Fruits Basket 136!!

It's all over!

Yes at last the scans are out. The series ended last weeked but we've had no scans until today. Plot wise I found it a little disapointing, it was a little overly perfect for everything that's happened but seeing everyone again and the colour page made up for it a little.

Setting out on a journey…With a smiling face.

When the accustomed uniform is taken off
I begin to be a little lonely
When I’m insecure, when I’m hesitant
In such a way
I’m defeated
But however I become
it’ll be alright
In this fingertip that trembles slightly
There is warmth piled up
Because your name
Is an invincible spell.

Tooru has decided to go with Kyou to a distand land to discover a new way of life. The time to set off there is soon...

On the day of the graduation ceremony
the sky way perfectly clear

And the clear wind
flowed past

Our graduations and
departures, each one

bless them.



Kyou-kun’s and my

departure too.

We’re mostly done
with cleaning
this room

It’s quite magnificent now
that its empty


Kyou-kun’s room is
also empty, isn’t it.

there’s nothing
Tonight we’re
staying in
Shishou’s house.

For some reason…

I keep
remembering the
day I passed
into this room
for the
first time.

Yuki-kun and
very kind

I became very tense.


Kyou-kun came
through the roof.

There was that

as well…

was very
Everyone changing
surprised me

it was



had a lot of fun.

Passing everyday
with everyone

It was fun…
A jewel

It is dear

It is dear



…That’s it


You think
that because
you loved us
every day that passed?

When you love

Equal to the amount that you loved

Is also lonely.

…you don’t


As for you,
more than
you think


Loved you.


It’s alright
Without the separation
of this life

…a new banquet
can’t start



*Guu~~* (Growl)

Excuse excuse

…You picked a
strange place
to get so
strangely shy…

Well then
let's eat

That’s it

I’m delivering it to you now


It’s the
key to my
new house
Come by

so you won’t
think I’m being
unfaithful over there
and worry.


Such a thing
…I’d not
particularly though about it…

It’s a lie!!!

Obedient humans
are best, don’t you think?


You are an
unpleasant person…

The departure is
only a little

Way off…isn’t

Uh huh
Mine is



Are you


…Uh huh

of course



I am
Meeting Yuki-senpai

in this way

will not
be so
simple now


I’ll catch up to you

Without fail
I’ll catch up to you…

I’ll wait for you…

*Sign: Souma*

So, so,

Shigure-niisan has
Stopped being a novelist
…Did you know?

Is it so!?
I did not know!!
However I knew he had
come back to the main house…
Uwa. So, that’s what’s what…

I heard it from Mitsuru-san…that
already Mitsuru-san

The evil has perished.
It has perished~~

That’s good
That’s so~~ good

…Uh huh
It must be
because he can
be by Akito’s side.
It must be nice.

Will they get married
I wonder?

Come now-

What about you Ritsu,
when will you get married
to Mitsuru-san?


How. Such.
I’m. St-still. But.
Like this. Su-such as me.
Forgive me...

The furisode!!
Won’t you give
it to me!?


Ah- again
Do it when you please.
Everywhere people are
already loveylovey.
It’s good.
For me now, working
is pleasant.
It is busy though…


The send off is tomorrow…
You’re going, right?

I’m going to that
however it is not
because of Tooru-kun,
it is because of
charming Kyou-kun.

TN: Of course, as most of you know, “kawaii” is most commonly translated as “cute”. However it can also be used for lovely, charming, pretty etc. In this case and considering his age, I thought “charming” would fit Kyou best instead of cute.


You want them…
to become happy,

No way, no way
it’s different.

Without fail
they will become


That house…
Everyone is going to
stop living there…
so when they do…I wonder
what’s going to become of it…

Will they demolish it…
I wonder…?

I’ve heard it
will be left that
way for a while


It’s good…

That its not
being demolished because
someone could live there

Uh huh…



I’m sorry,
it’s different…

It made me think
of tomorrow…
…It’s alright.

Tomorrow smiling...
I’ll send her off……

…It’s ok

even if you feel
like you
have to cry

do it

because you loved her.


Said to Tori-nii he’d “hit himself”
definitely, however
it’s alright as
he was laughing…

That’s obvious---

is more
adult than

We’re adult…



Can you say that~

cannot be
For Tooru
he was a nuisance.
He just
wants to keep her
to himself, don’t you think~?
TN: Momiji is talking about how troublesome Kyou was to Tooru in the first bubble. Not a trial as in a court of law.

I want to
pinch Kyou!

You could pinch him

It’s not possible
before Tooru
Ah, well. But,
I’m fine, one
dream is possible.

For me to be
among those finding
a great sweetheart.
I will look
to others.
TN: Momiji is saying he’ll finally give up on Tooru.


Tooru must
become happy no
matter what

Even from now on

Laugh no
matter what.

think it’s
ok to
be divided……

I keep getting angry

And keep sulking…

like that
well then
it isn't...


They’re having
fun now



It was I who said
we would employ
her for boarding…
But still,
this one…
No, it’s not
just how Saki-san is scary,
its also
Kyou’s shocked look…
When he heard...

His face was going to fall off

I am Hanajima Saki...


Something you
want to say…?

Not one word!!

