AU where Laurent & Auguste are an infamous Art Thief duo and Damen is the Agent who’s leading the FBI team assigned to catch them holy shit this got really long pls bear with me

  • Nikandros is Damen’s second in command, Pallas is the guy with the street cred who leads most undercover missions, Erasmus handles their IT/tech stuff (and also internal affairs because everyone loves him) and Makedon is their weapons expert
  • Jord leads a mercenary squad (selected members: Orlant, Lazar, Aimeric) that Laurent & Auguste sometimes hire when they need extra muscle or protection
  • Nicaise is Laurent & Auguste’s master forger of choice, aside from providing them with check-proof fake identities and documents they also bring their goods to him to have them checked over
  • Laurent sometimes brings Nicaise forgeries just to set him off. Nicaise thinks it’s because Laurent doesn’t trust him/wants to test him but really Laurent just thinks it’s cute that Nicaise gets personally offended by bad forgeries (that aren’t his own, mind you)
  • one time Damen’s team gets an anonymous tip about where their next coup is about to happen - just the painting never gets stolen??? they just don’t steal it??
  • so Damen thinks that either the tip was wrong OR they have a mole in the team
    • Spoiler: it’s neither
  • Laurent & Auguste arrived at the scene and upon seing the painting in person Laurent flat out refused to steal it
    • “It’s even uglier in person, no Auguste, this isn’t even ART. This is an abomination. We never should have taken the job from this Guion guy, the abhorent colour of his suit should have been a warning.”

Haruka's Manager Name Medley

[Free! ES Radio CD 1 Summary by damenin]:

there’s another “manager name medley” where they read nicknames of the ones who send e-mails full of Free! love. Usually the nicknames are about the guest seiyuu and their characters. This time the nicknames are for Haru and Nobunaga-these have never been read in the actual web radio. Hirarin and Tsubasa read the nicknames and Nobunaga gives a reply. Here are the names read:
 
“I want to be Haru-chan’s swimsuit” (Haru:”Be tight on me, okay?”); “I want to be the fridge in Haru-chan’s house” (Haru:”Is it all right even if it smells fishy?”); “I want to be the dolphin figure from Haru-chan’s house” (Haru:“Let’s get in the bath together”); “I want to make Haru-chan my adopted child”(Haru:”Build a pool in the house!”); “I want Haru-chan’s underwear or swimsuit”(Nobunaga: “No way!”); “I want to be Nobunaga’s owner” (Nobunaga:“Hmphf!”).

They tease him again asking if he’d be okay with Tatsu being his owner. And they say Tatsu’s the only one. Tsubasa says it’s like a cat being prickly when you call it (the “hmph”)

Miyano Mamoru & Hosoya Yoshimasa fist bump
Miyano Mamoru, Shimazaki Nobunaga
Miyano Mamoru & Hosoya Yoshimasa fist bump

I thought I should include and translate the whole part because it’s so cute. And it seems Mamo imitating Hosoyan is pretty popular too. Actually I’d planned to translate it from the start but somehow didn’t until now. They talk about how Mamo and Hosoyan did a fist bump at a Free! recording and Mamo imitates Hosoyan.

Miyano Mamoru: - I really love working with Hosoya-san. He’s amusing, and I pester him a lot.

Shimazaki Nobunaga: - Yes, you do that often! I’d also like to hear about that!

Miyano Mamoru: - But somehow, you know, Sousuke and Rin often bump their fists together in the anime, don’t they? I often get asked about that in interviews too. They ask if I have that kind of experience. And I say that really, that’s something you’d admire. Those two do it naturally, don’t they?

Shimazaki Nobunaga: - They do!

Miyano Mamoru: - Haha! And I think that’s so cool!

Shimazaki Nobunaga: - But I know about it. I saw Miyano-san and Hosoya-san, sometime at the recording, when revising or something, you bumped your fists!

Miyano Mamoru: - Haha. Yeah, I don’t know when it was but I thought that’s nice and went up to Hosoya-san and raised my fist. And then Hosoya-san bumped his fist on mine nervously, like, softly.

Shimazaki Nobunaga: - That’s cute!

Miyano Mamoru: - He did that softly, and what do you think he said? “Ah…it’s warm!” - that’s what he said. Haha!

Shimazaki Nobunaga: - And then I heard from Hosoya-san that he got to know your temperature before starting the recording.

Miyano Mamoru: - Right, right. Something like it’s cold until starting but warm after finishing the recording. It’s like “that’s it?”. But I think that somehow it’s true that you can feel something that can’t be transmitted through words. We started doing that naturally every week after that and when we do it, I feel more hyped up. And I think the distance between us shortened with that.

