Hello, my name is Tohru Honda, I haven't always lived in a tent. Up until last May I lived with my mom, it was just the two of us. But then the accident...

I know. Just like there are kind places - I know. I know I haven't made it out of this yet. It's not over. It will come back again and again. The crushing injustice will keep harassing me.

I’m grateful to have someone who worries about me and supports me. That’s why, even if I am weak, I want to be someone who doesn’t wallow in their weakness. There were times when I wondered how many people would notice if I disappeared in a crowded place like this. But now, I’m a little different.

Why did it have to turn out this way?! I thought that coming here would make Kisa HAPPY... That's why. But then I go and make her cry. I'm so stupid. I really AM losing points. I'm a no-good, hopeless little brat, brat, brat... I haven't grown up at all. Whenever I'm faced with something I don't like... I take it out on other people.

You just like screwing with me. You just... You have no goddamn idea! You had a mom and dad! Everyone needed you and told you what a great person you were! You just jump over people who're trying harder than you ever did... You couldn't possibly understand how someone like me feels! Little "prince charming" without a care in the world. You've never had to feel what it's like to get nothing... To wish like an idiot, for something you can't have!

Tohru Honda: It must've been very painful, Akito...being told the day you were born, you were going die. It must've been so painful. Akito Sohma: What was!? What would you know about it!?! Tohru Honda: You're right. I can't even imagine how awful it would be to know something like that, or how terrifying. Shigure and Yuki and Kyo I'm sure they feel the same way, and Hatori too. And when you pass away, we'll be sad. We'll be very sad to lose you. And so... Akito Sohma: Heh. Who's going to be sad? Everyone is able to live thanks to me. They all hope I will be gone quickly. I was born in order to die. That's how it was decided. Tohru Honda: But why? Who decided it had to be like that? Akito, right now you're alive aren't you? Akito Sohma: Alive!? You call this being alive, do you?! It's been decided! It's been decided, and they never even asked me!

Tohru Honda: Let’s go home. Please! We have to go home right now! If we don’t, I have a feeling Kyo won’t come back to that house ever again. Kyo Sohma: Just go away! Tohru Honda: No! Kyo Sohma: Don’t you get it?! Tohru Honda: No, I dont. I’m scared. Even though I know that’s your voice, it doesn’t sound like you. You’re in a form I’ve never seen you before and it scares me. But scared or not, I want to understand. If you need to talk, I’ll listen. If you need to be selfish, I’ll let you. I want to help you the way you’ve helped me…If you’re feeling hurt or scared or weak, I want you to tell me so I can face it with you. Because I want to keep living together. I want to eat with you, study with you, worry with you. All of those things… PLEASE… I just want to stay with you, Kyo!

So please, just...cry with me. If there's nothing to be done, at least cry with me for now. Cry like your entire body is screaming. Cry like you're damning everything. Something's been lost, and now we're living life with no guarantees. There's just one fragment of hope, born from the fear of living in this world once again. So I want you...to at least cry. Cry with me. Cry like the first day you were born into this world.

So please, just…cry with me. If there’s nothing to be done, at least cry with me for now. Cry like your entire body is screaming.

I can't explain it to anyone... But on the other side of that door... I'm afraid that she's starting to fall apart. If that happens... No one can bring her back. I just hope that she can find the right person for her. Like Haru is there for me. Someone who will gently open that door. People can't help but be drawn... To someone like her. People who know... How scary it is to be alone... Can't help loving others.

But, isn’t it a blessing to have someone care about you? Someone who worries about your happiness and wants to always be by your side? Ya know, I’d like to think someone cares for me that way, even if that person and I are separated by a huge distance. I find it very reassuring. And it’s amazing to me the way that someone can love another person with their entire heart. ‘Cause after all, doesn’t everybody dream there’s someone destined to be with them?

But now that I have you here, Yuki, there is something I've been dying to ask you: Why did you skip the New Year's Banquet? Why did you think to do such a thing? I've been quite tolerant lately, have I not? And the fact that you would do something like that, you should know it hurts me deeply. Perhaps I need to take some time to re-educate you, in that little room, the one I keep especially for you.

Kazuma Sohma: Tonight. I plan to do it tonight. And whatever happens, I thought I should warn you in advance. Shigure Sohma: I see. So what led you to this decision all of a sudden? Kazuma Sohma: Today, looking at his face, I saw something there I didn't expect to see. I think this girl could open his heart and accept him. The time to act is now, while the opportunity exists, or so I have determined.

Ayame Sohma: I'm sorry, but I had no other choice. Yuki locked the door to his bedroom, so I couldn't sleep in there. Kyo Sohma: Why the Hell didn't you go to Shigure's room like yesterday? Ayame Sohma: Because, if I had, Shigure would have kept me up all night. Shigure Sohma: Hey, uh, not in front of the children, please. Kyo Sohma: Oh, cut it out! Yuki Sohma: Just ignore them.

Arisa Uotani: You DO know, it's bound to happen one day, one of 'em's gonna tell her he likes her. Saki Hanajima: Oh, no, no. I'm afraid I simply could NOT allow my Tohru to take either one of those boys. Arisa Uotani: So, what, are you her mother now? Saki Hanajima: I really meant that half joking. Arisa Uotani: So you were half serious. Saki Hanajima: It's their signals. I can still sense something that troubles me. There are many conflicting emotions hanging like dark clouds around their hearts. I suppose that's true of every person to some extent, but with those two it seems to be rather extreme, and as long as those dark clouds remain I'm not sure they can ever truly share their hearts with another.

If you think of someone’s good qualities as the umeboshi in an onigiri, it’s as if their qualities are stuck to their back! People around the world are like onigiri. Everyone has an umeboshi with a different shape and color and flavor. But because it’s stuck on their back, they might not be able to see their umeboshi. “There’s nothing special about me. I’m just white rice.” [in her head] That’s not true. There is an umeboshi — on your back. [aloud] Maybe the reason people get jealous of each other, is because they can see so clearly the umeboshi on other people’s backs. I can see them, too. I can see them perfectly. There’s an amazing umeboshi on your back, Kyo-kun.

