A Rice Ball in a Fruits Basket (第五話, Dai Go Wa) is the fifth episode of Fruits Basket 2001 Anime.
With renovations to her grandfather’s house finally complete, Tohru does her best to adjust to life without Yuki, Shigure, and Kyo - but they may not be able to live without her!
Tohru's grandfather's renovations are done, so Tohru moves back with him. However, her aunt, uncle, and cousin are living there as well. Tohru becomes disheartened, as she no longer feels at home with her family. Kyo and Yuki get Tohru and bring her back to their house. Tohru is now a permanent member in their house.
Tohru is shown remembering when she was given the name 'rice ball' whenever her class had played a game, and in her flashback, an ananimous voice calls out "Rice ball!" and she happily gets out of her chair at long last to join the other children.
