    Surprisingly great!!
    While some people might be turned off by the male fan-service, the first episode already delivers good character development, great and memorable moments and fantastic animation. I for one think it's great that women and gay males have a high budget show that caters to them, shows like K-ON! tend to only appeal to the stereotypical otaku/avid male anime viewer.

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Men Swimming is the best thing
    Men Swimming bro, what more do you want?

    Dis some sexy stuff right here, better get yo booty over here and watch.

    Although, in all seriousness, this anime is basically an every day Moe anime, but everything is reversed. Watching grown, muscular, men swimming is something that anyone would enjoy. Unless you're so afraid of questioning your sexuality, I suggest you watch this. Seeing as this ...

    Free - It's about Teamwork, Camaraderie, and Friendship
    Free is a great anime about Teamwork, Camaraderie, and Friendship. It's not a "BL" as some seem to have labeled it. It's friends who are passionate about swimming, and the natural talents and hard work each one brings to the sport, and how they synergize as a team and as rivals.

    This anime really reminded me of 'Kuroko's Basketball" (http://www.crunchyroll.com/kurokos-basketball) in ...

    Just Reinforcing the Fact That Anyone Can Enjoy This
    As a male in his early 20s, I can say with utmost sincerity that I really enjoyed this anime. It had great animation, music, and characters. One might argue that the plot-line of this show is overly simplistic and the characters are 2-dimensional but honestly, that's part of the show's charm. I feel like Free! can be compared to an anime like K-On because of its heavy focus on the friendship and ...

    Pleasantly Surprised
    I thought for sure this show would be homoerotic to the max. It's what turned me off from watching it until the last episode was about to air. However, once I started, I instantly fell in love with the show. It's not a masterpiece, but it's pretty well done. The characters are interesting and their development is done decently (for the most part). The anime has a lot of comedy and drama that just ...
