Episode 18 – Basket Full of Trauma

It’s anime time this week, not to mention emotionally draining relatable content time. We dive into the latest Fruits Basket anime with our guest Leeanne and share our queerpinions on:

  • The franchise as a whole and our nostalgia for it
  • How our opinions of characters have changed as we’ve matured
  • Which episodes are the best (plus one that’s less successful)
  • Tohru and the show’s handling of her grief

You can also find this episode on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and Podcast Addict. For reference, the Hunter x Hunter beasts we mention in the episode are the Kiriko.

Spoiler and content warning: We’re a relatively NSFW podcast that uses reclaimed homophobic slurs. We spoil the hell out of Fruits Basket (2019) season one, and the show (and our discussion of it) is heavy on trauma and serious topics including death, mourning, bullying, and physical, emotional, mental, and verbal abuse (including abuse of small children).
