What To Expect in Episode 3 of Fruits Basket Season 3?
Episode 2 delves into Akito and Shigure’s relationship. From the first season itself, we got hints that Shigure is not just the goofy, carefree writer he portrays himself to be. There’s something more to his character. And it seems he’s even capable of endangering his young cousins and Tohru to get what he wants.
This episode was full of tension between Shigure and Akito. The pair has been involved in a sexual relationship for some time and Shigure claims to be attached to Akito more than anyone. But there’s a hint of selfishness in the way these two care for each other.
They both hurt the other constantly too, one major example being the revelation in Episode 2 where Shigure tells Akito he slept with her abusive mother just to spite Akito. It’s Akito Shigure desires but he wanted to hurt her as she slept with Kureno.
We always knew the Sohmas are quite the dysfunctional family but these adult themes are really taking the series into progressively darker territory. It only makes sense that Tohru is so overwhelmed with the whole situation. Episode 3 may reveal much more about this twisted relationship between Akito and Shigure.
