Tohru flowers

New Fruits Basket chapter discussion thread

Chapter 80: In which a wall comes down.

Rin wakes up after her collapse at Shigure's house to find Tohru caring for her and Hatori waiting to take her to the hospital. She refuses to go, and when she nearly jumps out a window to get away, Shigure and Hatori decide to let her stay where she is for another day or so…I remember being very startled when Tohru fights back during her argument with Rin, esp. since they hardly know each other. Very un-Tohru-like, as is Tohru's moment of intuition that Rin is also trying to break the curse. Unlikely friends, but they already seem to have some gut level understanding of each other. What do you think?
