Who is Rei?
Ryuugazaki Rei is a fictional character from FREE! (2014-present), a popular anime series produced by Kyoto Animation. Set on the fictional Japanese town of Iwatobi in contemporary time, FREE! is about friendship and competitive swimming, starring the prodigy Nanase Haruka and his friends, whom viewers watched grow as persons and athletes from their elementary to university years.
I love Rei because his traits are to me most impressive: His skill at math and physics calculations is astounding; he does his best at everything; he is beholden by beauty and holds it as the most supreme virtue; and I could relate a lot to him especially at the beginning when he did not know how to swim! He's tacky and dorky at times, but that's why he's so endearing! ♥
The site title came from one of Rei's character songs. I feel that the title is fitting for his stroke of choice (and spirit animal), the butterfly.
