Is this porn
People hating on Haru for finally standing up for himself and telling Rin off
and you know what i’m not surprised
GOD FORBID HARU HAS IS OWN WANTS AND NEEDS, AND GOD FORBID HE FINALLY SAYS HE DOESN’T WANT TO DO SOMETHING THAT ALMOST EVERYONE HAS BEEN PRESSURING HIM TO DO
what a selfish asshole am i right
i mean, we get an episode where haru finally, FINALLY flat out says he doesn’t want/care about going pro. he finally says “NO I WANT THIS”. he actually stops swimming in a middle of a race because he realized he didn’t want to do it. SUDDENLY HE’S AWFUL, HOW DARE HE NOT TAKE RIN’S FEELINGS IN CONSIDERATION, HOW SELFISH!! RIN, WHO DIDN’T KNOW WHAT HARU IS FEELING BECAUSE HE IS LITERALLY NEVER AROUND HIM IN THE FIRST PLACE TO KNOW
the only reason why rin looked the way he did is because he DIDN’T KNOW haru felt that way. that’s it. even during the episode rin says haru tells him nothing. and later haru tells him it’s none of his business before blowing him the fuck out. not for “m-muh rival doesn’t want to swim with me ;_;”
and honestly WHO GIVES A SHIT IF RIN’S FEELINGS WERE ACTUALLY HURT, he didn’t give a shit when he hurt his friends feelings for years
AND HE GOT NO FLACK FOR IT ANYWAY SO
Because it’s not just “more screentime”. It’s “more screentime at the expense of Iwatobi”.
It took until episode 5 to have an episode that didn’t focus on Rin in any shape or form. Even Rei’s supposed episode had him playing a major role. And even then, in episode 5 there was a needless cut to Rin fawning over his muscles for little reason.
We’re getting more screentime of Iwatobi now that the season’s conflicts are starting to come into play…but Iwatobi is the supposed focus of the series. Rin is a main character, yes, but the other four are at Iwatobi and Haru is the protagonist - a protagonist that basically did fuck all until episode 8 or so. When four of your characters are in one place and two are in the other, it would make sense to give more focus to the place that has the majority of your main cast, right? Except…that is not what has happened.
I am not complaining about character expansion for Samezuka. I am complaining about focus on that to the exclusion of the rest of the cast.
