Watch Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club
- 2 Seasons
Haruka Nanase loves the water. He doesn't care about swimming competitively and only swims freestyle, however when he is in his last year of grade school his friend, Rin Matsuoka, convinces him to compete in a relay with their two other friends, Makoto Tachibana and Hazuki Nagisa. After winning the tournament Rin reveals that he's going to be leaving to study abroad in order to become an Olympic swimmer. Four years later, when the boys are in high school, they reunite with their old friend Rin only to find that his personality has completely changed. He challenges Haru to a race, ignoring Makoto and Nagisa. Rin wins the race, but instead of being happy he becomes angry, not accepting his victory due to the fact that Haru no longer swims competitively and is out of shape. The next day Nagisa suggests that he, Makoto, and Haru, start a swim club so that they can see Rin, now a swimmer for rival school Samezuka Academy, at tournaments. Nagisa later recruits his classmate Rei Ryugazaki as well. When Rin learns Haru is competing again he decides to settle things at the next tougnament when both will be in peak condition.
