In order to make amends with Ikuya, Haruka begins training in other strokes besides freestyle and eventually competes in an Individual Medley alongside him.

Keep in mind, Free! The Final Stroke films is the continuation of the last season of the Free! TV serier, Dive to the Future. Thus, I included the plot for that season, as the official synopsis has yet not been released. However, the official website reveals that the story will revolve around Haruka Nanase, and his journey of becoming a man. In addition, he struggles with the question “why keep swimming?” In turn, it’ll be an emotional rollercoaster, as expected.
This Kyoto Animation anime is directed by Eisaku Kawanami. Free! The Final Stroke is slated to premiere on April 22, 2022. For more, please visit the official Twitter and website.
