>you will never swim in a cherry blossom pool with the Frees
How does this make you feel?
I'm not a fag so pretty good
Like I should be reporting a general for a series that ended.
I want to hug him.
>5 months until the OVA
Fuck this shit.
I will post this every Free thread until Sousuke gets a proper resolution.
>He's so perfect swimmer!
>He's my perfect idol!
I still can't believe they published that.
>forcing threads when there's isn't anything new.
Fujoshits pls go.
>How does this make you feel?
Pretty fucking heterosexual
We never got proper solo versions for the ED, right? I don't remember having Rei and Nagisa's.
>Makoto's "Mooou~ Haru" while dressed as a cow
The drama track in the 2nd BD is apparently about Haru and Nagisa working at a burger shop, and Makoto and Rei working as delivery boys.
>Makoto and Rei working as delivery boys.
Fantasies do come true.
>Haruka: This is...
>Makoto: What's up, Haru? Found something good?
>Haruka: Yeah. Pool lifeguard.
>Nagisa: That's perfect for you!
>Makoto: No way, Haru.
>Haruka: Why, Makoto?
>Makoto: Even if there's a pool in front of you, full of people having fun swimming, you're not allowed to go in. Haru, will you be able to contain yourself?
>Haruka: Nn... I can.
>Makoto: Say it to me eye to eye.
>Haruka: I'll contain... I won't.
>Rei: As expected from Makoto-senpai! He predicted what Haruka-senpai was going to do!
>Nagisa: Then, Haru-chan, how about this? "Looking for new staff for the launching event of the new mackerel burger, mackerel lovers welcome!"
>Rei: Wait a second! Mackerel lover he might be, this is a hamburger shop! A hamburger shop that sells even smiles, how can Haruka-senpai do it?
If there's one thing about S2 that confuses me the most, it's how every other third year Haruka knew in the LN got flashback sequences and other moments where they mention memories of their younger years. Yet strangely there was not one moment of acknowledgement in the anime that Haruka and Sousuke share a past. It takes a lot of context away from Sousuke's personality and his interactions with Haruka were rendered shallow. Sousuke was a key person in Haruka's life in the LN, but for whatever reason the anime just kind of erased that and pretended it never happened. They basically rebooted their entire relationship from the LN, minus the conflict resolution and mutual understanding they reached in the end.
I don't care really. Swimming in a flowery pool doesn't seem all that exciting.
that would be "moeeeee" haru not mo
nips can't into vowels
Sousuke has said he raced Haru in ep 2 though. Their scenes in S2 is a bit similar to the LN so having flashbacks of it seems redundant to me.
that would be "moeeeee" haru not moo.
nips can't into vowels...
When I saw that scene all I could think about was how much of a pain it would be to skim all that shit once they were done.
Sure, there was a mention that Haruka and Sousuke raced each other, but there was nothing about their friendship or the conversations they had.
My issue is that their scenes in S2 were pointless because they pretty much mirrored their rocky interactions in the novel, only less well written.
Their interactions stagnated to that one segment of their relationship and made very, very little progression whatsoever. That they even had a conflict at all was rather arbitrary, and there never seemed to be any solid reason for why they made Sousuke dislike Haru all over again, or at least why their tensions lasted for so long and never got truly resolved even after the finale. It seems like a waste of time.
I agree that their interactions were handled poorly in the show though I don't think they were really friends in the LN. They do respect each other as swimmers, but Sousuke doesn't seem to like Haru's mindset towards the sport.
Yeah but Sousuke not totally agreeing with Haruka's philosophies doesn't mean they weren't friends. Sousuke didn't totally agree with Rin's philosophies either, really.
We didn't see any interactions between Rin and Sousuke in the LN so its hard to compare, but I doubt Sousuke would be as rude as he was with Haru. I know people like to bring up the croquettes but Haru's mother made those. Haru offered some vegetable thing he made himself to Sousuke and he outright refuse to even try it.
Actually, it would be directly translated as "Mooo- Haru", but I've seen English speakers translating もーっ as "mou" and thought that was widely accepted due to English phonetics.
I wasn't implying that he would be as rude with Rin as he was with Haruka, although, it was mentioned in the novels that Rin and Sousuke fought a lot, and their differences were part of what made Rin search for his "ultimate team" elsewhere. Sousuke wasn't the type who would want to be a part of something like that.
Sousuke refusing to try Haruka's cooking was just him being a tsun little prick, but they were pretty much getting along otherwise. Haruka wasn't exactly bothered by it.
And I have no delusions about them being really close or on perfect terms with one another, but I would still describe what they had in the LN as a weird sort of rivalry friendship.
Sousuke just didn't like Haru because he felt he was wasting his potential. Since he had an injury it must have been frustrating to see someone with so much talent and lacking motivation. I feel like Sousuke was just projecting on Haru.
Also I don't think they were ever THAT close that Sousuke would treat him like a friend after years passed.
Though yeah, Sousuke's deal with Haru and his resolution were not handled as well as they could have been.
They crossed some words in High Speed! 1, but it was mainly to introduce Rin's dead dad issue to the Iwatobi boys.
He literally approached Rin and asked about his dead dad, then retreated when he realized that the others didn't knew.
The whole concept of making Sosuke into a whole character feels like pure marketing to me.
I'm talking about the LN here more than the anime. My issue is that they didn't add the context of their relationship from the book into the anime pretty much at all.
>What is High Speed! 2
High Speed! 2 was hastily made to ride the Free! wave.
Unless they said somewhere that Ouji was working on it since 2011 and I missed that.
>High Speed! 2 was hastily made to ride the Free! wave.
So? It's still canon, regardless whether that is even true or not, and it's still a decent read and gives you more insight into the characters and flows well as a sequel to the original book. And it still doesn't change that Kyoani spent more screen time on Kissme and Haruka's past in one episode than his past with Sousuke for the entire season. It really feels like their were in over their heads trying to write him. Even now it doesn't feel like they've really figured out who/what Sousuke is.
Nah translators are retarded
I like this anon. Honesty is the best policy when it comes to admitting Free's flaws.
You know your shit, anon.
I never said it was not canon.
I'm just saying that making Sosuke a Rin fan boy for HS2 and FrES feels like someone at KyoAni said "Marketing department says we need a new character in Samezuka so we can complete the 4 characters set. Here, this one already has a name and used to be Rin's friend. Just put some deep friendship story behind him."
I agree that he really feels rushed and unresolved.
Their interactions were too business like to me. They're just acquaintances since I can't really call them friends if they don't hang out, and they only raced once or twice.
It literally translates to "mo haru" with an extra "oh" at the end
He didn't feel rushed at all in the LN though. He was a pretty fleshed out character in his own right. That is the point I'm trying to make here. For whatever reason it was, they just didn't do a very good job at keeping his personality consistent from the novel into the anime.
Haruka didn't hang out with pretty much anyone outside of the swim club besides Makoto, but that doesn't mean they weren't his friends. There are different types and levels of friendship too. And to clafiry again, I'm not saying they were nakama or even all that close, but the dynamic they had was unique to them and I would still interpret it as friendship, even if they were too stubborn to admit it.
Like "mo oh Haru"?
The ー is a prolongation of the last vowel. In this case, it's a long ー and so the vowels should be greatly extended.
