I don’t understand why people are hating on Rin, Haru, Sousuke, etc. They are TEENAGERS in their FINAL year in HIGH SCHOOL going to be in the REAL world soon. That’s fucking scary.
Haru is feeling pressured because everyone has big expectations of him and he refuses to tell anyone how he feels until he final breaks. He doesn’t want to be controlled. He wants to swim freely, but he doesn’t really fully understand the consequences of it. Like most teens he stills trying to figure out what he wants to do in life. Many, if not all, teenagers have gone through that stage where you don’t know what to do. Haruka is scared. He’s scared. He doesn’t know what to do with his future because he thinks he doesn’t have one.
Rin wants the best for Haru but is stuck with his dreams in his mind. Like any teenager, he put his thoughts in his words towards Haru. Like MANY teenagers, he miscommunicated with Haru. He cares for Haru a lot, he just doesn’t know how to put in words sometimes. He wants the best for his friend, he truly does. However he and Haruka are opposites in nature, thinking differently and view swimming differently. That means there’s gonna be a lot of miscommunication, which stresses Rin because he just wants to help a friend. Rin is scared.
Sousuke is injured. He’s risking his FUTURE to swim with his Rin because he cares so much about him. He’s keep his injury a secret from Rin. He doesn’t want to see him hurt or ruin his chances of swimming with Rin. We don’t know the severity of his injury but it’s implied to be pretty bad. There’s no way it will heal that fast if not at all. His future as a swimmer is in danger. Sousuke is scared.
They are ALL scared.
These boys are under a lot of pressure and stress. Don’t go bashing them because hell, what would you do in a situation like theirs?
Alright I’m done rambling. Goodbye.
help im drowning in swimming anime hell
and in that moment, I swear we were all Haru
NO SERIOUSLY WHY DO I FUCKING LOVE THEM AND LOVE THIS SHOW AND FEEL FOR THEM SO DAMN MUCH!!! FUCKKKK THAT EPISODE!!
Seriously though, when Rin raised his fist for the fist bump I thought he was going to punch Sousuke in the shoulder (playfully) and I was internally screaming, “RIN NOOOOO”
But then it was just a fist bump and I let out a sigh of relief.
Oh yay! It’s wednesday! Time for Free!
They literally tore out my heart and shoved it into a paper shredder.
rin and haru angst is killing me. it’s like a relationship without communication.
