When is Fruits Basket Season 2 update?
Fruits Basket Season 2 update is Tuesday 7 April 2020 at 1:30 AM JST. For most parts of the day, it will still be Monday as the Japanese time zone is way ahead of others. The Spring Anime has already started making their debuts lately and it won’t be a while till all of them release their new seasons. Let’s take a look at Fruits basket Season 2 Episode 1 trailer below!
Fruits Basket Season 2 Trailer and Production
The second season’s production was confirmed immediately after the airing of the 25th episode of fruits basket 2019. So it had been some time since the fans had been waiting for the next official announcement that will bring them closer to the second season.
The one thing that has the fans excited over season 2 is that they will be able to watch the ending of Tohru Honda’s story as it has been a cliff hanger so far. The anime’s story from season 1 was based on the manga, and it has been a while since it has ended its serialization producing a total of 136 chapters within 23 volumes. The anime manga’s writer, Takaya, had revealed that although she had a great time with the manga, the emergence of the new season means going back to the beginning. As a result, Fruits basket 2019 was produced with an entirely different team.
This means that the new anime will be circling around particular plot events and introduce anime-only scenes to blend in the sense of originality and plot development variety. The ending of season 1 saw the adaptation of manga chapters 34 and 35 from volume 6, which covered Kyo’s arc about his true self. This means that season 2 will be a little paced compared to the first one to prevent a lot of episodes, as there is still a lot more to be covered.
FRUITS BASKET CONTINUES! Season 2 has been confirmed for 2020 and will continue to tell the full manga story. Thank you for watching!

Fruits Basket Season 2 Plot
Season 2 of fruits basket will be focusing much on Tohru and the Sohma boys as they seem to suspect that something will be coming as summer approaches. Yuki will be spending much more time with her brother Ayame meanwhile Tohru is looking forward to the upcoming trip. This is what we have picked up from the last moments we watched them so we will be expecting a story development of that nature.
Ayame will be continuing with his designs of the handcrafted items despite Yuki’s despising his fetish designs. So more storylines will still develop around Yuki and Motoko Minagawa, the president of the Prince Yuki fan club as there seems to be developing an intimate relationship between them. Things will heat up when Hiro Sohma starts getting jealous of Tohru and Kisa’s relationship which will only end up in dramatic turn of events.
As summer vacation approaches and Tohru couldn’t wait for the school drama to end, relationship issues could start to become more apparent. Moreover, Momiki’s invitation to Tohru and her friends on a trip to the Sohma family cottage just spells more drama for the group. So with this, season 2 is something one could look more forward to as it is only a matter of time till it arrives.
Fruits Basket Season 2 Episode Count
44 chapters were covered in the first season and 25 episodes where produced in total. Considering that there had been leaks about the total number of episodes of this anime. Although it was not official and the voice actor who had accidentally said this in their interview told people not to take it seriously. 63 episodes were revealed as the leaked information. And since the statement was not retracted or not revealed wither it was true or not, then it could make a good estimation as so far this is all the information presented. So far 44 out of 136 manga chapters have been covered. So season 2 will be continuing from this point on.
