The new Fruits Basket complete anime series is underway and the first season for it has wrapped up with twenty-five episodes. While no season was set for the second season, the official site dropped the news (see the tweet below) that it’ll arrive in 2020. We’ll speculate that it’ll hit the two-cour mark like the first and appear in the spring, giving the production time to work on touching up the first for home video release while also getting work done on the second season.
The English cast includes Laura Bailey as Tohru Honda, Eric Vale as Yuki Soma, Jerry Jewel as Kyo Soma, John Burgmeier as Shigura Soma, Tia Ballard as Kagura Soma, Mikaela Krantz as Momiji Krantz, Justin Cook as Hatsuharu Soma, Kent Williams as Hatori Soma, Elizabeth Maxwell as Arisa Uotani, Colleen Clinkenbeard has come on as Akito Soma, Christopher R. Sabat as Ayame Soma, and Jad Saxton as Saki Hanajima
The new series has Yoshihide Ibata directing based on the series composition by Taku Kishimoto. Masaru Shindo is handling the character designs with TMS Entertainment handling the production.
