  • 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 ...

  • Fanservice + (Magical swim team)
    At first I thought I would enjoy this show because of the incredibly attractive (read: shirtless) cast. However, time and time again I have found myself lured in by such a premise only to be incredibly disappointed. Free!, however, manages to add a grotesque amount of fanservice, but draws a fine line between this and the heartwarming slice of life tale it is telling. It weaves a warming tale of ...

  • Who Is ready to Swim?
    Just in time for summer here in the U.S.! 3 episodes in and so far it looks to be really good. The characters are well rounded and no one is lacking in story yet. Everyone has a place that they fit in to in the story. Its funny and the personality's make you wish you knew guys like this in real life! CANT WAIT FOR MORE!

  • Best anime I've watched in a long time.
    I'll be honest, i don't watch anime as much as i use to. Not because i'm growing out of it or anything, but because.... nothing really interests me. I tend to read manga more.
    BUT ..... i watched this and fell in love. There's something about "FREE!" that really does make you feel free ^_^

    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 ...

    my favourite show...
    I watched Free! around January 2013, and I was shocked when I finished Episode 12. I couldn't believe that a show like this existed, and that I had no idea that there were characters out there who I could relate to so much!

    Free! is amazing.

    Swimming and Muscles and Torment. Oh my!
    If you think Free! is just a show full of hot shirtless anime guys and fan service, you're only half right! Buckle you're motherf*ckin seat belts, because this show will take you on an agonizing emotional roller coaster. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll ogle and weep. Not only is this show pleasing to the eye, in more ways than one, but it also has an amazingly captivating story with a colorful ...
