“ … Make rainbows again, okay?

Ah yes. Very subtle, Kyoani.

Guess who has no life and decided to make two utau voicebanks using Haru’s and Rin’s voices just to hear them sing Magnet……….

labratinspace:

So you know how the general Free!dom headcanon seems to be that Haru wouldn’t like the movie The Little Mermaid because Ariel gives up living in the sea to live on land with Eric.

Well, I’ve been thinking… This might be the case for little Haru, but let’s say he watched the movie again when he was a bit older. I think in that case he’d empathize with Ariel. After all, she ultimately gave up the sea for love, we all know why Haru gave up competitive swimming…

Iwatobi Elementary is an irreplaceable location for me. The glittering windows, the butterflies flitting about the campus — the brilliance of everything in turn causes me to shine - - That is where I found, My Shining. One day I hope that we can fly together, and then the light would ….

Rin Matsuoka’s essay in grade school. (via tottorin)

Wait a minute, this sounds familiar…. I think there was something like this in High speed…. let me look.

*gets out High Speed*

Rin tried to do what he could to catch up, but when he made the touch he had just barely made fourth place. He didn’t even have the time to see Haruka dive in overhead.

All of a sudden, he felt a light and turned around. Haruka was swimming. Haruka was swimming while shining. His strong energy had become a shining light, and it was so dazzlingly bright it emitted from Haruka.

Rin was unable to move. He couldn’t take his eyes off of him. Rin’s heart was completely enraptured by Haruka’s gliding swimming, he was like a water bird dancing in the sky with it’s wings spread wide.

It was only after Haruka had made the turn that Rin somehow made it up onto the poolside, pulled by Makoto’s hand. With a huge lead, Haruka’s head rose to the surface. Then he started his stroke.

He has a catch like he’s going to hug someone. A supple elegant kick. A fluid rolling. Also, a high speed you would never imagine from that calm form.

That sight that transcended reality, captivated not only Rin, but everyone watching. No, not just watching. They’re feeling it. He was sure everyone here couldn’t help but feel the hot throbbing beat.

Haruka touched the goal. Without looking at their time, he easily climbed up onto the poolside. So easily that you could almost forget that he was just in a race.

— Rin Matsuoka’s thoughts in High Speed. (Chapter 7)

Oh

Haruka was swimming while shining.

OH

he was like a water bird dancing in the sky with it’s wings spread wide.

OH!

Yes… Rin…. a “Shining” you want to “fly” with….

HARU: “That is where I also found my other Shining.”
RIN: HARU! [still grabbing for the book] HARU!
HARU: “If we are able to fly together, then a sea of light that spreads out endlessly—”

Real Wave: Listen

Both: the pull of tomorrow
Haru: Instead of letting it go it was always smoldering in my heart
Haru: and then when we fought I realized my true feelings for the first time
Rin: I understand now what I need to overcome in order for me to be true to my own feelings
Both: the water always transmits the truth as if it was obvious 
Both: It’s my wave
Both: because it’s here, because it’s you, those thoughts are able to be true
Both: we’ll be able to smile in the future
Both: I feel so
Both: what’s transmitted while we’re in the same water makes us more secure in our dreams
Both: The pull of our hopes
Rin: From now on neither of us have any intention of losing to our biggest rivals
Haru: the answer we struggled to reach gave us more than we ever thought it would. now and in the past
Both: Facing forward we pursue it
Both: let’s dive in and feel it for ourselves
Both: It’s my wave
Both: whenever we were in a hurry or resisting, the water always grabbed hold of us and taught our lost hearts
Both: I will go
Both: all the way to wherever this current takes me
Both: with the power of believing we’ll be able to find tomorrow we’re aiming for
Both: It’s my wave
Both: because it’s here, because it’s you, those thoughts are able to be true
Both: we’ll be able to smile in the future
Both: I feel so
Both: what’s transmitted while we’re in the same water makes us more secure in our dreams
Both: The pull of our hopes

