The third and final season of Fruits Basket is set to premiere on April 5, but Funimation Premium subscribers can watch the first episode dubbed right now.

Based on the popular manga of the same name, Fruits Basket follows idealistic orphan Tohru Honda, who slowly becomes entangled with the mysterious Sohma family. Certain members of the family are cursed to turn into animals of the zodiac when hugged by someone of the opposite sex. The entire family lives in isolation, following the will of enigmatic and strangely powerful family head Akito, reluctant to form bonds outside the family, because they know they are destined for heartbreak.

But as Tohru befriends classmates Yuki and Kyo (the rat and the cat, respectively) she meets more of the family, discovering more about them. She becomes determined to break the curse that binds them all together.

The second season ended with some big revelations from Kureno about Akito, and this new episode sees Tohru processing a lot of it and figuring out where to go next.
