    I swear I'm not a defensive fan girl when I say...
    Well...yeah, we see cute half-naked boys with amazingly structured bodies, but the anime is actually getting interesting in terms of the story and characters. What? Is that something a defensive fan girl says? Perhaps haha but I'm being honest here. I really liked how in the second episode I started to see the background story revealing itself more. And a huge plus is that I'm really into swimming ...

    Fun stuff - definitely worth watching!
    The animation in this show is absolutely gorgeous. I love the water and they really capture swimming in general. Likable cast, too. I look forward to new episodes - glad they decided to make this into something. Much as the, ahem, fanservice portion of this makes me laugh, I legitimately think they have a decent storyline going already.

    Enough with all this Yaoi b.s
    This is a sports anime, no different than any other sports anime in the past. Like most sports anime it is a mostly male cast with your standard female manager. Why people are exclaiming its Yaoi is beyond me. I dont recall screams of "Its Yaoi!" when Kuroko aired. The guys dig that show, yet it has the same amount of bromance as Free. Is it because the dudes in Free! are shirtless? Is that where ...

    Amazing in spite of and because of the fanservice
    If you like guys, this is your show; if you don't like guys, this is still your show, as the animation is absolutely gorgeous and the story seems to be doing ok. This anime feels very vibrant and optimistic, with friendly rivalry and tarnished childhood friendships being the center of the plot movement. It's not a deep anime, but it's extremely entertaining and has so much eye candy. In short, ...

    I can definitely watch MORE of this!
    I was wowed by the animation, and the strong personalities of the characters! Someone was complaining about the boys sounding like girls, but don't they use female voice actors for children anyway?? That's what gives them the 'cuteness' for the age they're portraying. There's 3 more hours until the next episode, and I can't WAIT!! >_<

    Oh, and if you have Crunchyroll on Apple TV, it looks ...

    Don't think it's a yaoi, and if it is, so what?
    As everyone here mentions, it's full of fan-service for girls. I thoroughly enjoy it, and think it's a pretty nice relaxing anime. I've heard of many boys who also like it.
    But anyway, ladies, if you wish to please both your eyes and ovaries, watch it!

    i'm a 24 year old female and this anime was a life changer.....
    I went into this anime with like, zero expectations. It seemed like it was really geared towards younger teen girls, which it definitely is but there's more to it that appeals to adults. I really only decided to watch it because it kept popping up on my tumblr dash over and over. Reading the synopsis I didn't think I'd make it past the first episode but I am SO glad I gave it a shot. It took me ...

    A cool anime that isn't hentai, I promise!
    A lot of people have criticized Free! for being the Magic Mike of anime, but it's a lot more than that. Free! has a lot of shirtless, ripped, and impossibly handsome dudes, but that doesn't mean that it's a bad series. Every character is interesting. They don't just sit around in the background and collect dust. The art is extremely well done and the animation is top notch. The soundtrack is worth ...

    A different type of anime...
    When I began to watch this, my intentions were entirely different. I was referred to this by a friend because, and I quote, "There are lots of hot anime guys in this one!" Never did I expect to fall in love with the story and all the characters. I will admit that this anime was well paced and, at times, left you sitting at the edge of your seat. The animation is wonderful, and the attention to ...

    It's about friendship!
    I really love the story line . Many people think it's a yaoi anime or something like that but for me I think it's about friendship and how strong their friendship are . It's a very meaningful anime . It teaches us what friendship really are . Always together in happy or sad times . That's really something !

    For the team ☆♡!
