Asahi Shiina (椎名 旭 Shīna Asahi) is one of the main characters in the movie High☆Speed!-Free! Starting Days- and Free!'s third season, Free!-Dive to the Future-.[1] He was also a minor character in the light novel High☆Speed!. He is currently a student at Hidaka University where he is a member of the swim club alongside Haru.


Asahi is a slightly taller than average young man with messy red hair and pinkish eyes.


He is said to have a bright personality and is a luck-pusher. In Free! Starting Days, he is determined to recruit Makoto and Haruka after learning that they used to be part of a swimming club. He is also the one who finally convinced Ikuya to join the swimming club despite his reluctance. He is energetic and likes winning. Asahi repeats saying "I am a genius," as a form of motivation and this continues in Dive To The Future where Ikuya teased him of his mantra.


Asahi always wanted to become the captain of the swimming club. He has an older sister who appears in the movie and has the same hair color as him. She seems to enjoy teasing him but is still shown to be supportive of his swimming when she comes to cheer for him at the relay event. In Free!-Timeless Medley - Yakusoku, it is shown that he is the captain of Kazami High School's Swim Club.
