I know I said this before but can't resist the urge to say this again Final Stroke, heh The stroke to end all strokes


Arvey34000

Dont know if they didnt know what they were doing, or if they knew EXACTLY.


ShadowClawz

They knew their demographics for sure. Idk what the effect is in the Japanese audience but that hits bullseye in the Western world. "Stroke my **** daddy"


RakshasaStreet

Yeah, this entire thread is full of sexual innuendos. Is there even a point in scrolling further...

The rest of the team: "Oh god not this again." The people in the audience: "This is not what we thought we would be watching today."


GodTaoistofPatience

Jizz, you're so naughty


ohnosoexcited

I used to swim so I am quite sure that “final stroke” is the terms use for the “last swing” of an arm to pull the water to finish the race. My Coach would usually say “Don’t breath on the last/last 2strokes” meaning it would have less resistance when not breath before the finish and want us to swim as fast as possible.


Sciros

I've done some swimming, myself. They're referring to stroking penises and also maybe, potentially, perhaps swimming.


kirsion

I was thinking of the medical stroke not that stroke lol


Illuminastrid

The perfect movie to watch with the Family.


tobeyornotoby

Yeah, I know what you mean... it sounds like an heart wrenching medical drama.


otakop

The story is reaching it's climax!


Farquadthefirst

You’re not alone there buddy. Heh


sonicjr

WashLimp1245

“The final stroke” can sound as dark as you want it to.


PG-Glasshouse

Stroking out in a pool and drowning is actually a pretty common occurrence.


WashLimp1245

r/thanks?


catseye013

Define “common”


PG-Glasshouse

It’s how you go.


ShadowClawz

Dark? More like lewd.


Lucenia

I think it’s impressive that KyoAni has been able to keep Free! going for as long as it has. I’ve underestimated just how successful of a series it’s been. I really enjoyed the first season and Eternal Summer, personally.


af-fx-tion

Since you mentioned it, I googled to see how long it's been since Season 1 debuted, and you were right. It's been crazy long - 8 years in fact. The fact the franchise has stayed strong so long is really a testament to KyoAni's great skill and care for the property.


Lucenia

I think in anyone else’s hands, the series wouldn’t have been as exciting as it’s been. The swimming sequences for the show are really well done.


apinkparfait

Is crazy to think about it, but KyoAni biggest money maker is not only a sports anime but the one who pushed the fujobait to a whole new level.

Releases in Japan on September 17. Part 2 releases on April 22, 2022 Theme song: "Heading to Over - Version:Free -" by OLDCODEX [New Trailer](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnXcfX04GOs) [Source](http://fs.iwatobi-sc.com/)


Septaluna

Not the second part being on my birthday 😍😍


disposable202

Isn't it a movie? Is it a movie split in half or two movies? How long is each?


zz2000

I assume (likely) it's a movie split in 2 parts.


dcresistance

It's 2 movies


AUOxCasGil

Yay it’s OLDCODEX again!


ohnosoexcited

Very interesting to see so many people make joke out of the title LOL. As a swimmer I can confirm that our coach use this terms a lot before the race or during a sprint set. They would talk about the last pull( or swing of your arms to pull) to finish the race or sprint as “Final stroke”


Wizardwizz

Can confirm, the final stroke for backstroke and free are different from normal free and backstroke


ohnosoexcited

Yes fellow swimmer greater extension by turning your hip fully!!


RakshasaStreet

Yeah, no clue how this thread escalated into nsfw zone...


stray-lower

lmao they managed to make it gay


Wizardrylullaby

Eren approves this


ExcellingAtExcel

Hope to see lots of yaoi bait.


[deleted]

should we not, it would be the upset of the century. total subversion.


PG-Glasshouse

I want the main characters to all get female love interest just to watch heads explode.


MejaBersihBanget

I saw some pretty serious meltdowns on Twitter just a few weeks ago when Vanitas made out with Jeanne in Vanitas no Carte.


Riizeyn_

I thought that twitter went mad because of the scene seemingly to be depicting the act of him sexually assaulting a woman


marialielie

Hah. Final stroke.

