Free! -Timeless Medley-

The winner of the Second Annual Kyoto Animation Awards honorable mention award, “High Speed” served as the foundation for the TV anime series “Free!”

It was the story of young boys enthusiasm and delicate feelings towards swimming, but it is now being reconstructed into two movies, and will appear on screen along with new scenes added in!

Having once stood at a standstill, Haruka spends an irreplaceable time with his friends Makoto, Nagisa, and Rei in Free! -Timeless Medley- Bonds.

Rin who has decided to keep swimming to pursue his dream, remembers the past with Sousuke in Free! -Timeless Medley- Promise.

and finally, there will be a story where Haruka and the rest will set off towards the future. In the movie Free! -Take Your Marks- they’ll move towards a brand new starting block!

Nanase Haruka, a young boy with a special relationship with water, quit swimming because of a certain circumstance.

Haruka wanted to be free and not tied down to anything, but Makoto was with him no matter what, and he reunited with his underclassman Nagisa at Iwatobi High School, and then he met Rei who reminded him of the importance of friends, and so he begins swimming again.

Then comes his final summer of high school where he wants spend it with the best of friends. Even though Haruka says he wants to swim for his friends in the moment, he couldn’t concentrate to do it.

Haruka couldn’t see himself in a future after this and was lost. This puts him at odds with Makoto and the rest who are worried about him.

This is the story of Haruka being able to form strong ‘bonds’ with his irreplaceable friends, leading him to see a new sight standing on a new starting block.

Matsuoka Rin is a young boy who has decided to pursue his dead father’s dream of swimming competitively on the world stage. Rin, who holds special feelings towards the medley relay that his father also swam in, has a fight with his best friend Sousuke over their difference in opinion after swimming together in a relay. In the end, Rin decides to go find new teammates in order to swim in the best medley relay.

Determined to go to an even higher place Rin heads off for Australia. There he learns the true level of swimming on the world stage, and suffers a bitter setback. After returning home, in order to obtain his true strength at Samezuka Academy, he needs a team.

In the spring of his third year of high school, he is suddenly reunited with Sousuke. Rin is happy to be able to swim on the same team as him again, but Sousuke has a reason he’s decided to spend his final year of high school at Samezuka Academy that he won’t tell anyone…

Rin is swimming straight forward to pursue his dream, but this is the story of him facing his 'promise’ to his one and only best friend.
