Fruits Basket is one of the very few Shoujo anime I like, if not the only one. Ok, definitely not the only one but my favorite one for sure. The third season is so awesome that at the time of writing, it dethroned FMA Brotherhood from the #1 potion on MyAnimeList. If you don’t know, FMA Brotherhood held the #1 position for almost a decade.
This is for a good reason of course. It actually has a surprisingly good plot and few really good characters. I really like the character development in Fruits Basket.
We are not here for that though, so let us speak about the new anime adaptations
What do we know about the new anime?
This new adaptation was announced at the end of the final/third season of Fruits Basket. It will adapt parts of volume 16 of the manga. The new anime is titled Kyouko to Katsuya no Monogatari or The story of Kyouko and Katsuya.
As the name suggests, the story will focus on Katsuya and Kyouko. Kyouko and Katsuya are the parents of our dear Honda Tohru. So it will be a sort of sequel to the main series. The anime will come out sometime next year. Sawhiro Miyuki and Hosoya Yoshimasa are reprising their roles as Kyouko and Katsuya respectively. Now moving on to
This should be great. I have not read the manga but, I think this anime will be really cool. It shouldn’t be too long either since it’s not even adapting a full volume, just parts of the 16th volume of the manga. Pretty sure it will make us cry a lot once again.
What’s different this time is, it will be a proper love story this time instead of a reverse harem. So I am really looking forward to it. As for the release date, I’d expect it to show up somewhere around spring or summer of next year but, that’s my speculation and I could be wrong.
I don’t expect the animations to be too good. But then again, animations are not the reason we love Fruits Basket right? The animations are functional. They aren’t too bad just average. I am really looking forward to this.
That is all I have for now. Let me know your thoughts down in the comments. I really wasn’t expecting the 3rd season to blow crazily like this but then again, it is really good. I highly recommend Fruits Basket if you haven’t watched it already. It is a total of 63 episodes (25+25+13) but, do not let the episode count discourage you from watching this anime. You’ll be missing out on something really good.
As always, stay tuned for more content, and do not forget to check our awesome art section. I am really looking forward to this anime. If anyone knows how many chapters this arc covers please let me know. With that said, I will take my leave here. See ya guys!!
