Omg tell me makoharu will be canon pleasee
I can’t tell you that because none of the pairings are strictly canon; as in, blatantly romantic relationships. People headcanon and ship to their heart’s desire, but, realistically speaking, Free! doesn’t have any canon romantic relationships. It’s focused on friendship and all that jazz. Now, that doesn’t stop people, such as myself, from shipping certain pairings pretty passionately. :) Just because none of them are technically canon, doesn’t mean that you should let that stop you from shipping them. If you like a pairing, and you want to create content for said pairing, by all means, go for it! At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what the show’s creators say regarding shipping and whether certain pairings are canon.
