I JUST REALIZED THAT WHEN RIN WENT TO HARU AND MAKOTO’S ROOM TO TALK TO HARU, HE ACTUALLY WANTED TO HAVE A NICE, CIVILIZED CONVERSATION WITH HIM ABOUT HARU’S FUTURE PLANS. IN OTHER WORDS, RIN COULD’VE EASED HARU’S MIND IF HARU HAD BEEN THERE.

THE NIGHTMARE COULD’VE BEEN AVOIDED. THE FORFEIT COULD’VE BEEN AVOIDED. THE LOCKER ROOM SCENE COULD’VE BEEN AVOIDED.

WE COULD’VE HAD IT AAAAAALL

Can I just give my two cents on this one.

To Haruka, he and the water share a bond no person can ever hope to understand- intimate but based on respect.

What I’ve noticed is that the water is like some sort of mirror. It shapes into form based on the feelings of whoever enters it’s territory.

In this case. Haru.

When Haru’s mind was clear and free of any doubts or insecurities, the water danced with him. Every swish, every splash collided with Haru’s movements. 

And it was beautiful.

But during the regionals…

Haru was in darkness. So the water mirrored his heart.

Because there was hesitation and fear…the water hesitated as well.

Instead of syncing with Haru’s swimming, it became the chains that binded Haru to a hault.

And so Haru stopped. 

And the chains were no more.

It was almost like the water itself wanted to tell Haru…

"You’re heart is not Free"

"That’s enough, Haru"

"Don’t struggle anymore"
