Solve Fruits Basket Mysteries in Bookstores Across Japan
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Fans can solve a Fruits Basket themed mystery at 16 bookstores across Japan beginning on August 1. There are two levels of difficulty where players can either help Tohru recover a notebook containing pictures of her late mother or take on the role of Tohru, Yuki, and Kyo's classmate.
The beginner level tasks the player with finding Tohru's lost notebook. The advanced version has the player act as a classmate to the characters and is caught by surprise by Yuki's elder brother Ayame while visiting a camp.
Participants will receive one of three clear files for trying to beginner level. The advanced level includes one of two book covers based on the fictional works by character Shigure.
The Fruits Basket anime premiered in Japan on April 5. Funimation and Crunchyroll are streaming the anime as it airs. Funimation has also licensed the home video rights. Crunchyroll describes the anime's story:
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!
The first season will run for 25 episodes.
