A translation of the one of the previews for the Free! Drama CD.. putting this under a cut cos it’s pretty long…
A point of interest:
NAGISA BULLYING REI INTO SHAVING DOWN THERE.
Haruka: Free! drama CD, Iwatobi High School Swim Club, Daily Club Activities.
Rei: A Scene on a Certain Day.
Gou: Haruka-senpai! Fight!
Makoto: Good job, Haru, here, hold on!
Makoto: Your time went down again huh?
Haruka: I told you I’m not interested in that.
Makoto: Same as ever, huh…
Nagisa: Haru-chan! Mako-chan! My best came up too! Praise me, praise me~!
Haruka: Nagisa, you’re heavy! Don’t hug me from behind!
Nagisa: Ehhh~ why not~
Makoto: Your best time huh, that’s great, Nagisa!
Nagisa: But Mako-chan, your best time went down as well right?
Makoto: Well, I’ve been feeling great lately..
Gou: Haruka-senpai, Makoto-senpai and Nagisa-kun all improved their best times!
Nagisa: Ah! Gou-chan!
Gou: The three of you are improving nicely but… Rei-kun is…
Rei: Something’s wrong… I can’t improve my time…
Gou: Looks like he’s having problems about that..
Makoto: Is that so?
Gou: I wonder why though. It’s not like he can’t follow through the practice menus we’re doing…
Rei: Of course, there’s no way I’d be negligent in my training!
Haruka: Rei, are you trying to change your form?
Rei: Yes, I’ve been watching world swimming competition’ DVDs and reading materials to look for techniques to apply and change to my form…
Makoto: Ah, Rei! Trying to change your form would result to—
Nagisa: I get it! You should shave down there!
Nagisa: I saw in some TV show that shaving decreases resistance through water!
Makoto: Ah~! I’ve seen that program too!
Rei: Just what are you suggesting, Nagisa-kun?
Nagisa: What I’m saying is, Rei-chan, you should shave down there!
Rei: Denied! No way I’ll approve of that! Impossible!
Nagisa: Eh~ why not, Rei-chan~?
Rei: Why do I have to do that in the first place?! Haruka-senpai, help me out!
Haruka: Nagisa, stop it.
Nagisa: Don’t stop me, Haru-chan! This is for Rei-chan’s sake after all!
Haruka: Rei, just give up.
Nagisa: Rei-chan, didn’t you want to increase your speed??
Rei: I—…I do…but that suggestion—
Nagisa: Rei-chan, an athlete should do everything in their power to excel in the sport they engage in, that’s what I believe! That’s why it’ll be alright! Just leave it to me!
Rei: N-Nagisa-kun…? W-why are you holding on to me like that?
Nagisa: I’ll shave it cleanly for you, okay~? Now off to the club room!!
Rei: W-wait— Nagisa-kun! Now way! L-let me go!
Nagisa: It’ll be okay, okay~!
Rei: What do you mean it’ll be okay?!
Nagisa: You’ll be super smooth and shiny after this~!
Rei: Don’t say it like a CM for some soap! I don’t want to become like that! No way! NO WAAAAAAAAY!!!!
Rei: Reprise. A Scene on a Certain Day.
Makoto: Rei and Nagisa… aren’t coming back at all…
Haruka: Just a bit more and they’ll be co—
Makoto: I… I wonder if Rei’s alright…
Haruka: Who knows…
Gou: I do feel sorry for him…
Makoto: Well, it’s certainly normal within Olympic players to shave to decrease resistance in water but I wonder if that’s the norm within high schoolers…
Haruka: Who knows…
Gou: Ah, my oniichan shaves…
