Sosuke Yamazaki is one of the main supporting characters in the second season of Free, "Free! - Eternal Summer". He is introduced as one of Rin Matsuoka's childhood friends from Sano Elementary School. Rin and Sosuke used to be best friends, even spending New Years with each other. Sosuke and Rin swam together on Sano Elementary School's swim team as well as Samezuka Academy before Rin transferred to Iwatobi High School.

Sosuke is quite reserved and stoic compared to the other characters in Free, rarely showing his true feelings. Sosuke can be quite intimidating when first meeting someone, but is very friendly and kind once people take the time to get to know him. However, when he is coaching his team, he can be quite harsh and direct in his criticisms, but this is only because he believes in the ability of his team.

Sosuke was born on September 14th, making him a Virgo. His motif animal is a whale shark and he is often shown with the animal in official merchandise and promotional images. Sosuke is voiced by Yoshimasa Hosoya in the anime, with Ian Sinclair serving as his voice in the English dub of Free.
