According to Mainichi, Kyoto Animation has announced on Niconico Live that a TV original anime "Free!" will be aired from July. It will be about a high school swimming club.

Key Visual of "Free!"
Short trailer of "Free!" aired as a TV ad of KyoAni this March

Cast
Nanase Haruka: Shimazaki Nobunaga
Matsuoka Rin: Miyano Mamoru
Tachibana Makoto: Suzuki Tatsuhisa
Hazuki Nagisa: Yonaga Tsubasa
Ryugasaki Rei: Hirakawa Daisuke

Story:
Haruka, Rin, Makoto and Nagisa used to be the members of the same swimming club in elementary school. They won a tournament just before their graduation and then they went separate ways. Time passed and now Haruka has been spending the high school days idly. One day, Rin comes to Haruka and challenges him in a swim. Haruka easily gets overwhelmed by Rin's swimming skill. In order to beat Rin, Haruka establishes the "Iwatobi High School Swimming Club" by gathering Makoto and Nagisa again and drafting in Rei.

Ladies, REJOICE.
Boys, SEETHE.



It's already a masterpiece and it hasn't even aired yet. Only a LEGEND.

Major disappointment that it isn't a sequel of the FMP! franchise. It was utterly foolish of me to hold onto the little hope I had for more of a fantastic franchise; I cannot express how disappointed I am with KyoAni's works as of late. None of their latest projects strike me as particularly interesting or excellent.

Another FMP would be amazing as well.
Second Raid was one of the best mecha bits I've seen w/ Gurren Lagann and Geass.

But KyoAni keeps slaying while y'all haters keep seething, as usual.





@ the pressed soul who reported this thread.
Closed or not (this thread), it won't change the fact the Free! will air and
you boob-loving creatures will stay madder than the Mad Hatter.

a show full of fanservice for the girls who do nothing but bitch about how the shows filled with fanservice for guys are ruining anime.

safe to say, it's just another KyoAni show I'm going to ignore. just like every one of their shows (save chuunibyou) since K-On!

Personally, I think women deserve a show like this. I might even watch it if it gets good reviews.

And that's all that matters.
Shit like Flowers of Shitvil will be paid dust when this glorious anime comes out.



Perfect.

no need to get butthurt over the truth. personally, I really couldn't care less. I just think it's hilarious that all the girls who whine about how fanservice shows are ruining anime, yet they squee and rave the minute KyoAni makes a fanservice show starring males.

besides, KyoAni has been dead to me since they do nothing but make unconditional moeblob PoS ever since K-On! was a hit. the only things they've touched since then that I've watched and enjoyed have been The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya movie, and Chuunibyou. the only reason I watched Chuunibyou was because how much people were raving about how good it was, and it was more than the typical KyoAni moeblob. which it was.

Opinion, not truth. Educate yourself.

Like you little boys didn't bash Kim to Boku when it came out.
Enough with the hypocrisy, kid. Both genders have the same faults no matter how you try to look at it.

So it's your opinion? Okay not valid.
Bye.

Sis, I can't even image how much you hate Flowers of Evil. I swear this is probably the 5th post of yours that I saw criticizing the series. Now I don't even feel like checking it out...

On topic, SUPER EXCITED FOR THIS!

Sis don't mind me.
They say Flowers of Evil is good. I just hate things that are ugly.

But yes. This is my most anticipated anime of the year.
Pinkie must be overwhelmed with joy right now and is in her room doing some stuff...