And the っ in this case is marking a break of form, and should be represented with a dash.
i know what a choon is. there is only one vowel. it's o which is pronounced "oh" in nip
moe or mou however you wanna spell it isn't moo.
nips can't into sounds
I count the swim club as part of "hanging out" since "spending time with" seemed too vague. You have to like the person to be friends, and Sousuke doesn't seem to like Haru enough to really see him as a friend. He only talked to him cause of Rin's letter and to give back his key holder. Its quite business like and its the same in the show. Though I think he will be more friendlier post ep13. I've been hoping they get friendlier but nope.
Why would they spell it as moo? The onomatopoeia for cows in moonspeak is もー not む
>He didn't feel rushed at all in the LN though. He was a pretty fleshed out character in his own right.
Yet it feels weird to me that he suddenly went from someone Rin used to know in HS1, to someone who would get mad and fight for Rin in HS2.
>For whatever reason it was, they just didn't do a very good job at keeping his personality consistent from the novel into the anime.
I personally suspect that they had one or two meetings were they marked Sosuke's main characteristics, and then maintained confidentiality between the projects.
So they had two writers, writing HS2 and FrES at the same time, without being able to see the other Sosuke..
>Why would they spell it as moo?
Because they're trying and failing at spelling an english onomatopoeia
I litrally hate Japanese
Kyoani just kinda sucks ass at adapting the characters well, period. Anime! Haru and LN Haru differ in quite alot of ways too. I feel like they just didn't know where to go with Sosuke/Haru's interactions at all. Shit writers a shit
I think you are reading "mooo-" as "むーっ", but I'm writing it in Hepburn romanization. It's literally "もーっ". Which is the onomatopoeia for a cow in Japanese.
But this is not the DJT. Let's stop.
;_; superior shota rin forever
RIP shota rin
Buts its not English, its cow. Using む would ruin the joke in the comic.
>Yet it feels weird to me that he suddenly went from someone Rin used to know in HS1, to someone who would get mad and fight for Rin in HS2.
Why is that? Even Sousuke admitted to himself that he felt he was acting strangely and just taking out his negative feelings on Haru. And in HS1 it was pretty clear that Sousuke and Rin had a special bond and that Sousuke felt deeply for Rin, even if he didn't express it openly to Rin's face.
>I personally suspect that they had one or two meetings were they marked Sosuke's main characteristics, and then maintained confidentiality between the projects.
So they had two writers, writing HS2 and FrES at the same time, without being able to see the other Sosuke..
I almost felt like that would be the case, except for the fact that they did a pretty damn spot on job with Kissme. Though his episode was much later in the season and thus later in production, but still, was the novel not finished being written before the anime went into production? It's difficult to tell.
Episode 2 Sousuke feels like a different person to his episode 4 self, and then he feels different again in episode 6, and then episodes 9 and 10, and yet another shift in epsidoe 11. It's like they're all similar enough, but don't quite blend into each other.
It was discussed plenty before. But I feel like Haru was properly adapted from the LN. It just felt weird because there was no inner monologue explaining his actions.
If anything, they did went overboard with the pool joke in the first episodes.
>Even Sousuke admitted to himself that he felt he was acting strangely and just taking out his negative feelings on Haru.
Just for reference sake:
>After he parted from Haruka and Makoto, Sousuke was looking up at the sky while he was walking down the path lined with plane trees. When he lets his breath out together with what has accumulated in his chest, his feelings calmed down just a little.
>He wonders why he ended up getting so worked up over it. Perhaps it had irritated him that they didn’t enter? Perhaps he had felt a sense of lacking from them starting something like club activities? No, it’s not just that. He had felt resentment towards himself that with a loss against Rin, he even ended up losing the chance to repay the debt. Then he ended up overlapping Rin with Haruka.
>Without knowing it, Sousuke was smiling bitterly. At best, he took it out on him for no reason. From Haruka’s point of view, what a terrible backlash it is. However, when he thinks of Rin’s feelings, he couldn’t stand to not say it after all.
They did said in an interview that they were quite lost with Sosuke up to episode 4 or something like that. I don't remember the exact quote right now.
I don't feel like he had so many breaks. He had like two different personalities up until episode 7.
They showed a serious Sosuke that wanted to make Rin a champion, pushing Haruka against a vending machine to keep him away and complaining to Rin when he barely lost a race.
And then there was the Sosuke that listened to Rin's friendship story while smiling and begged Rin to join the relay because he wanted to see the sight too.
mfw kyoani made cute genki shota rin into douchelord asspie in s1
yeah, but even then, that could've just been fixed if they decided to show us what the fuck he's thinking about more. i think the show would've benefited from narration ala Kyon from Haruhi
the pool obsession doesn't help cause he definitely didn't have a water fetish in the LN; water was pure escapism
I wonder what Free would of been like if there was a female as part of the Iwatobi team.
I still am amazed at how long it took people to realize Sousuke is a big softy under that tough exterior after it was revealed that his animal was a whale shark.
Whale shark, the toothless, slow moving, filter-feeding breature that is virtually harmless despite its intimidating size.
>the pool obsession doesn't help cause he definitely didn't have a water fetish in the LN; water was pure escapism
I liked the pool fetish though. That was a fun gag. And he was mostly just doing it to fuck with Makoto anyway.
In the LN, there's a girl named Aki (fellow swimmer & friend of iwatobi kids) who is spotlighted in both novels & got more screentime than Sosuke, Kisumi & even Gou (who is nonexistent in the novels) & yet they still fucked her existence completely over. Wonder Why...
>no inner monologue explaining his action
Seeing the amount of hate Haru's drama and resolution got, internal monologue would have probably helped a lot.
I really liked it in HS. It gave him a lot more personality.
For similar reasons they didn't put any male members in K-ON.
Makoto is so damn girly here, the gap moe is killing me.
Everyone looks much cuter than usual.
Unfortunately not. All got ripped and put on that Chinese site, but nobody has managed to crack the password yet.
>introverted stoic Haru working in a burger shop with Nagisa and dealing with customers
Mookoto is a gift from GodAni.
Can anyone explain the Makoto R63 pics?
Gou isn't nonexistent in the novels though. She made a few appearences, like that scene where she embarrassed Rin and tolk Makoto and Haruka that Rin moved into his grandma's house so he could transfer to Iwatobi and swim with them. And in High Speed 2 there is another girl named Satomi who was the library assistant with Haruka, and she has a fair bit of "screen" time as well. She was shy and kind of a bookworm, while Aki was more cheerful and outgoing.
I just noticed, you're completely right. So Kyoanus just decided to fuck it and remove the key aspect of their interesting relationship in the LN for more panderingshit.
>in High Speed 2 there is another girl named Satomi who was the library assistant with Haruka
I forgot to mention, she was also on the swim team
It's swimming in a flowery pool with your friends that makes it so exciting.
I'd say that's more being a neat freak than an autist
What about Tomo? The girl who gave Haru cookies for helping her out.
Going by this theory, Sousuke should be much friendlier to Haru now that his mindset changed and he races for times and to win.
He probably doesn't have a problem with Haru anymore. Then again who knows where Sousuke is now.
>lso I don't think they were ever THAT close that Sousuke would treat him like a friend after years passed.
