    4 Stars From A Swimmer!
    I wasn't sure about the show after watching the trailer...but after watching the first episode I was very pleased! I have been a swimmer since a very young age, and and anime lover for just as long. To find an anime that is centered on swimming...my dream has come true! The characters have strong personality, and the first episode set the show up for a strong season. I'm looking forward to more ...

    Hooked 100% and Waiting for the Next Episode
    Can't wait for the next episode.
    It might have something to do with the shirtless guys, or the personality compatibility between the characters, or the developing plotline, or the quirky teacher, or the fact that this show is starting off to be really adorable.
    All I know is, this show has me hooked 100%, and I'm waiting with bated breath for the next episode.

    You'd never imagine how many feels there are!
    Free! is an anime i would watch over and over again. Not many people seem interested in this show!! I've heard people call it a "gay" show, but I guess that's their point of view and I won't hate them for it! I for one ship MakoHaru so I shouldn't be judging anyway! I wish there was a season three though! Absolutely loved this anime, and couldn't recommend it enough!
    10/10 (^w^)

    Free! Helped Me Remember Why I Love Anime
    Free! Eternal Summer is a wonderfully drawn story with intriguing concepts and engaging characters. I watched it when I had been going through a dry spell of no anime, and after I was done I could not remember why I stopped watching shows like this. Seeing the whole gang overcome challenges and help each other through life issues was inspiring and got me back into doing what I love ...

    Misleading Fandom, Amazing Anime!
    So, going into this anime, I was expecting lots of shirtless men being all sexy and get into awkward situations with each other, whilst their bodies were always wet. This was thanks to the large fraction of the fandom that mainly speak about this.

    BUT!

    To my own surprise, this anime has such an amazing story and great characters that you can see evolve right before your eyes into greater ...

    FREE SUMMER WEDNESDAY!
    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 ...

    Fan service for girls and I still love it
    When I first started watching this show I thought to myself "fan service for girls obviously" but as it went on I got more and more intrigued and couldn't stop watching. Sure a lot of scenes are over the top, but that just adds its own flare to the shows entirety. This is one of the clear examples of don't judge a book by its cover, I love this show.The believable cast the non over the top story ...

    Great Show in General
    I tried this show at random and i'm so happy I did. Even though the show is DEFINITELY made more for the ladies with it's manservice it is still enjoyable for guys. Ignoring the manservice this anime still has good characters, a simple but well handled story, a ending theme that will never leave my head, and the best animated water in the history of anime. It is most certainly made for ladies but ...

    Totally straight, totally male, totally love it
    I haven't watched anime for years, but when I heard about an anime about swimming, and saw that it had some great animation, I had to check it out since I used to swim.

    I was surprised. This show is really enjoyable to watch, it has some great characters and interesting social interactions between them. On the surface it comes off as gay, but I really like the bond that these guys have, and in ...

    swimming anime say yes
    While many liked it for the fan service. i liked the fact that it was a coming of age anime about what you do with your life. high school where people start to ask or answer the question and it nice that there a anime that does that. while there are other ones see my reviews on some other ones on the site. i think it tells a different story because it from the perspective of sports. your never as ...
