  • God I love this show!
    Another sports anime that is great! I watched this a while back and I love it so much! I wish there was more! This is not for someone seeking and action packed violent show(clearly). Although I do enjoy those this was still a great show. I really connect with Haruka with his love of water- as I usually feel more at home in the water on land. I quit swimming last year, but I watched it while I was ...

  • A sincere, immersive story of friendship.
    This story has great characters who are portrayed exquisitely through amazing animation quality and voice acting. From subtle expressions to grand moments, it was a beautiful, surreal experience that swept me away. The 'fanservice' was not abundant or distractive - basically fanservice done right.

  • Surprisingly Engaging
    I know a lot of my friends liked this series, but I still wasn't expecting much - I'm not very into sports anime in general. I was amazed - I watched the whole first season in one day! It's somehow very engaging, and the artwork is beautiful (those abs~). I'm going to be starting the second season very soon. I hope it's as interesting as the first season!

  • Slow at first but engrossing
    This show was a bit slow at first but after the fourth episode it successfully pulled me in. All of the characters are well written and highly amusing. The on going jokes through out the whole series made for some good laughs. I would highly recommend this show for everyone though probably more so for those who enjoy motivational anime.

  • Great, Feel Good Show
    This show is pretty simple in that it's a feel good sports anime. It gets a little bit overly dramatic at times, but that's part of the appeal in this kind of show. I think it perfectly represents its genre, so if this is your type of show, then go for it! You won't be disappointed.

  • Not just fan service
    I remember watching the first 15 minutes of the first episode and thinking...this guy Haru seems weird...but I stuck with it and I am so glad I did. It is such a touching story of friendship. Yes, the fan service is there and so are the muscles but it's all in fun. The focus is on the relationships between the guys. Has great character development and you get to really like these guys and want to ...

  • OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Out of all the animes I've watched...this has got to be the best one yet!! I love the storyline and the conflicts the characters go through. I also love the way the episodes are kind of like short stories with the characters while they still all connect to each other. The title shows how baffled I was. I would've said OMG if I wasn't speechless after finishing the anime. (including Free! Iwatobi ...

  • Technically, You Could Say it Changed My Life
    Okay, first of all, this is a great series with beautiful animation and wonderful character development. Like, seriously, the character development is on point.

    Now, here's how it sort of changed my life. I've struggled with my weight all my life, and a while ago, I kind of just gave up and stopped trying altogether. I figured, if I've been unsuccessful for so long, then why try, right?
    Well, ...

  • Truly Beautiful and...
    intriguing. I wish it hadn't ended, but I'm ok with it since the ending was so beautiful. I still remember the characters' names which surprises even me. But, all jokes aside, I think this series had a beautiful storyline to it. The boys each have their own past which is another thing that kept me watching. Don't be fooled because you're in for a great show. There are just too many words to ...
