I'm so addicted to this anime. I hope there will be a second season of Free!. It's really a good anime and the characters are enjoyable.

I am actually nervous about the ending of Free! The internet rumour out there about how the series is going to end make me uncomfortable and I think I might absolutely loath the ending. But hopefully the internet rumours are groundless and the actual ending to free is solid and good.

That's troublesome but you have me curious: what is the rumored ending? (You can put it in spoiler tags if you want.)

I would like to know what it is that you heard and where it is that you heard it? If that's alright.

See, the only ending scenario that could make me hate the series is maybe if something horrible and tragic happens. It would seem to come way out of left field in a show that's been upbeat and fun. Even the more dramatic moments aren't that devastating or sad. A tear-jerker, this show is not.

So unless Rin decides to kill himself by the series's end, I can't see how this show will end badly.

Well I got scolded before for linking stuff but I think this should be okay. So http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=oGnqfEwUXvU is the link the interview by the VA of Haru and Makoto. It was translated by the Fencer-x @ Tumbler and translation is in the spoiler box below.



The stuff the VAs said might indicate that Rin transfers to Iwatobi at the end of Free! Which I don't mind as an ending but other people are speculating that Haru, Makoto, Rei and Nagisa might sabotage themselves in the relay finals by letting Rin swim with them instead of Rei. This would lead to instant disqualification and from my perspective, horrible consequences for Team Iwatobi and the end of their swim club because their school would be embarressed and in the very least, will cut their funding to next to nothing. However, some people think this is a GOOD ending and "fitting" with the shows themes. When I questioned this I was told that they had heard from a source (no links or anything just the vague "source") that Iwatobi's results in the relay finals was "embarrassing" and getting disqualified would be embarrassing.

Now if after all that build-up and junk, Free! ends with Haru, Makoto, Rei and Nagisa doing something utterly short sighted and stupid just to make Rin feel better, I would be highly, highly insulted. But in theory, the prediction that the boys might sabotage themselves does fit in with the whole five person relay team thing the VAs are talking about. But it all hinges on the contention that Rin is going to get thrown out of the Samezuka relay team because of his attitude and thus can't swim with the Iwatobi boys and so the Iwatobi boys will decide for the sake of friendship, they will sabotage themselves or something... IMO no, just no! That's a cope out ending and a terrible idea no matter how you look at it. So I hope it doesn't happen.


Edit: And Rin get's dropped from the relay team... still think that if Iwatobi boys sabotage themselves to make Rin feel better, it would be the biggest load of crap ever! But whatever. Free! wouldn't be the first anime to have an ending I didn't like.

Episode 11

Damn, that was harsh at the ending there. The episode was kinda meh to me, felt more like a setup to the finale. I wonder who will win though...as I am sure there will be a rematch or at least hoping so.

Episode 11 was probably one of the best episodes of Free! There was just so many feels throughout this entire episode and I'm sure episode 12 will be the same, if not more!!! I especially loved the part when they played the soundtrack they used in the pv (not sure what the track is called ^^") it's my favorite track of Free!

I seriously can't wait until the final episode!!!!

Honestly, this show has been quite a surprise to me. I didn't pick it up at the beginning of the season because I was scared off by all the fanservice talk, but it's actually turned into something fairly substantial and believable.

And we all know the animation is good.

I, for one, will be looking forward to the final episode.

mmm Its a set-up till the end...

I really like the dramatic scene , both seiyuu made it sound very real., love it.2 thumbs up on the voice acting.

I am curious too how they will end this but I am speculating its most likely be an open ended becuase with the popularity of this title it would be a marketing disaster to conclude this one at 12. from the ways the seiyuu were discussing , it seem to be one of those with potential for further story telling.

I really enjoy watching this title , its been fun , got me excited to get back into swimming and practice like Rei chan since my kick is pretty weak too and everytime I go swimming , I think about this anime a lot

Cant wait for 12 ...

Did anyone licensed Free for distribution ?

Episode 11
Loved that scene where Rei was yelling at Rin.Rei's seiyuu did a great job during that scene.Actually thought the scene was hot as well .

Everyone was worried about Rei so they visit him.


Haruka losing moisture nearly killed him,lol.

Rin talks with Rei and explains why he nearly quit swimming.

Rin is out of the relay.Wonder how he'll convince the captain to let him back in it cause we know he will be participating in it?

One episode left,really hoping for a second season.Gonna miss my weekly dose of homoerotic swim .

Episode 11 actually wasn't that bad
I started losing interest in this anime until I watched this episode haha~
It's good to finally know the reason why Rin acted that cold towards his teammates. If it was only because he lost to Haru that would be really lame.

And that melon breads looked really really good