Shimazaki Nobunaga: - That’s really wonderful. You’re synchronized as your characters too. And like that, the best team was taking form both in the anime and among the cast. That’s Team Samezuka! I’m glad I could hear this! And I really wanted to hear your talk with Hosoya-san…

Miyano Mamoru: - “Um…Miyano-san’s hand…is warm, isn’t it?”
And I was like: that’s your impression on it? "No,no…I think, Um…um,it’s important, you know… Um…um, because I’m not good at it…you know, um, I’m not good with people…So things like temperature…It’s…like a way to communicate..and…it’s important for me.” 
That’s what he was saying.

Shimazaki Nobunaga: - You really sounded like him! 

Miyano Mamoru: - Hahaha!

Shimazaki Nobunaga: - Totally sounded like him! What you were saying, the way of talking and the style, you know, everything was alike so you can only say it sounded like him. Awesome. But you two often have preparatory meetings, don’t you?
So this is how the recording studio is getting warmed up. Then, let’s read the next mail…

Rei and Nagisa are like a couple?
Shimazaki Nobunaga (Haruka), Yonaga Tsubasa (Nagisa), Hirakawa Daisuke (Rei)
Rei and Nagisa are like a couple?

[Free! ES Radio CD 1 Summary by damenin]:

“- someone sends an e-mail about Free! ES 03 where Nagisa stops Rei from leaving at Haru’s house and the sender says she was excited because it only looked to her as a girlfriend telling her boyfriend in a sweet atmosphere “No, I don’t wanna break up!”. Nobunaga reads that in a falsetto voice and Hirarin makes him say it again. He does and is given the OK and Wing and Hirarin say it was cute. 
Tsubasa says he did think he looks like a girlfriend when he watched the anime on TV but at the recording he didn’t think anything because he was acting Nagisa and tried to express his feelings. He saw it after and thought they do look like a couple and Nagi’s even grabing his sleeve.
And Nobunaga concludes it saying they got close enough so they naturally look like a couple. [Iwachan ES Radio CD 1 ~03:20]”

"Are you his girlfriend?!"
Shimazaki Nobunaga (Haruka), Yonaga Tsubasa (Nagisa), Hirakawa Daisuke (Rei)
"Are you his girlfriend?!"

Wing and Hirarin REALLY like teasing Zakki about Tattsun….

[Free! ES Radio CD 1 Summary by damenin]:

“Nobunaga says he talked on the phone Tatsu right before the recording and the two laugh (Hirarin: “are you his girlfriend?”= can also be translated as “is he your girlfriend?” because there’s no pronoun/subject). Zakki says he wanted to talk to him about something, and Zakki continues saying that usually the day after they go drinking after a recording (or something like that) they talk on the phone or through messages. And the two conclude he’s like his girlfriend and make fun of him. And they say they should leave and Nobunaga should call Tatsu and put him on speaker and talk.

They say Tatsu brought crab to the recording studio as a souvenir from Hokkaido where he went for work. And he dressed it really fast. And Hirarin says he had to leave early because he had another job and Tatsu asked him to wait and fed him a bite. Hirarin says here “Tacchu, you’re wonderful”.

Tsubasa says that when Mamo (voicing Rin) comes, Tatsu becomes more sadistic. He also says that at the recording, the ones being teased are Tsubasa and Nobunaga. And lately Hosoyan voicing Sousuke) was added to that group and Mamo’s silliness increased even more. They say the recording has a nice warm and friendly atmosphere. And that seiyuus who act episodic characters say Nobunaga and Tatsu get along well when they see them.

Tsubasa and Hirarin tease Nobunaga again and ask him if he wants to call Tatsu or if he wants a photo of him there.”

About Nagisa's cute head nuzzle

Audio excerpt from Free! Eternal Summer Radio CD - Iwatobi Channel ES Vol. 1 / Track 03 - Style One

Summary by damenin (thank you!):

“the next mail read is a question to Hirarin. The sender asks what he thinks about Nagisa’s head nuzzle. Hirarin says he thinks it’s cute but wonders until what age he can get away with doing it. Tsubasa says Nagi seems to keep doing that forever.
They talk about how he’d come from above so it’d probably hurt if he nuzzled his head on your shoulder. Hirarin says he’s like a cat when he does it and he’s cute. Nobunaga says it’s something that Haru lets Nagi do that and it shows he accepts him." [Iwachan ES Radio CD 1 ~05:30]

(I suggest you to read/listen to the other one posted by digivice which is basically Rei and Nagisa’s seiyuus referring to them as a couple!)
