Wait there was sexuality in K-ON?! The only thing that even remotely came close was when Mio fell down accidentally flashed everyone(Ritsu: RICE BOWL)

According to the article, the 4-koma manga Free! was put on indefinite hiatus for "various reasons".
A Japanese blog (http://xxshanimunixx.blog92.fc2.com/blog-entry-79.html) also wonders if this move against the 4-koma was due to Kyoani's influence.
If he didn't file any required legal paperwork safeguarding his manga's name and KyoAni did then sucks to be him imo.

Exactly this...

I know everyone wanted the project to be this, FMP3, another KEY adaption (me ) or a sequel to another one of their works. This is nice to see them doing a different genre for a change.

I hope we get actual swimming too

I don't want cute boys doing cute things. I want a sports series with character development.

People are overreacting, and in an uncomfortable Double Standard manner as usual. Would any of these people even raise an eyebrow if it was cute girls again? I think not.

Personally, as much as I'd like to see continuations of franchises I like (*cough* Haruhi *cough*), I'm curious at this, as again it's KyoAni going against the expected vein. Should be an interesting experience.

Given that one of the self-titled genre classifications is "upper bodies" and swimming gives the show the least contrived excuse to show them, I think it's safe to assume plenty of time will be spent in the pool.

In or around the pool...

Anyway, KyoAni being who they are I'm sure there will be some nicely animated swimming. But emphasis on sport or character development? I wouldn't hold my breath. XD This seems like a nice, fun, "turn off your brain and enjoy" type eyecandy romp designed to sell tons of BDs and merchandise (and personally I'm fine with that).

Well it's not like Kyoani is incapable of character development.

See the recent Hyouka!

And maybe turn off your brain, guys in the pool is enough for some people but I guess I am hoping for something more than that.

If it turns out to be just that I probably will watch but I can't see it will be something I will buy.

God those hairstyles :/

Worst is that derpy guy at 0:36. Ah I guess nothing changes.

But hey, at least the others look passable even if wayyy too muscular.

The lead kid and the kid at the end are cute.

Everyone else looks like Generic Anime Teenage Boys 101.

I haven't seen Hyouka, but anyway, I'm not saying KyoAni is incapable of that sort of thing, just that... well, look at the promo materials. I'm sure they'll try for some story, and we'll have an emphasis on character interaction, but I wouldn't hope for anything intellectually stimulating. (Of course I wouldn't mind ending up being wrong, but...)

Overall I have no problem with this being a shallow eyecandy, as long as it's entertaining shallow eyecandy. I just wish they'd gotten someone else instead of Miyano.

I am not really sure what you can show in the promo material? Sure the series is going to have fan service and its selling that but that doesn't mean that's all it will be.

It's a sports series about swimming so there is plenty opportunity to have a fun series that also develops the characters and their relationships around that concept.

Considering how much Kyoani has regressed for me over the years, I can only take this new approach for them as an improvement.

Muscular bishounen > Airheads and moeblobs.

Doubly so considering a new season of Full Metal Panic will likely never happen...

Nah, there was no such thing. There is, however, a part of the fandom that sees shipping wars in everything under the sun and can twist any innocent action into sexual innuendo in their minds.

That and Mugi-vision...

The director has mentioned that a major focus of the series will be character development.

Then again, considering how a lot of people seem to think that K-On! doesn't feature character development, I wouldn't hold my breath on them catching any potential instances of it in this series either.

There's more summer shows aimed at the female than expected
Anyway I'll watch the first episodes and see if it is interesting enough aside from the visuals.

Exactly, I don't think there's going to be any type of BL subtext unless they make them a bit girly but fujoshis will watch any type of action as shipping material

People will ship anything into whatever they want really

This is probaly just going to wind up as a slice of life with swimming, but even I know the fans will probaly ship this as BL.

Mugi was the best though! Her and her eyebrows Though I adore Azu-nyan too.

I bet the blondish kid with the green eyes that doesn't look like shota bait in the FREE! PV is probaly the Yui of this group.
