Free! Dive to the Future BD Volume 2

1080p | 720p

There encodes from this volume onward are going to be a bit cursed because only the first volume of the Japanese BDs was ever uploaded. For the rest, I’m going to be using the US BD release. It does look a bit worse, but it’s obviously still way better than the simulcast, so it’s still worth doing. I also spliced in the OP and ED from the Japanese BDs so you don’t have to see Funi’s disgusting English credits. This is fine for the OP since the credits never change, but it’s a bit of a problem for the ED since they do every episode. Oh well, not like you can read them. And like before, I masked the Japanese hardsubs during the sections where they speak English since Funi’s BDs had them for some reason.

Of course, if someone ever uploads the rest of the Japanese BDs, I’ll v2 all the episodes encoded from the US BDs. It should be pretty trivial since I won’t have to touch the subs or anything. I wouldn’t hold your breath, though, since it’s been over 2 years since the Japanese BDs came out.

Free! Dive to the Future BD Volume 1

1080p | 720p

Episode 00 is the same file as what was previously released. I masked the Japanese hardsubs for the English sections for your viewing pleasure with CR’s video since it’s the only source that doesn’t have them. Also, just a reminder that this show is animated at 1080p and the 720p version isn’t recommended unless absolutely necessary.

Anyway, a lot of scenes in this season make way more sense after having watched High Speed and Take Your Marks.

Free! Dive to the Future 00

1080p | 720p

Like the filename suggests, this is quite literally episode 0 in that it’s set after Take Your Marks and before episode 1 of the series. It’s not just your usual unrelated (in terms of plot) OVA. Anyway, I won’t be subbing the rest of the BDs since they haven’t been uploaded other than the first Japanese volume, which includes this episode. In fact, the only reason I could even sub this is because Funi started streaming it on their website recently. Even their BD release hasn’t been uploaded. If the BDs ever are, I will of course sub them.

Also, a reminder that this anime is native 1080p, so the 720p release isn’t recommended.

Free! Take Your Marks

1080p | 720p

Although this was shown in theaters as a movie, both the Japanese and US BD release split it up into episodes like this. Also, this was animated at 1080p, so the 720p release is not recommended unless you have a tiny monitor or something. Lastly, like I said in the blog post for the season 3 batch release, I won’t be working on the BDs for that until Funi releases their BD, which I’d estimate will come out sometime around the end of the year.
