Fruits Basket Anime Reveals Spinoff About Tohru's Parents

Longtime Fruits Basket fans were met with a bittersweet feeling as the new anime adaptation of Natsuki Takaya's beloved manga came to a close this week. With one ending comes another beginning, though, because the folks behind the anime announced plans for a new spinoff that's centered on Tohru's parents, Kyoko and Katsuya.

This backstory hasn't been covered in the current anime yet, and the spinoff will premiere sometime in 2022 under the fitting title of Kyoko to Katsuya no Monogatari (Kyoko and Katsuya's Story). Beyond that, we don't know anything about the format or duration of the series, so stay tuned for additional details.

Following the finale, the staff released an extended video to celebrate the conclusion and thank fans for watching.



Both Funimation and Crunchyroll streamed the Fruits Basket anime as it aired. Here's how the former describes it:

Tohru Honda thought her life was headed for misfortune when a family tragedy left her living in a tent. When her small home is discovered by the mysterious Soma clan, she suddenly finds herself living with Yuki, Kyo, and Shigure Soma. But she quickly learns their family has a bizarre secret of their own: when hugged by the opposite sex, they turn into the animals of the Zodiac!
