The 12th and final scheduled episode of the Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club television anime ended early Thursday morning with a message that simply read, "see you next summer…" The previous episodes ended with the message "see you next water time," but Kyoto Animation has yet to announce a second season of the anime.
The story began with Haruka Nanase, a high school boy who once swam competitvely. After years of separation, his childhood friend Rin challenges him to a swimming match, showing Haruka his overwhelming power. Not wanting it to end like this, Haruka gathers together his former teammates Makoto and Nagisa once again, and also brings a new member named Rei Ryugazaki to create the Iwatobi High School Swimming Club. Haruka, Makoto, Nagisa, Rei, and Rin come together for a story of swimming, youth, and friendship.
