What Will 'Fruits Basket: Prelude' Be About?

As previously mentioned, Fruits Basket -prelude- is a prequel to the 2019 anime remake of Fruits Basket, and it follows the relationship between Kyoko and Katsuya Honda before their tragic deaths.

The two characters are parents to Tohru Honda, who is the protagonist of the anime series. In the show, Tohru comes to live with the Soma family after the sudden passing of her mother.

Tohru discovers that the family has a secret: 12 of them are members of the Chinese Zodiac, who turn into their respective animal when they are hugged by a member of the opposite sex.

The Soma family are marred by the curse and the hold that family leader Akito holds over them, though, while Zodiac member Kyo struggles with being ostracized as the reincarnation of the Cat.

Fruits Basket had three seasons, which adapted Natsuki Takaya's iconic manga of the same name, and they are available to watch on Crunchyroll in full.

The TV show is the second to adapt the manga as there was also an original 2001 anime adaptation that consisted of 26 episodes.

Fruits Basket -prelude- is written by Taku Kishimoto, who also worked on the 2019 series, Haikyu!!, and Erased.
