Ep 11 – “Everybody Loves Chocolate” / “Dai Juu Ichi Wa” (第十一話)

On Valentine’s Day, Tohru decides to buy chocolates for Sohma relatives that she had recently met to thank them for everything they’ve done for her. Meanwhile, Kyo has to deal with Kagura and refuses to eat her chocolate. After a month, the high school takes midterm exams. Shortly thereafter, Tohru decides to work overtime, but for unknown reasons. Later in the evening, Momiji comes by the household residence to invite Tohru to a trip to a hot springs resort for White Day, to which Yuki and Kyo would eventually tag along. Shigure gets a phone call from Tohru’s grandfather saying that the fees for her class trip haven’t been paid, and Yuki, Kyo, and Shigure then realized that she used her money earned in order to buy chocolates for everyone. Kyo becomes aggravated, knowing that she could have spent all the money for herself rather than for everyone else. Momiji tells a story of a foolish traveler who seemed too generous and was always tricked. He compares the traveler to Tohru, commenting on how she gives so that everyone can be happy even if she is not.
