Fruits Basket, the 2019-2021 anime adaptation of Takaya Natsuki's completed manga of the same name, will hit our screens once more this April for its third and final season, which will most likely have between 13 and 25 episodes. But where to watch Fruits Basket? Whether you want to refresh your memory or binge the first two seasons before April we've gathered the best ways to watch Fruits Basket:
Is Fruits Basket on Netflix?
Unfortunately, the first two seasons of Fruits Basket aren't on Netflix for now, so season 3 is unlikely to make it to the popular streaming service any time soon. As a rule of thumb, Netflix in the US and Europe become home to shows that are available to be binged at once, rather than ongoing works.
Of course, Netflix keeps expanding its anime library, but as Funimation and Crunchyroll currently hold the license for the popular shōjo show, so we don't expect to see it there soon.
Meanwhile, Beastars Season 2 is currently airing on Netflix Japan and will come to American Netflix this July.
Is Fruits Basket on Hulu?
Seasons 1 and 2 of Fruits Basket are currently available on Hulu. The bad news is that, in the case of Fruits Basket, Hulu didn't offer same-day streaming. This means that season 2 only became available as a whole after it finished airing last September. The same is likely to be true for Season 3, but don't worry! There are more ways to watch Fruits Basket!
Is Fruits Basket on Crunchyroll?
Fruits Basket Seasons 1 and 2 are currently available on Crunchyroll, to watch in Japanese with English subtitles. For the third season, subscribers will be able to watch episodes as they come out. A Crunchyroll subscription starts from $7.99 per month and you can start a free trial first to see if it's for you.
Non- subscribed users can still watch Fruits Basket on Crunchyroll, but they will have to wait longer for new episodes and there will be ads.
Is Fruits Basket on Funimation?
If you have a strong preference between Funimation and Crunchyroll, we have good news: Fruits Basket is available in both! The first two seasons can be watched in English dub, meaning that the third will likely be dubbed soon as well. Additionally, the first season is also available in Spanish and Portuguese
Premium Funimation users will be able to stream episodes immediately after release. Those who stream for free will have to wait one week to watch the newest Fruits Basket episodes and there will be ads.
Once again, if you're unsure about the paid plans of Funimation, you can try the 14-day free trial and see if it's for you. Paid plans start from $5.99 per month.
Thankfully, Fruits Basket is available in many venues, showing how good an anime it is. If you are still wonderting whether you should watch it, here are some reason why it's totally worth watching.
