Who's excited for the special episode? :iconsparkleeyeyuiplz:

I was disappointed that we didn't get to see any Fr!Fr! shorts this time... but I didn't know there was gonna be an entire extra episode, till the preview popped up and man, have I watched it countless times. Just six days more till I get my next hit of these gorgeous swimming guys!! :iconotakuingplz:

The original title for this was going to be Free! Fanservice but, you know...

Update:

Since some people asked for it, here's the link to the subbed version of the Special Episode trailer.

Omg omg the whole time watching the episode I was like Anime Emoji (Blush Oh yay dance) [V6] . I can't believe there won't be anymore.... Cry forever 
But as long as we have gorgeous nosebleed inducing fan art like yours, I believe there's hope for us! :dummy:

I know right! My sentiments exactly. Though I guess we non-Japanese speaking people will have to wait for the DVD/Blu-ray release to be subbed before we get to enjoy the movie... sigh~ I also wonder if they'll include Rei, or for that matter Nagisa, in the movie because they only meet Rei in high school and we know that Nagisa went to a different middle school. But there're gonna be several new characters, that's for sure and the fandom's really excited about it!

Lol that's a given, but what are spoilers for then? ;) :P 
What?! No Rei or Nagisa... that's crazy!! I buy into your reasoning but still, wihtout theses two babies it won't feel the same :( Maybe they'll make cameos, like Rei running past Haru on the street (like he runs in the first season) or Nagisa showing up to cheer for them in the tournaments.
Ooh, new characters! Guess I can look forward to some extensive shouta action! XD

Thank you!!

Yesh the episode was the best thing ever, I had tears in my eyes when they were saying goodbye a the end coz it seemed like they were saying farewell to the fans.... LOL Haru is like 'I have no regrets whatsoever!' and Rin throwing the water gun at him was friggin' hilarious!rofl  I had a hard time controlling my chuckles coz I was watching it in the middle of the night! The Nagibomb at the end though! It drove the fandom crazy, did he spill about MakoHaru?!?! I'm inclined to think he didn't. Nagisa is playful but he isn't cheap like that.

It's bundled with vol.7 DVD?Blu-ray of Free!ES, coming out on March 18... might take a few days to get subbed. People are usually prompt to upload OVAs of popular animes, so maybe we won't have to wait all that long.

The extra episode isn't out yet, you'll have to wait till March 18 when it's out with vol. 7 of DVD/Blu-ray. But I hope some kind soul on the internet will share it with us. You can watch the trailer though. I've updated my description with the link to it. :)
