HUGE PLOT SPOILER FOR FINAL STROKE:
Reblog from fencer-x on Tumblr:
The movie opens very cutely with Haru’s friends recording videos about him, mostly about how they met him and what impact he’s had on their lives. Even Rin is dragged over by Iwatobi and asked to put in a few words too. Given that Makoto is still wearing his Iwatobi uniform, I’m guessing this is before they graduate.
Cut next to Haru with that old familiar mantra: “When you're ten, they call you a prodigy. When you're fifteen, they call you a genius. But once you hit twenty, you're just a normal person.”
Yup: Once you hit 20, you’re just a normal person. Nanase Haruka is on the cusp of his 20th year, and he can hear his time to reach his dream ticking down.
We get a brief flashba…

New figures of Akane Tsunemori and Nobuchika Ginoza from Psycho-Pass are on the way. Darn, but they hurt my wallet. Even so, I'm glad to have splurged before prices rise again. I also got a few minor pieces of minor merch like an acrylic standee of my Doukyuusei boys and a large postcard/magnet of Saya/Hagi from Blood+. I have more on my Most Wanted list, but the wallet has to cool down before I do anything more. Still, doing this for myself makes me smile when the world-at-large is so confused, angry and sad.

Peace of mind and healing wishes to everyone out there. I think things will get worse before they get better, but they will get better. And if, in some small way, this blog can distract you from your worries, I am glad.
I only just learned that Takemoto-sama was also a victim of the arson attack. He was the director of Starting Days, which happens to be my very favorite film of the franchise because of its sweet simplicity of story and character, as well as the enormous amount of backstory and insight it provided into the dynamic between Makoto, Haru, Asahi and Ikuya.
And now a wound I thought closed is re-opened just a little. Y'know, I used to work with families who would share with me such deeply moving stories about their lives and, as a professional, I had to maintain a certain caring detachment in order to help them make rational decisions and assist with their healing. Yet, as I sit here typing this, I know that I carry within me all of those storie…
This is a date meaningful to most citizens of the U.S. And while
I did not lose any loved ones in that tragedy, I watched it as it
unfolded on television at my workplace, less than 25 miles away. My
building was on lock down, several colleagues were worried about
family members (one of whom did lose her brother) and the
atmosphere was solemn.
As I recall...The weather was clear and sunny when I heard someone say, rather loudly, "the tower's been hit by a plane" or something similar. I thought it was a hoax, but as we switched on the radio, our fears were confirmed. Hearing the unfolding crisis wasn't enough for me, so I went up to the library where there was a small television in a back office. As I stood with a colleague, we saw the secon…
...is both joyful and painful. It's wonderful to see new footage
of characters that have grown dear, like old friends who have been
away but have returned to visit for awhile. But as I watched, I
couldn't help but remember that, somewhere in Japan, there are
grieving families whose pain is unimaginable and being softhearted,
I began to cry.
I watched these characters sharing their dreams knowing that many dreams IRL have been lost to senseless violence. And I see in these characters the talent of their creator, Futoshi Nishiya, who will never see his dream played to an audience, as I'm sure he anticipated with excitement, as does everyone who is a part of the Kyoani and Animation Do families.
I, along with millions of others, hope that Kyo…
Well, August has arrived and the Atlantic is finally warm enough (for me) to actually swim instead of wade. Took my 11 y.o. grandson and he loved it, dragging me along into his fun. I always forget how powerful even small waves are but we had a blast. I admit it made me think of Ep 6 of Season One when the guys had their summer training camp. Dear Bezus, they were crazy to do that! And it made me realize how skilled and strong they really are as athletes because swimming in a pool is one thing; swimming in the ocean? No comparison. And in a storm? No wonder Rei freaked out but Makoto didn't think twice, except he got spooked. And no wonder. The ocean is a monster on a sunny day, let alone when whipped up in a frenzy at night. Even experien…
I have no words except to provide validation of the news with a visual of the page I saw if anyone wishes to see for themselves the awful truth:
In checking the Kyoani website today, I noticed that the Violet
Evergarden movie is still listed as slated for release in January
2020, but the Free! project is removed. What this likely means is
that the 2020 Free! project won't emerge until 2021 or later. I
can't imagine it not being produced at all, but I'll feel better
when there's confirmation of its continued existence. There is hope
for it insofar that Kyoani is moving forward in any way, although
an animation studio's financial health overall is always in
question, especially if there are lawsuits. The Japanese aren't as
litigious as Americans, but this horrible crime is bound to take a
toll on them.
It's terrible to think this way, but big studios have gone under for less and whil…
Since "Contributions" doesn't reflect the messages on the
Community Feed page, I'm leaving a message here to let those who
don't check that page that Crunchyroll is collecting messages and
images to be be delivered to the studio and the families of the
victims. If you wish to add your sentiments, as well as to find
other ways in which to help, visit the Crunchyroll site at

