The Kanagawa Prefecture Red Cross and Fruits Basket will collaborate on a blood donation campaign between January 17, 2022 and February 28, 2022. The collaboration will feature Shigure, Hatori, and Ayame Souma in white doctor’s coats. They will appear on posters, as well as on limited merchandise. [Thanks, Famitsu!]
This campaign is to encourage more people to donate blood. In order to do so, the Red Cross is offering limited merchandise that use the campaign’s main visual. 1,500 people will be able to get acrylic clear folders and 1000 people will be able to get sticker exchange tickets, with both types of goods featuring the three. This is on a first come, first serve basis. As for the sticker exchange tickets, you can go to Animate stores in Kanagawa to choose the sticker you want.
This is the second collaboration between Fruits Basket and the Red Cross. In 2021, the Red Cross had Tohru, Yuki, and Kyo on advertisements and merchandise. The prizes for this collaboration, as well as how to get them, were the same as this one’s. Additionally, both Fruits Basket and Red Cross collaborations were limited to the Kanagawa Prefecture.
The Fruits Basket and Red Cross collaboration will start on January 17, 2022 and end on February 28, 2022. Fruits Basket is readily available for streaming on services such as Funimation, and a new anime series following Tohru’s parents will start airing some time in 2022.
