Bring on the cheese and the tissues! Fruits Basket gets even more emotional and deep! Hosts Kari Lane, Jaimie Gray and Ollie Drennan breakdown ep 5-8 of the classic show. We meet two more of the Sohma family and get a heartbreaking flashback of Hatori’s lost love. Will Tohru be the one to break the curse? What do you think of Momoji? He is a bit much! Also, these episodes fondly look at friendship and choosing your own family.
