Free! Names and Meanings

Guys! I was researching Japanese names are their meanings and look what I found:

Haruka: far off, distant

Rin: dignified, severe, cold

Makoto: sincerity

Nagisa: Seashore

Rei: lovely

No like I believe this is basically what the show is trying to fix within it’s characters

Haru who was distant…

image

was taught to reach out to the people he cared about

image

image

image

image

image

Rin who was too dignified and cold

image

learned to acknowledge and amend for his mistakes 

image

image

image

Makoto who is always ever so self sacrificing, always trying to be strong to the point of hiding everything if it meant the happiness of others or simply avoid any trouble just because of his ‘selfishness’

image

learned that it’s ok to be weak, to be TRUE TO ONES SELF, to stop pretending and actually say what he truely feels

image

image

image

Rei who only saw the beauty in for what it looked like

image

saw BEAUTY for what it felt like. That there are other things that make sports beautiful: Camaraderie, teamwork, trust…Friendship

and last but not the least

Nagisa…

which translates to seashore… 

Nagisa who is always so bubbly and cheerful actually has this insecure side.

At first glance, the seashore would look like the boundery between land and sea. But when you look at it in a different angle, it is actually ‘where the land and the sea meet’

Despite the age gap and his inner insecurities, Nagisa was able to prove to himself that he can do what others can if he puts his mind to it. That his age or anything else is no handicap but more of a bigger driving force for him to do his best.

This show is more than just muscles and torsos and fangasms
