Time for our third Free! -Eternal Summer- dub cast announcement—featuring Makoto Tachibana, the kind, sweet and sensitive Iwatobi Swim Club team mom captain, and Haru’s caretaker best friend! Who’s the official English voice behind those gentle eyes and lovely trapezius muscles?     

Makoto (played by Tatsuhisa Suzuki, singer of OLDCODEX, in the Japanese version) is played by Johnny Yong Bosch, who’s known for many other dub roles you might recognize from other anime—Lelouch Lamperouge from Code Geass, Ichigo Kurosaki from Bleach, Yukio Okumura from Blue Exorcist, Artemis in the new Sailor Moon dub, and more. Johnny also provides the lead vocals and guitar for his band Eyeshine! Click here for more info about the band.  

We asked Johnny a few Free! ES-related questions!  

Question: Can you swim? If so, what’s your best stroke?

Johnny: Yes, doggy paddle.  

Question: What’s your favorite marine animal?

Johnny: The walrus.  

Question: When you were in high school, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Johnny: An action star…but that really came from me daydreaming about saving a cheerleader from some grab-happy jock and after that I’m allowed to sit at the cool table.  

Check back tomorrow for our next announcement! We’re announcing new dub cast members every day this week until November 16! The announcements hit first on the Free! -Eternal Summer- Tumblr and Facebook page, so make sure you’re following them for the most up-to-date news!

Like Yesterday - Eyeshine

The skies are dark today 
Reminds me of the way you used to say 
That times like this will come and go
Your love remains

I remember you like yesterday
I remember you 

How’s it gonna be 
When everyone is laughing about me 
Even if the things I do are right 
Can I just stay up with you all night

I remember you like yesterday
I remember you

It ain’t over till it’s over
I can’t let you slip out of my head
It ain’t over till it’s over
Cuz’ i can’t let you slip out of my head
My head

And everything inside is out of place 
There are thoughts I've tried but can’t erase 
Can I ever get it back, can i ever get it back
Can I ever get it back, can i ever

Cuz’ It ain’t over till it’s over
Cuz’ i can’t let you slip out of my head
It ain’t over till it’s over
I can’t let you slip out of my head. ~
