Free! - Review

Genre: Sports / Slice of Life
No. of episodes: 12
My Rate: 9/10

Water, half-naked boys and good plot? It seems impossible yet I think it came out very good. The story is very interesting and also the times when they compete with others was so exciting! Even though sometimes I see the characters as 'gay' XD I feel like I extremely enjoyed watching the series and especially their friendship and team work!! However it seems like the target audience for this is girls. Well 'gay' boys in swimming suits with abs :D not really a target for boys.......

A group of boys; Haruka Nanase, Nagisa Hazuki and Makoto Tachibana were participating in a Iwatobi swimming club in their primary school. A transfer student Rin Matsuoka joined their class and the same club and become their friend. After winning the tournament Rin went to train in Australia and other boys separated and do what they want to do. So the story settles when they attend Highschool. Haru quitted competitive swimming for unknown reason and always repeats "I swim free", however Nagisa came out with an idea to open up a swimming club and swim togather again. At the same time they see Rin who came back from Australia but he changed........... Does the club will be a success and Haru will want to join it? What happened to Haru and Rin?


 Note: Characters introduced are not gay but they may seem like it as a result of their behaviour overall and actions towards their guy-friends. I'm not intending to offend anything or anyone :)
