How Free! instantly became a better sports series than Prince of Tennis
Not that it takes much to be a better sports series than PoT, but Free! did it in seven episodes, simply because
the main character - the god-gifted, oh-so-talented golden child of the series - LOST. In the first damn tournament. In his first damn race.
He lost because no matter how naturally talented he is, someone else worked their ass off and beat him. And now he's going to have to go through the realization that sometimes it takes effort, not just talent. Sometimes it's good to see a character have to go through that.
Hint hint, Konami.
