The latest episode adapts chapters 17 and 18 of the manga, pretty much being the equivalent of the 2001 anime's 12th episode. Again, nothing major of note was changed or removed here. Here were changes I took notice of for this episode:
-A small scene was removed where one of the students in the classroom retorted in response to Mayuko-sensei saying "pencils down" and Mayuko telling him to shut up under threat of losing points on his exam. -While Tohru was talking about Yuki tutoring her for the exam, there's a removed flashback showing the two studying together, along with Shigure for whatever reason. -When Hanajima mentions that she needs to makeup her exams, there is a removed part where the characters are in stick figure form as a shocked reaction to the revelation. -A brief part where Uotani and another female student question Kyo's ability to prep for the exam was removed. -In the manga, Momiji and Tohru were scrubbing floors at Tohru's workplace instead of a window and table respectively in the anime. Also, there is no appearance from a few of Tohru's co-workers curious who Momiji is at the end of the scene. -Yuki was accompanying Momiji and Tohru home in the manga, instead of still being at home in the anime. -A small scene's removed where Tohru offers to prepare Momiji dinner with Kyo still roughhousing him and Yuki feeling annoyed with all the noise. -During the beginning of the dinner scene, Kyo was still in another room drying himself off from his bath instead of being at the table with everyone else. -The showing of the "Joke Story Collection" book was added for the anime. -The demons depicted in Momiji's story were not depicted as visually magnificent in the manga. - During Momiji's explanation of his reaction to the story's moral, some of the flashback depicting his classmates' reactions to it were removed, as well as Shigure patting Momiji on the head for his admiration of the traveler. -In the scene where Tohru's hanging out clothes the following day, the shirt worn by Momiji had a more elaborate pattern design that was simplified for the anime. -Upon arriving at the hot springs, Yuki and Tohru are shown to be wearing a different set of clothes for the anime. Yuki has his regular Chinese-style clothes in the manga, and Tohru is not wearing a sweater. Plus, Tohru's skirt has a pattern design that was simplified for the anime. -A small scene's removed with the bus driver saying he will be coming to pick Tohru and the boys up tomorrow morning. -The reaction to the mistress' frail welcome to the inn was depicted in stick figures briefly in the manga. -While walking through the inn, there's a removed scene where the mistress commented typically she works behind the scenes and has other help to aid in the inn's operations. But due to Momiji's arrangements, she is tending to things for the day. -While the mistress is explaining why Shigure couldn't make the inn trip, there's a removed bit showing Momiji placing his head on Tohru's shoulder. -Tohru and the boys were all not at a table together in the manga. Also, Momiji had a folded tower on his head at the start of the scene as well. -Kyo is also in the bath when Tohru thinks about Momiji swimming in the hot springs. -When Tohru reacts to learning the mistress' son is the Monkey of the zodiac, the towel on her head fell off in the manga. -The shot shown of the Sohma boys in the men's part of the hot springs following the mistress' outburst was added for the anime. -Momiji and Kyo's banter during the ping pong scene was extended some in the anime. -Tohru and Yuki's scene outside the inn did not take place on a bridge in the manga. -Momiji and Kyo weren't shown to be in the middle of playing ping pong in the anime following Tohru and Yuki's scene. -The design of the quilts on Tohru and Momiji's futons weren't as elaborate in the manga. In addition, the night sky had a full moon instead of a crescent one. -A small portion of the mistress' dialogue while saying farewell to Tohru and the boys got removed from the anime. -In the final scene, Hatsuharu had a different set of clothes he wore in the manga that were a little more elaborate in attire.
Taka : Tohru's trip to the hot springs resort and Momiji's story about the clueless traveler are shown in the latest episode of the series (episode 11). And yeah, the double date never happened in the original anime.
My Japanese listening comprehension is bad or something. I thought in the new anime they specify the protagonist of the traveler story as female. Or maybe I'm mixing up stuff because it seems Momiji is using gender neutral pronouns.
I need to check both old and anime versions
I find the old anime's Tohru thankful scene of cat boy going to hot spring scene cuter.
I thought in the new anime they specify the protagonist of the traveler story as female.
Looks like it according to the translation for the subbed Crunchyroll version. At least for the 2001 anime and Tokyopop's manga translation, the traveler was depicted as male. Then again, this may attributed to how the Japanese language works as their sentence structure typically doesn't have gender-specific pronouns and words for certain scenarios. Gender-specific details in Japanese can be expressed through family relations, speaking style, and certain groups or professions ("certain" as in not all of these have gender-specific terminology in Japanese).
