THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
The joke of Rei failing badly was quite funny the first time, less so thereafter, but at least we get more glorious angles every time. The Gou/Kou business is definitely becoming a pain, though.

I'm really liking Rei now :P, I mean his swimming outfit...ahahaha. RAINBOW. Actually, I laughed at most of the outfits. Gou seems to be quite happy though:

I swear, every time he jumps into the pool though, I feel trolled. Funny episode.

LOL & poor@Rei And congrats, Rei, finally! I liked the scenes of ants and butterfly on the poolside which was metaphorically meaningful. Rome was not built in a day. Hope he will improve his swimming skill day by day.

It was an enjoyable episode. Next episode also seems interesting. Will keep watching

Swimming lesson for glass guy, which has hard time. And short time training. Seems like the girl found something her brother wrote.

That smile when trying out the swimming suit for main guy!! Confrontation for the two (basically that red hair guy trapped that guy from being free), and rematch promise made.

He finally found his style, which is butterfly, himself.

No airing next week and next airing will be August 7, 2013. Going to the beach?

We took the same screenshot orz

But yeah, I agree. I didn't think Rei would be such a likeable character.

I am so excited !

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.

Rei's swimming while staying still was funny. His taste in swimsuits leaves something to be desired as well.

This week was okay
Just more of what we've seen in the past whether it's the comedy, pandering, or Rin/Haru

The upcoming tournament is a good opportunity for the show to switch itself up and flex its creative muscles

So we have...
someone who can only swim freestyle because they want to be free
someone who can only swim butterfly because inside they secretly want to be one (on Haru's chest)
someone who can only swim for another because inside he wants them by his side

I can't help but wonder what swimming limitations the other two guys have. We already know that Sensei has a deep mysterious past in the swimming industry. XD

The swim store is the best place. Rin and Captain have moved up my list.

This was a great episode! I got to see more of Rei, yay! Can't wait until they finally go to a tournament.

Omg I cracked up so hard at the trying on swimsuits scene. That rainbow one, I'm glad Rei didn't end up buying it. I knew Rei would try out butterfly style after the butterfly landed on Haru, good thing he could finally swim!

The BL vibes I got from the Haru x Rin scene lol. Still, at least Rin confronted Haru about it.

Also, I need that OST. Sooo calming and relaxing!

Man, there were quite a few times I laughed out loud during this episode.
I'm really loving this show, even though I just can't get over how ridiculous some of these situations/convenient camera angles are.. but no complaints here. I guess it's those kinds of things that make it all the more hilarious and enjoyable!

Really fun episode.

Rei's parts were so hilarious this ep. How he has perfect form but can't move nor get above water was so lol XD

The swimsuit shopping was lol...Dat Rainbow XDXDXD

Lol'd at Haru choosing the same swimsuit over and over again XD

Lol'd at how Nagisa was asking the coach to train him while stuffing pizza in his face XD

Kou and Ama-chan are cute as usual <3

Nxt ep...Beach ep???

Loved the end card!!

It's basically K-on.. Dropping it. There will be no real swimming. One competition won't change anything at all.

I didn't enjoy this episode as much as the previous ones for some reason, but it was still pretty great :D Free! is one of the few anime that can actually make me laugh out loud.

"The water doesn't like him." Haruka is such a little shit but that's what I love about him. I laughed so hard at him having like 20 pairs of the same swim shorts.

The scene where they were all trying on swimming trunks was hilarious aswell. Like Rei what is that even. I love Rei so much <3

I love the swim captain from the other school aswell, he's like a big teddy bear >w<

And the sexual tension between Rin and Haru. If I wasn't convinced these two were in love before I am now.

In the previews, I always thought Rei looked like the least interesting character, but gawd he's hilarious. I'm finding this show more charming with every episode.

Over the top fanservice if you ask me but then I'm a guy. C'mon KyoAni! You got two great girls to use. Seriously, if we don't get a fanservice moment with Gou or sensei I'm gonna be pissed ;)

Episode otherwise was a little slow. Last week was better

this right here is the problem with this show.

4 episodes of 12 already and we didnt see any real swimming or competitions.
also the Yaoi vibe is growing exponentially to the number of episodes.

i really hope my time is not wasted here.

3/5 for now

Rei's my favourite in this show now. Too sassy and unexpected. Before episode 1 came out, I always expected this secluded, smartass megane instead of a hilarious, flashy, and fancy guy.

My favourite episode yet out of the released so far.

Why do the episodes keep getting better and better?
Seriously, this week was just, I couldn't stop laughing.

Rei is such a dork it isn't even funny.
I wish I saw more of Makoto trying on swimsuits though. He looked kind of cute in that black one though.
I'm happy with more Rin. His teeth weren't so sharp when he was confronting Haruka, I kinda wish they were always like that.

Anyway, hoping there's no fan service with the girls ever. I'd love for fanboys to be upset over that.
But it'll probably happen, meh.

I loved this episode though and I'm excited for more!
