Interesting...I was not expecting this but good for the fans.

Kyoto Animation's has quite a bit of projects next year! I look forward to them.

Me a few days ago: Too bad the Free! franchise is over with now.

Me five seconds after the Twitter announcement:

(I will never abandon this fandom again)

So Free! Season 3 (Fre3! maybe?) could be about Haru, Rin, and the upper class men in college while jumping back to Rei/Nagisa/Gou preparing to graduate high school. All I want is two things: Sousuke getting more closure and international swimming competitions! Oh and more ship tease please; it's good for my fujoshi soul (and wallet). :3

Wow, 3 TV anime, and one movie project in 2018?

I get that they're already working pretty far with Violet Evergarden. But isn't the archer club anime is for fall season? I hope it won't impact the production of either series.

I mean, something as to fund Violet Evergarden.

...just kidding, I actually don't mind Free. It can be fun.

More Free! is good. All I want is MakoHaru living together in Tokyo.

Thank you for this beautiful comment. The amount of burn they must be feeling has to be near critical level.

Jokes aside, I'm super pumped for the return of Free! as well. Really hope the ships become canon this time around. (Yes, I like my loli shows and my Yaoi/fujoshi bait series equally).

Man, another season 3 confirmed for 2018. This is nuts. Very good news for the fans and I’m happy for them. You know, I was actually thinking that KyoAni would never do a season 3 for any of their works because they won’t count to that number based on their history. (Not including movies of any kind) Guess now that’s not true anymore.
