  • Amazing Anime, shouldn't have been so judgemental
    So when I originally heard of this anime all I could think of was the art style and how it was purely fangirl material, made for the girls that just wanted to see naked anime men but then I actually thought, well hey they are swimmers so maybe they just look like that to fit the show.
    I was absolutely right and I must say this has certainly made my top list of animes since I watched it. From the ...

  • Dat Swimming Anime Tho
    This show really took me by surprise. When it first came out, it was mainly just known as that "swimming anime", and I decided to watch it, because it seemed kind of funny. An anime about swimming, seems kind of weird, right?

    But, as I started watching it more and more, the story started to pull me in and then I realized I couldn't stop watching it.

    The anime may be about swimming, but ...

    Fun and Lovable Characters
    I really do love Free!
    The characters are so diverse, and the way in which they develop is great.
    It is a beautiful anime in terms of FPS and art quality.

    Free! is fun, fast paced, and funny, making you want to keep on watching episode after episode after episode.

    It made me laugh, and they are all so lovable, and the friendships are admirable!
    Its great to see the males get objectified ...

  • More shoujo than not, I think.
    Well, there's only 2 women & one's a teacher. The lone girl is never objectified, never seen in a swimming suit, & none of the main characters are interested in her at all, but two minor character are. She ogles over guys' muscles & calls all of the shots.

    The men spend most of their time posing in nothing but swim shorts & teasings fujoshis with their over-the-top friend angst. There's really ...

  • An anime about life: It's in my top 5!
    Not only are the characters great, but the art is painfully good. The makers care a lot about how this looks! This isn't just a story about a swim club. It's about friendship, finding yourself, and things that everyone struggles with growing up. Season 1 is great, but I will say -- HANDS DOWN -- season 2 is better, so much so that you can just skip S1 if you want and go straight to 2. If you are a ...

  • Swimming: If You Enjoy It, You Will Watch It
    I don't think people should be convinced that just because it's a swimming anime with a dominate cast of shirtless men, it's only for girls. There are anime that I like that is primarily geared towards a male audience, but as a female viewer I still enjoy them (blood, guts, and glory!).

    While I'll admit that what got me initially interested from the start were male swimmers, it's not the only ...

  • Great Anime, Great Characters
    I really like the show because it not only has interesting characters, it has heart. You actually come to care about all of them and you find yourself rooting for them and enjoying how much they celebrate friendship. The artwork is beautiful as well and the soundtrack for it is terrific. Overall, a great anime to watch.
