Haruka: “As promised, I've arrived”

Kyoto Animation unveiled the first promotional video for the second season of the Free! (Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club) anime at the AnimeJapan 2014 event on Saturday. In the video, Haruka (voiced by Nobunaga Shimazaki) says, “As promised, I've arrived.”

Kyoto Animation announced that a second season was in production at a Free! talk event in January. The first season ended with a “see you next summer” message in the final episode.

The story of Kyoto Animation's series begins with Haruka Nanase, a high school boy who once swam competitively. 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.

The first anime premiered last July, and Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan.
