Free! Eternal Summer poster illustration in Newtype Magazine (10/2014), illustrated by key animator Shinpei Sawa (澤真平). So many large posters this month. 

High five. Fist bump!

Okay I’ve seen a lot of people concerned about this part and worrying that Haruka is going to choose to go pro just for Rin’s sake.

Let me tell you, I HIGHLY doubt even Rin would want Haruka to choose that path just to help him get ahead.

Sousuke can say what he wants and try to influence Haruka in Rin’s favor, but in the end, Kyoani isn’t going to cheapen Haruka finally discovering what path he truly wants to follow by having Haruka swim only for Rin.

Besides…

This isn’t the first time Haruka is hearing it. He knows how much it means to Rin for them to swim together. Rin has only spent all of the last two seasons reminding Haruka how much it means to him. In season 1 Rin forcefully told Haruka to swim for him because he was hurting and he needed just that one time so he could move on. Haruka could have said no, but he went ahead, since it was just supposed to be that one race so that he himself could be free. Haruka became free by the end of season 1. He no longer feels any guilt toward Rin, and it’s clear by his responses to Sousuke (“this doesn’t concern you”, “why are you always so concerned about Rin” “so what” etc) that using “help Rin achieve his dream” isn’t going to get Haruka to budge. 

And if you think “Well, Sousuke just doesn’t know Haru that well, but Rin knows how to work him!” there are plenty of times Rin tries to influence him to spice up a race and Haruka stays unaffected:

(Just one example)

It’s usually one little thing that Rin (or the Iwatobi Boys) says that fires Haruka up:

(Just one example)

Rin doesn’t do it to manipulate Haruka, not anymore. Rin is like Makoto and Naigsa and Rei: he wants Haruka to find his dream and to be happy in the path he chooses. As much as he wants Haruka to go pro with him, he would be happy if Haruka chose another path, too. He might be disappointed, sure, but I think he would absolutely respect Haruka’s choice.

I think that respect shows in this question:

Haruka wouldn’t be solely swimming to placate Rin and help Rin get ahead in the world. He would go pro because he wants to continue swimming with a friend of his that is dear to him.

If you wanted to, you could probably read the following as Rin trying to con Haruka into following the same dream as him. But really, if Haruka chooses the same path as Rin, their dreams will not be the same.

I choose to read it as Rin saying “Haru! Look, there’s a whole world out there waiting for you to discover it! From the moment I met you, my dream has been growing until now when it’s shining above me, calling to me to reach out and grab it. Your dream is out there! Go get it!”

Rin is going to show Haruka that there are so many pools out there, and Haruka has the potential to swim in all of them if he wants to.

mile high cluuuuuub damn y’all the fic writes itself

hey come on they are clearly not sleeping together right now.

save it for the flight back.

During those 18 hours I really wanna see them have a long, open and calm talk about all kinds of things. So when they get of the plane they can leave some of the negative emotions there, and enjoy and discover new fantastic things in Austrailia! :D

If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do? 

Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.

Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?

On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.

If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10th

Everyone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown
