“It’s hard to express how I feel as #FruitsBasket ends. Tears. Longing. Gratitude. This show is a masterpiece…Thanks forever for letting me be part of the magic,” she wrote on Twitter.

Meanwhile, many fans felt it was a bittersweet moment to finally end the anime.

“I cried watching the final seconds. Fruits Basket was the first manga I ever read, so seeing the finale really made me emotional. It was a perfect finale,” one of the fans commented.


“Fruits Basket” is now also considered as the highest rated anime surpassing the “FullMetal Alchemist Brotherhood” (FMAB). Fans are really grateful for its exceptional storyline and shared their heartfelt thoughts.
