I saw few people referring to Rin as selfish and saying that he thinks that his way is the only way— well— I want to give my own opinion over it.
First of all, I don’t think it’s the correct way to view this. Rin always was the one to give a push to Haruka, but so far, could you…
Oh God, the pain in episode 9 is real.
me after ep 9
HIS FACE ! HIS FUCKING FACE ! DON’T FUCKING TOUCH ME !
Reminder that Rin was probably so upset because 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.
And then, he turned around and said he swims for his friends. Rin must not feel like one of those friends anymore.
