I think episode four is the first one I’ve hole heartedly enjoyed in its entirety. I didn’t watch it looking for hints at what is to come, I enjoyed it moment by moment as the story played out. Unfortunately, my window of opportunity for watching and then reviewing these is getting pushed back, due to the… Continue reading Fruits Basket Episode Four: Violent Affection
If I wasn’t already familiar with this story and where its going I would be considering the three episode drop rule right now. The episode continued on with the drama and odd humor I saw in the previous few episodes. I am again reminded of how much effort it took for me to become invested… Continue reading Fruits Basket Episode Three: The Pickled Plumb
The series is jumping directly into the emotional fray and I have mixed emotions.
Its been a rough year for me so far. I am drowning in school, work is grueling (despite the few hours I work), I’ve been sick on an off consistently and on top of that my grandmother recently passed away. It’s really no wonder I haven’t been blogging, despite promises to the latter. Regardless of… Continue reading Fruits Basket Episode One: A Solid Introduction
I think my title is an appt way to describe how the series ended. I got everything I wanted in this ending, but then….well… Let’s talk about it in a minute. Tada traveled all the way to Europe to see Teresa only to find out that she is not only a princess, but seems to… Continue reading Tada Never Falls in Love Episode 13: they wanted their cake and to eat it too.
It’s off to Larsenberg we go with Tada, his sweetheart Teresa! It only took him six months to actually admit his feelings and get on the plane to go see her. I Teresa, however, has managed to lock her feelings away for Tada and seems very comfortable again in her life as a princess. Which… Continue reading Tada Never Falls in Love Episode 12: Over Sea Heart Break
Teresa and Alec are gone… Bring on the tears. I didn’t expect this. I didn’t expect that the girls would be gone before the series was over, that they’d vanish. I feel like they left with no warning or farewell, just like their friends do. I applaud the writers for making me understand exactly what… Continue reading Tada Never Falls in Love Episode 11: Unspoken Feelings
Wow, this post is a whole three days late, oh well. My crazy weekend work schedule got in the way of me even watching the episode in time. I think I’ll finish out posting my episode reviews for this series on Mondays from now on. Only a few more weeks to go. This episode took… Continue reading Tada Never Falls in Love Episode 10: something is off…
I’ve been there. The moment when your in love with someone, but something is preventing you expressing your feelings. It’s hard and you think it’s the end of the world. Thank goodness God gave us cats. I’ve cried into my own kitty’s fur on many an occasion. Teresa is in love with Tada. Unfortunately she… Continue reading Tada Never Falls In Love Episode 9: First Love, it’s Tough
Sorry everyone! This post is a day later then usual. This is what happens when I do something spontaneous with my mom. I like being spontaneous with her, I regret nothing! Things are definitely starting to enter the end game of this series, I’m starting to feel the bitter sweet sadness the accompanies the knowledge… Continue reading Tada Never Falls in Love Episode 8: Teresa Falls in Love
