Free! “Fantastic Even If You’re Not Gay or Fujoshi!”




KyoAni’s greatest anime yet continues to enjoy huge popularity even amongst demographics who would traditionally spurn titles not centred on the Type B antics of loveable moeblobs, to say nothing of the overwhelming popularity it now enjoys amongst the deservedly smug fujoshi crowd…




















































































Fans still in denial about the merits of a cast of lithe young men all too eager to whip off their clothes at the mere sight of open water have been ensuring the gender-swapped cast enjoy a parallel existence of their own:







There are even the charms of Gou to contend with:

    Really? Shivers? He's a shota, that's what shotas do in anime. You guys are so pathetic when your cutesypoo waifu tropes are put onto male characters. Admit the boys are kawaii as shit and move on.

    I don't like Free! due to the fact that I'll admit the only reason I would watch a anime about swimming would be for superficial reasons.

    well I do like Kuroko no Basket alot because it's actually very interesting and not really directed towards a singular audience. While Free! seems like it's highly directed towards the female-esque audience as well as anime fans who are into swimming. I don't think it's really gay at all and I'm kind of a homophobic. Honestly, this anime is just really for those certain groups of people so it's pretty understandable why others don't like it.

    i watched kuroko up to the match against the 1 prodigy, then it became worst plot wise so dumped it. As for free i don't think i would watch it even if they were all women.At most try it if there were both (since i dislike a show who is only directed at a gender)

    The issue everyone seems to have with "Free!" whether they're male or female, is that the guys all act like chicks and that's not really appealing to anyone.

    Boku no Pico actually has pretty good plot, but it involves hentai relationships with boys. It is gay, but it has a well written plot that instead of bring expanded on was spent for the BL H scenes. You should not hate or discourage a manga or anime because of Homosexual romance themes or you will limit your own growth. Though this anime is obviously gay. Super gay. Behind the gas station at night gay. Airport bathroom foot tapping glory hole gay. Call of Duty Gay.

    Boku no Pico is intended for guys to watch. It's just futanari loli if you think about it.. Free on the other hand is inteded for girls to watch. Also, it's used to troll everyone on this site.

    Tons of hetero people get their jollies off boku no pico, have you seen the youtube reaction vids? Maybe it's not being enjoyed in it's intended way but yeah, it is.

    also, comparing Free! to boku no pico is a crazy stretch...

    I tried to focus on the fact that the girl is clearly attracted to one of them (which one is difficult to discern) and that this means there's a straight romance present which is all I needed to watch. But I also couldn't help but notice all of that yaoi subtext in those pictures.

    Same as me. The half naked man scene is clearly aimed for fujiyoshi, but its also hint straight romance.

    Well, just glad the level of gayness is under control (no offense), and no make out man to man scene..

    if there is any, it will be to much for me to handle.

    well if it is wincest it will be the winnest wincest in the history of wincest. imagine the show winding down toward the end. more fujoshits crowing in raucous homosynchronization. then suddenly gou reappears after a 5 ep lapse, pregnant with onii-chan's child.

    It's just hard core KyoAni fanboys, who refuse to admit that KyoAni is capable of putting out crap every now and then.

    Anyone who takes the words of fanboys of any product as fact is just asking to have their lunch money taken.

    Fujiyoshi, gay men, and brainwashed kyoani fanboys can enjoy the show all the want. I'll pass, thanks.

    Trap otaku? Unless Gou is actually a man, there isn't a trap in this show.

    Agreed, animes are just getting worse and worse with each passing season. Looks like they are turning into hollywood, running out of idea's for animes.

    Comment by Anonymous

    I haven't watched this series and probably won't, but I wouldn't say anime keeps getting worse and worse. I mean have you even watched Shingeki no Kyojin? Definitely a good series so I doubt your claim that anime keeps getting worse and worse.

    Kyoani anime however...

    Funny you'd say that, since K-On fit the description for running out of ideas for anime, AND turning into Hollywood. Making a show about a bunch of buff swimming dudes seems to be something fairly original to both Hollywood AND anime. :p
