Haru is smiling. Makoto dropped the -chan and just called him “Haru.” There is so much happiness and camaraderie and no annoyance whatsoever. Haruka is really able to sense the support that Makoto has always given him, and now he’s smiling because of it. There’s so much character and relationship development in this one scene, I can barely believe it.