I’m sorry, it’s not possible
I can’t do anything
to stop it, Kyou…
But is it so bad?
Do I want to observe it?

...at last
It’s tomorrow, right


even if I become loney

I won’t

Really, that’s right…


Really, it’s

I’ll give them
your best regards.

…well, I must admit
I’m lonely but
I’m kind of
trembling about

my journey too

…right, the
cherry trees, have they bloomed?

…a little more

Well then…
A little more
and I’ll be
setting off.

I’ll prepare a feast

Tororo soba?
(Trans note: Tororo soba is a cold noodle dish made of a puree of Japanese yam. It’s also the first thing they ate together.)


about this!!
A present to

Great job Mine!
Anything you feel like, anything you happen to think of,
put everything into
the cardboard box!!
Even to send them off
to lead charming lives, it’s
my serious duty!!


By my
children becoming
is a lonely thing

It really
is lonely

Therefore, we adults
will include our love
and gloomyness in the box.
The instant cup noodles,
the socks and
maid uniforms that
have been sown.

To send
in place of
our feelings.

For that child

It will certainly
go on a journey

Even more in
Yuki’s case, it means
this gorgeous substitute
must be sent!!
Even every week.
(A dress each week? Poor Yuki.)

is for
It can still go!
TN: otouto-kun = younger brother aka Yuki.

In summer vacation!?
I’ll go, I’ll go
I’ll definitely go!

it ok?
I can go?

You can go
since I’m inviting you.
Until now, I’ve
honestly been
nowhere traveling.

I’ve not gone to
a large number of
places, even inside the country.
For the time being
the south
is in order…
TN: It seems Hari is planning on going to other places as well as Okinawa.

It’s great
It’s great!!

It sounds like
Hatori-kun is
feeling good!!
Hatori-kun and
the south island!!
Hatori-kun and
half sleeved shirts!!

It’ll really be fun, Mayu.
Don't you have any restraint?

Because I can imagine how you’ll look in a bathing suit…

It's not that hard

I’m sorry, my
figure in a bathing suit
is a joke



…it’s bad

The style…
I have no……

Breasts, don’t I?
I’m tall


Right now…

But you’re laughing!!

Look. Well, in
any case!!

I’ll go
round to the
agency today!!
Are you going to
the send off tomorrow?



It would be nice
if it cleared up.



Our errand
is completed…
Shall we go
somewhere to play?

…Return home
and work.

You’re serious,
you know…

You’re going to
the send off tomorrow,
you have to do
the things you
can today.

You’re truly
not going?

…I’m not going.

But it’s
when I think
I’d like to meet
with them

because I’ll
go meet them.

the way,
will I
have to go
with you?


You cunning child.



…Is the
tidying up done?

...in the kitchen
there’s some rice
left out to eat,
eat it.


I would like to talk
with Honda-san,
just the two of us

…Is it useless?
TN: Yuki is asking here if it’s useless to assume Kyou would let him do such a thing. Seems like Kyou is even more protective of her now.

Living room


Be sure to stay

Stupid cat.

…I don’t need looking after.

Stupid rat.


Welcome home!

…I’m home

The departure...
Is finally
tomorrow, right



“welcome home”

I won’t be able
to hear it, right.




To struggle
on alone
until now.
I am

I wanted to be loved.

our new environment

Thank you…

Being able to meet you

was good.

…You being here

I liked it.

Thank you.

I’m going but I’ll be back.







Where are Tooru-kun
and Kyo-kun?

Call them
Obaa-chan and
Ojii-chan okay?

Tooru-kun said
I was allowed
to “call them

As the years pass by.

The End

After 8 years and 4 months, thankyou for excitedly reading everything. Please hope for Takaya-sensei's prosperity in spring of 2007 and thereafter with her new story.

Thanks to Merrow for the scans:
Once again please email me for the pw. And just to make this clear; the scans I post here are raw they are not the scanlations of the chapters. I work with Magic for the scanlations, I don't and will not post them here. The scanlations won't be done until the translation is done. If the full translation isn't posted here, the scanlation isn't going to be up either.

(And if you really love me, please take just five minutes to view or comment on my gallery.)

    Thank you so much for the scans. Very sad. I can't believe it's all over. I don't think I would have ever gotten tired of tha manga.

  • At 11:59 AM, Anonymous Ale-chan said…

    I got first some digicam scans and then some good scans, you should go on the fruity group, they have it there,(but I don't know if you can share those ones, anycase you can read them, I found no probs with those) I already summarized this chapter and I found it disappointing for one big reason: while all the others learned how to live happily together, Kyo and Tooru closed themselves to the others.
    Yuki's speech to Tooru was moving, he said that everyday of their life they would think about her hoping she was happy...but IMHO, Tooru didn't do that in resturn, she was just so busy thinking about her little world with Kyo that all the others were left outside her happy life...
    This saddened me a lot.

    at the end, do they return back to shigure's house? the house that the granddaughter is leaving from, is that is?

    if so, we can assume that they do come back to see everyone (if everyone is still around there)

    but I wish they showed them with everybody in the future.

    thank you sooooooo much for putting them up. *hugs*

  • At 6:28 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    So it ends. Ahh... thanks so much for the scans. From what I see it is sugary sweet coated. An overview of the charcters and their respective couples. Although I did dislike the flashback scenes. I am unsure of a couple of the people I saw there! I did see my Ritsu with short hair.... but who was he with? I believe it kind of what you expect from a shojo manga, yet I wish the end pages were a little clearer...

