Fruits Basket (2019): First Episode Impressions

As someone who watched the Fruits Basket (2001) anime and read the manga when I was in grade five, this reboot brings me a lot of joy. Fruits Basket was easily one of my top 5 anime. The 2001 anime didn’t cover the entire story, which is why this new adaptation is so special to me. Not only does it cover the rest of the story, it also starts from the beginning. Most of the voice actors that voiced the English dub in the 2001 anime have returned to voice their respective characters in the 2019 adaptation. You can read my review on the Fruits Basket (2001) anime in this post.

Synopsis: Tohru Honda’s father passed away when she was young and her mother passed away in a traffic accident. With no family members to take her in, she lives by herself in a tent.

Yuki and Shigure Sohma discover that Tohru is living in a tent and offers her a room in their residence in exchange for meals and cleaning. On the day she moves in, a boy named Kyo Sohma barges in the house and wants to battle Yuki. Attempting to stop the fight, she discovers the Sohma family secret. The 13 members of the family turn into a zodiac animal when hugged by the opposite sex! Yuki turns into a rat, Shigure turns into a dog and Kyo turns into a cat.

Fruits Basket is a really sweet anime. The first thing that stood out to me about this reboot was the art. It’s gorgeous! Natsuki Takaya, the creator of Fruits Basket, had creative control in this anime. She is the Executive Supervisor, so you’ll know that this reboot will stay true to the original manga.

The first episode was stunning to look at and I enjoyed watching the first episode a lot. I’m so excited to watch the rest of this series!

Nails Update

This week’s nails are the taupe colour by Sinful Colors nail polish. Sinful Colors is my favourite nail polish brand right now because it dries fast, lasts long, and it’s very inexpensive. Each bottle costs less than two dollars and in my opinion, their quality is better than the more expensive drug store brands. The downside of Sinful Colors is that they produce very few colours I like.  I do love this colour though. Other brands definitely sell this shade for a more expensive price.

An Instagram follower sent me a message the other week and told me to send him a nail photo. I post things when I feel like it, not because someone asks me to do it. “Demanding” me to do something makes me want to do it less. LOL Bottom line: You can make a suggestion or recommendation, but don’t expect me to do any personal favours. I am not that generous.

Yes –  I am posting a nail photo now but it’s because I want to.
