It's the visual novel you didn't even know you needed, based on the first commercial for the anime Free! When I started making this sim, all of our knowledge of the anime came from that thirty-second promo. We didn't know the name of the show or whether it would even become a real anime, so I took the character images from the commercial and I took the guys' names/personalities from the fandom. Know Your Meme has an excellent article on the Swimming Anime, so check that out!

Note that this isn't even close to done. Feedback is appreciated! The current plan is to just keep updating this file as I complete the game, so feel free to check back and see if that has happened. (THIS FEELS LIKE SPAMMING FOR VIEWS AND IT MAKES MY SOUL FEEL DIRTY BUT WHATEVS IT'S HOW I ROLL) I will post updates on my journal, and I will try to update at least once a week sometimes. And if you run into a bug/typo/whatever, just tell me in the comments so I can fix it!


EDIT May 16, 2013: Because late updates are better than on-time updates. You can now go on a walk! It's pretty intense, but I think you're strong enough to handle it.
EDIT May 22, 2013: You can now go on the internet inside the game that you are playing on the internet!! WHAAAAAAAAAAA
EDIT May 29, 2013: You can now tell Pimp about the MYSTERIOUS PHONE MYSTERY. You also learn his lazily-chosen first name. (Is it Clarence? Troy? Daisuke? Cosette? It could potentially be any or none of those!)
EDIT June 14, 2013: Mizu finally gets homework done in one route! Also there's like various mysteries going on. Probably too many mysteries. I like mysteries.
EDIT June 23, 2013: You can now tell Pimp about the MYSTERIOUS PHONE MYSTERY, but like differently than the first time. Also, with a little persistence, you can call the police.
EDIT July 5, 2013: Forget all this phone nonsense, you need to feed your cat! (Phone nonsense tends to follow you wherever you go, though.)
EDIT July 16, 2013: Technically updated yesterday, but there were some bugs I wanted to fix before telling anyone anything. More on the mysterious mystery of Senpai's brother, plus a romantic subplot?
EDIT August 24, 2013: Freaking finally got access to Adobe Flash again. ADOBE WHY DO YOU HATE LOVE AND JOY. Anyways, we are continuing where we left off, with the story of five derps who hide a... something... forgot the word. Birdy? Bardy? Brody? Something.

I saw the name of the player (my first time playing) and saw that it was Mizu and that made me fall out my chair laughing because I know that Mizu means water in japanese

This game makes me question my OTP (Haru x Rin (Tsun x Pimp)) and I'm not sure I'm okay with that but this got me into the anime in the first place...

DON'T READ THIS. YOU WILL BE KISSED ON THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE. NOW THAT YOU'VE STARTED READING, DON'T STOP. THIS IS SO FREAKY. 
1)Say your name 10 times 
2)Say your mom's name 5 times 
3)Say your crush's name 3 times
4)Paste this onto 4 other games
If you do this, your crush will kiss you on the nearest Friday possible. But if you don't paste this, you will get bad luck. SEND THIS ON 5 DIFFERENT GAMES IN 143 MINUTES. WHEN YOUR DONE, PRESS F6 AND YOUR CRUSHES NAME WILL APPEAR IN BIG LETTERS. THIS IS SO FREAKY IT ACTUALLY WORKS

sorry to bother u but i read this thing is scary... so just ingnore me or read it
his
is
not
a
joke!
carry
on
reading!
or
you
will
die,
even
if
you
only
looked
at
the
word
warning!


ONCE
THERE
WAS
A
LITTLE
GIRL
CALLED
CLARISSA,
SHE
WAS
10
YEARS
OLD
AND
SHE
LIVED
IN
A
MENTAL
HOSPITAL,
BEACUSE
SHE
KILLED
HER
MUM
AND
DAD.








SHE
GOT
SO
BAD
SHE
STARTED
TO
KILL
ALL
THE
STAFF
IN
THE
HOSPITAL
SO
THE
GOVERMENT
DECIDED
THAT
THE
BEST
IDEA
WAS
TO
GET
RID
OF
HER
SO
THEY
SET
UP
A
SPECIAL
ROOM
TO
KILL
HER,
AS
HUMANE
AS
POSSIBLE
BUT
IT
WENT
RONG
THE
MACHINE
THEY
WERE
USEING
WENT
WRONG.








AND
SHE
WAS
SAT
THERE
IN
AGONY
FOR
HOURS
UNTILL
SHE
FINALLY
DIED.