  • At 7:45 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    Oh !!! I love final chap!

    The pictures:

    SEPH~SENPAI IS THE BEST!! i crieeddd and criedddd and crriiieeedddddd....a lot. no, the girl is kyo and tohru's GRANDdaughter. they had a son, and the mother shown is his wife. they had a daughter. you can see on their bookshelf a picture of a young boy growing up and then a picture of their wedding day between their son and his wife.

    ....................i cried soooo much... i dont think komogomo will ever be able to take fruba's place. i hope takaya~sensei knows that...

  • At 1:05 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    I think Komogomo is funny.I think it's cool that Takaya-sensei started a series that is run on comic strips. I still question whether or not it has a true plot or if it's just like Calvin and Hobbs and doesn't really have an ending.

    When I saw the last page of Furuba, I felt empty. Not all the way empty, but I was still sad that it ended. Now I have to find another series!

  • At 2:49 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    waaa...furuba has ended...
    i feel somewhat sad...huhu...
    i cant read the last chaapter...its just too small..but i think its a nice one...ahah...
    i want to see tohru and kyo scene moree!!!

    eh so...that was their granddaughter?whoaa...they have gotten so old!

    I'm not a member of Fruity Group (only FG2) so I've never gotten the scans from there.
    Sorry for not crediting but honestly I had more important things on my mind and forgot. (We had to take my cat to the vets just after I posted this.)
    Ah those scans are much better. I'm doing my psy coursework today so I'll try to start the translation tonight if I'm done in time.

  • At 9:29 PM, Blogger jesi~chan said…

    AHHH!! FAN BOOK!! what will it be now? fan book nezumi? fan book inu? fan book onigiri?? hm... i wonder. AHHH life rocks! extra endings...how could i have forgotten about fan books?? good lord.

  • At 3:02 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    Hey Seph I have an off topic question, but hoped you'd answer it. Awhile ago I clciked on a link of someone's photobucket account and it directly sent me to the pictures they had there. But, now when click on the link or paste it for that matter it sends to me to the same page as yours which is password protected.

    Just wondering. If it is a possiblity that they changed that option or something. Also, the last photobucket link I clicked on was yours and I kept getting a screen with something about alert.

  • At 7:05 AM, Blogger Seph said…

    Most likely. If its now asking for a password and wasn't before then they've changed it to not be public.
    Really? What did the alert say?

  • At 10:05 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    I just logged on and I didn't receive an alert screen. Thanks for posting the scans :P

  • At 10:22 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    I am bit disappointed w/the ending too. I did not expect for it to go so far in the future. It would have been better if they just showed them as parents not grandparents.

  • At 6:21 PM, Anonymous River Adachi said…

    I must say I was kind of dissapointed with the ending, I think it could have given so much more, I think they just focused to much on Kyo and Tohru (and I am a Kyoru supporter...) Also t kinda makes me sad to imagine them as grandparents...

  • At 7:44 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    Thanks Seph. Yeah my computer sometimes acts kinda wonky with it comes to security alerts so it probably has nothing to do with your photbucket.

    It said:

    Adobe Flash Player had stopped a potentially unsafe operation.

  • At 8:19 PM, Anonymous Anju said…

    They had a kid! And they DID get married! YES! Their kid is so cute! <3

  • At 10:14 AM, Blogger Seph said…

    Yeah that sound slike its a problem at your end.

    That's not their child. They had a son. The little girl is their grandaughter. She calls Tohru and Kyo "Kyo-kun and Tohru-kun" but her mother (assuming they've had just one child its their son's wife) tells her to call them grandmother etc.

    I hope to start translating this chapter thursday providing my teachers don't give me any more work. T.T
    (Ended up staying home today to get it all done for tomorrow.)

  • At 4:47 PM, Blogger kandykorn4bv said…

    when i click on the link it says must sign in as Seph-Noir... help!!! i NEED to see the last chapter!!!

  • At 5:49 PM, Blogger Seph said…

    Oh and just a random comment really but if anyone happens to have some good images of Rinali/Linali/Leenali from D-Gray Man, specifically the anime, please send them to me. I'm cosplaying as her next year and can't find any good images of her.
    I'd love you even more if she was wearing that long dress/two piece thing. The one with the purple sleves.

  • At 2:59 PM, Anonymous Inuyasha-loves-Kagome said…

    *cries* it's over. (well not really since you guys say there's gonna be a fanbook and hopefully have extra stuff on what happened to everyone later). But still it made me cry from the little Japanese I could understand. Tears in my eyes, no manga has made me cry like Furuba.

    Also I feel a little cheated though that I didn't get to know what happened with Momiji and his mom and sister. Unless I missed it. Did his mom ever know about him in the end? Or did he at least get to be with his sister (I think I do remember seeing a chapter where he realized Momo knew about him and he told her who he really was.) But I also wanted to see his mom realize...And Momiji was barely in the end of the fic as it is. He just made a few appearances here and there (same with Ristu and some others but still, out of all the stories and who ends with who and has a happy ending, Momiji is the only one unfinished imo).