Makoto I miss you


senpaiking19

Sad, that we have to wait until 2022 for the second part of the movie.


nemcuro

Is there an anime about skating? I mean, theres a lot of anime about sports nowadays so I'd like to see one about skating with crazy badass techniques


Enigmaticfemmefatal

Figure skating? Yuri on ice Skateboarding? Sk8


ebonyphoenix

Rollerblading - Air Gear (though this one is less realistic than the others)


riiyoreo

Air Gear had one of the coolest OP songs I'd heard as a kid


Niks_kashyap

I second this


Draginia

There is a recent one about skateboarding called sk8 the infinity. English dub is amazing (and I usually prefer subs).

Zeus_47292

MejaBersihBanget

Because it's an actual swimming term.


Wolfgod_Holo

~~that wonderful fujoshi baiting anime~~

JVOz671

I knew it! In the anime about hot guys swimming, the final boss is the hottest guy ever swimming even faster! Afterwards I'll go watch Nascar and watch them turn left!


Alyssa-Matsuoka

My beloved Rin returns!!!!


12rez4u

That’s an interesting title


Johnnyacoma

I thought the 50% off season was really the peak. It was all downhill from there lol


GameMaster0097

Something tells me we're gonna see a lot of people gasping for air.


Jeroz

People joking about masturbation in comments while it's about the poor athlete suffering from cerebral infarction and has to end his promising career Smh


Dreaddisk

why do I feel this anime is going to have a lot of female fanservice?


chris10023

It doesn't, it has more male fanservice though, I think you see the teacher in a few bikinis in one scene, but that's about it, none of the female cast really has fanservice.


Dalnore

I guess "female fanservice" can be understood as both "fanservice for the female audience" and "fanservice by female characters". I think they meant the former.


chris10023

Ah, I thought he meant female characters, I've never heard of it being called female fansevice, I have heard it refereed to as manservice though.


nOtbatemann

Not that fanservice of any kind is bad but from what I gather from reddit, sexualizing underage female characters is the greatest sin since Satan but teenage boys is ok. Like yeah, they are half naked because they are swimming but they are often half naked even when they are far away from any water at all.


chris10023

> Like yeah, they are half naked because they are swimming but they are often half naked even when they are far away from any water at all. IIRC, it doesn't happen all that often, and the only character that does it a lot is Haru because he loves swimming so much and he often is found sitting in the bathtub in swim trunks.


nOtbatemann

The camera leers on them whenever they stretch too. There's a difference between showing them stretching because they are athletes and close ups of their wet bodies that belong on Pornhub.


riiyoreo

I don't think most anime sexualises boys to the same degree, frequency and extent as girls are sexualised in anime. And I don't think the majority of watchers are complaining about it. All the "accidental ecchi", groping, panty & boob shots, dressed in bikinis as a fire fighter etc. is much worse than seeing swimmer dudes shirtless imo.


nOtbatemann

>. is much worse than seeing swimmer dudes shirtless imo. As I said, they are frequently shirtless where no water is to be found. >I don't think most anime sexualises boys to the same degree I disagree. Anime isn't a monilith. It is just a medium that is made for specific audiences. Plenty of bathhouse scenes feature teenage boys. Random shirtless scenes are still around. Look at Fairy Tail, where Grey and Natsu strip for no reason.


riiyoreo

> Plenty of bathhouse scenes feature teenage boys. Random shirtless scenes are still around Bath house scenes aren't inherently sexual for girls or guys (Eg. Yuru camp). It becomes sexual when they're presented dedicatedly in titillating angles or shots (close up of boobs, playful groping as yuri bait) I'd agree that Fairy tail is one of the few shounen anime that actually sexualises some of the male characters too. But still not to the extent that Lucy or Erza are. And most females in Fairy tail are presented sexually, and men as power fantasies. > I disagree. Anime isn't a monilith You can disagree but that won't change the fact that an overwhelming majority of anime IS laden with male fanservice. Think of at least 10 maintstream anime where the man's bulge is so big it's poking out through his pants, where there are special emphasis shots of his ass, or he's constantly finding himself in embarrassing sexual positions. Eg. Bokutachi no remake: At this point (4th episode), the entire main female cast has been sexualised (boob shot, accidental stripping, rubbing boobs against MC) but nothing of the sort has happened with the male cast. Eg. Black Clover's Lush witch, constantly in her bra and panties. Eg. That one girl in a bikini in Fire Force, constantly being "accidentally stripped" even in the middle of serious moments. Eg. The infamous r*pe scene in SAO. Eg. Almost every harem, ecchi is male-catering. Even many romcoms. (Note the lack of decent reverse harems. Most reverse harems aren't aggressively objectifying the men- they're instead making them classy/well dressed/chivalry baiting) Eg. The german conductor casually groping Nodame in Nodame Cantabile, taking panty shots, etc. Eg. Higehiro which was preaching "no sex with highschooler!" while constantly putting it's female lead in forced fanservice moments against a 27 year old man. Eg. The countless upskrit shots, bath peaking scenes, accidental or otherwise, that we've been subjected to since we were kids. Eg. Doraemon, Sinchan This isn't an opinion, it's a legitimate trend that's obvious to everyone who's not busy denying it. I don't have an issue with light hearted fanservice. But for one example of female fanservice anime, I can give you ten anime where females are used for fanservice - often in a much more unabashed, vulgar way. **You tell me 3 anime this season with dedicated female fanservice that isn't just a random sports anime or well dressed men.**


