And so, I did a marathon of the anime over the past few days:

  • Free! Iwatobi Swim Club (Season 1)
  • Free! Eternal Summer (Season 2)
  • Free! Dive to the Future (Season 3)
  • Free! -Timeless Medley- 絆
  • Free! -Timeless Medley- 約束
  • High Speed! Free! Starting Days
  • Free! Take Your Marks

I’ve been wanting to watch this series for a while. I was attracted to the drawing of Haru on the goods and poster of the Kizuna movie that I chanced upon in a theatre in Kawaguchi last year. Somehow it reminded me of Hyouka’s Oreki Houtarou. Of course, I found out later that they were created by the same Kyoto Animation. I even took this leaflet back home then~

I’m also attracted to characters like Rin and Ikuya (and I think Gou is cute too~), but yappari my heart still beats for Haru. As the story progresses, I get more and more attracted to him, even the way he flicks his hair when he takes off his swim cap after a race fufu~

The flashbacks in the movies are lovely too. It’s nice to see the stories of chibi Haru and Rin~ I’m not into BL, but if I have to choose a ship here, it’s definitely Haru x Rin ne =P

We have to wait till 2020 before we get season 4 ne. But better late than never.
