I totally get missing seeing RinHaru interact because their every interaction is a thing of beauty and god knows seeing more SoL interactions between them animated is a must after the Drama CDs and all the extras.
Any worrying though I definitely do not get. Why feel concerned over that when in the first season they only actually talked in what, 5 episodes? 6 at most? Everything else came either in the form of flashbacks, Haru being hyper-aware of everything Rin related (which he still is), Rin having a Haru tunnel-vision (which he still does) and third-party commentary (which we have gotten in every episode so far apart from ep 5).
And despite that lack of actual interaction S1 still managed to be basically a RinHaru shoujo because their intertwined stories were the main focus of the narrative itself. Even any individual character development they had ended up being a vital cornerstone towards their EP 12 resolution.
And it’s the same thing now.
S1 ends w/ Haru/Rin’s resolution. In S2 we want to thoroughly, hotly, draw their new after-resolution relationship from a new perspective. What part will Sousuke play in Haru/Rin’s new after-resolution relationship? [x]
I'm sure we all agree that Episode 12 was worth the wait, don't we? I am sure it will be the same now (they do have a shoujo-climax to top, after all). We just need to be a bit patient and enjoy the ride :’)
(sorry for the preaching, tag! just wanted to try and cheer up those I’ve seen feeling down about the subject)

I think this was necessary, it was such a beautiful chapter.

please, from where I’m standing it looks like their hips are pointing towards each other. you tell me who’s seeing things hahahah
No but seriously though, what I like about material like this is that we’re supposed to look at Sousuke/Rin as both a parallel to Makoto/Haru and a big contrast. These are two bonds that fall into the same trope (childhood friends) but whose dynamics are very, very different. And what is the common link between them? Rin and Haru. So it’s really nice how even details like these help draw that point home, imo.
