    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 ...

  • 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.

  • Love this show so much!!!!!!!
    Love this show! It just makes me want to swim and have fun with my friends. It is the perfect show for the summer. The ending is also amazing, I think its so cool that the voice actors are the singers of the song. Future Fish! Most definitely in my top five favorite shows of the summer!

  • It got kinda boring....
    I do understand why people hype this show... But it felt kinda played off and unentertaining for me. It seemed they created different types of characters to satisfy the fan base... Eh, I just didn't connect to the story line. I was just watching it for the eye candy, honestly, just like the rest of you guys.... "=3=

    Men Swimming is the best thing
    Men Swimming bro, what more do you want?

    Dis some sexy stuff right here, better get yo booty over here and watch.

    Although, in all seriousness, this anime is basically an every day Moe anime, but everything is reversed. Watching grown, muscular, men swimming is something that anyone would enjoy. Unless you're so afraid of questioning your sexuality, I suggest you watch this. Seeing as this ...

  • Enjoyable, doesn't take itself too seriously
    Yes, the fan service is strong in this one. However, this isn't a particular problem with me. Sometimes I see this show as a parody of every other anime. The characters may seem pretty bland - but that seems to play off the idea of each character being an archetype. Watching the interactions between characters gives more subtle cues of their personalities.
    Overall, I don't expect a super dramatic ...
