Fruits Basket English Cast Returns!

The Fruits Basket English cast is returning for the 2019 reboot of the series, announced Funimation on Twitter this weekend.

Funimation revealed through a series of tweets over several days that the main voice cast of the original 2001 anime Fruits Basket will return for the English dub of the 2019 reboot of the show.

Every day, Funimation has been announcing each character’s English voice actor for the show and included interview questions with the actors.

Funimation first revealed Laura Bailey as Tohru Honda, then Eric Vale as Yuki Soma, Jerry Jewell as Kyo Soma, and John Burgmeier as Shigure Soma. You can read their interview graphics below.

On the same day that Funimation started its cast announcements, Caitlyn Glass announced that she would be the ADR Director for the Fruits Basket 2019 reboot.

“I’m so happy to share that I’ll be ADR Directing the new Fruits Basket dub coming in April to FUNimation! It goes w/o saying that this is definitely one #youshouldbewatching!”

Caitlyn has a long history as the ADR Director for over 30 animes, including Free! and Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

Still to be revealed is the Fruits Basket English supporting cast. Though, it’s possible the entire English cast might return.

After eighteen years, the Fruits Basket series is coming back with a new anime adaptation of the original manga by Natsuki Takaya, which ran from 1998 to 2006.

Late last year, Funimation also announced the Japanese cast for the new Fruits Basket. Though, unlike the English dub, the Japanese dub will feature an entirely new cast of voice actors and staff.

Fruits Basket originally aired in 2001 during the summer and fall seasons. The Fruits Basket 2019 reboot airs this April during the spring anime season.