They were also never on really bad enough terms that Sousuke would still act so antagonistic toward Haru after all these years. Quite the opposite.
Haru's resolution was shit and yea, it partially has to do with us not seeing his thoughts, but it also has to do with Kyoanus's terrible execution.
Instead of subtly showing him eventually liking competitive swim, they have him reject that shit to the point of temper tantrum and then have him suddenly change his mind for shit... i still don't know what reason but it wasn't good.
Yeah but she wasn't a swimmer, and that anon was asking what if there were girl swimmers in the anime. But in their defense, no one was really interesting in joining the club, whether guys or girls. Although I don't think they ever showed girls at meets either, not even as extras in the background. Maybe I need to watch the scenes again.
>High Speed! 2 was hastily made to ride the Free! wave.
>the dynamic they had was unique to them and I would still interpret it as friendship,
I'm not quite sure if it's friendship, but they definitely respected each other a lot. They even gave each other tips to improve their swimming.
>I feel like Haru was properly adapted from the LN.
I completely disagree. LN Haru was emotionally definitely much stronger.
Sousuke's antagonism toward Haru was never that bad in the novel. At they at least showed Sousuke admitting to himself that he was taking it out on Haru for no reason immediately after he yelled at him. In the anime, there was never a moment that shows Sousuke admitting that he knew he was acting stupid and was just venting his feelings out on Haru although if there was, prove me wrong; I would love to be wrong about this. It's difficult to tell exactly what the extent of his feelings about Haru were, but at least he smiled at him (or, in his general direction) in episode 13.
My bad then. Aki had a great role in the first LN, but she just played as the explainer for her brother's behavior towards Haru in the 2nd LN.
No, anime Sousuke never showed any kind of remorse for his actions.
And they did a good job.
He didn't show remorse, but his feelings toward Haru did show a gradual change. Although the pathway to that change didn't make a whole lot of sense.
>Don't get in Rin's way again
>Oh so Haru actually helped Rin, my bad
>Well, I still won't acknowledge him!
(what does that even mean, by the way)
>Actually I knew Haru helped Rin the whole time and thus never was in Rin's way to begin with haha
>I still won't acknowledge him though!
>But I'll smile at him in the finale and I guess I like him now even though none of our conflicts have been resolved!
>I really liked it in HS. It gave him a lot more personality.
Nailed it. Though some of that inner monologue would have made him pretty unlikeable at the beginning.
The foreshadowing for him enjoying it was a lot weaker than his outbursts against it. That's why his epiphany fell flat for me.
It was obvious it was pro or nothing since there wasn't really any other options shown, but I thought him stopping in the middle of a race was a very powerful moment at the time. Now in retrospect it doesn't mean as much anymore.
Summary is spot on and shows the retarded contradictory nature of anime Sousuke's character very well.
Though I guess the acknowledgement thing was just a way to hide his obvious jealousy.
It depends on the voice actor's delivery too, I think. Much of his negative thoughts toward the people around him, in my mind, were meant to be seen as funny or at least not malicious in nature. Like he'd say Makoto was being meddlesome, but actually appreciated the lengths he went to look out for him, etc.
Yeah, Haru's quite tsun. But judging by the reactions for the bento scene in episode 8, some autists are too dense to pick up that secretely caring part of his personality.
I liked his inner monologue in the very first episode though I'm probably in the minority on that.
Which was due to Nao's support who is unfortunately not in the anime, so Kyoanus could prolong the drama.
I'm not talking about the water autism ones, but the parts where he thinks how annoying his friends are (which is realistic though).
He didn't think about water in class, anon.
I think Haruka's resolution could have gone two ways:
>Admitting that he still doesn't know what he wants to do, but realizing that he wants to search for a dream in his own way. Being the only one to stay behind at a local college and really weighing his options.
>Being open to his scouting offers, and deciding he will try serious competitive swimming for a year and see how he likes it, and then take it from there.
Those, at least to me, would be more in line with Haruka's character than suddenly wanting to become a pro swimmer absolutely without a doubt. The most important thing for Haruka wasn't choosing a solid career path straight out of high school, but finding peace with himself and embracing his own future without fear, even if he doesn't know where it will lead him.
I'm retarded I quoted wrong.
>not liking dicks
>we'll never see it animated
It'd have been prime comedy material, especially Haru in the burger shop.
Why are you girls so obsessed with dicks and calling out others for not liking them? Is it because you want to pretend to be male?
I remember watching the preview for episode 11 and I thought maybe there'd be a chance for Sousuke to apologize to Haru for the whole vending machine incident. But of course that never happened.
>all this projecting
I just fucking love dicks and so do a lot of other anons.
>KyoAnus in charge of not crushing people's hopes and dreams
>newfag thinks this only happens in Free threads
THANK YOU BASED KYOANI
He was basically like "yea i know i said i didn't wanna do this... well i wanna do it now." I lulz. good one Kyoanus.
It really made no sense for him not to apologize to Haruka after what happened in episode 10. The fact that he saw the "sight"' and understood first-hand what not only Rin, but Haru felt during that relay last year makes him still feeling bitter toward Haruka make even less sense.
Awaiting proper scan and dick shop.
I see no reason to apologize since they aren't very close friends. Sousuke did show that he cares about Haru enough to go all the way to Iwatobi and tried to encourage him.
I want to lick it off and then apply new cream on the Harubutt.
You don't have to be close friends with someone in order to apologize to them. It was still a dick move.
You're right about that. And I don't begrudge Sousuke for not apologizing, even if I still think that it would add to his character if he did. He did apologize to Haru in the LN, for a much smaller offese.
If I begrudge anyone it's the writers of this show missing an opportunity. I don't see how anyone could lose in that situation.
>He did apologize to Haru in the LN, for a much smaller offese.
Did he really apologize?
Yeah. Basically Sousuke insulted Nao to Haru's face because he was angry at Haru for joining his school's swim team and quitting the Iwatobi SC (an ongoing conflict with multiple characters in the story), and didn't respect Nao because he's the swim team's manager and doesn't participate in swimming himself.
But then later Haru shows Sousuke a technique he learned, and Sousuke is amazed and says the person who taught him is awesome. Then Haru tells him he learned it from Nao and Sousuke apologizes for insulting him. Since Nao was not present in both exchanges, he was essentially apologizing to Haru. Though he was also apologizing for Nao. He also lowered his head when he apologized.
So, Sousuke had the capacity for humility in Haru's presence, in the LN at least.
Then I see no reason to make Sousuke keep acting like a rude faggot to Haru.
I wish they were drawn with nipples. I'd be able to watch this show if they at least had nipples. It breaks my entire immersion.
I'm not even gay it's just their bodies are disturbing. it's like they're aliens or worse, fish people.
Anime nipples look disgusting.
You're a special kind of autist
I love Sousuke but insulting Nao is going too far.
>acting like men without nipples and unrealistic body proportion is uncommon in anime
So you can't watch the majority of anime because there are no nipples?
Well he did apologize.
Nagisa is nearly lying on Rei. Such a shameless slut.
Small pink circles would be great. It's so off putting. They should of thought of a way to make them appealing as apposed to removing them all together.
Majority of anime doesn't have dudes in tights dancing around for half the episodes.