Hatori Sohma: Any idea where Akito and Kureno are off to? Shigure Sohma: Taking a little walk. Hatori Sohma: To see Honda you think? Shigure Sohma: I suppose that is a possibility. When it comes to Tohru, Akito has clearly got a superiority complex. The girl is a threat – why else keep us locked away, stuck in one-on-one meetings?

All these years and that vow is still right here [gestures to his heart]. If I have to lie or manipulate a few people along the way, then so be it. It’s a small price to pay, even if someone gets hurt… I do feel bad about it sometimes though. Mostly, it’s when I’m looking at Tohru. She’s just good, through and through. She helps for those two, but her innocence may be a bit much for me. Sometimes she forces me to realize that mine might be the filthiest soul of all. Granted, I am as dirty as they come. It’s funny but, sometimes, I find myself feeling jealous of you. And I wonder if maybe I’m the one most cursed of us.

I can't stand any other girl getting close to him, whether it's Tohru Honda or the girl who MIGHT join student council or the new fan club president. How can I choose another girl to take my place? I hate them all. All of them. They're enemies, every single one. But, really, the one I hate the most - is myself.

Motoko Minagawa: We - the four of us - we really like Yuki. We love him. Can't you understand how much it hurts us when we see Tohru with him all the time? It's like... it's like she thinks she can have him all to herself - but she can't. Prince Yuki belongs to all of us. Megumi Hanajima: You say that, but if he truly belonged to you, would you be here fighting to hold onto him? You say that you love him, but if you did would you really want to take his friends from him? Would you try to force your will upon him to make yourselves happy without any regard for HIS feelings?

Motoko Minagawa: We – the four of us – we really like Yuki. We love him. Can’t you understand how much it hurts us when

Wadda they need me for? They've got Yuki, don't they? I doubt anyone's gonna miss ME. They're all too busy looking to HIM. That's the way it always is, ever since we were kids. He's always been the smart one, and he knows how to get stuff done, and he's good with people, all that. And everybody around him's always telling him how talented he is and stuff. He doesn't even have to try and they all look up to him. Anyway, it's just like with martial arts. I've been training WAY longer than he has, but he's still better than me.

Kyo Sohma: Of course, I'll beat YOU, too! Yuki Sohma: Don't you ever get tired of saying that? Kyo Sohma: Beating you is my vocation! It's my goal in life! Yuki Sohma: It's so unfair that I keep having to take abuse just because you can't meet your goals. Kyo Sohma: THAT CONDESCENDING ATTITUDE OF YOURS REALLY PISSES ME OFF! Yuki Sohma: And that revolting thought process of yours pisses me off.

Kyo Sohma: Of course, I’ll beat YOU, too!
Yuki Sohma: Don’t you ever get tired of saying that?

Ayame Sohma: Change is inedible. Hatori Sohma: Don't you mean inevitable? Ayame, spitting out a concerning amount of coins: no.

Ayame Sohma: Change is inedible.
Hatori Sohma: Don’t you mean inevitable?
Ayame, spitting out a concerning amount of coins: no.

No. That’s not what I wanted you to say. That’s not it at all. What am I supposed to do when you say something like that to me? What am I, a “mistake”, supposed to do? Where should I go?

No. That’s not what I wanted you to say. That’s not it at all. What am I supposed to do when you say something like that to me? What am I, a “mistake”, supposed to do? Where should I go?

Head Chef: Noooooo! This is inexcusable! I thought I'd seen to it that the young master's cuisine would be served with the hot foods hot and the cold foods cold. Only my complete lack of confidence as a chef could allow such a lukewarm dish to be served to you. I beg your forgivene-e-e-e-e-ess! May I be cut into a thousand pieces for this egregious act! Hostess: No, it's MY fault. I've clearly waited too long to serve your meal. Head Chef: No, it was MY fault! Hostess: It was MY fault! Head Chef: No, it was MINE! Tohru Honda: By any chance are those two... Yuki Sohma: Related? Yes, they're cousins. It's amazing the family resemblance.

Kyo Sohma: Are you kidding me? How’d this even happen? You really suck at cooking, Master! Kazuma Sohma: Yes, I suppose I’ll need more training if I want to make something edible.

Saying 'goodbye' can be a very lonely thing. It's lonely to say goodbye. Very lonely. Partings are the beginnings of new meetings. Beginnings happen because there are endings…Meetings. Beginnings. It's not too late…to believe in them after the fact.

Why did I turn out like this? I want to know why the most. Why…? Why…am I so…? I’m miserable…and so lonely…

However, I can't be happy. I feel I can't have that experience, I can't assume I will have that experience. I'm free, but feeling lonely and disheartened. I hope there's happiness out there. Besides, the future is approaching and waiting for me. In the future, I will be a part of the world. I will finally live my life.

Well, I had a chip on my shoulder back then. I was like a lion that hadn’t been fed. A problem child that was too much for my teachers and parents to handle. I wonder why it’s so easy to “go bad”? Before I knew it, I’d joined “the ladies”. […] We beat people up, got beat up, started fires, got chased by the cops…to be honest, if I told you everything we did, it’d make your hair stand on end. The point is, I was an unrepentant moron. But even so, there was one person I idolized. That was Kyoko-san.

Shigure Sohma: So anyway, I was wondering if you could stop by the house and take a look at Tohru's cut. That is if it isn't a problem. Hatori Sohma: No problem. I'll stop by the house this evening. Shigure Sohma: Hmmm... What's this Hatori? I don't think I ever heard you sound so eager to come over! Could it be you have a secret crush on Tohru? I knew it! You naughty, naughty man, you! Hatori Sohma: No, I was simply too amazed by your stupidity to say anything.

