One of the most exciting things about the upcoming Spring 2019 anime season is the long-awaited reboot of Fruits Basket. The original manga by Natsuki Takaya tells a complex and passionate tale about a teenage girl named who finds herself embroiled in the affairs of the mysterious and cursed Sohma family.
A third trailer for the upcoming series dropped on March 16th, and it reveals more than any of the previous trailers did. Not only does the main cast speak, but so does a huge portion of the rest of the cast. New members of the Sohma family who appear include Kagura, Momiji, Hatori, Ayame, Haru, and Akito. Tohru’s mother Kyoko and her best friends Hana and Uo also appear.
The trailer isn’t the only Fruits Basket news to come out. A new key visual has been unveiled, and it’s as beautiful as anything else that’s been revealed so far.
What’s more, the theme songs have been announced as well. For the first season, the OP will be Again!! by Beverly, while the ED will be Lucky Ending by Vickeblanka. I still have my fingers crossed for a Maaya Nakamoto theme in future seasons, but these look poised to be fantastic.
The new series will be streaming on Funimation Now starting on April 5th.
