Welcome to this week's edition of Furuba Fridays, our weekly look at JesuOtaku's brilliant Fruits Basket Radio Drama. We're now a third of the way through the current crop of episodes (how scary is that?) and are gearing up for the school's annual Cultural Festival.
Episode 5 (though again, he won't show up for a while). While it is a very conscious addition on JO's part, it doesn't feel out of place either tonally or narratively, which is perhaps the greatest compliment one can give.
Melle Teich, who voices Hana and also wrote or checked all of Momiji's German dialogue. Considering that she herself doesn't speak German, Majorikku does a very good job with Momiji's bilingual eccentricities.
Heather McDonald does really well in this scene, playing it earnestly but always being one step away from tipping over into slush.
That's all I have to say about this week's episode, so sit back and enjoy Episode 8! Don't forget to download last week's episode at the link below, and join me next week for another Furuba Friday, when the Cultural Festival will be in full swing...
