Hi. I don't know if this is the right place to put this or not, but am I the only one that finds Free! (Iwatobi swim club) to be a bit overhyped? I hope I'm not the only one. And before you go all sjw on me, no I'm not a homophobe. I LOVE yaoi... But I'm not exactly sure Free! Is my cup of tea if you get my groove. There are a few points that I could bring up as to why I'm not its biggest fan. But one of the first being that... It's not actually yaoi is it? In fact, it isn't even BL to be honest right? You might be saying, 'but Stitchy, Haru and Makoto are like TOTALLY gay for eachother'. But here's where you misunderstand me. I will not deny that the show is pretty damn gay.... But the amout of ACTUAL boy's love and male on male romance in it is... Well, surprisingly none. In fact, canon states that makoto has a girl friend. The show never actually depict ANY of the various hot bodied male characters kissing or even flirting. There are no actual gay relationships in it. All they do is simply tease us with those damned antics and leave it all up to the imagination. It is said they almost made it a shonen ai but decided not to.... WHY? It's already the gayest thing in anime! Why not just let it go all the way? It really couldn't get much gayer. What were they so scared of? Anyways. That and some other reasons, I say Free! Is a bit overrated. Please tell me if you agree. I have other reasons and reiterations as to why I'm not as hyped about it as the rest of the anime community.