Their body proportions aren't the problem. It's their lack of nipples, which is off putting.
>Majority of anime doesn't have dudes in tights dancing around for half the episodes.
It's called swimming, you insecure child. It happens in real life too.
No KyoAni show has nipples
Most anime in general don't have nipples.
Yes, but in real life most men have nipple. I don't mind if it's an occasional episode in an anime where a character is shirtless and doesn't have nipples, but when being shirtless is a reoccurring theme through out the series it becomes a little off putting that no one has nipple. It almost makes me feel like in the universe of Free all men in the world were born without nipples, which is frankly weird.
Most kyoani shows don't have shirtless men on screen for most episodes.
Indeed. I'm glad he did.
You're about two years late to be complaining about Kyoani making male fanservice.
I'm pretty sure the freeboys were born in 92 and 93.
I'm not complaining about the fanservice. I'm simple criticizing the lack of nipples on Kyoani's male characters. It's like something is missing. Like a dick without balls, or even weirder a balls without dick.
So based. I hope they made Nagisa sell at least one smile to a customer, he should be the burger idol of the fast food joint.
Hopefully someone post the track soon.
Most male anime characters don't have nipples. Were you born yesterday?
>you'll never be Free
He looks so damn beautiful without his glasses
read the first reply
In the majority of anime you don't see the male characters shirtless for half or more than half of most episodes.
I can totally see it. He'd manage to sell tons of burgers with his smile.
Which doesn't help your point at all.
More shirtless bodies = more nipples which means more unnecessary work for the animators. Plus KyoAni never draws nipples, probably because it goes against their work ethic.
>Makoto and Rei moaning out of exhaustion
Please deliver KyoAnal.
The majority of SHIRTLESS men in anime don't have nipples. It's just a fact of life anon
Keep spilling that tea about Sousuke, anon.
The novels aren't anything special as the rest of you can see.
Drawing nipples is hardly work at all. It's just a circle. A simple circle would suffice because it would actually complete the human anatomy. If they were trying to shave off work that bad they would have not draw belly buttons, or noses.
>the LN is not good because I say so
Sure thing pal.
Nipples have a lewd connotation, belly buttons and noses don't.
This is more personal, but I also think most drawn nipples look gross.
Fuck off, cunt
Now where's your proof? Your ass obviously doesn't count.
Get over yourself.
Wait, if the second BD drama is suddenly about working, then what was with that joint training camp ending? And is there no Samezuka in this one?
You give yourself great advice
Yes, but in most anime you see men with shirts on most of the time, so whether or not they have nipples is mostly undisclosed. Any person born believing men had nipples would assume they had nipples. This gives a sense of correctness. Completely ruling off nipples from the face of the earth from the start makes you feel like something completely not right.
>an anime about half naked men with rippling abs and perfect physique
And I don't understand what would be so gross about a literal pink oval.
The jobs are for earning money for the trip I assume.
Didn't they say they need money for the training camp?
In last BD drama, they needed to get money to buy a new camera and decided to all go working, remember?
There's probably some Samezuka as well but for now all we have a spoilers from twitter or something, we'll know once we get leaks.
We're going in circles.
Let's agree to disagree.
I'm sorry your fap material is sullied by the lack of nipples on their hot swimmer bods but can you complain about this elsewhere, like your blog or something
>tfw 90% of these threads consist of complaining about how much the show sucks
Are you guys sure you like Free?
>legit criticism of the show is considered complaining or blog material.
You're almost as bad as people who block comments on youtube if you criticize them.
They are legit criticisms and we wouldn't discuss them if we didn't like it.
Petty you mean. This is a chinese cartoon by a studio that never draws them.
I like free. It just wasn't written that well in some ways. I'm still obsessed with the series and love the characters but it left a lot to be desired. Japan fan base hold this sentiment as well.
Is this from 2ch? Source?
But why do you like it if it's supposedly so bad?
You have never watched Free so how can anything you say be classified as legit criticism
What this anon said.
I wish KyoAni characters weren't so likeable, so I could finally be free.
No story is perfect or pleases everyone 100%. There is nothing wrong with acknowledging that
I never said it's bad, untwist your panties.
You can like something and still criticise it.
Just because its a criticism of a small aspect of the show doesn't make it petty or any less important to some people. If I was going to make a petty criticism I'd criticize the designs on their spats or something.
None of us have actually said the show sucks ITT. We are just discussing the shortcomings in the writing. Thinking something could be better doesn't mean you hate it
Nipples are distracting and completely unimportant in this show, why would you want them so much? It's not like anime is realistic.
Because it has cute half-naked boys, obviously. No one would be bothering to overanalyze the show if it was just another SoL about cute girls.
You have spent' the last half hour autistically obsessed with their lack of nipples. It really doesn't matter that they don't have nipples. Do you whine about Ken dolls too?
>pointing out obvious flaws in the writing
Your butthurt is showing.
Well as someone who would potentially watch the show, this is an issue I couldn't get over. No matter if it's an issue that applies to many people or only me, it's still a deciding factor in whether or not someone would watch the show.
I don't think small pink ovals would be distracting and I think they're important to abide by the general rules of anatomy. Say they didn't add eyebrows to any of the characters. Anime is not realistic so it's completely plausible that there would be a world devoid of eyebrows, but that doesn't make it any less weird.
It's because it had a plot and drama. If K ON had a plot with drama their threads would be just like this.
I'm not butthurt, just pointing out the obvious. There aren't a lot of quality shows about cute boys, so people latch on to this one, get obsessed with it and analyze the show way beyond the point a casual viewer would care about.
Of course it's not a matter of GREAT importance, but why else would I spend my time on an anime discussion board in a thread about a specific anime at all if not to criticize something that stopped me from watching the show.
You could spend half an hour praising the show and it would be just as valuable as me criticizing the show for any reason. The amount that matters doesn't mean that it doesn't still matter to some people. Even if the matter is small.
Most anime don't have nipples, let alone male nipples. It's become normal by now.
KyoAni put controversioal themes and questionabke writing into this show, of course people are going to discuss it.
It's not that it all sucks, but there were some really promising episodes in the beginning that made people believe that the drama this time would be better executed and more entertaining. Mostly people got their hopes up.
Free has some good things and some bad aspects, especially obvious in S2. I guess basically the best thing to do is take what you liked and ignore the rest while waiting for the movie to finally set everyone free.
Doubt it. Amaburi already has more of a plot than Free, yet no one really cares about it and the threads are full of circlejerking about the fairies and Kanye jokes.
Yes a plot, but does it have drama. Does it have friends hurting each other and put the viewer in the position of deciding whether they should forgive them or not.
Wind a best
>a movie to finally set everyone free
I don't want to be free though
>liking literal retards
Threads after episode 12 were so fucking stupid though
>>you will never swim in a cherry blossom pool with the Frees
YOUR TASTE IS FUCKING DISGUSTING. LEAVE /a/ ALREADY, LANDWHALE.
Typically a series that produces strong reactions from character and friendship conflict/drama will have that effect. People arguing so and so who a shit and arguing over who "did nothing wrong".
They were quite entertaining, especially the ones shortly before 13 aired.
What I don't get is that there was some Haru a shit after 11, it really took over after 12 when it was clear he felt bad about it still.
