Journal of anime ramblings, fiction works and reflections
I’ve never been a fan of sports anime. I tried once with Chihayafuru and twice with Kuroko no Basuke but my attention span has proven itself way too short with the sports genre. And then Free shows up. The first time I heard of it, the word ‘sports’ made me tune out whatever else was being said about it.
Then I come across this poster and I’m thinking “Oh! This might not be too bad!”. And it’s not because of these fine bishies; I swear it’s not. Kuruko no Basuke had that bait, along with the sweet catch of shounen-ai but I wasn’t sold then. It’s because of the swimming. Swimming is my favorite sport (
and I can’t swim *sobs*). And that is why I’m willing to give Free a great chance of being the first sports anime that I’ll like.
And that art! It works well enough as another pull factor to get me into this. Hopefully all this bait works its charms to keep me coming back for each episode. Also I had seen the promo video. It’s probably safe to say that I was drooling...No. I take that back. But you get the point; it was enticing. Very enticing.
That’s all for now.
