The ED theme of Free! Eternal Summer, Future Fish, has gained a lot of notoriety among anime fans as it featured Rin Matsuoka cosplaying a police officer while doing a sexy dance. Fans of the anime have now identified where that ED actually took place and pretty soon, that area may be flocked by fans of the series hoping to copy the ED.
Rin’s sexy dancing aside, the other cast members were doing their own thing like Rei Ryuugasaki doing some weird experiment in what seems to be a swimming pool “underwater area”. That very “underwater area” is actually a contemporary art exhibit in a museum in Kanazawa which provides the facade that you are really underwater.
The exhibit is in the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa and is named “Swimming Pool” which aims to “reflect” the beauty of a figure as seen by someone underwater. Also known as the “Pool Of Leandro”, it was based on the concept by Leandro Erlich and this would be the artist’s first solo exhibit in Japan. The exhibit will only be shown until August 31, 2014 so Free! fans better hurry.
The Free! Eternal Summer ED meanwhile has become a bit of a meme in Japan, especially because of Rin’s sexy dance. Free! fans, who have made the small town of Iwami an anime tourism hotspot will surely want to visit this exhibit.