    Sorry for the rant I was just confused.

    And since I also thought it was there daughter and one pic was of Tooru with her parents I need to go back and check it over again. So that pic of them walking away was them already as senior citizens?

    Hopefully with your translations we'll better understand Seph-sama ^.^ But don't do them if they stress you out. Take your time! <3

  • At 3:01 PM, Anonymous Inuyasha-loves-Kagome said…

    oops. Forgot to mention.

    Thank you for posting the chapters for us! Until the end! <333

  • At 4:06 PM, Blogger Seph said…

    I don't think they're that old. Considering the lack of lines on Toru's face when we see her for the last time I think it's safe to say she followed Kyoko and had her son quite young.

    Yeah sadly Momiji never told his mother or his sister about his relationship with them. The last we say of his family was after he was freed and his mum told him they were going away for the holidays. I really would've liked to see him tell at least Momo when she was older. I'm possitive she would've understood.

    I'm hoping to start the translation on Friday. I've not had a day without homework yet but its slowly going down and now I've got non-blurry scans it should be easier.

  • At 5:56 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    Y'know, not to be a perv but I gotta wonder... how did Kyo ever broach the subject of sex with Tohru?

  • At 6:08 PM, Blogger Seph said…

    Yeah with someone as inexperienced and innocent as Tohru when it comes to things like that I wonder how he managed it.
    *Gasp* What if she suggested it!?

  • At 7:31 PM, Anonymous DracMonster said…

    I'm having a mental image of Kyo handing Tohru a bunch of Shinju Mayu's works and telling her to study up... Muahaha!

  • At 7:36 PM, Anonymous DracMonster said…

    OH yeah, to the poster who wondered who Ritsu is with, that's Mit-chan, Shigure's long sufferintg editor. Takaya-sensei had confirmed in a (way, way earlier) side note that they were a couple, but there was no time to do any storyline about them...

  • At 11:14 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    it shows him with the editor, but isn't he talking with Kagura about it...it seemed like he was returning all the clothes he had borrowed.

    waah...! no more furuba... :sniff: i'm gonna miss them... T.T

  • At 6:22 AM, Blogger Seph said…

    Yeah if you remember back to the neko fan book that was released alongside volume 17 we see Ritsu and Mitchan together then. It's nice to see she brought the couple over to the official series.

    OMG, Tohru and Kyo as grandparents?!?! O.o To be honest, I'm rather disappointed in the last chapter. It went WAY too far into the future. And what about Ren?! I'm sure she has more secrets that may never be revealed.

  • At 6:43 AM, Blogger Seph said…

    Yeah I was really disapointed at how heavily it focused on KyoRu at the end. It would've been nice to see them all together as adults or at least see if Momiji was ever able to tell Momo. The whole Ren/Akito showdown was just a dsiapointment for me too, it was completely avoided.

    I got very good scans so as soon as I got them I zoomed in on the last page and got a real good look at the rectangular picture in the *family* photo section. On the left is a woman with wavy black hair and on the right is a blonde woman with a short A-line haircut. Next to the blonde on the right is a man bending over and patting a kids hair.

    I was depressed at first because on the small scans I couldn't see anythin of Arisa or Saki. I thought it strange that Tohru wouldn't keep her best friends in her memories. But *I* beleive that the woman with wavy hair is Hana and the blonde is Arisa. Between them is their families.

    It just wouldn't make sense for her not to keep SOMETHING of the two friends who always supported and protected her. And I beleive she also considered those two as family.

    I had to have good scans and I zoomed in 2X's but it looks to me that even if it's not with Shishou, Hana DID end up with someone ^ ^

    If it was with Shishou it would explain why Kyo and Tohru's family live at Shigure's old place. . .

  • At 6:21 PM, Blogger Seph said…

    I can't see the man you're talking about. From the left I see the woman with black hair that is likely Hana, a man, a woman, a child, and the blonde with the short hair.
    I think it's likely to be Hana, Kyo, Tohru, their son, and Uo.
    If it were their families it would be a little strange for Uo to be considerably taller than Kureno. We know Tohru and Hana used to be about the same height which works with the other two women and Uo was taller than both except Kyo which also works. It would've been helpful if they'd been drawn with faces. Its a little sad there isn't a photo of the other Sohma's too.

    Tohru and Kyo probably live there because no one else has a need for it. If you think, Shigure is with Akito so they'd be at the main house. Yuki would be with Machi so they're probably living together somewhere so that just leaves Kyo and Tohru,

  • At 6:39 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    mind yo u it took a *lot* of zooming, maybe some wishful thinking hehehe. . .between the wedding picture frame and arisa there is a man bent down with his arm extended toward a child. his hand is on the boy's shoulder and the child "appears" to be looking toward the man. The arm is across Arisa's chest in a diagonal and the man's hair is sort of under Arisa's chin indicating that it's a much taller man bending toward the child (kureno)?

    Maybe the little boy is Kyoru's son and he's taking a picture with the extended family?

    It would make sense if he's shy around Arisa and Kureno, perhaps he doesn't see them often? The taller boy in the middle looks alot (ie. has the same exact hair ^^) as the tall man next to Hana. I don't think the boy is Kyo 'cause the boy is the same height as Hana, but looks like the tall man. . .

