The new Free! -Take Your Marks- Movie will be officially out in theaters in Japan on October 28th, 2017! The movie will consist of four “episodes” combined into the movie, and the titles of each episode are as follows:

Episode 1: The Choice of Destiny
Episode 2: Cooling Down at a Secret Hot Springs
Episode 3: The Butterfly of Promises
Episode 4: The Departure of Eternal Blue

A short summary of the movie is as follows:

It’s the month of March, and the season for Haruka’s graduation has arrived. This story will follow the next starting block for the boys in the beginning of Spring. As Haruka and the others go forward to their futures, what happens next…?


Mamoru Hosoda’s The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (時をかける少女) was first released on July 15, 2006.

This movie was released to a small number of theaters in Japan, taking in approximately 300 million yen (US$3 million). The film wasn’t advertised as frequently as other animation features from 2006 (such as “Tales from Earthsea”), but word of mouth and glowing reviews generated interest. At Theatre Shinjuku for days in a row, film-goers would fill the theater, some even standing to watch the film. Following this, distribution company Kadokawa Herald Pictures took unprecedented measures to increase the number of theaters showing the film across Japan, and sent the film to several international festivals.
