This Anime called Free

I’ve never been a fan of sports anime. I tried once with Chihayafuru and twice with Kuroko no Basuke but my attention span has proven itself way too short with the sports genre. And then Free shows up. The first time I heard of it, the word ‘sports’ made me tune out whatever else was being said about it.

His pecks looked like breasts the first time I saw this

Then I come across this poster and I’m thinking “Oh! This might not be too bad!”. And it’s not because of these fine bishies; I swear it’s not. Kuruko no Basuke had that bait, along with the sweet catch of shounen-ai but I wasn’t sold then. It’s because of the swimming. Swimming is my favorite sport (and I can’t swim *sobs*). And that is why I’m willing to give Free a great chance of being the first sports anime that I’ll like.

And that art! It works well enough as another pull factor to get me into this. Hopefully all this bait works its charms to keep me coming back for each episode. Also I had seen the promo video. It’s probably safe to say that I was drooling...No. I take that back. But you get the point; it was enticing. Very enticing.

Those two in the back...my sensors are going off ♥u♥

That’s all for now.

    I don’t mind sports anime, and Kuroko no Basuke and Chihayafuru are two of my favorite series of all time. Though… I didn’t get into them because of the sports aspect. Fanservicey one, and just awesome characters beautificness in the other. c:

    Free! however is going to take the world by storm. I see that’s it’s split mostly between the fanservice/swimming lovers, and people who dislike where new KyoAni/fanservice. Still, the fanservice haters can REALLY kiss my ass.

      I still plan to give those two another try. Maybe the third time around will work.
      Yeah, Free is really getting hyped as far as I can see. And fanservice haters will ALWAYS be there.

    Apparently, from what I’ve read, this series was born out of a reaction to a Kyoto Animation 30 second promo. The promo was only intended as a promotion to its studio and initially had no intention of creating an actual series, but the promo quickly gathered a large fan-base and now we have the anime Free!

      So that’s what happened :o? That promo vid was so good though. Haha KyoAni trapped itself xD I really hope the anime is good because I’m looking forward to it.
