Fruits Basket Chapter 124

Well this was an interesting chapter....not alot of drama, just some sweet moments. This chapter starts off with Akito visiting Kureno in the hospital. Meanwhile at school Yuki and Haru are just hanging around discussing the fact that Tohru is now able to recieve vistors other then family members. Haru then notes thatMomiji probably skipped school for that very reason, to visit Tohru, and Yuki comments jokingly that Momiji's presence will probably bother Tohru. Meanwhile Kyo has his path blocked by Hana and Arisa, when Kyo kindly asks them to let him pass since he wants to visit Tohru, the ladies are shocked by his kind demeanor and even Arisa says that she may get a crush on him when he acts so kind. Kyo then asks them to cut to the chase and tell him what they want. Arisa then gets angry and tells Kyo that he has no right to visit Tohru, to which Kyo just comments that he is aware of that. Then Arisa says that some who is aware would not make comments about Tohru's disillusioned feelings. Kyo is shocked to hear that Arisa knows what he said to Tohru before her accident and turns to Yuki, who confesses that he did tell Arisa and Hana thinking that it would not cause this much trouble. Arisa the tells Kyo not to bother visiting Tohru and Hana says that he doesn't need to visit because he would just be giving her meaningless apologies, which she does not need to hear. Hana then goes on to say that Tohru is not blaming him so why is he blaming himself. Kyo then decides that before he can visit Tohru he needs to pull himself together and work things out in his head. As Hana and Arisa leave Haru tells Kyo that he is still taking the blame for everything, and Kyo just said it doesn't matter, having Hana and Arisa get mad at him helped a little. Meanwhile back at the hospital as Momiji is walking he sees Akito sitting on a bench and goes to sit down next to her asking her if she is there to visit Kureno or Tohru. Akito then says that Tohru and Kureno should be blaming her more then they are, they they are soft hearted fools. Momiji simply says that she's very lucky that they are like that, Akito gets away free from the blame. Then Akito starts crying and Momiji asks her why she is crying. Akito says that when she went to visit Kureno he just smiled at her, and she remeber how kindly he has always treated her, and that she always treated him poorly consuming his time. Akito then says she is mad at herself for her poor treatment of people. Akito remebers how Kureno would always accept her empty apologies, she doesn't understand how he easily forgave her for such unforgivable things. Momiji then tells Akito that from now on she should love and cherish those people around her. That it's very much like the foolish traveller. Akito looks at Momiji confused tto which he then tells her the story saying that after hearing it she will definately want to visit Tohru. As Momiji tells his story at the mainhouse we have a suprised Shigure, when he notices that Akito is missing from her room. Shigure is suprised to see that Akito has travelled alone to the hospital. Hatori then asks if something has changed between Akito and Tohru. Shigure says yes as he recalled the day of the accident when Akito sat on his porch talking to him. Back at the hospital Akito opens Tohru's hospital door only to her her sitting on the bed very much like how she imagined her at the banquet in her dream. Hatori meanwhile asks if Shigure plans went accordingly and Shigure replies that he does regret some things. Hatori asks him what are those some things he regrets. Shigure simply comments that he is coming to terms with that and that he has changed in some small ways as well. Back at the hospital Akito hesitates at the dorr of Tohru's room but as Tohru reaches out her hand to Akito, Akito moves foreward reaching out her hand to take Tohru's.

My Thoughts

Well this was an overall sweet chapter. It's nice to see that changes that have occured in Akito and to a lesser extent Shigure. I still am not sure what Shigure was trying to accomplish, maybe he wanted to free Akito from her bonds as the "God" of the zodiac, but I still hope to see some closure in there relationship. As for the Stupid cat he still needs to get his ass in gear, but I am glad to see Hana and Uo get on his case. Momiji was great in this chapter as well. I always felt that Momiji's innocent demeanor really hides how truly mature he is. Well the next chapter is scheduled to be released April 5th. Here's hoping for a Kyoru chapter....lol. Anyway leave me your comments and thoughts as usual. I love to hear them.

    I absolutely loved this chapter. I cried during the whole Akki and Kureno conversation... ^_^ I'm so sensitive. Akki is finally turning over a new leaf, and I'm so proud of her! ^o^

    And to think I've never liked Momiji that much. o_O I love him now! I just knew that when Akito said that they were hopeless fools that Momiji was going to say something about the Foolish Traveler. *smiles*

    Thanks for the summary!

    I'm hoping for a Kyoru chapter next or maybe even a Uo/Kureno chapter if I'm lucky. Momiji shocked me by how harsh he could be but it's good to see that he reverted to the kind little rabbit once Aki-chan started crying.

    T_T I thought this chapter would have Kyoru in it... Oh well I guess its alright that akito will be tohru's friend now. Hopefully the next chapter will be packed full of Kyoru. But i have this bad feeling Takaya-san's gonna make us wait.

    I am sooo suprised at what happened here. This chapter showed more of Akito's longing to be able to be free from his bond of the Zodiac curse as "God". But Kyo needs to get his fucking act going on and face the truth about his love connection with Tohru. I mean he is saying he can't protect her but really he is protecting her in a way from him. maybe that is how he feels towards all that is happening. He can't get close enough to Tohru because of him. But really he needs to relize that he has the power or the choice to make their relationship work and to break the curse.

    Kyou shouldn't blame himself for what happened. Tohru chose her own way.

    oh yipee! sorry im a random furuba lover, but still, thank you sooo much for doing this summary....but im very glad that akito is changing slowly and realising that she has many things to be thankful for and that she has been taking things for granted......*sigh* i am slowly starting to come out of the phase of hating her....ahem...
