Can you hear it?
It's the sound of buttahbros bromance.
Least gay cover by far
>KyoAni in charge of fashion
Wasn't there some event going on this week. Are we getting any new announcements about S2 or something besides the character songs?
>less than 4 days until the talk event
>mfw I realize this
How do you freefags feel about this?
Spoiler for 3DPD
Second song sounds like it belongs to a toku show or a hotblooded shounen.
>implying that's porn
Still funny though
Finished this series mere hours ago.
Aint even bad, once you ignore all the fujoshit.
Goro isn't going to fuck them? Dropped.
So the kept the OWL AWT reference
>Rin coaching Rei in the OriginalDrama.
It would've fit really well.
Too bad Goro only fucks waifus.
>still thinking Free is gayer than the average moeshit SoL
If you saw fujoshit in that show then it's a sign you're one yourself.
Please be S2 or a shota movie
Why is he so best comedy material
Because he is best Free!
Makoto is a miracle of the universe and is on a level beyond everyone
Based. Completely and utterly based. Goddamn they sound great singing together.
This is the only thing I cared about since the series ended.
It sounds like shit, but I love it. I hate Mamorou Miyano so much.
>I hate Mamorou Miyano so much.
How do you live with yourself.
What the FUCK
Since he's in every series that's been released in the past few years, it's very difficult.
How can you HATE him though?
I don't like his voice. Get the fuck over it, asshole. Some people have different opinions than you.
Even the ugliest Free looks much better when Rei is involved.
Can't wait to listen to the drama part.
You're the first person on /a/ I've ever heard hate his voice. I just find it hard to believe.
>nips freaking the fuck out (positively) because of the jacket and duets
>Rei/Rin doujins slowly trickling in
You don't spend enough time on /a/
Every seiyuu thread he gets mentioned and I never notice any hate. He was praised all summer season for his role as Berg-Katze. You are a minority.
That's not Nitori
1,000 to 1 that Rin dressed Rei for this. Seriously, this isn't how Rei is dressed period.
>Rei is trying to mimic Rin's fashion sense.
>Rin let him borrow his clothes.
>Rin and Rei went shopping before this.
I love it. Doujins when?
I was thinking about how Rei's outfit didn't look, old man inspired enough like he usually does. Way too hip.
Translation of the drama preview (not mine, taken from THAT place):
>Rin: Hey, Rei.
>Rei: What is it, Rin-san?
>Rin: It’s bothered me for a while, but… why can’t you swim anything but the butterfly?
>Rin: To begin with, why didn’t anyone ever try to teach you? If they’d taken some time and taught you properly, anyone would pick it up normally.
>Rei: *STABBED* *STABBED*
>Rin: These days, even brats in kindergarten can at least swim the crawl.
>Rei: *STABBED* *STABBED* *STABBED* *STABBED*
>Rin: And anyway~ it’s *theoretically* ridiculous that someone could *only* swim the butterfly.
>Rei: Uuuuwwaaauuuughhh!!! What the heck?! While I’m sitting here nicely listening to you, you completely run your mouth! You have no idea how I feel! I mean, I worked my absolute hardest! And Haruka-senpai and the others taught me everything step-by-step! But I just couldn’t swim! So yeah, that’s right. I’m incapable of swimming anything but the butterfly! Isn’t that rich?! In the first place, humans are creatures that developed in the water before evolving to live on dry land. So you can’t possibly understand how it feels for those of us who can’t swim! You’ll never know what it feels like to be a hammer!!*
*Note: “Hammer” = slang for people who can’t swim (i.e. they sink like a hammer)
>Rin: Okay, okay, I’m sorry! If that’s the case… then I’ll teach you.
>Rin: What? Don’t you want to be able to swim?
>Rei: I— I do…
>Rin: Then come with me.
>Rin: These days, even brats in kindergarten can at least swim the crawl.
...he's not wrong.
Will we finally get an explanation why Rei can't swim anything but the Fly?
I really hope this will boost Rei's popularity, those crazy nip Rinfags love their Rin-chan after all.
For those wondering why Rin and Haruka still acted like little shits in the birthday voice messages, I happened to listen the radio show where Rei's VA was a guest and they admitted that those were recorded even before the show started.
