Oh no! Please god, you cannot do this to me. Please don’t let the Japanese create any more of this boy-love crap. How the hell am I supposed to enjoy something like this when only the gayest of all boy-love scenes could be waiting around each and every corner?

Free!The artwork, and please keep in mind that I say this with pain in my heart, is great. They really, really focussed on the boys’ bodies (a lot). It’s almost like they wanted to give us a biology lesson by showing us all those muscles and bulges. Oh god…

The story looks pretty darn interesting as well. I’m actually looking forward to see how this turns out, although I probably won’t be writing about this show. Can you imagine someone reading twelve weeks’ worth of reviews by some nerd that’s somewhat afraid of the gay agenda? I think not.

The most surprising about this review might actually be the fact that I do actually recommend this show. I’m a big fan of the sports genre myself, plus I like the story so far. I’d be a fool if I didn’t honestly say that this looks like it’s something worth watching.

Plot Summary: The story revolves around Haruka Nanase, a boy who has 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, Nagisa 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 Haruka to a match, showing Haruka his overwhelming power. Not wanting it to end like this, Haruka, gathers together Makoto and Nagisa once again and brings a new member named Rei Ryugazaki to create the Iwatobi High School Swimming Club in order to defeat Rin.
