Okay, so new post. Not many of those coming out alot anymore, are they? So I decided to go ahead and re-watch one of my favorite anime shows. Free!Iwatobi Swim Club. To get a grip of the anime, you have to watch it. But I’m going to go ahead and give off some character portrayal, music, and overall animation reviews.
The first – character portrayal. I can say the characters are complex. They have a history with each other, and they are all friends. Or, so you think. The history of the characters is explained in the anime, and you learn how much these boys have been through together. Being a swim team has to be hard, but with the way that they’ve all been, trained and lived, it has to be so much harder than that. I simply adore the characters, and their relationship with the other members of the swim club and the other swim teams around. They persevere together, and they work together. I can say I love that.
Now, as for the music. I posted something like this earlier. If you remember “Rage on!”, that was from this anime. But not only does that introduce some to the anime, but the music that is actually put into the anime in itself is captivating. The music makes you anxious, before you get what you’re looking for – that dramatic scene, which can be heart-wrenching or heartwarming. It definitely portrays what is in the anime, and that is what most people look for. I know that I, am included in that group of people. The more music, and the better music, I can say the better and more likely I’m going to like it.
Now, as a final – the animation. I just – wow. That is literally all there is to say about it. The animation is great, and the artists and other forms of that just make it so much better. I can’t explain how much it makes me love it. Great animation, music, and characters is what makes an anime so much better. The well drawn and animated episodes can attract some and repel others, but I am in that boat with the attracted ones. There are so many things that are great about this anime, but I would be giving up too much information on it, and that wouldn’t be fun, now would it?
So go get out there and watch Free!
