This is it- the last episode. The Iwatobi team is more confident than ever, but they have no idea about the devastating news Rin received at the end of last week’s episode. There’s lots of volatile emotions and plenty of pressure here as we go into episode 12 of Free!, and there’s only one way to find out what happens and how it ends. Let’s dive in.
It’s the second to last episode and things are starting to heat up between our newest swimmer and the club’s friend-turned-rival. Rei is demanding answers, but it isn’t clear if he’ll get any out of Rin. What will be the result of this clash of wills?

Diabolik Lovers is a reverse-harem series that began its life as a PSP otome game (if you’re unfamiliar with the term, think of it like a dating sim for girls). At first glance, it looked like a winner to me: nice character designs. Vampires. Romance. Call me a cliche, but I’m a girl who loves me a good romantic vampire tale. What can I say? It’s a weakness.
I’d also heard a lot of good things about the game this series is based on, so my expectations going into episode one of the anime series were high. Can I say Diabolik Lovers lived up to the hype though?
Last week ended with some shocking news about Rin that has the potential to complicate things for the Iwatobi team. Not only that, but our glasses-clad swimmer Rei seems to be getting more and more embroiled in the complex relationship between the rest of his team and Rin. How does it all pan out this week?
After almost losing their chance to keep competing last week, the boys of Iwatobi’s swim club are getting a second chance at victory. But that isn’t all that’s on the line: the relationship between Haruka and Rin is strained on both ends and only getting more tense as the action amps up. Who will come out in better shape this week?
