    Free!: Summer 2013 AOTS
    This anime exceeded any expectations I had for it. The story, character development, and music were all beautifully done. It isn't just an anime about shirtless guys, it's about friendship and teamwork.

    One of my favourite animes.
    I actually dislike a lot that everyone thinks they're all gay or that the anime was made for the yaoi.
    You got it wrong, actually the anime was created because of the fanservice for girls. Yet, putting that aside, I loved more the plot. No, not that kind of plot (the one of everyone undressing for girls to watch the anatomy). I mean the real plot. The plot of four childhood friends that ...

    This is honestly the most beautiful looking animeI have ever watched. even if you don't like the story line (which seems to be very homoerotic, lol) just watch it for the beautiful animation. its worth it.

    Went in thinking FAN SERVICE and ended up having it OWN my SOUL! X D
    I thought...this was going to be all cute, cuddly and LIGHT. It ended up showing me DEPTH and happiness and strangely I did not notice any Fan Service after a while..and re-watching each episode upwards to 3 to 6 times, no LESS! X D I have become officially ADDICTED to the music, moods and interactions! EVERYTHING is so beautiful about this show! The friendships are quite STRONG and they ...

    Free! A definate watch. A++
    I won't lie, what first drew me to the show was the promise of sexy and muscled guys. But what made me tune in to watch it week after week was much more. Such as the gorgeous animation. I mean just look at the water.... look at it.... Good.
    The interesting story. I wouldn't call this a sports anime, i'd say it's more of a slice of life with sports and comedy as well.
    And the wonderful ...

    Touching, Wonderful, Funny, Heartfelt, and Fantastic!
    This show can easily be mistaken as a "Sports" Anime, so if sports Anime is a shut down for you DON'T turn away. I absolutely loved this show from start to finish! I laughed, I cried, and leapt out of my chair with cheers, and wanted more more more.

    5 stars and two thumbs up!

    It was fun anime to watch
    First of all, this anime has wonderful animation. I am sure, animators who worked on this, enjoyed it immensely.
    I think it was funny and heartwarming. The story develops with each episode and keeps you interested. Oh, and all boys are cute. Cute boys in swimming trunks are even better.
    I saw few posts that said it's yaoi. It's most definitely NOT. I wouldn't even call this shounen-ai. I mean ...

    "It's beautiful!" -Rei~
    Well I'm not sure if Rei even said that, but I know that swimming is beautiful. This is my second sports anime I've ever watched. I love the animation especially when this and K-ON is made by the same studio??? I'm impressed. I love how they swam and I couldn't even wait every time each episode ended. I'm so sad this had to end, but at the end, it said "See you next summer!" COULD THIS BE A ...

    a lot better then what i first thought
    to be honest when i first just looked at the show and read the summary it didn't really appeal to me at all so i ignored it but after only a few episodes i noticed how popular it was getting so i decided to finally cave and watch the first episode to figure out what was drawing people in. well after the dramatic male strip tease of men ripping off their shirts to swim i totally got it lol i ...

    I Only Swim Free-style!
    This show is so beautiful. Call me a fangirl who's a sucker for triceps but I love everything about this anime! The emotional tension between Rin and Haru, the funny moments between the swim team, and let's not forget Gou (or Kou as she wants to be addressed)! Pure bliss~<3

    Please come out with a 2nd Season!
    "See you next Summer!"
    Don't play with my heart this way!
