Yes, as long as there is a mobile game to go with it where you can collect cards of the Frees in cute outfits.

They should make an entire season dedicated niche sexual fetishes. One episode has literal Haru x Water sex, another has Nagisa turn into a girl, another has Makoto abuse...

All their IP's have had some sort of idol/musical, right? KnK had that episode, Free has the ending, and Euphonium is pretty obvious. Not sure about Tamako.

Not sure about Tamako.
The baton club did a routine, so it's a bit more dancing than musical, and Tamako's dad had a band when he was in high school if that counts.

I hope not. They only gave K-On! two seasons and a movie. Free! just got that and their movie is coming soon. Granted, it's a prequel movie but it still counts.

After that, I'm not sure what they could pull out of their ass. Season 3 will never happen and since when does Kyoani push out two movies for the same show?

It may be thriving right now for the movie, but I can't see Free staying alive for another year. Even the storyline has been fairly tied up by the end of S2.

TechHater

And K-On! isn't their IP, so it makes sense that they don't want to do more of it.

Yeah, Free is their most successful IP so I don't see what's so improbable about two movies. KnK got two even though it sold like shit compared to Free and no one gives a fuck about it. Granted, one of those movies is a recap but then the coming Free movie is an adaptation of a prequel novel, and one where half of the main characters are barely relevant or don't appear at all. I don't think a sequel movie a la the Keion or Love Live movies is out of the question.

In any case, animes getting more than one movie (even one as popular as Free) are incredibly unheard of. I don't see Kyoani breaking that tradition and doing more after this movie.

You seem to have missed KyoAni making two movies for Kyoukai no Kanata.
And there's plenty more anime with two movies out there.

It wouldn't be weird for them to make a sequel movie, giving how hard they are squeezing the series up to the last yen.
But don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I want that. A sequel would probably fuck everything even more with some cheap DRAMA since there's not much left to deal with (Sosuke's shoulder/career and maybe how Haru is copping with pro swimming).

Utsumi currently MIA
What? She didn't participated in the AniDo event, but she never went public so that was expected.
And you can't really say it's weird for her not to be directing the movie, since she's a rookie director. If anything, it's weird she got to direct both seasons of Free.

While I love the series with all my heart, I had said my goodbyes when ES ended, so if nothing else were produced, I would be satisfied.

... Is what I told myself before the movie was announced. But at this point, if High Speed is the only movie to come out, I'd be a little pissed, since it's a prequel that won't even feature half the cast. It's kind of like "Hey, you like anyone besides Haru or Makoto?? Well FUCK YOU."

They gave the K-On! move to the then-rookie Yamada, so it makes sense that they give the movie to Utsumi. It's her show after all.

Priority movie for priority pandered ship that features the most popular characters. Still, even I wished they would've did something where more characters realistically fit in. High Speed is almost entirely Haru-centric.

I won't be mad though because I liked High Speed and I'm interested in a Free that isn't directed by the shitty amateur fujo.

Even if there is another movie after, whatever. I'm not interested in shitty drama 3.0.

Of course I can. It's because of this that I can say this firmly and truthfully. Both seasons were pretty awful and I only watched for my favorites. Makoto and Rei are living great lives by the end of S2, I have nothing to see.

Well except Sousuke, but they don't give a shit about him so I gave up ;_;

@Stupidasole
Alright. Believe that Rin isn't atleast half the cancer that killed Free. I'm fine with that.

But I already have. About a year ago when I realized nobody on the staff ever gave a shit about Sousuke. But in my heart, he's doing fine so who cares.

Boy_vs_Girl

@Methshot
Yeah, that's the thing. I think it will be interesting to see High Speed animated but thinking that it will be the last thing to come out of the series kinda sucks. Rin is in Australia, Nagisa is barely relevant and Rei doesn't even exist in the LN. Sousuke is there but he doesn't have a big role either. So yeah, if your favorite is someone besides Haru or Makoto and you want to see more of them, you're screwed. It's especially annoying when KyoAni is promoting those High Speed guys so hard when I doubt most people give a shit about them.
