Fruits Basket introduced anime for a lot of people, including us. The announcement for the third and most likely final season came after the release of Fruits Basket Season 2 and it got everyone shaken to their cores.
Compared to Fruits Basket’s 2001 adaptation, their more recent one that was released in 2019 is more in line with the manga and fans are living for it.
Plot of Fruits Basket Season 3
The story is about an orphan named Tohru Honda who gets mysteriously connected to the Sohma family. The twist comes in when some of the family members’ “curse” gets exposed – they magically turn into animals once they get hugged by someone of the opposite sex.
The current one that started airing back in 2019 was a “zenpen” meaning that the whole story will be mirrored to the manga. Fruits Basket Season 2 adapted the Furuba ending, a plotline that follows the life of an orphan who gets entangled with a cursed family, which was less-popular spinoff and has been proving that the whole fandom slept on the masterpiece that it is.
The Furuba adaptation has divided Fruits Basket Season 2 into two different cours. A cour is a three-month long airing of a certain part of the show, like a sub-season. The first one explored more of the other characters such as Arisa, Kureno, Haru, Rin, and Hatori while the second one is a bit darker.
