    Fun stuff - definitely worth watching!
    The animation in this show is absolutely gorgeous. I love the water and they really capture swimming in general. Likable cast, too. I look forward to new episodes - glad they decided to make this into something. Much as the, ahem, fanservice portion of this makes me laugh, I legitimately think they have a decent storyline going already.

    I swear I'm not a defensive fan girl when I say...
    Well...yeah, we see cute half-naked boys with amazingly structured bodies, but the anime is actually getting interesting in terms of the story and characters. What? Is that something a defensive fan girl says? Perhaps haha but I'm being honest here. I really liked how in the second episode I started to see the background story revealing itself more. And a huge plus is that I'm really into swimming ...

    Seems pretty interesting.
    Let me start his review off with the fact that I'm a dude...I've read over some of the reviews for this anime and I've got to say, all this talk about fan service needs to stop...There's nothing strange about abs from active tournament level swimmers and what not. Then again, how to interpret that depends on how homophobic and sensitive you guys are...

    I'll be giving this anime a four. Why? ...

  • IM SO HAPPY THEY MADE THIS!
    I love sports anime! I also swim! Not only that but it's anime that is pointed toward the female fan base!!! I love it!

    But, to turn off fan girl mode. I do think this is going to be a fun anime to watch, there is already the "bad guy"/former friend and i think he has a back story. DRAMA!

  • This is just magnificent!
    At first I wasn't really too interested in watching this because of the cover... but after watching all the episodes its such a great anime. It doesn't only focus on the physique of these individuals but their mental states of minds as well. I'm looking forward to the upcoming episodes in this series!

    Just watch it. You won't regret it.
    First of all I'm a straight male, and this is currently tied for my favorite series this season. I can't decide whether I like this or WATAMOTE more.

    I've shown it to friends, and some of them have said "Yeah this is gay. Literally."

    This is as much yaoi as K-ON is yuri. Seriously. Yeah there are some scenes that could be taken that way, but what it comes down to is that it's a bunch ...

Tras conseguir la victoria, cada uno de los chicos siguió su propio camino. El tiempo ha pasado, y en mitad del ...

    One of the Worst shows i have had the misfortune of watching.
    The Whole show is all fan service no substance. The characters are uninspired and unoriginal. Each episode just seems to be there for the sake of pretty boys taking off their shirt with no real meaning behind it. The lot moves too fast because there Is no substance. The fact that this is so highly rated on crunchyroll is a crime to anime in itself. I hope soon this travesty of a show will be over ...

    LOVED IT SO MUCH!!!!
    I love this anime sooo much. Not only because of how attractive the guys are, but because the anime so well made. The art is clean and high quality. The way the anime shows the water seems so realistic and beautiful. The story itself is funny and interesting. I look forward to it every week.

    Beautiful animation and beautiful boys *q*
    The first three episodes have been great so far. Amazingly well done animation, as well as interesting characters. This anime makes me want to swim too! (Especially when Haru describes water in the first episode.) Also, Makoto is adorable. They did well in portraying Rin negatively, because I have taken a disliking toward him. xD I'm sure it'll change later on. Also, Kou-chan <3

    Oh my god, ...
