After watching Free! episode 10, ~hakuku and I were talking about how we own clothes that are very similar to what Haru and Rin were wearing on the flashback scene.

We're trying out an anime screencap treatment for this photo sequence. Although this exact scene wasn't in the episode, we felt like providing some establishing shots before getting into the actual reenactment. Please stay tuned for the rest!

We were wrong. So wrong.
What we got was a heartwarming coming-of-age story with endearing characters and interesting dynamics. It spoke of friendship and learning your self-worth and figuring out what drives you forward.
