    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 ...

    Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club Review
    Ok, first, a straight, young guy talking here. I've watched this anime in about two days, about 6 episodes per day. That's how captivating this anime was for me. It's probably the highest number of episodes of an anime I've ever watched in such a short time, but anyways, let's get to the actual review:

    Story:

    The story is just awesome. The plot has many twists, but what I really really like ...

    Guys, it ain't for you
    Yes, this show is mainly for fanservice. But guess what, guys? It's not for you. This one for the girls. With all of the other fanservice anime with oversized breasts and panty shots, it's only fair that we get at least one with guys throwing their shirts off. My advice: stop wasting your time with this show if you have no interest in it. Lay off with the double standards, alright?

    As ...

    Haters gonna hate, I guess?
    So far this anime has lots of potential,and, fangirls(I guess I can count as one =_=)
    So of course there will be the haters. Guys. It's swimming. SWIMMING. How would you not expect shirtless guys? And, it's not even yaoi because for as much as I know, none of the characters are gay....yet.
    But that's not the point. This anime is surprisingly good, it has character development ...

    Seems pretty interesting.
    Let me start his review off with the fact that I'm a dude...I've read over some of the reviews for this anime and I've got to say, all this talk about fan service needs to stop...There's nothing strange about abs from active tournament level swimmers and what not. Then again, how to interpret that depends on how homophobic and sensitive you guys are...

    I'll be giving this anime a four. Why? ...

    The water is ready!!
    Perfect anime if you love swimming! Calm down people, yes they are guys on swimsuits, do you swim with you clothes on? because if the answer is yes you have some serious issues, go to therapy! Again if you are a guy and you feel uncomfortable around guys in swimming suits, stop insulting people online, go to therapy and leave people enjoy their favorite anime alone. This series is great, the ...

    It's Raining Men, Hallelujah!!
    Finally, lots of fan service for the ladies! So much shipping going on here XD. Don't get me wrong, I watch for the plot too. It is not often I watch a sports series because it has to be good enough to hold my attention and interesting enough to keep me watching because there has to be more than just bishies to keep me watching. Happily, this has it :). It is cute, fun, sexy and exciting ...
