Bad and Boring   
Rating: 1.0 / 10.0

High Speed! is one of the worst Light Novels I've ever read, as expected by something published under the K.A. Esuma Bunko seal, everything, save for the art, sucked, boring and generic characters, nothing but fanservice, Ho Yay moments/BL undertones and shotas, not to mention horrible dialogues, unrealistic behaviors and interactions between everyone from the cast and also the cringiest melodrama ever made.

About the "characters":
The same as the anime, Haruka stills dull, stoic, autistic and retarded with zero personality, Makoto stills the same, bland, uninteresting and overly innocent retard as always, Rin stills the same butthurt crybaby used to play the 'rival' role in this series, but we all know that he serves just to add sexual tension between him and Haruka, Nagisa continues being the epitome of annoyingness with his hyperactive and overly flamboyant behavior, and Sousuke, which is pretty much the same as Rin, is nothing but a butthurt and annoying prick created for the same reason as him, Kisumi was the only one that I've actually enjoyed/liked but just because he's the one that sucked the least, but it's not like he was a good character by himself anyway .

I really want/ed to enjoy Free!/High Speed!, this franchise has potential and that's why I keep reading/watching everything they release, but when it comes this novel, I didn't enjoy it all, it was boring and sometimes even disgusting, reading this LN was something painful to do, the characters sucked, there was no plot, and the art was the only redeeming factor, but when it comes to rating/reviewing LNs everyone knows that you're not supposed to take this as a important factor. If you are a fan of this series you're probably going to like, there are a lot of moments that were obviously written to make fangirls squeal and say 'kyaaaa that's so cute/gay', but if you, just like me, are not a fan of this series I suggest you not to waste your time with this LN (or maybe do it, it's your life anyways, maybe you'll find something to enjoy on it) ,KyoAni shouldn't be allowed to publish LNs, this by far one of the worst things ever written and if you want to watch series with bishounen/attractive men, I suggest you to read/watch:

Baccano!, Code Geass, D.N.Angel, D.Gray-man, Fairy Tail, Fate/Zero, FFVII: Advent Children, Gintama, Gundam W, Karneval, Kuroko No Basket, Natsume Yuujinchou, No.6., Pandora Hearts, Shokugeki No Souma, Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE, Zetsuen no Tempest and many others that are full of 'Ikemen' but unlike the ones from this franchise they are well-written and far away from being completely forgettable/generic.
P.S. Congratulations Kouji Ouji, you nearly killed anime in 2013, but thankfully KILL LA KILL managed to save it, but hey, at least you tried.