Apparently, they didn't have a good grasp of their characters yet, so it was a bit difficult for the VAs.
This sounds interesting since Rei might finally learn how to swim the other strokes.
>inb4 it ends with another status-quo
>those were recorded even before the show started.
I'll never understand the voicing process of these, man. You record messages of the characters before the series even starts?
>Rin not acting like an edgy faggot
>Rin actually being helpful and offering to coach Rei
Buttahbros confirmed for best combo
Season 2: Free!!
Summer 2016: High Speed! The Movie
I doubt much development would actually stick through a drama track, but hopefully in S2 Rin is still helping Rei with that.
Rei is so best Free that he even makes Rin enjoyable.
Rin has been less edgy if at all in general lately.
My negro. But 5P is still the best
Time to wait some more I guess.
Haru's birthday was before it aired, and I guess they wanted to make sure he had his birthday congratulations.
What's this? A cover whose full version doesn't suck donkeycocks?
Can't wait for the HQ scan. I am strangely intrigued by Nagisa's behind.
>wearing glasses when you don't need them
Sasuga Rin a shit.
I don't think in general it's normal. It's just cause Haruka's birthday happened before the show aired, so they probably just had all the seiyuu record all the messages for everyone for the rest of the year at once.
>not being right-handed masterrace
Anyone know what they're singing about?
Hey, he did it to match Rei. It's nice.
Will people finally be less butthurt about the ending when both are on friendly terms like this?
I guess not.
This sounds hilarious and refreshingly not gay.
>tfw no moon skills
I bet it's just about muh friends and how much they mean to them like in all the other duet songs.
I certainly like the sound of that.
Boy they really go out of their way to make these album covers look gay don't they?
They look like they'd be a lot of fun.
They're going to be the main source of comedy in future, mark my words.
Probably, because i don't have any friends. ;_;
But I though I was your friend.
I-I thought we were all friends.
But you guys are my friends.
>no edgy faggot Rin
>cool kid + turbonerd combination
>no edgy faggot Rin
>dat friendly rivalry
>no edgy faggot Rin
>top-tier comedy gold and high entertainment value
>no edgy faggot Rin
Why is buttahbros so perfect?
KyoAni has indulged my glasses fetish a lot lately. TYBKA
According to nips, the second song sounds similar to some popular old song called "Seishun Amigo".
I wouldn't be surprised if that was true, KyoAni likes referencing after all (not SHAFT-tier, but still).
No edgy faggot Rin.
>everyone except Makoto and Nagisa gets two duet CDs
I've been looking forward to this. Songs are shit as usual, but the drama track sounds great.
Anyone with the translation from the Drama CD?
>implying side material can make up for shitting up the show
There are some things you can't correct.
What if S2 does that?
I don't think Utsumi's going to do anything.
Isn't it enough that all five of them are bffs again and that Rei didn't regret his decision at all? It's time to let go.
Just saying it doesn't make up for the train wreck in the show. Anyone watching Free for the first time will invariably think so.
>No Makoto/Nagisa duet CD
>No cute K-ON-like song about cakes, chocolate and strawberries
>No drama CD with both of them discussing their siblings
Fuck this shit.
>>No cute K-ON-like song about cakes, chocolate and strawberries
Thanks for making me want something I'll never get.
Hello no, this isn't VVV.
Like Chuu2, Free suffered from a shitty drama-filled second half.
Everyone just feels that the drama dragged on for too long and that the staff did a poor job of making the viewers sympathize with Rin, that's it.
The switching part at the end was subjectively retarded, but I can see that it was necessary for Rin's 'salvation'. The 'power of friendship' bullshit had been hinted at from the beginning, so I can't say it was surprising.
But still, Utsumi's Rinfaggotry a shit.
Did they go shopping together?
Gay as fuck.
>4 days until the event
They're gonna announce S2, r-right?
Songs sound like shit like usual, but the drama part is pretty good.
Rin has a point. Realistically, Rei would be useless at practice. No swimmer swims all fly. Even people who swim that stroke swim mostly crawl when practicing/drilling/etc, which I guess he uses a kick board for?
Leave it to Rin to point out the flaws and idiosyncrasies in the series. He did it in the Illus Book CD when he told Makoto to rein in Haru's mackerel shenanigans. If this is his new personality, I'm okay with it.
