  • I Never Thought I'd Find Swimming So Interesting!
    Although the season finale of the first season had me in tears, I love this series. It has a pure story with lovable characters. Please do yourself a favor by watching this show. It's not just fan service but an interesting story with AMAZING animation.

  • Beautiful High School Boys Who Swim Well and Learn About Friendship
    Have you ever watched a show about a group of friends and wondered to yourself, "Why are Ross and Phoebe friends when they clearly don't like each other very much?" Obviously, it's just because they're in the same group.

    On the surface, "Free! Iwatobi Swim Club" is an anime about swimming that glorifies the male form in the same way that 95% of the rest of anime does with the female form. ...

  • Free! isn't just eye candy!
    Alright let's be real, the reason this anime is so popular is because of the boys, but I mean is that something to hate this anime for? No. The story is kind of simple, but I mean it's a good story and has a good pace. Some of the challenges in this series is alittle corny, but I mean its still a good anime to see. You have a good mix of characters and the animation is beautiful. If your looking ...

  • Best! Swim! Anime! Ever!
    This anime is the best swim anime I've ever seen. The characters are very creative and emotional for their love of swimming, and each other. They get into a lot of disagreements during the anime, but hey, no one is perfect. And I absolutely love how the so called "bad guy" was mean at first, but not in the end. He was just alone and heartbroken. I feel like a lot of people, (including me) could ...

  • A little somethin' for the ladies.
    Yeah sure you can watch it as "gratuitous shirtlessness to appeal to the girls" and dismiss it on that account, but if you stick with the show past the first couple of episodes, it will eventually open up into a pretty decent story. The characters are well written and well drawn, and surprisingly emotional towards one another (as friends, sorry my fellow yaoi fans).

    It's a good show and a ...

    Best Sports Anime Ever?!
    At first I expected this to be a simple sports anime but it turned out being such a good anime it has ranked into my top favourites! It's just so heart warming and inspiring and personally has inspired me to become a swimmer and to be free! I really recommend this to everyone and this definitely earns a 5 star rating from me!

  • Swimming and Friends - That's it!
    This show is all about high school kids trying to figure out who they are, what future they want for themselves, and making meaningful friendships along the way though the medium of a High School competitive swimming club. In fact, the writing is SO good that it's easy to care for ALL of the characters, protagonists and antagonists alike--so much so that I was even rooting for the team the ...

  • Simply amazing and brilliant!
    I'm someone who loves swimming and I'm in love with this show! The way they've captured the beauty of swimming is amazing. The characters themselves are wonderful and fun to watch. This show has made me more passionate about swimming than ever and thank you for that. Can't wait for the third season!!!