NOW
EVERY
WEEK
ON
THE
DAY
OF
HER
DEATH
SHE
RETURNS
TO THE
PERSON
THAT
READS
THIS
LETTER,
ON
A
MONDAY
NIGHT
AT
12:00
SHE
KREEPS
INTO
YOUR
ROOM
AND
KILLS
YOU,
BUT
SLOWLY
AND
PAINFULLY
SLOWLY
CUTTING
DIFFRENT
PARTS
OF
UR
BODY
THEN
WATCHES
YOU
BLEED
TO
DEATH
IF
YOU
DONT
SEND
THIS
TO
20
PEOPLE
BY
MIDNIGHT
SHELL
BE
COMEING
TO KILL
YOU!
SEND
IT
SO
SHE
HAS
ANOTHER
LOAD
OF
PEOPLE
TO
GET
AND
FORGETS
ABOUT
YOU
DONT
BELVE ME
HEY?

EXAMPLE
1:
JENNY
DIDNT BELIVE THIS AND DELETED IT WITHOUT EVEN READING THE WHOLE THING! A FEW DAYS LATER ON THE MONDAY NIGHT SHE WAS WOKEN UP BYE LOUDE FOOTSTEPS AND HEAVY BREETHING THERE WAS CLARISSA STANDING THERE WITH A HUGE KNIFE AND WELL JENNY IS HISTORY NOW.









EXAMPLE
2:
TOM
ONLY SENT IT TO 5 PEOPLE CUZ HE THOUGHT HED BE SAFE AND IT WAS PROBLY JUST A JOKE BUT OH HOW RONG WAS HE! HE DIED THE NEXT NIGHT ON MONDAY AND ILL TELL YA NOW IT WASNT PRETTY(JUST CUZ HE SENT FIVE HE DIDNT COMPLETE THE TASK)

EXAMPLE
3:
JOEANNA
SENT IT TO 19 PEOPLE SHE THOUGHT IT WAS CLOSE ENOUGH AND WOULD DO BUT SHE WAS WRONG SHE DIED THAT NIGHT ON A MONDAY AND ONCE AGAIN IT WASNT

Don't worry about things like this; they're literally never real. They're made by people who don't know what else to do with themselves, so they try to start things like this to creep people out. Yato (At your service) [V1]

Shota looks kinda like Nagisa, but maybe with a bit of a younger-looking, cuter, more-baby baby-face, huh?
Reply
:iconheartsareonfire4love:
Well, Tsun looks more like Haruka Nanase than ANYONE! But..not only that, his personality seems very dead-on similar to it, too. And is it me or does Haruka from Free! kinda look like Haru Yoshida / Yoshida Haru from "My Little Monster"? Well, technically, both their names are Haru?
Reply
:iconheartsareonfire4love:
You know what? Tsun kind of looks like a combination put-together of Haru and Rei! He really does look more like Haruka, though, with that monotone-looking, I-don't-care-attitude'd-like expression of a face! Buuut.. Another thing, he has much sexier-looking hair / better-looking hair than either one of them. Sorry, Rei. :/ I know you're an admirer of beauty and hate unattractive stuff, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I'm just expressing my opinion on what I'm beholding. Get it? ;) *giggles*
Reply
:iconheartsareonfire4love:
But anyway, Free! is based off the light novel "High Speed". I don't know if light novels have pictures or not in them, since I've only read manga books. Anyway, thanks for taking your time for creating this .. creative ... Sim Date. But it's honestly kind of stupid-ish. ;) Sorry. :/
Reply
:iconheartsareonfire4love:
Hey, since I read Rei's Wikipedia description of list of characters, and he avoids things that look "unattractive", both tangible and non-tangible, shouldn't he have a strong disliking of Rin's fangs?? LOL! :D ;)

Pimp-kun looks like Matsuoka Rin, except Pimp-kun has better teeth instead of those annoying-looking shark fangs. Seriously, I saw an episode where his childhood friend, Yamazaki Sosuke (or Sosuke Yamazaki Americanized) transferred, and Rin even had fangy looking teeth as a child in the flashbacks!

Tsun looks like Haru (nickname). His real Japanese-given-name is Haruka, but he's been nicknamed because of his "girlish name". ;) Pimp-kun looks like Rin! And Senpai (just called Senpai) looks like Makoto!!! I've figured it all out! Well, well, well, Fifthdemsional, you little cheat! ;) Hahaha, just kidding. <3

:iconheartsareonfire4love:
Yo fifthdimensional! I'm gonna corner you into this until you CONFESS to admitting what anime this based on! Now, is it Free, or not? Based on Free?!! COME ON ALREADY! Shota looks exactly like Nagisa from Free!!!! Hazuki Nagisa specifically, that is!! I wonder if Shota's and Nagisa's personalities are anything alike?? Except for, that Nagisa in Free never wears that hooded beige-like-colored jacket thing.
