Get ready for more of KyoAni’s hot swimming boys, because Free! is coming back for a whopping three anime films this year. The announcement came during this weekend’s High Speed! -Free! Starting Days- event, which revealed plans for two new Free! compilation movies and an all-new anime film.
First up we have Free! Timeless Medley Kizuna (Bonds) on April 22, focusing on the Iwatobi Swim Club, and Free! Timeless Medley Yakusoku (Promise) on July 1, focusing on Rin and Sousuke. Both will work in new footage, and you can see a trailer for Kizuna below, including a sample of Style Five’s “Rising Free” theme song.
As for the all-new anime movie, Free! Take Your Marks will serve as a sequel to Timeless Medley, taking us to early spring time as Haruka prepares to graduate. The film is currently set to open this fall.
