The gorgeous new visual reveals Tohru Honda in what looks like a state of anguish, back-to-back with Akito Soma, whom Tohru first met in Fruits Basket Season 1. Billed as the main antagonist of the series and the “god” of the zodiac, this teaser sets us up for what is sure to be a very emotional final season.

Also shared with us was a heartfelt message from Fruits Basket mangaka Natsuki Takaya, who shared her thanks for those who helped to make this production happen, and to the fans of the manga and anime for sticking with her:

After two seasons, the Fruits Basket anime is about to enter its final chapter.

I just… Wow. This must have been ton of work for the staff.

I have personal experience with the pressure to keep running, and with what it feels like to encounter all sorts of difficulties along the way, so I’m just full of gratitude and appreciation for everyone involved in the production.

And to all of you readers and viewers, I’ll be honored if you stick with these characters and see which path each of them lands on in the end—as well as where those paths lead.

I hope you’ll enjoy all the final season to the very end.

Natsuki Takaya
