Free! is a terrible anime and annoying as fuck.
- The fandom ships everyone with everything and screams about their “GAY BOYS”.
- THERE IS NO PLOT.
- ITS LITERALLY JUST HIGHSCHOOL ANIME BOYS SWIMMING AND HAVING HIGHSCHOOL DRAMA.
- THAT’S IT.
I watched the first three episodes since literally all my friends are obsessing over it. I didn’t see the big deal, its not very interesting, a bunch of guys swim, make a club, and then have ~implied~ sex with each other? Oh and then one of the guys is apparently ‘gay’ for water when I wasn’t aware that water had a gender in the first place? There is no conflict, no plot-twists, just a complete lack of story depth. Oh, wait scratch that, one of the characters almost drown but is saved by his ‘boyfriend’.
Not only is the anime uninteresting, the fandom is the epiphany of annoying weeaboos. I’m not even kidding, since everyone I follow watches this show my dashboard is nothing but shitty screenshots with “They totally fucked” in the description and a bunch of “pretend texts between the characters” that everyone squeals and freaks out about. I just don’t get it, sure your allowed to enjoy any anime for whatever reason but to reduce the anime to nothing but your shipping fantasy’s…
One more thing, the anime is nothing but female fanservice. I’m not kidding. So not only does it have no story-line, its also fueled with fangirls who demand that their ‘precious boys’ have homoerotic sex 24/7 and be all cute around each other. Its almost like the creator is trying too hard to make all the male characters moe and sensitive, or the exact opposite. (Mysterious and quiet?)
Now, I know a lot of people argue that this anime is supposed to appeal to girls, however as a girl myself I’m kind of unamused by that thought. So your saying since I’m a girl (a lesbian in fact.) I must love anime’s with no plots and bishie anime boys who just swim and have highschool drama all the time.
There is no point in arguing with me. Because this is my opinion, even if its an unpopular one, go ahead and disagree, make a lists of all the reasons I’m wrong. It will only further my point.
Agreed with most of this.
