The latest promotional video for the second season of Kyoto Animation's Free! (Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club) anime ran on the Akihabara UDX Vision screen in Tokyo's Akihabara district on Saturday. The video lists the second season as Free! Eternal Summer, and it confirms that the season will premiere this July on Japan's ABC, Tokyo MX TV, TV Aichi, and BS11 stations.
