    A REALISTIC AND GOOD ANIME
    Whenever my friends mentioned Free!, I use to turn up my nose of it. I mean, it's just half naked guys swimming right? WRONG.
    First, a summary. Haruka (aka Haru), Makoto, Nagisa, and Rin used to be on the same swim team when they were kids. Rin moved to Australia to acheive his dream of becoming an Olympic swimmer. He then comes back to attend Samezuka Academy when the other boys are in their ...

  • The Sports Anime That Makes Me Watch Sports Anime.
    This anime turned out really well. I had never watched a sports anime before this one and now it has got me watching many others. I would wait every week for a new episode and I was never disappointed. This anime had me hooked. The story, the art, the characters, everything about this anime is intriguing. At first I didn't know what I was getting into, but trust me once you start watching, you ...

  • Hakamii's Review of Free!
    I can't tell you how much I enjoy reading sports manga and watching sports related shows. I was also a competitive swimmer way back in highschool, so when I saw that an anime was coming out about SWIMMING?! Oh yeah, I just had to watch it. Right from the get go I was mortified, the first episode was pretty much showing off the 'eye candy' cast and establishing the background that sets up the ...

  • I'm Loving this show!
    This show is not for any one gender or age group, I believe that this show is for any and all comers! The characters portray a passion for their sport, their stumbles, confusion, and general decisions based on life events. I believe that any person can watch this show and be all for the swimmers!

  • I can't stop liking this anime!
    Wow okay, where do I start?! I remember clicking on the play button for season 1's episode 1 and questioning my life when I heard Haru describe how the water feels when you thrust your fingers into it. O.o Little did I know, it was going to control my life (and my purse) for a while.

    I originally thought this anime was just going to be a funny fanservice-y show to help me recover from Attack ...

  • Well, It's Hard to Know What to Expect with a Show Like This.
    I came off a first season that was a fun ride with some friends trying to find friendship in a swimming pool. I come into a second season where everyone has decided that friendship is great, but the future is now of the uttermost importance. The characters are still there fun and interesting selves (well... everyone besides Haru). If there was one drastic change in this last season, it was how ...

  • This show is awesome... and yes I AM A GUY!
    This show is funny and interesting. I've never been one for sports shows but this show is just a nice watch. It has drama, comedy, friendship, everything that a great show should have. And, yes the fan service can be irritating at times but after awhile I was just like whatever when they took their tops off. I don't really care anymore and people SHOULD watch this show for the substance rather ...

    Do You Even Need to Read This
    This show is funny, gorgeous, emotional, fulfilling, well written, well thought out, well animated, well acted, intense, fun, exciting, heart stopping, addictive, a tear-jerker, bromantic to the extreme, and ties everything up well at the end.

    Then of course, the entirety of the internet has probably told you this already, so why are reading this? Just start watching it already!

    i'm a 24 year old female and this anime was a life changer.....
    I went into this anime with like, zero expectations. It seemed like it was really geared towards younger teen girls, which it definitely is but there's more to it that appeals to adults. I really only decided to watch it because it kept popping up on my tumblr dash over and over. Reading the synopsis I didn't think I'd make it past the first episode but I am SO glad I gave it a shot. It took me ...

    Sports Anime + Fanservice
    Free! is pretty obviously a sports anime about boys for girls. There are lots of pretty shots of the boys, including a part of one episode totally devoted to swim suit shopping. Honestly, it's a cute show and it's nice to see fan service catering to the female demographic for a change.

    That being said, I only watched the first season of this anime. While the characters are generally likable, ...