Time was short so, as an admin for this wiki, I took the liberty of sending a simple condolence message on our behalf and attaching a copy of the top half of our current main page which pays respects to the victims, their families and to the studio. I trust this…
(I was originally going to post this on a discussion thread, but it ended up being very irrelevant and personal so I'm posting it separately.)
Hello everyone! I hope you've all been doing well.
I've been meaning to write this for a long time, but have never gotten the opportunity until now.
I'd like to apologise. You all have been working so hard to develop the wiki's interface, categories and navigation and discussing a lot of points on those matters, while I have been close to invisible when it was all happening. I've been sort of shy in voicing my opinion about the cat tree especially because it's something I've never heard of before, and I didn't want to say anything without proper knowledge on the subject (and honestly I didn't notice an…
Ok so following the discussion from the cat tree thread, we'll use this post to discuss where we think the characters should fall within the following categories:
- Main (central to the story)
- Supporting (prominent members of the cast but typically not the focus of the story)
- Minor (all other characters, very little overall impact on the story)
As agreed, we'll all state who we think belongs in the category for main, and also probably specify who we think belongs in supporting but everyone else we think is minor probably doesn't need to be listed specifically by name since there's so many. I foresee the most contentious ones to be Sosuke, Hiyori, Momo, Nitori, Gou, Natsuya and Nao as there's probably reasonable justification for both main and su…
SUMMARY: (I might do this more often because I tend to run my mouth hahahahah)
- Should we remove video files that no longer exist from pages that contain them?
- How does sourcing media from unofficial sources work?
- Should 'Lantis' have a page on the wiki as a company associated with Free?
Hi everyone it's me again with another question,
I was just looking at the Lantis youtube channel and browsing for new songs to listen to, though I eventually ended up listening to OLDCODEX. (btw side question, should Lantis have a page on our wiki too?). Then I remembered that Lantis posts a lot or previews/PV of free songs since the songs are under their label and wondered if I should add those videos to the wiki. Turns out I was already beaten to it like 6 yea…
while I've been adding old and new images to character image galleries I realised that while the episode images are nicely segregated by episode the other official images are kind of messy because all the images are thrown in together regardless of which series they came from (ie. season 1, 2, 3, the movies, etc.). I was just wondering if you guys thought it would be a good idea to split the official images section up into series subsections like the episode images?
I'm happy to do all that myself since I still have a lot of promo images to upload too so I can do the re-arranging when I upload, I just wanted to know if you guys thought it would be necessary or not for making things cleaner/more organised before I actually changed a…
I know that at this moment we are currently working on a lot of
housecleaning here on the wiki, but I just wanted to bring this
question up because I'd like to somehow implement a similar
feature/code on another wiki I'm currently editing. Previously, I
was inserting hexadecimal/6-digit colour codes into various pages
to manually color text,infoboxes,etc. but it was very tedious to
do. That's when I remembered that the Free!Wiki had a color code
system that worked by writing a specific character's name into the
What I'd specifically like to know is how writing "CharacterColor" - followed by the character's name - gives the text the matching color of said character.…
While we're all fairly active at the moment and discussing how best to manage the wiki I thought it might be wise for me to make a post detailing which translators/scanners/editors in the Free! fandom have given us permission to use their work here on the wiki. Using translations/images without permission from the provider is generally considered quite rude, and can make the wiki look bad in the eyes of the Free! community. As such, if you're going to upload images (magazine scans, booklet covers, etc.) or translations (lyrics, interviews, trivia, etc.) that you yourself did not screencap/translate please ask the providers permission first.
I've already been given the ok by certain content providers on Tumblr (who I'll list here at…
Bloogging, huh? I basically don't. Not like this anyway, but I want to participate in all aspects of the wiki, so I'm here. I do enjoy blogging on Tumblr, however, where images and words are easily combined and you can be creative with such. That's my style. This? Not so much. That's it for now and likely for good. Take care. Angelle
This is more so addressed to the admins, but I was wondering if
I could be granted rollback rights on the wiki. There have been a
few spams and cases of vandalism on the wiki (that I know of) over
the past month and I tried my best to return the pages to their
original state but I'm afraid that I might have accidentally
deleted information. It's not necessary to do, but it would be a
lot easier to fix the changes made by vandalism offenders if I
could have access to this .
While I'm at it, I would like to ask if the same could be done for Yuji Otsutsuki since this was their idea in the first place and well, the more the merrier :)
I'd just like to wish all of you a very happy new year filled with many exciting opportunites and experiences. Stay safe, stay healthy and enjoy the crazy year ahead of us! I look forward to working with you all once again in 2019 :D
Just a quick heads up!
The Free! Wikia Discord is finally up and running! Just dropping the link here.
This isn't really a big issue, but I've been editing a lot of music on the wikia and whenever I need to refer to the seiyuus who sang them, I have trouble finding out which version of their name I should use.
I know that we already have articles created for some of the Seiyuus, but the titles for each article vary because of their name. What I mean by this is that some articles have the Seiyuu's first name first (e.g. Haruka Nanase) while others have their last name first (e.g. Nanase Haruka). So I guess the question is, should the first or last name go first?
From my knowledge, these are all the currently existing Seiyuu articles (As of 30/11/2018):
Like I said before, it's not a really pressing matter, but it would be nice to have that consis…
Hi everyone, Tari here!
I have been adding and editing a lot of the Japanese songs and titles within the Free Wikia and I have been wondering about the use of Japanese particles, more specifically, what romanized (romaji) form of each particle that should be used. Basically what I'm trying to say is; I don't know how to change particles from Kanji to Romaji. There are all different versions across the wiki, so I don't know what's correct. I've made assumptions before, but I feel like I should check with everyone just to make sure. Here are the three I am confused with: (Click read more to view Kanji)
- The character itself is 'ha'
- In a sentence, is pronouced 'wa'
- Would it be written as 'ha' or
- e.g.) "Seikai ha itsumo..." / "Seikai wa itsumo..."
- Would it be written as 'ha' or 'wa'?
- The ch…

Due to excessive vandalism brought about by the new anime season certain pages have been locked for the foreseeable future (Hiyori Tono) and any users who vandalise pages from now on will be banned with no prior warning. Bans will last two weeks minimum, and will be renewed if the users continues to vandalise once the ban has been lifted. If you have any concerns over what could be considered vandalism or spam please contact me or another admin before making an edit. Thank you, Fox
Hey There! Here in this blogpost you can ask me questions and such and I will answer them the best I can.