She doesn't speak. She hasn't said a word since right after she started middle school. Not a word. And from what Hatori says, the problem is all in her mind. He said, for some reason, she's locked away all of her words. After she stopped talking, she stopped going to school. And then today, she ran away from home. That's why I went out looking for her. By the time I found her, she had transformed into a tiger.

You don't know what happened. You couldn't. Because you weren't there to see it. So I don't care what you've heard. Nothing about her is monstrous. Nothing. You... You don't know how scared she was that night. So don't try and tell me she wasn't! Her hands were shaking. Her voice was trembling. Her skin was cold to the touch, and her face pale with fear. Even so, she stood her ground and refused to run away from me! That's right! She was terrified, but she didn't run. She stayed! She held onto me the whole time! She must have known that if she let go... I would never return. If I slipped through her hands, I'd be gone. And no one would be able to bring me back. She didn't erase all my pain or offer to solve all of my problems. She didn't fix everything that was broken. But that's not what I needed anyway. Not really. What mattered most was that... she stayed.

You say you "won't do it again." Talking like that... Doesn't it drive you into a corner even more? Saying you "won't do it anymore"... Doesn't solve the problem. Both parties have to understand... WHY you do it.

Momiji Sohma: Hey. Hey, Tohru! You know about the Zodiac thing, right! Tohru Honda: Uh, yes. Momiji Sohma: Then I can hug you! Kyo Sohma: Hold it, lover-boy. Momiji Sohma: But she won't mind if I transform, right? Kyo Sohma: That's not the problem! Think of where we are! Momiji Sohma: Are you hugging Tohru because she's so cute?!

You really mean [that you deserve to be punished]. Is that all people will ever be to you? A way to punish yourself for thoughts that you had as a child? Is this how you’re going to live your entire life?… Alright, then I’m going to pray for you. You’re lonely and whatever may have happened, you shouldn’t have to live like that forever. This world is full of people, and I know that somewhere in it, there is someone who will see you for who you truly are. They’ll see it and they’ll cherish you for it. So please, whoever you are, wherever you are, come to her. If you’re in a country far away, get on a plane. Come to Saki as fast as you can because she deserves to meet you. Please….. I’ll pray for you…there is someone who will see you for who you truly are. They’ll see it and they’ll cherish you for it. I’ll pray… So please… Don’t give up yet…

Yuki Sohma: Yes, but whenever the other kids tried to pick on you, you would go black and chase them around the schoolyard. Hatsuharu Sohma: It's better than Kyo. He would actually beat them half to death.

Yuki Sohma: Yes, but whenever the other kids tried to pick on you, you would go black and chase them around the schoolyard.

Yuki Sohma: "Watch where you step." Oh, that's very good advice coming from the one who tripped FIRST, moron. Kyo Sohma: Hey! Like you're one to talk! We wouldn't be in this mess if you hadn't gotten in my way! The only reason I transformed is 'cause I tripped over YOUR clumsy ass! Yuki Sohma: "Clumsy?" YOU'RE the one who trained all that time in the mountains and you can't even walk down a path. Kyo Sohma: I can too! I survived out here for four months. You wouldn't last two days! You're on my turf now so shut up and pay attention. Ya might learn something!

Yuki Sohma: “Watch where you step.” Oh, that’s very good advice coming from the one who tripped FIRST, moron.

Momiji Sohma: Are you sure? Shigure said it hurt really bad. Hatori Sohma: Yes, well, I did that on purpose. Shigure Sohma: Oh, Ha'ri, you're killing me! Why would you be so cruel? Hatori Sohma: It seemed to be the only way to shut you up at the time.

Momiji Sohma: Are you sure? Shigure said it hurt really bad.
Hatori Sohma: Yes, well, I did that on purpose.
Shigure Sohma: Oh, Ha’ri, you’re killing me!

Shigure Sohma: Tohru's very cute in a sweet sort of way. Hatori Sohma: For some reason when you say that it reeks of something illegal.

Shigure Sohma: Tohru’s very cute in a sweet sort of way.
Hatori Sohma: For some reason when you say that it reeks of something illegal.

Hatsuharu Sohma: If I hadn't had tripped you, you wouldn't have stopped now would you. By the way what I just did was very dangerous. And if it had been anyone but Kyo they probably would have been hurt pretty badly, so don't try it at home. Kyo Sohma: Don't try it here and who are you even talking to?

Hatsuharu Sohma: If I hadn’t had tripped you, you wouldn’t have stopped now would you. By the way what I just did was very dangerous.

Shigure Sohma: Lemme guess; you lost your temper and yelled at her again, right? You know, you shouldn't do that if you're just going to regret it. Not too bright, now is it? Kyo Sohma: Save your breath. I'm just not meant to get along with other people. Period. End of story. Shigure Sohma: Oh, sure. Some people just aren't, but you're not one of them. You lack experience, that's all.

Shigure Sohma: Lemme guess; you lost your temper and yelled at her again, right? You know, you shouldn’t do that if you’re just going to

Kazuma Sohma: It seems things have gone well in my absence. I must admit I was worried, but he surprised me - the expression I saw on his face today. Akito Sohma: Tell me, I've been wondering, don't you think it's time, time we revealed that freak cat's true form? Kazuma Sohma: Yes. I agree. It may be at that. Akito Sohma: I wonder what she'll do when she sees it. I can just imagine the look on her face. She won't be able to stand it. She'll probably never be able to set foot in that place again, and when that happens Yuki will be very sad, won't he? Poor thing.

Kazuma Sohma: It seems things have gone well in my absence. I must admit I was worried, but he surprised me – the expression I

Oh, don't let what Kyo said bother you. You see, he THINKS he's being manly but, really, he doesn't have a clue what true manliness is. A real man would've eaten the chocolates without all this fuss. To refuse a gift, to trample on another person's heart like that, it falls short of being a human being, let alone a man.