We had a bus scene, a singing scene about frogs and lizards in the hot spring bath between Momiji and Tohru, Tohru passes out in the hot spring
I think she went into again where she had a conversation with the hostess
Oh yeah, we had a cousin who acted like the hostess, when trying to commit seppuku for bringing a cold meal
Momiji's song and Tohru passing out in the hot springs were all added scenes for the anime.
As for the cousin, sounds like you are referring to Ritsu, the hostess' son and the monkey of the zodiac who appears later in the 2001 anime. He should be making an appearance later on in the 2019 series.

Chapters 19 and 20 were adapted for the latest episode of Fruits Basket, pretty much the equivalent of the 2001 anime's 13th episode. Nothing too big was changed here like recent episodes. Here were differences I spotted:
-The shot showing a limo driving up to the front of the school and Tohru noticing it was added for the anime. -In the flashback with Shigure, Tohru and the boys were dressed in casual clothes in the manga instead of their school clothes. -When Arisa reacted to hearing about Haru and Momiji being students at the school, she had lowered her mask while talking in the manga. -While Kyo's thinking about how spacey Tohru is, there were some small things in this part removed that included Kyo recalling his reaction to Tohru not asking for a specific classroom and some schoolgirls in the background swooning over Kyo. -When Kyo hit Momiji for noticing him wearing the girl's uniform, the anime added the additional scene of Kyo shaking Momiji by the collar. -Hatsuharu has different necklace designs in the manga throughout both chapters. Plus, he did not wear a choker as the anime depicted. -A few lines in the exchanges between Tohru and the Sohma boys (before the arrival of the student council) got removed. -When the student council arrive on the scene in the manga, Kyo and Momiji had animal ears up for their respective zodiac animal and the student council members were in silhouette before the president made his introduction. -In the daydream the two female council members had imagining Momiji in a male school uniform, Momiji never said anything. Same situation when the school president imagined Yuki in a girl's uniform. -When Haru dragged the president into the bathroom, the sign for it is on the right side of the doorway in the anime instead of the door. Plus, the President never screamed in reaction to Haru showing his body hair was natural in the manga. -The two female council members didn't say good bye to Momiji in the manga as the president left the scene. -Haru going back to his White mood and recovering from Kyo and Yuki whacking him was depicted a bit more on the exaggerated side in the manga. -There's a brief scene removed showing an exhausted Yuki and Kyo thinking internally that they wish Haru and Momiji were at another school. -The depiction of Momiji's revelation about Akito being on the school premises was different between the anime and manga. Since chapter 19 was about to wrap up during this point in the manga, there was little dialogue expressed after the point where Tohru mentioned Yuki and Kyo being exhausted from Momiji and Haru, other than Momiji revealing that Akito was on the school premises. -A manga scene was removed with Yuki being in a gloomy mood as he walks in the hallway due to learning of Akito's arrival. -The anime depicts the different circumstances where Akito and Tohru exchanged glances with one another when Tohru was at the main Sohma house, with Akito being in a limo passing by instead of observing Tohru through a window as the manga had it. -Yuki noticing Akito and Tohru together outside through a window was added for the anime. -Kyo's glare toward Akito was depicted to look more threatening for the anime. -While Shigure and Hatori are talking, Hatori was smoking a cigarette in the manga. -Chapter 20's conclusion had a scene where Tohru and the boys are discussing what to have for dinner. This got removed for the anime.
Oh shoujo tropes - you got the young boy who appeals to the ladies by wearing women clothing
It's more because Momiji finds the girl's version of the school uniform cuter to wear since he typically wears more lacy and fluffy clothing to reflect his childish personality.
and the school president likes Yuki in women's clothes
Another typical high school trope since Yuki is admired by both male and female students, though it's not clear if the student council president is gay or not.
They removed a cigarette scene? Have we seen anyone smoking in either the old or new Fruits Basket anime?
The new anime, no. Old anime, not sure. As I haven't seen the 2001 series in years, don't recall every little detail from it. But might be interesting to compare the 2001 anime and manga down the line considering Akitaro Daichi's directing choices for the storytelling and tone of the series compared to the newer adaptation.
EDIT: After doing some digging, can confirm Hatori and Shigure are still smokers in the 2001 anime.
Last Edit: Jun 23, 2019 18:19:20 GMT by Old Man Dream: Update on smoking question.
