To free! The Final Stroke Part 2 Release Date, Characters & Plot
The world has known “Free! The Final Stroke” for a long time now. According to Anime News Network, Kyoto Animation revealed the two-part film project along with specific release dates in April. Unlike many other anime (and the media in general), there was no secret when “The Final Stroke part 2” would debut. The release date has always been set for April 22, 2022.
Before we jump for joy, however, there are a few caveats about this release date. While it is exciting that the final entry into the “Free!” The saga arrives in less than a year, that excitement is toned down knowing that April 22 is just the theatrical release date in Japan. Plus, the fact that the first part of “Final Stroke” was released on September 17th without immediate localization efforts is pretty much a guarantee that Western fans of “Free!” will have to wait to see how this historic sports anime ends.
Unfortunately, Kyoto Animation hasn’t revealed when âThe Final Strokeâ might cross the Pacific to reach the rest of the world. However, it is likely that this will happen within a year of the films being released. That being said, anime fans have never been particularly patient with these things, and it wouldn’t be surprising if the films appeared (illegally, of course) somewhere on the internet long before an official Western release.