Oh, don’t let what Kyo said bother you. You see, he THINKS he’s being manly but, really, he doesn’t have a clue what true manliness

Yuki Sohma: Oh it says not to hold it in your hands or point it at people or buildings. Kyo Sohma: HE'S POINTING IT AT ME!! Hatsuharu Sohma: It's all right. I'm sure you can dodge it, Kyo. I believe in you. Kyo Sohma: DON'T BELIEVE IN ME. Hatsuharu Sohma: Just think of it as a dodge ball with rockets.

Yuki Sohma: Oh it says not to hold it in your hands or point it at people or buildings.

Tohru Honda: So those are for Shigure? Ritsu Sohma: Uh-huh. He asked me to pick them up. He said he just couldn't write without fresh jelly buns. Tohru Honda: Yeah. That sounds like something he'd say. Ritsu and Tohru (in unison): Uh...

Tohru Honda: So those are for Shigure?
Ritsu Sohma: Uh-huh. He asked me to pick them up. He said he just couldn’t write without fresh jelly

I don't believe it. W-why would Akito be here at school? Oh, I never thought I'd have to meet him by myself like this! But I'm surprised; h-he looks so young, and he's handsome, too, almost as handsome as Yuki. Still, this is the same person who hurt Hatori's eye.

I don’t believe it. W-why would Akito be here at school? Oh, I never thought I’d have to meet him by myself like this! But

Tohru Honda: Excuse me. Are you... Akito? Akito Sohma: Yes, I am... Miss Tohru Honda. Tohru Honda: Uh, pleased to meet you. Akito Sohma: You're very polite. I'm glad. You seem to be a good person. And not only that, you're extremely cute. Tohru Honda: Oh no, not really! Akito Sohma: So, you're modest, too. I mean it. You really are cute. I'm sorry I didn't say hello when I saw you at the main house. I tend to be rather shy around strangers. I hope you're not angry. Tohru Honda: Oh no! Not at all! Akito Sohma: Well, that's good. I should introduce myself properly. I'm Akito, head of the Sohma family. I'm pleased to meet you. Tohru Honda: No, no! The pleasure's all mine, really! Akito Sohma: I do hope you and I can be friends from now on... just as you are with Yuki and Kyo.

Tohru Honda: Excuse me. Are you… Akito?
Akito Sohma: Yes, I am… Miss Tohru Honda.
Tohru Honda: Uh, pleased to meet you.

Kyo Sohma: NOW YOU STAY HERE AND SIT STILL! Momiji Sohma: Waahh! Somebody, Kyo hit me! Tohru Honda: Is everything okay? Momiji Sohma: You're Tohru! Right? Tohru Honda? Did I get it right? Tohru Honda: Uh-huh; that's me. Momiji Sohma: Now me! Guess who I am! Tohru Honda: You're Momiji. Momiji Sohma: Ah! You remembered my name! I'm so happy! Tohru, let's be friends, okay? Tohru Honda: Sure.

Kyo Sohma: NOW YOU STAY HERE AND SIT STILL!
Momiji Sohma: Waahh! Somebody, Kyo hit me!
Tohru Honda: Is everything okay?
Momiji Sohma: You’re Tohru! Right? Tohru Honda?

Shigure Sohma: By the way, this is the one and only Tohru Honda. You came to see her today, right? Ayame Sohma: Hmm? ...Oh, yes, that's right! I'm sorry about earlier. I am Yuki's older brother, Ayame. Tohru Honda: Oh, right! Pleased to meet you!

Shigure Sohma: By the way, this is the one and only Tohru Honda. You came to see her today, right?
Ayame Sohma: Hmm? …Oh, yes, that’s

Kakeru Manabe: Why do we have to go around introducing ourselves to all the clubs? It's not like we're idols that have just started out. They know who we are. Yuki Sohma: We have to show how we're here to help them. Kakeru Manabe: We DO help them. We're the School Defence Force that fights against EVIL, you know. Yuki Sohma: Can you stop saying that with a straight face? It makes me nervous.

Kakeru Manabe: Why do we have to go around introducing ourselves to all the clubs? It’s not like we’re idols that have just started out.

Akito Sohma: ...This is ridiculous. Where did you get an idea like that? Hatsuharu Sohma: You were always cold to Rin. If I was always kind to her...then you...were always cold. To Rin. To women. I know how much you hate them! Twice as much as anyone else! You have no problem saying cruel things. You do cruel things. If you're supposed to be our Master...you have to be more-- Akito Sohma: So you realize all that, do you? Interesting. And yet, you tell me things like "I love Rin", right? Even though you knew that I hate Isuzu? You told Isuzu that you love her, didn't you? Even though you knew? Hatsuharu Sohma: ...Where is she? Where? Where is Rin right now? Akito Sohma: You're so obstinate. Look I don't know-- Hatsuharu Sohma: Where is she?! Where did you put her?! Get her out! Akito Sohma: I just told you! - I don't know! You always make everything my fault!

Akito Sohma: …This is ridiculous. Where did you get an idea like that?
Hatsuharu Sohma: You were always cold to Rin. If I was always kind

Akito Sohma: All right. What is it? Hatsuharu Sohma: Why'd you push Rin out a window? Why would you do something like that? Akito Sohma: What? I did...what? I pushed Isuzu? That's news to me. Who told you that? Hatsuharu Sohma: The heavens revealed it. Akito Sohma: Huh? You never change do you? You're as dumb as ever. Hatsuharu Sohma: Don't laugh!! Why would you do that? Were you trying to kill her? Akito Sohma: ...Hmph. You'll believe the heavens, but you won't believe your God. Fine. Let me ask you something, Hatsuharu. Why would you get so angry about Isuzu in the first place? You've always been kind to her. Do you feel sorry for her? Did you feel you couldn't leave her? Maybe it was just pity. Hatsuharu Sohma: Because I love her! And I know you knew that! Don't pretend you didn't! ...Where is she? Where's Rin? You know. Don't you?! You know where she is!

