Fruits Basket Launches Official Animal Crossing Island

Published Categorized as Entertainment No Comments on Fruits Basket Launches Official Animal Crossing Island

Fruits Basket is something that is running within the Japanese anime media for a long period of time and obviously, we have nothing to complain about it here. The title of the show describes a popular game that is played in the elementary schools of Japan. The plot of the series is all about Tohru Honda whose mother dies back in a car accident and this is when she decided to move in with her grandfather. But the life does not seem as easy to Tohru because there are no complications. Her folks are pretty unsupportive of her decisions and are pretty unkind to her in general. This is why she decides to move out from here temporarily.

But well, she has nowhere else to go. Her two best friends try to take her to their home but she denies given that it would be like imposing herself on their respective families. Thus, she makes up a tent and starts living on her own. But because of a landslide, her tent gets destroyed. Recently, one of her classmates had moved in beside her place and thus, she decides to live with them. But what happens next is pretty shocking. We will get to the story a bit later in this article, but first, let us go on to discuss the updates regarding the series.

Fruits Basket – Why A New Island?

We surely know that this is not the first time when the creators of Animal Crossing have merged with anime shows in order to create hype around the content. Back in February, the anime Heaven’s Design Team fans witnessed their own themed island to visit. This is when we witnessed that Fruits Basket has also jumped in to follow around with the trend. There is no confirm date regarding when Animal Crossing will have this island available for the fans. Thus, if you are curious regarding it, I advise that you all go on to check it out for yourself before it is too late.

Now, coming back to the story, we see that Tohru has moved into the home of the Sohma Clan on a private island that belongs to them. She does not take a lot of days to come face to face with the fact that there is a very big Chinese curse to this family. What happens is, whenever the people in this family are touched by someone from the opposite gender, they transform into the animals from their Chinese Zodiac. Now, you will have to watch the anime on your own to find out what happens to Tohru as she is trying to find a new life for herself while supporting her own needs.
