Fruits Basket

I think [episode 4] was incredibly HILLARIOUS (even though poor Kyo-kun was beat senseless). Kagura all together made me laugh so hard i passed out i couldnt breath for so long! *hahah* Anyway what do you guys think? ~Shea

I liked ep 13 more (I'm up to ep 16 now). Kyo could try telling Kagura off (those fits of hers are just way too hazardous), but I can understand if he hesitates to do so (yikes). He could at least try to defend himself. All that training doesn't seem to have helped if the only person he can hold his own against is Haru... It also puts a cramp on his future prospects if he already has Kagura proclaiming her love... I'll have to see.

But Kagura's love for Kyo must be strong because she still loves him even after seeing his true form and the way that Kagura can find so much to love about one person is way Tohru likes her way of loving people.

But even so Kyo shouldn't always get beaten up by her.

Kagura really DOES love him but i think she is bi-polar. She only beats him cuz she loves him! Ive seen EVERY ep of Fruits Basket. Kagura doesent get him in the end though it kind of leaves on a cliff hanger... But he DOES end up holding her hand! ^_^ ~Shea

I've only read a bit of the manga but i reckon Kyo acts a bit differently in it than in the anime

That episode is one of my favorites, because Kagura is one of my favorite characters! I love her outfits and that demented cat thing that is on her back. I thought it was kind of funny how Kagura was introduced into the episode, because at first she looked shy and was behind the wall and asked if Kyo was there and then she started beating him up and that caught me off guard...

lol i really like kagura's clothes too. Her personality mood swings are a little werid though but i think it adds to the comedy of it all.

Exactly, it's especially funny how Shigure reacts to his house being damaged and in this episode his kitchen got burned! I thought it was adorable when Tohru helped Kagura fix the door and they stuck those animal shapes on it.

I guess that shows how obsessed she really is about Kyo. Too bad Kyo doesn't like her back.

Don't worry,

Spoiler wrote:Kagura eventually moves on in the manga. That volume has yet to be released in the US though, although in the most recent US release, Rin/Isuzu does tell her to stop forcing herself on Kyo and calling it love.

Very interesting, thanks for telling me that. I just started reading the first volume of the Fruits Basket manga so it's going to take me a while, but once I get a few more volumes that volume will probably be out. About Kagura was she really in love with Kyo? I thought she acted like that, because she felt sorry for him. Or maybe that's how it started out and then later on she began to fall in love with him.

I'm where you are in the manga, right after book 1 - but my impression was that nobody can stand Kagura except Kyo. (And Tohru, when she shows up.) She's surprised when Tohru says that she admires something about her. Yuki doesn't seem terribly happy to see Kagura either, and she doesn't even beat him up.

So she's probably thankful to Kyo for being her friend when they were little, and got attached to him because of that. Actually, come to think of it, considering how badly Kyo himself was treated by the family, it all gets pretty depressing; it's possible no one would stand to be around him except Kagura and his Master, either. Which is probably why they still hang around together despite all the antagonism.

Okay, now I want to hug them all. ANGST!

I am glad to hear the spoilered part above, though. I've felt sorry for her for being so one-track-minded.

I get it now! I think...but it does make sense. Though I'm still weirded out by how she displays her love for Kyo by beating him up...does she ever stop doing that in the manga? I think she'll stop beating Kyo after what the spoiler said about Isuzu/Rin telling Kagura.