Akito Sohma: All right. What is it?
Hatsuharu Sohma: Why’d you push Rin out a window? Why would you do something like that?
Akito Sohma: What? I

Tohru Honda: I-I didn't know my mom was going to die- Akito Sohma: Silence! Stop talking! Hatori, I want you to erase this girl's memory. Do it now! Hatori! Tohru Honda: I wanted her to live a long time. I wanted her to be here to watch me. Akito Sohma: Stop crying! Stop it, stop crying! Tohru Honda: And I don't know what your family's curse is, but I'm happy. I'm happy that I know you, Akito. And I don't regret meeting you, or anyone, not at all. I wanna know you. Please tell me how you feel. Even if you're bitter or angry or frustrated, that's okay because the important thing now, Akito... You're alive.

Tohru Honda: I-I didn’t know my mom was going to die-
Akito Sohma: Silence! Stop talking! Hatori, I want you to erase this girl’s memory. Do

Kakeru Manabe: Hunh. I kind of want to ask, but I also kinda don't. Do I risk it? Yuki Sohma: Ask. Take the risk. Kakeru Manabe: Fine. What the hell? Yuki Sohma: ....the short version here, is that Machi is being inflexible! Kakeru Manabe: The short version tells me jack... Machi Kuragi: This has nothing to do with you, Manabe! So stay out of this, you SAUCEPAN!

Kakeru Manabe: Hunh. I kind of want to ask, but I also kinda don’t. Do I risk it?
Yuki Sohma: Ask. Take the risk.
Kakeru Manabe: Fine.

Yuki Sohma: Thank you. Machi Kuragi: ...For what? Yuki Sohma: Well, you're taking good care of it! I'm glad. Machi Kuragi: I...I'M NOT TAKING CARE OF IT!! Yuki Sohma: HUH? But...you made a bookmark. Machi Kuragi: Slamming it into books doesn't mean I'm taking care of it! Yuki Sohma: But you're using it because you like it, right? Machi Kuragi: I don't like it! It's big and hard to use - in fact, you can have it back! Yuki Sohma: Don't give it back!!

Yuki Sohma: Thank you.
Machi Kuragi: …For what?
Yuki Sohma: Well, you’re taking good care of it! I’m glad.
Machi Kuragi: I…I’M NOT TAKING CARE OF IT!!

Yuki Sohma: Hey. Is this the maple leaf I gave you? Machi Kuragi: No! Give it back! I was so asleep I even packed that... Yuki Sohma: Oh...maybe I have the wrong leaf. Machi Kuragi: You're wrong! Yuki Sohma: Okay. Sorry. Of course it was a different leaf. Machi Kuragi: ....but you're not...technically wrong. Yuki Sohma: Which is it, Machi? Machi Kuragi: I mean, there isn't any hidden meaning behind it. I just wasn't sure about throwing it away, so I made a bookmark. I made it myself. There's nothing beyond that...

Yuki Sohma: Hey. Is this the maple leaf I gave you?
Machi Kuragi: No! Give it back! I was so asleep I even packed that…

Ayame Sohma: You musn't die, Yuki! The setting sun we watched the day we pledged by the Seine together sparkles like gold in my heart even now! Yuki Sohma: We never saw that! We never pledged! Stop making up past events and put me down! Ayame Sohma: Be strong, Yuki!

Ayame Sohma: You musn’t die, Yuki! The setting sun we watched the day we pledged by the Seine together sparkles like gold in my heart

Yuki Sohma: ...Well...I'm not sure of leaving the two of them alone. Kyo Sohma and Tohru Honda: ? Shigure Sohma: YOU...YOU BEAST! Kyo Sohma: I'm gonna kill you. Shigure Sohma: Not to worry, Tohru-kun! We'll put together a plan to protect you from the evil clutches of fiendish Kyo-kun. Tohru Honda: Ha? Yuki Sohma: Beast. Kyo Sohma: I'm gonna kill you both. Together.

Yuki Sohma: I think I'll go back to the main house for New Year's. Tohru Honda: EH?! Shigure Sohma: Oh, my. Yuki Sohma: Just for one night. I'll come back the evening of New Year's Day. Shigure Sohma: Something up, Yuki-kun? That doesn't sound like you. Did you hit your head? Yuki Sohma: I did not. ...I'll be going. Tohru Honda: All right! Shigure Sohma: Hmm...if you're going to bother going back, you should take your time - stay longer than a night.

Yuki Sohma: I think I’ll go back to the main house for New Year’s.
Tohru Honda: EH?!
Shigure Sohma: Oh, my.
Yuki Sohma: Just for one night. I’ll

Tohru Honda: I...I won't lose! Why hide it? I'm the mean stepsister! Kyo Sohma: Uh, you're not the one being mean. Yuki Sohma: And how old are we turning this year?

Tohru Honda: I…I won’t lose! Why hide it? I’m the mean stepsister!
Kyo Sohma: Uh, you’re not the one being mean.
Yuki Sohma: And how old are

Tohru Honda: Eh...?! Ah! R-r-really?! I'm sorry. I shouldn't have pried! Shigure Sohma: Nah, I'm just pulling your leg. Sorry, sorry. Hatori Sohma: Pay attention to the circumstances before you make such flippant comments.

Tohru Honda: Eh…?! Ah! R-r-really?! I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have pried!
Shigure Sohma: Nah, I’m just pulling your leg. Sorry, sorry.
Hatori Sohma: Pay attention to the

Tohru Honda: I wonder what she came here to do? She seemed to be in so much pain... Shigure Sohma: Hmmm... the truth is... Rin and I are going out.

Tohru Honda: I wonder what she came here to do? She seemed to be in so much pain…
Shigure Sohma: Hmmm… the truth is… Rin and

Shigure Sohma: My God man, you're dense!! You're as dense as an ogre! Dense as lead! If a tack is sharp, you're the thing farthest from it! A man like you has no right to have summer! Pack your bags and leave this place at once! Kyo Sohma: What the hell are you talking about?! Shigure Sohma: The fact that you still don't understand after I've made it so crystal clear is proof that you are an idiot of the highest order! Tohru Honda: Wh-What's the matter? Shigure Sohma: Tohru-kun, it's no use! Kyo-kun is wasted on you. Unlike me, he shows no promise whatsoever! You mustn't get near him! Kyo Sohma: At least I get that I'm really being made fun of!

