I can't believe I was reading the last chapter of Fruits Basket!
I can't believe I spent twenty minutes last night taking in the chapter!
It was! It was! It was!
... strangely anticlimatic. ( spoilers ahoy! SAP! )
So now, Fruits Basket
has come to an end. There's no discounting of a future standalone manga volume since it's still somewhat a cash cow even with its declining popularity. Who knows? Maybe we'll get a manga series that follows Akito or one of the other members? Wouldn't that be absolutely fabulous?
Anyways. It's over, it's done, and now I want to get drunk. But I can't. Because I'm at work. And I'd throw all the alcohol up before it made me anything more than tipsy. I HAVE NO TOLERANCE.
Fruits Basket; you've given me a lot these past few years! I watched my favorite characters grow and change and I watched your style weave in and out. You gave us countless characters of interest and you gave me Akito, one of those rare characters who has garnered my love and loyalty to an-almost fanatical level. I'll remember the characters, the history, the relationship, the curse (which I still
don't quite understand!). I'll remember Akito (oh, especially Akito!), Kagura and Momiji and Hatori and Shigure and Kurenoa and Tohru! I'll remember the little girl's tears and the woman's madness. I'll remember the founding of the altar_of_akito
and the eventual slowdown and apathy I had. I'll remember the sexy hand-sliding-up-the-tie move and the fact that Kakashi and Hatori have the same Japanese voice actor. I'll remember the cheery song and Chapter 97. I'll remember Akito's kimono and Akito's smiles.
You gave us vases, curses, porn, angst, wangst, hilarity, love, and too many things to count! I'd give you my kidney, but I think I need that, so I'll give you my heart instead! You know! The metaphorical one that doesn't need an electric pulse to keep going!
... I think it's time for me to get off this computer. ;)

!VIVA FRUITS BASKET!Edit:
Reread and added some more things in! Not so important, but one very important thing about Akito and Shigure.
Okay, I give up. WE NEED A SEQUEL. I GIVE UP MY DIGNITY. I WANT A SEQUEL.
