    Fan service like you've never seen before
    After watching the first episode of this anime, I'm in high hopes and is crossing my fingers for this to be another successful production by KyoAni. So far, the plot is nothing to look forward to since its mainly about a group of guys wanting to compete through swimming, but I will tell you this show is vastly different from other animes I've seen (so far). The amount of fan service this show ...

    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! a truly touching Anime.
    This... THIS! anime... is simply amazing! From start of season 1 to ending of season 2. The art is beautiful, the story is excellent. the character development was astonishing!
    I really felt connecting with the cast as if i was with them every day.
    The closure was sad yet happy. i feel as if they completely ended the show, however i wouldn't mind if they picked it back up and continued. All in ...

    i'm a 24 year old female and this anime was a life changer.....
    I went into this anime with like, zero expectations. It seemed like it was really geared towards younger teen girls, which it definitely is but there's more to it that appeals to adults. I really only decided to watch it because it kept popping up on my tumblr dash over and over. Reading the synopsis I didn't think I'd make it past the first episode but I am SO glad I gave it a shot. It took me ...

    For the Team! For the Future!
    Free! is such an exceptional anime! Upfront it may seem to be only fan service for ladies but in reality this show is so much more than that. It's gives us a moral and gives us a push in our daily lives. Free! tells us not to fear the future but to embrace it, it gives hope to people who are lost in what to do next. That's why this anime should be watched and given a chance. Every ...

    This Show Makes Me Want More
    I love this show! I may always start like this but for the show that I do, I really enjoy them that much.I have tried and tried again to be really good at swimming but it isn't my cup of tea. I love the anticipation of the races, the evolving plot, and the extensive characters. It makes swimming really excitable.

    I recommend this show to anyone who loves excitement and MUSCLES! (LOL)

    It's just a tier above an anime-to-kill-time-for category
    Free certainly has it's charming moments and can be pretty heartwarming. And when it's funny, it's funny.

    I get that the fan service is what really makes it so popular, but to the creators' credit, they seem to be completely aware of having a show where most of the cast is usually topless and wet, and they take full advantage of that. It's also pretty refreshing to see the male ...

    So much friendship, so much heartbreak!
    I was excited when I saw the first previews of the first season. I recommend this anime to anyone and everyone. It has so much humor, it will make you smile, cry, laugh, ache, and feel every emotion in between. The characters are loveable, and the antagonists were even hard to hate. This isn't just a show for girls to look at nice swimmer bodies, everyone needs to watch this anime. It has so much ...
