Anime Poster
Free! (フリー! Furī!) is a Japanese anime television series directed by Hiroko Utsumi and produced by Kyoto Animation and Animation Do. It's based on the novel High☆Speed! written by Kōji Ōji.

Haruka, Rin, Makoto, and Nagisa used to be members of the same swimming club in elementary school. They win a tournament just before graduation, parting ways thereafter. Nagisa reunites with Makoto and Haruka in high school and Rin, thought to be studying in Australia, also reappears, but attending a different high school.

After an informal swim race between Haruka and Rin, Nagisa suggests forming the "Iwatobi High School Swimming Club" with Makoto and Haruka, drafting in Rei as their fourth member with Gou Matsuoka as their manager and Miho Amakata as their advisor. Rin joins the Samezuka Academy swim club and the two schools' teams compete against one another until both reach national level.

Season 1 focuses on the formation of the Iwatobi Club, Rin's estrangement from his former friends and subsequent reunion. Season 2, Free! Eternal Summer, focuses on developing a larger cast of characters, following their ups and downs in sport, friendship and future plans. Season 3, Free!-Dive to the Future-, recently debuted in July, 2018 and focuses on the lives of the characters in their first year of university.

High☆Speed!-Free! Starting Days- debuted in December 2015 and highlighted Haruka Nanase's first year of middle school and his friendships with the swim team there which included Makoto Tachibana, Asahi Shiina and Ikuya Kirishima.

A film trilogy was released in 2017. The first film titled Free!-Timeless Medley- Kizuna debuted in April 2017 and featured the bond between Makoto and Haruka through a compilation of scenes taken from existing footage with some newly added animation. The second film titled Free!-Timeless Medley- Yakusoku debuted in July 2017 and featured the friendship between Rin and Sosuke in a similar style as Kizuna. The third film in the trilogy titled Free! -Take Your Marks- debuted in October 2017 and featured four new vignettes focusing on both the major and minor characters of the franchise.
