What have I done?
Face references from danshi koukousei no nichijou, dancing samurai, gto, toradora and barakamon.
IF ONLY WE SAW WHAT KIND OF FACE MAKOTO’S MAKING BECAUSE IF HE’S MAKING THIS FACE
THEN THAT’S IT. MAKOTO GOES FROM ILLEGAL TO BEYOND ILLEGAL THAT EVEN THE COPS HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO DO WITH HIM
reminder that not only did haru walk all the way to the swim club to hand makoto his lunch,
but he also waited for hours (until the evening) for makoto to finish his work…
even if you don’t ship makoharu you have to admit that’s some pretty damn good friendship right there.
haru’s also known for not bringing his mobile phone with him, and i don’t think he swam while he was there; how boring must waiting have been for him?
MAKOTO: Despite it all, you keep a good eye over everyone, Haru.translation [x]
HARUKA: I just see the forms they swim. (If it isn’t good…)
MAKOTO: If it isn’t good form, it’ll make them harder to be one with the water, right?
HARUKA: How could you tell?
MAKOTO: I just can. Do you know how many years we’ve been together?
HARUKA: Then what am I thinking right now?
MAKOTO: Why does that make you act stubborn? …Let’s see… “Makoto, you dummy,” along those lines?
HARUKA: …You’re right…
MAKOTO: I could see it in your face…
HARUKA: How about now?!
MAKOTO: Are we still doing this?! Hmm, let’s see… “I hope dinner is mackerel cooked in miso,” or something?
HARUKA: No. The correct answer is mackerel grilled with salt. I win.
MAKOTO: [laughs] Hey, what kind of contest is this?
I’ve been having sappy dreams about these two lately…
I really want them to kiss so bad
yknow, i’ve seen a lot of posts analyzing haru’s nightmare and rin and haru’s fight from last episode, but im honestly shocked at the lack of attention this scene has.
we’ve been seeing all season that makoto is struggling with what he wants to do when he gets out of high school. he probably never thought he’d be able to make it to the big leagues because his talent wasn’t up there with haru and rin’s. he’s jealous of rin because he could never ignite that spark in haru that rin can when they swim. haru is constantly being targeted by scouts. makoto probably feels like he’s being left behind.
but right here. this is the first time makoto is being told that his talent is worth something. even if he has decided on what he wants to do after graduation (i.e., studying in tokyo, working at the iwatobi swim club, etc.), this is the only time makoto has heard he has the potential to keep swimming. and it’s not from his best friend or his teammates or his teachers - it’s from rin.
obviously rin’s goal is to swim professionally and make it to the olympics. but up to this point makoto had assumed he was only interested in whether or not haru was taking his future into consideration. rin is also worried about makoto. not many people remember that makoto and rin are very close friends because they don’t have the same bond with each other that they both have with haru. but all season rin has been worrying about them both and rin wants them both to consider swimming professionally, not just for their future’s sake, but so he can continue swimming with his friends.
Emphasis added. At the cherry blossom pool, Rin did ask both Haru and Makoto what their plans were for the future, after all.
