The third epidode of Free! is already out and I’ve made some gifs from it because I couldn’t help but giggle till the end watching Rei-chan’s acts. He is so adorable and how could you not ship Rei and Nagisa? I ship them so hard😄 I’ve posted them on tumblr but well why not?
These are my favourite scenes :
Rei : “Why does it have to be me?”
Nagisa : “The main reason is because you looked beautiful.”
Oh my…This part is precious. Look how surprised and blushed Rei is because of Nagisa. Rei always following theories and calculations before he jumps but the coach said he needs to stop doing it because he doesn’t make any progress. Nagisa is different, he told Rei that his pose while jumping is so beautiful and said that it’s not something everybody can do. Instead of asking him to stop doing calculations, Nagisa asked him to use it for swimming. I think it’s the first time someone told him that and maybe this is the reason why he finally agreed to join.
PLOT TWIST : Rei-chan can’t swim
I didn’t expect this at all to be honest. I thought he’s a great swimmer just like what Makoto said. I laughed uncontrollably when Rei was sinking like a stone in swimming pool because wow, what a plot twist.
I told you that Free! is a very promising anime. Just don’t judge it before you watch it yourself.
