Lord Marksman and Vanadis (available now!) features Lord Tigrevurmud Vorn and several, stunning War Maidens — each with godlike abilities!
Motivated to take arms for different reasons, these sovereign women approach each situation with otherworldly powers yet relatable personalities… And we noticed that some of these War Maidens reminded us of other powerful women in myth! So just for fun, we’ve matched a few of the War Maidens to comparable Greek Goddesses.
First up is…
Known as the Winged Goddess of Victory and the Goddess of Strength, Speed, and Victory. Nike would fly around battlefields rewarding victors with glory and fame. But which of the War Maidens does she most closely resemble?
You may remember all the celebration pics we took over the last year commemorating our favorite swimboys’ birthdays. We had a blast making homemade desserts and setting up perfect photos of the Iwatobi and Samezuka boys’ special days. We want to see how you’ll celebrate this Valentine’s Day in the best way possible—surrounded by totems or romantic Valentine’s dinners with your favorite good-looking 2D swimmers. And hey, if you aren’t really into the idea of loving any one Free! boy, we’ll totally take celebratory photos of your favorite pairs of boys…
Send us your pics of how YOU’RE celebrating Valentine’s day with your favorite Free! boy(s) by February 15, and we’ll share them on the Free! ES Facebook page and Tumblr! Also, we’ll giving away a prize pack of Free! ES merchandise (as we always do with this show) to our favorite entry.
How can you submit? We’re giving you a ton of ways where we’ll repost entries as we get them and share the final set the day after Valentine’s:

We are upgrading all three releases of Free! -Eternal Summer- to include the OVA, a fourteenth episode of the series that was not broadcast on Japanese television or on simulcast! This will affect the Premium Edition, Limited Edition, and Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack. All three will now be available February 16, 2016 (but pre-order now)!
We’ve been working hand-in-hand with our licensing partners in Japan to be able to make this change for you, and through collaborating together, we are now able to put the series and OVA together. This is a new opportunity that hasn’t been available before, so we’re excited to be bringing all of Free! -Eternal Summer- to fans in one single package.
What does this mean for you? If you’ve pre-ordered the series already, no sweat—your order will remain the same, but your home video release will now include the extra content. If you haven’t pre-ordered yet, you can do so now—pre-order before the release date and you’ll also be entered to win some great prizes! (If you’ve already pre-ordered, you’re already automatically entered.)
The OVA is really pretty special—an all-out water gun fight full-length episode with the Iwatobi and Samezuka boys, full of hilarity and drama and wet swimmer boys and… maid outfits? Who’s going to come out on top?! Suffice to say, if you’re a Free! fan craving more content after the end of the TV series, you won’t want to miss out on this one.
Hey Tokyo Ghoul fans, we’ve got some updates and changes for you on the Season 1 release, so we wanted to make sure you have the latest news. We know you’re ready to eat up this title as soon as possible!
In the process of manufacturing the Season 1 Collector’s Edition, we found some physical defects in the finished product that we just couldn’t accept. This does mean that the Collector’s Edition will be delayed, but these issues will NOT affect the Standard or Limited Edition – those will still be released as planned on September 22nd. We currently don’t have a release date for the corrected Collector’s Edition. As soon as we do, we will communicate it to you.
If you have already pre-ordered a Collector’s Edition, your order is absolutely still valid, and we’ll get this new production run out to you as soon as we can.
Thanks again for all of your patience as we work through this process!

An essential addition to any anime collection, Fullmetal Alchemist recounts the compelling story of the Elric brothers: Two young alchemists who sacrificed innocence and flesh when they ignored the laws of Alchemy in an attempt to resurrect their mother. The horrors they recklessly unleash mark the beginning of an adventure that leads an unforgettable cast of characters from darkness to light and back again.
In an era of war and corruption, State Alchemist Edward Elric and his brother Alphonse desperately search for the Philosopher’s Stone. The legendary artifact is their last hope to restore what they’ve lost – but how far will they go to get it? From the ashes of their childhood, Edward and Alphonse quickly rise to fame within the ranks of the military, realizing along the way that the power to create is only ever a breath away from the power to destroy. And whether they’re up against monsters, madmen, or military officials, the bond these brothers share will be the greatest weapon they have in the fight for their lives.
We’ve had a wave of recent announcements and events for the swimming anime phenomenon Free! -Eternal Summer-, but we’re not done yet! Today, fresh from our AnimeExpo panel, we’re revealing two new big pieces of news—a Free! ES Premium Edition AND news about the long-awaited OVA episode!
The Premium Edition will include not only the Free! -Eternal Summer- Limited Edition that we unveiled earlier this month (featuring that gorgeous rigid chipboard box with water gloss effect!) but also these collectibles you can’t get anywhere else:
A full-color art book, including many gorgeous pieces exclusive only to the original Japanese releases
Seven glossy art cards also using exclusive, highly detailed art from the covers of the Japanese releases—you’ll definitely want to frame these
A color sports towel, so you can take the boys to the pool or beach!
An Iwatobi and a Samezuka decal to show off your school pride
And finally, everything housed in a handsome collector’s box to hold all your Free! collectibles
PLUS! Customers who pre-order the Premium Edition from FUNimation.com will automatically be entered to win a gorgeously sculpted 1/8 scale figure of everyone’s favorite water-lover, Haruka Nanase, from Alter! These highly detailed figures are sold out in Japan and pretty rare to find, so order by September 29 to get a shot.
We’ve also been receiving a lot of questions about the Free! -Eternal Summer- OVA, a special unaired full episode featuring the Iwatobi and Samezuka boys in an intense, dramatic, no-holds-barred (and totally hilarious) water gun battle. We’re excited to finally announce that we do have the rights to this OVA, and it will be released in 2016.
We know that some fans hoped the OVA would be included in the Eternal Summer release. Given the Japanese release dates, we’ve decided to release the OVA separately in order to be able to release the season on home video this year. Since we’ve seen such a huge outpouring of passion and excitement for this title, we definitely don’t want to make you guys wait til 2016 for the entire release.
