Fruits Basket Chapter 130!

Dreams do come true...

There is something I want to tell you.
Not just with words, but my fingers that can touch.

We open on the day Akito went to see Tohru. Akito tells Tohru how she was jealous of her, becuase her heart is so much more beautiful than her's is. Tohru tells her that she's not beautiful and should spit things by such things like beauty. She tells Akito that if she is beautiful then so is Akito. She carries on to say it was nearly painful how innocent and pure Akito was, by crying about how lonely and frightened she was.
She gets up from her hospital bed, telling her that she's someone who'd tried to break appart the world Akito was hoping for. She says it doesn't matter if it was right or wrong, but the fact that Akito was hurt so badly. She goes to continue but the flash back ends.

Cut to Akito as we left her last time, knowing Kyo has been freed.

Tohru calls Kyo's name, and steps back in shock to see Kyo looking the same. Once again we see the word goodbye as Akito looks up at the sky looking sad, feeling the loss of the cat. She slumps down onto her knees saying to Akira that it's ok now. She says that now she is no longer god or special, that she is going to be just Akito, its ok now.
Ok for her to begin her own life. She beins to cry and says how she's frightened and in pain and has no redeeming features.

We see goodbye appear once more as Kyo, also upset, reaches for his beads. He rips them off as Tohru also begins to cry quickly followed by Kyo. And again we see goodbye as Kyo looks up crying.

It isn't the end however, it seems the cat has been the catalyste for a chain reaction in the curse.
We skip to Ayame in the shop, he drops the book he's reading as he calls for Mine. She appears asking if he wants more tea or something as dinner won't be for a little while more. As she speaks he gets to his feet and hugs her from behind. He tells her he was born becuase he wanted to love her and now he can finally say it to her. We leave them as Mine begins to cry, seeing the words goodbye everyone as we go to the next Jyuniishi.

Ritsu drops a flower pot and his mother, jumpy as usual, asks him if he's ok and if he's hurt.

It says how parting is sad and over to Kisa who ceases play with Hiro and Hinata when she drops the mogeta doll crying.

It says that things like partings are the begining of meetings as Kagura out shoping stops in the street, looking up as she feels the spirit leave her.

It continues, saying also that when there are endings there are beginings. But those aren't things she wants to hear.
Rin is crying, with Haru who says how in its own way it's really somewhat sad. As we see Akito saying to cry with them Haru hugs Rin.

Hatori stops in the estate as Akito says that if nothing can be done about it at least cry together, looking down as we see Akito bent over on the floor.
She says how her whole body feels like its crying out. Like its blaming her for losing all that it held.

She says about the fear of living in the world once more as Shigure, one of the final ones, touches his chest as he stops walking. He says that this must be how it feels as we see Akito crying once more, saying with just a small bit of hope as her support let them cry with her.

Tohru and Kyo are hugging once more as Akito saying she wants to cry like the day she was first born into the world, Tohru still crying as we see a ghostly hand reach out to touch the flowers.

Back to the hospital visit with Akito and Tohru as Tohru finishes what she was saying earlier. Tohru tells her that she still wants to be friends with her. Akito tells her that she stubborn.

We IM with Akito once more now talking about Tohru. She says how she said believing in meetings and beginings from now on wasn't too late and that she smiled at her. She is sat on the floor, but looks up as the ghostly hand touches her head. At that moment she too is freed as the God spirit leaves her.

We cut to Yuki who in sat on a bench in town. He says how he feels odd and wonders if it's because he's nervous. Machi rushes up to him out of breath having rushed to get there appologising for being later and asks if he's waited for long.

{Just a note but the page after this is missing on my scans. But I was able to find someone online who had read it. I'll try to find it and add it to the scans later.}

He tells her it's ok, saying that she's not late and asks if she ran. Still out of break Machi denies it and Yuki laughs appologising for asking her to come out so suddenly.
Machi says its fine and said that he said he had something important he wanted to talk about. He tells her its something he definitely has to tell her.
He is cut off however as we see the God saying he's the last one.

The God thanks the little rat as Machi asks him what's wrong. He thanks him for keeping his old promise as Machi looks up worridly to see Yuki crying, the small rat going to the Gods hand to be picked up finally.

As Machi worries about him we see an image of the long haired god spirit with the rat in his/her hand taking him away, all the other animals behind saying thankyou and goodbye.

Banner: The twelve Jyuniishii's long banquet has come to an end. For the first time ever with lots of uncertainty and some hope they finally have their freedom.
Next insert Issue 17, 5th of August

My thoughts:
I really loved this chapter. It was good to see all the Jyuniishi again, espeically Ritsu after such a long time.
I'm glad we got to see what Aki and Tohru talked about at the hospital too and that Yuki/Machi moment too. Hopefully we'll see more of YuChi in the next chapter.
I think that the curse was definitely ended by the cat. No one had ever accepted the cat before, not even Kazuma's Grandpa's wife who married him out of pity. Maybe it was when the cat was finally accepted both into the family and by a lover the curse could be broken.
I'm hoping for an explanation next chapter at the meeting. They've still not met with Akito yet and I really want to see a YuChi kiss too. Hopefully we'll see how they all end up too, like partners etc.
I especially liked how Takaya got across the fact that Akito too had been traped by this curse too. Being able to live her own life, no longer being thought of a "god" instead of simply "Akito", she too had been trapped and bound by the curse as much as the others had.