Maybe if we suck enough dicks.
>Rin gets the non-annoying straight man role
I am okay with this.
KyoAni finally showed their first crossdressing boy today.
Shouldn't be too long until we get crossdressing in Free as well (drama CD doesn't count since we couldn't see jackshit).
Muscular boys in female clothing is my biggest fetish, please deliver, Utsumi.
Here, I vastly improved your picture.
No need to thank me.
Sorry, shit characters aren't allowed.
5P a best and the only worthwhile thing in Free.
I can't wait.
Then why is Rin there?
Say that to my face.
>the first buttahbros doujin has appeared
Because you haven't listened to the drama part in the OP's link.
A preview on pixiv for an upcoming doujin event on Rin's birthday
Rin is such a pussy that even Rei tops him.
They are like quarreling brothers from what we have seen so far. Definitely amusing.
>yfw it's an otome game
>yfw it's a fighting game
S2 + shota or Olympics movie + onsen OVA.
And two-sided pajama dakis for the last secret project.
>A preview on pixiv for an upcoming doujin event on Rin's birthday
>Rin is such a pussy that even Rei tops him.
I think I've found it.
Time to browse pixiv.
I want to do unspeakable things to Nagisa's anus.
>yfw it's a ___BL___ game
>yfw it's a fighting BL game
Rei's fat ass is always very related to these threads.
I get sad about the fact that I'll never fuck Rei, then I realise Daisuke Hirakawa has done obscene amounts of BLCDs/has 0 range, and I feel a little better.
The songs are terrible and I probably shouldn't be laughing this hard at the second one, but the drama part seems great. They make a good combo.
>implying he wouldn't wreck your anus instead
>The songs are terrible
Stopped reading there.
>The songs are terrible
Everyone's saying this, but I honestly think they aren't that bad. There are much worse things out there, like Ali Project or nano.ripe
Sexually exploiting him would be so fucking easy, it's laughable.
Japanese translations at their finest.
Why didn't Rei question the white women's bikini bottom?
Why does Nagisa even have that in his collection?
He wears girly enough clothes for it to not be surprising. Maybe he just wanted to see Rei's delicious juicy butt in a tiny swimsuit bottom.
I know I would.
Nagisa is a scheming little faggot and subtly tried to make Rei wear that shameful outfit.
But Rei, an upstanding, hard-working and disciplined healthy young man he, immediately saw through that little fag's plan and skillfully declined Nagisa's offer.
What an upstanding, hard-working and disciplined healthy young man. Sasuga Rei.
>then: Makoto circlejerking threads
>now: Rei circlejerking threads
I guess I am okay with this.
Rei is the best Free after all.
What are those games where you can "pair off" all the characters but without going full homo? Something like that would be most likely for Free.
>tfw Japan has shit taste and doesn't like Rei
Rei and Makoto are tied for best boy.
In my mind at least.
>implying it's not gonna be Iwatobi Faiter
It's just fanservice. He's still shit.
>He's still shit.
It's in the genes.
I want to slide up in between them and hold their hands. I bet they're both so warm.
>hold their hands.
Not entirely related but where do people stand on how canon the drama tracks are? Nagisa's sisters bullying him first happened in the drama CD and came up again in FrFr, so it looks like it's meant to be canon for the show too.
Why wouldn't it be canon?
>hold their hands.
Ever heard of non-sexual intimacy? Get your minds out of the gutter.
You sick fuck, I bet you'd even cuddle with them.
I'm neither that guy nor saying he's right, but some side material like the drama CDs can be very questionable, so it's best not to take them seriously.
I'd love to cuddle with Makoto.
I want to bully Makoto.
With my dick that is.
>2D Goro defiling my husbando
Now I know how waifufags feel about 3D Goro.
I want to tenderly love Rei and then I want to sneak my hand around and pet his hair and whisper "you're beautiful" in his ear
>and whisper "you're beautiful" in his ear
100% sure way to make him cum.
What Free pairings does /a/ endorse?
Why are sleepy boys so cute?
your favourite free x you
Any as long as you don't get autismal about it and start shippingwars
Makoto x me
My dick x Makoto
Makoto's hand x my hand
Ama-chan-sensei x Goro is the only mature and acceptable ship.
