TangleCast 59: Fruits Basket and a Place to Belong

Even before this season’s remake, Fruits Basket was firmly set as a special series in anime / manga history, but the 2019 series has been so good that an entirely new generation of fans are now finding the show, including Team FtK. In episode 59 of the TangleCast, David, Peter, and Holly discuss episodes one through nine of the series. Plus, Peter quizzes David and Holly on popular anime of the last couple of seasons, the group talks about how the merits of Pikachu and Happy as pets, and Twwk and Holly go head-to-head in a summer-long competition. Come join us!

David loves fitness. He’s also a musician and a pastor. When he’s not working out, practicing music or doing church work, you can find him watching the latest airing anime or playing some League of Legends. Dystopian sci-fi is his favorite genre. However, maybe the slice of life antics of moe anime girls could have a place in his heart…in an alternative universe.

  1. Lovely episode as always. I may never get around to watching Fruits Basket, but I’m glad I can know more about the series from your in-depth analysis of the show.

  2. Thank you so much always for your feedback and insight. We are encouraged by you! Are you currently watching any anime this season? Or maybe an older anime?

    Judy (@sorincha), MUTUAL: For me it’s a 3-way tie between Ein from Cowboy Bebop, Q-chan from Pet Shop Of Horrors, and Luna from Sailor Moon. I think Ein is one cool data dog, Q-chan is TOTALLY cute, and Luna’s British accent in the English dub version amuses me. ^_^ ^_^
