I have some bad news for the swimming fans that have been waiting religiously for this week’s episode of Free! Iwatobi Swim Club: there won’t be a new episode airing this Wednesday. It’s unclear at the moment what’s causing the delay, but Crunchyroll has posted the following under their availability notes for the series:
“Due to broadcast delays in Japan, Episode 5 of Free! will be airing on August 7.”
So, there you have it. It’s only a week, but it’s always disappointing to have to wait longer than expected for new episodes. In the meantime, why not check out my episode reviews for the series so far and rewatch the current releases? Don’t go through it all in one day though. You still have a week and a day to wait!
