Welcome to another edition of Furuba Fridays, our weekly excursion into the brilliant Fruits Basket Radio Drama. Following last week's fantastically depressing episode, this week we're kicking off Volume 3 in a more humorous vein. We're also meeting a new member of the Zodiac: Hatsuharu Sohma (Haru for short), voiced gleefully by Liam Cunningham.
Episode 5. There's a lot of foley art and sound effects in this episode, with Kyo bashing into things, people running and getting beaten up, vehicles coming and going, a little bit of choking and even some psychic torment courtesy of Hana. This is also the first of several two-part stories which we will encounter as we progress through Volumes 3 and 4 - the danger being that we could end up with a lot of sound and fury, signifying relatively little.
Episode 2) and the running joke about her reading Shigure's dirty books (Episode 7). But it's not all fun and games, with a teasing little bit of foreshadowing regarding the colour of Kyo's eyes. You'll hear more about that in around a month when I post up an interview with the voices of Kyo and Shigure - suffice to say it has something to do with Kazuma, whom I've mentioned on numerous occasions...
Here then is Episode 13 for all your enjoyment, and hopefully no bad luck thrown in. Don't forget to download last's weeks episode via the link below, and I'll see you next week where we'll round off this two-parter in another Furuba Friday!
NEXT WEEK: Episode 14 - Beast of Burdens
