I wouldve preferred if he would simply advance and running towards the top instead of being concerned about anything.
This would make Harus awakening more exciting.

About the anime itself, of course this anime is more fanservice for gals and swimming is more like a sorry excuse of a plot for showing biceps and triceps.
While I dont mind that girls get fanservice I still hoped that the focus would be about the sport like detailed techniques, warm ups, breathing methods and overall infos even related to real life swimmers.
Still as a slice of life anime its really impressive and well written though you cant avoid the "bromance" hints.
You forgot trapezius and latissimus dorsi. Makoto's back's is well defined.

As it should be for someone whose swimming specialty is the backstroke. Speaking of Makoto's backstroke, did anyone else think the sound effect used to underscore Rin's analysis of Makoto's stroke sounded like windshield wipers?

about the full version of Rage On, i think misheard the first lyrics as "there is confusion in Free! going through my head" & it seems legit

Doesn't surprise me in the least. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised to learn that doujin started showing up after that very first video clip before there was a show announcement. Never underestimate the powers of enthusiastic fan artists.

On a slightly different note, does anyone else fear that we won't actually see Haru's race in the next episode? That we'll just hear the results of the tournament but not see any of what happened? It's that darn preview with all the festival clips and Rei's comments about how they're in the middle of the tournament that has me worried. They wouldn't really do that to us, would they??

about the doujins, do they either feature Gou service or typically its just the guys trying to jam eachother's entry & exit hatches with their respective lightsabers?

I hope that will not be the case. After what Haru went through, I want to see him kick arse and the team taste some sweet victory for once.

They could hold off on showing us a full medley race until the regionals as a display of season-ending animation.

I want to see Haru's race too. I'm probably being paranoid for no reason. I'm so used to seeing spoilers in the previews that I get nervous now when they don't contain spoilers.

I was in a Barnes and Noble yesterday and actually overheard someone mention Free!, though not by name. Sadly, I was disappointed by this since it was described as "that gay-ass anime where all they do is swim".

Episode 9 was fun. The sitcom hijinks at the festival were not that original, but were still done well, and Rin's character moment explained quite a bit (in addition to leading to the hook at the very end).

Also, this.
Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

Gou looked so cute in her yukata. Too bad she only had like 30 seconds of screentime at the festival.

This was an all right episode.

I almost felt bad for Rin crying at their old school...but then he acted like an asshole again.

I forgive you, Rei, for being a dumbass and getting you and Makoto nearly drowned....someone was back in full on fabulous form playing detective.