Shigure Sohma: My God man, you’re dense!! You’re as dense as an ogre! Dense as lead! If a tack is sharp, you’re the thing farthest

Shigure Sohma: At least this summer won't be a complete bust. I can still be happy watching the soap opera unfold. Kyo Sohma: What are you talking about? Shigure Sohma: Wouldn't it be nice if your friendship were to, say...deepen? Kyo Sohma: Uh... still don't know what you're talking about.

Shigure Sohma: At least this summer won’t be a complete bust. I can still be happy watching the soap opera unfold.
Kyo Sohma: What are you

Kagura Sohma: Kyo-kun?! Kyo-kun, dear, what's wrong?! The door closed?! Kyo Sohma: Yeah, it's closed! And it won't ever open again!

Kagura Sohma: Kyo-kun?! Kyo-kun, dear, what’s wrong?! The door closed?!
Kyo Sohma: Yeah, it’s closed! And it won’t ever open again!

Kyo Sohma: Dammit, can't you do anything right? Yuki Sohma: You're the last person I need to hear from right now. Kyo Sohma: What's that supposed to mean?! You tryin' to start something?!

Kyo Sohma: Dammit, can’t you do anything right?
Yuki Sohma: You’re the last person I need to hear from right now.
Kyo Sohma: What’s that supposed to

Kagura Sohma: I'll take his good traits with his bad! Even if he turns into his true form, I'll stand by hi-- Kyo Sohma: That's...enough! Keep talking like that...and I'll never forgive you! Kagura Sohma: WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU'LL NEVER FORGIVE ME?! Kyo Sohma: OWWWWW!

Kagura Sohma: I’ll take his good traits with his bad! Even if he turns into his true form, I’ll stand by hi–
Kyo Sohma: That’s…enough! Keep

Kyo Sohma: Well... what do you want? Tohru Honda: I'm only worried about you, that's all... aren't you going to help at the preparations for the festival? Kyo Sohma: What do they need me for...? They've got Yuki, don't they? I doubt anyone's gonna miss me...

Kyo Sohma: Well… what do you want?
Tohru Honda: I’m only worried about you, that’s all… aren’t you going to help at the preparations for the

Tohru Honda: These cats must really like you a lot! Kyo Sohma: Yeah, don't ask why... they just come out on their own... same for dogs for Shigure, and rats for Yuki... Tohru Honda: It must be fun! Kyo Sohma: HOW THE HELL IS IT FUN?! This one time I was walking on the mountains with Kagura we got surrounded by a whole pack of boars! I thought they were gonna eat us! IT IS NOT FUNNY! Tohru Honda: I'm sorry.

Tohru Honda: These cats must really like you a lot!
Kyo Sohma: Yeah, don’t ask why… they just come out on their own… same for dogs

Principal: I've allowed that color, but I don't remember saying you could have long hair. Have it cut by tomorrow. Ayame Sohma: But Principal... Principal: No! Rules are made to be followed. I'll call the head of your family... Ayame Sohma: I... I come from a royal family. Principal: Huh? Ayame Sohma: I've been hiding it until now, but there's a country to which I must return. Principal: Wh-what? Ayame Sohma: If you must know, my hair has to be long because... it is said that the first king, the honorable Rurubara-sama, received a message when he reached the age of four. It was from Kandora-sama, who illumines the four directions with gold and red light. When Kandora-sama chanted "Ma Rudu Mani," his forehead shone with a blue light and, like a pony struck by a whip, Rurubara-sama's honorable person was liberated. With a wave of warm compassion, like trees that bend in a light breeze, his supple tresses grew... Now, meanwhile, Kashiparuu-sama was in his chambers sleeping peacefully, like a flower waiting to bud, and he gave voice to the pain that was in his heart, "Kampaniiru...!!" "Kampaniiru", in the tongue of my people, means, "Come forth, ocean of God's power; go forth, veneration!" Principal: Uh, errr, um, just - I'm sorry, but I have to go meet with some- Ayame Sohma: I'm not done explaining about Kandora-sama. Principal: THAT'S OKAY!! YOU CAN HAVE LONG HAIR!!!

Principal: I’ve allowed that color, but I don’t remember saying you could have long hair. Have it cut by tomorrow.
Ayame Sohma: But Principal…
Principal: No! Rules

Yuki Sohma: I commend your discipline... you stu... pid... cat. Kyo Sohma: YOU GIRLY MAN! Shigure Sohma: He'll never change...

Yuki Sohma: I commend your discipline… you stu… pid… cat.
Kyo Sohma: YOU GIRLY MAN!
Shigure Sohma: He’ll never change…

Hatsuharu Sohma: Whoa... I don't believe it. Someone just walked in who looks exactly like Yuki. A mystery. Yuki Sohma: It is me. Hatsuharu Sohma: But this is the main house. Yuki Sohma: That's why I snuck in. Hatsuharu Sohma: Peace. You too, Yuki, peace. Yuki Sohma: What was that for? Hatsuharu Sohma: In commemoration of your coming to the main house after such a long time. And for me.

Hatsuharu Sohma: Whoa… I don’t believe it. Someone just walked in who looks exactly like Yuki. A mystery.
Yuki Sohma: It is me.
Hatsuharu Sohma: But this

Tohru, putting other people’s feelings ahead of your own – that’s something you do all the time. I worry about what doing that will do to you. The thing is, if you keep taking on people’s feelings, bearing their burdens, the weight will grow, and grow, and grow. Until one day, I fear that it will crush you… buried beneath other people’s pain, I’d worry you’d lose what makes you you. And your smile would disappear… if it did, if that happened..

