The manga served as the inspiration for a 26-episode television series in 2001, followed by a three-season anime reboot that aired between 2019 and 2021.

Additionally, the reboot series was accompanied by a compilation film called Fruits Basket -prelude-, which premiered in Japan on February 18.

From 1998 to 2006, Takaya published the original Fruits Basket manga in Hakusensha’s Hana to Yume magazine.

The English version of the manga was released by Tokyopop between 2004 and 2009.

Subsequently, Yen Press reissued the manga in 12 omnibus volumes with updated content, starting in June 2016.
