Synopsis

A year has passed since Tooru Honda began living in the Souma residence, and she has since created stronger relationships with its inhabitants Shigure, Kyou, and Yuki. She has also grown closer to the rest of the Souma family and has become familiar with their ancestral secret, having helped them with many of their personal issues. The closer Tooru gets, however, the more she begins to realize that their secret holds a darker truth than she first presumed.

Summer is approaching and Tooru is invited to spend her days with the Soumas, mainly Kyou and Yuki. Tooru wishes for an easy-going vacation, but her close relationships with the two boys and the rest of the Soumas may prove to cause trouble. As they grow more intimate, their carefree time together is hindered by older hardships and feelings from the past that begin to resurface. The Eternal Banquet also dawns on the members of the zodiac, and they must tend to their duties alongside the unnerving head of the family, Akito Souma.

With the banquet approaching and a plethora of feelings to be solved, will Tooru's life with the Soumas remain peaceful, or will she find herself in a situation from which she cannot escape?

[This review assumes you’ve seen S1. This review is spoiler free for S2, but not S1.] [TL;DR at bottom]

When discussing the Fruits Basket anime, I almost like to regard season one as a prologue. This is not because the story and themes shift heavily from where they begin, but rather due to a dramatic tone shift that occurs roughly a quarter into Fruits Basket S2. While S1 had its flashes of more sobering, dark moments, for the most part, the series maintained a comedic and lighthearted tone. S2, after a brief set of episodes designed to set up events for later episodes, essentially reverses this—Fruits read more

*Spoilers in a marked section.*

My heart is broken. I love the first season of Fruits Basket. Despite its flaws of incest romance and certain characters like Kagura and Shigure, I felt so many emotions seeing the backstories of some of the best shoujo characters in all of anime. When I think of the second season, my chest sinks. In this review, I will be discussing a few reasons why you should be appalled by what has been done to a fantastic shoujo: filler, poor directing, oversexualized portrayals, manipulative characters, and disgusting acceptance of pedophilia.

Many anime have filler. Action, adventure, and shounen, to name a few, read more

Quick Thoughts:
There was quite a bit of focus on character development/backstory this season. The balance between these stories and more lighthearted, SoL content was heavily skewed. It ended up feeling like a 20+ episode pity party.

Story:
The first several episodes establish what I think will be the central conflict the rest of the anime. The rest of season is non-stop slew of backstories for several characters, which help explain why these characters are so emotionally invested in this conflict. These got kind of repetitve/redundant after a while; I feel like the point could've been made in less than 20 episodes.

Characters:
One benefit of the large read more

Sksks, this is my first review so apologies if its wordy and stupid sounding lol!

*CONTAINS MINOR SPOILERS FROM THE MANGA*

Fruits Basket S2 is a perfect continuation of the first season, even though they're removing some of the scenes every fan has been waiting for, at least we got a sequel so we should feel thankful imo.

Story: 9/10
The story is probably the best thing about it, the constant wanting to know who Tohru likes, while also bearing with the hilarious comedy and characters. Even though the series might dodge a few important matters (tohru's parents, etc), it doesn't mean we wont get it read more
