  • Absolutely Adorable!
    I just have to be honest with you guys, this show, is so adorable! in the non-homosexual swimming way. The interactions between these dorks are very funny! Especially Nagisa and Rei's relationship. I was just overwhelmed by the power of friendship.

    Best friend forever!
    Many people who watch this will think that it is purely fan service....Hot guys...swimsuits... and almost homo relationships. But really...aren't all friendships seen this way? Well not the hot guy and swimsuit part...unless...X3 ANYWAY! Don't get hung up on those factors when watching this anime. Instead think of how each person may relate to some, if not all, of your closest friends. By the end ...

    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 ...

  • Best Bromance and eye candy!!!!
    I usually look for Shoujo and Romance genres, no wonder this one slipped out of my anime radar! I totally fell in love from the very start and Haru also reminded me of why I liked swimming so much in the first place.

    Also great for fangirling with your friends if you're looking for a visually beautiful anime series with beautiful guys, beautiful bodies and beautiful bromance. ;D

    One of the best anime of 2013
    Aside from Attack on Titan, Free! was the only other anime worth watching last year. I highly recommend it to anyone who will listen to me.

    Besides all of the amazing things about it, from the animation to the plot itself, I consider the fact that it was so easy to watch one of it's best features. You can sit back, relax and watch an episode without having to worry about your feels being ...

  • I love this show, they should make more!!
    This is one of the best animes I have watched. When it was over I felt lost for what I should have watched. I hope that they make more because it helped me realize how obsessed I became of this show. OR at least show more of when they were younger!! I need more of the hope and courage they gave me to strive for excellence but not to hurt others in the process. Team is all you need. A team of ...

    Great Anime For Fangirls!
    This anime was really good, but it's best not to watch in front of your siblings ( or parents xD ), because you'll hear something like" Y/N, quit watching shirtless anime men and take the trash out! " Or something like that. xD It's not only anime for girls, it can be for guys to.

  • This anime is just so cute!
    This show is one of my favorites! Humor and a big chunk of bromance, which give the anime it's charm. Sometimes, the animation is wonderful, sometimes it could improve. The storyline may not be well developed as for instance Naruto, but I like that. Too long or too developed storylines can sometimes be tiring, and these more humble ones can give a break from the ordinary day-to-day-life.

    Not ...

    Wish there were more eps
    Wish there was more of this series. I can see it being a hard anime to keep up for longer than 12 episodes but I think they could make it work. Caught sight of this anime via a clip in an AMV. Gotta say, it was the swimming that caught my eye and when I did the research ...well, let's say Haruka comes to the forefront - A LOT.

    I am female so I'll probably be accused of liking it just for ...

    Not only for women..
    Although I've read that this anime was drawn for the intended female audience, the story itself has a great layout and many males and females alike can relate with the characters within the plot.

    No Yaoi or Bara in case you were wondering. It's a story of four friends + extra. Unlike most sports-related anime I've watched, this one had a very consistent and progressive outline.

    There is no ...
