THERE ARE NO WORDS.
I AM BEYOND EXCITED. THIS ANIME HAS BEEN RUINING MY LIFE SINCE MARCH WITH THE FIRST 30 SECOND COMMERCIAL. AND IT WILL CONTINUE TO RUIN MY LIFE EVEN THIS YEAR.
When I found out that there was a talk event for January 26th, I was excited. To say the least. I not so patiently waited for it to be the 26th. Then we found out the event was a talk session, and that there were two parts, a day and night portion.
Thanks to the time differences, these events were from 11pm-1am and 5am-7am for me. I was too anxious and pumped up to fall asleep before 12:30am. Not sure when I slept, but around then. I then woke up at 3:15am to check my phone to see if the announcement had been made.
After I finished checking my phone, I was a bit sad by the lack of announcement, but I tried to remember when the second talk event was happening. Needless to say, I didn't fall asleep again. Finally at 4:45am I got out of bed and started my day for work.
Hell yes. Less than three hours of sleep to do six hours of work. I AM SUCH A GENIUS.
I was starting to get ready to leave when I refreshed tumblr just one more time at 5:30am, and read "I think they just announced it." Followed by a new picture that confirmed it.
Needless to say, I started vibrating. I was vibrating, and I no longer felt tired, and I was on cloud nine. Since everyone else in my house was sleeping, I had to stay quiet. When I got into my car, I started screaming at the top of my lungs.
IT WAS LIKE CHRISTMAS MORNING AT SEVEN YEARS OLD ALL OVER AGAIN.
That was all of the energy I needed.
BUT THAT ANNOUNCEMENT MEANS THAT FREE! CAN RUIN MY LIFE FOR ALL OF THIS YEAR AS WELL. THIS SUMMER I GET TO DROWN IN FEELS AGAIN. LETS DO THIS.
Oh... and I kinda rested after work. I laid down and listened to music for two hours, but I didn't sleep. I did get overly emotional whenever any Free! music started playing.
I was also very amused and confused at 3:30am when the Free! fandom was going insane over orange traffic cones. Apparently the Japanese fans at the event starting beating each other with them while in line for a poster and/or keychain thing that sold out in nine minutes. Fujoshi's can be scary.
