  • Should Be Called "FEELS!"
    As a woman who generally hates sports, and sports anime, I wasn't expecting to enjoy this going into it, I really wasn't. I wanted to hate it, I did. I tried so very desperately to. I was only watching it because my best friend told me to keep an open mind, and that this anime would rock my world. I scoffed, I did. I truly did. But he was right. I came to love these characters and their incredible ...

    It's worth watching!
    At the beginning it will be slow and it will take a while to get connected with all the characters. Sure, you will hate them sometimes but most of the times your love to them at the very end. The hurt, pain, sadness, and happiness were be there but at the end it will be all worth it. The final result of this series is perfect and it gives you everything you ever wanted. It's worth watching!

  • Amazing Anime, shouldn't have been so judgemental
    So when I originally heard of this anime all I could think of was the art style and how it was purely fangirl material, made for the girls that just wanted to see naked anime men but then I actually thought, well hey they are swimmers so maybe they just look like that to fit the show.
    I was absolutely right and I must say this has certainly made my top list of animes since I watched it. From the ...

    Dat Swimming Anime Tho
    This show really took me by surprise. When it first came out, it was mainly just known as that "swimming anime", and I decided to watch it, because it seemed kind of funny. An anime about swimming, seems kind of weird, right?

    But, as I started watching it more and more, the story started to pull me in and then I realized I couldn't stop watching it.

    The anime may be about swimming, but ...

    Fun and Lovable Characters
    I really do love Free!
    The characters are so diverse, and the way in which they develop is great.
    It is a beautiful anime in terms of FPS and art quality.

    Free! is fun, fast paced, and funny, making you want to keep on watching episode after episode after episode.

    It made me laugh, and they are all so lovable, and the friendships are admirable!
    Its great to see the males get objectified ...

  • More shoujo than not, I think.
    Well, there's only 2 women & one's a teacher. The lone girl is never objectified, never seen in a swimming suit, & none of the main characters are interested in her at all, but two minor character are. She ogles over guys' muscles & calls all of the shots.

    The men spend most of their time posing in nothing but swim shorts & teasings fujoshis with their over-the-top friend angst. There's really ...

  • An anime about life: It's in my top 5!
    Not only are the characters great, but the art is painfully good. The makers care a lot about how this looks! This isn't just a story about a swim club. It's about friendship, finding yourself, and things that everyone struggles with growing up. Season 1 is great, but I will say -- HANDS DOWN -- season 2 is better, so much so that you can just skip S1 if you want and go straight to 2. If you are a ...
