And then the fangirls rejoiced, singing songs of the second coming of a god.

YES.

KyoAni , I'm ready for more eye candy.
"Children of Japan. And those who were once children. Listen! This is not a dream. This is not fiction. In reality, your superheroes were always fighting. To teach viewers courage and the meaning of justice! No matter how many enemies there are. No matter how strong evil is. Just remember. Does any another country have so many heroes? Has any another country been protected by multiple superheroes? Stand with me, friends! Remember when you used to watch your superheroes!
Once you may have given up this dream. But today, you can be a hero!"

Hey, this is not only limited to fangirls!
Free! is actually the highest rated KyoAni show for me. Clannad and all this Key stuff was way too overdramatic and full of meh writing (Well, it's Key.I don't expect quality), their moe stuff is hit or miss but Free actually delivered exactly on what it wanted to be.
I am glad KyoAni is giving this another season.

Better a decent show like this than crap like Kyoukai no Kanata, Hyouka or Tamako Market.
Stone Ocean adaption when?

I now feel obligated to watch the upcoming second season despite not really liking the first season. However a small part of me is excited. While I didn't really like it overall it was a nice anime that I looked forward to every week.

Kyo ani WHY U DO DIS? other than money of course

Will Kyo ani ever manage to break out of it's formula of generic and mediocre plot and characters disguised by eye candy? I would love to see that...


Pass.

The last end card from season one said 'see you next summer', so probably it will air in summer 2014.

I was expecting this from miles away but thank you KyoAni, thank you Utsumi Hiroko, without you, we would never have had this. I bow down to you.

Now, where's my male idol anime KyoAni? You can do it, come on. Please!

KyoAni really needs to animate something out of the box soon. Free is fine, but with the potentials of animation they have, they could've gone really far then they are now if they just think with diversity on what series to animate

True, but I take Free over kyoukai no kanata anytime. Actually, another KyoAni sports show would be pretty cool.

Well for once I'm not disgusted at KyoAni since Free! was actually something different from the pile of moeshit they keep producing.

Sweet, KyoAni might actually get a second good show. They sure are improving after dozens of mediocre stuff.
