    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...
