* BookEnds: [[spoiler: The ending of Eternal Summer has scenes from the original launch trailer for the anime that came out before it aired.]]
** Also the last episode takes many cues from the first episode of "Eternal Summer", all with a little twist - Makoto fetching Haru from the tub [[spoiler: so they wont miss their flight from Tokyo to Iwatobi]], the Good-bye tradition of Samezukas third years, now with Rin challenging his club, the pool with cherry blossoms, now prepared by Rin. And this time they actually get to swim in it. All in all it very nicely conveys the idea that some things, even with all the change are very probably eternal.

** In the first episode of Eternal Summer, [[spoiler: the Iwatobi team fills their pool with cherry blossoms, then abducts Rin to show him. They urge him to swim in it, but it starts raining.]]
** In the finale of Eternal Summer, [[spoiler: Rin surprises the Iwatobi team by filling the Samezuka pool full of cherry blossoms and everyone swims in it.]]

* MoodWhiplash: The endings of the later Eternal Summer episodes tend to go like this: TearJerker, angst, at least one character crying, HEY FUTURE FISH!!

** During the beginning of Season 2, the gang tries to market their club to the incoming freshmen, but they're not quite sure how to do it. Gou suggests (and implements) the swim team showing off their strokes and their "[[{{Fanservice}} charm points]]" to get people interested. Which would be fine itself, but with the added bonus of ''stripping onstage'' to do the aforementioned actions. It only puts potential hopefuls off, and they turn their attention towards other clubs. You can't win ''everyone'' over with {{Fanservice}}.

In fact they only start getting results after Iwatobi's swim team wins nationals, showing that the team is capable and worth their time. You can't win ''everyone'' over with {{Fanservice}}.



** 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]].
* ShowerOfAngst: [[spoiler: Haru has one after losing to Rin]]. [[spoiler: Rei, contemplating his position on the swim team and his inability to swim any stroke but butterfly in Eternal Summer episode 3]].
** Brief, but very important one in Eternal Summer Episode 9 with [[spoiler: Sousuke when his shoulder hurt after practice in regionals.]]

* DarkerAndEdgier: [[spoiler: Episodes 5 and 6. Five ends with Rei being out in the ocean and a storm picks up. Episode 6 has everyone safe and sound but still, nobody saw this coming unless you had read High Speed! or the episode summaries beforehand.]]

** From the High Speed! novel, Haru and Nagisa came up with the nickname "Rin Rin" for Rin in order to pester him.

* SequelSeries: The entire premise is one to the light novel that Makoto, Haru, Nagisa and Rin came from, ''High Speed!''. The novel basically explains the backstory and relationships of the boys (sans Rei, but including Sousuke). The anime picks up after the events of the books, some odd years later.

* ArabianNightsDays: The first-season ED sequence of ''Anime/{{Free}}'' [[FemaleGaze gives us]] the Iwatobi guys plus Rin dressed in Arabian-styled outfits. [[{{Keet}} Nagisa's]] in particular makes him look a lot like a BellyDancer.

* AndTheAdventureContinues: During the ContinuityCavalcade [[spoiler: while Haru, Makoto and Rin have all gone to college, the swim teams still keep on existing as Rei and Nagisa instruct the new generation on Iwatobi's side and Nitori does the same with Momotarou on Samezuka's side. Also, Gou still manages the Iwatobi team with Miho.]]
* AnimalMotifs: The main cast (the main swimmers, to be exact) all have animal motifs. In ''Eternal Summer'', this later extends to Nitori and the new main characters introduced, Sosuke and Momotaro.

* BeachEpisode: Both inverted and deconstructed in episode five. The inversion comes in where it's only the guys dressed in swimsuits - though Gou is seen in one at one point, albeit still relatively covered up - but this is justified in that they're there to train.[[spoiler: The deconstruction comes in at the end, when the weather turns sour...the minute Rei decides to have a sneaky practise swim at night.]]

* {{Adorkable}}: Rei is book smart and serious, but still [[TheComicallySerious does ridiculous things as if they were normal]], like trying on silly patterned swimsuits with gusto, calling Rin "Rin-chan-san" [[note]]since Nagisa calls him "Rin-chan"[[/note]], and [[spoiler: pretending to be a detective and making sound effects while spying on Rin]].
