You know what, I felt for Rin too in this episode and the fact he was at the receiving end of Harus frustration and anger but this is not fucking about Rin.
"Poor Rin, he might not be able to swim with Haru in the finals"
"Poor Rin, he and Haru won’t be able to swim together in uni"
I’ll say it again; this is not about Rin. I’m sorry but Rin has his life in order, he has his future planned and Haru doesn’t
Rins future doesn’t have to depend on Haru in the same way Harus doesn’t for any one else
Yeah Rin would have been hurt but you know what? Unconsciously or not he played a part in Haru snapping like that. It’s not his place to get angry at Haru like that because of his lack of understanding. Yes he is his friend but Haru is having his own issues and all Rin can complain about is how Haru ruined any kind of chance to be picked up by scouts? His priorities are in the wrong place. He doesn’t go in and ask Haru if he’s feeling ok, not once this episode did he do that. When Haru stopped dead in his tracks he still didn’t think to ask “Hey you doing ok?” because it was clear as day Haru wasn’t being himself.
Just I’m so fucking angry what the hell.
