    Sweet, Funny, and Exciting
    I am usually not into sports anime, or any "yaoi" related stuff(whether major or minor) but I had heard really good reviews on this anime, and it didn't hurt that the characters are so cute*3* So I checked it out and I was hooked by the first episode. I could see why some people could receive this anime as a very toned down 'yaoi' but I saw it more as a story of childhood friendships that were ...

    Feel Free to Watch (Sorry for the bad pun)
    I wasn't really sure what to think of this anime when my friend described it to me, she made it sound a bit like a yaoi anime. But I found out that it isn't really yaoi, it can just be taken that way if you're looking for it. Its a great anime that was very enjoyable to watch. It doesn't go to far with jokes and even if you don't like swimming you can probably relate to the characters through some ...

    Perfect. What more can I say?
    I finished this entire season in 2 days (could have been 1 if it weren't for my friends birthday). I'm still attached to these characters and I don't think my brain understands that I've finished this entire thing. Watch it, you won't regret it.

    Has fluid animation, a great line of voice actors and a respectable plot
    Free! is an amazing show and if there was a second season, I'd definitely watch it. This anime is hilarious, clever, and has great characters. I really enjoyed the soundtrack for this anime as well as the voice acting. If you're male or female, and you're looking for a hilarious anime, stop and watch this. It's not a yaoi but it could be mistaken for that since all the main characters are boys and ...

    Making, Building, and Mending Friendships
    One of my acquaintances refers to this show as Swimbros, and that is a great summary of what it is. Granted, Free! is a show about swimming, and swimming figures into the plot at almost every angle, but it is fundamentally about a group of guys and the friendships that they share as they come together as a team. Yes, this is trotting out the old nakama trope that plagues anime ...

    I wasn't supposed to get so emotionally invested in an anime about swimming!
    I'm not going to lie: the reason I started watching Free! was because of the cute swimmer boys. I wanted a light-hearted anime with attractive characters that was fun to watch. I got that, but I also got so much more. Beneath the light-hearted atmosphere and obvious fanservice muscle shots, Free! is a show with a lot of heart. Throughout the first season of this show, I found myself very ...

    That was pretty nice!
    Free! was a pretty darn good anime though they should have concentrated more on the actual swimming (and some of their swimming animations had pretty bad technique though I maybe am being a little harsh on that one ). All in all it was very good! If you're wondering should you watch it or not, just watch it! Very much worth the while!

    Amazing Anime Made me so Happy <3
    The guys are hot.
    They aren't boring, there's strong relationship bonds
    A lot of fan service, but there's an even stronger storyline and it moves along very nicely
    The second season next summer has a lot to live up to! Rin annoyed me a lot, but in the end he grew on me.
    There was a lot of character development and this is definitely not boring.
