About Free Eternal Summer (Season 2) + For the Future OVA Premium Edition Blu-ray/DVD

A Splash Of Water <3

Boxset:
I had my doubts on this package before receiving it as I got the Darker Than Black Premium Edition first and did not like the packaging for that but then once I recieved this I was impressed more then DTB packaging , it comes with everything that was mentioned by rightstuf I just wish the towel was a bigger size that I can use it to wrap around my body with after a nice shower but I still like it, as for the other items in it I enjoyed the cards that come with it especially of Rei as he is my fav of them all...I feel the price for this is worth it if you are a collector and enjoy this anime but if you ain't a collector I say stick with the reg edition ;)... Very happy it's not like the DTB premium edition that is for sure ;)

Survival... OF THE FISHES!

English dub aside, the Premium Edition is the best offer for die hard Free! fans. I pre-ordered the set on Funimation site and, while it took awhile, Funi did a fantastic job with the packaging. The interior has a pool/water caustics texture and the art book contains mini versions of official artwork that were previously published in popular Japanese magazines. The reversible DVD and BD covers are lifted directly from the Japanese edition and contain cute illustrations of your favorite "pairs" as well as their Future Fish cosplay antics. The Blu Ray menu is spectacular; rotating key images lifted from the Japanese covers played in time with the music score shows the level of detail Funi went through to make this the best Premium/Collector Edition I've ever bought.

If you can afford it, bet your buck on the For the Future edition. It's 1,000 more appealing than Eastern Star/Discotek's bare-bones release.

Sports Anime for Future Fish

As others have mentioned in their reviews, the Premium edition is the way to go for die-hard fans of Free -Eternal Summer. The outer box that stores everything is sturdy and compact and the artwork on the cases and art cards, as well as in the art book, are sure to be treasured. The decals are nice and the towel, though more of a hand towel than something to take to the beach or pool, is a cute addition. As for the show, the quality of the Blu-rays is superb, stunning picture and crisp sound as expected.

This is the second season of Free though and if you want the first season it is available, but with less than worthy presentation. I would get this and hold out on season 1 until, hopefully, Funimation obtains the rights and gives it a release to match this set. If you don't mind owning season 2 without 1, pick this up today. The show isn't just fan service, but a more emotional ride than it is given credit. Give it a shot and see for yourself.

Free Eternal Summer Premium Edition

This product is pretty cool, but definitely not worth about $90 unless you are a hardcore fan. It comes with some nice perks like the decals and the towel and the artbook, though the towel was a hand towel, which was a bit of a let down. The art book has lots of cool art and sketches from the series, but I didn't notice much of any commentary when I gave it a flip through (which is really okay by me anyways). I would recommend buying this if you are really into collectors' editions like I am, but if not, then you can just get the regular version.

I love it!!

I am a huge fan of Free!, and I felt the premium edition was definitely worth buying! I especially love the artbook; there are a lot of pages and each picture is beautiful! If you are a big fan, this is definitely for you! ^^

Really love this. The artwork and disc covers were beautiful; the box was a little big but for everything inside it's worth it. I especially like the sport towel included; it has a nice design and does not ruin when washed.
I would recommend this for those who are really invested in the series; a great gift.
