  • Remember when this was a joke?
    I remember being on tumblr and seeing so many people(mostly men) griping about this series. But I feel like Kyoani took this show seriously and really did their bests to make this a high quality series like their more moe series.
    Sure there's fan service with shirtless men and sparkles but they really toned it down after episode 6 of the first series. I like that it played us all in a way by ...

  • Dive into the feels with this anime! <3
    This anime isn't just looks and fan service.
    There is actually a lot of character development and a very solid plot. Its truly inspiring and youre never bored! Its so entertaining and hilarious but can be heart wrenching as well. What else could you ask for?

  • And I hereby declare...
    Great plot, great screen art, great development, great characters, great fan service, great yaoi, great everything. I've been recommended this anime for quite a long time now, just simply didn't see the point as I'm usually into more action and drama. Saw this on Crunchyroll one day while surfing through trending animes, and decidedly checked it out. I didn't think swimming is all that ...

    It's about friendship!
    I really love the story line . Many people think it's a yaoi anime or something like that but for me I think it's about friendship and how strong their friendship are . It's a very meaningful anime . It teaches us what friendship really are . Always together in happy or sad times . That's really something !

    For the team ☆♡!

  • Great! Absolute Favorite!
    This anime kills me. Having to wait for a new episode every week, and when it does come out, you are not disappointed. Amazing! You will fall in love with the characters, even if you think they start out a little bit mean or bad. It isn't just fanservice for girls, guys can watch it too and enjoy it. At times episodes are calm and funny, but can be intense the next (the swim races! I'm not the ...

  • My Review of the First Season
    This is my review for the first season. I can't review the entire show, because there are very stark differences between the two seasons.

    When I first started watching this show, I was very iffy. It wasn't shonen like Bleach, Death Note, and Naruto, which are anime shows I like. After watching the first few episodes, however, I was hooked. The first season is amazing. When you watch this ...

    This Show Makes Me Want More
    I love this show! I may always start like this but for the show that I do, I really enjoy them that much.I have tried and tried again to be really good at swimming but it isn't my cup of tea. I love the anticipation of the races, the evolving plot, and the extensive characters. It makes swimming really excitable.

    I recommend this show to anyone who loves excitement and MUSCLES! (LOL)

  • The story of a swimmer, taken a new way.
    This anime holds a special place in my heart since I'm a swimmer myself, and I think it's relate-able. My swim captain last year was a backstroker, my friend was only swimming freestyle all year, I was the butterflier of the team, and I had a good friend, spunky and all, that did breaststroke. However, outside the amazing depiction of how it feels to swim and how relate-able it is to me, I'm not ...

    It's just a tier above an anime-to-kill-time-for category
    Free certainly has it's charming moments and can be pretty heartwarming. And when it's funny, it's funny.

    I get that the fan service is what really makes it so popular, but to the creators' credit, they seem to be completely aware of having a show where most of the cast is usually topless and wet, and they take full advantage of that. It's also pretty refreshing to see the male ...
