Free “Keeps Getting Better!”

free-4-omake-1

Even with an almost all-male cast and a storyline obsessed with their quasi-homosexual camaraderie and hot trunks, KyoAni’s powers are such that Free! continues to enjoy popularity even in non-fujoshi circles, the 4th outing certainly being no exception…

    I don't mind Free! when they're not shoving fanservice down my throat. But there's too little substance for me to really care so far, so it's just another "meh, I guess I can stomach this" weekly watch, not something to be proud of. It's just too niche to really leave an impact so far, because it's still swimming in the safe shallow end and shows no real signs of wanting to go deeper (read that however you want to).

    It's not that bad. Also, it's funny. And the female main character is cute ( <3 ), so it's all good.

    Gou is cute. The teacher doesn't do much for me though. She could have a better design.

    you would probably want the teacher to have big boobs and a huge ass while wearing a bikini that's too small for her right...?

    Anime for women is gay because it has male fanservice? I'm confused, is this supposed to be some kind of poorly conceived trolling?

    Of course everyone screaming and running from the show hasn't actually tried watching it... it's actually quite good and very funny. Full of the usual KyoAni charm.

    Nope, it's Genshiken and Makai Ouji. Calling Free gay is an insult to them.

    I find it easier to relate to. I've never really had girls in my primary friendship groups, so the slice-of-life anime where it's something like 1 guy and 4 girls don't seem to work as well for me. Also, the main characters are clearly athletic and people don't swim in suits of armour. Anyone saying this is a "gay anime" needs to get over themselves.

    @EndlessGr8 then you never had a flamboyant friend. I had a couples, they aren't gay at all. They just act the way they are because it's fun.

    You don't have to always be manly to be considered a man. Look at the actors in real life. They all have their funny side

    Really? My friend group has never really had any girls and yet I relate much better to the female casts. I think it's all in the way studios handle portraying each gender. In anime, females are strong-willed and yet they maintain their sensitivity for the most part. However, when they try to animate men with a sensitive side, they can't seem to do it without making them look horribly flamboyant. It's an unbelievable personality.

    Flamboyant? They turned those guys into girls under the guise of guys! You tell me they don't behave like girls!

    But yea this show's fun, but then again I've always kinda enjoyed campy comedy, I dunno if that sounds homophobic.

    It doesn't. The homophobic comments tend to be easier to spot. Saying you watch the show for the girl and the comedic value isn't homophobic at all.

    (also I'm under the impression all sports anime should be viewed as a comedy, because it's so laughably over the top to start with, so, no argument here)

    Oh, so they've kissed? Because I'm pretty sure showing romantic affection to one another would be a pretty good indicator, and without it, it's just baseless conjecture.

    That, or projection. It's hard to tell with some of you people.

    Honestly it's not a anime meant for any sexual orientation. It's not for homosexual. It's a woman fan service anime. Most anime this day and age have fan service for men. Having one for woman isn't too far fetched.

    That being said I watch it here and there. The characters don't even have homosexual tendencies. In fact it's just high school guys who swim in a club. I don't see the issue with them emphasizing the muscles and what not of a guy. Hell they always emphasize the breast and ass of women in anime.

    Don't get me wrong I enjoy me a good ecchi and harem too but that don't mean you cant watch Free! for things other than the fan service. Has a decent plot with subtle comedic elements which i chuckle at.

    Free! is a good anime. I stand by that.

    When LITERALLY every other picture is an ab, a back muscle, or the crack of one of their asses, I think it's safe to assume that this series is either gay or ONLY meant for women. Seriously though, is there A SINGLE THING about this show that could possibly appeal to a male viewer.

    Confirmed skinnyfag.

    Heterosexual men who work towards building up their muscles have no visceral reaction to seeing other men with muscles. If that's the only reason you have for hating Free!, you are a very ignorant person.

    Ever read or watch Hajime no Ippo, by the way? I don't recall that being a series solely for gay men and straight women.

    sports

    its not THAT much, i know, but competitive sport/sport in any way, is reason enough for me as a "man" to watch a show.

    This show is primarily for female viewers, but anyone who like beefcake with side-order of cheesecake can enjoy this too.

    Liking mildly manly shows like these does not make any male gay nor does female liking girly shows make female lesbian.

    Fist of the north star for example is even more manly and also slightly more homoerotic and saying only gay people or females like it makes no sense.
