Funimation Entertainment announced on Sunday that Ian Sinclair (Hetalia's Romano, Space Dandy's Dandy, One Piece's Brook) will play Sosuke Yamazaki and Jamie Marchi (Panty & Stocking's Panty, High School DxD's Rias Gremory) will play Gou Matsuoka in its upcoming English dub of Free! Eternal Summer.

Funimation also announced the following new cast members:

  • Caitlin Glass as Miho Amakata
  • Robert McCollum as Seijuro Mikoshiba
  • Christopher R. Sabat as Goro Sasabe
  • Clifford Chapin as Takuya Uozumi
  • Micah Solusod as Kazuteru Minami

Jerry Jewell will serve as ADR director, J. Michael Tatum will adapt the original scripts, and Alyssa Galindo and Kenneth Thompson will serve as ADR engineers for the dub. Funimation noted that there are still some dub cast roles that need to be filled, and it will make those announcements in the future.

The company is made new cast announcements every day from November 10 through November 16, and it already announced J. Michael Tatum as Rei Ryugazaki, Greg Ayres as Nagisa Hazuki, Johnny Yong Bosch as Makoto Tachibana, Todd Haberkorn as Haru, Vic Mignogna as Rin, Jerry Jewell as Momotaro Mikoshiba, and Josh Grelle as Aiichiro Nitori.

Free! Eternal Summer is the second season of Kyoto Animation's Free - Iwatobi Swim Club anime. Crunchyroll currently holds the home video rights for the first season, and Funimation stated last month that it has approached Crunchyroll about a collaboration to make an English dub of the anime's first season and distribute it on home video. At the time, Funimation said that Crunchyroll had yet to reply to their inquiry.

The second season premiered on July 2, and both Funimation and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan.

The season features the new character Sōsuke Yamazaki, one of Rin's best friends from elementary school who understands him well. Yoshimasa Hosoya plays Sōsuke.

The official website for the Free! Eternal Summer anime announced in August that an unaired, special episode will be included on the seventh Blu-ray Disc and DVD volumes of the series, which is slated to ship in Japan on March 18, 2015.
