Rin is such a Doo-doo Head…

I just finished watching the seventh episode of Free! and I’m just so mad right now.

I wasn’t expecting Rin to be such a cunt. I thought it was all just a huge façade. I thought he actually wanted to be in Haru’s arms again friends with Haru again but after this episode, there is no doubt in my mind that he has finally washed his hands clean of Haru. Or is that what KyoAni wants me to think?

How dare he fan the flames of my hopes >=[ There is no forgiveness

It’s nice that he wants to make his father’s dream come true; I give him props for being such a committed person to finishing what his father had started for himself but at the same time; why is he so angry with Haru? Why does he loathe him so much? Is it jealousy at the fact that he isn’t gifted as much as Haru with the natural talent and calling for swimming?

I could go on with the questions but I’m too tired for that. I have some understanding of why he feels the way he does but I’m sure he could tone it down a little. He probably thinks he has the right to be dramatic.

Yeaaaah right -_- with your shark teeth. You're gonna want to swim with him again.

Yeaaaah right -_- with your shark teeth. You’re gonna want to swim with him again. Watch.

I would have thought that as he grew older, he’d realize the error of his childish ways in the past, brush it off and come back to Haru. But he’s so stubborn. He’s a bit selfish too but what to do. Haru accepted him for all his issues and tissues and what did he get?? Hurt.

HaruLook at that face. I felt so bad for him.

And another thing!!

How in the blue hell is it that Haru didn’t qualify for the next round..and he came SECOND?? Not even third. That isn’t right. I don’t follow up with the rules of swimming (yet it’s my favorite sport) but he had the second best time. That should have made him legible to qualify for the next round – regionals. That made no sense to me.

And another thing: I don’t think Rin has the right to boast. He got to the finish at just about…what? 1.2 seconds ahead of Haru? He needs to calm himself down.

He’s not gorgeous anymore.

I am through.

On a side note; I really think Haru would have won if he wasn’t so focused on actually winning.

    I think there were several heats, and the top scores from each heat goes on to the finals.

    And I can kind of understand Rin’s anger, at least from the side of Haru. To name a few, I have nice hair and good memory, but I don’t do anything with my hair, and I don’t want to become a doctor/lawyer, etc. You wouldn’t believe the number of people who just become irate that I’m not ‘using my talents’. And that’s family. Who’ve known me all my life and my interests and everything.

    Not to say that Rin isn’t a fuckin’ asshole. But he’s understandable. He just needs to accept Haru and be his friend.

      I understand that. It happens to me too. You better do something with your beautiful hair! Lol, I really love hair xD

      I thought about it some more but couldn’t really keep awake to actually put all my thoughts into the post. I understand him but I’m just very upset that he doesn’t even want to be Haru’s friend anymore. I thought beating him was all he wanted to do not cut him off ENTIRELY.

      But I thought their race was like the third heat or so. Man…poor Haru. Now I’m depressed for him all over again.

        Each heat is made up of a certain bracket of speeds, I think, so heats 1-3 winners, or at least 4 or so of them, had better times than Haru did?

        From what I remember of the Olympics- and this confused the hell outta me as well- people from some heat in a race, even if they won first or second place, wouldn’t place in the final because they didn’t beat the times of the others.

      o_o that means Haru was completely off his game then…if that’s the case…

    Poor Haru. All he wants is for them to swim together again. To enjoy the water together </3

    Well, I already felt that he will lost to Rin because he's not his usual self – not caring for his time etc. Maybe because it IS a competition but, still, he's not enjoying it. Also, I think Rin needs this victory for him to move on… Haru has other chances and it won't be long before he emerges as the victor again… I feel it.

      Right? And Haru just crushed him.

      Well that’s true. I still think Rin is going to come back to Haru. Or at least I hope he does because it’s so obvious that Haru loves being around him.

    It’s a success for the presentation of Rin’s character when the audiences are reacting towards his harsh attitudes, something we got to be impressed with eventually. Isn’t it more enjoyable when we occasionally have a character to love and hate at the same time? It would be so mainstream having just the usual tending of character impression. Great review anyways!

      It’s more enjoyable, yes because I never expected him to even think of cutting Haru off completely. I thought his main goal was just to win against Haru but I was wrong. So wrong 😦

      And thanks 🙂

    I personally attribute Rin’s immaturity to him having the mind of a grade schooler in the body of a hot teenage guy. It’s really really odd to see. But yeah, the original novel the anime is based off they’re all little kids so… yeah you can kinda see it in eps like this.

    I laughed at your commentary though. So spot on.

      Yeah? Well that explains a lot >_> and I hope his little fanboy doesn’t get any strange ideas =_= I’m real wary of him xD

      Hah, awesome. Glad it made you laugh ^_^