Shigure Sohma: At any rate, I’m weak, unsympathetic, and utterly worthless. Essentially I’m the very worst kind of man. Hatori Sohma: You know, what gets to me most about you is that you’re aware of those things and yet you don’t feel the slightest inclination to change any of them.

Shigure Sohma: At any rate, I’m weak, unsympathetic, and utterly worthless. Essentially I’m the very worst kind of man. Hatori Sohma: You know, what gets

Hatori Sohma: Akito has been in bed since the New Year. As usual, it’s emotional, not physical. Seems especially bad though. Shigure Sohma: I think it’s safe to assume that Yuki’s little show of defiance had something to do with it. Have him tend to the patient as his penance. Hatori Sohma: I don’t see that going well. Anyway, aren’t you going to visit Akito? I thought that was why you came today. Shigure Sohma: Oh, I tried! No admittance. I did get an earful though. I guess my attitude leaves something to be desired. Akito Sohma: You bastard! Yuki was absolutely horrible to me! And you didn’t come to see how I was doing? Why are you always like that – selfish and stupid? Why don’t you ever choose to put me first for once? Shigure Sohma: You’re one to talk. Seems to me, you’re the one who chose Kureno. Hatori Sohma: Akito didn’t choose anybody. Everyone has people they’re closer to than others. Even the God can play favorites.

Hatori Sohma: Akito has been in bed since the New Year. As usual, it’s emotional, not physical. Seems especially bad though.
Shigure Sohma: I think it’s

Akito, my mom, even Kyo – when things go wrong, I blame everyone except myself. I have flaws, weakness. I need to accept that they exist and recognize them for what they are instead of denying them or I will always be an idiot.

Akito, I’ve been thinking: I guess I forgive you too maybe that is the wrong word. I’m sick of blaming others, so I’m done. Truth is, if I keep on shifting the blame, then I’ll never change… and I want to.

Saki Hanajima: I know why you have come: clearly you’re here to ask for my sister’s hand in marriage. Kyo Sohma: WHAT?! NO WAY! I’m not! Are you crazy? Classmate: Well sir, you did come here to find a wife, so she’s not wrong! Tohru Honda: Um.. sister? Kyo Sohma: Uh-wait! No! That’s not why I’m here! Seriously! Saki Hanajima: Then… you came for me? How awful. Kyo Sohma: Hey, it’s not like I’m happy about it either! Saki Hanajima: Well Prince, what is it that you want? Kyo Sohma: Why not just tell me what the hell you want? Saki Hanajima: Someday, will you admit the truth? Or will you keep deceiving yourself forever? Will you stay as you are: locked away in your palace alone and isolated until the day you die? Kyo Sohma: So what if I do? It’s not like it hurts anyone else but me. Why does it matter if I choose to– Tohru Honda: NO PLEASE! I don’t want that!! I–I…. OH my, I’m so sorry for interrupting. Please forget I said anything. I–I don’t know what I’m talking about! Ignore me and just continue on with the story!

Saki Hanajima: I know why you have come: clearly you’re here to ask for my sister’s hand in marriage.
Kyo Sohma: WHAT?! NO WAY! I’m not!

That’s what you want to see, right? Because if he’s not as awful as you think, then you wouldn’t have anyone to hate.

That’s what you want to see, right? Because if he’s not as awful as you think, then you wouldn’t have anyone to hate.

Disgusting. He’s had his hands all over it. It’s not mine anymore. I don’t want that thing, not if he’s touched it. Who cares anyway… it’s just a hat.

Disgusting. He’s had his hands all over it. It’s not mine anymore. I don’t want that thing, not if he’s touched it. Who cares anyway…

I couldn’t help it but cry. Something I couldn’t name, from deep, deep, deep in my chest was crying out: I wanted to see you. I didn’t want to see you. I want to embrace you. I want to escape. I love you. I hate you.

I couldn’t help it but cry. Something I couldn’t name, from deep, deep, deep in my chest was crying out:
I wanted to see you.

Kakeru Manabe: Guess so. Yuki Sohma: And maybe, try to re-button your shirt. Kakeru Manabe: Nah, it doesn’t have to be buttoned perfectly. It’s good enough the way it is so you might as well leave it. Yuki Sohma: Uh, good enough? What do you mean? Kakeru Manabe: Exactly what I said? Here, Yun-Yun! Check me out! How does it look? Yuki Sohma: AWFUL! Kakeru Manabe: Oh! That was brutal! Yuki Sohma: C’mon! You look goofy! Kakeru Manabe: Yea! There you go: sometimes you just got to laugh it off! Accept that there is only so much you can do and then let it go!

Kakeru Manabe: Guess so.
Yuki Sohma: And maybe, try to re-button your shirt.
Kakeru Manabe: Nah, it doesn’t have to be buttoned perfectly. It’s good enough the

Yuki Sohma: You can’t stand on your own. Your strength alone isn’t enough. Shigure Sohma: Sometimes, you have to lean on others. What you do next – that’s what matters. Do you keep on relying on somebody else to take care of you? Or – Yuki Sohma: As different as we might be, I realized that there was at least one way in which Rin and I were similar. We were yearning for the same thing.

Yuki Sohma: You can’t stand on your own. Your strength alone isn’t enough.
Shigure Sohma: Sometimes, you have to lean on others. What you do next

Hatori Sohma: It was you… she came here to talk to you, didn’t she..? Shigure Sohma: Yes, she did. Rin is on a mission and there is no dissuading her. The girl won’t rest until she’s found a way to break our curse. By herself, she drops by every so often because she suspects I know of one. Though, I assure you that I don’t. Hatori Sohma: Ending the curse? That’s absurd. Shigure Sohma: Of course. It’s a ridiculous idea, right? But Doc, is it really?

Hatori Sohma: It was you… she came here to talk to you, didn’t she..?
Shigure Sohma: Yes, she did. Rin is on a mission and there

Here I am, clinging to you! Powerless, completely terrified! I’m weak, so weak! I’m sorry! I’m lost! I just don’t know what to do anymore. I don’t know! I can’t do anything – not like this! Not on my own!

