Haruka Nanase and Rin Matsuoka from the “Free!” anime series have been appointed as ambassadors for Mizuno. In addition to Haruka and Rin, real-world athletes such as boxing’s Naoya Inoue, figure skating’s Shoma Uno, curling’s Loco Solare, as well as actor Ryoma Takeuchi were also appointed as ambassadors.
Haruka and Rin are illustrated wearing the same Mizuno gear, which in turn will be printed on limited-edition T-shirts, towels, swimwear, and others. Reservations will be accepted from 2nd to 20th April, with deliveries slated for late July.
In related news, the all-new theatrical-length adaptation of “Free!” titled “Free! The Movie – Road to the World Dream-” is finally getting a release window in 2021. The film was scheduled for release in the summer of 2020 but had been postponed due to various reasons.
