    Fantastic remake of a beloved series
    I am a fan of the original anime and the manga. I saw the theatrical premier of the first two episodes and it was amazing. The art is gorgeous. The voice acting is spot on and I love the animation of the characters. There is so much more expression on their faces. Also, I can already see instances where they are including manga material that was cut from the 2001 anime. Counting down the ...

    Baby Haley is Absolutely Soaring
    I'm crying. It's beautiful. It's absolutely gorgeous. The music is wonderful, the character designs are amazing, and I'm so incredibly excited to see all of this pan out. When I was a kid, I fell in love with this anime, and now I'm 20 and crying before work because this remake is already chalking up to be completely amazing. I love Furuba so much. Okay, that's all. Thanks for coming to my TED ...

    When a reboot is done correctly
    There are times when a classic movie or show gets a remake, and sometimes you ask, why? When the original is good, why bother recreating something that was already done well? Often, the answer is just a cheap attempt to grab a new generation of viewers.

    However, there are the occasional outliers. Those rare times when someone takes a classic and remakes it into something even more special. ...

    Nostalgic at worst and mesmerizing at best
    The fruits basket manga was my favorite series as a child and I am so excited to see the story properly displayed in anime form. Don't get me wrong, I loved the original anime as it was the closest thing I had to an anime of my favorite series, and it will always hold a special place in my heart but it did have a lot of problems. So far this rendition is absolutely breath taking. The music is ...

    My favorite anime of all time
    I saw the first two episodes in the theatrical premier, and I loved it! I watched the original when I was 13 and I read the whole manga series. The animation is beautiful and the voice acting is great. I'm so excited to start watching and see the whole series animated!

    AMAZING AND NOSTALGIC
    I saw the theatrical premiere and let me tell you something: THEY MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE. This was absolutely beautiful and the cast did a small interview before the episodes and they fell in love with the characters. You will be in for a ride! Everything about this show is amazing and the first 2 episodes has me feeling like I was a teenager all over again. Super excited to see the rest of the ...

    Good for New and Old Fans Alike!
    I was a fan of the original manga and anime, and I am so excited for this modern remake! New fans, don't worry about knowing any of the old stuff! You'll be able to hop right into it with this new series!

    This is a series that has a general light-hearted tone, but there are a few more serious moments. The story has a lot of depth and the characters go through a lot of development, so it's an ...

    New to the Series but loving it!
    I didn't grow up with anime so I haven't watched the original Fruits Basket. Shoujo genre didn't really captivate me but this one feels different.

    It's straightforward, beautifully animated and each character shows a great amount of personality and characteristics. The original creator put a great deal of thought into each character by building their behavior, tastes, clothing and other ...

    Wow! What an incredible way to bring back a classic
    Tears! Suffering! Surprise! Elation! Can’t wait until the next episode and then the next and all the others after that. The main character is adorable. Love her already. The animation and design is phenomenal. Truly a work of art.

    Thanks for bringing this classic back to life for a whole new generation to enjoy
