Just turns into straight up gay porn
It's already getting there.
I missed the news, they actually announced a second season?
Not okay with Nagisa looking more grown up
Rin drama between him and rival.
They need to give the guys better asses, have they not been to a gym?
Maybe some love interests?
Free swimming simulator when?
tumblr is that u
Girlfriends for all!
They go to college/university
>Makoto's pantsu line
Faggot female fanservice just like the last season
How gay would they be if hey have a person from the sea in the show?
So when is it supposed to start?
Before or after summer?
Considering the other projects KyoAni has at the moment, my guess would be for the summer season but there hasn't been any official announcement yet.
Wasn't the message "See you next summer"?
can't blindly trust KyoAni
I know most the skits in the event yesterday will be dismissed as fanservice but I'm reading weibo reports and apparently Makoto said Rin and Haru also compare leg hair.
Did Haru start shaving too or did they start growing it out?
There was no guarantee there was even going to be a second season when the last episode with that endcard aired though. All the fans (myself included) are hoping for this summer slot but I'm not getting my hopes up until more info is available.
Drinking /u/fags delicious tears
Gou's friend goes to her house for a visit and sees her room.
>Muscle posters everywhere
>Small weights because Gou is interested in toning her own arms
Makoto falls from being best boy
Then in a shock turn of events becomes even better boy than before somehow
They're going to have to pull some serious ass to make that happen. You'd have to undermine his selflessness and his loyalty, and those aren't easy foundations to sap. He'd barely be recognizable without them.
Don't forget anon
Point taken. These are dreadful tidings if this is the path they have chosen.
Remember how Yokotani wanted to make him forget about his friends in college.
No it's about the end card where Haru and Rin are getting their heights measured and Makoto comments that those two used to compare leg hair too. The VAs say it's a sign of manliness.
I've only read two tumblr reports but the weibo reports are shockingly more detailed I almost wonder if they're bullshitting. Like the end card where Haru and Makoto were playing video games, Makoto wanted Haru to blow dry his hair but by the time their game was over Haru's hair was dry.
Maybe he'll go to a college that only accepts best girls.
So they were trying to see who grew more leg hair as elementary schoolers? I really want a shota OVA.
Anything else interesting? I'd guess twitter would be able to back details up if anyone really wanted to make sure.
A bunch of the event recaps I've seen on twitter were by harcore shippers and were either wrongly reported by the original fujoshits (because a lot of them didn't match up) or by the translators that are going around and spreading them... The event DVD can't come out soon enough.
Interesting? Apparently Makoto's anger is the silent kind and when he gets mad at Rin all he has to do is say "Rin." and Rin backs down. Makoto's anger is more scary than Rin's anger.
I guess I should add that in the end card where Makoto and Haru were playing video games with serious looks, Makoto was actually mad at Haru for refusing to blow dry his hair.
All the Frees magically turn into their animal symbol. They all go on crazy underwater adventures, but every once in a while there is a cutaway to a butterfly just flittering around alone for a few minutes.
rin will become goth emo or something like that
nagisa will become cuter somehow and help snap him out of his pity party and swim again
Why would they lie about what happened at the event? What does that even do for them when several other people are there who are watching the same event? And when do you think that'll be released?
He really is like a mother to them all.
I want Nagisa development. Even though he's the cutest lil shit there is I would like more emotions other than quirky happy. Maybe something about his relationship with his sister
Also Harus parents
>mother to them all.
Actually the more I read weibo reports the more inconsistencies arise. I was quoting one of them saying Makoto was mad at Haru but a different report has a transcript of the actual skit and Haru actually called Makoto childish because Makoto said "So if I win the game you'll listen to me?" Fujos need to get their facts straight.
To clarify, by "wrongly" I just meant the shipping getting in the way of actual reports and fujoshits glorifying a bunch of the skits as celebrations of their beautiful yaois etc etc. Plus, I saw lots of translations floating around that were just blatantly wrong (but that's tumblr for ya).
