THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Ah, we get more back story this episode with Rin. Even as a kid, Sousuke seems to have this intimidating presence towards his teammates. I admire Sousuke's training efforts though. That's a lot of time he put into that..

The swimming comp was pretty fast. It was a great way to see Sousuke try in this race! That was pretty close imo.

Everyone's too high level for the main group.

Even if he wants to hide the truth about his shoulder, the red hair guy eventually found out. Then the story about how he got hurt and about being scouted is not true. He got hurt from training too much just to chase him. He almost gave up but that relay with the main group then was the reason he continued despite his shoulder. So he was not a threat to the main guy, but just frustrated about himself. Main guy overheard it, as well as the rest of team.

Both teams are being serious now. That was a heated up relay. Main guy is faster than red hair guy (though it might be few seconds difference)? At least the new guy saw the vision?

Firework and moving on next.

Oh my god, I don't know why do I find this episode so emotional, but I cried. So. Damn. Much.
And last week after watching episode I thought that Rin would cry in this week's episode and surprise surprise.
But still, great episode. Yamazaki :<
Can't wait for next week, especially for Haru's and Sousuke's encounter.

didn't really care that much about that sousuke drama but whatever, the relay was intense! and iwatobi won!~

wonder what the remaining 3 episodes will be about.. guess they will continue the whole question of what the guys want to do in the future.
omg, only 3 weeks left! ;_;

The preview made me hurt my arm >A>
Makoto is probably just going to talk about what he wants to do but still...This fanservice is too much for me...always makes my heart stop...

Episode was nice, Sousuke drama, Rin being a crybaby again and a wonderful medley ralley which was finally won by the iwatobi guys! =D

Best and most heart warming episode so far! 6/5

My favourite character is quitting swimming, I dont want him too. Sousuke!
Yes! I knew he lied about being scouted but I sooooo understand why he didn't tell Rin, lol I was crying before he even said it "I knew you would cry" T_T
Argh! His story really got to me, I get why he carried on swimming even after he hurt his shoulder but all that training, I mean, he could have let it rest a bit and carried with physiotherapy but no, he just had to make it worse.
......

And Rin I guess its only his dream now - I feel bad for him. I'm not sure what Haru is gonna do but I get the feeling he might continue swimming competitively but if it's only because he heard what happened to Sousuke, Ill be annoyed. Do it because you want to Haru!
I really wanted Samezuka to win (for the team!) but even if they did, I doubt they would've been allowed to go Nationals - a draw would have been nice too!

......

Next episode preview = more angst, why KyoAni WHY!

I kind of figured Iwatobi would win in the end. Hmm, seemed a bit obvious especially with an injured Sousuke.

Good episode overall, finally got some more swimming ;)

With an injured Sousuke I don't Rin's team will stand a chance against Haruka's team, which is a rather good thing since I want Iwatobi to win.

So Rin'a at freaking master level at every swimming style it would seem... op...

Dem bromance feelings that Sousuke has...

It was nice to see that Haruka wasn't butthurt anymore and that his attitude changed for the better.

Dem feelings this episode made me cry manly man tears T.T

Sousuke even injured is only slightly slower than Rei... dat nakama power-up XD.

Woohoo, Iwatobi won 1st place and they're going to go to the nationals!!!

Hmm, I wonder if they're going to cover the nationals phase in this season, if not they could always make a 3rd season called Free! Zenkoku-hen XD.

i wanted samezuka to win but it was obvious they would lose due to sousuke's injury.

i hope we get to see some interaction between haru and rin next episode but it will probably focused on makoto's plans for the future even though the preview made it look like makoto's going to confess to haru

This episode was rather dramatic, which is okay tho. I liked it. But I tend to laugh and feel a little awkward when they make it so dramatic, haha.
The sourin moments were nice, and I really like seeing Rin cry. He's so cute. Everytime he does I switch from laughing to "NO RIN DONT CRY U CRYBABY"...
So happy Iwatobi won, I don't really care much about Samezuka as a team.

Next episode looks awesome! Looks like it'll be makoto and haru centered. I want them to talk already gosh!!

A really great episode, full of the power of friendship.

