A Solitary New Year is the ninth episode of Fruits Basket.


Yuki, Kyo, and Shigure return to Sohma House for an exclusive Zodiac Banquet, which means Tohru may have to spend New Year’s Eve alone.


The month of December is near its end, and Tohru and the Sohma boys are getting ready to greet the New Year. Tohru plans a grand holiday dinner, but in the midst of the preparations, she discovers she may only need a table for one.

In this episode the three Sohma's decide to go to the Main House for New Year's, leaving Tohru alone at home. After a run-in with Saki Hanajima on the way, Kyo and Yuki run home, to find Tohru crying over a picture of her mother. They then enjoy the New Year together. Shigure then goes onward to the Main House alone and celebrates with the rest of the family.