>And when do you think that'll be released?
Event DVDs can take weeks to release... However, I'm sure KyoAni will need to advertise to hype it up and boost sales anyway so I'd be on the lookout for an announcement soon.
>Makoto was mad at Haru
>Haru called Makoto childish
That doesn't sound mutually exclusive, though.
What were all the skits, anyway?
The VAs apparently acted out a bunch of the end cards and some extra scenes from the anime.
More of this
I meant, the same person who said Makoto was mad at Haru also said Makoto only gets angry at Haru related things, and it's a dangerous silent anger more scary than Rin. Then goes on to say Makoto got angry at Haru in the skit, implying quiet seething anger.
Whereas the transcript portrayed it very light-heartedly, playful teasing. Best to wait for the dvd to see it for ourselves.
Mikoshiba will win the Gou.
From what it looks like, there were different skits at the different showings. The afternoon one had fishing and the second one was episode 4's endcard. Anyone know if there was anything else changed?
Looks like that's the only way to be sure.
More gay scenes
More cute boys
More of Utsumi's Rinfaggotry.
I like how they finally add some more varied sides to his character. I was getting a bit tired of the 'perfect' image he had at the beginning.
If the poster >>100994242 means anything, Rin looks like he'll still be important in S2. I know that won't make some people happy if it's true, but hopefully he stays relatively good natured if not genki or cocky all the time. He should be focused with less drama.
Just give us a fucking babysitting scene with glasses, that's all we need
Nice cancerous gif you got there.
I actually feared it would take months, so it's not that bad.
Let's hope they'll release new information about High Speed 2, S2 and the event soon.
I don't know what's the site people get the BD projection stats from but did the event yesterday boost pre-orders for the final BD?
New key visual is up.
A lot, apparently.
Nice, I hope the average manages to hit 30k.
30k average sounds too unrealistic, I wouldn't get my hopes up.
It would be nice if it could beat Lucky Star's average though (29k).
I could bet my left arm that this wasn't drawn by the character designer. They look too different from usual.
Huh, never noticed that 2 on Haru's swimsuit.
Just found a tweet about the fourth endcard. Seems like what you read was true.
Do you think they decided to make any design changes purposefully?
inb4 they change the character designer
Pffft, you can forget about that as long as Utsumi is still directing.
The director is a Rinfag, it's inevitably going to happen.
My moon isn't the best, but doesn't it say that Makoto wants to dry Haruka's hair?
Makoto really does act like an annoying mom sometimes.
What does that have to do with what he said? The director already confessed she likes to see Rin cry.
Hence the "more Rinfaggotry" comment.
I think he thought the implication was that Rin would be appearing less, as opposed to a comment about impending Rin drama.
But I really doubt any even partially competent director or writer would make him go through even more suffering and sharpen his edges again.
Found a transcript, it basically goes
>Haru out of the bath
>Makoto telling him to dry his hair
>Haru doesn't want to
>Makoto suggesting they play games and if he wins Haru has to do as he says
The rest is identical.
Or never mind me. Still, they have been softening him up a lot between seasons.
What if he had some suffering again this time but he powers through it better?
I'd prefer if he doesn't get any more focus at all.
If Utsumi wants to see him cry that badly, just show a cooking scene with him and Haru or Rei where he cuts onions or some other shit.
>I'd prefer if he doesn't get any more focus at all
You know that won't happen, so at least think of a best case scenario given what we do know.
And Rin will obviously cry at graduation again.
>Mikoshiba and Nitori are crying as well
I'm okay with graduation drama, it's the only acceptable kind of drama and if it's half as good as the K-ON one it's gonna be alright.
>implying Mikoshiba won't be long forgotten when the 2nd-years graduate
True. I guess Rin's just going to cry alone.
I remember a comic on pixiv with Mikoshiba graduating and Rin trying not to cry. Even though Rin thought Mikoshiba was annoying, he was still a good captain.
They'll probably timeskip to the beginning of the next school year though.
