If you’re suffering from withdrawal after the season finale of Fruits Basket, you are in luck. It was recently announced that the wildly-popular anime is getting a second season, and it is set to release in April 2020.
The same voice actors and creative team will be returning to continue their work on the popular anime. In fact, the team released a seven-minute digest video/trailer for the new season of Fruits Basket. This video highlights the most critical moments from the first 25-episode season as a sort of recap video.
For those not in the know, here is the Fruits Basket synopsis:
Tohru Honda thought her life was headed for misfortune when a family tragedy left her living in a tent. When her small home is discovered by the mysterious Soma clan, she suddenly finds herself living with Yuki, Kyo, and Shigure Soma. But she quickly learns their family has a bizarre secret of their own: when hugged by the opposite sex, they turn into the animals of the Zodiac!
An anime of the same name released in 2001, but the series received a face-lift last year. Much to the delight of fans, this series seemed to be more closely tied to the story told in the Fruits Basket manga. The manga was released serially in Japan from 1998 to 2006.
Fruits Basket season two will be available starting in April 2020, but the complete first season can be found on Crunchyroll and Funimation Now. The first season ran from April to October of 2019 and was extremely well-received by fans. When season two releases, fans may watch the anime’s weekly release subbed on Crunchyroll and dubbed on Funimation.
