Q:CATHRELL YOUU !!!!!! ;A; YOU'RE THE ONLY ONE WHO UNDERSTANDS ME ON HARU'S WEIRD EUREKA MOMENT OTL EVERYONE IS SAYING "WELL THAT'S WHAT HARU WANTS JUST SHUT UP AND FORGET ABOUT MAKOHARU AND RINHARU AND RESPECT HIS DECISION" BUT IM LIKE HOW?? HARU JUST SUDDENLY WANTS TO GO PRO BECAUSE????¿¿¿¿¿ I DONT UNDERSTAND ;___; HUG ME BABE
EUREKA MOMENT WAS TOO WEIRD MAN. but it happens i guess. happened with me and my whole going art path instead of med but haru’s was completely different.
I thought it was odd and I was snorting when people said "He wanted to go pro because he saw the Olympic-sized pool" and I went "Pfft! That’s ridiculous. That can’t be it!" AND THEN I WATCH THE EPISODE AND WAS LIKE "ok. it’s true. OTL"
I respect Haru’s decision (even though I still wanted him to be a chef or like an artist—even a manga artist D:). But what really sets me off is that, he fought for what he believed in since season one until episode 11 to the point he risked his friendship with Makoto, and that, my friend shows how much it weighs. And then we get this episode (as adorable as it is with the beach scene with rin bragging about him and sousuke pffft!) it was like all his beliefs were ignored? Was the whole two season pointless with them shoving to us again and again that Haru swims free? I admit I have not watched that much sports anime (or anime in general since i’m a bit new) but wouldn’t it be nice to watch a sports anime wherein the protagonist chooses a different path? To go unorthodox.
Thing is, Haru has so many choices. He is seriously talented and the creators just kinda didn’t make him have other options. :( He could be the youngest chef who specializes on different ways to prepare saba and he’d be beaming with pride because hell yeah people finally appreciates the beauty of saba please have more in like forever and his friends would be totally cool with it because why the hell not? At least he’s using his saba obsession into something amazing and he’s kicking butt with it.
I do look forward to the finale to see how they fix this but I’m not hoping on it too much considering season one finale. A hug between the best friends is probably the only thing I’m hoping for but we might not ever get that. But who knows?
LICK MY ASS KYOANI YOU PIECES OF SHIT
HARU LOOKS AT THE ~*OLYMPIC*~ POOL (a sight he’s never seen before!?!?) AND GOES” YEAH I WANNA KEEP SWIMMING…. I WANT THE PRO LIFE (sparkles)” like that’s literally it HE DIDN’T EVEN SWIM AGAINST ANYONE HE JUST LOOKED…
If you ever tell me that Haru doesn’t care about his friendship with Makoto I will fly out to you, punch you in the throat and shove this photoset right up your ass.
Track 11: Free Wake Up Ambush, part 5
Nagisa: Haru-chan’s fell asleep… Must have been because he got up early to make us all breakfast.
Rei: He’s fast asleep, isn’t he.
Makoto: You’re right…
Nagisa: Geez, Mako-chan you’re way too tired!
Makoto: I’ve had enough mackerel to last me a while…
Rei: Speaking of, Haruka-senpai’s breathing…
Makoto: Ah, it’s way too quiet…
Rei: This breathing pattern is… Sleep apnea.
Nagisa: No breathing!? This is bad! Haru-chan’s going to die! Mako-chan! You have to do CPR!
Rei: W-Wait a second!
Nagisa: Mako-chan, hurry!
Makoto: Ahhh! What do you do in these situations again? Um, ensure the wind pipe is clear? But Haru likes water, so maybe water would be better!?
Nagisa: You can’t give him water! You have to give Haru-chan air! Like what you learng in physical education class!
Makoto: Ahhh, I got it!
[ sound of heart beating ]
Haruka: What are you doing…?
Nagisa: Rei-chan thought Haru-chan was about to die!
Rei: Hey, I never said that!
Makoto: Thank God… Haru…!
Nagisa: Haru-chan! Thank God you’re alive!
Makoto: We were so worried about you…!
Haruka: I dreamt that I caught the mackerel of illusions.
Nagisa: Ehehe~ As expected of Haru-chan!
Haruka: I don’t know what’s going on, but… Sorry for making you worry. In apology, I’ll make mackerel pudding.
Nagisa, Rei & Makoto: Ugh..!
Nagisa: If you’re going to make pudding, strawberry would be best!
Haruka: Then mackerel cream puffs.
Rei: Using mackerel to make cream is not beautiful…
Haruka: Then mackerel macarons.
Makoto: Geez~ Let’s get away from mackerel!
Rin: Ugh, sheesh, that guy, Makoto… At least let me know what happened after! …What the hell am I worried about? Something like Haru turning into a mackerel is impossible… Or rather, can a human really turn into a mackerel? If it’s Haru it might be possible… Wait, what am I saying!?
Nitori: Ah, Rin-senpai, what are you troubled by?
Rin: Leave me alone. Should I make a call? No, it would be weird if I called! To begin with, what the hell is with turning into a mackerel!?
(note: translations are done from japanese -> chinese -> english, so there may be small differences)
M: It’s such a cold day, I want to warm up in a kotatsu… Ugh~ s-so cold,.. it’s so cold… the wind feels so cold, my ears hurt… Haru, it seems like today is supposed to be the coldest winter day yet.
H: Is that so.
M: I’ve always wondered, doesn’t Haru feel cold wearing so little?
H: It’s no problem.
M: I feel cold just looking at you! Haa, it’s been so unbearably cold since I woke up this morning, I’m wearing extra layers beneath my coat today.
H: Aren’t you wearing too many today? You look bigger than usual.
M: Eh? Is it really that much? Is it weird..?
H: Ignore that for now and let’s go. Or we won’t we able to board the train.
M: Eh? Wait, Haruuuu!!
please forgive any inaccuracies in translation (feel free to correct me) ><”
note: this is just a short clip (i think the actual track is supposed to be 8min long) idk if the rest is available somewhere…
Makoto’s voice is so moe（人´∀`*）~♥
