The title for this mini movie is hilariously weird, but I'm intrigued by the extras.

Sounds like a fun, cute addition to a fun, cute series so far. Wink Hope Free gets a home video release stateside.

While I feel that there isn't enough of Gou-chan and Amakata Miho, I'm probably going to be including this in my Amazon order for September...

Wow, good things for me do come into threes! First I finally catch up on my backlog of news on Crunchyroll and discover that the Figuarts Zero line is releasing Kuroko's Basketball figures (albeit really crappy looking figures but I'll take it)! Then Alter is releasing a Haruka 1/8th scale figure for Free! (at an undisclosed time and price but still totally stoked!). And now this, I was already gonna get it but this is just the icing on the cake! Mind you I lament it does not come with English subtitles. That would've been nice.

Yeah, I was disappointed at the Kuroko figures. They could have done better. Confused

And yea, I was hoping this would come with english subs.

I know Bandai can release some nice looking Figuart Zeroes ( my Battle Version Ace looks gorgeous) but then they release some real stinkers (like Keith Goodman from T&B). It's a little sad that they finally release something for the series (and not the mini coin figures) and they are kinda funky looking. I'm still buying them though. I'm just too thrilled not to.

The BD for Free! looks really nice ( I just went to preorder it from CD Japan Very Happy). I guess I was lucky that Karneval got subtitles at least.

Mind sharing a source for the Haruka figure? Or images, if any?

And I'm super excited about these shorts, goodness~ This anime's like a nice dose of happy during the week.

I think it's just an announcement right now (no actual unpainted prototype yet). MFC's page just has the announcement at the moment.

I am soooooo going to buy this figure. I will buy all of them if they make them (please Alter, make them).

I saw it in an article on Crunchyroll. All it was was a concept art picture but it got me super excited.

Here's the link: http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2013/07/26-1/release-of-first-free-figure-penciled-in
