ABOUT THE SERIES
Fruits Basket is written and illustrated by Natsuki Takaya and serialized in Hana to Yume between 1998 and 2006. It received a couple of sequels titled Fruits Basket Another and The Three Musketeers Arc. It tells the story of Tohru Honda, an orphaned schoolgirl who becomes involved in the lives of the Soma family.
The manga previously inspired an anime adaptation in 2001, however, it didn’t adapt all of the chapters in the manga. The three-season Fruits Basket anime that began in 2019 completed the manga.
