Of Sharks and Aquaphobia by Fouffey Of Sharks and Aquaphobia by Fouffey
So.... Fou watched Free! and guess what... Fou made OCs. Again. Per usual, we are splitting characters between Fou and Shi... so far Fou has Rin and Makoto. We are waiting to meet Rei before deciding which gets him and which gets Gou....
At any rate~ here are my new OCs~

School: Sister School to Samezuka Gakuen
Birthday: June 7th (Gemini)
Height: 5'6"

Traits/Notes:
- Superiority Complex due to her brother's amazing skill as an Olympic swimmer
- Extremely hard working, to the point she over works herself constantly
- Mental block preventing her own growth as a swimmer
- The 'ace' of her team
- Very generous and kind to her friends, but always forgets to look out for herself
- Patient and thick skinned, takes insults well unless they are directed toward her 'lack of proficiency' in swimming

Age: 17
Grade: 2nd Year HS
School: Iwatobi Koko

- Sharp tongued/honest/blunt but only because usually 'forgets to think first'

Thanks~
and, nope, no manga. It's based off a Light Novel. Which I don't think has been translated, yet...

The first episode came out on Wednesday, so not much to catch up with yet~
I myself prefer anime because I can multitask...

Aahah, I use crunchyroll so the hype was pretty large.
Aaa, that's true. But even so with anime I can also guess what is happening based on intonation and sounds. Which is another reason I prefer anime. I like noise.

Crunchyroll stopped working for me a while back so I changed to animefreak. Its special sometimes but plays things well enough to handle.
There is that. Sound does tend to help one figure out the basics of what is happening

I have a premium subscription to CR, so it works for me pretty well. I don't like other sites because of the ads, I only use them if CR doesn't have it.
Yup yup~ and I just hate silence. freaks me out.

uwu oh you too? i made an OC during class today! <3 haha I have her paired with Rin, but it's probably one sided!

Ahahah~ my Yune I have paired with Rin~ at first it's just her captain's meddling, though. "You two would be good for each other!" she says. Her to mild out his new found Australian-given arrogance and him to help fix her superiority complex.
Then I have Makoto with Miyabi who is afraid of water... but nothing else. So tough in the face of darkness (unlike him)! juuust... don't make her stand too close to the pool.

ANN have translators working for the site, who translate things from the official website to post info about upcoming animes, so it's pretty much an official thing planned by the animators.

Maa, I never read ANN, I only look at the wikia, so I never see anything like that.
But, either way, I don't really care/mind if it is not fully cannon. Though I try to follow cannon as much as possible, I like to have my own variations from the plot as well. If it ends up being too much I'll just have her be from the sister school that shares the pool or something.

Looking at other sites is really needed too when you're creating OCs, especially for ones that's for existing shows. :/ Usually, translators will pretty much try to get an accurate translation of an upcoming show from its official site.
You can't rely on Wikias that much since they don't give out accurate information and it's the fans who write the information. Plus, usually, wikias of new shows aren't really accurate ones besides the basics of that show's characters.
I don't expect you to follow canon way up or anything, but at least you need to read about a show's information at somewhere else other than fan-made-Wikias. They're not as accurate as the real Wikipedia. Try not to rely on one source and search at other sites.

... I'd rather if you did not speak in such a manner.
I didn't use ANN, because I did not know it was such a reliable source. I thought it was merely another fanmade site. I use only what I know. I did not know of any other means. I do my research, I did a fair amount. It was hard enough searching information on Free. Considering it is merely one episode long, I couldn't find much information on it.
I use wikia because while it may not be fully update, it has citing on it that prove that the information up is at least true.
And I did try to read the official site on my own... but my kanji skills are greatly lacking so I gave up which I couldn't find anything about Samezuka on its own.

Sorry, but that's how I give advice; I don't sugarcoat it but I apologize if it made me sound like I'm being insensitive.
I've tried to say it properly and not be a bigot just because of an inaccuracy. However if this is leading to a verbal debate just because you're assuming that I'm insensitive with my tone, I'd rather drop the conversation than to continue on the part where you think I'm being insensitive of your own feeling.

Which is why I state that searching for information at other sites is a lot more helpful than to rely one on.
Usually, I don't encourage people to create OCs when the anime is merely one-episode-long. I suggest that they wait until there's about 3-4 episodes of it to create them. Then again, I've seen OCs created before the official name and the school's name of each Free! characters were released.

Sorry, sorry... I just don't do well with advice, I suppose. 'm not used to getting things... 'wrong' I suppose. Plus I'm really effing tired and can't sleep. Stupid jetlag...

Maa, I understand the concept.... it's more that when I tried to search everything that popped up was tumblr or otherwise useless for mt goal. I then got frustrated and figured there was nothing out yet that would shoot down my idea. The fact I suck at searching certainly does not help.
Ahahah, in my mind I automatically start to formulate an OC as soon as I watch the first episode. I get tentative ideas and just put them down before I forget. Usually the 'location' of my OC is the most malleable. My KHR OC's famiglia changed at least five times, I swear.
With this information, I'll probably go with the sister school idea, then. I believe sharing the pool would do no harm, yes?
My main idea was them meeting through the school pool, so that was why I originally had her attend the same school. Plus I wanted to make an awesome girls team from a amazing swimming team-centered school.

Didn't realise this was out! I'll have to watch it later. I like how completely different your two characters are.

Ahahah, thanks! These two will definitely be fun~ <3 <3 we still need to pick Yune's last name, though... since Shi is creating her brother.
