I may not watch as much anime as I once did (I went through my own weaboo phase, believe it), but I can name a few titles that don’t fail to make me feel like a high schooler again. Yu Yu Hakusho, Gensoumaden Saiyuki–these are a few of the titles I grew up with, and are so good that I can rewatch them now and feel nothing but happiness that I was able to watch them at all in a time where dial-up internet was the only thing available.
The age of anime CDs and DVDs. The struggle was real.
I’d happily rewatch those titles, and even reread their manga counterparts (which I’ve come to prefer doing, since manga offers a whole new dimension for story character portrayal), but you can only do so much with going through the same storylines more than thrice.
So imagine my utter glee when one of my most fondly remembered, absolute favorite anime titles is coming back–with a sequel!!
Fruits Basket another
Natsuki Takaya, Fruits Basket’s mangaka, will be launching the Fruits Basket another sequel manga on the free “HanaLaLa online” website this September 4.

The story will be set after Honda Tohru has graduated high school, and will be featuring a girl named Sawa who has just entered high school. There’ll be new chapters every Friday on HanaLaLa online, making this a web manga.
Check out the commercial for this new series below!
Takaya-sensei said that people who haven’t seen the original Fruits Basket series will be able to read the sequel as a standalone story, and those who’ve read the manga will get a good laugh.
Considering how much this series already made me laugh (and cry!!), I’m looking forward to meeting Sawa and her two leading men!
