Fruits Basket Songs

The Funimation “Fruits Basket #1 DVD” is done quite well (ignoring the fact that it’s $10 more than “KareKano / His & Her Circumstances” for the same episode count (6)). All soft subs (font is a tiny bit too small IMO), good picture quality, some extras (mainly the Japanese “Making-Of” / Preview / Teaser show). The show is excellent; it sets out to make feel all warm and fuzzy inside and it succeeds very nicely.
But never ever listen to the dubbed opening song! The original is so nice and beautiful… Why bother to ruin it?

    That sux! But I’ll wait =)

    Yeah, when all I could hear were the jap versions I just pretended to sing them in English =P LoL Again, thanx so much and I’ll be waiting with patience ^^

    I love the music, especially the song thats playing when kyos master/dad rips off kyo’s beads in episode 24. BUT I CAN’T FIND IT!!!! ANYWHERE!
    no, not “Secret” that happens before. The song that starts when really profound moments happen? If someone could tell what its name is or where to find it i would be ETERNALLY grateful!!!

    Hmmm..have u tried “Memory” Kaylie? Or “Memory”? Those are a couple of the ones that play when it gets sad or emotional =/

  4. Kayzie

    No but thanks FB, This was more of “You are so toast” then “dude I’m sad” type of senario. This song played RIGHT before Kyo transformed. Less classical in it. It played a few times throughout the series.

    Do you have limewire? I typed in “fruits basket” for the title and 940 results came up. It has to be one of those…

    “Who’s in the forest strolling…” Momiji is adorable! I really want the english song on my ipod, but I can’t find the song ANYWHERE!! Urrh!!

    hi i love fruits basket …and i want to download the opening them (english) but i don’t know how ??? :(………..and is there’s a movie for fruits basket?? all i know there’s a series …

  10. yuna-chan

    i love this anime so much that i was very sad when it ended. I love the song very much that i cried when i hear it. The words that Tohru said really meant something for me. And i love kyo btter than yuki ( i think =.=). Well it is a marvelous anime!!

  11. Jac3624

    I’ve been looking for the same thing. I just can’t seem to find Serenade in english. The jap version is fine and all, but I also want the english version.

    If someone would be willing to help find or upload it I would be very greatful. Until then I’ll keep looking.

  12. Otaku

    I also want the english version of “Serenade.” I managed to find the lyrics to the english version, with which I am quite happy with. I too will also help to look for an mp3 ver of the song. If anyone finds it before I do, please post it! It’s a really pretty song…here are the lyrics. PS, I found it while typing that bit about the world being a cold and lonely place under the name “Delicate” Thanks to the person who had it.

    Serenade aka Delicate

    Something Delicate,
    Special like the love we know
    My fragile heartbeats,
    At times secure at times alone.
    My first treasure
    Took me years to find,
    It’s what I cling to
    When confusion clouds my mind…

    Then You come to me and You smile,
    Suddenly I feel as if everything’s ok.
    Lost in Your smile
    All at once I’m swept away.
    When trouble falls upon me like rain,
    When the world becomes one big cold and lonely place,
    You carry me though,
    From dreary skies the sun breaks through.

    When You’re feeling lost
    And don’t know what to do,
    Just look, You’ll see me
    Calling out to You.
    And when You’re shaking from
    Winter wind upon Your face,
    I’ll hurry towards You
    Ill warm You up with an embrace.

    Baby You can count on me
    Always and forever I’ll stand right next to You.
    Come what may
    I know as one we’ll see it through.
    Love can be a delicate thing,
    True love has a power that’s infinitely real
    Locking the heart through true emotions that You feel…