Kanye-sama >>>> other irrelevant plebs
>he still thinks it wasn't the same 2 autists spamming it in every thread
It was just that one anon. She is almost never in the threads at night though.
Best doujin by far
It was more than 2, people were just mad as fuck after 12 and took it out on Haru. Most of them calmed down after the finale, though. Gee, I wonder why.
Let's not start this again. There is virtually no reason to start this again
Can't you shits at least pretend you're not newfags?
comic, fan work, whatever you want to call it, it's my favorite depiction of Sousuke and Haru I've seen
It's on sadpanda, retard.
Tumblr pls go
How is that tumblr?
I've abandoned sadpanda (for homo), as it's het centered. MRM has way more BL and bara uploaded.
>not checking both
I do check both, but for different things. There's literally no difference in quality. MRM has full size pages and is just a ero gay only site, it's less annoying if I'm just in the mood to browse for homo. Sandpanda is for het only for me now.
I find MRM good for the fact that there are never load issues.
>it really took over after 12
Because people were assflustered about that episode for various reasons.
Rinfags were the most vocal shitposters, funnily enough.
I remember it being Makotofags or MakoHaru shippers masquerading as *fags actually.
Nah, Makotofags seemed pretty pleased with his development and MakoHaru shippers were too busy crying in the corner. Rinfags were the ones who wouldn't shut up about the stupid hotel scene.
>OST didn't even manage to break 5k
It's over, KyoAnus is finished.
Too bad, I kinda preferred the 2nd OST because it has more calm tracks.
>being this naive
The people angriest about shipping pandering scenes are always shippers themselves.
There were plenty of pandering scenes this season and none of them managed to produce that much butthurt, it wasn't just that.
Except those shitposters explicitely said they were assblasted as Rinfags.
Why do you shippers always think that everything has to revolve around shippingshit?
Uh, yeah, it pretty much was.
I can tell you that there were maybe 2 or 3 people analblasted about Rin's line, almost everyone else sounded like they were bothered by the fact that Rin "healed" Haru/Haru's magical puuru moment than anything else.
Plus, you can't really claim the people analblasted about Rin's line as Rinfags. Shit, they could have been Sousukefags for all you know. That's the retarded part about claiming x as being the sole source of something on an anonymous site.
ignore this post
>being this obvious
Protip: Only shippingwhales think everything has to be about shipping.
>Why do you shippers always think that everything has to revolve around shippingshit?
Why brother reasoning with a retarded fujoshit? Ignore that cunt and she'll go back to tumblr.
>saying they were Rinfags
>being this dense
Anon have you never been in a thread shitposting and blaming one group when you know you need a scapegoat?
All the shitposting after episode 12 was about Rin being dependent on Haru and there was plenty of Haru hate.
So yeah, Rinfags were acting like PMSing retards.
As one of the shitposters who said they were a Rinfag and kept bringing up the line in other threads I can tell you they weren't all Rinfags.
>That's the retarded part about claiming x as being the sole source of something on an anonymous site.
That's what you're doing right now. Fuck off.
When did I claim any one group to blame for the shitty response to that line?
You know tumblr is in the thread when the retardation goes up.
>2 or 3 people analblasted about Rin's line
Dude, we had whole threads with nothing but endless arguments about it, Harufags even started complaining that it prevented them from bitching about the puuru moment. Everyone only calmed down after they decided that the whole hotel scene "didn't happen". It doesn't even matter if these people were shippers or not, the butthurt that one line managed to produce was ridiculous.
Reading comprehension ITT sure is low.
I remember. I also remember the same arguments and same lines almost popping up thread after thread, and at the speed they were going it's not too far fetched to believe it was probably a small number circlejerking.
>Everyone only calmed down after they decided that the whole hotel scene "didn't happen".
Rinfags are so fucking hilarious.
When will freegots learn to ignore shitposting fujoshits?
Do you have the previous OST sales number? Or other OSTs sales numbers? I'm curious as to how bad/good 5k is for an OST.
I was actually expecting sales to be high, since buying the OST is the only way to get Clear Blue Departure.
Then again, we are talking about a 3.3k yen price while the other CDs were abou 1.2k so I can see if people were not totally willing to pay.
It's a Katou OST though and it's totally worth it.
First week sales for OST 1: 7,661
First week sales for OST 2: 4,977
No idea what the standard for OSTs is, though.
When you realize that at least 70% of the posters in these threads are fujoshits.
>BD/DVD Vol. 3 & 4 announced in the official site, they got their respective pages and info
>Still no cover preview
God damn it, KyoAni.
Nice projection, fujoshit.
He really is an angel.
Previews for cover and extras usually happen 3-4 weeks before release date, so we should be getting them for BD vol.3 this week or next.
The sad thing is that it's probably true. See this thread for proof: http://archive.moe/a/thread/114177784/
If we're getting 7 BDs this time, does that mean we should expect a Sousuke or 3P Samezuk cover?
Sousuke cover for BD 6 is likely.
Free is a show that directly panders to fujos do you really think Free threads aren't full of them

>The onomatopoeia for cows in moonspeak is もー
So bascially everything is correct and some faggot just didn't get the pun in the comic?
That said, I really want to shag a cow right now.
not enough rin.
I'm guessing Rin for cover and Rei for Side B. But which pair for Side A? Rei was already involved in the first two Side A. Doubt he'll have another one. Specially if he's having already the Side B.
>CJ Side A: Makoto and Rin
>CJ Side B: Rei
>Interview: Haruka and Rin
Wasn't it already announced that it will be MakoRin on side A and Rei on side B (+ Rin, I suppose)? And vol 4 will be SouRin side A and Rin side B.
No, basically it was a misunderstanding with not translating to standard Hepburn system and trying to use English phonetics for the untranslated (in order to keep the joke) もー.
Oh and Nagisa on the cover.
Yep, so vol 4 cover will be Rei, I suppose, then Rin, then Sousuke, then 6P. Makes sense in this order.
Ah, I missed that, then.
Well, sounds good to me. I wonder if Nagisa will be either sexy or cute on the cover. Makoto and Rin will probably be not that gay. And scientific Rei will be hilarious.
>Makoto and Rin will probably be not that gay
I hope they will be at least a little gay but this season's jackets seem to be less gay overall. Too bad.
Not 8P? I guess it might bee too cramp.
Maybe some day and My future, your future were nice too.
I don't know, it just seems less sensible for it to have Sousuke by himself and not the 3 Samezuks and 8P
More like the other 2 don't matter.
>Wanting to start a 5P/6P war
It's not even funny anymore.
It wouldn't make sense to have Nitori and Momo if they weren't in the covers, I guess. But 8P is more than acceptable too.
As of now, 6P seems awkward considering Sousuke still isn't friends with the Iwatobis. I hope this changes soon.
Yeah, I forgot those. All the songs are good on their own, though.
I would prefer 8P, too but Nitori and Momo don't seem to be featured on the jackets, so I doubt that they will put them on the cover. Too bad.
>>Wanting to start a 5P/6P war
Stop being so fucking sensitive.
>>Wanting to start a 5P/6P war
>It's not even funny anymore.