    Of course only Takaya knows and she may elaborate on the picture in the future fanbook ^_^

    Of course this is probably because I hate the thought of Hana and Arisa remaining spinsters. ..

    Anyway that was my own impression.

  • At 7:10 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    looked at it again. It's probably glare from a light source. . .


  • At 9:07 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    No matter what, Hana does get a happy ending. . .she still looks slender in the picture despite eating a LOT of food. . .I'll take guilt-free snacking over a man anyday. . .

  • At 1:11 PM, Blogger Seph said…

    Oh I see how it could be an arm. I'm pretty sure its shading though like in the other photos (their sons leg for example).

    I meant the person right next to Hana, the tallest one in the photo. The third one from the left is likely to be Tohru.

    Hopefully we'll get some insight on who she ends up with in the fan book. It would be nice if she was with Kazuma but I can't see it happening.
    I want to see some more of the other Sohma's in the future too.
    What shocked me the most was that Yuki wasn't in the photos anywhere.

    What's your opinion on the two top photos? I'm wondering if its their son and his wife or his wife and their child?

  • At 2:07 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    well I think Takaya sensei deliberately did a "see what you want to see" sort of thing. Kinda like that picture where some people see a young lady and others see an old crone ^ ^.

    Some people didn't even see Hana and Arisa and thought Tohru dissed her best friend all together. I think the red hat is Tohrus memory of Yuki. I'll just assume he admitted to her that it was him sometime in the future.

    I am starting to think Takaya- sensei made Hana and Arisa visible in the pictures and let fans imagine who the others are. The person by the tall man looks like a boy to me 'cause he/she has really short hair and he's Hana's height. But it could just as easily be Tohru with a REALLY tight ponytail, side bangs, and she grew bit taller (Hana was always taller). I also noted that Arisa is standing a little away from the Hana group and if it were Tohru Arisa would be much closer.The picture is cut off as well so ther could be other beside Arisa and the small boy appears to be looking in that direction.

    I think the top two photos are Kyoru's son. The right when he was a toddler and the left when he was a bigger child and the large oval when he's going to highschool maybe.
    I though the bottom picture was a picture of Kyoru's son with the "family". Remember Kyo and Tohru were closest to Saki, Arisa, and Kazuma more than anyone else, so the kid thinks of them as Aunts, and Grandfather most likely.

    Of course I like happy endings so I'm ficcing about Kagura and Momiji getting together (they have the same tastes in backpacks). I even over analyzed kyouru's son's wife's hair and thought it similar to Yuki's hehe, and the fact that the granddaughter was playing with a cat AND a mouse, so fanfiction writers get plenty of cute ideas to work with.

    Sorry for the long post, but at least I didn't just leave my e-mail and expect the pw to magically appear ^ ^

  • At 8:00 AM, Blogger Seph said…

    Yeah I got the big oval picture as their son in highschool too. Maybe on the first day or graduation?

    Yeah the lack of faces was definitely deliberate. The wife and all the people in the picture appart from Kyo and Tohru in winter and Kyoko and Katsuya all lack faces.

    It would be interesting if she was related to Yuki and Machi, her hair reminded me of a mix of the two.
    Adult KyoRu's son looks a big like Katsuya too which is nice.

    Yeah I much prefer big posts than asking for emails. ^^

  • At 8:43 AM, Anonymous Kat said…

    I just noticed that! The mom does look a lot like Machi and the grandaughter holding both a cat and a rat in her hands sure does make sense. I'm going to go with that because I like that idea.

    Well, since there is no text or anything it's all left to our imaginations. . .can you imagine kyou and yuki fighting over the grandkid's affection? ^ ^

    i didnt look close enough to be able to tell they were still in sensei's old house! that ends the story so much better--i was almost sure they had stayed in some foreign land. wouldnt that have been depressing? so theyre still close to the rest of the sohma family, and not choked off from them...

    I thought it was a sweet ending, but I was really dissapointed about there not being more on the AkitoxShigure pairing... They're my favourite couple. And what about Ren?! What, are they completely ignoring the fact that I need some closure on that topic?! I wanted Akito to face Ren at least one more time!!! Y-Y

    Yeah I was really disapointed the Aki/Ren showdown was completely avoided and Aki decided to just let it drop.
    I'll be sending Magic the translations for 133 and 135 (which I'll also be updating on the blog) so the scanlations will be out over the weekend. I'm working on 136 once I've finished school next week because it's a mad rush now to get coursework in on time.

  • At 3:27 PM, Blogger Mary said…

    I found that (in the last page)in the pic. of (what I assume is) KyoRu in winter, over by Kyo, if you look at his arm, there may be a little head, because there's a little white spot and Kyo's arm shape changes the tiny-est little bit by the white "spot", making the appearence of very dark hair!!! That's just how I saw it anyway.

    I agree with what someone said earlier about Momiji and Kagura getting together, that'd be fun.

