Fruits Basket season 2 episode 13 is up next in the anime manga series. What’s going to happen in the upcoming episode?
Fans who have been waiting for Fruits Basket season 2 episode 13 won’t have to wait long. The new episode is all set to drop next week.
The previous episode left fans with more details on the past of a very minor character, Tohru’s homeroom teacher Mayuko Shiraki. It turns out that she has a backstory that no one expected.
Episode 12 recap
Season 2 episode 12 showed Mayu having her own deep connections to the Sohma family beyond the classroom. She used to date Shigure but deep inside she has feelings for Hatori.
But she could not be with him because she is also best friends with Kana Sohma, Hatori’s former girlfriend.
Sadly, Kana’s happy memories with Hatori was erased after Akito violently disapproved of their marriage proposal.
Mayu has no idea about the Zodiac curse but she is sensing that the Sohma family is hiding something. She just doesn’t know what it is but after Kana’s memories were erased, it was just something unusual.
Kana is now happy with her new husband, but Hatori is miserable. Shigure tried setting up Mayu and Hatori to reconnect but it’s not the same anymore.
Hatori is not the happy man he once used to be and after telling Mayu that, she breaks into tears. Episode 12 was without a doubt emotional but it also had that balance of comic relief to it.
The final scene also teased possible happiness between Hatori and Mayu in the future.
Episode 13 spoilers
Following the events from episode 12, spoilers suggest that episode 13 will shift back to focusing on Tohru’s story.
There was a quick break from the main trio, Tohru, Kyo and Yuki. But next week’s episode will most likely show Tohru worried for Kyo.
She now knows what’s in store for the Sohma family and she’s determined to help Kyo face the future.
As revealed earlier in the season, Kyo will be kept confined after he graduates from high school unless he wins against Akito’s challenge.
Kyo is clearly not physically ready for the challenge but perhaps Tohru can prepare him mentally instead. Tohru may go out of her way to find a way to save Kyo from his fate.
While Tohru thinks of ways to help Kyo, Akito will continue to plot against Tohru. She’s as determined as Tohru to win and keep her out of the Sohma clan.
When will episode 13 be released?
Fruits Basket season 2 episode 13 will be released on Monday, June 29 at 11 a.m. PT in the U.S. It will be available to stream on Funimation and Crunchyroll.
