Damm being Furuba being compared to dark anime now....

Oh gawd it's no longer the warm and fuzzy anime I thought it was anymore

Could this be a gender issue? Im a dude and purple is a dude.

Well, Furuba is definitely darker than the usual shoujo stuff out there (anime, NOT manga). If you're used to conventional shoujo fluff, Furuba can appear dark. It's definitely not dark in my books though. Dark is reserved for the likes of Jin-Roh, Perfect Blue, Divergence Eve, Kyuuketsuki Miyu, Phantom, Narutaru, and the like. Compared to those, Furuba is watching Doraemon and Jigglypuff going for a stroll in a county fair (which, to be honest, some of Furuba is that damned fluffy).

Princess Tutu is a much better example of shoujo "fluffiness" with dark(er) overtones.

I don't think it was the most satisfying ending in the world, since it left a couple of things in the air, but then so do a lot of anime e.g. FMA. This is especially permissible when you consider the manga wasn't even finished then. The series did a great job, and whilst very episodic and somewhat slice-of-life at times, I felt I got to watch some great characters learn and develop. All that's left to do is to call for a second and third series.

I agree with you on this one. I was just wondering if people thought it bad/unfulfilling etc etc... I found it a bitter sweet lesson to be learned but... I was slightly disappointed because it ended. Maybe not the ending but more the fact there was no more Fruits Basket at all.

I'm a dude too o.O

I don't know, it's just the atmosphere. I've watched darker shoujo series, for sure, like Ayashi no Ceres (I count it as shoujo even though it's not fluffy or anything) and bits of Nana have dark undertones. But... there's something about that last episode of Fruits Basket. It's almost as if there's no hope in it at all - it is an episode just filled with despair. If the whole anime had been like that, then sure, that'd fit fine - but the fluffiness from before doesn't prepare you for it. That's the issue I have with the ending.

Heh, FB anime. Doesn't seem bad in case you haven't read manga. But I don't think I would be able to watch it again. Ending was done quite well though (in my opinion) - better than some other anime adapted from still running manga.

I wholeheartedly recommend reading manga and not watching anime in this case. FB manga is... cute :-) And really interesting and worth of contemplating...
