    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.

    And in more ways than one!
    In a world where crappy, fanservice laden anime plague stream sites and Japanese telly waves... Kyoto Animation dares to step beyond the norm. This brave crew steps forth to tell us... young men, there's no need to feel down. Young men, pick yourselves off the ground. 'Cause, young men, you're in a new town. There's no need to be unhappy.

    IT'S FUN TO STAY AT THE- Oh wait, that's the Village ...

    Free!: Summer 2013 AOTS
    This anime exceeded any expectations I had for it. The story, character development, and music were all beautifully done. It isn't just an anime about shirtless guys, it's about friendship and teamwork.

    Touching, Wonderful, Funny, Heartfelt, and Fantastic!
    This show can easily be mistaken as a "Sports" Anime, so if sports Anime is a shut down for you DON'T turn away. I absolutely loved this show from start to finish! I laughed, I cried, and leapt out of my chair with cheers, and wanted more more more.

    5 stars and two thumbs up!

    It was fun anime to watch
    First of all, this anime has wonderful animation. I am sure, animators who worked on this, enjoyed it immensely.
    I think it was funny and heartwarming. The story develops with each episode and keeps you interested. Oh, and all boys are cute. Cute boys in swimming trunks are even better.
    I saw few posts that said it's yaoi. It's most definitely NOT. I wouldn't even call this shounen-ai. I mean ...

    "It's beautiful!" -Rei~
    Well I'm not sure if Rei even said that, but I know that swimming is beautiful. This is my second sports anime I've ever watched. I love the animation especially when this and K-ON is made by the same studio??? I'm impressed. I love how they swam and I couldn't even wait every time each episode ended. I'm so sad this had to end, but at the end, it said "See you next summer!" COULD THIS BE A ...

    a lot better then what i first thought
    to be honest when i first just looked at the show and read the summary it didn't really appeal to me at all so i ignored it but after only a few episodes i noticed how popular it was getting so i decided to finally cave and watch the first episode to figure out what was drawing people in. well after the dramatic male strip tease of men ripping off their shirts to swim i totally got it lol i ...

    I Only Swim Free-style!
    This show is so beautiful. Call me a fangirl who's a sucker for triceps but I love everything about this anime! The emotional tension between Rin and Haru, the funny moments between the swim team, and let's not forget Gou (or Kou as she wants to be addressed)! Pure bliss~<3

    Please come out with a 2nd Season!
    "See you next Summer!"
    Don't play with my heart this way!
