25th episode of Season 1 aired on Friday

The 25th and final Season 1 episode of the new anime of Natsuki Takaya's Fruits Basket manga aired on Friday, and it announced that the second season of the anime will debut in 2020.

This year's 20th issue of Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine reported on Friday that the anime would have an announcement after the 25th episode aired.

The anime premiered in Japan on April 5, and the show's "Season 1" has a total of 25 episodes. 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 new anime has an entirely new Japanese cast and staff, as per Takaya's request. The anime will cover the entire manga's story.

Yoshihide Ibata (Pikaia!!, FLCL Progressive) directing first season at TMS Entertainment. Taku Kishimoto (Silver Spoon, Haikyu!!, 91 Days, Hanebad!) was in charge of series composition. Masaru Shindō (Macross Delta, My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU) drew the character designs. Takaya herself served as executive supervisor.

Ai Ohtsuka performed the show's new opening theme song "Chime," and INTERSECTION performed the new ending theme song "One Step Closer." Beverly performed the first opening theme song "Again," and Vickeblanka performed the first ending theme song "Lucky Ending."
