So when I first watched this I was with my best friend. In the end I ended up really loving this anime. Not, because it’s fan service for girls. It was the story that I really liked and recently I watched the movie. It was so good and it really struck me and my heart strings. At the end I almost cried. It is so rare for me to cry when I am watching anime or a movie. The anime or movie really has to move me and speak to me. I can guarantee that this anime and it’s movie moved me. The story is based around Haruka Nanase (aka Haru), a boy who always loved to be immersed in water, and to swim in it. Before graduating from elementary school, he participated in a swimming tournament along with his fellow swimming club members, Makoto, Tachibana, Nagise Hazuki, and Rin Matsuoka. After achieving victory, each of the boys went their separate ways.
Time passed, and in the middle of their uneventful high school lives Rin appears and challenges Haru to a match, showing Haru his overwhelming power. Not wanting it to end like this, Haru, gathers together Makoto and Nagise once again and brings a new member named Rei Ryugazaki to create the Iwatobi High School Swimming Club in order to defeat Rin. With that being said Free! was amazing and it really moved me. Now I have heard of a new series that is out and it’s based on boy cheerleading. I haven’t seen it yet so I can’t give it a review. If it can hold a flame to Free! then it will get a good recommendation from me. This hands down has gotten my highest recommendation. That’s is something that doesn’t happen very often. Alright I think we are good here. Until my next blog post keep watching anime and stay cool. Also keep swimming Free!
