Fruits Basket will be completely adapted into a new anime.
Natsuki Takaya’s manga will again reach the small screen, but this time it will tell the full story published between 1999 and 2006.
Next year FunimationNow will exclusively broadcast the new Fruits Basket anime which, unlike its 2001 predecessor, will completely adapt the manga created by Natsuki Takaya.
“We’ve heard the question: ‘Will there ever be a new Fruits Basket season that covers the whole manga?’ in conventions and on social networks for years,” Funimation wrote on his blog announcing that now the manga will actually be carried by complete a series thanks to an alliance of FunimationNow and TMS Entertainment.
The new Fruits Basket anime will be supervised by the director Yoshihide Ibata, while Taka Kishimoto will be responsible for the composition of the series, Yuu Shindou of the character design and Natsuki Takaya will be the executive producer.
Along with the announcement was revealed an image of what will be this new adaptation of the magician, which presents the four main characters of the story including Tohru Honda, who will have the voice of Manaka Iwami.
The first anime of Fruits Basket, was produced by Studio Deen in 2001 and lasted 26 episodes that only reached to adapt 6 volumes of magician that was just finished by Takaya in 2006. This, although the story did not explore all the elements of the original material, left the fans waiting for more.
But now the followers of Fruits Basket will have a new opportunity to follow the adventures of Tohru in the adaptation of 2019 that will feature the voices of Nobunaga Shimazaki as Yuki Sohma, Yuuma Uchida as Kyo Sohma and Yuichi Nakamura as Shigure Sohma in addition to the aforementioned Manaka Iwami in the role of Tohru.
