posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The first chapter shipped in the magazine's combined 10th and 11th issues on Saturday, the second chapter will ship in the 13th issue on June 5, and the third chapter will ship in the 15th issue on July 5. The three chapters will center on "The Mabudachi Trio" (Hatori, Shigure, and Ayame; known as "The Three Musketeers" in English) from the original manga.
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.
The manga's new anime adaptation premiered in Japan on April 5. Funimation is streaming the series on FunimationNow, and has also licensed the anime for home video release. Crunchyroll is also streaming the series.
Takaya launched a sequel manga titled Fruits Basket Another 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. Takaya ended the manga last December but also plans to draw one-shots for the manga afterward. The third and final volume shipped on March 20 in Japan. Yen Press is also publishing the sequel manga.