    I also think Kyo looks realy weird in a Shishou kind-of outfit, but I still think he's the best!!! I am part of the unofficial Year of the Cat Fan Club (yes, I have no life ;^) I thought is was a nice thing that they kept the beads on the memory-display-thingy to remind them of the past.......I wonder if they ever told their son about it......or would he just not believe it......or did they tell it to him in a fairy-tale-like fasion so he wouldn't believe it.......I wonder?????

    Can you believe that Akito is actualy starting to look like a girl?? To me, she'll always be the incredibly p-o'd guy that hates all girls and is incredibly protective of the Sohma guys........I remember before Arisa was with Kureno and before you knew Akito was a guy, we saw Kureno kiss Akito and the first thought that went through my mind was "OMG's, Kureno's GAY!!!!!" but later was proven wrong, which made me take a sigh of relief......

    Anyway, sorry for the incredibly long post, but this is my first time posting 'Otaku Corner' and I had a lot inside that I'm pretty sure my sister is tired of hearing me repeat........thanks for "listening"

  • At 3:31 PM, Blogger Mary said…

    I meant to say before you knew Akito was a GIRL, not a guy, I think I was thinking 'before, when we thought Akito was a guy.....' my mind somtimes thinks 2 things and my hands type some of both........yeah

  • At 4:02 PM, Blogger Seph said…

    I can't see the head. Where exactly is it? Its a shame we can't post images in the comments section or it'd be easier.

    Oh, and just to let everyone know. I will be translating this chapter. As some of you already know, Shadow won't be translating because of the number of people who've been stealing her work for scanlations. I will still translate though, but it'll be after the 19th.

  • At 5:26 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    Now I'm going back to look at those pics again. . .

  • At 5:53 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    Well I looked, and that white spot zoomed in real close looks like an open hand. Like the smaller person was waving 'cause the thumb part and fingers had the proportions of a hand. I think maybe the winter picture may be Kyoru's son and their grandaughter as opposed to Kyoru. That picture was fairly large (compared to the others) so Takaya-sensei (I think) would have put the toning in for Kyo's hair she used throughout the manga.And the small person in the picture looks *really* childish and has short hair (like a manga toddler).

    I think the whole set up was to give readers a look into their lives throughout the years. I think
    it also shows that Tohru includes her childs memories as important. I think the pictures also show age progression throughout the years. . .Son is a toddler. . .son is a child. . .sons is in or graduated high school. . . son get's married (I dont think it's kyoru . .don't kill me. . ). . .son has a child of their own. . .Boom their Grandparents.
    Which also makes me think what about Kazuma and the Friends (Uo and Hana) Everyone else gets a memory slot-
    Tohru's family-picture
    Uo and Hana-rectangular picture (looked closely)
    Kazuma-even though he raised Kyou wasn't worth a frigging memory.
    (Unless you want to pretend the tall guy next to Hana in the pic is him. . .)
    Horribly long post *runs*

  • At 6:02 PM, Blogger Seph said…

    and dad is kyo/tohru's son (we already know that) and it
    is also obvious because the granddaughter IS playing with a cat
    AND a mouse(jyuunishi-kyo,yuki,which are the dads of them) so that would make perfect sense. seph, do you agree?

    into the future, really a disappointment. i was thinking

    being old. really before they go WAY
    in the future,there should have been
    more volumes before this SHOKING ending. i wish they would be young
    till the very end..... but then again we wouldn't have known that
    yuki/machi and kyo/tohru's childs
    married each other,and the daughter
    was playing with a cat and mouse
    so im a little satisfied.. *sigh*

    All I have to do is make sure I save enough.

    As for the woman being Yuki'Machi's girl, I think its a definite possibility. I remember I said earlier how she looked a lot like them so I'm definitely leaning towards her being their daughter. It would really work well with the little girl holding both the rat and the cat too.

    I was dreading my GCSE's too especially my english exam i didn't know any of the poems! Luckily I did o.k! YAY!

    Thank you. ^^ I've had him for four years now, all of which we've gone over essay technique, so I've found I've started writing more and more formally as the years go on. (My dad looked at my eng coursework over the xmas hols and asked me if I'd copied it becuase he didn't know I wrote in such a way. ^^)

    Ah lucky! I've got the big ones left. T.T Crit Think is just an AS but we take it this year to boost our UCAS points.

    I hate to admit it but I completely blagged my GCSE's and my AS's. (appart from my psychology paper) I hate revising so I played cards for GCSE study leave and went to meets and shopping for my AS study leave. Don't do what I do though, revise! I seem to have some weird thing where for most subjects the more I revise the more I forget. (Psy revision helped though! Managed to get an A. *wants to be a psychologist*)

    HAHAHAH DOES ANYONE REVISE FOR GCSES?? We didn't get study leave until a week before our exams and all I did during that time was sleep in late and go out with mates! HAHA!

    LOL! Did you do psychology for AS or gcses? I did the psychology gcse that was the easiest exam I had ever taken! I got the best results in psy the school had ever seen (but my school is the land of the chavs so can't expect much!) 135/137 which I was well happy about!

    HAHA! Your dad though you copied! LOL! That must mean your going to ace that exam! You've just got the big ones left, ooohh I hope you do well! Are you going to uni straight after or are you going to take a gap year?

  • At 6:10 AM, Blogger Seph said…

    Ah that sucks! We got about two weeks before our exams. (Loved that ten week summer hol!)

