My name is Sol, like the sun in Spanish, and I'm 20 years old. I love anime, movies, tv shows, books, etc. This blog is a jumbled up mess and pretty much has everything.
Reminder that Rin was probably so upset because from his point of view, not only is Haru blowing off his future, but he’s blowing off a future with Rin. By not finishing the race, he blew off the chance to swim with Rin in the finals, and he might have blown off the chance to swim with him in university, and Haru didn’t even realize what he was saying.
Rin can only be thinking that this was the race for Haru to make it to the LAST RACE HE might get to swim against Rin in his highschool career. If he decides not to swim professionally, EVER. But he didn’t give it his all, he put his foot down.
Now I understand that Haru was cracking under pressure, but I would have hoped that swimming that final race with Rin would have given him a bit more motivation. Especially since he then proceeded to say that he would give the relay his all.
But then left Rin. By his fucking self. Maybe to never swim with him one-on-one again in Rin’s mind, to go swim with his friends, whom he told Rin he swam for in the first place.
Rin must not feel like one of those friends anymore.
