Nothing, it’s just adults are boring, and I hate them. And I don’t want to buy all this stupid, boring, adult stuff and become boring adults.
Hey, listen to me. Yes, we’re gonna get a dish rack and shower curtains and a cutting board. But if you think for one second I’m not also gonna get that marshmallow shooter, so that I can shoot you in the face with marshmallows when you’re asleep, then you’re the dumbest man I know.
Free! Novelize Chapter 6: It’s Meaningless Without You
I cannot impart to you the miracle that
happened for me to get this to you. It’s actually been ready for a couple
weeks, but I haven’t had the time to type it up. SO before we begin, a couple
-I apologize for the blatant irreverence
for verb tense; it switches from present to past and back again. So I tried to
leave it as similar as possible so it can drive all of you crazy too I
apologize for that in advance.
-Also again with the spacing, practically
everything has its own paragraph in the book.
-‘Dice Talk’ is literally what the
phonetic vocabulary word is for the dice game in the chapter.
-There are a couple lines it is a bit hard to tell who is talking without seeing their speech pattern, so I added the first letter of their name in a bracket after the line just as an aid.
-And finally, the Japanese language
frequently doesn’t believe in periods, causing a lot of run on sentences. I
adjusted accordingly, but if anything seems overly long, that’s why.
1. Let’s not focus on the ships. Please, let’s take a minute to remember what Free! was about.
2.Stop separating Rin from the Iwatobis. I get it, he has his own team but with how things are going, it almost looks like he’s nothing but a rival with nothing in common with the other Iwatobi peeps except Haru. Let’s not forget THE BEST TEAM.
3.More swimming. Definitely.
6.Skype sessions with Rin and his friends
8.Haru smiling more but not losing character
10.seriously stop keeping sousuke and makoto apart
11.Let’s go back to how we felt when Free! just aired Season 1. Friendship, being there for each other, pain, and resolve. Let’s not forget the real meaning of Free! in favor of hinted romance.
12.Rin and Makoto interactions? Without the others? Anyone?
13.Olympic! Rin and Haru (or training)
14.Kisumi and Asahi!
15.Nagisa improving his grasshopper stroke (maybe lol)
16.Don’t forget about OLDCODEX. Seriously.
17.I hope it’s a new season! Not just a movie
18.Sousuke finding another dream of his own.
19.Nagisa and Rei visiting Tokyo?
20.What happened to Makkou? (Haru’s dog)
22.I don’t want Haru to swim other strokes.
23.please please please a little soumako won’t ruin your day
25. Scared! Makoto
26.Haru eating anything but mackerel (or not)
27. More character interactions from everyone
28. And don’t forget the character songs! Please!
29.Let’s continue making Free! happen :D For all the people like me who will never stop loving Free! Thanks for giving us more!

Reigisa Mook: A Butterfly in a Distant Planet Clip
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*
In my world everyone is a pony… AH and also Nagisa is a girl.
IT’S MY CANON.
He’s a boy in anime but looks like a girl. I tried to draw him as lady but HERE HE IS LIKE A BOY. What’s wrong with this character???
THE REIGISA DUET CD ORIGINAL DRAMA IS SO CUTE. REI-CHAN IS PRETTY BLATANTLY IN LOVE, BUT WE ALL KNOW THAT. You can really hear the adoration he has for Nagisa in his voice. I JUST CAN’T WITH THESE TWO!!!
[NAGISA]: Ah, Rei-chan! Here, here! [REI]: (running) Sorry for making you wait, Nagisa-kun. I’m so sorry for being three minutes late to our predetermined meeting time. [NAGISA]: It’s fine! I just got here too! [REI]: What about Haruka-senpai and the others? [NAGISA]: Seems like they’re not here either… [REI]: That’s weird. Didn’t we say to meet at the plaza in front of the station at 11:00am? [NAGISA]: That’s right. We were supposed to gather at 11 and then go to a sports club to pick out swimsuits…AHH!!! [REI]: What’s wrong? [NAGISA]: I’m so sorry, Rei-chan, I totally messed up! I actually told them to meet up at 1pm! Guess it’s better we’re early than late, right? [REI]: That’s true but…what are we going to do for the next 2 hours? [NAGISA]: Why don’t we just bum around somewhere? [REI]: We shouldn’t waste time! There’s a saying that time is money! [NAGISA]: You’re starting to sound like Ama-chan sensei. Well then, let’s see what kind of interesting place we can go to… AHA! Let’s go there, over there! [REI]: There?
