did anyone get why she was leaning against tree? did she trip? puke? or was she just being overdramatic?

OMMMMMMGGGG what a fucking dramaqueen she is.... there is people who have had familymembers deformed in much worse ways.

gawd this episode felt girly.

I think she puked and was feeling weak. I don't get why you say she's a drama queen, I'd like to see you in her place... And no, I don't think that there's people who've had been deformed in a more horrible form than Kyo. But yeah anime = real life, hmm?

I loved this episode, it was really moving even if I can't see anything because of all the darkness xD

I really loved this episode... Admittedly, though, I thought they could have done with less silence. It could have gone a little faster. Then again, maybe they were using that to try to build up the emotional impact on the watcher, I guess.

The atmosphere was really heavy, but it was still a lovely episode.

Are you seriously comparing burn victims to... what looks like a demon from someones nightmares? Its true there are many deformities like burn victims or tumors that could be shocking especially if their family members, but at least for more ordinary people its still comprehensible in the sense that their still people. I mean, are you more likely to be scared/snap mentally when your standing infront of diablo, the lord of terror... or a burn victim, guess thats exaggerating the point to my side, but you get what i'm trying to say.

In any case, good episode, i found the part with Tohru's friends to be touching. I hope Tohru has strengthened her resolve, onto the last ep.

wow, i cried so much. T___T
Kyo had such a lonely life in that it was cursed. I wonder what will Tohru do. A little conversation with Akito, or rather a monologue surprised me . It was strange and a bit annoying cuz during that Honda did not absolutely nothing. And a big shock about Hanajima (what a pity that she didn't appear so much in this anime), howshe knew it all! " how she knew that there, on the graveyard - would be Tohru, how she knew that onlyTohru can do something, that she has to go somewhere?

Awesome episode, one of best

Burn victims are grosser. Kyo just looked like a big goofy monster, something you'd see on sesame street.

If I was Tohru when Akito got in my face, I would've slapped the shit out of him and said I don't care. You ruined everyone's life anyway! D:<

you just compared a little rabbit looking thing to diablo... i would shit bricks if i saw diablo unnoticed... but she knew before that they could change and stuff... and she puked because of the smell so you are wrong noobs... i am right! as always

Ehhhh...

As a manga reader, I wasn't too happy with how they handled the cemetery scene and Tohru's reluctance to go see Kyo. The entire scene was too melodramatic. Why they added something like this when it isn't even in the manga is beyond me. The same applies to Akito showing up out of nowhere while Tohru is by the tree.

What a dramatic episode-quite a shocker after seeing so many sweet episodes, but I guess that it was all leading up to this.
I hope that Tohru does regain her strength so she can deal with poor Kyo and become a part of the Soma family again. This family is so cursed and she is the only bright spot for them.

To all te people that keep comparing burnt people or people with tumors
you know you're comparing a human being with a monster :/
kyo is a monster and looks quiet scary for an ordinary person can handle and when taking of the bracle he transform to his true form and has a horrible smell which again ordinary people can't handle which cause tohru to puke a lot by the tree
but she isn't a drama queen she's truamatized from seeing a person she cares for turn to a monster right before her eyes

learning more about kyo of how his childhood was looked pretty sad but it seems like shishou saved him good episode overall

I think this would test even the most good hear-ted people, so I don't think you can blame her. I hate to bring it up, but there are quite a few differences in the manga during this part.

It's not like he's going to stay in that form for the rest of his life right?

So I don't understand the big drama Tohru is making out of this.

well, if my friend become a zombie, dragon, or monster.It is very hard to imagine what kind of reaction I am going to take.Normally at first it is very hard to accept such S-Fi truth that happen in front of my eye. but in this episode I think I might react the same thing like Tohru did if Kyou(my best friend) become a ugly monster.Unexpected situation like this take time to understand .
well in the manga is a bit diff thou, but the Anime also open a new way to see how Tohru really is .

and Aki is a sadist ><

I think this is the 5th time I am watching this...
first in yout tube > torrent x 2 >veoh > himado = 5 time lol

Loved this ep. because what tohru did is more of a "true" reaction anybody would have. Not always the "I'll accept you for who you are!" right away.

Anybody would be traumatized first, but at least, hopefully she will get over it.
Now we understand where kyo's anger is coming from.

And did I say Master is hot? LOL

This reminds me of Tam Lin and how in order to return him to the mortal world his lover had to hold him tight through all sorts of transformations. I'll wish Tohru luck, because Kyo's fate depends on her.

Tohru is obviously shocked from what she saw. I'm just glad Hanajima's there to give her a push.

Kazuma has really cared for Kyo now. I think he was hurt when Kyo said he isn't his father. I feel sad for everyone. Especially Kyo. It seems the cat is the most miserable out of the cursed zodiacs. And Akito is annoying as hell! I hate him!

I guess Akito is feeling smug right now... I was pretty impressed with Tohru's reaction. She seemed to be trying to deal with the shock of seeing Kyo in his true form, but obviously needed the help of Saki. I mean, she tried to follow him until she got so sick she was throwing up.

A very emotional episode, it had a great impact. Still, I feel her reaction was atleast a bit over the top, the whole transformation thing is already usual for her and he didn't look all that scary to me.

Looked like a skinned cat or cat without fur.

This episode was a failure. The most melodramatic thing I've seen in anime so far. Especially the grave scene... wow.

Well, I'm happy to say that the grave scene didn't exist in the manga. In the manga Tohru gets sick at the tree (she also doesn't meet Akito) and then gets back up to chase after Kyo. I guess the creators of the anime wanted to include her friends somehow and to push Akito into the front in order to set up the next episode. But, I think it was a bit of a failure.

I liked how things became a bit more serious but I thought the graveyard scene was a little dumb. There was no real need to add her friends into the end and try to give her Saki's random ESP enough influence over the story. I'm not even really sure why she's been crying the whole time. Does she not accept him for who he is? I mean yeah it's a shock but with her attitude on life, friends, and accepting people, I expected her to have a completely different response. I mean she ran right after him...and then just decided to give up randomly. Yeah that Akito dude made it worse, but she was just lying there the whole time.

Interesting how they decided to end things with Kyo. I didn't really expect the story to move in this direction but it's all good. One more episode.

I wonder if it is really necessary all that scene featuring Akito? and the scene of her friends I think was indeed filler
besides that yeah, it was so heave D': , Come on Tohru!, save Kyo, you wasn't over dramatic as several people are saying

Phew, I couldn't even breathe this episode. Everything about it was so suffocating and profound. The deafening silence spoke more volumes than any amount of dialogue. Tohru didn't react the way I'd have expected, but what's really made me anxious is why she's so brokenhearted. I have the feeling that it's not disgust, but her own selflessness that's caused her to feel so ashamed that she couldn't save Kyo from the suffering caused by that form. The moment that got me the most was during Kazuma's flashback when he rejected his grandfather.

I need to get to the last episode so I can get some oxygen in the body again.

These last couple episode have been really powerful in animation and in story. I feel as if the anime, even if being cutesy, really led up to this episode. I really didn't expect Tohru's response, however it was a powerful one that spoke volumes to the amount of suffering she's dealt with after being introduced to the family. This anime actually exceeded my expectations.

(watching the dub and the voice acting with the girls could have been better with their delivery and timing)

Cause in his true form Kyo smells really bad. Like kid Akito said, like something dead and rotting.