CommieSubs gives it the title "Even Gayer Swimming!"
I actually wabt Commie to do at least the first episode when S2 airs. Their 'subs' always give me a good laugh.
>They'll probably timeskip to the beginning of the next school year though.
I don't care about Mikoshiba, buzt just tossing him aside would be cruel.
>They'll probably timeskip to the beginning of the next school year though.
I don't care about Mikoshiba, but just tossing him aside would be cruel.
Can't wait for all the merch announcements now that S2 got announced.
Nagisa stuffing his mouth
I'm looking forward to the threads when S2 starts airing, last night made me realize how much I missed them.
>everyone chooses universities, Rin gets in the Tokyo University as well as Rei
>Nagisa ends up going to some no-name college for history
>Haru and Makoto stay in the town with the both of them becoming swimming instructors
>Nagisa ends up becoming depressed thanks to a useless degree at a shitty college and becomes a gigolo
>Rei turns into a penguin and burns down Tokyo by transmitting his semen into people's heads
>Rin turns into a shark and flies into the Australian parliament building and causes 6 trillion Aussies to die
>Nitori still hasn't graduated
My dad works at KyoAni, trust me.
They will probably less vocal as during S1, but I hope they will be just as fun.
Most likely theory so far.
So they finally stop acting like little girls? Too bad.
They'll just slapp another word at the end.
>Free! After Story Nagisa dies
Yokotani finally gets to name the show Freeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! in S2 like he originally wanted.
S3 is called Freest!
>each season gets an additional 'e'
Freee! it is.
More horrible KyoAni fashion.
>New character designer adds nipples
I can get behind this.
Even an accidental kissu is more likely than that.
That scene wasn't even that homo, I know KyoAni can do better.
Kyoani is too pure for extremely lewd homo things.
But can they do it subtly and tastefully?
we could stop this
Is he a chimera ant ?
Director and character designer obviously wanted them. Probably too time-consumingand hard to animate.
Maybe they'll give Utsumi more freedom and let her do what she wants in S2.
Imagine all the lewd we could get.
A beautiful drowning butterfly.
Those are three words.
How do I need to train to get so buff as these guys? Makoto especially, his shoulder muscles are so godly.
Read the sticky. Going heavy on compound exercises should do the trick.
Or should have I said well defined muscle?
Cardio + eat less
I know it won't happen but I want at least one of the boys confirmed 100% canon gay and I want gay drama.
I man can dream...
If you want low bodyfat, just eat less and swim or lift regularly.
You'll reach ottermode in less than 6 months that way provided you aren't a fattie.
>GAY romance drama
Can I get lots of light-hearted homo scenes instead?
>tfw you'll never be a Free
>implying Kyoani would ever go that far
That to, but I dislike the pussyfooting in making all the guys effeminate and homo-ish and then not making them actually gay; I mean it's a dumb ass shit slice of life/fanservice show so it shouldn't go brokeback mountain-core on us. But a little bit of drama won't hurt.
How will KyoAni top Splash Free?
Like I said, they most certainly won't, it's too sensitive a topic and it'd loose them way more viewers than it would gain, in my ideal world it would happen.
Fujoshi don't like confirmed homo, teasing is all we'll ever get.
The best thing that could happen is a kiss, but that's it.
Full-on gay orgy.
Mecha piloting with tight plugsuits in space
They'll find a way
My wallet will be getting a thorough raping.
I've actually suspended my plans to quit my job next month in anticipation of all the magazines and merch I will be buying over the next year, again.
I've already started having nightmares about missing the preorder releases for the Alter figures.
Being a buyfag is suffering.
>implying there's a snowflakes chance in hell they will even go that far
They won't even go for fujoshi it's-not-gay-they-just-love-each-other yaoiesque gay, because a minority of the audience is homophobic enough not to accept it and they won't gain many allies.
>you'll never hang out butt-naked with your bros at an osasis and splash each other with water
We Eva now?
