Lyrics: こだまさおり (Kodama Saori)
Composer and Arrangement:

  1. 渡辺泰司(Watanabe Yasushi)
  2. 山口朗彦(Yamaguchi Akihiko)

Translation Notes/Colour Code:

Colour coding is as above in the artists section as well as the following. When there’s more than 1 person singing, I’ll be alternating the colour of the phrase. Hopefully it’s not confusing @w@ Everyone singing will just be black xD

When I was trying to figure out who’s singing which part in SPLASH FREE, Tattsun, Wing and Mamo are really easy to pick out since their singing voices are unique but Zakki and HiraDai…haha I need to do more research QwQ The voices just blend in so well.

As for Water Surprise, it’s mostly right but there are still some phrases where I’m like…Nobunaga…is that you? Or is that just Tattsun going soft? Haha _(:3)∠)_

Burenai (ブレない) – It could mean ‘no breastroke’ but it can also mean ‘consistently heading towards one direction’, having a goal. Either makes sense, especially if you take the MV into account.

The FREE! Fanbook will be releasing an article on the lyrics of the OP and ED songs so I’ll be re-editing this then.

English Translation

A splash that makes us free! Bathe in the overlapped, contrasting lights
On a day that feels so free, dive into to our brand new blue, yeah
Say, say, say the way I wish to.
Kick, kick, kick the way I do.
I want to grasp it. Pull! Pull! Pull! A-oh!
Deep, deep, deep to where I can probably reach. Splash Free!

There’s almost no day without breaststroke (Almost none)
The back and fill butterfly
The winning chances based on trial and error (In the future)
Can be left for later (So take it easy, ah)

Moisten it (with the finger that paddles with water)
The emotion that flows in (quenches my thirst)
An obscure relay no longer (Oh-oh) fires me up.
Release your spirit.

A splash that makes us free! Within the contrast of the lights
Concentrate your eyes on the summer that will never end, yeah.
Say, say, say the way I wish to.
Kick, kick, kick the way I do.
Towards the radiance, pull! Pull! Pull! A-oh!
I reached out deep, deep, deep. Splash Free!

There are days where I’ll probably get irritated (Probably)
Back and forth I drift.
An optimistic outlook or the like (I know, I know)
I’ll envy or something (But never too late, ah)

At my fingertips (Before I even feel it),
The next vibration (I end up noticing).
Hesitated (The me, one day)
Will go and jump over the shadow (The wave that there is only now)
I can’t protect it completely (Like kicking the water)
It is an unrealistic pride (In a smooth line)
If you intend to be the best (Woah) you’ll become smaller (Now)
Throw away that image!

Let us, a free style! Create it. Touch the blue that is no one at all.
More than our usual self, let’s become freer, yeah
Say, say, say the way I wish to.
Kick, kick, kick the way I do.
I want to grasp it. Pull! Pull! Pull! A-oh!
Deep, deep, deep to where I can probably reach. Splash Free!

(Say! Say! Say! A-oh!)
(Kick! Kick! Kick! A-oh!)
(Pull! Pull! Pull! A-oh!)
(Deep! Deep! Deep! Splash Free!)

A splash that makes us free! Within the contrast of the lights
Burn into our memory, that summer that will never end, yeah.
Let us, a free style! Create it. Touch the blue that is no one at all.
More than our usual self, let’s become freer, yeah
Say, say, say the way I wish to.
Kick, kick, kick the way I do.

English Translation

Woah-oh-oh-oh, Woah-oh-oh-oh, Take your marks

Called out by the sun, the chime of the end of class (Go out!)
The place I head for is already decided
A quick paced after school (After school)

Into the sky reflected on the water surface (Into the sky)
Towards the diffused reflection of the sunlight (Let’s dive!)
I can’t wait, not even one second, the hot-blooded pulsation, Don’t be cool

The boring routine, and bothersome things, close them up inside the locker.
The flung off rules, the rising spirits
OK, Take your mark…

(Are you ready? Hurry, hurry! We are all so excited for it!)

