    Totally straight, totally male, totally love it
    I haven't watched anime for years, but when I heard about an anime about swimming, and saw that it had some great animation, I had to check it out since I used to swim.

    I was surprised. This show is really enjoyable to watch, it has some great characters and interesting social interactions between them. On the surface it comes off as gay, but I really like the bond that these guys have, and in ...

    More than just pretty boys.
    SO I totally hoped the band wagon with this one and I am so glad I did. At first I just did because well hello pretty boys! But then I got pulled in. There is legit plot here people! Yes real plot. I was shocked too. And like all good animes I cried at the end. I really hope they do a second season though because I still have a lot of questions that are unanswered. I am sure the fan base would ...

    A Fun Slice of Life Anime
    This is actually a pretty good slice-of-life anime and I’m glad my friends Todd and Ali recommended it to me. Normally I don’t watch that many slice-of-life animes, but I enjoyed this one. I got really into it and even started shouting at my computer whenever they were having a swimming match. Each character has a distinctive personality and the supporting characters like Gou/Kou and Ama-chan were ...

    Swim fast and free, to be the man you really want to be
    While there are a lot of fan service elements to the show, and the animation can at times feel a bit off from what is natural movement of male bodies and proportions, It's very nicely drawn and has a real flair for study of movement in a body of water. The story is what is really brilliant with this series, though, dealing with the forming, storming and norming of a group that has an interest in ...

    Not what I was expecting
    Honestly, I had no idea how this anime would turn out and I thought (like probably most people) that it would be a moe blob anime like K-On! However, that really isn't the case. While K-On tried to be a music anime, with only a couple of songs to really call it that, Free! is for sure a sports anime. Sure, there is fanservice, but who didn't expect that.

    Characters:
    The characters are ...

    I'm a crybaby and like halfnaked guys
    Omg! Can't believe it has already ended and the last episode was so emotional CRIES
    SO MANY FEELS!! Diggin' this swimming shit, never thought I would like it. Never judge an anime by it's pic-cover and theme.

    aaaaaaaand can Seijuro and Gou please be together??
    Crossing fingers for a second season!

    swimming anime say yes
    While many liked it for the fan service. i liked the fact that it was a coming of age anime about what you do with your life. high school where people start to ask or answer the question and it nice that there a anime that does that. while there are other ones see my reviews on some other ones on the site. i think it tells a different story because it from the perspective of sports. your never as ...

    Making, Building, and Mending Friendships
    One of my acquaintances refers to this show as Swimbros, and that is a great summary of what it is. Granted, Free! is a show about swimming, and swimming figures into the plot at almost every angle, but it is fundamentally about a group of guys and the friendships that they share as they come together as a team. Yes, this is trotting out the old nakama trope that plagues anime ...
