Go on, Nanase-kun. Swim now and show us. Show us your freestyle!
Haruka loves the water, he swims in it to be free! But on this episode it was heartbreaking to see him being restrained by the water he loves and trying to escape from it - all because he felt so much pressure and he broke down. gaaaah…I don’t want to remember this episode exist.
I AM MAKORIN TRASH
Il migliore in assoluto, ANASTASIA.❤️
From the Inside Out sneak peek on Disney Movies Anywhere, we now have our first glimpse of Riley, the 11 year old girl who acts as the setting for these emotions.
At first glance her design is a little generic, but she’s grown on me. I think she’s pretty cute and wholesome looking! And I would also like to add that Disgust never fails to disappoint! I already know who my favorite character is.
Haru fucking broke my heart in this episode.
From the beginning of the anime, we know Haru loves the water, he loves swimming free, he truly doesn’t care about his time or being scouted but I feel like - in this episode - it’s the first time that we truly saw that.
Haru has been lately put under a lot of pressure, what does he want to do next year ? Does he wants to go pro ? Will he accept the scouts many offers ? Will he and his friends win the relay this year ? Although he didn’t give two shits about being scouted or not, the fact that he was, the fact that many people think he has a great talent, that people are counting on him, that he’s being called the pride of Iwatobi High School, that made it all real for him, serious, it made swimming serious.
And Haru doesn’t want that, he doesn’t want the pressure, he doesn’t want to think about his immenient future, he doesn’t want to swin to for someone else, Haru only swims free, he only swims for himself and his friends.
This is why he stopped in the middle of the race because Haru swims because he wants to, not because he has to and especially not to impress someone else. Being put in this situation, under this stress, literallymade him feel like he couldn’t swim anymore, like he wasn’t free anymore. You can even see it as he swims, at the beginning the water is clear like usual but soon and it becomes dark, dark like when Sousuke swims because now, swimming because as painful for Haru because of the stress as it is for Sousuke because of his shoulder.
This scene was as powerful as it was heartbreaking because he Haru can’t swim freely, he won’t swim at all.
