Free! Iwatobi Swim Club is an enjoyable sports anime that adds a twist to the swimming pool.

Free! stems from the short light manga High☆Speed! The anime revolves around the lives of four boys—Haruka, Makoto, Nagisa and Rin, who are all members of their high school’s swimming team. Haruka, Rin, Makoto, and Nagisa were members of the same swimming club in elementary school before parting ways, with Rin moving to Australia.

Free! is set years later with the boys now in high school. Rin, who always had a stronger relationship with Haruka, arrives back from Australia with a scornful attitude and upon reuniting with his old swimming pals he challenges Haruka to a race and wins. Haruka, who is discouraged from his loss to Rin is motivated to form the Iwatobi High School Swimming Club along with Makoto, Nagisa and then later on Rei, who was initially a member of the school’s’ track team. Rin, meanwhile, joins the swim team at Samezuka Academy, a swimming powerhouse.

The boys work to make it to the finals so Haruka and Rin can finally have the chance to face off again.

I definitely enjoyed watching Free! very much, it will always be one of my favorite anime to watch. Free! initially aired on July 3, 2013. The series went on to air a second season entitled Free! Eternal Summer that ended on September of 2014 and a movie revolved around the light manga High ☆ Speed entitled High☆Speed! – Free! Starting Days.

Fans are still anxiously waiting on the announcement of a third season to the series.
