* CareerEndingInjury: [[spoiler: Sousuke's dream of becoming a professional swimmer was crushed due to his wrecked shoulder.]]



* DreamCrushingHandicap: [[spoiler: Sousuke's dream of becoming a professional swimmer was crushed due to his wrecked shoulder.]]



** Sousuke is unfriendly (even threatening in Haru's case) toward everyone except Rin and eventually the rest of the relay team. [[spoiler:Turns out he has a DreamCrushingHandicap that has eliminated any chance he once had to swim professionally, and he can only bring himself to put on a nice face for Rin]].

* ShoutOut:
** [[http://i.imgur.com/PO6uCxz.jpg Rei in his butterfly swimsuit]] made many ''Manga/BusouRenkin'' fans wonder if he was the ''Free!'' universe's version of [[http://img1.ak.crunchyroll.com/i/spire3/02082008/e/b/c/6/ebc66bc0ab6810_full.jpg Papillon Mask.]]
** To [[Anime/TigerAndBunny Sky High]] in episode 9.
** In the first special, the game Haruka and Makoto were playing is an underwater version of VideoGame/AnimalCrossing.
** The elevator scene in episode 9 of Eternal Summer can't be anything but a reference to the [[LeaveTheCameraRunning infamous scene]] from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', with [[TheStoic Haru in the place of Rei]] and [[JerkassWoobie Sousuke in the place of Asuka]].

''Free!'' is an anime by Creator/KyotoAnimation that is a SportsStory surrounding the lives of HighSchool swimmers. It premiered on [[Summer2013Anime July 3, 2013]] and it is based on ''High☆Speed!'', a novel by Kouji Ouji. The novel was originally entered into the 2nd Kyoto Animation Award contest and received an honorable mention. A [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NqRG88E-s8 commercial released]] before the series was officially announced gained a sizable fanbase on both Tumblr and Pixiv due to the shirtless {{Bishonen}} featured. The show was quickly dubbed "Swimming Anime" before its actual name was revealed. It is co-produced by Animation DO (a subsidiary of [[Creator/KyotoAnimation KyoAni]]), and is directed by Hiroko Utsumi (marking her directorial debut) with series composition by Masahiro Yokotani and character designs by Futoshi Nishiya.
