Free! Iwatobi Swim Club

Free! Eternal Summer

Synopsis

Haruka Nanase has a love for water and a passion for swimming. In elementary school, he competed in and won a relay race with his three friends Rin Matsuoka, Nagisa Hazuki, and Makoto Tachibana. After claiming victory at the tournament, the four friends went their separate ways. Years later, they reunite as high school students; however, Rin couldn’t care less about returning to the way things used to be. Not only does he attend a different school, but the sole thing important to him is proving that he is a better swimmer than Haruka.

After the bitter reunion, Haruka, Nagisa, and Makoto decide to form the Iwatobi High School Swim Club, but they will need a fourth member if they hope to take part in the upcoming tournament. Enter Rei Ryuugazaki, a former member of the track team whom Nagisa recruits. As the time to compete draws near, the four develop a close bond while training intensely to come out on top and settle things between Haruka and Rin once and for all.

**
The Iwatobi Swim Club returns! As their third year begins, Haruka, Makoto and Rin are still swimming strong, but choosing plans for their futures loom, and as friends both new and old make their way into the picture, rivalries will take root once again. Will the team make it out stronger than before or sink under pressure?


What is Free! to me? Free! is a bunch of good-looking dude showing off the perfect body in the water.

Another sport anime, but this series different from the other sport anime cause we are not only witnessing the struggle of the different character during their competition, but also in their everyday life, unlike other sport anime, like Kuroko no Basuke and Haikyuu!!, where the focus of the anime is on the sport itself. It is true the first season is centered on the swimming competition, but we can’t tell the same for the second season.

The series have a whole bunch of interesting character with the very own personality. Some are borderline annoying, like Aiichirou Nitori, but still tolerable. My favorite is Matsuoka Rin, he is so easy to read. He try to look all though, but deep inside he care about he old team-mate. He is a precious little shark. Another character who I grow to like, special thanks to the OVA of Eternal Summer for that, is Yamazaki Sosuke. Although I wasn’t really sure cause of the way he was with Nanase, I came to like him more upon realizing that he actually put the future of Rin before his. That what we call deep friendship.

I really enjoyed this series, not only cause of we get the chance to see the character half-naked for the most part of it, but also cause it show the meaning of friendship.
