The official website for Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine is listing the cover of this year's 24th issue of the magazine, which lists a new anime adaptation for Natsuki Takaya's Fruits Basket manga. The magazine will officially ship on November 20. The announcement image features the text "Zenpen," which means "the entire story."


Plot/Premise

After a family tragedy turns her life upside down, plucky high schooler Tohru Honda takes matters into her own hands and moves out...into a tent! Unfortunately for her, she pitches her new home on private land belonging to the mysterious Sohma clan, and it isn't long before the owners discover her secret. But, as Tohru quickly finds out when the family offers to take her in, the Sohmas have a secret of their own--when touched by the opposite sex, they turn into the animals of the Chinese Zodiac!

I'm beyond excited, especially since I never would have thought it could happen! Glad to see my high school fave come back.

I didn't want to watch the first one since I knew the story was incomplete and it seemed confirmed there was no plan to make more. This is nice, now I think I'll watch this one!

I'm still waiting for the details as to whether it's going to be a sequel, a remake, or that Another side story, but this was long overdue. Considering how successful the show was and how it was considered to be the best shojo anime when it came out, I was just surprised that it didn't get a sequel. Not to mention, the success in America. Hopefully, it is a sequel, but given the Zenpen part of the title, as well as the fact that the anime had some key differences from the manga, that it could very well be a reboot instead.

If this is an actual remake that'd be great! I never ended up reading the manga so there's a lot of content still for me to enjoy.

I am happy, at the same time feel sad because it reminds me of Risuko Okazaki...

Wait what?! Is this a remake?! Are they remaking the series and plan on finishing the story this time?!

Given this statement in the article:

The announcement image features the text "Zenpen," which means "the entire story."

...it certainly sounds like it.

It makes sense, as the manga ended 12 years ago. The only reason not to have it cover the complete series would be budget, and the author could simply have turned down any offers for a new anime that didn't involve telling the complete story.

-foams at mouth- entire story.. yes! >w<

I recently acquired the blurays of the original series, the sweet sixteen anniversary edition, now I must save up for the future BD releases of the new anime!

Since Funimation still owns the licenses for the original, you think they'll get the new anime?