nOtbatemann

>I'd agree that Fairy tail is one of the few shounen anime that actually sexualises some of the male characters too. But still not to the extent that Lucy or Erza are. And most females in Fairy tail are presented sexually, and men as power fantasies. You're the one enabling double standards. Natsu has no reason to strip half naked and Grey is always half naked even when he's *not* use his ice powers. How is this not blatant fanservice? It isn't for the plot and tells us nothing about their character. By your logic, Lucy and Erza stripping is a power fantasy.


riiyoreo

> You're the one enabling double standards. Natsu has no reason to strip half naked and Grey is always half naked even when he's *not* use his ice powers. How is this not blatant fanservice? That's exactly why I said that Fairy tail is one of the few anime that DOES sexualise some male characters too? Some i.e Natsu, Gray. Afaik I don't recall a dedicated "shirtless kinkwear" event for men but I DO remember a bikini event in that random tournament arc. I do remember countless towel scenes for Lucy and Erza. I do remember how many dedicated "sexy" panels they got. The only proper fanservice females got was from Gray. ALSO, you ignored everything else I said to make a random strawman against the one statement where I somewhat **agreed** with you, lmao. Go ahead and answer the last thing I asked in my previous comment. Also go ahead and search up the harem tag and let me know how many reverse harems you find that have vulgar depictions of men with giant asses, and dick bulges so big they're poking out.


nOtbatemann

>That's exactly why I said that it's one of the few anime that DOES sexualise some male characters too? You also said it was a power fantasy, which is false. Random shirtlessness is not a display of power. My opinion about fanservice is that its harmless. The same females who say sexualizing female characters is the greatest sin to humanity are also the same females who likely watch One Piece just to see Luffy's abs. Ab shots aren't any more classy than panty shots. Not saying that's what you said but either all fanservice is unnecessary and objectifying or none of it is.


riiyoreo

> You also said it was a power fantasy, which is false. Random shirtlessness is not a display of power. I said that in respect to "most men" while agreeing with you about Natsu and Gray. Every dude isn't there for fanservice unlike those two. Like Gildarts, Laxus and Gajeel. But I haven't seen the central female characters (main and supporting) not being in a bikini/fetish outfit at least once throughout the manga/show. > The same females who say sexualizing female characters is the greatest sin to humanity are also the same females who likely watch One Piece just to see Luffy's abs. Ab shots aren't any more classy than panty shots Fanservice isn't the greatest sin to humanity but the constant overwhelming amount of the pornification of female characters in anime is. The sheer lack of anime giving females fanservice is an issue with me. Abs aren't the same as panty shots, either in real life or anime. The female counterpart for male fanservice isn't abs. It's giant dicks and asses. You still haven't answered my question asking you to name anime like that. Even Mikasa has abs. Maki from Fire force has abs. There is nothing inherently vulgar or sexual about abs. Try telling anyone sane that abs are vulgar. But that's all you can say because while men get giant tits, small lolis, overwhelming amounts of ecchi and harem service, dedicated panty shots, boob shots, yuri baiting, kinkwear, groping- female audience gets the occasional "abs" and "sports anime" and the extremely rare "reverse ecchi" that's all it takes for you to say "HAH! There is your fanservice, girls! Stop bitching!"
