Welcome back to Furuba Fridays, our weekly look at the Fruits Basket Radio Drama created by JesuOtaku. We're now halfway through the current crop of episodes, and following the New Year's celebrations last week, we're kicking off 2014 with one of my favourite episodes.
Jez Senden, who plays Kana Sohma. It's a small but pivotal role in the drama, with many people citing this turn of events as the moment which shifted Fruits Basket into a gradually darker direction. Jez does a wonderful job in capturing the bubbly and caring side of the character, showing the similarities between her and Tohru and thereby explaining Hatori's actions in Episode 10. She endears herself to us so much in such a short space of time that it becomes all the more heartwrenching when her happiness comes to an abrupt end.
I think that's enough heartbreak for one week, so here is Episode 12 in all its glory. Don't forget you can download last week's episode as an mp3 file by following the link below the Blip video. Next week we'll be kicking off Volume 3 on a much more cheerful note, and meeting another member of the Zodiac...
NEXT WEEK: Episode 13 - Running of the Bulls
