The 2nd episode blew the first way out of the water in terms of a hook. Way more balanced, great character building...a great mix of emotions.

I was able to connect with the guys on a more realistic level than after episode 1. The female characters, 松岡ちゃんとあませんせい really helped give the show a little bit more gender balance. Making it feel more like a show instead of a muscle circus. While I understand that the hot dudes are an element of the show, I'm hoping it aims more to be a good show overall, then just being known for the hot dudes. This episode brightened my hopes.

If the show keeps up like this it will no doubt be one of my favorites of the season.

LOVED this episode! I'm so glad Gou turned out not to be as annoying as I thought she was going to be. I'm so sad this is going to be only 12 episodes long. I'm already obsessed with the characters and I'm going to hate having to say goodbye to them. My favorite is Haruka but that might change in the future. This episode was filled with so many laugh out loud moments! So far I'm loving this show. Can't wait for the next episode.

So far , its developing very well.

The writting is really well done. Really concentrating on the characters and the conflict. Animation is superb. Each character is really well defined. The voice acting is very very nice...I love Mamuro amgsty side I always want him in a more serius role.

Kou chan is funny on how she get googly eye on those triceps and not the biceps , I want those myself lol since I am starting to lose definition myself lol....must go back swimming !!! .

And I agree her character changed the dynamics of the anime and in a good way.

All these feels from watching Free!:

''I see. So that's why Haru quit swimming competitively.
It's because he hurt Rin.''

Not only is Haru a great swimmer, he can also cook, paint, and carve up cute wooden figures! He has such great control with his hands

lol ...

I like the cooking part ,I like guys who can cook and those squid looks yummy to me lol but it seems he is on his own most of the time.

Also Haru doesnt talk much. I can relate to that. When I was in elementary up to early college years., I never talked about my feelings or stuff as a matter of fact. I was very observant and is affected by what other feels. So to me Haru's character is very real in that sense and I almost did a lot on my own except for cooking, laundry and house work. Somebody did that for me

Free! is already picking up the pace. I'm loving where it's going <3 eye candy aside, it has a really good plot so far. If this show was an all female cast, it'd be higher rated and more widely accepted by people (mostly males) imo. People are too judgey Ho well. More Makoto for meeeee

Omg, I know what you mean about Kou. I was sooo happy she wasn't all like "Kyaaah" when she saw Haru in his swimsuit. I mean she did go "Kyahh", but not for the typical annoying anime girl reason. I was so hoping they wouldn't go the route of her blushing and screaming every time she saw a half-naked man, always ordering him to put on clothes. Heaven forbid she whip out a giant paper fan and hit them over the head with it for "walking around naked". Anyways, I'm glad they made her a level headed teenage girl who can admire a hot dude and take a compliment from a guy with a "thank you" and not some mega-blush, speechless overreaction.

I don't get why everyone is all uptight about the fanservice in this series. They're a swim team. What are they suppose to wear? If it WAS all about the fanservice why not just put all the guys in speedos?

Here, put the whole team in these and then maybe everyone will stop making such a big deal about the fanservice. lol

Don't worry, I'm not.

There was just a generally unrelated subdiscussion about fanservice going on. Nothing in Free! bothers me.

gonna start off by saying i have yet to see this anime, sport anime arent my thing. but everything ive heard about it seems to be fairly good and popular(minus the hater/trolls) while i probly wont ever see an episode for it, i have to say it certainly looks/sounds to have potential from the credible sources ive heard/read. more power to it.

sounds like theres some attempt of depth to the characters and the story will definitely involve more fan service, but who doesnt like a good fan service anime every now and then.
