Japanese High Schoolers Recreate the Free! Opening
posted on by Bamboo Dong
The prestigious Nada High School, a highly-ranked private boys school in Kobe, Japan, has been entertaining Japanese netizens with its continual otaku hijinks.
Lately, a group of boys from the anime club tried their hand at recreating the opening animation from Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club.
Let's just say they get an A for effort.
While we can't judge their obvious enthusiasm too harshly, it's not quite as polished as their last effort, an amazing cross-dressing Love Live! School Idol Project skit for the school's culture festival.
Luckily, the anime club has since posted an actual video of the skit.
If you're wondering why the Japanese Twitterverse is so tickled by this club's activities, it's because Nada High School is one of the best private schools in Japan, with notoriously brutal entrance exams, and a high number of graduates who are accepted to elite universities both in Japan and abroad. While no one should be surprised there are anime fans even at the poshest of institutions, it's nice to see that even the most rigid of academic atmospheres can support this kind of fun.
