    Fun stuff - definitely worth watching!
    The animation in this show is absolutely gorgeous. I love the water and they really capture swimming in general. Likable cast, too. I look forward to new episodes - glad they decided to make this into something. Much as the, ahem, fanservice portion of this makes me laugh, I legitimately think they have a decent storyline going already.

    Enough with all this Yaoi b.s
    This is a sports anime, no different than any other sports anime in the past. Like most sports anime it is a mostly male cast with your standard female manager. Why people are exclaiming its Yaoi is beyond me. I dont recall screams of "Its Yaoi!" when Kuroko aired. The guys dig that show, yet it has the same amount of bromance as Free. Is it because the dudes in Free! are shirtless? Is that where ...

    Amazing in spite of and because of the fanservice
    If you like guys, this is your show; if you don't like guys, this is still your show, as the animation is absolutely gorgeous and the story seems to be doing ok. This anime feels very vibrant and optimistic, with friendly rivalry and tarnished childhood friendships being the center of the plot movement. It's not a deep anime, but it's extremely entertaining and has so much eye candy. In short, ...

    I can definitely watch MORE of this!
    I was wowed by the animation, and the strong personalities of the characters! Someone was complaining about the boys sounding like girls, but don't they use female voice actors for children anyway?? That's what gives them the 'cuteness' for the age they're portraying. There's 3 more hours until the next episode, and I can't WAIT!! >_<

    Oh, and if you have Crunchyroll on Apple TV, it looks ...

    Don't think it's a yaoi, and if it is, so what?
    As everyone here mentions, it's full of fan-service for girls. I thoroughly enjoy it, and think it's a pretty nice relaxing anime. I've heard of many boys who also like it.
    But anyway, ladies, if you wish to please both your eyes and ovaries, watch it!

    Haven't watched it yet.
    I got a set of mini-figures from the show for Christmas because my mom thought they were Attack on Titan. Haven't watched it yet, but I've heard it's good, so it can have a neutral score for now.


    Just pressed space a bunch of times to fill up the review space.

    Sugoi
    Oh my! I love Free! This is the second season which was just as great as the first! It's so wild, intriguing,lovable, and just wow! Haru is actually one of my favorite characters, but if I had to choose my ultimate it w2ould be Makoto. Their relationship together is so stong! Nagisa is so energetic and can be sensitive if needed, and Rei is sweet and sassy

    Before watching this...
    I have to warn whoever is planning on watching this anime, as you will become emotionally invested and most likely end up speed watching it in a few days. Seriously, the story is about what most shonen anime are about: Friendship. It is the major theme of the show with swimming as that which brings this group of teens together.

    Dat Swimming Anime Tho
    This show really took me by surprise. When it first came out, it was mainly just known as that "swimming anime", and I decided to watch it, because it seemed kind of funny. An anime about swimming, seems kind of weird, right?

    But, as I started watching it more and more, the story started to pull me in and then I realized I couldn't stop watching it.

    The anime may be about swimming, but ...
