Get your hot-stuff Free! plushes ready to swim


Undressable...as all swimming men should be

Hey, Free!'s a thing, right? Kyoto Animation may be on to Beyond the Boundary now, but the legacy of their landmark swimming anime will live on, if Bandai has anything to say about it.

All the ladies and lads that want to snuggle up to their favorite animate pool-buddy can now obtain their very own plush replica of Free!'s young swimming youths, in tracksuited and T-shirted form. 

But wait! Not a lot of people, much less competitive swimmers, swim in T-shirts and tracksuits! Well, Bandai have thought of that, and you're covered: All the plushes can have their upper clothing removed, revealing smooth, soft fabric chests and those weird speedos they wear. Lovely.

It's just too bad the plushes are made of...well, plush, which means they can't actually get too wet, no matter how much you undress them. Oh, cruel reality!
