haru can read his boyfriend so well

LOOK AT THE FUCKING LOOK HARU GIVES MAKOTO. SOMETHING IS UP. SOMETHING IS GOING ON AND I KNOW IT. MAKOTO IS GOING TO DO SOMETHING THIS SEASON THAT’S GOING TO BREAK MY HEART AND IT’S LITTLE SCENES LIKE THIS THAT CONVINCE ME OF THAT. BECAUSE LOOK. EVERYONE ELSE IS LIKE ‘OH THAT’S COOL MAKOTO MAYBE YOU CAN SWIM BUTTERFLY IT WILL BE COOL’ BUT NO. NO, HARU KNOWS MAKOTO IS UP TO SOME SHIT. HARU KNOWS SOMETHING IS WRONG BECAUSE HARU CAN READ MAKOTO JUST AS WELL AS MAKOTO CAN READ HIM.

All this RinHaru and Rin hate is really bugging me. Because honestly, Rin is doing nothing more than being a good friend. 

Take a look at this screenshot here. It’s about Haru admitting that he’s so upset about the fight with Makoto (which was obvious to Rin, who normally can’t read Haru well, but yet can tell that only Makoto would make Haru so taciturn and fucked up) 

And look at Rin’s face. He is sad. He is sympathetic. He seems genuinely upset that Haru and Makoto have had a fight. This is NOT the face of someone who has a crush on Haru and is secretly thinking “yay Makoto dumped him so I can be his rebound”, NO, Rin is better than that. This is his “aww my fav couple broke up that sucks” face. 

He even reassures Haru saying it’ll be okay, saying that ‘well me and MY boyfriend fight all the time so…“

And then notice that Haru says it’s his first fight. Excuse me, Haru, this is NOT your first fight. You and Rin have fought SO many times and Rin even had the decency to apologize when you didn’t. If I were Rin, that would bother me. I would think 'what so fighting with me means nothing and fighting with Makoto makes you want to leave the country??’

But Rin is a sweetheart about it. 

I also want to point out how nice Rin is being to Makoto. He was the ONE person who cared about Makoto’s future, or at least bothered to speak to Makoto about it. He was the one person who outright stated he had faith in Makoto’s abilities. And can we not mention the new drama CD which basically makes it canon that Rin and Makoto can hang out and have fun and do cute things together completely outside, unrelated to, and without Haru. To be honest, the MakoRin relationship is probably one of the healthiest friendships out there given that other than the married couples (MakoHaru, SouRin, Reigisa) we have all these one-sided longing relationships and jealousy/rivalry/hatred relationships (think of Haru, Sousuke, Kisumi, Rin, Nitori, maybe Makoto too, in whatever order you want, I don’t want to be explicit and piss off any shippers here)

ALSO the other drama CD has Rin suggest that someone kiss Haru (obviously he meant that someone to be Makoto since he’s far away himself and Reigisa weren’t going to do it) before promptly hanging up. I’m sorry Rin but that is the most random piece of advice ever and I can’t see why a 17-18 year old guy would really believe that "someone” kissing Haru would work. However, knowing how gullible Makoto is… well we can see where Rin may have intended to go with it. 

Rin is probably one of the strongest supporters of MakoHaru. Maybe that was why he felt awkward sharing the bed with Haru in the first place, and tried to have the arrangement. Haru wouldn’t mind because he knew Makoto wouldn’t mind, but Rin may have been worried that it would upset Makoto, or worse Sousuke (who isn’t subtle about his dislike/possible jealousy towards Haru). In my eyes the bed-sharing scene wasn’t forced fan-service at all.

Hi I just needed to say I really agree with you on RinHaru. Even if I'm not into it I can totally see why people ship it, but it being called canon or "more canon" than other pairings just irks me a lot. And I would very much enjoy hearing your MakoHaru thoughts bye ///

Thank you! I was really worried this was going to be some angry message haha. But yeah, I don’t hate the ship or people who ship it, I just can’t see them as anything more than friends!

As for makoharu, woah oh ohhhh here I go. First of all, the moments between Makoto and Haru are so much more natural and easy going, rather than pushed for fan service. Plus, I see it as a much healthier relationship because Makoto really understands Haru, he always knows what he’s thinking and the things to say to him, which is super adorable. Plus the amount of canon moments (without it being forced) is amazing. The way that Makoto always glances at Haru, the way Haru always offers his hand to Haru to help him. (Which is also really great because I feel as though it symbolizes how Makoto will always be there to help and save Haru.)Not to mention Makoto always stays close to Haru as well or even stands next to him like cute boyfriends ahhhh. It’s not just a one sided thing either, the way Haru smiles or lights up around Makoto or gets really worried. It seems as though sometimes Haru can be really emotionless towards Makoto, but I think maybe Haru knows that Makoto can read him so easily that he doesn’t feel the need to be emotional. As long as Makoto understands, what does it matter? I mean. Here’s some fantastic examples if you wish. 

Just look at all those moments. If this doesn’t scream cute boyfriends to you then I don’t know. 

If we want to get into specific moments, I can do that as well. Moments such as when Makoto pulling Haru out of the pool, or the tub, or even in the opening (from the darkness of the water), as I previously said just shows he’s always there to help and save him. 

Look at the way Haru is looking at Makoto and vice versa. Look at them just gazing into each others eyes. Makoto is just giving Haru the look, the look of utter love and affection and god, just look. It’s not even just in this either, Makoto is always giving Haru affectionate looks, I don’t know about you but I don’t gaze at my friends with lovey dovey looks every 5 minutes. Also, Haru is giving makoto an expression that he is just amazed that someone is actually able to pull him from the darkness of himself, to make him feel a certain way. Someone who understands him and is there for him. Honestly, I feel like if it weren’t for Makoto, then Haru and Rin would have never had any close friend moments either because I feel as though Makoto was the one who made Haru understand that it’s okay not to be so emotionless all the time. Makoto was the one who made him understand that he can care for people and not just the water. Makoto was the one who made him realize that, which in turn eventually made Haru realize that he wanted to be Rin’s friend again. 

Now as for other moments, need I even bring up episode 6? Actually, I will. 

Need I even say more, I mean come on? These are hardly anything compared to all the moments that these two have. Sharing sparklers, sharing popsicles, nearly locking lips I mean come on, they pretty much read each other’s mind. If we want to go into end cards too we can. They basically wear each other’s clothes, go shopping together, go fishing together, walk to school together, and may I mention that Makoto has been to Haru’s house enough times that he knows how to get in and feels comfortable to wait there and even fall asleep until Haru comes home. BOYFRIENDS.

Makoto knows how to bring Haru out of his shell, how not to push him, how to read him, hell, Makoto knows Haru. Haru is so comfortable around Makoto as well, Haru is fully aware that “Hey this guy really knows me and cares for me.” Which is why haru can act the way he does around Makoto. Nobody, but Makoto can understand Haru that way, can be so naturally in sync with him. There are several moments throughout the show were Makoto has to go and explain something about Haru or simply says “I don’t ask.” Because he either just understands it or understands that it’s something best to not pry into. They are literally so connected. Can you say soul mates? Even people who make the show have said ‘you have to wonder what the relationship between them really is.”

I probably barely even scraped the surface with the chemistry between these babies. I’m just gonna end off with some cutsie wootsie moments between these precious hubbies.