    I did it for GCSE and I'm doing it for A-Level too.
    Well done! AS exam is uber easy too! I revised a little the night before and got 102/105. It's a lot easier than this year. T.T (Actually need to revise this year.)

    Thanks! I'm home today studing for Lit tomorrow. (Of course I'm a little distracted by thoughts of my Vincent Valentine cosplay for Aki-chan)
    I'm going straight to uni and taking a year out after. I've spoken to some people and they've found it difficult to get back into a studying mood after a year out. I've got to save for Otakon this year too so it'd be difficult.

    OMG you're so lucky! I wish I could go!!!! Me is so poor :(

    OMG well done on your psy exams! I wanted to do it this year but it clshed with French adn I hate the a-level psy teacher he is sooooo boring!

    What's your english exam on?

  • At 5:59 PM, Anonymous Cresenne said…

    I can't believe this...KATSUYA is on the cover of the 22 book!!! What in the world are you thinking, Takaya-sensei!!!!

  • At 7:54 AM, Blogger Seph said…

    I know what you mean, I only work in the hols so I rely on my pocket money during school times. T.T (Which is currently being spent on things for their costumes...and a cute umbrella for them that I found.)

    Ah that sucks. Maybe you could do it as an extra AS next year?
    It was poetry this time. We've been working on Keat's poems. (Dear god that man is so morbid! His poems can start off happy then he always finds some way to work death into it. Though the poor sod did die at 25.) Two exams left! *does happy dance*

    I can't believe we've had Katsuya before Kyoko! It would've made more sense to have them together on the cover. He showed up properly in just one volume!

    I can't believe it's finally over. ;_; I really enjoyed it though. ^_^

  • At 8:35 AM, Anonymous Najmin said…

    POEMS?? Blech I hate all these poems, I remeber doing them for GCSEs but they must be even more boring at A-Levels! LOL!

    Yeah I was planning on taking it as an AS next year, hope your two remaining exams go well!

  • At 6:34 AM, Blogger Seph said…

    Not so much boring as horribly morbid! I swear the guy was bipolar or something. He starts off happy then always manages to make it about death.

    Yay one left!

  • At 9:41 AM, Anonymous Najmin said…

    LOL HAHAHAHA! I swear some of the poems schools make you read! LOL!
    One more? I bet you're happy! Good lcuk on it!

    YAY IT SNOWED TODAY (in London) I was really happy!

  • At 11:05 AM, Blogger Seph said…

    Aww everyone has snow appart from us! It's absolutely freezing but no snow because Bristol is protected by the hills. T.T

  • At 5:32 PM, Blogger Seph said…

    I demand you send some my way! ^^
    It's warmed up a little tonight so we might be lucky! *crosses fingers* I'm home revising for Geography tomorrow so it'd be so great if it snowed. (Not so great for my revision though)

    Been on a bit of a spending spree tonight because of the US exchange rate. Bought new clothes for my boys, modeling clay for their cosplay and now hopefully a rare Yuki plushy once I find out how much shipping is. Decided I deserved it after burning my finger last night working on my Vincent Valentine cosplay. (Apparently super glue and metal react and makes the metal get really hot. Not good when your finger is glued to it!)

  • At 6:04 PM, Anonymous Najmin said…

    OHHHHHHH OUCH POOR LIL FINGER! Did I mention how lucky you are and how jealous I am I want to cosplay! Why are we not lucky enough to have things like that in our country!!!! I AM SOOOOOO JEALOUS!!!! LOL!

    All the snow is gone now, me is sad!!!

    Good luck for geography!!

  • At 6:25 AM, Blogger Seph said…

    I meant the UK cons. ^^ Theres on in London in July and October I'm going to.
    Aww no more snow. T.T We still haven't got any.

    Thank you. ^^ I'm tempted to work on it once I've finished furuba. I'm not starting the new series until after my exams are over so I'll hopefully have some time.
    Oh to those wondering I've finally been convinced to translate Ouran High School Host Club next. My friends have been scheming to get me to do it and today I finally caved.

    I got an A for History I was welll pleased!!

    Hope your's went just as brill

  • At 7:00 PM, Blogger Seph said…

    Congratulations! I got an A in Crit Thinking, C in english (only a few marks off a B T.T) and a C for geography. I'm doing a retake for geog to get a couple more points. Right now though I'm rushing to get my psychology coursework done. ><

    And a quick update.
    Kyouko is on the cover of volume 23! The Banquet fanbooks also been released. It has Tooru, neko Kyou and nezumi Yuki on the cover. It should contain artwork from Takaya, hopefully more mini stories (it says plays so I'm not sure if its manga or just script.) and an interview from Takaya. As soon as I get scans I'll post them!

  • At 6:44 PM, Anonymous najmin said…

    oohhhhhhhhh that's soooo wicked well donee

  • At 8:12 PM, Blogger Seph said…

    Thank you. ^^

    Got some updates concerning the fanbook now.
    It seems there isn't any alternate endings in the Banquet book. Vol 23 is the average length so they're not included in that either. There's also no new artwork in the art insert for the fanbook and no group photo. The only manga insert is one that seems to focus mostly on Shigure's fantasies. There's fan-voted contests such as best couple, chapter and character. Overall, I'm a little disapointed by this second fanbook so far. I was looking forward to at least some single page out-takes like last time. Hopefully there'll be some interesting things brought up in the interview but without any scans I can't say for sure either way.