[REI]: Karaoke…? [NAGISA]: Yes! We can each sing as much as we want for 1 hour for only 150 yen! But drinks are not included… [REI]: This is…karaoke? [NAGISA]: Woah, hold up, Rei-chan. Is this the first time at karaoke? [REI]: Is that a problem? I just never had the opportunity to do so… [NAGISA]: Oh really~? That is definitely quite rare… [REI]: Do you think so? [NAGISA]: But I’m glad because i can be the first person to witness Rei-chan sing karaoke! I’ll teach you all about it! First, this is the remote control and this is the microphone… [REI]: Uh…I know that. Besides, it’s not like I said I can’t sing… [NAGISA]: Now don’t say that…I really love Rei-chan’s voice! [REI]: Aahh…I…uh…huh… it’s really just a very normal voice… [NAGISA]: No way! That’s why I really want to listen to Rei-chan’s singing! [REI]: But.. [NAGISA]: I want to hear itt!!! (nudge nudge nudge) [REI]: Umm…ahh…nnhh….please stop that… [NAGISA]: I bet that Rei-chan’s singing voice is very beautiful! [REI]: You think…it’s beautiful? (laughs) Indeed this might be my first time singing at a karaoke box, but I have somewhat glanced at the theories of vocal music before! All right then, shall I let you listen to my charming voice at this memorable first time at karaoke! [NAGISA]: (laughs) Yeah, I’m so excited! [REI]: Okay, let’s choose a song… [NAGISA]: Oh before that, let’s get a drink..drink… Rei-chan, what would you like? [REI]: (looking through the electronic menu) Why are there so many different selections of drinks??? [NAGISA]: That’s right! Hmm…I think I’ll choose the “Burst of Youth Strawberry and Cream Soda.” What about you, Rei-chan? [REI]: Uh…welll… [NAGISA]: Hurry up and choose! Time is running out~ [REI]: Please give me a second! (internally) Well this seasonal limited edition 100% hand squeezed juice certainly seems appealing…but maybe that’s too adventurous… In that case this Nakaga Specialty 60% Pear Juice looks good…But wait, why does it say 60%? What’s in the other 40%? [NAGISA]: Rei-chan…c'mon you’re too slow! I’m going to order first! (clicks) OKAY! [REI]: Wait, that remote control can also order drinks?! [NAGISA]: That’s right! Well then, I bet Rei-chan wants this “old fashion barley tea” drink! Okay I’ll order that for you YEAH! [REI]: Wait, Nagisa-kun! What are you doing so suddenly–! And besides that’s just regular barley tea! [NAGISA]: But that’s because you were taking too long to decide! But anyway, what would you like to sing? What kind of songs do you like, Rei-chan? [REI]: For music, I pretty much listen to anything. I’m sure I can sing something I’ve listened to before. Uhm…(chooses the song)…Uh…they’re all songs i have never heard of! What’s this one? “I Love You More Than Anyone.” [NAGISA]: What is that? An old song? [REI]: Now that you mention it, my dad used to listen to old songs like this on the radio before…if that’s the case I think I can probably sing this. [NAGISA]: Sing it sing it~ I want to hear Rei-chan’s love song! [REI]: All right! Please feel free to be charmed by my song! (silence) Hmm? Seems like it didn’t start? [NAGISA]: I wonder why…maybe there’s something wrong with the wireless connection? [REI]: Well then, let’s choose the next song. Hm…(beep beep) Ah! I know this song! “Winning by Love and Courage.” It’s a classic! Goes like: “At last victory is achieved with love and courage!” (beep beep) Eh? [NAGISA]: It didn’t start again… [REI]: Uh…how about this? “Very Very Happy Berry.” Maybe it’s a recent song? (beep) “A Beautiful Unrequited Love” (beep) “Tell Him To Kiss Me" (beep) "Spices Come By Your Side”* [NAGISA]: Huh? Spiced Soba noodles…? Ah! Wait, let me see the remote control’s screen! [REI]: It’s definitely broken! The songs don’t start at all! [NAGISA]: No you’re wrong, Rei-chan! The list you’re looking at is a menu for food! [REI]: WHAT?! [NAGISA]: Assorted ice cream, soft-boiled egg pork cutlet rice, sunshine berry parfait, steak and curry soba noodles! [REI]: Why are all those names so misleading?!?! DOES THAT MEAN I ORDERED ALL OF THAT?!?!!
