Translated several art panels from the High☆Speed Free! Starting Days Creator’s Message Book, where staff who worked on the movie drew their own images to thank the fans for supporting the movie. Enjoy~
Tomorrow’s the Big Day™ we’ve all been waiting for so here I am, writing some of my most significant VLD
s2 predictions, theories, hopes, questions etc. so that after I
bingewatch the whole season in a few hours while lying in my bed and
eating snacks I’ll feel proud cuz some of those happened and/or embarassed
cuz those didn’t happen
Anyway, here I go:
Shiro won’t die, that’s for sure (at least not in season 2)
Galra!Keith happens? Maybe?? Or there are more hints for it, I’m callin it
If galra!Keith really happens, I doubt Keith’s appearance will change tho (unless there’s like a really good reason for it but it’s unlikely)
it’d be cool tho cuz there’d be drama
eventually part-galran/part-altean Keith happens
but I know Lotor is going to be part-galran/part-altean so I’m not sure they’d do the same plot twist twice
it’d be the best explanation of all the not-fully-human!Keith hints in season 1 tho
Where do Keith and Shiro know each other from?
Why’s Keith an orphan??? how did his life even look like before? was he in the foster care? did he know his parent(s)?
Also, what’s the deal with his dagger? did Keith get it from his parent? Is it galran??
Also, are both of his parents actually dead? or are they just like, somewhere in space?
more retrospections from the garrison and from Shiro’s times as a gladiator/in a prison
something about Lance’s family
sth about Hunk?? we know pretty much nothing about Hunk’s backstory wtf mate
beach episode?? (ya know Keith and Lance are swimming, Hunk’s cooking sth, full chill on the beach)
Klance moments pls
(I’d like to write “Klance is canon” but that’s probably asking for too much) (would be nice though)
them being good friends and space ranger partners that they are and cooperating together
What does the quintessence actually do and what is it?
does it heal and speed up regeneration?
does it somehow expand the general capacity of the body?
what’s “altean magic”? How does it work, what does it look like? what is it
Someone is captured (at first I thought it’ll be Shiro but after the s2 trailer I’m really concerned about the blue boy)
who’s actually Thace??? like what’s his deal
he’s probably in some kinda resistance tho, and tries to sabotage the galra empire
we find out sth about Matt and Sam Holt’s whereabouts
former paladins’ backstories
Was Alfor the yellow paladin?
What did Zarkon use to be like? was he like, fully good??
If so, why did he change? what are his motives now?
The new galran ally was probably some kinda galra soldier but ran off
What’s going on on the Earth?
How’s is Mrs. Holt holding? I mean dude, she’s pretty much lost her entire family (assuming that she already knows about Pidge’s disappearance)
What’s going on at the garrison rn?
Zarkon keeps finding Voltron because of Shiro’s galran arm
[…] Keith’s galran heritage/biology
[…] his connection to Black Lion
[…] because the new galran ally is actually a spy (I doubt it tho but who knows?)
did I mention Klance moments?
we meet Lotor, maybe? if it’s not too early for this
ponytail Keith?? (damn what a selfishness we’ve already gotten ponytail Coran and we still crave more)
some LGBT representation?
and many, many more minor things (there are just…. so many good things that could happen wow)
So yup, that’s it and I’m really hyped! feel free to add something if you wanna
Makoto’s classmate. They were in the same class during their third year in elementary school. Soccer club.
Director’s comment: Though Haruka got a very bad impression of him at the beginning of the movie, I think he’s actually a good guy. In any case he’s one of Makoto’s friends.
Yeah? Remember him?
impression. Yeah we can definitely tell X’D
I’m remembering what happened with our best friend Kisumi here…
An article from some time ago:
Kisumi who was in the same class as Haruka and Makoto in middle school. Fed Haruka side dish from his bentou, put his arm around Makoto, stuck his tongue out at Haruka and got between the two of them. Makoto might not have minded but Haruka remembers it even now, and directed an unfriendly attitude towards Kisumi whom they met for a first time in a long time.
Red solo cups are dapper as fuck. Also, tiny demon Dipper transporting ice for his merciful overlord (one cube at a time because he’s like the size of an air freshener.) All geometric shapes pictured are of legal age, by which I mean they are in fact ageless.