Here I am, clinging to you! Powerless, completely terrified! I’m weak, so weak! I’m sorry! I’m lost! I just don’t know what to do anymore.

Kakeru Manabe: Let’s say that did happen – that I turn out to be that kind of guy… Then what would you do? Yuki Sohma: Then we wouldn’t be friends. Kakeru Manabe: Not… friends? Yuki Sohma: Where did that lame threat come from?! I’m not some snotty little kid on the playground! I sound like an idiot! He’s gonna make fun of me, for sure! Wait! That’s not what I meant!! Kakeru Manabe: What?! You can’t go around saying you won’t be friends with people! That’s totally crossing the line! Think about all we’d be missing. We haven’t even had the chance to discuss our taste in erotica? Yuki Sohma: Wha–.. That.. worked?

Kakeru Manabe: Let’s say that did happen – that I turn out to be that kind of guy… Then what would you do?
Yuki Sohma: Then

If you like her that’s your business. And if she likes you back, that’s her business. But I don’t have any right to interfere. But, if you get close to her as some kind of joke or chase after her simply out of idle curiosity, then you’ll be making it my business. If you hurt her, I won’t forgive you. Ever. Do you understand? That’s something I could never forgive.

If you like her that’s your business. And if she likes you back, that’s her business. But I don’t have any right to interfere. But,

Thank you. I can never tell for sure how much of me you see: my cowardice, my resolve. I think you probably see both. And no matter what, you keep smiling quietly for me. You’re so precious to me, even now.

Thank you. I can never tell for sure how much of me you see: my cowardice, my resolve. I think you probably see both. And

Tohru Honda: Okay, I’m done now. Go on, do it. Kureno Sohma: Oh! I uh- I don’t have handcuffs on me. Sorry! It’s okay. I’ll give you a pass. There’s someone here who’s worried about you. Now, go on back. Tohru Honda: Um, Kureno...

Tohru Honda: Okay, I’m done now. Go on, do it.

Mom, I’m real, a person. A living part of this world, not just a prop. But being part of the world means putting in effort. And that’s what I intend to do – to try. I’m well aware the result may not be something that you appreciate or agree with but at least it’ll be something I can be proud of. So please, don’t make these decisions for me. Don’t decide what my life is going to be before I’ve even begun it! I plan on going to college but I’ll choose the schools I’ll be applying to, not you.

Mom, I’m real, a person. A living part of this world, not just a prop. But being part of the world means putting in effort.

The truth is I envy you. You’re so sure, so completely certain of what you feel. You don’t waver or hesitate like I do – heart broken and alone yet you still…

There’s no logic involved when it comes to love. It doesn’t matter what your brain says. Once your heart latches on to someone, then it’s too late – they’re all you can think about.

Shigure Sohma: Ah, to be young like you people again: clumsily making your way through life, struggling so hard to keep your head above water even though you’d float if you’d just relax. Hatsuharu Sohma: Except you only figure that out by struggling so long and so hard you can’t fight it anymore … Shigure Sohma: Then go forth and struggle Haru… you were right before, it’s not time to float yet. Keep struggling for all that you’re worth. Isn’t that your job after all? Young people were meant to fight.

Shigure Sohma: Ah, to be young like you people again: clumsily making your way through life, struggling so hard to keep your head above water

So what? I look unhappy? Is that what you do: look around to see who is smiling, and judge the people who aren’t? You gauge everyone’s happiness to see who’s losing? Is that your idea of a good time? Does it entertain you?! Does it make you happy?! I constantly compare myself to other people. Sometimes it feels like the inferiority will swallow me until I disappear completely. Looking at him, so cool and confident, a voice in my head whispers that maybe he would be a better president. It’s so hard not to just run away when that voice follows me everywhere I go. The most difficult person of all is me. Turns out I do have a villain to fight – myself. The enemy that I should be focusing on is the one that I carry inside.

So what? I look unhappy? Is that what you do: look around to see who is smiling, and judge the people who aren’t? You gauge

When Master Kazuma showed Kyo fireworks, it wasn’t to prepare him for a future spent locked away in a cage. And when Yuki continues to fight, it’s not because he wants to return to the Sohma estate. I think they all have their own idea of what the future might bring, if only they had the freedom to strive for it – but they hold back. And if it’s the curse that’s restraining them, I want to break it. I’m probably in over my head – it’s easier to say you’ll protect someone and harder to do it. I have to try though. I have to do whatever I can because if it means seeing them set free, seeing them laugh and cry with their whole hearts, then I don’t care about being punished! I want to break the curse…

When Master Kazuma showed Kyo fireworks, it wasn’t to prepare him for a future spent locked away in a cage. And when Yuki continues to

I love you. I don’t want to take anything else from you. Or trample the hope you offer me. I’d dream that we would be together forever. Somewhere far from here… But not anymore… No, I’ll stop hoping that I will make you mine someday because I know I can’t. But please, at least stay by my side for the time I have left.

I love you. I don’t want to take anything else from you. Or trample the hope you offer me. I’d dream that we would be

Why didn’t my mom kill me instead of herself? She would’ve been doing a world a favor. So why am I still alive? Why am I still breathing in a world where I don’t deserve to be a part of? … And even now, I still look for Tohru… Plenty of people will reject me but just as many will reach out a hand…. Even though she’ll never come back, I couldn’t keep it.

Why didn’t my mom kill me instead of herself? She would’ve been doing a world a favor. So why am I still alive? Why am

Kagura Sohma: Isuzu? Are you going somewhere? I thought we could hang out! Oh, I know! The vacation house! That’s where everybody is at right now! Yun-chan is there, and Shi-chan, Hari-chan too! And, most importantly above all, my sweet Kyo! Plus, if you go, you can finally have the chance to- Isuzu Sohma: Kagura, how much longer are you going to go around playing at love? It makes me cringe. Kagura Sohma: Playing? Why would you say that? Isuzu Sohma: Because... It’s true, isn’t it?
