The original anime aired in 2001 with one season of 26 episodes. After over 18 years, the series came back in 2019 as a 25 episode reboot series. The reboot also brought back all the original English voice cast.
Natsuki Takaya created the series’ source manga, published from 1998 to 2006. Because so much time had passed, Takaya said she “cried every time I confirmed a script”.

About Fruits Basket
“Tohru Honda is 16 year old orphaned girl who gets invited to live in the house of her classmate, the handsome boy Sohma Yuki, and his cousins, 16 year old Kyo and 27 year old Shigure. However, these young men and parts of the rest of their family (both close and distant) hold a curse; if they are hugged by the opposite gender, they transform into animals of the Chinese Zodiac. Everyday is an adventure for sweet Tohru, as she gets to know everyone in the large family better (especially Yuki and Kyo), in both common and bizarre situations. But, the Sohma Family curse is certainly no laughing matter… it also holds horrible cruelity and heartbreak.” – Anime News Network