[REI]: (making barfing noises) [NAGISA]: Well I kinda ate too much, but it was really yummy! [REI]: Eghh, my stomach is in pain, but a more trying question is how are we going to pay for all this?! [NAGISA]: It’s okay! Since I was going to buy a swimsuit, I came prepared with some large bills. Anyway, let’s cheer up and just sing! Sing! [REI]: That’s right. Okay…this time I won’t mess up…hmm? THIS IS–! [NAGISA]: What happened? [REI]: There’s a list that shows a ranking system? [NAGISA]: That’s right! It’s a function that awards points to songs. [REI]: IS THIS!!! IS THIS THE LEGENDARY KARAOKE SCORING MACHINE?! AH! There’s a history of people who used this room before we came in! They got super high points! [NAGISA]: Wow, 92 points! Mikoshiba Seijuuro…? [REI]: Wait…Mikoshiba…you don’t mean…Samezuka’s… [NAGISA]: Captain! [REI]: In this place…! And his real name is written everywhere! Seems like something he would do… [NAGISA]: Ah! And under him is Nitori…does that mean Ai-chan?! [REI]: 89 points! Seems like he sung a popular song by an Idol group! [NAGISA]: Ahh…AHH! AND UNDER THAT IS A PERSON CALLED RIN-RIN?! DOES THAT MEAN RIN-CHAN?! [REI]: 75 points. Even though his swimming is spectacular, he lost to his Kouhai** in the field of singing… [NAGISA]: Poor Rin-chan…That’s right, Rei-chan! Rei-chan can defeat all of them here and become Number 1! [REI]: All right! I will triumph over Rin-chan’s score and show him how inferior he is to me! Theoretically speaking, the method to achieve a high score is to choose a song that does not have much range! WHICH MEANS…AH HA! Wait, not this song. Not this one either. And not this one as well…
[REI]: (making frustrated noises) [NAGISA]: Rei-chan~, you still haven’t decided? [REI]: Please wait a little longer! [NAGISA]: It seems like you’ll take a long time, so can I sing first? [REI]: Wait a second, this is my first time at a karaoke place, so I must make it memorable and find the perfect song but even so, Nagisa-kun will sing first? That will not do! (grumbling grumbling) OH! I know this song! And the vocal range is perfect! THIS IS THE ONE! [NAGISA]: Okay, hurry up and choose it! [REI]: Yes! Hmm….huh? [NAGISA]: What’s wrong? [REI]: This thing…What is this function right here? [NAGISA]: Oh, that’s a function that allows you to record your own songs and make it into a CD! [REI]: Are you serious? Recording my own songs into a CD!? It’s just like recording your swimming performance and replaying it at any time, so you can basically check how your singing performance is too, right? This is amazing! I definitely want to try this! (beep beep) Huh? What is THIS function? [NAGISA]: Oh that? It’s to add a harmony to accompany your voice. [REI]: OH MY GOSH~!!! You can add a harmony to your own voice? I MUST TRY THAT AS WELL! Wait a second…this harmony function… I added it to the song I chose just now but it didn’t go through? Does that mean I have to choose one more song to correct that? Uh…what is this? ANOTHER NEW DISCOVERY! Voice effect! [NAGISA]: Rei-chan, are you done yet? [REI]: Please wait a second! Huh? Well the voice effect does seem promising, but I wonder how the process might deter from the original beautiful and raw singing voice. But then again, what exactly can compete with people who are inherently born with beautiful and raw voices…? And wait, there’s another function that is different from the voice effect that gives you a rich tone and makes it seem like you’re singing on the top of a professional stage and…! [NAGISA]: (yawning) [REI]: Nagisa-kun, please do not sleep on my lap! Nagisa-kun~!!! Aww, come on, are you a child? (laughs) Well, we did practice very long yesterday and woke up very early today…(pats Nagisa and contentedly sighs***) But… [NAGISA]: (mumbles in his sleep) Rei-chan… [REI]: (giggles) I won’t be able to sing if you stay like this. Honestly…
Notes: *All of the songs Rei choose are puns on food (katsu, soba noodles, ice cream, steak, etc.) **Kouhai refers to someone younger than you. ***REI FREAKING PATS NAGISA ARE YOU KIDDING ME MY SHIPPER HEART CANNOT TAKE THIS AND ALSO OMG THE REIGISA IN THIS THE REIGISAAAAA IN THISSSSS SO MUCH CANON MOMENTS AND REI OBVIOUSLY VERY CONSCIOUSLY CHOOSING SONGS THAT SHOW HIS TRUE EMOTIONS GDI THEY ARE TOO CUTE I JUST THIS WAS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER LISTENED TO OMG.
