MakoHaru may be the most popular pairing but it's not the only thing carrying this franchise. The fact that it's a shota movie doesn't help since fujos care more about the teenage versions.

If they didn't want to do a sequel they should have made a Free movie à la the Keion movie - Frees going on a trip to some foreign country together with funny shenanigans plus a little drama thrown in for the fujos. A shota movie where most of the characters from the show barely appear (if at all) was a terrible idea. It's like they don't want all the easy cash they could have made with that movie.

I'll not give up hope until the anime airs, I think they can survive if they pull off the impossible.

But is the Free movie good as a movie, even if it fails at making money, at least?

People are only sucking her dick now because 'atleast she bothered to multipander!!1' which is bullshit because she had every reason to do so, having entire control over anything written in Free.

Starting Days was closed into a setting where the main characters haven't even met and are separated. They were dumb for minimizing on the mains and capitalizing on the new characters, but they were even dumber for choosing this novel to adapt and just not making a shitty S2 sequel.

I can't judge the movie before seeing it like some people can, but in any case, Free was very good in the first place. Nothing was lost and nothing was gained.

Fujoshit really are fickle. Just a few weeks back they were praising Takemoto for being everything better than that Utsumi lad. Now they want her back so they can get an even shittier sequel movie with their special OTP.

The Utsumi haters aren't fujoshi, they're gay shotacons. Fujoshi love everything about the series, but the gays are the ones who always complain that it was ruined by Utsumi, fujoshi, shipping, Gary Stu Rin, etc. and thought that Takemoto would save it

The people who were trashing Utsumi a few weeks back are not the same people who are trashing the movie now though. Those were just anti-Rinfags who were glad he's not a big part of the movie, and everyone knows Rin is Utsumi's favorite. They kept saying the movie will be a success because it only consists of "best boys". Funny how those best boys apparently weren't enough to make the movie earn much money.

I don't think it works that way when you have friends in high places like Lantis. Lantis could potentially just help fund Kyoani projects indefinitely with the money they make from Love Live, [email protected] and other shit.

Fujoshi are known to be extremely fickle and move on to titles at ridiculous fast rates. They managed to convince Aniplex they had a hit in Durarara and that they should commit to anime's first 3 way split cour only to have that blow up in their face and now they seem to have moved on from High Speed already.

Love Live caters to lonely idol-loving Otaku, which are the majority. They also have popular games. Literally nothing can kill a franchise like Love Live unless they give the girls a hetero romantic interest.

I don't doubt that some part of Free's fanbase has moved on to other things but I'm pretty certain that a movie featuring high school Frees instead of shotas and which didn't alienate everyone who isn't a MakoHarufag would have done a lot better than High Speed.

This is probably the hardest position that Kyoani has ever really been in it's history. As others have mentioned they have Lantis to turn to for now as support much like they've leeched off of Kadokawa in the past but they're going to just have to continue to get used to having flops and under-performers like everyone else now and work through it. If anything I still think they were the victims of far too much early success and constant praises and having a really easy time of it back during the days of working on KEY and Kadokawa hits with pre-established obsessive fans to work from thinking that they could easily go it alone by trying to buy up these half backed single volume LN licenses and make instant hits out of them.

They're also not the gods of moe anymore, somehow Sunrise Studio 8 is with Love Live that continues to hold otaku in thrall. Also the competition for fujoshi has picked up of late and is being won at this point in time by Osomatsu-san. Obviously that won't last because fujoshi and all and there might be an opportunity to win them back some time in the future but like yeah time to get used to being challenged for the first time since they started doing anime on it's own and not just as an in-betweener for Sunrise and Pierrot. Maybe they could try taking a leaf out of Sunrise's book and actually legitimately coming up with an original marketable idea of their own instead of just buying shitty light novel licenses from amateur writers

And MakoHaru fujos. Thank god they still make up half the fanbase or the numbers would be beyond shilling.

Nice argument fujoshit. But I watched it, if only to corroborate how delusional both fujos and kyoanifags are. In 24 episodes the only interesting thing that happend was the interactions between the gravure teacher and the coach. Every thing else was shit. From teenage boys hugging eachother and crying like ten years old girls, to a fucking dumb attempt at sport drama that made no sense. Oh and the water autism.

Thanks god both seasons provided good shows to detoxify myself from this cringefest. But they only made it look even shitter.

Yeah, the High Speed! LN was set in elementary school. Even though they knew better back then, somehow this disaster still happens. Was it arrogance?

He complained about the "new guys", which implies he doesn't read the LN, retoid.

Maybe they were planning to make a new movie with both old and new characters being in one movie later? Kinda like what Marvel is doing with their superheroes.

Whom you'll never see as Kyoani won't want anything to do with a flop character.

Too bad there probably won't be any more Free movies after this flop.

>Free flopping
2015 sure is an entertaining year.

I'm happy the show is kill if that was their plan.
>>
>>134478831
If KyoAni ever does anything Free related again, a character from a flop movie like High Speed will appear for 10 seconds tops, if at all.
>>
>>134478785
That's a shame. They should at least run every day.
>>134478802
I'm still going to watch. Everyone was saying Free! was gay trash, but it really wasn't like that and I actually liked it.

Please stop the bullying. Ikuya is a sensitive soul.

>>134478896
KnK and Tamako didn't sell really that well either and they still made movies. Maybe you have no idea if KyoAni is losing money or if this will stop them from doing more movies? Just a guess I don't know...
>>
>>134478955
This shota killed Free huh.

The only comfort I take in this is that there will be no sequel movie and no resolution for anyone.

Keep dreaming familia

It's time for KyoAniverse team-up movie

>>134478955
But he's harsh enough to kill a franchise and studio. Fucking trash.