We definitely won’t forget: Listen
Rin: When you wrote those words crouching under the sakura tree
Rin: there was still a chill in the wind
Haru: being unable to wait till spring you take off
Haru: and just like the soft sunlight pressing on your back it melted away
Rin: I was always kind of distant from the memory because of embarrassment
Haru: it’s waiting for us to return to it
Both: it was too big to forget
Both: this sight will show us whether that’s true or not
Both: at that time we were searching for a short winter
Both: the entrance to summer
 
Haru: I probably could have stayed like that
Haru: just swimming like myself every day but
Rin: I wanted to swim like reaching out for my dreams
Rin: in the best relay with you
 
Haru: by swimming thought he water, opening a path, and moving forward
Rin: we are always free
 
Both: we thought we had changed but nothing had changed at all
Both: we got irritated and became some sort of weird rivals
Both: we ran into each other at that time, and did something we could only do because it’s us
Both: we definitely wont forget
 
Both: it was too big to forget

Sharkbait Drama CD Full Translation
Rin: Oh, Haru—I took first bath.
Haru: Ah.
Rin: Huh? Makoto already left?
Haru: Yeah; he said he had to put Ren and Ran to bed. There are some t-shirts in there; use whichever one you like.
Rin: Ah, thanks… what the heck is this?
Haru: Northern stoplight loosejaw-kun. When I sleep in that, I sleep deeply, as if I'm at the bottom of the ocean.
Rin: ... You're still as much of an enigma as ever. Oh yeah, about that thing in the bathroom...
Haru: The loofah?
Rin: No!
Haru: The essential oil shampoo?
Rin: NO. The toy--the dolphin.
Haru: Oh that.
Rin: That's the one you got at Iwatobi SC right? I can't believe you've still got it.
Haru: You got one too.
Rin: Yeah but it...disappeared somewhere.
Haru: ...Oh, I see.
Rin: Well, I can't keep useless crap like that at the Samezuka dorms anyway.
Haru: Are you sure you don't need to go back to the dorms tonight?
Rin: Yeah, I got permission to stay off-campus.
Haru: ... I never would have expected you to stay over...
Rin: Well it's been a while since I've been to your place! But still--there's the dolphin ornament, of course, but your room is the same as ever! You really haven't changed a bit.
Haru: The futon's over there--drag it out yourself.
Rin: Were you even listening to me?
Haru: Or would you rather we sleep in my bed together like we used to?
Rin: LISTEN TO ME! Ugh...dealing with you's made me work up an appetite. This is all your fault.
Haru: Don't blame me. Did you want something to eat, then? Just so we're clear, I don't have any meat.
Rin: Then what DO you have?
Haru: Macker--
Rin: ASIDE from mackerel.
Haru: .........nothing.
Rin: What the hell kind of house IS this? Fine...just whip up something. I heard from Makoto you're a good cook.
Haru: No better than most. ...All right, let's head downstairs then.
-+-+-+-+-+-
Rin: Ooh, mackerel miso! Looks tasty! Time to dig in~ ...FUCK that's salty! What the hell?! Did you mix up the salt and sugar?!
Haru: That's one of the failed dishes that Makoto made before.
Rin: THEN DON'T FEED IT TO ME!
Haru: It's fine if you just eat it at a 1:10 ratio with rice.
Rin: That's not 'fine'! Feed me something NORMAL!
-+-+-+-+-+-
Rin: Whew, that was good! Thanks for the meal~ Japanese food now and then isn't bad~ All right--next time I'm over, I'll cook YOU something.
Haru: You can cook?
Rin: Mmmhmm. I cooked for myself a bit while I was overseas. I can handle myself in the kitchen. ...Ooh, looks like you've got some cookbooks here...wait, they're all for MACKEREL dishes! Your diet is crazy unbalanced... Oh, this is...
Haru: Our graduation album--from elementary school.
