For a show based off a sort animation this anime managed to create pretty good characters.
Just like many of these kinds of show the plot that pushes them isn’t really that interesting or important to the progression of the show. The characters pull the simple idea of a swimming contest into a huge drama thanks to the personal problems and the slow development each of them gets throughout both seasons.
The second season of “Free” is very much a continuation of the first accept with a higher focus on what the older boys of the swimming club will be doing with their in the future.
The animation for this season feels downgraded from the first with only the last 2 episodes truly showing off the beauty of the detail in the water.
Part from the down grade in animation there is no big fault that I can see with this anime (It’s perfect for what it is).
