The Plot: What Will Happen In Fruits Basket Season 3?
Fruits Basket follows a plucky orphan named Tohru Honda, who finds herself entangled with the Sohma family.
The mysterious household hides a big secret: certain members of the household are cursed to turn into animals of the zodiac when hugged by the opposite sex. The Sohmas bow down to the mysterious household head, Akito.
Tohru discovers the family’s secret at the very first episode of this series, and thus begins the moving and epic adventures based around forming meaningful relationships.
Fruits Basket season 2 ended with a couple of bombshells. After getting the DVD of the school drama from Momiji, Kureno chose to show his main secret. He is the Rooster of the zodiac, however, we have never seen him in his avian type before.
He confessed twice, first on the phone to Shigure and in-person with Tohru. Kureno hugged Tohru at the park but did not transform! It turns out his curse has broken, but he has no clue why.
While this could call for a celebration, Kureno can not help but acknowledge that he felt mixed emotions. He is glad he could finally be human but can also be miserable that he could never fly.
We’re anticipating more revelations as the anime series wraps up in season 3. Will the Sohmas figure out the cure to the curse? And if they do, are they willing to take it? Or could they have mixed emotions as Kureno did?