I'm not even starting a war, I'm just questioning the logic of showing Sousuke alone on a cover rather than having Samezuka 4p+Iwatobi 4p, or 8P at the end.
6P seems like a copout for the official stuff when 8P at least got singles.
8P didn't even happen, so it makes sense not to include it on the BD covers. 6P doesn't make any sense either.
I hope Sousuke gets his own cover on BD vol.6 and then 5P on the last cover.
KyoAni is kind of ignoring the whole lack of interaction and pushing 6P anyways, though.
Yeah about that.
It's 7 BDs, and the last one is reserved for a group picture. It's hard to fit 8 characters in 6 covers. But I guess it was possible.
>Nagisa and Rei
>Nitori and Momotaro
Sounds shit. I'm glad KyoAni gave Nagisa and Rei their own covers.
Merchandise and all that shit too.
KyoAni never did 6P merch.
They all seem to be mostly paired up in the upcoming merch though, so it won't be that awkward.
Can you really imagine Sousuke being in a group hug with 5P without it being awkward?
8P or 5P otherwise no dice
6P is inevitable anyway. They all show interest in Sousuke despite not talking to him much and Sousuke no longer has hard feelings toward Haru. With the mutual friendship with Rin they are all bound to interact at least sometime eventually. It's honestly a bummer that they didn't have interaction in the finale even though there were plenty of opportunities for both 6P and 8P
That's what makes it adorable though
8P doesn't make any sense as of now because the show seperated the teams way too much.
Nice concept, but wasted potential.
I think they wanted the finale to focus on Iwatobi and reserve the sakura puuru scene for 5P. But they already said that we will get 8P in the OVA, so yeah, it's inevitable.
They didn't have that much interaction but it's not heard to imagine they would all get along given the opportunity to hang out together. Kyoani still has plans for 8P in the future
I hope he is directly next to Haru in the group hug.
That's why I said "as of now".
>the awkwardness increases tenfold
awkward 8P group photo never
Good. They aren't even friends right now.
Yeah that's the point of what I was saying asshole
>show about friendship
>separate the two teams as much as possible
Good job KyoAni.
S2 was barely about friendship anyway, unfortunately. S1 did it much better.
Because we need more drama and shit. At least we'll have the OVA and the movie. There's also hope for the BD drama tracks.
>talks about 8P
>doesn't post a 8P picture
Gou is love, Gou is life.
It was still very much about friendship. It just wasn't in the way people were expecting, or if I'm being honest, what they wanted. All there needed to be were more joint practices and bam, instant 8P with all of the 5P so there. No one gets left out and everyone develops more and faster as characters (and as swimmers) as a result
Why did you post a picture of a turd?
Oh yeah you're right, I just noticed Amakata in the back
I'd rather get more 5P and interactions between characters other than MakoHaru, NagiRei and HaruRin.
The NagiRin and MakoRin tracks were nice, and the new BD drama track sounds promising with HaruNagi and MakoRei.
Such a silly mistake.
Clean your eyes with this.
I want them to exchange jackets with the opposing team member close in size to them
Sorry, no garbage allowed.
>not wanting Nagisa to wear Sousuke's
>not wanting Makoto to wear Momo's
Rei looks a little bit odd here.
>Rin and Rei
>Haru and Momo
>Sousuke and Makoto
>Ai and Nagisa
In case you were wondering
What makes you think I don't want both?
It's just the same retard posting the same shitty screenshot over and over again.
This is the only 8P we got and it made me cringe.
It did a fucking poor job of portraying the friendship as well as in S1.
>not realizing the corniness is what makes it great
Not just you.
It didn't though. It just didn't focus solely on 5P. That's what you're really upset about
I kinda wanted a track of them going shopping for glasses together, but delivery boys are nice too. I hope Rei compliments Makoto this time instead of the other way around like usual.
I'm still waiting, KyoAnus.
>they will never go shopping for glasses together
why would you do that to me
Birthday OVA never
It was embarrassing.
I meant seeing him laugh. We only heard him so far.
Not the same. I want Haru bucking in uninhibited fits of laughter.
>birthday spreads never again
What about this show isn't if you really think about it? It's meant to be fun. If you take the characters' dignity too seriously then you set yourself up to be embarrassed.
It's not just 5P, Iwatobi friendship was also put on the backburner for a good part of the season.
> their friendship
Here we go again. They weren't friends in the LN for god sake, yes they managed to resolve things and had a nice conversation and share croquettes but that doesn't make them friends suddenly. And it's obvious from their interactions in ep2 that they knew each other before (not like the anime pretended they didn't) and even if the conflict seems weird to you because it was supposed to be resolved, I don't find it that hard to believe that Sousuke would be shaken after seeing Rin's state in the regionals the previous year and then what they pulled with the relay which could have prevented Rin from getting scouts. Not saying it was super well handled but it's not like it's the only thing that was badly written this year but reading again and again that they butchered a meaningful friendship when there is nothing like that to begin with, seriously stop. Also not everyone likes to have the harem mc to have every single character's story revolve around him.
I want to see shota birthday parties.
Ya blew it.
Did Sousuke and Rin get the Volume 2 interview?
But Rei didn't know them as shotas.
I bet that nerd didn't have any friends and had to celebrate his birthday alone. ;_;
How many of the Frees had friendless backgrounds? Rei seems definite, Sousuke probably was alone after Rin left. I can't see Nitori having many friends either until S2.
Shit is kinda sad.
Can someone translate this? Apparently Zakki was fangirling again but I don't want to trust fujos.
Over Makoto or Tattsun or both?
>thinking this thread doesn't have fujos
>you're probably a fujo yourself
>wah wah prove something to me because translations are wrong!!!
But it's not translated.
Speak for yourself.
Since when has he fangirled over Makoharu? The most I've seen is Zakki fangirling over makoto and being happy that they didn't get fully separated.
Hosoya says that Rin and Sousuke have a typical male friendship while Makoto and Haru's relationship is "lovely/cute". Then Shimazaki says they are like girlfriend and boyfriend.
>Then Shimazaki says they are like girlfriend and boyfriend.
Stop projecting, Zakki, just because you want Makoto to be your boyfriend.
Thank you anon, I almost translated it as adorable.
And I suppose Rin and Haru are girlfriend and girlfriend. Hilarious.
Can't blame him, everyone wants Makoto as their boyfriend.
What's this from?
Audio commentary from the 2nd BD.
I have another Free in mind for my boyfriend.
all of them
Awesome. More audio stuff that will never get translated in full. Is it just the two of them or does it include Mamo and Tattsun too?
I want all of them to be my ___friends. ;_;
I hesitate to ask, but do any of the releases on nyaa have the commentary?
Suzuki is there too. I think the guests change every time.
I only have the raw versions, but they do have them. Some anon said the subbed versions don't though.
Which is the raw BD version? I'm on there now and can't seem to find it through all the end of season compilation downloads
I'm so hyped for the 4P radio with those three and Mamo. Shit's going to get crazy, Hosoya Mamo and Suzuki are fucking nuts.
>[RUELL-Next] Free! (BD 1920x1080 x264 AAC PGS(JP))
But it doesn't seem to have any seeders. I checked again and looks like Zero-Raws have them too.
>implying the boyfriend isn't Haru
Thanks, I'll give this a try.
