Rei Ryuugazaki sure can do some pretty high jumps...

Decent episode. LOL @ Gou. Why you so silly? I'm glad Rin is back though at the pool area. Competition TIME. These dudes have some nice swimming skills..

I like the intensity in his eyes:

Wow, Yonaga-san's character is persistant for wanting Hirakawa-san's character, who wants beauty and cannot swim. Using mind and mumbling (calculating) is his way of doing sport. Even though he was reluctant to swim, he was forced to swim. He is eventually dazed by Haruka's way of sporting and officially in. Now Yonaga-san's character is responsible for teaching him. (also,, I thought that "Haru-chan-san" was funny, too)

Miyata-san's character is also a swimmer who was there?! lol~

Wow, interesting song for chu2byou movie!!

They, unlike Fuu of Tamayura, struggle hard to recruit members. LOL @ Rei's diving. Nice to know he joined the club, but it felt forced. Rei reminded me of Midorima from Kuroko no Basket.

The series is getting interesting.

Rei was inspired and made the jump (pun intended) to join the team. Kou won't stop any time soon fantasizing over the guys, lol.

This episode was fuckin awesome. Inspecially for all the fangirls out there. So much shirtless power from all of them, but not from Rin. Rei is very sportly (Gou x Rei may incomming) and we found out that Nagisa is a little Stalker. I think he might love Rei or so, because he changed from Ryugazaki-kun to Rei-chan xD This anime is strange, mysterious and perfect for fangirls xD
Can't wait for the next episode because I can not get enough of this.

Rei is such a fun character !!

And a lot of Gou too, which is great !
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

So enough persistance persuades him to join the swim team - even if he can't swim?

Lol, I wonder how they'd teach him to swim next episode.. Hopefully he learns by the time the tournament comes. I was expecting him to do a pretty good dive, but that facepalm into the water, ouch LOL. And he did a starfish when he was jumping over the bar too! XD

Lol yeah, I guess he couldn't decide whether to say -chan or -san XD

I like how Haru and Rei turned out to be sillier than what the PVs let on.


5/5 would let him borrow all the speedos he needs again.
Preview looks hawt and highly amusing.

That was a really nice episode :D

Rei is really funny! I thought he's gonna be the serious type but turns out he really added a lot of humor to the episode. (Haru-chan-san and his fail dive XD)

Haru's motivation to (Oyogu tabehodai) was so lol XD

Kou was cute as usual and she was really helpful getting info and booking for practices...etc
Dat Muscle fetish is so lol XD

Also Yandere eye Ama-chan-sensei when they were talking about using her sexiness was lol XD
Hope we can at least see her in a swimsuit at least once ^^

Really can't get enough of that OP & ED

LOL omg that was hilarious and totally unexpected. Since he was talking about perfect form and looking pretty before, I knew he would decide to join after watching Haruka swim :D The part where Haruka looked like he was swimming in the ocean was really pretty, along with the nice relaxing bgm. Looking forward to seeing Rei learn how to swim XD

Good episode. Rei fail lol I laughed pretty hard. I thought Rei would be a more serious character but I guess I turned out to be wrong. Still ranked the least out of all the characters but I surprisingly liked him quite a bit.

"We don't need anyone like that in our club." Haru's so cute.

It was surprising that he didn't know how to swim. And there were a few funny moments here and there.

Also I thought that there were be more rivalry between the two schools, so I never thought that they would let them swim together.

Anyway, why are they keeping Gou fully clothed?!

Somehow I really cannot stand black haired megane guys. Rei is fucking loud too sometimes, what a turn off. He's doing it wrong if he's trying to be slightly tsundere. So far my least favourite character.

I guess Rei is second best guy, right below Makoto.

He looks like he can be an interesting foil to the group.
The one thing that I'd love to see is a lesbian yandere.

Good episode! It was cool, but not as great as last week's. I was feeling the homosexual undertones too much this time. >.> I fangirl over their bodies, not their relationships. xP But it was sweet seeing the friendship Nagisa and Rei formed nonetheless.

But yeah, everyone's so handsome as usual. :3 Haru's swimming really is beautiful.

Didn't enjoy this as much as last week's, but wasn't bad at all.

Why am I only now noticing how hilarious and adorable Nagisa is

I so ship Nagisa x Rei

I just want to cuddle Rin to death, he's such a buttface.

I really like Rei, he's such a dork. My heart still belongs to Haruka though. "So you're Haru-chan-san?" Rei, you are so precious.

And Haruka was just a cutie throughout the whole episode as usual. This is the first episode so far where he didn't randomly take his clothes off upon seeing water o:

Rei has made this episode the best one so far. Ahahaha. I think back on the type of character everyone thought Nagisa would be. Innocent shota looking up to senpai. Nagisa is so exploitative, opportunistic, relentless, manipulative.

Ah, the opening is so refreshing. I could watch this to no end in this heat. Kind of makes me want to get into the water - and I'm a miserable swimmer.
The ending though... If I want desert, I can go outside.

I think he might love Rei or so, because he changed from Ryugazaki-kun to Rei-chan xD

The manliest show ever- that was SOOO GAAAAAY. It was like Karneval, Uta no Prince, Amnesia plus sparkle vampires and sexy warewolves were put into the pinky child pool, filled with chocolate and jelly. I cannot even denied it wasn`t there (although I really would like to). I seriously didn`t like that episode, not becoz of homosexual subtext though, but becoz in previous episode fanservice was toned down. Like seriosuly, captain Mikoshiba remains only straight male so far, so he better run with Gou from this land of confussion to the lonely island and make lots of babies with her. From lighter side- Gou/Kou proves to be good menager by organize some exercises, she was close to talk to her bro, but then Nagisa pops out and ruined all mood (seriously Nagisa, you annoys hell out of me), Rei was funny, buuut he lack of something to be my fav, poor sensei- they intend to strip her in almost every episode, fujoshi were happy bccoz of ending card (I wonder if that cards represents ships so maybe next will be Mako/Kou? Yeah right, in yaoi fest anime, I can dream on :/).

One thing i don't like about this series is the forced rivalry between Haruko and Rin it's like rin lost one friendly match to haruko and its like he lost to him in an olimpic final match. The episode is ok it was funny and the fanservice is a little too much.

So Rei is actually a huge dork. Looooooove.

I feel kind of sorry for people who reject this series without giving it a chance because they think it's going to be only bishounen fanservice. It's really fun to watch, I had a smile on my face all the time.

Gou is just awesome. She's so me. I think I like her more than the male characters :'D

Also, Rei is very gay-ish. I like that.
The more I watch the ending, the more I like it.

I fell in love with Rei the moment I saw him, but it was a done deal when flailed his arms talking to Nagisa. <3

He gives off the impression off a cool calm megane character, but his so funny! I love his fail dive, and when he tried to pole vault. XD I can't wait to see more of him!

Gou still a fangirl, Nagisa still trying to get sensei in a swimsuit,and Rin's teeth are still sharp. So I'm still loving this show:)

Kinda disapointed Haru-chan-san didn't strip at the sight of water, but he was sick so I understand. Rin was manhandling people, which brought joy to my heart. I feel a least a small connection to every character but Makoto. Not that I don't love looking at him but I hope there's an episode about him soon.

Lolol, glasses guy is such a drama queen. Anyway, thought I'd drop it but guess I'll watch the rest now, although with 3 eps already done not sure where they can go with what's left.
And once again ED makes me burst out laughing so yeah, I'd rather have that than it being boring.
