This was announced on Friday by Funimation, other plans include to announce the dub for the first season of Free! Iwatobi Swim Club soon and a possible collaboration with streaming website Crunchyroll – who currently holds the home video rights of the first season – to distribute it on home video. Meanwhile, an OVA of the series will be included in the seventh and last Blu-ray disc and DVD of the series, slated for March 18, 2015.
Personally, I think it`s pretty hilarious that the jokes envolving Rin and his – possible – Australian accent might actually become a reality, and I´m also a bit sad that the Engrish will be lost, but, hey, if this helps Free! get some more content, I´m all for it.
