Fruits Basket Prelude Anime Compilation Film Reveals Trailer

A new Fruits Basket -Prelude- trailer has been released!

The official website for the new anime of Natsuki Takaya‘s Fruits Basket manga has started streaming a trailer for the Fruits Basket -Prelude- compilation film.

The new trailer begins with a look at the film’s new prequel content, which tells the story of Kyoko and Katsuya, the parents of the series’ protagonist Tohru Honda. It also previews Ohashi Trio’s theme song, “Niji to Kite” (Rainbow and Kite).


The new movie will provide the first animated adaptation of the two characters’ backstories, which were featured in the manga but had to be cut out of the most recent anime adaptation of the series. Funimation is streaming an English-subtitled version of the promo video.

It has also been revealed that the film will include new scenes — written specifically for the film by Takaya — depicting events from after the television anime’s story. The new trailer ends with Tohru and Kyo holding hands, going home happy.

The film will open in Japan on February 18. While the movie will feature numerous new scenes set before and after the events of the anime series, it will mostly be a compilation film that retells the events of the show. It was also announced that the cast and crew will reprise their roles from the anime.

Miyuki Sawashiro will voice Kyoko Honda and Yoshimasa Hosoya will voice Katsuya Honda. The Blu-ray Disc release of the film will be available on the same day it opens in theaters.

“Fruits Basket tells the story of Tohru Honda, an orphan girl who, after meeting Yuki, Kyo, and Shigure Sohma, learns that thirteen members of the Sohma family are possessed by the animals of the Chinese zodiac and are cursed to turn into their animal forms when they are weak, stressed, or when they are embraced by anyone of the opposite sex that is not possessed by a spirit of the zodiac. As the series progresses, Tohru learns of the hardships and pain faced by the afflicted members of the Sohma family, and through her own generous and loving nature, helps heal their emotional wounds. As she learns more about Yuki, Kyo, and the rest of the mysterious Sohma family, Tohru also learns more about herself and how much others care for her.”

Fruits Basket premiered in 1998 with a hit manga created by writer and artist Natsuki Takaya.
