Rin didn't piss me off this time. Actually.....HOW THE FUCK DID I LIKE RIN THE MOST IN THIS EPISODE?!


However, Sousuke = Rin 2.0


Oh, Rei, my fabulous megane butterfly....... Haru didn't seem as......Haru as he was last year.


Anyway, the schtick was old, but hell, the cast feels like old friends at this point so I"m in.

The ED song sucks though though much appreciate the gif of Rin shaking his ass like he's on the set of Anime Magic Mike....

Very good first episode. I liked how frenzied, fun, fast-paced it was. It felt very energetic and quickly immersive, appropriately like a kid diving into the deep end of a pool.

The show's energy and quick pace was also helpful to the comedy, where the rapid timing of jokes and sight gags and loud character reactions is a lot of what makes the chuckles and laughs come.

On the whole, a great way to kick off Season 2, and remind viewers of what they liked about Season 1.

While it's good to see mellowed-out Rin, I also differ with some viewers in that I'm glad to see a new character introduced who looks to add some drama and edge to the show.

Rin himself shows it's not that hard to turn a "bad boy" into a likeable good guy, and I'm fairly confident that the same will eventually happen with the new character. In the interim, the new character will add a bit of edge, intensity, and weight to the show that it would be sadly lacking if everybody was on completely good terms with one another.

Going to wait until we meet the presumably-really-hardcore new guy to decide whether mellowing out Rin is really working out.

Nice to see the boys back again, and everyone being bro's. I'm also glad about the introduction of a new character. Nothing beats some good old fashioned rivalry.
And nice we another crazy ED: merman Haru

Free! is always enjoyable to me. It's light and easy to watch. This time it looks like Haru has another stalker and Makoto has a new rival. ED is great. (I'm sure they feel the pressure to create a better ED than last season.) Will try to follow this.

That ending is gold.
That pelvic thrust is already legend.

Makoto as a firefighter is everything I never dare dream of. I hope for a porno/gay calendar with cops and firefighters

I'm sitting over here, eagerly awaiting the Chicago Fire/PD crossover I hope will show up. (Someone on tumblr says that Rin's movements match up to his swimming style, anyone with experience can confirm?)

And I'm loving how Rin is now, but with that OP, I can't help but to wonder if he wont be scouted or his team might end up falling apart before they get far enough into the tournament. Angry!Haru also makes me think that his competitive spirit will awaken as a response to a friend/ship being insulted/degraded (or he's frustrated as he starts falling behind as he nears "normal" [remember: Kids are prodigies, teens are geniuses and adults are average?] due to being wishy-washy and older).

Meanwhile, I think with no new swimmers in Iwatobi, Rei might be lured back to his previous club for next year, while Nagisa cries in solitude.

Oh yeah...anybody think that sousuke attitude,eyes when standing in front of the class is like jotaro...

I wonder if he will get a similar personality (when facing other than rin)

It's the return of the apron swimsuit, the sight that opened my eyes to another world out there.

I seriously think they dumbed down Gou's figure to piss us male viewers.

Say, I wonder if the ending theme is better than the first 'cause I feel that "Splash Free" is effin' catchy!

Looking at Sousuke, he seems to be the new source of drama for our guys. From the way we see him in the opening as well as the preview, Sousuke seems to be friendly and comfortable with Rin, yet he seems pretty antagonistic towards Haru. Haru doesn't seem the type to go make enemies, so what's Sousuke's beef with him?

I know he shows up in the LNs, but I don't like to read those before watching, so I guess I'll have to go into this blind.

Maybe it's something like Rin left him behind when he left Australia, caught up with Haru and is having fun with Haru and not him. Didn't write to him much either. So he's pissed. If Rin did not step foot into Tokyo, then he must have met Sousuke in Australia imo.

Maybe this is the "Rin has to take responsibility for his past actions" season.

I know some people thought that perhaps Sousuke and Rin met in Australia, but we see a small split-second clip of all three of them as kids in the preview for the next episode, so they did meet before that. However, none of the boys have ever mentioned this guy thus far as being in their circle of friends. Yet, if I remember right, Rin was the new guy who moved into Haru and Makoto's school. Could it be that Sousuke knew him before Rin moved and was jealous of being pushed over for Haru?

Well, Rin did move to that school to beat Haru in swimming. He prob forgot to write to Sousuke and he's pretty pissed enough to transfer to Rin's school. Maybe he want to beat Rin and Haru in swimming.
