  • Surprisingly Engaging
    I know a lot of my friends liked this series, but I still wasn't expecting much - I'm not very into sports anime in general. I was amazed - I watched the whole first season in one day! It's somehow very engaging, and the artwork is beautiful (those abs~). I'm going to be starting the second season very soon. I hope it's as interesting as the first season!

  • Slow at first but engrossing
    This show was a bit slow at first but after the fourth episode it successfully pulled me in. All of the characters are well written and highly amusing. The on going jokes through out the whole series made for some good laughs. I would highly recommend this show for everyone though probably more so for those who enjoy motivational anime.

  • Great, Feel Good Show
    This show is pretty simple in that it's a feel good sports anime. It gets a little bit overly dramatic at times, but that's part of the appeal in this kind of show. I think it perfectly represents its genre, so if this is your type of show, then go for it! You won't be disappointed.

  • Not just fan service
    I remember watching the first 15 minutes of the first episode and thinking...this guy Haru seems weird...but I stuck with it and I am so glad I did. It is such a touching story of friendship. Yes, the fan service is there and so are the muscles but it's all in fun. The focus is on the relationships between the guys. Has great character development and you get to really like these guys and want to ...

  • OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Out of all the animes I've watched...this has got to be the best one yet!! I love the storyline and the conflicts the characters go through. I also love the way the episodes are kind of like short stories with the characters while they still all connect to each other. The title shows how baffled I was. I would've said OMG if I wasn't speechless after finishing the anime. (including Free! Iwatobi ...

  • Technically, You Could Say it Changed My Life
    Okay, first of all, this is a great series with beautiful animation and wonderful character development. Like, seriously, the character development is on point.

    Now, here's how it sort of changed my life. I've struggled with my weight all my life, and a while ago, I kind of just gave up and stopped trying altogether. I figured, if I've been unsuccessful for so long, then why try, right?
    Well, ...

  • Truly Beautiful and...
    intriguing. I wish it hadn't ended, but I'm ok with it since the ending was so beautiful. I still remember the characters' names which surprises even me. But, all jokes aside, I think this series had a beautiful storyline to it. The boys each have their own past which is another thing that kept me watching. Don't be fooled because you're in for a great show. There are just too many words to ...

  • It's not just muscles I promise
    I know that people are hesitant to watch this because it seems ridiculous or they don't like sports. And I get that this isn't for everyone, but it is truly a good show with a good story.

    Now I’m a bit hazy on the first season, since it’s been a while, but even though it had its faults, it was still worth watching. The characters could be over the top at times, but overall I personally enjoyed ...

  • Pleasantly Surprised!
    I'll be honest, I wasn't expecting much from this anime. I figured it would just be some silly show about hot (and shirtless) boys who swim... Boy, was I wrong! Sure, there's quite a bit of fanservice, but it's much more than that. The plot is surprisingly solid, the characters are super lovable, and the animation is really beautiful. I ended up binge watching the entire series in less than two ...
