Huh? Wait, hold on. So Makoto is going to Tokyo and Haru is going to.. Australia?! With Rin? Say what now?? Really did not see that one coming. Not at all.

Trust me fangirls and fanboys, that is all the plot one needs to know for this episode. Because everything else that happened before, after and in between was more Haru moping (he is obviously not happy the way he is now, but is in serious denial), more others worrying about Haru moping and Mako and Haru having a serious one-on-one heart-to-heart break up.

So rant time~ why Haru? Why are you running off into the sunset with Rin? He has Sousuke, for crying out loud! They even live near each other! Just like how you and Mako live near each other! So they can’t swim together anymore because Sousuke is injured and has decided to give up swimming. Big whoop!! You’re supposed to be happy with Mako. Why did you have to have that quarrel? People fight, but then they talk things through and kiss and make up. You don’t fly to Australia with another guy because your best friend decided to Tokyo and kept it all hush hush from you! Did you ever stop to think that maybe he did not want to put more pressure on you or hurt your feelings? It was because you were all moppy mope mope that he waited this long to tell you. And you just HAD to blow up in his face! Nooo… just when I thought the Mako Haru pair would find happiness, aqua eyes sweeps in at the last moment and essentially hands Rin over to swishy, telling him that Rin NEEDS him. Darn you false advertising last episode preview!! With the fireworks and all! How could you lie to me?? Sighs… All hope is lost *dejected*

Fantasising aside, keep your ears out for Suzuki Tatsuhisa in this episode. During that squabble scene between Mako and Haru, his exasperated desperation completely blew me away. He sounded so heartbroken… *heartbreak* and in spite of Tattsun’s brilliant performance, Shimazaki Nobunaga was by no means overshadowed. His Haru this week had the right amounts of frustration and exasperation. And his recovery after his outburst was very nicely dealt with. A huge difference from how he handled it two episodes ago. I’d say the fight scene is probably my favourite Free! voice acting moment so far~

So what does the future lie in store for us the Free! characters??

Muscle-scope. First sign of muscles: 3:30. By this point, muscle-scope has become purely obligatory.
