    Is it ok to like this show.. If I'm a man?
    This show is hilarious.

    I'm a man and I totally dig this show. Cut the whole "this is for the ladies" BS, it's a nice show where the characters actually care about each other and form nice relationships. We need more anime like this!

    Just watch it. You won't regret it.
    First of all I'm a straight male, and this is currently tied for my favorite series this season. I can't decide whether I like this or WATAMOTE more.

    I've shown it to friends, and some of them have said "Yeah this is gay. Literally."

    This is as much yaoi as K-ON is yuri. Seriously. Yeah there are some scenes that could be taken that way, but what it comes down to is that it's a bunch ...

    Looking forward to more episodes
    I love the fact that there is a popular anime that objectifies the male body as much as 98% of anime does to the female body.

    Besides that it looks like it will be a good sports anime. The story looks interesting so far and the animation and character design is great.

    Stop complaining boys, this one's A GIFT TO THE GIRLS
    Yaoi, fanservice yada yada yada. Obviously, this anime is aiming towards girls. Boys, look at 80% (random number and perhaps even exaggeration) of the popular animes here. Chances are, there's fan service for you boys in many of them. We gals are getting a slice of the fan service cake. (However, if any of you guys out there enjoy this, HIGH FIVE! This anime is seriously pretty funny).

    This ...

  • So much friendship, so much heartbreak!
    I was excited when I saw the first previews of the first season. I recommend this anime to anyone and everyone. It has so much humor, it will make you smile, cry, laugh, ache, and feel every emotion in between. The characters are loveable, and the antagonists were even hard to hate. This isn't just a show for girls to look at nice swimmer bodies, everyone needs to watch this anime. It has so much ...

    What's so amazing about it?
    Honestly, this anime isn't as amazing as everyone makes it seem. I still watch the series, but it won't bother me at all if it ended already. It's basically just fan service with not much of an actual plot. I don't really feel any emotional attachment to the characters like I do with most animes. The problems that the characters face in the anime are unrealistic and don't really seem to matter to ...

    This anime shows the spirit of summer, its an awesome mix of slice of life/sports anime, the animation and characters are just awesome, it isn't just about cute boys that can swim, the boys all have their own characters, and all mesh together very nicely, I recommend this anime to anyone, I know guys are like "But this is not for straight guys" that is not the main focus, sure they put some of ...

  • The love child of slice of life and sports anime
    I honestly had so much fun watching this anime it is not even funny. this show combine both the slice of life genre and the sports anime genre into a really fun and absolutely beautiful series. The series is really funny and even kind of heart warming at times.