It’s water surprise! (Woah-oh-oh-oh)
A world that moves inside a sheet of water spray (Woah-oh-oh-oh)
At accelerating speed, I dove in
A floating body (Woah-oh) A released heart (Woah-oh)
A paradise you slide into
With friends that have gathered, let’s swim together (Woah-oh-oh-oh)

An increasing smile, (Woah-oh-oh-oh)
Underneath the sun, (Woah-oh-oh-oh)
When it shines, (Woah-oh-oh-oh)
You connect with friends (Woah-oh-oh-oh)

No matter who spoke out first, in the end the result is the same (Enjoy!)
Our purpose coincides, we want to enjoy after school (After school)

Once we realise, this pattern (Pattern)
Into proof that it’s comfortable (Today as well)
Without the intention of hiding that we’re restless, we’re in agreement, right, with each other

By the smell of summer you’re lured, join us
You can’t tell from inside the classroom
Blazing down sunshine, not a single cloud, towards that point

(Okay! Let’s get started!)

It’s water surprise! (Woah-oh-oh-oh)
In the glistening season, each and every ((Woah-oh-oh-oh)
Moment, ticked by and we chased after it
Without a blink of an eye (Woah-oh) The vibrant heat, (Woah-oh)
With all my might I absorbed it into my chest
The best current moment, I am swimming it.

(S-U-P-R-I-S-E)

It’s water surprise! (Woah-oh-oh-oh)
A world that moves inside a sheet of water spray (Woah-oh-oh-oh)

Ramblings:

So FREE! finished airing this morning and it’s also my birthday. WHY THANK YOU KYOANI AHAHAHAH I’m not sure how this counts as a treat for myself but I had to get this out. I HAD TO GET THESE SONGS OUT BECAUSE LOOK AT THE FRIENDSHIP AND LOVE IN THESE SONGS!!!

The songs are so catchy too! I swear once the first second of either song starts playing, it will stay in my mind forever. _(:3)∠)_ This is gotten so bad. I will forever be addicted to FREE! *sobs*

It was a beautiful anime in every aspect. The art and animation of course!! I mean I’m sure us fans had our eyes on it ever since the KyoAni CM because of the art!! Ksdfjaosefijaoiefj Then it just became so brilliant when it was properly animated… *cries*

Who knew…WHO KNEW THIS ANIME WOULD HAVE SUCH A MOVING PLOT. It wasn’t exactly focused on the swimming (but daym that muscle research and other research they did…). Instead it was about the links and friendships between the boys QwQ A link that never really broke but just had to be repaired…I CAN’T SAY ANYMORE OR I’LL START CRYING MY EYES OUT AGAIN ヾ(:3ノシヾ)ノシ ←(Back stroke instead of flailing, anyone? /shot)

And and and!! Australia was featured. WELL MORE SPECIFICALLY SYDNEY WAS FEATURED IN THE 11TH ENDING CARD!! When people say Olympic and swimming, we usually assume Brisbane (Queensland) because that’s where most Olympic swimmers train. It’s also pretty famous for its beaches 0w0 But then they showed Sydney (where the 2000 Olympics were held) and I THINK MY ENTIRE UNI ANIME SOCIETY AND OTHER SYDNEY FANS/COSPLAYERS JUST WENT CRAZY hahaha You can totally guess which uni I go to now >w<

It’s just so rare for us to appear in anything at all…that’s why I’m so much more attached to FREE! than I thought I’d be. But of course there’s Haruka >///////< THAT DARLING MY BIAS I WILL NEVER STRAY FROM YOU (to other guys in the anime.) kasjfdaoiefj Let me just…hug you and love you asjdfoiejf …I think I should stop rambling now hahahah Well, enjoy the lyrics and don’t expect the others to be up soon ww /shot

  1. Wow, this must be really hard taking account of all the voices in the song. For me, Mamo and Tatsun’s voices are easily recognizable (musicians). But Wing, Zakki and Hirarin’s voices sounds almost the same. When I read your translation and try differentiate the voices for myself, I got dizzy @w@”
    Kudos for you to be able to do that! ^_^ And many thanks for the translation!