Rin: This takes me back... Ooh, that reminds me--didn't we write some essays that were supposed to be published here? "The water is alive. Once you dive in, it will immediately bare its fangs and attack"--the hell kind of weird shit were you going on about here?!
Haru: HEY--don't read people's stuff without asking!
Rin: Ah--hey, Haru--
Haru: "MY SHINING--"
Rin: Huh?
Haru: "Iwatobi Elementary is an irreplaceable location for me. The glittering windows, the butterflies flitting about the campus--"
Rin: You fucking idi--
Haru: "The brilliance of everything in turn causes me to shine--"
Rin: YOU DON'T HAVE TO READ IT OUT LOUD!
Haru: "That is where I found it--"
Rin: Dammit, HARU!
Haru: "My Shining."
Rin: HA--RU--!
Haru: "One day--"
Rin: CUT--IT--OUT--!
Haru: "I hope that we can--"
Rin: FUCKING--BASTARD--
Haru: "--fly together, then the light would..."
-+-+-+-+-+-
Rin: ...Oh, thanks for pulling out the futon.
Haru: You didn't bring your pillow with you?
Rin: Who the hell would?
Haru: Can you sleep without it?
Rin: Don't make fun of me, geez.
Haru: ...Are you leaving early in the morning?
Rin: I'll leave after I wake up for my morning jog at 6. My body'll weaken if I miss even a day's training.
Haru: ...Then I'll go running with you.
Rin: Heh, fine by me. All right, g'night.
Haru: I'm turning out the lights.
Rin: ...Hmm...?
Haru: What?
Rin: There's...some kind of book under your bed...
Haru: Wait--that's...!
Rin: Ooh, so even YOU read these kinds of things...!
Haru: Stop, that's...!
Rin: Aww, what--are you embarrassed??
Haru: I'm...I'm not embarrassed...
Rin: Then what's the harm? ...All right, fine. I won't look. Relax. ...Oh yeah, you haven't taken a bath yet, have you? .........Go take one.
Haru: No, it's fine; I'll take one in the morning.
Rin: ......................Have you taken a final bathroom break?
Haru: Don't need one.
Rin: ....Heh, are you THAT worried about leaving me alone here? It's FINE; I won't look. I will absolutely not look at that book that you have right there underneath your bed. C'mon, you don't have to be embarrassed. All guys have books like that hidden under their bed.
Haru: ...They do?
Rin: Sure!
Haru: I see... Then...even you, Rin?
Rin: I'm going to have to give a 'No Comment' on that.
Haru: You dodged the question.
Rin: All right, I'm hitting the sack.
Haru: ...Okay, good night. (long pause) ...Rin? Are you asleep? (long pause) ...I'm going to take a bath.
Rin: Oh Haru...you fell for it! Now's my chance...!
Haru: OI!
Rin: Weren't you going to take a bath?!
Haru: I forgot my underwear.
Rin: DON'T FORGET THAT!
Haru: What's with that hand shoved under my bed?
Rin: ...Helping you look for your underwear?
Haru: You're not fooling anyone. Don't touch that book!
Rin: No way!
Haru: Give it back!
Rin: Don't wanna!
Haru: GIVE IT BACK!
Rin: What're you getting so pissed for, Haru? That reaction's just making me all the more curious! I'm definitely gonna see what's in it!
Haru: Cut it out!
Rin: Ugh, it's too dark to see. Let there be light...!
Haru: STOP!
Rin: Haru... You... "Famous Japanese Mineral Springs and Me Monthly"....?? And...with a DVD freebie...
Haru: ...I'm not lending it to you.
Rin: I DON'T NEED IT. Ugh, this is ridiculous now; I'm heading to bed.
Haru: Then...I'll go take a bath. And just so you know--that's a really rare book. You can't get your hands on it anymore. If you really really want to see it...I could be convinced to let you--
Rin: GET IN THE DAMN BATH.
-+-+-+-+-+-
Haru: ...Good night...Rin.
-+-+-+-+-+-
Haru: Shall we run along the beach?
Rin: Sure. (pause) Hey Haru...
Haru: Hm?
Rin: Well...I just remembered something is all. Gou went and displayed that thing in our genkan. You know, the dolphin toy. I'm heading out!
