i was really happy with the episode at first
rin apologized to haru for his insensitive words (yay for problems not magically going away!)
haru was stil hurting from his fight with makoto (yay for problems not magically going away!)
we got to see some of rin’s australia stuff
and the english was loltastic
AND THEN BAM AHAHAAH ALL OF HARUS PROBLEMS JUST MAGICALLY GO AWAY YAY PRO SWIMMING
we’ve taught girls to romanticise nearly everything a boy does. when i was younger i thought it was cute that boys chased the girl even after she said no. i loved it when after a girl moved away from a kiss, the guy would pull her back and force it on. i thought a guy saying ‘i won’t take a no for an answer’ was passionate and romantic. we’re literally always teaching girls to romanticise abusive traits.
So like, what the fuck does this mean? Yeah Haru wants to swim we all know that.
But he looks at one shiny pool in Australia and suddenly he wants to go pro? I really hope that I’m misunderstanding the implication here, because if that’s the case that is really shitty writing.
Someone who spent the whole series (and novels) saying they don’t care about times and competitions and winning suddenly wants to do the opposite of everything they ever said and believed in? Not to mention the pressure made him break down completely in the middle of his last race. But, hey that’s okay, we need a resolution for the end of the season, so he’ll just be a pro swimmer!!
What the actual fuck.
So apparently Australian Olympic swimmers Eamon Sullivan and Andrew Lauterstein appeared in FreeES 12.
And guess what…
They both swim Free(style)
