[AOW] FREE! (8/4-10/2013)

[previous AOWs] [Akia's MAL page]

There is something about this anime that pulls at my fujoshi heart (though I don't like boys love at all... oh and I'm pretty sure this isn't a BL anime anyways).... much like how 07-Ghost did when it was airing on Japanese airways. I don't know what it is about this anime that keeps me wanting to see more of these boys swimming and interacting... it could be the awesome balance of character types, the fantastic op/ed, the super duper crisp art work or just the fact that this show was made because fans wanted it which rarely happens with anime. This one was pretty much petitioned to be made!

Type: Original Series
Genre(s): Comedy, School, Sports, Slice of Life
 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.