    I absolutely luv fruits basket,so so sooooooooo much! I dont know about the rest of u but hatori is h-o-t hot!!!!!! even though he is a couple years older than me i still fantasize about him maybe i just lik older guyz, tee hee. still yuki is my forever eternal love that i will love even when i marry and hav kids. maybe ill just become a nun so i wont hav to marry someone other than yuki, @_@sort of kidding! of all the furuba quizzez ive taken all of them say that the sohma guy i should date is yuki.all of us should start a petition to try and convince FUNIMATION (company that showed anime) to make a second season. its worth a shot ANYTHING JUST TO SEE YUKI’S DEAR FACE AND HEAR HIS VOICE. *SIGH* im the monkey but its funny i dont act anything like ritsu (i think). i lov the song!!!! i find myself humming it during school (weird looks from friends who just dont understand).so anyways i will remain a devoted fruits basket fan forever!!!!!!!

    thanks

  18. elrien

    I’ve been looking all over for the English version of Serenade as well and can’t seem to find anything on it. However, I have heard that on the 3rd disc of Fruits Basket there is an Easter Egg which contains the whole song in English. But I don’t own the DVD’s so I can’t check that one. If anyone finds it let me know…

  19. Hayai

    @ elrien:
    Yes, the third disc has an Easter Egg containing the entire Delicate song, but it’s more like background music due to the bloopers that play in between verses. At the end of the song it has Eric Vale’s and Laura Bailey’s original auditions for their respective characters.
    There are two ways to access the Easter Egg. You can either go to the ‘extras’ secton on the menu screen, make sure the ‘character profiles’ option is highlighted, and press left, up, right, down, left, and then enter, OR you can simply go the ‘extras’ screen and enter 10.

    @ Otaku:
    Much thanks for the lyrics.

    I would ttly agree to sign any and all petitions requesting a second season of fruits basket.

  24. Risa

    Erm..I have to say, you’re all beginners in FB. .__.; I mean, do you even know who Tohru ends up with? Or that Yuki ends up with this girl named Machi from the Student Council? Or that Akito is really a girl and she ends up being with Shigure? x_x; Sorry for the spoilers..But, I hate noobs at a manga who think they know everything by reading the first few books and watching the anime.

    hello fellow fruits basket fans!!
    below is the literal translation of the LONG VERSION of the opening song. The first few verses have been changed slightly so they ryhm/make sence, but i dont believe the rest has been translated into rhyming form. Hop ths helps… :S

    English Translation

    I was so happy, you were laughing
    With a smile that melts everything away

    Haru wa mada tookute / tsumetai tsuchi no naka de
    Me fuku toki o matte ta ‘n da

    Spring is still far away, inside the cold earth,
    Waiting for the time to sprout

    Tatoeba kurushii kyou da to shite mo
    Kinou no kizu o nokoshite ite mo
    Shinjitai / kokoro hodo ite yukere to

    For instance, even if today is painful
    And yesterday’s wounds remain
    I want to believe that I can free my heart and go on

    I cannot be reborn
    But I can change as I go on, so
    Let’s stay together always

    Smile only at me and touch me with those fingers
    This simple desire is everlasting

    Yasashiku shitai yo / mou kuyanu you ni
    Nageki no umi mo koete ikou

    I want things to be simple
    Let’s finally get across this sea of mournful sorrow

    Tatoe kurushii kyou da to shite mo
    Itsu ka atatakana omoide ni naru
    Kokoro goto subete nage daseta nara

    For instance, even if today is painful
    Someday it will become a warm memory
    If you leave everything up to your heart

    I understand the meaning our living here
    It is to know the joy of having been born
    Let’s stay together always

    For instance, even if today is painful
    Someday it will become a warm memory
    If you leave everything up to your heart

    I understand the meaning our living here
    It is to know the joy of having been born
    Let’s stay together always

    Does anyone know how i can get the song… i’m not sure what its called, but its sung at various times in the english anime. For example, its hard to hear, but at one point when they’re on the roof (either Kyo telling her about the mountains or on new years) and in the last episode.. it’s lyrics are something like this.

    ‘Thanks and farewell
    We smile and say
    With all of our best
    Given today
    Lalalala
    We say a prayer
    A prayer for all (not sure what this word/phrase is)
    the coming new year’

    its just cute and i really want it xD so if anyone can help me, that would be awesome
