Fruits Basket Chapter 125!



Well it looks like we're back to another student council chapter again it is good to see a Yuki/Machi chapter after so long.

In the student council room Kakeru is asking Yuki if it's true that Tohru is in hospital, Yuki looks a little shocked that he didn't already know and asked how he heard. Kakeru tells him that he overheard his classmates talking about it after Kyo's near execution with Hana and Uo. Yuki explains that Tohru had an accident as Kakeru asks if Kyo had been the cause of it. Most likely assuming so from the way Kyo has been acting.
Kakeru then asks if Yuki's stressed and if he'd like to cry on his chest, and Yuki responds by threatening to throw Kakeru into the sun.
Yuki thinks to himself how things have changed inside himself and he's proud of it. He knows it due to his new friends; Kakeru and the others.
Kimi interrupts his thoughts by asking what Tohru really was to Yuki and to his shock Kakeru answers for him telling her Tohru was Yuki's heart's Mom.
This confuses Kimi and she assumes he meant girlfriend but Yuki tells her that's wrong and so ends up confusing her even more.
After school they go shopping together to help Kakeru buy something for Tohru as a gift. He settles on buying her a rock CD explaining that if he doesn't know what to get someone he buys them what he'd like to get. Yuki asks if Kakeru is going to visit Tohru at the hospital and Kakeru replies that he's going for both he and Komaki if it's ok with Yuki. Yuki agrees but secretly didn't want Kakeru to meet his family considering what he was like. {Ugh two Ayas together.} At that moment Kakeru shouts out to Yuki about the pornography corner. {Yeah, really don't want that meeting Ayame.}
When they leave Kakeru asks if Yuki wants to go with him but Yuki says he was planning on going tomorrow but quickly thinks that maybe he shouldn't go with him at all. Kakeru tells Yuki not to come with him as he's a different person around Tohru and it's embarrassing. As the split up Kakeru tells Yuki he's really hung in there and did well recently. Yuki once again thinks of how he used to be but now he's got people to rely on and be concerned for him.
After they go their separate ways to go home Yuki sees something in the window and instantly thinks of Machi. He asks the shop keeper if the item is authentic and buys it when the man says it is. After he's paid for it his cell phone rings. Surprisingly it's Machi who says she wants to give something to Yuki. He asks her to wait where she is after finding out where in the city she is and says he has something to give her too.
He finds Machi looking rather lonely waiting for him and she instantly apologizes for causing him trouble and had been thinking of giving it to him the next day, it's another gift for Tohru but she wanted Yuki to give it to her as it would seem weird for her to give it. It's a bath set for stiff shoulders and backs to which Yuki asks if she'd tried it before and liked it, remembering what Kakeru had said about buying something he would want if he didn't know what to buy. Yuki quietly comments on how like brother and sister they really are.
Machi then gives him the gift she got for him; a bag of fertilizer. She explains she'd remembered him saying how he needed some earlier and wanted to give it to him today so it kept it's "freshness". {The shop keeper had been teasing her and told her that it didn't last long.}
Yuki thanks her for the gifts and then gives her the Mogeta plush he'd bought for her. As Machi looks at the plushy Yuki can only say how her face looks like Mogeta's. She hugs it and thanks him for it.
As Yuki is about to say something her bag flies away, Yuki goes to get it and as he picks it up Machi begins to speak to him.
She wanted to thank Tohru for looking after a certain president and it made her happy, so she wanted to thank her. She says that she's really happy that Yuki was like the way he was when he met her because it was due to him being that way that he talked to her. She ends with saying that she's really happy that Yuki is here.
Yuki remembers how Haru once mentioned that it seemed like Yuki was like that {weak} because he had someone to find. He quickly realizes that that someone is Machi. As both of them begin to cry Yuki thanks Machi for finding him.
As it looks like they might be going in for their first kiss, it suddenly skips to the hospital where Ayame sneezes. Kakeru has taken to calling Ayame "Commander" and suggests that seeing as they're at a hospital maybe he should get checked over. Ayame refuses saying a single sneezes is from someone talking about him and that only Hatori is permitted {to examine} his body ><.
As his usual blunt self Hatori suggests that maybe Ayame should get his head checked out instead and Kakeru asks what he has to eat to become as cool as him.
Takaya's side note mentions that they're waiting their turn to visit because of a visitation rush and the room being small.
Afterwards we cut back to Yuki and Machi, now both smiling at each other lovingly, realise they were like two people on the edge of the world crying together. And so linking hands they leave the station together, Yuki thinking how a miracle like being together can make you so happy.
Banner on the side: Amidst so many people, the miracle of being able to find and be found by the one you really need. Someday, for you too...
Next chapter: 2nd May

My thoughts:
I was hoping for a Kyoru chapter and when I saw it was a student council chapter I was ready for a filler but this definitely surprised me. It's so nice to see another Yuki/Machi moment after so long since the last. I loved that Yuki got Machi the Mogeta plush and am so glad that they've finally gotten together at long last. It would've been nice however to see if they'd kissed or not. I'd seriously not expected Yuki to be so forward, though it's good to see at least one of the guys in this manga has enough back bone to at least hold a girls hand.
It really is a shame it's ending soon, unless Yuki is freed I would love to see how Machi deals with his curse.
Fave moments from the chapter:
It's got to be either the way Machi copies Mogeta's face when she first receives the plush, or when they walk off together holding hands. <3



And now for the first time on this site I give you the whole chapter:

    Grr, deleted instead of editing it.
    Anyway, I was saying that my friend has an account on there and we share the photobucket account so she put them on there. I'm waiting for my penpal to send me HtY so hopefully I'll have some better quality ones soon.

    I think they just met on the way home. From the way the page looks it's likely they're on a train together. Why did she have to suddenly skip to them though?!

    My Thoughts

    Well I thought I would post my thoughts on the comment section tonight. I have to say this chapter was really a pleasent surprise. Although I admit I was hoping for a Kyoru chapter. What was interesting about this chapter was Yuki who was always so introverted was able to open up his heart to Machi. As a character I think Yuki has really developed and grown (unlike a stupid cat we know). I know I am being a little harsh on Kyo but like I keep saying he needs to get his ass in gear. Well I am glad Yuki finally found someone, now if he can only get rid of that pesky curse....Anyway it was cute to see the famous trio visiting Tohru, it's been a while since we have seen them all together. I would like to see some closure between Kureno and Shigure. Maybe Shi will visit Kureno after he visits with Tohru; well one can hope. In any case with only six more chapters to go it will be interesting to see how Furuba unfolds and how the curse will be broken. Thanks to Seph for a excellent summary as always.

    To Otaku if she stops by:
    I've gotten ten volumes done so far. It seems to be going quite quickly. I'm going to try and do hopefully another three today so I might even by almost done by the end of the week. I can't do 22 yet so that leaves me with 11 to do.