Reigisa Mook: A Butterfly in a Distant Planet Clip
Free! Eternal Summer Reigisa Mook
Free! Eternal Summer Reigisa Mook
The Free! Eternal Summer Illustration Works comes with drama CD tracks for the Sourin, Reigisa, and Momotori Mooks. This is an excerpt from the Reigisa Mook! Enjoy~ (See here for all Free! Mook translations)
Nagisa: Rei-chan, I know where the final component lies…here, right? Inside my chest.
Rei: Nagisa-kun, so you noticed that you are an android…
Nagisa: Yes, Rei-chan is the one who created me, right? This body, my memories, everything.
Rei: Yes…that is correct. I made you.
Rei: One year ago, there was an accident that caused me to make an emergency landing using this spaceship. I was left all alone. I started on repairs for the spaceship immediately but was unable to make any progress. Since there was no one around, and I was the sole survivor on this lonesome planet, I started losing my mind. It was at this time that I thought it would be nice to have a companion to be here with me as well…
Rei: So then to cure my loneliness, I decided to create an android of Nagisa and implant all the memories of the time I spent with him on Earth.
Nagisa: So the memories we recalled just now were all inputted by you, Rei-chan?
Rei: That is right.
Nagisa: So then what is the real me doing now?
Rei: The real Nagisa-kun is probably doing very well back at home on Earth. Nagisa-kun was very bright and excelled greatly in space travel and eventually became the top of his rank. However, for some reason instead of him being appointed, I was sent on this mission to space instead. Even though I was the one who cheered Nagisa-kun on the whole time and took on studying space because of him, it is ironic that I was the one chosen for this mission.
Nagisa: Then you must return home now! The real me is waiting for you back down on Earth!
Rei: But… if I do that then there might be a chance that you will forget about me.
Nagisa: I would never forget you, Rei-chan!
Rei: But how would an android like you know that?
Nagisa: Of course I would know! After all, I’m also Nagisa, and I would never forget about Rei-chan ever!
Nagisa: That’s why you gotta hurry! You can use the part in my chest when you first created me, and once you do so the spaceship will move again! Use the part!
Rei: I can’t do that. If I take it out of you, you will stop working.
Nagisa: It’s fine! You can just put in another part when you return back to the Earth, and I’ll move again.
Rei: But that isn’t the problem. I can’t! If I remove the part from you, all your memories will be reset, which means that all the memories you have of what we have gone through in space will be erased.
Nagisa: It’s all right, if it means that you will have a chance to return to Earth.
Nagisa: Hurry and go home to the me on Earth. Just being able to be with Rei-chan in itself was really fun!
Nagisa: I’m doing this because the real me is probably waiting for Rei-chan and worrying about you. So please understand, okay?
Rei: No, you can’t…I—
Nagisa: Thank you, Rei-chan.
Rei: A dream…
Nagisa: Oh? Rei-chan’s awake? That’s pretty rare of you, falling asleep like that…
Nagisa: What’s wrong, Rei-chan?
Rei: I’M JUST… SO GLAD YOU’RE ALL RIGHT. *hugs him*

No, it’s important…I’m bad” Nobunaga: It’s similar Mamo: “I’m not really good with people… your body temperature… that might be a conversation starter… so for me that’s important.“ He said that Nobunaga: It sounds like him!

I wonder how they see it that we are the “hunter” and you guys are the “hunted” Hosoya: That’s right Nobunaga: Stop imitating Hosoya san! Others: LOL Nobunaga: Miyano san, because you did a really good job right there Mamo: The listeners would think that there are two Hosoya san Hosoya: LOLIt’s like bunshin no jutsu Mamo: Maybe it is bunshin no jutsu just now
