Fruits Basket The Final Gets Release Date, New Visual

The remake anime of Fruits Basket is drawing close to the end. It was just announced that the last season (referred to as Fruits Basket the Final) will debut on Japanese TV in April. In addition to this announcement, a new visual was released.

So far 50 episodes of the remake have aired, and it’s being made available to Americans through Funimation and Crunchyroll. Funimation also shared a note from original creator Natsuki Takaya:

“After two seasons, the Fruits Basket anime is about to enter its final chapter.

“I just… Wow. This must have been ton of work for the staff.

“I have personal experience with the pressure to keep running, and with what it feels like to encounter all sorts of difficulties along the way, so I’m just full of gratitude and appreciation for everyone involved in the production.

“And to all of you readers and viewers, I’ll be honored if you stick with these characters and see which path each of them lands on in the end—as well as where those paths lead.

I hope you’ll enjoy all the final season to the very end.”
