Ep. 19, Spoiler Since I was born in the year of the Monkey, I was super curious to see when the Zodiac Monkey would appear in Fruits Basket. Though I was surprised at first, it quickly became apparent that I was going to love Ritsu. Ritsu made me laugh so much during his first appearance, but it was so interesting to see how Mitsuru and Ritsu related to each other. I wouldn't be surprised if there's a sort of chemistry developing between the two at the end.
