    I'd definitely recommend Free!
    This anime is amazing! There's not much I can say about it right now because there's only a few episodes so far and I wouldn't want to spoil it for anyone.
    I'd like to mention that the purpose of this anime is not for fanservice.
    Yes, it has shirtless boys - but they're not exactly going to swim with full clothing, are they? It's just realistic swimwear.
    Also, a few of my friends have ...

    Swimming!! ~~~ hot guys~~ muscles
    This show is a fan service for girls and it's rare to see guys liking this show because we see a lot of scene with guy remove their short and muscles xD and yes the guys on this anime are hot. It's on purpose to attract the girls. The plot is ok, they have a goal and it has sense. I will give a 3/5 because I'm not into fanservice. It would be good if there is more girls. I'm just watching it for ...

    Fanservice for the ladies
    Free, essentially, is a sports oriented Slice-Of-Life, with a nearly all male cast.

    Set in Iwatobi High School, we join the characters as they spend the days hangign out and swimming.

    Basically, it's like K-ON, except it is aimed towards female viewers instead of male ones.

    In terms of animation, everything is shiny and pretty!

    Voice actors are good.

    Backgrounds are good, and ...

    pleasantly surprised!
    This show has one of the most brilliant marketing schemes I've ever seen. The OVAs and posters showed nothing but bright colours, hot guys and smooth animation. It didn't disappoint in those categories, but surprisingly actually does have some substance behind it! The first few episodes are just kind of "oh haha this show is funny" but by the fifth episode actually decides to slow down a little ...

    The water is ready!!
    Perfect anime if you love swimming! Calm down people, yes they are guys on swimsuits, do you swim with you clothes on? because if the answer is yes you have some serious issues, go to therapy! Again if you are a guy and you feel uncomfortable around guys in swimming suits, stop insulting people online, go to therapy and leave people enjoy their favorite anime alone. This series is great, the ...

    Wonderful! Love it!!
    Everything I heard about this anime was true and can be summed up in one word: fanservice. It's fun, it's silly, it's dramatic, it has great characters, and it's very, very shippy! I can't remember the last time I had this much fun watching an anime.

    Have you ever tried explaining this anime to a friend?
    Earlier this week I tried to explain this anime to a friend of mine who asked what I'd been watching lately; I was stymied since the only words I could think of were vague and slightly less than appropriate. I think that's part of the magic of anime, and this one in particular, nothing you expect to happen ever happens and so explaining the premise of a show is incredibly difficult. It's enough ...

    Is it ok to like this show.. If I'm a man?
    This show is hilarious.

    I'm a man and I totally dig this show. Cut the whole "this is for the ladies" BS, it's a nice show where the characters actually care about each other and form nice relationships. We need more anime like this!

    AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    This anime is amazing simply amazing. Being a guy and a swimmer I believe it shows exactly what you imagine yourself acting and doing at a swimming meet. That sensation of being in the water and racing others in a high speed swimming competition is no joke the tensions is high and the nervous can really get to you. Just watch this anime its amazing can't wait for the next episode and how this will ...
