    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!

    Beautiful High School Boys Who Swim Well and Learn About Friendship
    Have you ever watched a show about a group of friends and wondered to yourself, "Why are Ross and Phoebe friends when they clearly don't like each other very much?" Obviously, it's just because they're in the same group.

    On the surface, "Free! Iwatobi Swim Club" is an anime about swimming that glorifies the male form in the same way that 95% of the rest of anime does with the female form. ...

    Best Sports Anime Ever?!
    At first I expected this to be a simple sports anime but it turned out being such a good anime it has ranked into my top favourites! It's just so heart warming and inspiring and personally has inspired me to become a swimmer and to be free! I really recommend this to everyone and this definitely earns a 5 star rating from me!

    A fun and uplifting anime!
    This is one of those animes I watch over and over and never get tired of! All of my friends, guys and gals, who've seen it get hooked! All the artwork is beautiful, I love all the characters and their development, and the story is really well told! It's really fun and uplifting which is a refreshing change from all the darker shows that are so popular lately.

    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.

    Free! Beautiful animation! :)
    This series is super great not only because there's fan service for girls (for once, lol) but because the characters have a lot of heart, the story is easy-going, and the animation is beautiful. The last episode made me cry a lot, but that's to be expected when you become so attached to the characters and their cute antics and their interactions with each other -it's really centered on friendship ...

    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 ...
