God how has it been four years since I last watched this. Like these boys, I have also gone from high school to college in the interim. I love college settings now.

It was a fine introduction episode, everything felt Bigger and College Level, which I liked. Really curious to see if this show's kind of interpersonal drama still does anything for me after all these years, having watched a lot more stuff. Also glad I remembered everyone's faces, but boy I did not know if I was supposed to know the new people or not cause I was lost having not seen Starting Days yet plus it being four long years. I might do a rewatch honestly

I'm not watching it yet but I'm finishing up S2 now and planning to watch High Speed so I can jump into this knowing who everyone is. It had been a long time since I watched any of it as well but it was easy to pick back up where I left off Looking forward to getting past the high school stuff and into the college setting.

Actually IDR much from S1/2 but I look forward to a summer season of cute boys doing cute things

Here's to Haru hoping he finds out what he wants to do in life beyond swimming.

Do I need to watch any of the movies in order to not miss anything in the new season?

It's relying on characters from the HS:Starting Days movie so that one at least

Haruka and Ikuya look almost the exact same.

My favorite, based on image alone, is this Sousuke Yamazaki guy. I've always been a fan of that particular shoujo/otome reverse harem character archetype.

Dog, dog! Er, I mean, bark, bark!


It feels weird to be excited for Free cause I kinda just shrugged my way through the first two seasons (tho the second is legit good).

But yea High Speed is like swimming Hyouka it's really rad, and season 3 so far feels like a grab bag of everything that worked in this series so far and it's kinda shocking that it manages to fit together. This is the good poo poo.
