Fruits Basket Another Manga's 1st 1-Shot Centers on Shiki

Manga ended in Monday, but Takaya will continue drawing 1-shots

The final chapter of Natsuki Takaya's Fruits Basket Another manga revealed on Monday that the first planned one-shot for the manga will focus on Shiki Sōma.

Takaya announced in August that she will continue to draw one-shots for the Fruits Basket Another manga even after it ends.

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.

Yen Press licensed the series and shipped the second volume on November 13.

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, and is inspiring a new television anime with an all-new staff and cast in 2019. Funimation will stream the anime.
