Another cast member revealed for completely fresh adaptation
Another cast member has been added to the voice lineup of the new Fruits Basket anime, which has a completely fresh cast and staff adapting Natsuki Takaya's manga from the beginning. Following up on a pair of additions from earlier this month, the latest update puts Maaya Sakamoto (Ciel Phantomhive in Black Butler, Motoko Kusanagi in Ghost in the Shell: Arise) in the role of Akito Sohma.
Fruits Basket premieres this April, with Yoshihide Ibata (FLCL Progressive) directing, Taku Kishimoto (91 Days) handling series composition, and Masaru Shindou (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU) on character designs at anime studio TMS Entertainment.
A commemorative event with the cast in attendance is scheduled for March 16 in Japan. Attendees of the live viewing will be eligible to receive a limited glittery Fruits Basket card case.
