Anime News

Now that we’re all quarantined inside our homes, it’s high time to re-watch Fruits Basket season 1 because we’re getting closer to the premiere of season 2! To make us more excited for this upcoming premiere, Funimation has released an English-subtitled version for the newest trailer of Furuba season 2. Check it out here!

Fruits Basket season 2 is set for an April 6 release in Japan, with Funimation streaming the series as it airs there. The new season’s first three episodes will also be screened in select US theaters on March 30 & 31. The first date is dedicated to an English-dubbed screening. The latter date, on the other hand, will be showcasing the episodes in Japanese dub with English subtitles.

Funimation has released a list of cinemas where the screenings will be held. You can find the list here.

It will be remembered that in March 2019, Funimation also held theatrical US screenings for the first 2 episodes of Fruits Basket season 1.

The second season will feature a returning cast. Two new characters have been previously announced: Takuya Eguchi (Takeo Gouda in My Love Story!) will be playing Kakeru Manabe, who will serve as the student council vice-president (minor spoilers ahead) during Yuki’s term as president. Ai Kakuma (Isuzu Sento from Amagi Brilliant Park) will be playing Machi Kuragi, Kakeru’s half-sibling and the student council treasurer. For the English dub, Aaron Dismuke will be voicing Kakeru while Caitlin Glass will be Machi.

The first season of Fruits Basket 2019 aired in Japan on April 5, 2019. Funimation has gained the exclusive rights to stream the series and release it on home video.

The Furuba reboot is produced by TMS Entertainment under the direction of Yoshihide Ibata. The script is penned by Taku Kishimoto, and character designs are done by Masaru Shindo. Series creator Natsuki Takaya is executive supervisor.

Serialized from 1998 to 2006 in Hakusensha’s Hana to Yume magazine, Fruits Basket follows the story of sweet orphan girl Tohru Honda who ends up living with the members of the Soma clan. She is sworn to secrecy when she finds out that the Somas are cursed to turn into zodiac animals when they are hugged by someone of the opposite sex. The first anime adaptation of the series was produced by Studio Deen and aired in 2001.
