Attention, Fruits Basket fans! Funimation is giving you a sneak peek at the first three episodes of Fruits Basket Season 2 in theaters later this month!
Fruits Basket Season 2 premieres April 6 (April 7 in Japan), but thanks to Funimation Films, you may have the opportunity to catch the first three episodes an entire week early, and on the big screen to boot! The highly-anticipated episodes will be shown for two nights only (one subbed, one dubbed) at the end of March.
Fruits Basket, a classic anime with a well-established fandom, was rebooted last year to great success. With a modern look, the new series will adapt the entire manga – unlike the original, which came out while the manga was still being written and only consisted of one season. So fans are extremely excited about the new season, because it will be the first time we see some iconic moments animated!
It’s not just the fans who are excited to see the new adaptation. Manga creator Natsuki Takaya made a statement to Funimation about the upcoming season when the premiere date was announced last week.
To tell the truth, even though I wrote the original story, there are often details that I’ve forgotten (It has been more than ten years since I completed the series),” said Takaya. “That’s why I’m brought to tears when confirming the scenario, and I wonder, “Who wrote such a painful story? It was me.” This keeps happening, so I think I might dehydrate myself from fluid loss if I watch with the addition of video, voices, and music. I’m a little worried about that.
Here’s the summary for season 2:
It’s been almost a year since Tohru started living at Shigure’s house! Though she now has a deeper relationship with each of the Somas, not just Yuki and Kyo, she is concerned about their sinister curse’s true nature. The right path to choose, predetermined destiny…what emotions will arise in Yuki, Kyo and Tohru in the face of the Eternal Banquet? What will be their resolve?
Tickets are now available! The dubbed version is March 30, the subbed March 31.
Fruits Basket Season 2 drops April 6. Funimation streams the English dub, while Crunchyroll carries the subbed version.
