Fruits Basket 3 was a little more involved

Spoiler:

I like how it was apparent pretty early in the episode that Kyo quickly and easily becomes part of the gang whereas Rat-kun always seems to be apart. And how when he's transformed into a rat and walking by the safety bars, it looks like the cage he's describing.

Also the main character is totally going to fall of a cliff at some point, I can feel it

Fruits Basket 3
Spoiler:

-Delinquent friend carries a metal pipe around with her just in case she needs to threaten someone with it Laughing
-the cat being so hotblooded and constantly obsessed with fighting just doesn't work for me for animal personality
-guy's complaining about adorable kittens showing up constantly, but think about the poor rat guy!
-Delinquent perfectly pushes cat's buttons to get him to play cards with them Laughing
-"Winning against you is my mission! My goal!" "Having to deal with that is my annoyance. My misfortune." I LOL'd at that for real
-I got annoyed that she was so excited at the idea of a zodiac 13, because 12 is just so much more dividable and useful number, how can you make a decent astrological system based on 13?!
-the people as rice balls with their pickled plums on their back was a cute little metaphor
-her only purpose in this is to build her harem's self-esteem

The character depth is getting better, the way they're chasing after each other's strengths but you can see the weaknesses in them even at the moment that they're envying them, cat feeling inferior and prickly but the way he wears his heart on his sleeve makes it easy for others to push past that and connect, whereas rat always looks so smooth and admired but it's always at a distance. This show could stand to trust in its ability to "show" a little more and do less telling, it makes it feel more simplistic than it needs to be. There's still too much nothing going and the level of depth/artistry doesn't seem high enough to pull off this much gentle nothingness, so I'm not sure how long I'll stick with it if it doesn't pick up some, but it is likeable somehow, so I'm not quite ready to give up, either.

I've been watching One Punch Man as it's coming out.

Spoiler:
I like the concept behind King's character, so I enjoyed that part of the first episode. The rest, though, just kind of felt like characters I didn't care about setting up future plots that I don't know if I will care about. I found the second episode kind of boring, honestly. It seems like the show is trying to lean towards more dramatic storytelling, but I feel like it should be sticking to the more comedic elements, since that's where I feel like it really shines.

That could just be me, though; I tend to have a pretty strong preference for comedies over dramas.

My boyfriend also wants to watch Mob Psycho 100, so we'll be doing that sometime soon maybe. And when we watch stuff together, it's usually at the rate of 1-2 episodes per week, so it might actually be at a pace for you to keep up, Enail. Wink

I'm down with re-watching Mob Psycho 100 (especially the first season, it's been awhile) if y'all's are

Fruits Basket 4

Spoiler:

That ep was more my style. Psychopath waifu, the wimpiest/most adorable right handed punch ever, and possible feels incoming

Fruits Basket 4
Spoiler:

-the excessively sweet, timid girl suddenly bringing out the extreme cartoon violence Laughing
-and then she doesn't remember beating him up, dual personalities?
-Tohru's happy to add a few women to her harem  Wink wink nudge nudg
-cutesy girl is terrifyingly obsessed (and is already not just planning their marriage, but also his affairs, wtf? Laughing)
- a dark and mysterious "true form," I guess just transforming into a popular house pet isn't angsty enough Wink
-she's exactly like a toddler trying way too hard to make a cat love them in exactly the wrong way, then throwing a tantrum when they get scratched
-the way Tohru's so nice and positive and impressed by everyone and being mean to her just makes her try harder to be nice is starting to be a little too much sweetness for me, characters with no bite whatsoever get boring
-the contrast between Tohru's cautious approach reaching out to Kyo while giving him space to back away and the insane toddler approach, and how he reacts, shows Kyo's cat-ness much better than a lot of what they do. Also, damn, that was such a bad punch it was actually cute!
-Yuki sparkling at the paperboy and sending him sliding out down the street to keep him from seeing the animal tranformation rofl
-that is the most adorable boar possible, it is ridiculous how cute it is
-Tohru's so proud of herself for "figuring out" what the girl's animal is Laughing

This show is pleasant, I could keep watching, but it also just doesn't feel like it's ever really going to be more than what it is by now, I'm not feeling like it's got the kind of 3gatsu potential to make me need to stick with it. And the new character being so over-the-top cutesy yandere feels out of proportion with the comedy sides of the others, it doesn't give me confidence that it's good enough at characters for a show so heavily focused on character development. I'm not 100% set on dropping it yet, but I probably will when I get overloaded once Attack on Titan starts up.

Managed to do another one.

Fruits basket 5
Spoiler:

-while she's busily cooking to act like everything's fine, remembering her mom telling her it's okay to be selfish sometimes
-updating them about everything they need to know that she's been doing, it's kind of sad that her happy harem/family fantasy involves her doing all the work for an entire household, while going to school and working part-time
-Shigure's disapproving look at Yuki for not telling her to stay
-the kid excluding her by not making her a fruit in the basket, but she's just like "onigiri are yummy" and not realizing it was branding her an outsider and she was never going to be called Sad  I guess this show is about her finding the basket where onigiri is a welcomed fruit
-wow, her awful relatives couldn't bother to make sure she had somewhere to live, but they hired a private detective to spy on her to judge her, and using her dead mother as an excuse, they're not playing it subtle about the Cinderella step-family
-the grandad slapped him rofl
-and then he gives her permission to go if she wants to, go half-senile Grandpa!
-"I'm calm as hell" Laughing
-Japan, why didn't you make addresses that actually work to find buildings based on them??
-flicking the guy in the head so hard he falls down
-Kyo echoes her mom telling her it's okay to want things and she immediately starts bawling her eyes out that she wants to go home with them Laughing
-when they both take her hands and suddenly her child self gets called in the fruit basket game and takes their hands
-KICK IN THE FACE "that was your face" Laughing

Predictable but still sweet.

"Predictable but still sweet" is probably a good way to sum up Fruits Basket
