The official site of HanaLaLa online revealed that a sequel to manga Fruits Basket, titled Fruits Basket another, will begin serializing on September 4.
The new series will take place in the same setting, Kaibara High School. It will feature a new female protagonist named Sawa who enrolls at the school.
Fruits Basket is a shoujo manga written and illustrated by Natsuki Takaya. Serialized in Hana to Yume magazine and published by Hakusensha, the series ran for 136 chapters from July 18, 1998 to November 20, 2006. A 26-episode anime adaptation by studio DEEN aired from July 5, 2001 to Dec 27, 2001.
Meh. Basically a rehash. I like it when a mangaka can write different type of stories and not just what they are use to writing. A good example would be the author of fma she made a action series and now she's going a slice of life style for her new series. Variety, that's what a lot of mangaka are lacking.
I'm freaking out this is the best news i've heard all day I can't wait!! This anime was and is my childhood and am thrilled to hear that there will be a sequel... ahhh this is amazing. I should probably start reading the mange while I still have time ^^
i recently re-read the whole manga omg still one of my favorites
i was so excited when i read the topic however it doesn't seem like any of the original characters will appear/have main roles.....
will check it out though
Surprised too. I'm excited but will try not to be too hype for it. Too much expectation can ruin a good thing. Man I can still remember absolutely loving the original back in high school. Lord I feel old.
I have mixed feelings about this :/. Is Takaya just desperate for something right now, or what? If it's still going to be a romance, Momiji's probably the best bet for the new girl.
Either way, I don't think this is necessary. Now this could mean that the original manga will get rescued over here and the sequel could get published out here as well, so... there's that? As well as a possible anime reboot, even though that would mean Takaya will have to be involved as well, and she's reportedly a control freak, so...
