As a girl, I have lots of bishies who I adore everyday and I cannot disagree that Free! characters are not on it. They are cute, unique, handsome, friendly, kind, and funny, well all depends on the character! When I watched this few thing came into my mind; 'gay' XD and 'fan-service'. Am I wrongly interpreted what was going on there? Beforehand, I was mind-fucked by the crazy fandom so I mostly know the plot.
Maybe I like it because I'm a girl. Yet I think that boys could watch it too and make fun of the half-naked scene as I did. The plot is engaging as I was interested if Haru will ever swim in relay and would stop thinking about just 'water', what happened between Rin and Haru, Rei and swimming development, if Rin will be an asshole for the rest of anime.
