  • 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 ...

  • Pleasantly Surprised!
    I'll be honest, I wasn't expecting much from this anime. I figured it would just be some silly show about hot (and shirtless) boys who swim... Boy, was I wrong! Sure, there's quite a bit of fanservice, but it's much more than that. The plot is surprisingly solid, the characters are super lovable, and the animation is really beautiful. I ended up binge watching the entire series in less than two ...

  • My Latest Obsession and All-Time Favourite
    Free! is legitamately my favourite anime, and will probably be for a long time, for a number of different reasons.

    Despite it being considered 'fan-service', Free! has an amazing storyline about self-development and the bonds shared within doing the things we love (in this case, swimming). What also made this anime so special was that it affected me on a personal level. It also motivated me to ...

  • Not so bad as it seems.
    The story line is actually really good and an anime like this deserves that kind of recognition. Also, it doesn't matter what gender you are, regardless, this is a pretty good anime. All the characters have unique characterization/personality that just fits. Graphics are not so bad either, I would definitely recommend watching.

    Free! Helped Me Remember Why I Love Anime
    Free! Eternal Summer is a wonderfully drawn story with intriguing concepts and engaging characters. I watched it when I had been going through a dry spell of no anime, and after I was done I could not remember why I stopped watching shows like this. Seeing the whole gang overcome challenges and help each other through life issues was inspiring and got me back into doing what I love ...

    Be free: By freely choosing to not watch the dub of this amazing show
    Okay, this anime is fantastic, and has beautiful relationships.But dear god,
    I am warning all the newcomers of anime or anyone who prefers watching it in English; I'm not knocking your preference, but if you watch this in dub you will do yourself a disservice. It exists. They have now put it on crunchyroll. Do not. Watch it.
    It does not only complete turn the characters into alternate versions ...
