This takes place after Free: Take your marks and is the prequel episode to Season 3 of Free: Dive to the Future.

Story, sound, enjoyment - 8/10

Summer is over and everyone is now transitioning to the new season of their lives. 2 characters from Free Starting Days (when Haru was in the middle school swimming club) show up.

It was an more hilarious episode than usually, and you can feel the emotions of everyone about the new start that they all are living , it brings you the sensation that something big its coming. In this special like in the previous movie "Take your marks" the element of funny confussions and coincidence again as ingredient,was perfect!
It really deserves your chance, the ED was the best of all! Hope to see more sexy's dance of the boys like this!

MUSIC: Like I said, the ending was the best of the OST that they used it here to me. As well, the sounds read more
