    It's Raining Men, Hallelujah!!
    Finally, lots of fan service for the ladies! So much shipping going on here XD. Don't get me wrong, I watch for the plot too. It is not often I watch a sports series because it has to be good enough to hold my attention and interesting enough to keep me watching because there has to be more than just bishies to keep me watching. Happily, this has it :). It is cute, fun, sexy and exciting ...

    Honestly, my low expectations were blown away!
    When I first saw this show (not on Crunchyroll) I was immediately like, "this is gonna be really stupid." But I was wrong! I didn't like it right away but once I got into the second episode I was hooked. In fact, I reactivated my account just so I could watch it as it's released.

    The whole fan service portion of this show wasn't really something I took into account or found... uh hot? I just ...

    Recommend To BOTH Genders!
    KyoAni did an amazing job with the artwork in this series! Since this was a sports anime, I was a bit hesitant to watch. But I'm glad I did. Omg yes. This anime DOES have substance to it, having characters that are deeper than they appear and a phenomenal plot. That alone I think caters to the boy population. While the rest of us girls are, ahem, unff-ing over their bodies. The first episode ...

    Straight guy opinion. From a straight guy that swims.
    I'm a straight guy, and I love this show. Though I guess it could just be because I swim constantly and I find this show hilarious to relate to. Very clever, amusing, and if you're a chick I should imagine you would enjoy it very much
    Guys.... watch it.... but you might only enjoy it if you're gay or you swim.

    Hilarious show with a nice serious undertone
    When I first saw the poster for this anime, I was really skeptical about it.

    But after watching 12 episodes, Free! has totally changed my mind. I really enjoy the interactions between characters in this anime. And each character seems to have a unique personality that somehow fits together like a puzzle.

    The anime also explores serious themes like friendship, hardwork vs. natural talent, ...

    Not Bad. Looking Forward To The Next Episodes.
    To be honest, I thought it was going to be a lot worse than what I imagined. But wow, I was wrong and I'm not complaining. The characters are well rounded and recognizable. The concept is fresh and upbeat. Sure.. there's lots of eye candy that's a little cheesy, but it isn't over the top. And this animation... THIS is why I'm going to continue watching. The animation is so vivid and smooth. I ...

    Wow, just amazing... >W<
    The animation is amazing and the voices fit the characters perfectly. But I've been seeing this around alot, "OMG ITS YAOI!!" it's not labeled as Yaoi...so please stop ^^ Let's enjoy the anime.

    There are haters, and there are fangirls.
    Free! has so much yaoi ships and stuff I don't even--
    I mean, it's starting out okay but I can tell there is going to be a lot of potential, (as all sports anime I have seen have shown) but I cant guarantee that.

    But I don't see how it's not okay to have an anime that is made for fangirls but it's totally fine to have an ecchi/hentai anime for fanboys with girls that have boobs that size of ...

    Great Animantion and I'm not just talking about the fanservice
    Most people are talking about the fanservice, how its about hot guys and the series is made for girls who love yaoi. Well I don't think these things are completely true.

    First off, The guys are just as attractive as any other well drawn anime character and their bodies are actually pretty accurate based of off competitive swimmers (watch the olympics peeps). Also its a cartoon so people ...

    Cool down on a hot summer with Free!
    I was super pleased with the first episode and looking forward to more. The main reason for why I'm watching this is because there are hot boys, but I'm also looking forward to a swimming sport anime. When I watched the 1st episode, I found out this anime is one of a kind. It has a competitive feel, but not as much as others like Kuroko no Basket. Rather, it also a little bit of slice of life. ...