  • At 10:08 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    I'm happy there's going to be another chapter. It's understandable that they'd all cry because the curse was lifted, but it kind is a turn off. I think that having everyone crying was a bit much.

  • At 10:17 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    Thank You Otaku and Seph for all you hard work on these summaries. I can't wait for the last chapter, you guys are awsome. One qustion will you be picking up a new series after fruits basket?

  • At 10:59 PM, Blogger jesi~chan said…

    GAHH!! what do you mean you think crying is a bit much? they were cursed the day they were born and have lived with it ever since. theyve suffered under akitos feelings and emotions...theyve looked down on the cat all their lives. theyve been separated from 'normal' humans and were bullied for looking and acting different. theyve felt the presence of this dark and horrid curse since their birth and still have the strength to stand...how could they not burst into tears?

    ...haha sry i got a bit worked up there

  • At 11:14 PM, Blogger Pocochi said…

    Thanks for the summary! Yeah, there is too much crying going on...but that what happens when a cursed member becomes uncursed, ne? It just too much happening at once, I suppose.

    I emailed you for the scans, just in you are wonderning...


  • At 9:15 AM, Blogger jesi~chan said…

    i emailed you too, seph~senpai, and i havent gotten a reply....im pulling my hair out over here!! (haha)

    Sorry it took so long to reply to everyone but I was shocked how many people emailed me. I had 114 emails and 20 pms on Gaia.
    I've not even checked my yahoo mail yet. I've been replying for about three hours.
    I'll hopefully be adding more detail to the summary later once I've checked the rest of my mail.

  • At 10:34 AM, Blogger jesi~chan said…

    gahhh!! poor seph~senpai! im so sorry we're causing you so much trouble!! i just finished looking at the scans and wondered why my face and neck were all wet then i realized i was shaking and crying my eyes out! (oh lord...haha) so im just sitting here refreshing the page over and over and have 4 friends on aim saying WHAT HAPPENED? WHAT HAPPENED? (the same friends that used to be like ....japanese stuff? are you kidding me? and then i told them the story line and theyre obsessed w/ the anime/manga just as much as i am. hehe.) ANYWAY. poor seph~senpai is like dying responding to these emails.....i cant even imagine how id react with 114 emails! gahhhh!! o.O

    Ah, I noticed I'm missing the third to last page on the scans too. I was able to find someone online who'd read it so I was able to do the summary for it. I'll try to find it and add it to the scans.

    Thank you so much for the summary and the scans! It made my week so much better. It's so sad that the story is finally ending. Bah! After the release of the next chapter what more do I have to look forward to? Haha. Thanks again! : )

  • At 4:40 PM, Blogger Seph said…

    And about covering another series. Seeing as it's you who visit this blog I'd really like some suggestions as to what you would like to see.
    Preferably a recently started series, what ever genre is fine tough considering the majority of our series covered are shoujo try to aim along the same lines.
    I have heard Takaya is doing a new series but nothing more so if you have any info on that let me know.

  • At 4:51 PM, Anonymous kagomesirene said…

    ah...what a sad & happy chapter...i`m glad the curse is finally broken,...hope that shigure finally tells akito what he really feels for her again....and i hope that we lern more about the beginning of the curse in the next chapter....
    again...thanks for the scans....

    Hi Seph, this is Len. I wanted to reply, but seeing as you've got over 130 emails--I'll just wanted to say--poor you! That's A LOT of emails! Well, a popular series is bound to gather a lot of fans around, especially if it's a series in progress.

    i was thinking really hard (haha while i was at work this afternoon...my mind was full of furuba!! hahaha) and at first i had thought the order of the jyuunishi was completely random as they felt the sudden absence of their bondage, but then i got to thinking even further and realized that perhaps its based on order from the least 'cursed' and affected by the curse to the most 'cursed'....heres my backup:

    aayame has never shown any outward signs to resenting the curse AT ALL. ive skimmed through all the chapters he appeared in and realized that not even once did he feel reproachful toward it. he never saw it as an obstacle to getting in the way between he and mine, because i mean come on its AAYA. he has the gift to show his feelings with even the smallest gesture!

    ritsu was never bothered about it, either. the fact that he feels more comfortable dressed as a girl has nothing to do with the curse and never felt bitter about it.

    kisas only true encounter with a problem dealing only slightly with the curse is her and hiro's mutual love for eachother and the disapprovement akito showed to it. but when did hatori (who explained it around ch 37) ever connect that with the curse? never.

    kagura was affected by the curse when she saw kyo's true form in the park just above the sohma estate. the curse (as far as we know) never had any true impact on her.