Reminder that KyoAni haven't found a way since Chuunibyou
KyoAni did a yuri kiss (and Free's director was the episode director), so why not.
but that's lewd, anon
I'd like to at least be able to kid myself that this isn't ragingly homosexual if I wanted to
Kyoani were never good, they just made well animated fan pandering mush, they can do anime pulp well but will never rise above that.
It's a testament to this that their smartest show is Hyouka.
The scales will sell out in less than 15 minutes anyway, so it's better to hope for a second wave or restock because Japan fast.
Lesbain relationships get played up more in fiction than homosexual, people are more okay with it.
>KyoAni haven't found their way
>Free vol.1-5 average is 29k
Please be painted at Wonfes and announce the other three figures.
I think he meant in a ANIME IS SAVED kind of way.
But why not just enjoy things that are meant to be enjoyed? I'm not watching KyoAni shows because I expect deep artistic themes in them, they are just fun.
Utsumi will save homos, you just have to believe.
If he wanted deep artistic themes to save anime he wouldn'tve cited Chuunibyou.
Then he's just a regular faggot.
I really wonder how long they can keep up the homo teasing, it's getting way too obvious lately, especially if those reports about the endcard live recordings at the event can be trusted.
TUMBLING DOWN TUMBLING DOWN TUMBLING DOWN
because faggots arwe fucking degenerate
care to elaborate on the endcard live recordings stuff?
>More horrible KyoAni fashion
Oh boy, can't wait.
wtf is that supposed to be around makoto's neck?
They strangely went full homo teasing only with Rei and Nagisa according to nip tweets. The others were comparatively tame (except for the half-naked princess carry bit with Haru and Rin maybe).
They did pic related and apparently Nagisa thinks about how he feels "so safe" in Rei's presence and Rei mutters Nagisa's name in his sleep.
Just go full homo, KyoAni.
she will fuck someone this time round
A thing called scarf.
Kyoani have always played it safe, they don't have the artistic integrity or the balls to go full homo. What anime has ever gone full homo on guys anyway? Outside of niche yaoi shows and Evangelion, and if you can say anything about Anno it's that he's brave.
It seems to loop like a donut though.
>adding homos to your show
Sure "adding" homos to your show would be dumb as shit, that's like a token black character, but you need to face the fact that some people are going to turn away if you confirm a character is gay, and that means you treat your show as more important than its profits, which means artistic integrity.
I don't know why everyone seems to be hating these outfits. They don't look bad at all.
Nagisa's is a bit silly but it's not horrendous.
Yeah, KyoAni will never do full homo.
But I can't blame them, homosexuality isn't a selling factor and they have always played it safe with their shows.
Take KnK for example, they removed a lot of darker themes and added more SoL and bad comedy.
Agreed, I actually like Rei's and Makoto's.
I didn't watch that but wasn't there some (literal) faggot in a scarf?
I was hoping Rei would join Sametsuka because he basically got dropped for Rin to get some kind of revenge being the new guy and all but thats fucking slim chances of happening.
No. He deeply cares for his sister and teases the MC a bit, but that's it.
Utsumi had a lot of fun with him in the idol shorts though.
But Rin is the cockroach.
They pander this much with Nagisa and Rei, but they are pushing buttahbros now, so I wonder how it will play out in the end.
I would be more than okay with pandering every possible 5P combination to be honest.
Rei is a huge slut
No shit Sherlock.
And people still call the purest Free slutty.
It's for Summer season.
Yep, pretty much confirmed now. I hope it will be less QUALITY this time.
They'll officially announce it again, right? These vague statements aren't really confirmations.
>This year's summer will be even hotter!
Are they talking about Free?
I want Nagisa and Rei to happen. I don't care how, but I want them to come out.
You're right, Nagisa isn't a slut.
He's just a really huge fag.
Well sorry faggot, but those two are already old and busted, buttahbros is the new hotness now.
>Rin's fucking face
Couldn't that just refer to Japan's upcoming temperatures in this year's summer?
>6 months until Free!!
Holy shit, that's adorable.