>Rei, utsukushii na...
Because they are vulnerable, which makes you want to protect and watch over them.
And those cute sounds they make.
What about MikoshibaXGou?
Jesus Christ, those yaoihands.
Mikoshiba is too pure.
The Sunohara of Free
Never mind the hands, his head is like 3x bigger than Rei's.
That neck is bigger than his head
Is it THAT time again?
Oh fuck no.
He is a pure maiden.
You know the one.
Now that's a rare one.
>you'll never nurse a handicapped Makoto, feed him and change his diapers
inb4 cancer makoto again
Rarer than Nagisafags?
Is there any story to this one? Did the artist genuinely try to depict water or draw this in bad taste on purpose?
Best boy x Best Boy
Only acceptable answer.
These are killing me.
Oh boy, totally forgot about that one.
I have no idea, but I don't think I want to know.
I wish I had saved all of the pictures that came of it, this is the only one I have.
I pray we'll get drawfags again once S2 airs.
Mist threads were terrible, but I always got a good laugh out of them.
Is it true that Free! took place in 2009?
This is the worst one.
Fuck the anon who came up with the idea and fuck the anon who drew this.
Where did you get that idea from?
I didn't see anything that would point to that idea.
If it is true though, a movie about London 2012 might happen.
There's nothing in the show with a date later than summer 2009.
Nitori a best Free
Do you have screenshots of said dates?
But I'm a real Nitorifag I swear
Luigi > Mario
That's not my image dammit
Wario > *
What's it like to be NTR'd?
Nitorifags probably fap to NTR porn, it's already there in his name.
>it's already there in his name.
Mind = blown
>still thinking there's more than one
I wonder if he's having fun with his tulpa.
You can't control tulpas, right?
That shit must be scary, I'd rather stick to lucid dreaming.
Has anyone made a list for a drinking game yet?
Take a shot every time
>Makoto stares at Haruka
>Rin behaves like an angsty edgemaster
>Rei uses "utsukushii"
>you want to punch Nitori in the face
But I'm too young to die of liver poisoning.
Speaking of Chuu2, Yuuta makes a nice trap.
>that one MakotoxRei faggot
Crossdressing Frees when? I want to see those muscles embedded in cute frills.
Why do you want to pee on our parade Anon?
Who hurt you?
>pee on our parade
That's because you're probably a piss-drinker. And Rei a shit.
>you're probably a piss-drinker
But he isn't a Nagisafag.
They're shit and yet enjoyable
Just like most Japanese songs
Holy shit that chomping.
I should get around to finishing this series.
>hasn't finished the show
Prepare to get butthurt at the ending
That one RinRei doujin at the Rin event looks like it has Rei's brother appear in it.
>doujin featuring an OC
>still no official Rei onii-chan
At least we got a glimpse of Nagisa's sisters.
>implying Rin isn't going to become Rei's onii-chan
>Rei a shit
I apologize Anon. Life on the short bus must be a challenge for you
I already know about it, but I'll find out soon enough when I watch it myself.
It might be better that I am watching it after the storm has calmed.
>It might be better that I am watching it after the storm has calmed.
But the shitstorms were one of the best things about watching it with /a/. Some threads were pure comedy gold.
>ETA: 3 days 2 hours 31 minutes
Feels like waiting for next Water Day ;_;
I miss Water Days.
Soon I'll use this as the OP picture again.
I'm also a Nitorifag. I'm just quiet.
So gold that it's worth checking in the archive?
I've just seen that some get really heated and I could imagine that some weren't happy with Rin.
>some weren't happy with Rin.
Try 90%. Even Rinfags were fed up after episode 9.
The Rin Defense Force after episode 7 and when they got told after episode 8 were the highlights.
>Rin isn't jealous of Rei!
>He is just angry because his technique sucks so much!
>Rin did nothing wrong, Haruka was being an ass first!
Some of those threads were fucking hilarious. Too bad that towards the end of the show practically everyone was starting to get tired of the dragged out drama, the threads weren't as fun anymore.
I do try to believe in characters, but I'm sure it was difficult to excuse his shit after a point.
How was the quality of the last few episodes?
Since I'm so late, I'm wondering if I should just wait for the BDs.