I know why they let Sousuke finish the relay, but realistically, that was a fool thing to do and stupid for Rin to allow as team captain. Your arm and shoulder is used for more than just for swimming, you know. Sousuke was beginning to be restricted in just simple motions like reaching out. Do you really want to risk crippling him for life? Well, thank goodness for the power and miracle that is epic friendship!

Anyway, I'm interested in what Haru took away from this. He and his team are going to the nationals though I really think it was a tie between Iwatobi and Samezuka. However, Sousuke's confession to his team as well as Haru's observation of Rin, has made him rethink things as well.

I have a feeling that after this, there will be a bit of separation between them all. Sousuke will more than likely leave the swimming team, if not the school entirely. Graduation is also approaching as well, which will mean a separation of the Iwatobi team. We shall see where that leads, next week.

But why is Haru trying to punch Makoto? Is Mako finally confronting him regarding his future?

This was a very emotionally satisfying episode, although I kept hoping that Haru and Makoto would somehow talk it out. Seems like they are going to cover that in the next episode. I can already hear all the MakoHaru fangirls screaming.
The cheese was laid on pretty heavily, but since it's Free! I don't really mind. Also, crying Rin made up for a lot. Smiling Sousuke as well. That relay was some intense shit, I was thinking the whole time that someone would somehow mess up. But Iwatobi pulled through and they're going to nationals, which is pretty awesome.

Another intense episode.

I guess it was obvious that Iwatobi won (which also made me really happy) since Sousuke wouldn't be able to swim in the nationals (wouldn't want anyone else replacing him, don't know whether it's even allowed).

Crybaby Rin is also back. Whenever he cries, I cry too, but somehow I didn't this time.

I don't want Free! to end again!!

I still have a feeling that Haru will go pro. Those looks he kept giving the pool, and the way he kept looking wistfully at Rin swimming.

Also, as of right now, only Rin is assured to be going pro. And we know from last season that Rin kind of falls apart when he's trying to go professional swimming by himself and that he needs his friends (specifically Haru) close to keep him on track. So, I have a feeling that Rin won't be alone when heading to the college-level swimming arena.

By looking at the preview of episode 11, I really hope that Sousuke isnt going to transfer again.

And if Sousuke is really going to give up swimming, then can we atleast give him Gou that way everyones happy? =D ..... No? .... Yes? ...... Maybe? ....

And I really miss that former captain from Rin's school. He's a true leader.

I felt really sorry for Sousuke this episode, and I have to say I quite like him now:)
Rin crying almost made me cry too. Ai and Momo showing up was really awesome. they're such a good team^^
oh man I laughed at the Iwatobi/Samezuka exchanges before the start. haha even Makoto joined in:P
I'm glad the Iwatobi boys won, they deserved it. but in all honesty if the Samezuka team would've won, I wouldn't even mind that much.
next episode some nagisa/rei and makoto/haru talk. those.. f...fireworks..teehee>0<

I think he keeps pestering Haru because he wants to go to the same university and swim together. But well, he has to grow up at some time.

I can't wait to see what happens next week!

Sousuke's injury secret is revealed. Rin found it out with an indirect but cool way.

Some recollections of the rivalry and frustration from both side. That was pretty emotional when Rin cried after Sousuke discloses that he'll give up swimming..

Loved the relay match. Even with a wrecked shoulder, Sousuke was a beast!
Rin vs. Haru was intense as usual. I wish they'd show us the difference in time they reached the end. It looked like a tie though.

Good episode. So, Sousuke will give up swimming for real? I hope not..

Really tough on my emotions in this episode. That race had such mixed feelings from me, overall I wanted rin's ultimate team to win this time buuuut no surprise. I love Iwatobi buuuuuttt errrrr. Though even if rin's team won sousuke can't put another race could he? Though. I was surprised that haru just went up told the whole team sousuke's story.
Makoshima-sempai was great in this episode for me.

You can't always be together with your friends from school. At some points you'll have to go down different paths. That's life. But it doesn't mean you can't still be friends. And it doesn't mean you'll never be joined in the future at some time.