    haru was resented by many family members for his 'black' side, including ch 49, when he exploded in the classroom. his teacher was mad at him and he mentioned that he didnt kno if his mother would be upset or just laugh...but that is still uncertainty. and then theres always the fact that the inner sohma family always taunted him about being 'slow' and 'stupid' for letting the rat ride on his back to the banquet. so he was affected slightly more.

    then rin was disowned by her family because of her association with the zodiac (even though her family tried to act as though it was okay, this theory was finally confirmed in the fan book neko). she was haunted undyingly all her life to find a way to end the curse, had terrible moments with akito, etc. shes had it rough when it comes to the curse.

    hatoris first love was denied him mostly because of the curse! kana was considered an 'outsider' and for most of their relationship he had tried to keep his secret from her. by the time akito found out about their desire to get married, he blew up at the prospect. he was forced (because of his gift) to erase the memories of many 'outsiders,' which was a painful thing to endure for him because he chose to keep those memories and to stay 'the frozen snow...so that those memories would never melt away.' therefore...hatoris experience with the curse was crazzyyyyy difficult.

    and then...shigure. shigure admitted countless times during the series (especially around the middle and once again in ch....125?6? to hatori) that he was the 'most cursed of them all.' it seems almost as though his life was shrouded in the darkness and confined spaces of the curse. he knew it, too. he almost always had a tendency to bring up the curse to any family member (sometimes around tohru, as well, but not as often except ch 36 (or was that just the anime?) and when tohru overheard him and rin at the dojo.

    and yuki. yuki lost countless friends when he was younger when they had a run-in with the curse. hatori erased their memories after yuki begged them not to, and cuased him a great deal of pain. kyo, whom he had never met before at age 4, hated his guts and screamed that he was going to kill the rat and then kill himself, followed shortly by haru, who yelled that it was all his fault that he was viewed as stupid in the family. yuki found that he had enemies he didn't even know, and it had to have been hard on him, even at such a young age. even though he was 'too young to understand' (I HATE IT WHEN PEOPLE SAY THAT!), toto~san (tohrus grandfather) admitted to kyo that it isn't true. children understand so much more than adults give them credit for, especially when what is being said is coming from the heart. yuki understood, and it hurt him. he was haunted by the prospect that anyone who wasn't a member of the zodiac who knew of his 'condition' would hate him, as well, so when tohru found out he whispered 'it didnt bother you...to see?' because he was so used to being an object to be shunned away from normality. his experiences with the curse are dire.

    but then there are momiji, hiro, and kureno. i mentioned in the previous chapters blog comments that i think their curses dissentigrated because they had finally found a light in the tunnel...a door they could open away from the curse. momiji's was his sister: his light of hope that she would love him no matter what. hiro's was hinata, whom he prided himself in being her older brother and wanted to make sure she would grow to be a good person. kureno...we dont know very much about kurenos past, but we can also consider the possibility that the three who lost the curse hadnt had very many run-ins with the curse in the first place. not like yuki or kyo or haru. they didnt understand the vitality of their bond, and therefore thought that there WERE 'lights in the tunnel...doors they could open.' it was a source of hope. maybe that could bring them to overcome the curse.

    as for kyo...it was said plainly enough in the banner in ch 129. 'when one who was never loved...is loved...an ancient bond becomes broken.' he was (as seph~san said) the trigger for the chain reaction.

    ....hahahaha now that ive let all that out...... ^.^

    OMG I love this chpt. It's like one of the best ones so far!! I too want to see a Yuchi kiss scene. And I thought it was clever of Takaya-sensi to put all of the Junnishi (sp?) crying. That was cool and to have Akito saying that she can be Akito now instead of God. And I want to see more of Kyru!! They're my favorite couple so far!!

    What a great chapter! This such a wonderful website! Thank you Seph and Otaku! Arigato gozaimasu! Arigato gozaimasu! I was reading summaries at a different site before I found this site, but that other site was horrible! When Kyon-chan's curse was lifted, they didn't even mention that in the summarry!

    I'm also hoping for a Yuchi kiss, that would be so sweet! They are so cute together! Oh yeah, AssassinedAngel, I know exactly how you feel. When I first found out about Machi-chan I was kinda disappointed, Yukiru is a nice pairing. But sadly, I'm pretty sure that pairing is dead by now. Although there will always be fanfiction! I know of a great Yukiru writer on fanfiction.net, her pen name is Winter's Light, you should read some of her fics, I'll check out some of your fics.

  • At 5:24 PM, Anonymous saradawa said…

    Thanks for the great summary.Finally I understand the scanlations.I like the chain reaction but I'm still dissapointed with the fact that Yuki ends up being a minor character in the manga. And he winds up with a character that's not important either. Machi actually has no impact on Yuki. She's just a minor character that he likes. I wish Yuki's character in the final stages as being someone who is surrounded with a lot of friends and is more of a player. :P lol He started the anime and manga with Tohru but if the manga ends up with him kissing Machi, I will puke big time. Sorry, just don't like the Yuchi ending. Its terrible.<*__*>
