With the Japanese release schedule for Free – Iwatobi Swim Club set back in June, Kyoto Animation is starting to provide the commercials for the first volume and is making it clear there will be some good stuff on it. We knew previously that there’s be a booklet and the clean opening and closing sequences, but we also learned that there would be a bonus original short as well. We get a good tease for that with the promo below that gives us an under a minute piece that has fun with the characters.
Plot concept: Nanase Haruka loved to be in the water – loved swimming. In elementary school, Nanase Haruka, Tachibana Makoto, Matsuoka Rin, and Hazuki Nagisa attended the same swimming class together. Time passed, and as Haruka was living an uneventful high school life, he suddenly encountered Rin again. Rin challenged Haruka to a race and showed him how much stronger he had become. Soon enough, Makoto and Nagisa also rejoined the group, and along with a new classmate, Ryugazaki Rei, they established the Iwatobi High School Swimming Club. less