That was the best relay ever! With Iwatobe making it into the nationals. This episode made me not want Samezuka to not lose either :(
Some background on Sousuke! Nice seeing younger Rin and Gou too.
How he injured his shoulders and his thoughts about Rin. It felt really nice and especially how the last year relay sparked something inside him.
To want to swim this relay even if it destroys his shoulder. That willpower though in the relay!
Not only did Sousuke's background made it an impactful episode, it also made the relay that much more intense! All those tears they shared and them being that caring for each other T.T

Man,this episode was so dramatic it made me sick. And not because it was dramatic,but because it was focused on Sousuke. Rin cried because of him. What the fuck. I still don't like Sousuke.
I don't know but I was really sure Samekuza was going to win. I'm so glad I wasn't right. I'm glad Haru win. I'm glad.
Sousuke was just for more fujoshi bait,forced drama and new OTPs to make for fujoshi IMO.
I only what to know what will happen to Haru.

I feel like the episode would've been better if Samezuka had won the race, but couldn't proceed to the finals because of Sosuke's shoulder (Rin would pull out because he wouldn't want to swim without Sosuke). With them pulling out Iwatobi would be given their nationals spot (presumably). That's my opinion on what should've happened.

Although I thunk because they made the exchange such an important thing this season, I reckon Haru jumped the gun and caused Iwatobi to be disqualified (speculation).

Regardless it was a nice episode with Sosuke's character development, it is upsetting that he could/can never compete against Rin but now at least their friendship can become more than the competitive sports friendship they've had from childhood.

Dear Rin and Sousuke, please get married already.
Bwahaha, I'm just kidding. I mean, yes, this anime is pretty gay, but that isn't really want I want to talk about here. [ and I don't know if I even ship Rinsuke ]

I was so surprised to learn that Sousuke fabricated the entire story about him being scouted. And now, I feel terribly sorry for him. He sacrificed so much just to be able to swim with Rin again. As someone who swims and participates in other sports, I know that any injury, if overworked to the point of which Sousuke did, can be debilitating and also can be a disability that will affect him for not only a year or two, but for the rest of his life. Considering that even after the two years of rehabilitation, his shoulder didn't quite heal, and he was still training in swimming when he joined Samezuka's team, I have my doubts as to whether Sousuke will ever recuperate from the injury. But that makes the impact of what he did just that much more meaningful. He gave up so much, maybe even the proper use of his shoulder for the rest of his life, just to swim with Rin. Once. Only once. And he would be content. I'm so happy to see that he finally was able to pull himself out of the darkness, and understand the meaning of swimming a relay. When he was a child, his words about a relay being too much responsibility to bear is only a half-truth. With that responsibility comes three people who will support you in whatever you do. Even if you mess up in the relay, your team will most likely never hold a grudge. Even though Sousuke was injured, as many of you probably saw, the rest of his relay team still supported him. They encouraged him to swim, and didn't scream at him even though he faltered in the relay. That, I think, is the most significant part of Samezuka's relay team. When you are on a relay team, none of the members of your team are your rivals. You are best friends, maybe acquaintances, but after those fleeting minutes of the race, you're closer than you ever were before.

When somebody cries in a movie or a book, I start crying too. I don't know how much more my little kokoro can take. At the end of this season, I'm pretty sure my kokoro will be brokoro into millions of little pieces. See, it's possible that Rin was upset because Sousuke had lied to him, but I think the realization of how much work Sousuke put into training so that he might be able to meet Rin again someday really hit home. It probably would be the same for any of us. Imagine if your friend had constantly been studying, working to the point where it started to have permanent affects on their health, just so you could meet in college one day again. I would never want anyone to sacrifice their well-being for me. Sousuke's devotion is something that really needs to be observed, because I doubt few people would continue working past the point of injury to reach a goal that might not even be attainable.

A big congratulations to Iwatobi for their win! Holy animation, that race scene was just perfectly coordinated, focused on just the right parts and I actually felt my heart pounding when I was watching it, not only out of anticipation to see who won, but also because the camera angles and shots managed to create a very intense feeling of drama. I'm lame, I guess. I get worked up over an anime.

I believe that something from Rin and Sousuke's conversation must have affected Haru. Maybe he's realized how much other people are sacrificing to be able to swim with him. Even though he doesn't like the attention, I believe Haruka needs to acknowledge the idea. There's clearly something going on in the next episode, though I can't say for sure what that will be. It appears as though we'll be having another fireworks/ nighttime scene with Haru and Makoto? I wonder what will come of the conversation this time.

Since Sousuke is not going to be able to swin anymore, he will get Gou instead. Not a bad deal.
