Hi~! Now that Free! is over i rewatched s1 and i suddenly realized two things still bother me (in a good way) 1. do you remember 'that race' when Rin lost to Haru? and when Rin was crying, Haru was taking a step towards Rin, but he was too late and i keep wondering: what exactly did he want to do? 2nd thing. 12 episode Haru:"You are the reason why I..." it got cut, cause Rin tried to punch Haru, but hell, i really want to know what Haru inteded to say.
Hello there! Oh boy, do I remember. I will never forget that race, that sequence of Haru reaching out to Rin and Rin walking past him is still one of my absolute favorites of the entire series. It’s gorgeous and hits me right in the heart, I think that was the moment I truly started to fall and everything ;~;
I filled those blanks with the scenes that followed; when Haru caught up to Rin (which we saw in ep 10), he asked him what was wrong since he had noticed that something seemed off with Rin. So personally, I think Haru instinctively reached out to kneel by Rin and touch his shoulder or arm as a manner of comfort, and would have asked him what was wrong. He was worried and terrified and desperately trying to understand why Rin broke down when before he would have simply challenged him to another race. As for ep 12, I tied that unfinished sentence with the one that followed; so I’ve always assumed Haru meant to tell Rin he is the reason why he understood his reason to swim and who he swims for.
Just my takes, though!
You're totally right. If Rin (or Haru) were a girl, no one would deny their romqntic bond. I mean, look at this graphic: rebloggy(.) com/post/kyoto-animation-hyouka-beyond-the-boundary-kyoukai-no-kanata-free-iwillstillope/64205864590 :/
I remember that! Yeah, I was casually just discussing this with a friend, so I’m going to be lazy and copy-paste myself hahah: “I honestly feel that Kyoani took them as far as they possibly could within the boundaries of the type of show Free! is”. They come across as very romachikku because that is the way they are portrayed, and that obvious parallel to the main pairings of other kyoani works is the best proof of it, imo.

if you ever feel like a failure, just remember that jack crawford and the fbi arrested a vegan as the main suspect on a cannibal case
