    What's so amazing about it?
    Honestly, this anime isn't as amazing as everyone makes it seem. I still watch the series, but it won't bother me at all if it ended already. It's basically just fan service with not much of an actual plot. I don't really feel any emotional attachment to the characters like I do with most animes. The problems that the characters face in the anime are unrealistic and don't really seem to matter to ...

    FREE SUMMER WEDNESDAY!
    This anime shows the spirit of summer, its an awesome mix of slice of life/sports anime, the animation and characters are just awesome, it isn't just about cute boys that can swim, the boys all have their own characters, and all mesh together very nicely, I recommend this anime to anyone, I know guys are like "But this is not for straight guys" that is not the main focus, sure they put some of ...

  • The love child of slice of life and sports anime
    I honestly had so much fun watching this anime it is not even funny. this show combine both the slice of life genre and the sports anime genre into a really fun and absolutely beautiful series. The series is really funny and even kind of heart warming at times.

    Love this show so much!!!!!!!
    Love this show! It just makes me want to swim and have fun with my friends. It is the perfect show for the summer. The ending is also amazing, I think its so cool that the voice actors are the singers of the song. Future Fish! Most definitely in my top five favorite shows of the summer!

    It got kinda boring....
    I do understand why people hype this show... But it felt kinda played off and unentertaining for me. It seemed they created different types of characters to satisfy the fan base... Eh, I just didn't connect to the story line. I was just watching it for the eye candy, honestly, just like the rest of you guys.... "=3=

    Men Swimming is the best thing
    Men Swimming bro, what more do you want?

    Dis some sexy stuff right here, better get yo booty over here and watch.

    Although, in all seriousness, this anime is basically an every day Moe anime, but everything is reversed. Watching grown, muscular, men swimming is something that anyone would enjoy. Unless you're so afraid of questioning your sexuality, I suggest you watch this. Seeing as this ...

  • Enjoyable, doesn't take itself too seriously
    Yes, the fan service is strong in this one. However, this isn't a particular problem with me. Sometimes I see this show as a parody of every other anime. The characters may seem pretty bland - but that seems to play off the idea of each character being an archetype. Watching the interactions between characters gives more subtle cues of their personalities.
    Overall, I don't expect a super dramatic ...

  • Fanservice + (Magical swim team)
    At first I thought I would enjoy this show because of the incredibly attractive (read: shirtless) cast. However, time and time again I have found myself lured in by such a premise only to be incredibly disappointed. Free!, however, manages to add a grotesque amount of fanservice, but draws a fine line between this and the heartwarming slice of life tale it is telling. It weaves a warming tale of ...
