Crunchyroll announced on Friday that Fruits Basket season 2 is being added to the streamer’s upcoming spring 2020 lineup, along with launch dates for several other shows including Tower of God, My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom, Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma, Woodpecker Detective’s Office and more.
Fruits Basket – or at least the current version – is a reboot of the hit 2001 anime directed by Akitaro Daichi. Fans absolutely loved the single season, but, given that were at least 20 more volumes of manga, they craved more. In 2005, Funimation began to feel the same way, calling on fans to fold 1000 paper cranes to help grant a wish. Those cranes were then sent to Studio Deen in a plead for more Fruits Basket. 15 years later, here we are.
Check out the official synopsis below, along with promo art and a trailer. Fruits Basket season 2 airs Saturday, April 6 at 10:30am PDT.
Tohru Honda lives with the Soma clan and helps keep their bizarre secret: when hugged by the opposite sex, they turn into the animals of the Zodiac. But knowing and keeping the secret is only the beginning. What mysteries lie beneath this dark family secret?
