The new Fruits Basket complete anime wrapped up its first season at the end of last year and home video releases are being pushed out quickly for it. The second season, as we previously knew, is set for the spring 2020 season with an April 7th, 2020 debut. Funimation is planning for a special viewing event but we suspect that’s being canceled, but in the meantime, they’ve brought out the second trailer for the new season with subtitles to let you get into the groove of all the new material coming with the new season.
