About Fruits Basket Prelude
This small arc was originally included among the other chapters in the manga by Natsuki Takaya, which ran from 199 to 2006. However, the anime production team decided that it deserved the big screen treatment. Fruits Basket: Prelude tells the story of heroine Tohru Honda’s parents Kyoko and Katsuya Honda. The story doesn’t get entangled with the troubled Soma clan, but instead shows how the delinquent and outcasted Kyoko meets and falls in love with her schoolteacher Katsuya.
The entire series is about friendship and healing, and Fruits Basket: Prelude continues that. The original 2001 anime received a moderate amount of support, but it was fairly light-hearted. However, the 2019 reboot took the anime community by storm. The story was so touching, and the characters were so complex, yet endearing that the entire manga received a faithful adaptation with added bits.
