3 Summer 2014 anime whose activities are perfect for the season

*"When it comes to the summer season, swimming is usually one of the top activities as it not only provides an excellent way to cool down and escape the summer heat, but also make you fit. The anime which best exemplifies that is of course, Free! which is described by its fans as the anime which best describes the summer season. Its second season, Free! Eternal Summer is still one of the hottest titles anime this season and has definitely made a huge splash among fans.

The boys of the Iwatobi Swim Team are really a great fit for the summer as the anime’s mostly female fans have avidly tuned in to the series’ epic swimming pool battles."*
