Fruits Basket Another Sequel Manga Ends With Next Chapter
posted on by Karen Ressler
Manga artist Natsuki Takaya announced on Twitter on Monday that her Fruits Basket Another manga will end with the next chapter. She acknowledged, however, that it is only "tentatively" the final chapter because she would still like to draw one-shots.
The manga is serializing irregularly, and Takaya has not yet announced when the final chapter will debut.
Takaya launched the sequel manga on the free "HanaLaLa online" website in September 2015, but it moved to Hakusensha's Manga Park website and app in August 2017 along with the other HanaLaLa online manga. The second volume shipped on September 20. The third volume will be the final volume.
The manga takes place after Tohru has graduated high school, and it features a girl named Sawa who has just entered high school. When the manga started, Takaya said the main cast (Tohru, Yuki, and Kyo) would not appear in the new series but might be mentioned.
Takaya serialized the original Fruits Basket manga in Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine from 1998-2006. Tokyopop released the manga in English from 2004 to 2009, and Yen Press re-released the manga in 12 updated omnibus volumes beginning in June 2016.
The original manga inspired a television anime adaptation in 2001.
