Final Stroke Part 1 releases 17 September 2021.Most recent trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnXcfX04GOsPrevious Thread: >>3616141
There will be a new FS trailer next week. Hopefully it's more illuminating than the last one, given the movie is a month away.
>>3622868Trailer release is postponed due to OLDCODEX going into sudden hiatus and cancelling the release of the theme song for the movie due to the scandal Makoto's VA is currently embroiled in. There will be a different unspecified announcement on the 20th instead. JP sphere is frustrated and worried about how this will impact KyoAni and the movie.This movie's whole production cycle has been incredibly cursed.

>>3624207The announcement was some cafe shit and confirmation that Tattsun will be voicing Makoto to the end, despite him retreating from the spotlight.
>>3624207>Trailer release is postponed due to OLDCODEX going into sudden hiatus and cancelling the release of the theme song for the movie due to the scandal Makoto's VA is currently embroiled in.An affair, oof.>This movie's whole production cycle has been incredibly cursed.Fire that destroyed the studio, international pandemic, it's previous installment not being the best received and now one of the MC's VA has an affair.Cursed is an understatement.
>>3626382>destroyed the studio,And killed and injured dozens of staff members. There was some worry among JP fans that Makoto wouldn't be voiced by Tattsun anymore but KA came out and quashed that rumour last week. There's still some concern that they might minimize Makoto's screen time due to not wanting to be associated with the scandal, but we'll have to wait and see.
>>3626424>And killed and injured dozens of staff members. I mean, I'd still class it as destroying the studio. It isn't just the buildings and equipment that make up a studio.>There was some worry among JP fans that Makoto wouldn't be voiced by Tattsun anymore but KA came out and quashed that rumour last week.I mean he apparently attempted suicide and is on a very long break because of it. So unless Suzuki has recorded his lines for part 2...I mean, I hope the guy's ok and his recovery comes before his work.>There's still some concern that they might minimize Makoto's screen time due to not wanting to be associated with the scandal, but we'll have to wait and see.They're already in it deep by saying Suzuki is not being replaced, may as well double down at this point. I hope they don't cut him out as that just opens the door for the season 3 weak points.

>>3628628>big dorky qt
I never watched this anime, but i remember fapping a lot to a gif of this boy stretching his legs when i was younger. Anyone have it?
>>3633719Nah, i remember him looking more like a shota, but this is hot too
Since it's now the 16th in Japan, just 1 more day till release.I will be extremely impressed or extremely disappointed.
Is this the last ever Free! related thing?
>>3622330Oh I guess it comes out today huh?
>>3635096It's a two part movie and the second half comes out in 2022, but yes, this is End of Free.>>3635097Yes. Japanese fandom has been losing its minds. There's reportedly tons of shipbait for everyone and both fluff and melodrama out the ass.
Have read the spoilers from the movie? What did you think? I'm surprised by the "importance" of Albert/Haru
>>3635400I've seen the spoilers and am excited. Not surprised Albert's important since that was one of the few things they bothered to establish in DF.
>>3635400>>3635449Any pointers as to where I should look for spoilers?
>>3637803I've been reading Japanese twitter but there's probably stuff floating around in English.
>>3637835Tried that but didn't find anything annoyingly. Any key words?
>>3637848Mostly looked up character names, which will be a crapshoot now with all the new promo art that's been released this week. Check artists' twitters. Is there anything in particular you're looking for?
>>3637849The entire storyline
>>3637870Found an eng summary: https://twitter.com/aitaikimochi/status/1438714306216878084Ignore the part towards the end about possession, she apparently can't understand symbolism.
