As a personal appreciation, I can say that I loved the presence of Kisumi, there just to greet his friends and found himself involved in their adorable ...

This is how you do slice of life comedy right. The Iwatobi team goes to Samezuka's school for the Samezuka culture festival despite Rin warning them not to come. We quickly find out why.

Oh, my goodness, this may be the best episode of Free! I almost made it out without tearing up, too.

This episode is Makoto, Haru, Nagisa, Rei, Rin, Souske, Ai, and Momo battling each other in a water gun war. It's so cool? Let me explain. First of all, everyone is acting like a damn assassin, which is badass. And when they get "shot" ...

Nothing gets the blood pumping like a high-intensity race, be it in a car, bike, or even mecha suit. Youthful passion and energy fuel these shows about drivers, pilots and athletes all striving for that #1 spot. As Ricky Bobby once famously said, "If you ain't first, you're last".
