Trailer For Free! Anime 2nd Season

Here’s something that will get some people I know really happy. It’s a brief 15 second trailer for season 2 of the swimming anime, Free! The trailer was posted by Kyoto Animation on their YouTube channel.

Like all good teaser videos, not much information is shown apart from the words at the end, “Ato Sukoshi”, which translate as “coming very soon,” while the voice over says, “Summer is coming. The first and the last eternal summer for us.”

More information may be coming after an event at Akihabara UDX Vision happening from May 3 to the 5th. We’ll keep you posted.

Free! teases 2nd season is coming

Popular swimming anime, Free!, has wrapped up their first season leaving many fans wanting for more. Anyone watching the last episode recently may have caught the hint that the studio, Kyoto Animation, may have works up their sleeve. We hear that they’re bringing another helping of Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!  and light novel work, Kyoukai no Kanata, but there’s also some more Tamako Market coming out.

So what are the chances of Free! seeing a 2nd season then? While nothing concrete has been announced, the last episode did finish with the message, “see you next summer…”.

If you’d like to help the cause and possibly show the creators that the fans would love more Free!, there is a petition on change.org which can’t hurt the possibility. They need 20,000 signatures and currently have just under 8,000 so add your name to it, it all helps. Here’s what the message going to the studio says,
