A Plum on the Back is the seventh episode of Fruits Basket.


A day of fun turns tense when Momiji and Hatori Sohma visit the Cultural Festival. Akito has sent them to the school to check-up on Yuki and the others - the only question is: why?


The school has a cultural festival and Yuki is asked to wear a dress bought by the senior girls, which he feels completely humiliated for wearing it. Kyo tells the students one last time that these were not his cats. During the festival Hatori (Ha'ri) and Momiji Sohma pay them a visit because Yuki missed an appointment with Hatori (because he's a doctor). During the visit Tohru discovers the reason for this unexpected visit; Yuki bronchial tubes are quite weak and as a child he suffered from asthma attacks, though it is getting less severe. Momiji also turns into a rabbit after hugging Tohru, which means he's another member of the zodiac.
