I'm Different Now (・・・・・俺はもう、違うんだ, Ore wa mō, chigau nda) is the twenty-fifth and final episode of the second season of the Fruits Basket 2019 Anime.
A winter chill lingers in the air as memories revealing some of Kureno's mysterious past and present emerge.
- The episode title is taken from one of Kureno Sohma's lines.
- Chapters 96, 97, and the first two pages for Chapter 98 were adapted for this last episode of the "second season" to cover Kureno's arc.
Anime and Manga Differences
- The rope snapping used to symbolize Kureno's freedom from the Sohma curse was added for the anime.
- There is a cut part of the outside scene with Tohru and her friends where Mayuko yells to them to get back into the building. The girls were inside the school building in the manga after Arisa snaps Tohru out of her recollection from seeing Yuki and Momiji while at Kazuma's.
- Hatori was smoking a cigarette in the manga during his conversation with Shigure.
- The manga had more up-close shots of Kureno's face as he anguished over seeing the DVD of the school play and recalling Arisa.
- Kureno's phone call with Shigure was extended for the anime.
- The manga had a more closer shot of Kureno shown sitting in the park waiting for Tohru, with his face not shown on panel before the sparrows flew off as he approached Tohru.
- A scene from the manga was removed that showed Akito calling out for Kureno as the montage of Kureno's encounter with Tohru and Shigure's words to him during their phone call were revealed.
- The scene where Akito angrily asked the maids to look for Kureno originally played out after Kureno revealed to Tohru he was freed from the curse.
- The anime removed a couple bits where Tohru recalled Kyo and Isuzu's comments about not being able to think of Kureno as one of them.
- While Kureno was talking about his freedom from the curse, a flashback depicting Kureno's observation of several of the cursed members together during the Sohma New Year's ceremony was removed from the anime.
