Free! Delayed For Swimming Competition

Free! Episode 3 | Saru Anime

A few days ago, it was reported that there would be no new episode of Free! Iwatobi Swim Club this week. In an announcement for their new Free! iOS app, Crunchyroll revealed the reason for the delay.

Free!‘s fifth episode seems to have been delayed this week to make way for a broadcast of the 15th FINA (International Swimming Federation) World Championship. Basically, Free! was postponed for a swimming competition. If you don’t think that’s hilarious, then something is wrong. This year’s FINA World Championship has been going on in Barcelona since July 19th and will wrap up August 4th. If you enjoy Free!, I’d say it’s worth checking out some of these real-life talented swimmers.

In the meantime, Crunchyroll’s Free! app collects all the previously released episodes together for easy viewing and boasts pictures of the main cast. There’s also a mysterious “hidden feature.” If you find it, please let us Android-users in on the secret!
