3 comments on “12 Days of Anime 2019 – Fruits Basket (2019) Helps Me to Heal

  1. Fruits Basket heals. I wish I could put it in a more clear or profound way. But every time I watched it, I could feel it affect my being. In a way, what you just said about the series in general and Momiji in particular validates that.

    “I tried to see things from my mother’s perspective.”

    that might be the most mature thing I’ve read this year. After what you described, being able to even attempt that…

    I’m really glad you’re sharing this with us. It’s hopeful precisely at a time when we need more hope…

    • It’s interesting, but I actually read the majority of the manga a long time ago, back when I was 14/15. It didn’t affect me nearly as profoundly then. I think it must have been because I was still a very angry person. I wasn’t ready to let go of those emotions, because, back then, they were like a protective shield. I’m glad that I’ve reached a point in my life where the hopeful, life-giving messages of Furuba actually reach me and help to inspire further change.

      Thanks again for stopping by. You’re one of my favourite guests, I always love hearing what you have to say!
