Really glad the male seiyuus are staying. I'm looking forward but I'd still prefer a sequel to Eternal Summer rather than this. Oh well, better than nothing.

Someone pointed on Tumblr the subheading in the movie title implied there will be more Free! after this movie too. :>

So....it's a prequel! Makes more sense than a sequel unless it was about Haru and Rin in the Tokyo Olympics.

Cool because I liked the middle school story from the light novel. Also, more Kisumi is great. Very Happy I'm going to pray that Funimation gets the rights to this but change some of the VAs to match their younger voices.

A Free! Movie? Yes!

Although I do feel kind of picky saying that I would rather have a sequel than a prequel, but hey at least I'm honest.

And those younger designs are getting very closer to supreme shota status...

I am actually really happy about this. We get backstory in anime form and it doesn't feel like KyoAni is just milking the series.

I know, right? Sign me up!

I really hope we still have a prayer of FUNi working with Discotek to collab on the release of Free!'s BD.
