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:

Very interesting. I know people liked the original and the manga. One work that I enjoyed from the first director Akitaro Daichi was Now and Then Here and There even though that anime is very brutal.

It’s a classic anime and I’m looking forward to re-visit it again and to discover more about it.
Ahh, that’s an anime that has been on my PTW list for a long time now, but I haven’t gotten the chance to watch it. I just checked out his works and I liked a lot of the anime he directed! (Bokura ga Ita, Kaleido Star, KamiHaji, even Prince Mackaroo and Atashin’chi which I liked even if I watched them when I was already in HS.)

Yes. I definitely heard good things about it. Shoujo isn’t my cup of ta, but I understand why people would like it.
Nice! That’s an overlooked series, but don’t watch it if you’re feeling depressed though. It’s like Grave of the Fireflies in that way. That’s cool and I think most of his works would be up your alley. The last thing I saw from him was Animation Runner Kuromi which I also reviewed. However, I was not a fan of Legendz since they imported Shu (the main character of Now and Then Here and There) and put him in some cheesy Pokemon/Digimon-type show with some dragon partner. That was a bad move on Daichi’s part.
