Wait, so this series actually has swimming in it? Who would have thought.

The best PV so far. Actually managed to get my hyped.
When are we going to get a PV with Gou and Miko in it though?

I'm confused. If they swim then they can't pose for the camera and engage in homoerotic subtext like they're supposed to.

That trailer had more fanservice than everything KyoAni's done in the last 5 years combined.

Just watched the PV and the scene at the end... Too many lines on the body if you ask me. Kinda reminds me of Baki the Grappler, though not quite as extreme. Anime hyper

As a girl, I'd kind of prefer it if KyoAni didn't make it so obvious that they're targeting a female audience (and more specifically fujoshi) with this one. We'll see how things go.

Man, they are just so ripped. Anime hyper It's cool to see a bit of the match between Rin and Haruka. My sports series blood is definitely pumping now!

Love the headline. ACTUAL swimming!

KyoAni's animation is sooo good; they make swimming look so intense! I wanna go to their studio and hand out muffins and fistbumps to everybody working there.

Same here. And yeah lmao - as per, what? Most things KyoAni animates, over-dramatic is key.

This looks like it'll be a fun, even action-y series if done right. I'm hoping it can strike a balance between the school life/emotional side and the swimming/competitive for a truly great anime (in a similar vein as Chihayafuru? One can only dream).

As a parting note: As a girl I laugh at the silliness of people getting up in arms over some blatant fanservice, when anime as a whole has delivered that in veritable truckloads for years. And if we really want to get into the petty girls-vs-boys' targeted demographics, I ask you: When's the last time we saw an anime show off its cast of scantily-clad, ass or chest-bearing girls?