Zero-raws only have the BDs from S1 so far that I can see.
Thanks, anon. What does Suzuki say?
I thought you were talking about the S1 ones, my bad.
There are no raws of S2 BDs on nyaa I think and Commie didn't include the commentaries in their release either.
Nah that's okay. I will actually just dl the files from the ZR versions since that's all I'm after.
Yeah and I don't think the raw version is up on nyaa proper. There's a .rar torrent though from Alm5leb but fuck that.
They are probably on Share, but I can't into that site.
What's with the shitty inclusions in the BDs this time around? Are Kyoani trying to cut costs or something?
The producer is shit (no FrFrs on every volume in S1, no staff commentaries) and now he probably thought that the target audience would prefer more shitty radio shows and drama tracks instead of animated shorts.
Free BD bonuses have always been quite shit compared to KyoAni's other shows.
I'm especially bummed about the lack of staff commentaries, I wanted to see how they animate the water.
I guess they think fujos don't care about the hows and whys and instead want to focus on blatant pandering where they can.
Probably for the same reasons that the VA events will never be released. They're either waiting for another big ticket item out of the series (movie) or aren't convinced they'll sell with more on them.
Well, no matter how much people complain about Free, at least it's still better than Chuu2Ren, KnK and Tamako.
How are radio shows pandering?
Can somebody translate this? It looks hilarious.
>Free parents hijinks never
Worth it for Kanna and Mochizou
Worth it for Shinka
I really can't decide whether I prefer the S1 or S2 covers. KyoAni covers are so plain.
Nagisa: Quiz time! What is the thing that hardens the more you H?
Makoto: H... Nagisa, what are you saying? Hardens...
Haru: Don't know
Rei: It's a pencil! Easy!
Makoto: Ah, a pencil! That's what it was!
Nagisa: Mako-chan, shut up.
Nitori: Quiz time! What is the thing that hardens the more you H?
>the more you H
You lost me.
So this comic basically shows a pureness test.
Samezuka confirmed for sluts
That looks so fucking disgusting, like a centipede.
Makoto is the only slut there. Look how much he blushes.
Samezuka confirmed for watching porn together
He was just getting hot from the weather.
Iwatobi confirmed for purest little girls.
Little girls don't watch porn.
I bet all sorts of lewd shit happens in the Samezuka dorms at night.
Samezuke Academy confirmed sex ed classes
All-boys schools are the gayest after all.
>6 weeks until the drama CD
>5 months until the OVA
Makoto has really big hands
>That deformed pose
It's S1 all over again.
Not after episode 13.
There are no males in this show.
It makes me super mad that they're never going to release those events.
Even the event for fucking Samurai Flamenco got released, Kyoani could just bundle the events in one BD and be over with it but no, they don't realize it's going to sell perfectly well.
Don't tell me they're waiting for the next event to bundle them all together, I don't want to believe.
Maybe it's okay to believe sometimes.
I mean we even got fucking pirates and pajamas.
I'm still waiting for space pirates.
Yeah well pajamas are overrated.
You're on /a/ which automatically makes you a fag.
The OVA better be gay as fuck to make up for it.
Gou, Rin, Nitori, Momo, and background people are in the track too. No Sousuke though.
>pajamas are overrated
>this fucking faggot
>Rin, Nitori, Momo, and background people are in the track too.
Nice. But do they interact with Iwatobi? And are the background people new?
Yes, Samezuka meet them by chance on their way out shopping.
Are there proper HaruNagi and MakoRei interactions or was the part-time job thing just shortly mentioned?
> No Sousuke
Even fucking side character Momotarou gets to be there but not Sousuke. What's next, Nakagawa gets a track but not Sousuke. Fuck you Kyoanus
Honestly I'm done with this shit.
Goodbye free threads, I'll go back to my other animus
Where the fuck is Sousuke then?
They totally are. We got like four different spreads of the Frees in their sleepwear. And well I guess this one is the only one where they're all wearing matching gay pajamas I guess, but it's not exceptional.
I want a spread where they're idols.
But at least 2 Frees suck at music.
still trying to drink cola
I didn't listen to the track itself. I'll post the summary I read though:
Too busy stealing croquettes at the supermarket
>having anything to do with music
They just have to dance around, look good and handshake greasy fans.
Taking piggy out for a walk.
What does this say?
I hope the more tracks are out the less irrelevant characters will appear. I want more of the mains.
>not doctors and nurses
Step it up.
Some mysterious incident happened at the end. What happened we have to wait for the next track.
Bacon or pork chops?
I'm getting interested now. I hope the drama track extras will end in something hilarious.
>the Frees need money
>some incident happens that makes everyone lose their innocence
>Sousuke isn't there
This is starting to sound just like my doujins.
>some incident happens that makes everyone lose their innocence
I think this incident happened during the training camp though. I'm telling you, a bear raped them all.
I wish some depraved fujo would just draw a doujin where Sousuke fucks the pig.
Audio rips when
> just like my doujins
just what kind of shit tier doujins with no Sousuke are you reading anon?
>Yeah well pajamas are overrated.
Those are fighting words, you ungrateful faggot.
I was implying that Sousuke hired some fat faceless men to turn the other Frees into whores to get money.
There's a doujin of Sousuke fucking a squid while thinking of Rin.
implying Sousuke would let anyone but him give Rinrin the dick
>wanting shoulder cancer in your doujins

it's puffy vagina

That whole scene just made me laugh when I finally noticed the boner.
I'd taste some of his meat pie if you get what I mean.
I don't get it.
>not wanting dolphin ass
Hopefully there's some unique interactions.
Asspussies are not vaginas.
I have a feeling Haru's is tight, but really elastic.
I still don't get it.
Is it this shop and I didn't get the reference because I'm not 'murrican? Or is it one of those "two girls, one cup" kind of videos?
You must live in Europe or something, right?
>successfully goggles it and finds the homepage
>still doesn't get it
You're beyond hope.
Oh, right. We are on USA's day time.
I'm a Yuropoor and still got the reference.
>Rin making fun of Haru
>Momo and Nagisa sharing their love for food (burgers)
>Rin buying Makoto and Rei a drink
>Momo admiring Makoto's strength and muscles
Now I got my hopes up.
Isn't five guys more of an east coast thing?
I'm neither in 'Murrica nor Yurop. I live the sad life of a third world country. Importing is heavily restricted, so I weep inside every time some new merchandise is posted here because I know I won't be able to buy it despite having the money to do so. You lucky bastards better be thankful.
I can see Samezuka going to a burguer shop on their free time and meeting Nagisa and Haruka, but how are they going to casually meet Makoto and Rei? Unless they receive some package at the dorms at the start/end of the drama.
>Unless they receive some package at the dorms at the start/end of the drama.
They deliver the monthly industrial size box of dragon dildos to Samezuka.
Time to move out of that shithole.
What country? I know that feel anon
With Haruka in the kitchen and Nagisa as the cashier this fast food joint is going to get really popular.
>inb4 Haru as the cashier and Nagisa in the kitchen
The comedy has to come from somewhere.
Mackerel burgers, though. I wonder if Momo's interaction implies him unknowingly asking for a double cheese burger just to find out in the first bite that it was salty fish burgers.
