LET’S STAY TOGETHER ITSUMOOOOO~
Just a few weeks more and the re-boot of the classic supernatural romance series Fruits Basket will finally air! Yaaay!
Honestly, I don’t remember much about it since it’s one of the early anime series I watched in childhood. I only remember the main casts’ names and the who the which zodiac animal is. I also remember bits about each of their family dramas, but it’s not all clear anymore.
This is why I’m now excited for the re-boot. Apparently, it’s going to adapt the whole story which the previous adaptation obviously failed to do then as the manga was still ongoing. This means the end is going to be closer to the source and the end will be conclusive! (Maybe we’ll get some OVAs for the sequel, too?)
I read somewhere a long time ago that Takaya Natsuki didn’t like the previous anime adaptation. It’s said that it’s more comedic as compared to how it is in the manga. Based on various stuff I read from fans, the manga has darker themes (questionable pairings, too). It’s more psychological, too, which I’m really eager to see since I haven’t read the manga yet.
Her requests for this new anime is to have a completely new team and to have an art that isn’t much like hers since hers was already old. I really wish to have Okazaki Ritsuko for OP and ED again (I LOVE THE 2001 FURUBA’S THEME SONGS!) though that’s totally impossible now. I still wish we could hear even a mix or an instrumental of For Fruits Basket in this new adaptation, though.
Anyway, here’s the PV for the re-boot that will air this coming April 6:
