Discusses the first volumes of Fruits Basket Another by Natsuki Takaya and Sacrificial Princess & the King of Beasts by Yu Tomofuji
Welcome to our first preview guide! What's a preview guide, you ask? Our preview guide episodes will cover the first volume of newly released shojo/josei series (in the US), providing first reactions about the manga (mixing review with our normal discussion format). These will be shorter episodes that come out in addition to our normal bi-weekly, in-depth series discussions. More shojo talk! What could be better?
Our inaugural series are Fruits Basket Another and Sacrificial Princess & the King of Beasts. Honestly, you know what you’re getting just from those titles alone, but Shojo & Tell host Ashley and her bestie Asher Sofman tell you their likes and dislikes and hopes and dreams. Can the world handle yet another Fruits Basket (without the gimmick that made the original such a success)? Does this new riff on Beauty and the Beast have a uniquely compelling hook? Find out from the Ashes.
- Fruits Basket Another is available from Yen Press
- Sacrificial Princess & the King of Beasts is also available from Yen Press
- Sacrificial Princess reminds Asher of Red River, which is available from Viz Media

- Outro Song: “Like Swimming” by Broke For Free, a really awesome electronic music producer your should support!
