I saw this one at Waterstones while browsing and had to have it, as Fruits Basket is the only manga series I have complete, all the volumes. They were a parting gift (when I moved to the UK) from my best friend, who passed away two years later. So they have a lot of meaning to me.

Admitedly I wasn’t sure what to expect, and it was confusing to go into the story not being sure who was who. It does get explained as the story moves on, but I found it way more confusing than the original manga.

On the good side it still has the same story vibe and the artwork is gorgeous, but it is too close to the original in some ways, that I would rather not have it be that close.

Moon recommends

Skip this “continuation” or revival, and go read the original series. That is much better. If you like manga, CLAMP is always a good one to choose (they’re a group of artists, and they are the master minds behind Sakura Card Captor).