Someday I’ll be gone To somewhere that we belong And God has never played his role 'Cause I’m the one who saves my soul It’s a perfect world we’re longing for
Taka: Got wind of the reasons why, though it doesn't make much sense to me as there have been some recent anime I came across that feature characters still smoking like ACCA, Psycho-Pass, and even One Piece.

The latest episode pretty much adapts Chapters 21 and 22 of the manga, being the equivalent of the 2001 anime's 14th episode. Like recent episodes, nothing too major was changed here. Here were differences I noticed in this episode:
-As Ayame transformed back to human form, there’s a removed bit from the manga where Tohru realizes the relation between Yuki and Ayame. -When Tohru remarks on Ayame looking like an “adult Yuki”, she made another remark in response to him in the manga regarding his long hair. -Ayame and Tohru eat out at a Chinese restaurant instead of a ramen shop in the manga. In addition, the restaurant staff were questioning Ayame’s gender in the manga instead of a pair of customers leaving. -The flashback showing a desperate young Yuki attempting to go to Ayame and being rejected comes later on in chapter 36 of the manga. -Tohru’s analogy about reflecting on things in childhood as an adult had some lines changed for the anime. -Ayame and Tohru’s brief banter about the gyoza served to them was added for the anime. -When Yuki greets Tohru when she returns home, he is barefoot in the manga instead of wearing socks. -The scene at the end of Chapter 21 where Ayame in snake form is asking Shigure where he can sleep was removed for the anime. -Ayame and Shigure’s kimonos worn during breakfast had pattern designs in the manga that were simplified for the anime. -When Ayame remarked he would sleep in Tohru’s room tonight, she was blushing in response to his remark in the manga. In addition, Tohru’s remark on Ayame being at the house for a third day was removed for the anime as well. -While at school, Momiji and Haru wore different clothes in the manga instead of their school uniforms with Momiji being in a short sleeved shirt and shorts, while Haru had a tanktop and shorts while sitting down. Plus while cleaning outside, the stairway Tohru and the boys were on was only a couple long steps and not two flights of steps. -The reaction to what Ayame’s shop does for business is depicted in an exaggerated stick figure style in the manga. -Some of Tohru’s observations of the photo album with the Mabudachi Trio were removed from the anime. -Following Ayame’s speech to the school board and parents in flashback, there is a removed scene in the manga showing board members dragging Ayame out of the room, with Hatori visibly annoyed at the predicament and Ayame remarking he is tough. -Following everyone’s reactions to Ayame’s student council story, there is a removed bit where Shigure comments that Hatori was made the student council president after Ayame’s predicament. -Ayame’s story he tries to tell as an annoyed Yuki yells at him to leave was expanded for the anime. -When Ayame decides to leave upon Hatori’s arrival, there is a removed scene where Hatori is asked by Tohru how he got to the house and he revealed he drove by car. Ayame offers to drive home and Kyo gets irritated at Ayame wanting to suddenly go home when he was adamant on staying. -The photo shown of the Mabudachi Trio as Ayame comments on the qualities that Hatori has and that he lacks was added for the anime. -Tohru reflecting on her mother’s wisdom about coming to terms on admiring some of a person’s qualities was added for the anime.
It seems Tohru is more receptive of things than her clueless self in the anime in regards to sleeping with someone of the opposite sex. Then again, both anime and manga Tohru didn't know about the Haru's true hair color test.
Taka: I was going to comment more. I have to write up my daily reports. I got a 2nd job, it's a temporary job online regarding social media and COVID-19 outreach towards an ethnic community. I woke up at a weird time but I slept more than 10 hours due to feeling

Taka: sick or something. The 2019 manga project and the Best Anime Vice stuff will be posted before the end of November. I will get it done.

Old Man Dream: So.... dragging my heels for another 2.5 weeks before Ralph Breaks the Internet is available on Disney+? Yay!
Nov 25, 2020 3:22:00 GMT
Taka: Really? Disney is slow to add the stuff that already got released. Same goes for DC Universe. Then DC UNiverse got converted into a comic only app. Well, Disney has more success. I think the other streaming sites are trying to hold on for money too.
Nov 25, 2020 3:33:37 GMT
Old Man Dream: Ralph Breaks the Internet is on Netflix. One of the remaining Disney movies that have yet to hit Disney+ because of prior streaming agreements Disney had in place before launching their streaming site.
