    "It's beautiful!" -Rei~
    Well I'm not sure if Rei even said that, but I know that swimming is beautiful. This is my second sports anime I've ever watched. I love the animation especially when this and K-ON is made by the same studio??? I'm impressed. I love how they swam and I couldn't even wait every time each episode ended. I'm so sad this had to end, but at the end, it said "See you next summer!" COULD THIS BE A ...

    a lot better then what i first thought
    to be honest when i first just looked at the show and read the summary it didn't really appeal to me at all so i ignored it but after only a few episodes i noticed how popular it was getting so i decided to finally cave and watch the first episode to figure out what was drawing people in. well after the dramatic male strip tease of men ripping off their shirts to swim i totally got it lol i ...

    I Only Swim Free-style!
    This show is so beautiful. Call me a fangirl who's a sucker for triceps but I love everything about this anime! The emotional tension between Rin and Haru, the funny moments between the swim team, and let's not forget Gou (or Kou as she wants to be addressed)! Pure bliss~<3

    Please come out with a 2nd Season!
    "See you next Summer!"
    Don't play with my heart this way!

    Look At The Pretty Water :D
    People keep saying that this is "just fan service" or "only for the girls" when actually......that's just half of the reason to watch it.

    Okay, I'll admit it is pretty hot and there are some parts that seem geared toward being nothing but sexiness, but have you really looked at the animation? There's one reason to watch it right there. Just look at that water! Have you ever seen so much detail ...

    Okay but for real just watch it
    I got a lot more than I expected watching this. I mean fanservice and a plot?! Impossible, but these swim boys have quite dramatic pasts. The personalities of each character will draw you in if the pretty animation doesn't. It's a good choice if you need a break from anime where 'major character death' is a plot device.

    Beautiful Art & Story
    The art is phenomenal and the story pulls you in. A fair bit of fan-service and at times bordering on yaoi but if you have an open mind you'll enjoy the story. You would think a story about two rivals and a swim team would seem dull but something about this works. Definitely worth investing in.

    I Only Swim Free....
    I passed by this show many times, read the description, and kept going. I caught up on all the other Anime's I'm watching and FINALLY decided to give this show a chance. With that said, I love it. I really like the characters personalities and the fact that they complement each other. At times the show has you laughing out loud, at times it stirs your heart. I haven't been able to stop watching ...

  • Really great show so far
    As far as light-hearted anime goes, this is one of the better series out there. It's especially relatable if you have any background in swimming ^_^! I actually found the show from an abridged comedy version by Octopimp on Youtube titled "50% OFF". I figured if the abridged version was so funny I might as well check out the original, and while it isn't as funny, I'm very happy to have found the ...

    This show is just . . .
    Hilarous, heart-warming, and overall an incredibly entertaining show to watch. Yes it's fanservice-y. Yes there a lot of scenes that make you question whether this truly isn't a BL anime, but you know what? It's a good freaking anime. The characters are utterly lovable and the story is one that will keep you coming back for the next episode. It's fun to see the friction between two of the focused ...

    Misleading yet Amusing
    I thoroughly enjoy the anime for a few reasons, but at the same time I really don't.

    Speaking strictly of animation and visual design of characters- it's very well done. The water is magnificently animated, as it should be. Each character has a physical defining trait about them (besides their hair colors all being different), and it's nice to see how each character has differently drawn eyes. ...
