I kind of hope we get to see Gou swim, as it would be nice for her to have just as much skill as the guys. I was a bit sad that she couldn't/didn't swim with them in this week.

Sorry, dudes, the Free! guys got an official seal of "they seem like guys to me" from my brother, who is obviously the most manly guy ever. No more point in discussing it.

No point in arguing over how girly the guys act now that Musouka's brother gave his verdict.

That aside, they did seem to ramp up the gay in this episode. So far I think Haruka is the only one who didn't have a massively gay moment. I'm talking about those "Dude, are you hitting on me?" moments, like the one with Blondie and Megane. Doesn't help that they show 0 interest in girls, only MAH-SULS.

The main thing I'm curious about is still how exactly they intend to make swimming look exciting.

they chose an exciting event to run. the 400 IM relay is one of the most exciting events in swimming.

Close-ups of the swimmers cutting through the pool like torpedoes in the water as the water gets displaced by each stroke and kick while at the same time accentuating the way the muscles contract and expand in perfect rhythm.... that should keep the girls happy and make the guys wanna take a dip after seeing it.

Personally I find swimming to be very fun to watch because it is so straightforward and pretty. Other sports like baseball and soccer have so many rules/positions that I get confused and distracted.
I am actually really enjoying Free! so far, especially in regards to the character dynamics and swimming animation. I do not find it really 'fanservicey' because it's....swimming. What are they supposed to do, swim in thick wool sweaters and jeans? XD
Also I think it's as 'gay' as K-on! is 'yuri'...it's just how you interpret the character interactions.

Anyhoo, the belly flop really caught me off guard. I really thought he would be able to pull it off, haha. That...probably hurt quite a bit o_o I've been told that belly flopping is like hitting a solid ground. (Edit: On second thought never mind, it was a pretty short fall so he should be fine)

Could anybody translate this please? It seems interesting, and perhaps relevant to past discussions.

Rough summary:

1. (on the charms of the quiet Haruka) They were having trouble with how the he would move/act. Then they realized that by thinking of him as "heroine", determining his actions became a lot easier.

2. Yokotani Masahiro (series composition) thinks Gou and Ama-chan sensei weren't written to be very "girly" and are more designed to be "female characters that girls would like".

Rei brought some good comedy to the third episode with his two sudden pratfalls. Funny stuff.

The overall pacing for the anime is good so far. The story isn't overly complicated, but it has enough depth to maintain interest.

Welp, ReiXNagisa pretty much official. Like sure Rei seems to be very interested in Haruka, but I think he's pretty much 'taken' by Rin already.

So that leaves MakoXGou?

As long as you're a nice guy with excellent muscle definition, you probably have a good chance with Gou.

So MakoXGou would work, yeah.

Really? Gou and Ama-sensei seem pretty feminine to me. True they aren't all "girly girl" but that's not normal... at least not in the USA. I guess Japan does have a more "cutesy" thing for the way girls are supposed to act around boys. Maybe that's what she's referring to.

As for the guys, I think they all act like guys, just with their various oddities. Except occasionally for Nagisa.

Are there guys I've know who act like him? Yes. Are there straight guys I've known that act like him? Yes.

Still falls outside the normal boundaries for high school boys to behave. On the other hand, he is younger. If he was in middle school... a first year in middle school. Then he'd be about right. First year in high school... possible, but not normal.

Haruka's charm is sh... er... he is a cool beauty whose head is currently filled with nothing but the very wet and large pool of standing water. So that's why Rei's chance of hooking up with Haruka is just as much as Rin, probably even more. While Rin is busy assuming the role of lone-wolf bad ass with superb hairdo and dismissive facial expression, Rei can win over Haruka by devoting all of his attention toward Haruka's magnificence. And beside, if it ever comes to duking it out between Rei and Rin over Haruka, I think Rei's got the advantage by the virtue of he's equipped with a bigger pole.

I must also observe that the lack of shipping in this thread is disconcerting. As a mod, I'm disappointed that I'm not breaking out fights and banning people in every other page.

Actually I still ship GouxNagisia. To me Rei and Nagisa seem more "best friend" status. As for Makoto, he's such a mother hen over everyone that I can't really pin him down to one person yet. I would put him with Haruka, if as you said, he wasn't "taken"already. And even then, I would put Haru and Mako in the same "best friend" status as Rei and Nagisa.

I would ship Haruka x Makoto and Nagisa x Rei. Gou could go with her brother's team captain.
