What You Need to Know:
- Sit down and buckle up. It's coming. Free! has been somewhat of a unique juggernaut against many other shows within the anime community and specifically the Fujoshi community. That being said, it's enjoyed for it's portrayal of a high school boys swimming club.
- Free! was given two seasons as well as a movie. Free!, for better or worse, was produced by Kyoto Animation. The cause for concern is that Kyoto Animation is notorious for not making a third season of anything ever. They like to let their series die after one or two seasons by giving OVAs and/or a Movie post those series. However, today that could be changing because we could be getting a third season of Free!
- Recently at a viewing event for the movie that was released on Blu-Ray and DVD on the 20th, the picture below was shown at the end which says that the Free! series is currently getting a new animation! There is no word of whether or not this is going to be a series, OVA, or movie. However, two of the kanji used in the announcement usually refer to TV animation which means that WE COULD BE GETTING A THIRD SEASON! Free fans rejoice!
