The official website for the new anime of Natsuki Takaya’s Fruits Basket manga has announced that the anime will get a compilation film titled Fruits Basket -prelude- that will open in Japanese theaters on February 18, 2022. The film will include the previously announced Kyо̄ko and Katsuya’s Story anime that will center on the backstory of Tohru’s parents Kyо̄ko and Katsuya, which the 2019-2021 series did not adapt. The film will also include new scenes — written specifically for the film by Takaya — depicting events from after the television anime’s story.
The 2019-2021 television anime’s main staff at TMS Entertainment and main cast are returning for the film.
The three seasons of the Fruits Basket reboot anime adapted Takaya’s Fruits Basket manga. The adaptation has an entirely new Japanese cast and staff from the previous version, as per Takaya’s request. The anime covers the entire manga’s story.
