Its the last day of the year and everyone is doing the annual new years cleaning at the house. Kyo and Yuki are fighting like usual and the girls are also over to the house to help. Once again Shigure is under the gun from his editor to comeplte his latest book that is due by new years. While he is trying to avoid his editor, he ends up breaking the screen door. Again! Meanwhile during the craziness and fixing the screen, Tohru is planning the new years dinner of traditional soba noodles and new years cake. Arisa reminds her that she might want to get to the store to buy what she needs before its too late. Yuki ends up going with her and breaking the news that they wont be home for new years. :c( Instead they will be at the head house since its a family tradition that all family members gather at new years to celebrate.
Tohru hides her disappointment that the boys not being home on the way back from the store. Once they arrive home Shigure is doing everything he can to avoid writing while at the same time pissing his agent off to no ends! Also Saki, who has some strange obsession with cleaning the bathrooms, has left them ummmm… girli-fied shall we say. This of course makes the boys choose to hold it instead of going to the bathroom with all the roses and black lace that she left behind.
Saki finds out that the boys wont be home for new years leaving Tohru home alone. Later, when Shigure trys to get the boys ready to leave for the main house, neither want to go for some reason or another. He ends up trying to get Tohru’s help by explaining the meaning of new years at the main house including the zodiac banquet. Yuki ends up explaining despite his personal reservation against his family, he doesnt want to leave Tohru alone and it only dawns on Kyo then that they would be leaving her alone for the new year. Tohru realizes the importance of the night to the Soma family and encourages them to go. On the way to the head house Saki runs into the boys and trys to guilt them into going back and staying with Tohru. She was able to succeed and the boys race off to make sure that Tohru was ok. When they arrive home they see that Tohru had been crying and realize that they had made the right decision in returning. Shigure ends up having to explain to Akito that the boys will not be present for new years. This does not please Akito at all. Back at the house Tohru, Kyo and Yuki are on top the house ready to make their new years wish with the first rays of light from the rising sun of the new year.
I swear this episode always brings a tear to my eye!
