Plot Summary: Tohru Honda is 16-year-old orphaned girl who gets invited to live in the house of her classmate, the handsome boy Sohma Yuki, and his cousins, 16-year-old Kyo and 27-year-old Shigure. However, these young men and parts of the rest of their family (both close and distant) hold a curse; if they are hugged by the opposite gender, they transform into animals of the Chinese Zodiac. Everyday is an adventure for sweet Tohru, as she gets to know everyone in the large family better (especially Yuki and Kyo), in both common and bizarre situations. But, the Sohma Family curse is certainly no laughing matter… it also holds horrible cruelty and heartbreak.

HUGE is your clue, so my guess is:


You don’t know how much I hope you’re right about that @Series5Ranger



The only disqualifier is that HUGE is in different colors and should be a clue as well. The Godzilla Anime movies might be it as well

Nothing coming out this year would qualify as a huge announcement in my book


Sony has convinced Aniplex USA to give up and transfer all titles to Funimation ? :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:



If you’ll notice the logo here is similar to the HUGE in the Announcement, might be the Fruits Basket Reboot. Meh Whatever lol


That is probably exactly it . I’m happy if that’s it ,but not huge to me as it’s pretty much expected considering how popular the original series was for them . Though to be fair not really much newer stuff I’d consider huge .
