Written and Illustrated by Natsuki Takaya, ‘Fruits Basket’ is a Japanese romantic-comedy manga series that inspired the anime series of the same name. The anime follows Tohru Honda, who lives with her grandfather after the death of her mother in a car accident. Unfortunately, she soon has to live in a tent because of some ungrateful and unkind family members. As fate would have it, even her tent can’t escape her bad luck as a landslide destroys it. But it turns out to be a blessing in disguise as she moves in with the Soma family following the unfortunate incident.
Tohru learns that the animals of the Chinese zodiac possess the members of the Souma family. With her kindness, she helps them heal from the hardships and tribulations that come with the curse. The first two seasons of the show were a massive success. If you are also a fan of the series and are wondering when season 3 will release, here is everything we know.