I am soo happy! *SOB* I agree with kat. I would've liked it to go on forever and ever. I love Fruits Basket that much! So thank you Seph and to Merrow, (is it??

    Thank you so very much for the scans and summaries (and, as was the case with chapter 136, the translation)! ^^ I appreciate your hardwork and dedication you had to the series. So, thank you once again.

    Oh, and I also got the Fruits Basket fan book, yet, I can't read Japanese... ^^' But, I did scan the little comic that was in it, and you can find the raw scans here: http://s14photobucket.com/

    I don't know if the scans are good enough for you to translate, but I thought I'd take a shot. Hopefully they are, if not, then I wish you luck in finding good scans for it! :) Thanks and take care! :D

  • At 2:15 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    I am extremely mystified by the translated dialogue between a good number of the characters, lol. I am particularly in favor of Shigure X Akito (which got very little airtime, and the Ren confrontation heh uh got forgotten apparently ^^; ) Can anyone shed some light on the meaning of Shigure and Akito's conversation? I suppose I am having difficulty seeing who is saying what, from looking at the manga scans alongside the (excellent) translation here. Why does he call her a cunning child? All I know is they're married and it appears one of them is telling the other to stop playing at get ready for Tohru and Kyo's sendoff????

  • At 2:36 PM, Blogger Seph said…

    Ah sorry, I'll add names next to the text if everyone is getting confused!
    Shigure begins by saying that he wants to go play now their jobs are done in town. Akito tells him he should go home and work instead because tomorrow he'll be going to see off Tooru and Kyou so anything that needs doing he should try to get done today (or he won't have time for it tomorrow).
    Shigure thens asks Akito if she's really not going to see them off and she confirms it because when she feels like seeing them, she'll just go see them.
    Shigure then asks if he'll have to go along with her when she wants to visit them and from her smile I'd say that's a yes. So he calls her a cunning child. (Becuase then he'll get to see them too)
    They're not married yet though, though its a sure thing in the future.

  • At 2:48 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    Ah thank you very much (this is the same person that asked the complicated Akkigure question ^.^). And no, it's not that confusing, it's just me being unable to see where the little bubbles are pointing in the actual manga scans, lol.

    That's surprising actually. REALLY surprising, about Akito not going to the sendoff. I have difficulty understanding why she'd not want to go say her goodbyes, considering she and Tohru became SO close, and she no longer views Kyo as a monster--and time has clearly passed with the assumption that they would only get closer.

    Perhaps Akki has difficulties with goodbyes, or feels that she would make it too uneasy for the others because they're still a little afraid of her? Or perhaps she feels that saying goodbye in such a contrived fashion would be upsetting and unnecessary, since she'll be going to visit them anyway??? Hmmm.

    I guess I shouldn't be TOO disappointed by that, considering the other implications are that she 1) will travel a great distance just to see Tohru and Kyo "when she wants to," since they're going away to some distant dojo of Kazuma's, and 2)that her sly smile implies her impending marriage to Shigure, as does his sly question. That's so typical of them lol. I do wish they'd had a longer scene, but at least that one was quite representative of their relationship. I feel the same way, actually, about Hatori and Mayuko's scene. And I do miss seeing Momiji and Momo reconciling. I suppose this final chapter is a case of "let the viewer draw his/her own conclusions." The plot climax did come, after all, already, in chapters 130-131. So. Yeah lol.

    LOL sorry for all this conjecture, I just don't get to speak to many people who have actually read the entire manga besides myself ^.^;

    Hey Seph are u from Iowa cause uni ( you said in one of your earlier comments) is in iowa if so i; am from iowa and also i love the furba series i think i just finished the 17 book. The library didn't have anymore and i don't know where to look have any suggestions. I am probley the youngest Furba fan on this site i am 12. I have a few friends that love it too. My favorite characters are Kyo and Shigure. I also like Thoru and Hana. Hana is my fave girl character cause she is goth and i am eco goth. I really liked the part where kyo turns into his true form and yuki and thoru look for him. I barrowed the first 26 episodes of the series at my library, they only had s. 1. sad :( i wish they had more. Sorry for a longish comment. Bye

  • At 4:16 PM, Blogger noodle said…

    Uwaaaaaa! Sooo cuteee!
    Thank you so much for explaining all the chapters here, I only recently started reading Furuba but I've caught up and just read the last chapter today. I live in the UK too, do you happen to know how many volumes have been released in the UK bookshops so far?

  • At 1:09 AM, Blogger Eternity Wish said…

    I like the happy ending, but:

    Even though Momiji's curse was broken very soon, even though he's willing to stay a grade behind in order to meet his little sister Momo, there isn't a single scene showing Momiji playing with her and in the end, we never know whether or not Momiji shall be recognized by his mother and sister. What a big frustration!!

    - It would've been better if all the "how's the weather?" or "what's for dinner?" junk dialogues were bypassed.

    - The reason Akito allowed an outsider like Tooru to keep her memories isn't convincing. I was expecting something deep & scheming.
