With its sales and popularity it was something bound to happen, and finally here’s the news. During a special talk event on Sunday, it was revealed that second season of Free! has been green lit. The actual date hasn’t been confirmed yet, but at least now we can look forward to something. If you haven’t seen the first season, here is the summary of what it’s about:
The story revolves around Haruka Nanase, a boy who has always loved to be immersed in water, and to swim in it. Before graduating from elementary school, he participated in a swimming tournament along with his fellow swimming club members, Makoto Tachibana, Nagisa Hazuki, and Rin Matsuoka. After achieving victory, each of the boys went their separate ways.
Time passed, and in the middle of their uneventful high school lives Rin appears and challenges Haruka to a match, showing Haruka his overwhelming power. Not wanting it to end like this, Haruka, gathers together Makoto and Nagisa once again and brings a new member named Rei Ryugazaki to create the Iwatobi High School Swimming Club in order to defeat Rin.