Argentina? I masochistically lurk the buyfag threads once in a while just to see what I will never possess.
>Nagisa: Then, Haru-chan, how about this? "Looking for new staff for the launching event of the new mackerel burger, mackerel lovers welcome!"
>Rei: Wait a second! Mackerel lover he might be, this is a hamburger shop! A hamburger shop that sells even smiles, how can Haruka-senpai do it?
You are onto something, Anon.
>Momo starting to dislike Haru because of his mackerel burgers
>trusting Haru with your food orders
Seeing how you can only order mackerel in the shop, and Haru loves and cooks good mackerel, I would fully trust him on this one.
>>trusting Haru with your food orders
I fail to see how Haru would be bad at handling orders. It's just the customer service that would be shit.
>the customer service that would be shit
that's what I'm referring to
>How does this make you feel?
I hope they have an annoying little kid taking a long time choosing the toy he wants for his happy meal or something like that.
Things get out of proportion and both Nagisa and Haruka get scouted to become respectively an idol and a chef. 10/10 absolutely hilarious no I can't come up with anything actually funny either.
I'd really like to see Nagisa being popular as a cashier though. I want Nagisa to bathe in adoration because he deserves it.
If Haruka's cooking he won't need to sell smiles though. Maybe they can make him distribute fliers or some shit to promote the mackerel burgers. This wouldn't end well though.
>Maybe they can make him distribute fliers or some shit to promote the mackerel burgers.
Better idea: Make him wear the shop's mascot costume, he loves that shit.
>mountain of strawberry flavored protein powder on everything
Make him dress as Ronald WcDonalds? That sounds horrifying.
I'd rather swim in a cherry blossom pool with Gou chan
Nah I bet the mascot is some huge moefied mackerel.
I'd take a bite out of Makoto's buns.
Is this homosexual/fujoshit bait still not over yet?
Makoto will be the test taster
It's over, this is just a pointless circlejerking general.
If I eat the mackerel burger, will he let me taste his Makoto burger?
No, Makoto isn't some easy slut.
There's still new material trickling in, but anything significant is far later on

Fucking disgusting. Use some chlorine, fags.
Eh, these threads are still pretty pointless and lifeless most of the time. They were more fun when the show was airing.
Nobody is forcing you to come. Feel free to fuck off and hide the threads.
Same to you, pal.
Makoto is only meant for monogamous tender vanilla loving with me.
I only drop by occasionally to see if there's anything new, why so defensive?
Are those nipples upside-down?
>come into a thread to stir shit
>not expecting to get called out on
Why are you so retarded?
I want to squeeze his nipples
If you're blind maybe
Why do you take everything as an attempt to stir shit? I just said the threads are boring.
As much as I hate you anon, at least we can both agree Makoto deserves love.
From multiple men of course.
Just ignore her, some cunts in these threads are far too sensitive.
Is he gonna stick it up his ass?
My love is enough for him, no need to include faceless men who can't even kiss him.
If Rin can stick 7 normal ones up his ass, then a true mackerel lover should be able to fit that thing.
>you'll never be that plushie
But Haru is pure
Clearly it's because you're ruining the "comfiness"
Are you saying becoming one with what you love is impure?
They kiss him everywhere, unlike you who can't satisfy Makoto's deepest need of for many cocks
Tumblr please go
Fujo-chan is mad you didn't like her boring and stale 'jokes' she keeps repeating and forcing in every thread.
Sousuke had Kissme
How is talking about Sousuke and Haru's distant but respecting relationship in the LN tumblr?
Throw it to the trashcan
Bring out my dragon dildo and lube.
To get him out of the box of course, lube helps in case he's stuck.
The two main prerequisites for comfy threads are comfy show + happy fanbase, neither of which applies to Free.
take him to 5 guys
I only see one dick in this picture.
Send him back.
But why are you so angry?
I'll eat anything that Makoto offers me with a smile. Anything.
It's her time of the month, she can't help it.
Take the tape off and keep him.
>sending him back without sucking his dick
Way too many faggots itt.
>fujos passive-aggressively shitting on eachother for being fujos
Release him and make him into my waifu.
Don't forget the metashitters pointing out everything in the threads for absolutely no reason.
I seriously hope this isn't a thing in Japan.
Yeah, because metashitters are certainly the cause of all problems in these threads.
We should talk about MakoHaru being canon instead.
>point out that the threads are full of fujoshits
>"f-fuck off metashitter"
>shitposters come to threads they don't like and complain about normal things on /a/ like circlejerking and accuse everyone of being fujoshits
This is the problem, you included.
You wouldn't eat Makoto's shit?
We all know this already
>Help him up and carry his disoriented body to my living room
>Let him rest on my couch as I rest on a chair
>Deal with his freak out when he realizes he's still on the clock
>Ask him if he's OK
>"You don't have to tell me what happened, but you do have to eat this," as I hand him a bowl of eggs
>Ask if he needs a ride home
>Tell him to take care
>normal things on /a/ like circlejerking
Generals for finished shows are frowned upon and often get deleted by mods, but of course Freefags have the biggest victim complex on the board.
>Someone is mad
Did they get more pandering in the recent magazines again?
>Not properly adding an image to the book cover
You did it wrong and I'm too lazy to do it right.
Only if he wanted me to, and knowing what a good boy Makoto is he would never do that.
And this is the actual cancer that's killing the threads.
>Generals for finished shows are frowned upon and often get deleted by mods
Sure, that's why there are daily K-ON threads, am I right.
They were way too analpained at the idea of Haru and Sousuke being friends and only listed information from the LN everyone already knows without having to read it and then talking about the anime even though the point was that the anime left out context from the LN- there was more to their interactions than sharing croquettes. They also acted like people were saying they had this super close friendship even though no one said that. Free threads in /a/ typically don't have anyone THAT against the idea that they could have been friends (it is usually the opposite, to my observation), so that was obviously someone who doesn't visit threads very often. Also
They are obviously a tumblr newshit
>I hand him a bowl of eggs
Are you telling me they aren't canon best friends?
On another note, Keion threads are fifty times comfier than Free threads simply because of the fact that its fanbase consists of smelly otaku happily fapping to moeblobs and not angry fujoshits who bitch about everything.
Whatever you say >>115283060
The fact nobody comes into K-ON threads to shitpost about fujoshits is likely another big factor for its "comfiness".
Maybe Free threads would be less hostile if people like
wouldn't come here.
Of course no one would shitpost about fujos for an anime with only girls as the main lead. There is also no fighting in the threads because K-ON has zero drama in its plot and so the fans are only there for light and fluffy time
Are you honestly surprised that people on 4chan are mean to you?
Of course not. But you're missing the point.
He's completely right though, metashits are the true cancer of any threads.
So you're saying metashitting about fujoshits and Free threads being semi-frequent is the right thing instead of letting people circlejerk in peace?
Like always, the night crowd always trumps the day crowd. At least this thread is almost dead.
People who dump shitty /cm/-tier fanart without any comments are cancer too.
You must love K-ON threads then.
If you actually think metashitting is more cancerous than "muh canon yaoi ship" then there's no place on this board for you m8.
>"muh canon yaoi ship"
You should stop projecting and being paranoid, this never happened in this thread before you came here with your delusional metashitting.
