According to photographs of a poster at the "Free! Special Talk Event" for the series, a second season of Kyoto Animation's Free! has been announced. No other information has been released at this time.
The first season aired from July to September 2013.
"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.
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.
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.
