Fruits Basket Fan
 
I've been watching this anime Fruits Basket, which is barely heard of. I'd just like to recommend it to anyone looking for a new guy/girl/love anime. It's adorable! So far I've only gotten through about 6 of the episodes, but I already loved it from the first one. ;)

Here's a site with a summary...

I love it! Watch it! :):):)

*There's only 26 episodes and it's easy to find.





...Gee, I sound like a commercial.

I understand how u feel about the show, it is a wonderful series no doubt. We just have to pray for the 2nd season to come soon. Fruits Basket is such an anime that drives people crazy - like u Kakashi Sensei. :D

I love it too! I love it too!! But I like the manga better, I can't wait for the next issue to come out. Not that I'm going to buy it, mind you, I'm just going to snatch it still-warm from my friend's grasp so I can avidly peruse the Kyo-ful goodness. Mmmmm...

Hehe, trueness... but I don't think there's gonna be a second season. :( The last episode was made 12/01 so it's almost two years since the series came to be. :(:(:(:(:(:( Waaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!! :sad::sad::sad::sad: And I can't find a place to get the earlier mangas either. :(:(:( Stupid people... if the world were up to me I'd force them to make the rest of the anime series! ERRR! Stupid people! You can't just STOP a series in the middle of the manga! It just doesn't WORK!

According to the Director of Fruits Basket, there is no second season planned. Fruits Basket is a very subtle series. Takaya Natsuki (the mangaka) has put stuff in the beginning of the manga that is just now (13 volumes later) starting to be of consequence. Alot of really important stuff was left out of the original series, and I don't think they could do justice to a second season because of the things that were left out. Much as I love the series, I think a second season would not live up to expectations.

:(:(:( I dun care. I want a second season!!!

Tomomi 2003-11-21 04:56

I love Fruits Basket too. :D

Unfortunately, there's an interview with the producer and it seems like the company is not going to have the second season. :(

I heard from a friend that the company who produced FB said Shojo's (girls) animes aren't as popular in Japan as Shounen (guys anime) anime. So their isn't going to another season. In Japan second seasons are decided on how popular the series was, It may have been popular else were but their only looking at Japan not the fansub community and the US and other countries that licensed it.

Man,I don't really get it considering how popular Fruits Basket bacame in the US. I mean, Funimation had been sold out of copies for quite sometime you would think at least they could finance a second season. I could just pray and hope, I guess. "Why God? Why?!" <- over-dramatic :heh:

O.K I just finished the series last night, and damn that sucks! I really need to find how the rest of the story turns out! I have a few questions maybe someone can answer.

First of all, I know the anime is licensed. Is the manga licensed as well? If not, does anyone know where to find it?

Also my friend warned me to stay away from Fruits Basket, he had only read the manga and said the art was very ummmm, different. He said every character looks really girly, of course the anime turned out to be very different and I liked the art style. Is the Manga really that different?

Also regardless of if the manga is licensed, does anyone know if there is a place that just gives summaries? I don't really want to read the manga so much as just know what happens to the characters later. Could anyone maybe just give a rundown of how things turn out?

Thanks!

Dorfl 2003-11-26 05:03

The manga was recently licensed by tokyopop. However if it's just translations you're looking for, try http://shadow.randomfandom.org

FinFangFoom 2003-11-26 06:41

Thanks Dorl, it does help.

Zoya 2003-11-26 11:54

Can't really say how things turn out because the series isn't finished yet. The art of the manga is very similar to the anime, but around volume 8 the art changes a bit. I believe I remember seeing a liner note translated in which the mangaka decided to age the characters a little bit to make them look older. Personally, I think it looks alot better later on. The happy flavor of the early volumes fades alot, and takes a darker turn as more information about the curse filters through.

The manga is also very complex compared to the anime. Takaya Natsuki is a pretty devious writer, and events that took place as early as volume 1 are just now starting to unravel. It's like reading a really good detective mystery, with plenty of deciphering to do.

Best place to go for summaries is: http://www.randomfandom.com/fruits-manga.shtml

That page. On the right side. Third picture from the top. Tohru, Kyo and Yuki. Tohru is leaning away from Kyo and towards Yuki. NOOOOOOOOOO!!! Is the mangaka trying to tell us something? *weeps*

I fell asleep on the first episode half-way through, and that was the end of Fruits Basket for me, sorry lol :D

sothis 2003-12-01 20:13

i am really annoyed that funimation never put out a box set for fruits basket... i want to buy the dvds, but keep waiting/hoping for an actual set to get released

kazusa 2003-12-01 22:23

Hm... Fruits Basket the anime wasn't so interesting but I adore the comics *hehe* The thing that bugs me is how the ending's going to be because this one's a very bizarre situation.
