on with that love and grow from it. I'm not certain myself what the next chapter brings. A part of me wants Tohru to live, but the other feels like if she died it would deepen the story.

    Thanks for the summary! I don't want Tohru to die, I think that would just destroy the story because her airheadness and sweetness would be missed. What a beautiful kiss, it almost makes me cry! :(

    Thanks for the detailed summary!

    I don't think they can kill Tohru off... She's the protagonist of the whole story, and there are still supposed to be another couple of volumes - not chapters - the manga left, right? It would be pretty weird to kill her. It sounds awfully final and sad, but I hope it's a fake-out.

    I hope Tohru doesn't die either however Takaya sensei is known for killing off characters in her stories. Although since there are still quite a few chapters left it may be that Tohru will live. One can hope.

    For the past couple of months, I had lost interest in Furuba but when I came across this summary, I was in total shock and spent some time catching up on the story.

    I can't help but feel that Tohru will die. In Japan, bittersweet endings are becoming quite popular. Still, I'm hoping that in the end, Kyou and Tohru will be together.

    i totaly loved this cap, and thax for ur post, i know that takaya-sensei offen kill caracter but plz plz i hope not tohru, it will realy destroy the whole story, like months waiting for kyoxtohru realationship and then she dies?! hope not.

    hmm, i just cant see what the point would be if Tohru died. i've read too many interviews with Takaya-sensei to think that she'd just kill a character for a dramatic twist.... although, she's known to just kill characters too.... hmm, but she's said in an interview that the entire manga was based on the final chapter, and the conversation/scene in it. she's also said that the most important thing about fruits basket is the message. now, what kind of message would it portray for Tohru to die? that Kyo is cursed to be alone or something.... (that was sarcastic) although i can see her saying that no matter what you have to keep living (if Tohru died, he'd have to keep living).... but its hard for me to see Kyo living much longer if Tohru died anyway.... and a friend who actually LIKES Kagura (SHE SHOULD DIE lol) says she hopes that if Tohru dies, they end up together. NO. if that happens, i'll be so angry, i dont even know.... hmm, but honestly, i can only see the recurring themes of this manga. forgiveness and second chance. if these are the things Takaya-sensei is trying to portray (which it seems to be) then i believe that it wouldnt make sense for Tohru to die. it would only fit for those themes that Tohru live, so that Kyo knows he can forgive himself, that Tohru can forgive him, and that they both have a second chance. but.... its so unpredictable. Takaya-sensei's the writer, not me, so it's her choice.

    jaa mata~

    I think she won't die because the promisse that Kyo makes with tohru mother.... It's like that he will have to protect her!!! Her to live.... i don't know, arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
    She can't die..... I hate bittersweet final!!! Takaya is known by lilling nice characters???

    so, thank you for the summary. Very intense chapter. At the end it sort of sounded like Tohru was going to die, and Takaya-sensei has a habbit of killing of her main characters/ ones that are like Tohru. However, I still hope she does not do this because it would be extremely odd. There is no real reason to have her die other than to depress the audience. THe death would be slightly out of context (granted she fell off a cliff, but it just would not fit). Another reason that Tohru can't die is because no definite conclusion has been reached. I have a feeling that the series will end on graduation day, but if she kills off Tohru the summer before that graduation, well, that is a long time to be without the main character. The death, no matter how much she seems to be leading in that direction, just doesn't fit right now.

    OMG!!!!!I have been searching for that scan ever since I read the summary!!!!Thankyou so much!!!!Anyway there is alot of evidence that Tohru will die *sob* but there's also alot of evidence that she won't die, like how theres still quite a few chapters left, and that I can't imagine Kyou wanting to live without Tohru. I mean seriously, killing her now would be tooooo sad, even for fruits basket

    hi for a couple of months ive been looking for if tohru dies or not when will u be putting out the next summary??

    Well I hope to put the next summary up however the chapter is scheduled to be released sometime in the beginning of march so still a little while left.

    It looks like Tohru may die, but at the same time it doesn't make a lot of sense to me. By killing Tohru, Takaya will be killing the hope that all the juunishi, including the god, had touched. Unless she plans on having Tohru's death unite ALL the juunishi. But it just would be too sad

     
  • At 4:56 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    ok ur right the story would be totally pointless without tohru i mean kyo would go back into his deep dark memories and never come out and yuki i dont know but he wouldent be doin to good either! DONT DIE TOHRU!(lol)BUT SERIOUSLY!

    I don't like Akito either. I also don't like Kureno, what a wuss.

     
  • At 9:18 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    I know this is a little off topic, but what exact role did Kyo have in Kyoko's death. I must have missed the explanation in the manga, but it seems somehow he is involved, and it causes him pain when he is around Tohru.

    aww soo sweet! i was reading on another website and they were saying how the cliff just came our of nowhere >< ive been looking for this chapter for a while now. thank you^^

     
  • At 5:36 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    I bet its akito falt if Tohru fell because he wanted her dead since the first time he met her! So guess that akito is responsable and how couldnt shigure didnt figure out that it was akito??? because he was the 1 screaming and he was the last 1 with Tohru. I hope that Tohru will make it!!!!

    Go Kyo save Tohru!!!!!!!

    Kyo+Tohru=LOve

    Great Glaux this chapter has GOT to be the most intense chapter of all chpaters!!!!
    I keep wondering if Yuki also doesn't want Kyo to touch her because he's thinks Kyo is partially responsible.
    It is so touching!!My brother, 8, cried for half an hour straight! It's so sad. I think that Tohru will live though. Though she would probally either hate him, love him, or be frightened by him.
    (P.S. what would Uo-the Yankee- and Hamajimi do to Kyo when they find out, I wonder,hehe)
