Then it's settled: we should sacrifice a mackerel in honor of Haru-chan-san.



Shouldn't it be a dolphin to ensure Haru-chan's stay?

The stuff Animate is offering looks so adorable.

There's a Drama CD and I'm guessing something to do with the radio show? But the art is very cute.




Rin is side glancin' Haru and Makoto, ha.

Anyway, the Spoon.2Di poster is scanned and out, I'll post that later since limited to two pictures a post.


Drama CD


Iwatobi Channel v.1


I'm sure CDJapan will offer these, so you can purchase stuff there if interested..

I love how in both of those pictures, Rin looks like he's pouting at Haru and Makoto!

Oh here's a question for everyone: what's your favorite joke in the series so far? What I love about this show is how there's a surprising amount of self-aware humor. It's very silly but not in spite of itself, you know?

I don't have the screencap of the actual scene but I was laughing so hard when Rin said, "You can tell by looking at their bodies...they haven't been working out." Something about that was so ridiculous. I was like "In what steroid-fueled universe are guys like Haru and Makoto considered out-of-shape?!"

Anyway, I'm pretty sure Makoto is actually in better shape than Rin. At least if we're judging by how a swimmer's body should be (big shoulders are a huge plus.)

No new episode today.

It's some sort of live special. Next week's the new episode.

Some info about the tracks on the Drama CD.
You can find these by the link in my post about the Drama CD.

≪収録内容≫
01. とある日常の一コマ
02. 水着開発
03. もし彼氏にするなら? ~岩鳶編~
04. もし彼氏にするなら? ~鮫柄編~
05. 合宿
06. 渚と遙の出逢いの思い出
07. 鮫柄学園文化祭 ~伝統の冥土喫茶~

I only have a rough translation for a few.
03. What if you were my boyfriend? ~Iwatobi side~
04. What if you were my boyfriend? ~Samezuka side~
07. Is either referring to a maid cafe/cafe, but it takes place at Samezuka

You're welcome to run it through google translate, like I did, but I don't exactly trust google translate too much.
I got these from some translators though.

and here's the scanned Spoon.2Di cover with I believe one of the posters from Pash.
They're a little large, so under a spoiler.

Haru's random stripping when there's water is probably my favorite joke so far.
The Gou admiring muscles thing is getting a little old for me, I hope she gets a new joke soon.
It seems that her back and forth with Nagisa is over now, she seems to have given up. Ahaha. I wouldn't mind more of that.

Those track titles are going to be like pissing gasoline into every Free! shipper's fire. I wonder what that whole boyfriend thing is about anyway?

I admit that when I first saw that scene, all I could think about was how close they were to bumping heads.


So even though we had to go a week without Free!, we can still keep the discussion up. How about we post who our favorite characters are so far?

Rin has been my favorite so far. Granted my reasons are shallow because I mean, come on: just look at him. But his grumpiness is great and who can resist a tragic back-story?

Also he has shark teeth. That is cool.

Alright, here's a question for y'all, I saw part of episode one and I gotta ask this: is it just a bunch of pretty boys with a lot of pretty water, or is there actually a story?

There actually is a semblance of a plot happening! There are a lot of questions raised about the two rivals: Haru and Rin. So far the pacing has been great and the characters are actually very like-able. As I said earlier, there is a ton of humor in this show. It's as though the creators knows that this is a very silly show so they embrace that fact.

Free!'s tagline almost needs to be: Come for the wet abs, stay for the meta-humor.

Also, "a bunch of pretty boys with a bunch of pretty water" would be an excellent tagline too because it is also all of those things. But again, the creators are aware of this so it becomes a very camp ride.

A plot , there is .

This anime is actually well written so far inspite of all the gayness it is showing . Basically all about friendship and rivalry, well kinda one sided though ,but the characters got some depth too

We actually showed this anime at our club , introducing to a lot of guys and they sure got the comedy behind it and had fun watching episode 1 and 2 , it was the highlight of the night

I actually think thats kinda cool, and great too xD

My parents sacrificed a fish for dinner last night and theyre doing it again saturdau, i find that funny with the talk of sacrifing fishies in memory of no free episode lol!

Hmm favorite character so far.... Has to be Haru and Rei, i love haru's indifference to almost everything and how he's like "too troublesome" and so one xD he's funny.
Rei because.. He's so serious it's funny. Rei and Haru by far my favorites so far ^^

LOL
The first reason seems legit XD

I'm watching this because of the great character development. I don't watch it just because of the fanservice or hot guys since I've dropped a lot of animes with hot guys just because the characters didn't appeal to me (like K project, kyou kara mao) or for the lack of plot ( saint beast)

Free! is different and I love it. I see this like a slice of life anime so bonding with a character is important to me, so far I like all of them. My favorite character is Nagisa! which is weird for me because I usually dislike the characters like him who are always happy and overly friendly ( like Momiji from fruits basquet and honey-sempai from Ouran High school club) but Nagisa makes me happy every time I see him, he's funny, friendly, sweet and just plain adorable. He is definitely my favorite character ^^
