Two things I'd like to say before I start this review. First, I don't believe anime should be judged by their fanbase as they have nothing to do with the show itself. It's not like whoever produced the show asked their fans to ship characters etc. Second, I believe in objective reviews, which is why it pisses me off that so many of the top reviews on this site are just memes but doesn't say if the show is actually good or not. If I wanted meme reviews I would just go to gigguk's channel as he does them far better than people here.

Overall, I read more

The highly anticipated third season of Free! is here and better than ever!! With all our old favorites, and new characters, the plot is more dramatic than ever. Now that Haru, Makoto, Rin, and Souske have graduated, we get to see what their future holds and what the future has in store for the swim club without their older members.

Dive to the future is my favorite season so far. With a perfect mix of humor, drama, and swimming it takes everything to a new level. Obviously, if you are new to the series watch the first two seasons, Starting days, and Take your marks first. read more

Okay, so bear in mind that this review has been written with only 4 episodes out, so maybe by the end of the season I've changed my mind. So far, though, I have to say that everything about this first episode makes me think that Free!: Dive to the Future will be amazing, and exactly what the fans of the anime would expect (this is definitely a compliment) and had been hoping for.

We get to see our main characters back in action but this time all grown up and in a different context (which I think is pretty great, as we rarely get to read more

it's pretty damn good. there's a lot of plotlines weaving in and out of each other, really trying to have a plot for all the different characters in the cast (the older ones, and several new ones as well) - so far, it's prevented any feelings of repetition, as one would worry there may be considering just how strongly focused on swimming most of the characters are, but i would say there are times like it feels it's going too fast, and the scenes switch too quickly. (or maybe i just wish there could be more than 12 episodes)

i'm presuming that they had a massive read more
