Fruits Basket Chapter 123

Sorry I have not posted anything lately; however I am just swamped because of this anatomy and physiology class I am taking, it's horrible. Well anyway this chapter was not as intense as the last, and while I was a little disappointed by this chapter at least Yuki is able to get Kyo to get his ass in gear. This chapter starts off with Yuki who has been staying by Tohru’s side at the hospital. Eventually Grandpa Honda arrives and tells Yuki that he can go home. Before Yuki leaves however Grandpa is curious as to if Kyo is aware that Tohru is injured; as he would have expected Kyo to be by Tohru’s side. Yuki then says that Kyo is the one that makes her cry and is a total fool, however he is the only one who is adequate for Tohru, more so then he will ever be. At the main house Shigure as brought Akito back home. Kagura along with Kisa inquire about Tohru and Kureno whereabouts while Hatori checks in on Akito. Meanwhile other zodiac members are doing there own thing. When Yuki gets home, is surprised to find Haru visiting. Haru comments that Tohru’s accident is the topic at the main house and that many family members are concerned. Haru goes on to mention how the news shocked Rin, and the makes an inappropriate comment about her increase in breast size. Haru then says he is visiting out of concern for Yuki and Tohru; saying that Kyo would not tell him how Tohru is doing. This pissses Yuki off, who goes upstairs past Shigure who just walked in; looking for Kyo saying at this point in time his issues do not matter. Yuki barges into Kyo’s room demanding to know why he did not go to see Tohru, Kyo’s response is that Yuki can do whatever he wanted, but his presence would only bring pain to Tohru. That stupid cat then goes on to say that Yuki should be with Tohru. This leads to the house being torn apart upstairs because the two are obviously fighting and Haru amusingly just asks Shigure if they can order take out; ignoring the drama unfolding upstairs. In the middle of the fight Kyo yells out that he wished he was more like Yuki. This pisses Yuki off even more, who yells that he always wanted to be more like Kyo. Yuki is so pissed to the point that he starts beating the shit out of Kyo until Kyo finally decides to block some punches. Yuki then goes on to say that they can only be themselves and no one else, and that they have to accept who they are. Yuki in his anger destroys parts of the house saying to Kyo that he has always been protecting Tohru by doing little things. They way Kyo made her smile, they way he made her laugh, just by being with her everyday he was protecting her. Yuki then goes on to say that if he were by Tohru’s side, she would not feel the same way she does when Kyo is by her side. Yuki then tells Kyo to get up and stop being a stupid cat. Kyo leaves and Yuki just comments on how he hates people like that. Yuki meanwhile comments on how it would be nice to go through life never stepping on the wrong path, however Haru comes upstairs interrupting Yuki’s inner monologue to check in on his well being. Eventually Yuki, Shigure and Haru are eating dinner when Shigure inquiring about Kyo’s whereabouts comments that the visiting hours at the hospital are over. Yuki just mumbles that Kyo really and truly is an idiot and that Uo and Hana need to teach him a lesson. Meanwhile that stupid cat is in front of the hospital on his hands and knees realizing that the hospital visiting hours are over.

My Thoughts

STUPID, STUPID, STUPID CAT! I had honestly thought Kyo had worked through his issues in the last chapter, obviously not. This chapter made me seriously pissed off at Kyo, I wanted to be the one to kick his ass with Yuki. Seriously he should have been the first one in the hospital, what a dumbass. I think Yuki is right when he says that Kyo is the only one who really needs to be with Tohru, because with him she is truly happy. I was happy to see that Kyo and Yuki finally confessed what they really feel for each other is admiration, I feel there is some resolution between them in this chapter, as we get closer to the end of Fruits Basket. For me this chapter didn't really do much other then resolve some tension between Kyo and Yuki, as well as get Kyo's ass into gear. Well the next chapter is scheduled to release on March 20th, so hopefully I will have my summary up. As before leave me your comments, thoughts, whatever, I love to hear everyone's opinion on this chapter.
