Boom. Fear of the primal mother earth based on a story related to him accomplished. Was that so hard?

Lay off my posts, mod. If you're going to edit my posts, do it properly so I don't have to fix your mess.

Well that just happened in episode 6. But let's be realistic here if he had nearly drowned as a kid, he probably would have had a VERY severe case of aquaphobia that would have prevented him from swimming at all! He needed to be afraid but not so afraid that he never got in the water ever again. The back story he has accomplishes this nicely. What you describing needs years of therapy to fix, not just a look at Haru's face.

I won't lie. I was kind of hoping Nagisa would drown... I knew it wouldn't happen and I know he's an important character with an important purpose but he's too energetic for me. It's like "lay off the sugar dude!"

Yeah, you're just spit balling.

It's perfectly normal to assume that such a thing might create a specific fear of the ocean as opposed to just all water in general, he would have no reason to fear swimming in a pool should he have had a traumatic experience completely related to things that can only happen in the ocean. He's emotionally scarred, not mentally retarded.

Say what?!!!!!! no my nagisa-chan no no no no no.

But if I'm allowed to do the same and mention that I was wishing that Haru would die (would have chosen Rin but he wasn't there with them). He's just too MEH. for me....tsk tsk but I'm glad no one died^^ especially my cutie pie!

Just because I don't like to see this thread sooo behind and almost forgotten... I got my shirt a few weeks ago, I wish I could get a Nagisa shirt only. Seriously, this character tugged at my heart in ways I can't even comprehend(so cheesy XD)... I just feel happy when I see him and I would probably wouldn't like this anime as much if he wasn't one of the main characters. Funny thing is that when I watched the mini 'trailer' that went viral in youtube before the anime was known and we would refer to it as 'the swimming anime', the character I liked the least was Nagisa and Rin caught my attention along with Haru but they turned out to be my least characters and Nagisa is now my favorite along with Rei-chan XD... ok, I feel weird talking nonsense... don't let this thread die!

The same thing happened to me XD Rin and Haru are the ones who at first look catch more attention, and I thought Makoto and Nagisa were the least interesting ones. Now that I'm watching the show and getting to know the characters (also looking at them more accurately) I can say that Haru and Rin are not that great after all, and my favourite is definitely Mako-chan <3 Nagisa is the funniest (last episode's penguin impression was pure gold XD).

Weekly sales, of course Free!'s OP, ED and both character songs ranked again

This is amazing let's hope it keeps up.

Oh my , that pic in the end is great !!!

But I was cracking up at Gou....cant blame her for admiring the multitude of trim and well developed muscles for swimming

I really liked that part when Rin opened up to his roomate and kouhai. And listening to why he really wanted to beat Haru chan made me understand Rin a little and it made me root for him instead of Haru. .

Good thing they switched the writting more on Rin this time around becuase nothing much was revealed about this particular obssession of his up until this epiosde.
Makoto character is getting developed a lot in the past episodes , that made me wonder about the others, glad they wrote more about Rin. I really like Mamuro san delivery of his lines as Rin when the scenes calls for more realistic emotions. I prefer him in more serious characters, his acting skills shines thru .
