  • This is not yaoi, despite what all the other reviews are saying.
    This is also not a show just for girls. The animation is beautiful, and the friendships shown are just as beautiful. Rei-chan would be proud of this anime! My only complaint is that the characters are pretty predictable. The ending of both seasons were satisfying and left my heart all warm and fuzzy. This is an anime worth watching!

    This show is currently on my top list along with Tokyo Ghoul and Attack on Titan. I love the characters, my most favorite would be Makoto, Haru, and Rin... ugh I can't decide! I wish there were more episodes, good thing there's manga! A MUST WATCH! RECOMMENDED TO SPORT ANIME LOVERS

  • Amazing characters and character development
    I can only name a couple anime where every single character in the series (including background/lesser known characters) have layers upon layers of personality. Free! and Free! Eternal Summer are the top two. Just by watching the series once, I know the characters so well. I know how they would each react to different situations internally and externally. KyoAni, how'd you do that? To write/create ...

  • ~~In My Opinion?!!~~
    It's Okay to be Gay~!

    JK. But seriously, they may act like it. But lets all just take hints, and except the fact they are gay.. (a little). But you may also think that it is just a nice friendship bold bond. and thats okay! 'Free!' is really for anyone. Don't let others judge on your opinion

  • NOT ABOUT THE FANSERVICE!
    So I was very hesitant to watch this series, because I've heard numerous rumors about how it was fan serviced to the female viewers and because I was worried that the fan service would ultimately affect the quality and plot of the story. Being a dedicated swimmer for 12+ year of my life, I was worried that the fan service would make the sport aspect irrelevant and not important. BUT I WAS SO ...

  • A REALISTIC AND GOOD ANIME
    Whenever my friends mentioned Free!, I use to turn up my nose of it. I mean, it's just half naked guys swimming right? WRONG.
    First, a summary. Haruka (aka Haru), Makoto, Nagisa, and Rin used to be on the same swim team when they were kids. Rin moved to Australia to acheive his dream of becoming an Olympic swimmer. He then comes back to attend Samezuka Academy when the other boys are in their ...

  • The Sports Anime That Makes Me Watch Sports Anime.
    This anime turned out really well. I had never watched a sports anime before this one and now it has got me watching many others. I would wait every week for a new episode and I was never disappointed. This anime had me hooked. The story, the art, the characters, everything about this anime is intriguing. At first I didn't know what I was getting into, but trust me once you start watching, you ...

  • Hakamii's Review of Free!
    I can't tell you how much I enjoy reading sports manga and watching sports related shows. I was also a competitive swimmer way back in highschool, so when I saw that an anime was coming out about SWIMMING?! Oh yeah, I just had to watch it. Right from the get go I was mortified, the first episode was pretty much showing off the 'eye candy' cast and establishing the background that sets up the ...
