Fujojocast #2: What we love about Free
So gather 5 girls in skype to talk about Kyoto Animation’s and mayhem ensues.
Well… we tried to behave.
Kyoto Animation’s summer offering, Free, just ended last week and while our feels were still fresh, I gathered some friends to talk about their thoughts and emotions about the series.
With me are some friends from tumblr: Kat (batgirls), Taka (takanye), Airin (icecreambat), and Nozmo (junjouprince). And we spent a good time talking about abs, olympics, Australia, and this series just exceeded our expectations.
In case you guys haven’t caught up to speed, you can watch Free! in Crunchyroll! Then listen in on our podcast and share your feels.
Note: I apologize for the awful recording quality I have. ;__; Made a mistake with the microphones and so yeah… :< Sadness. Will fix that in the next podcasts. But do listen in! The girls sounded awesome though.
