Free! Season 2 rant + review! :P

Alright, first off SPOILER ALERT for those who haven’t seen/finished Free! Season 2

OK, now that’s out-of-the-way, let me begin my thoughts/ rant whatever you may want to call it. This is purely MY OWN OPINION, this is I guess, is also a review of the show and how I thought of it overall.

Well, I actually just finished watching the last episode of Season 2…and let me tell you…soemthing is really bugging me. Like reeeaaally bugging me. I’m going to be honest here, I’m actually quite disappointed with Season 2 ūüė¶ As much as it kills me to say it, I really did not like season 2. Season 1 had more¬† plot, there was a lot more character development/ character strength improvements, more “problems” while balancing “fun” episodes. Season 2 was just a huge emotional mess.

Now, like my previous post (the one talking about spoilers…), I don’t binge watch shows. I like to take my time with shows/animes, and so I only watch them once a week. (how I manage to do that, beats me) Because of that, I¬†lose track of what’s going on and what happened in the last episode etc. BUT its harder for me to concentrate when I’m slowly slipping away from the show, does that make sense? xD

After season 1, I was in love with the show. The first episode was the best, it got me right in. OK, maybe it has something to do with goodlooking shirtless guys wearing tight speedos doing overly flashy poses, but what really got me into it, was the story, the animation, the characters, even the music! Everything was wonderful, and I have finally found another Anime that I truly love and enjoy! Season 1 wrapped up nicely, and hearing that there would be a second season coming, made me that much more excited!

Well……season 2 was very different. Honestly, when they were introducing new characters, I thought there would be “another rival” for Haru, *cough cough Sousuke cough*. But…he didn’t really do much :/ Yes he had an injury, so maybe that was the reason why he couldn’t do much, but he didn’t have that, ‘badass, I’m gonna beat you in any way possible’ vibe. Initially, I felt he did, but his character ended up being bland and disappointing. Aaah, i feel bad…I really don’t want to talk bad about this show because I Love it, buts sighs, its bothering me so much >.<

Secondly, there’s a lot of emotional scenes, like it got pretty deep. Everyone was all stressing about what there gonna do after high school, Haru had this super high nightmare, Nagisa was running away from home…all of these random problems, it just…didn’t really fit in. I felt like the creators slowly got bored, and just added some random problems that each characters could have, to fill in each episode. It wasn’t about making the team better anymore, it more like, ‘oh, I have a problem, let’s all fix it before we can move on to practice.’

Lastly, the very last episode has got to be the most disappointing. I kinda lost track of what happened, but I thought RIn’s team and Haru’s team would swim against each other in a relay. Instead, it was only Haru’s team that swam? I mean, they¬†could have¬†had one (intense) last match before wrapping up the season, but they didn’t which made me feel…uneasy/disjointed?

Sighs, anyways, I don’t know, throughout the season I always wondered if their going to continue with it, and with that ending…I really don’t think so. >_< I wish there was, I mean…there could be a slight possibility, because it shows Rin and Haru in a World competition, but that’s it. Ehh It could just mean that they fulfilled there dreams and…. The End? sighs

It saddens me to think that it’s over, I really believe this show had so much potential. I even thought of countless ideas of what would’ve happened in season 2, but none of it happened. Anyways, I guess I’m bothered by the fact that the whole season in general was all over the place. Who else feels kinda weird after watching the last episode? Is it just me? Probably…

I’ll give season 2 a:¬†¬†¬†¬† 4.5/10 >__<

Season 1 was: 10/10 really! ^_^ I enjoyed it that much. ‚̧

Anyways, that wraps up my crappy review and rant. Part of me is hoping there would be a season 3…but its probably never gonna happen. sighs ūüė•¬† ok till next time guys!

Oh them spoilers…

Alright, I’m going to make a quick post that is probably really pointless, but whatever, I’m feeling really bothered right now.

Ok, so from the title you read above, do you ever get that weird feeling when you’re watching a show (whether it’s an Tv show, anime, drama etc) and like, you just don’t want it to end? I mean, there is that saying, “All good things eventually end.” But still…that feeling is just so bad that it makes you go nuts??

So, I’m not going to mention the show I’m watching right now (just in case I get spoilers aha..) but I’m currently in the 2nd season (it already finished its 2nd season and its starting its 3rd- hint hint lol…) and I like to take my time with it. I usually force myself to not watch it everyday, and only watch 2 episodes a week, Normal people would go on a marathon, but for me, I like to savor the moment and keep myself “controlled” by only watching 2 episodes a week.

But by doing this, comes with a price, As you may know I have a tumblr and on my blog, I blog things I like ( duh), and so that temptation to search up that show is immensely increased. And so curiosity killed the cat, I searched it up and yaaaay…I see spoilers! Whoo hoo! -___- I literally almost slammed my laptop down from the one post that I saw…

And let me tell you, I am not happy. well, who is happy when someone spoils their show or whatnot? I know its so stupid, you’re probably thinking, “dude just don’t go on tumblr, or don’t search it up..” I know..why do I even bother? But the temptation is just too much!

Sighs, this post is stupid. I’m sorry. I’m just feeling really upset and…somewhat dissapointed? The post I saw was a scene I didn’t exactly wanted…let’s just put it that way. And so…my love for this show has decreased..slightly I guess? I’m still going to watch it probably…most likely,..yeah I’ll still watch it, but I can’t help but keep thinking of that post in the next season..

Goodness, this is stupid right? Sighs, the things I get myself into. Anyways, I’m just going to end the post right here because its getting really pointless and dumb. I just wanted to kinda rant about it..hope I’m not the only one with these thoughts and all. Or maybe I’m just being overly sensitive..? Yeah..maybe. Anyways till next time. *runs off and balls eyes out*
