I didn't see another thread that talked about people's opinions on Free!, so I went for it lol ^^" Correct me if I'm wrong and if there is one :)

Free! was one of the most anticipated Summer 2013 anime series and it does have a huge fanbase, but lately I've just been seeing these arguments (mostly from guys, I find) on how bad of a show it is and that it's just nothing but pointless fanservice for girls.

Now in my opinion, I think that is ridiculous. Yes, I'm not going to deny that it does have its fanservice for us girls and don't get me wrong, I do enjoy the fanservice lol. I mean, what girl wouldn't? But in reality, the fanservice has toned down about 95% starting after episode 4 I believe, and that's a HUGE decrease!!! There's still a little bit here and there, but it isn't nearly as bad as it was in the beginning. The fact is, 98% of anime is all fanservice given to the guys with the gigantic breasted women and panty shots. Girls rarely get any fanservice nowadays so should the guys really be complaining when they get more than us girls do?!

On another note, Free! is a lot more than fanservice. It has a touching and well made story that has some of the best pacing I've seen in a long time in anime and it just shows the immensely close friendship between friends. All the characters are likable (except for Rin, but that's just me haha ^^") and the animation is just so smooth, vibrant, colorful and stunning to look at. Not to mention that OP and ED it has as well as the cute tunes as the background music. I've even found my perfect anime guy lol ^^" in Makoto and he just represents the type of guy I hope to meet someday and it just makes me happy every time he comes on screen :)

Now, this is just my opinion of course so if you don't agree with me, that's perfectly fine!!! I'm just curious about what others think about the show and what your opinions are!!!

Make sure to not start any fights on this thread!!! This is here to just have a friendly atmosphere with people giving their thoughts. NO CRUDE LANGUAGE, NO STARTING FIGHTS ON THIS THREAD WITH ANYONE FOR ANY REASON, AND NO ATTACKING OR PUTTING DOWN ANYONE ELSE

Thanks and have fun you guys!!!!! <3 <3 <3 I look forward to reading your thoughts!!!

Yes! There's already a Free! discussion thread where you, and others can share opinions. It's here:


Please do cut and paste your thoughts into a post in that existing thread.

It's pretty common for the current season shows, especially those being simulcast on Crunchyroll, to have discussion threads that get started when the show starts and continue for as long as people want to keep talking about them. For an index to these discussion threads, see the "sticky" Show Discussion Index thread near the top of the Anime forum.
