Anonymous asked: "Niu, I'm so upset at the lack of Iwatobi boys this season, especially Haru and Makoto. I get that we need to establish that Rin has changed and is building his own team, and that we need to give Momo, Nitori and Sousuke especially some characterisation, but it's like the anime isn't about Haru anymore when it should be. 4 episodes already and Haru and Makoto have been shoved aside. I can only hope that from now on we remain focused on Iwatobi since it looks like the Samezuka stuff is settled"

I miss Iwatobi boys, too, especially Haru and Makoto ToT. It’s good they’re trying with Samezuka and introducing the new characters well, but for me episode 4 started already be a bit too boring. It has been so much Rin lately (possibly because the director is the biggest Rin fangirl ever :’D) and I’m not exactly sure am I comfortable how Rin’s actions in season 1 were brushed off so easily in season 2 - he feels a bit too saint like compared to the season 1. But, there are still many episodes we haven’t seen yet!

Guessing from the preview the next episode will be Iwatobi episode! And we got Rei episode and Rei was lifted up to the pedestal he deserves to be on! 

And, we’re still in the beginning. I do feel that there will be more emphasis on Samezuka in the future, more than in season 1 (I remember reading somewhere before season 2 started airing that the season 2 would concentrate more on Samezuka, but they didn’t say how much exactly). We still have plenty of chances seeing Iwatobi boys and Gou, so don’t fall into desperation :3

zadoorknobs asked: "(1/3) the anon you just answered made me think about this. when i was a competitive swimmer i didn't have many friends in our club. i felt a lot of them were kind of mean and unfriendly and i didn't get along with them. the only people i was friends with i already knew either from other clubs but even then, i never really bonded with anyone much at training sessions. the way the training was run, i think, didn't allow for much of that either. the only time we got to -"

(2/3) socialise really, was when we went away on a training weekend. It was a lot of hard work – we were up at 6am every morning and training all day - but I really enjoyed it. watching Free! kind of makes me sad that our club wasn’t the close-knit group of iwatobi or samezuka. I think I really understood rin in the last ep. I felt like everyone else in my club was pursuing swimming as a purely individual sport like sousuke (and how rin used to) and I guess that’s what I was made to feel about it too. But now I’ve realised that I thrive when I have people to support me - just like rin does. I hope one day I can join a swim club where I can have that kind of connection with people! Sorry this got kind of long but I really just wanted to splurge out my feelings haha. It’d be cool if you could publish this. I’d like to see what other people think about this too

Anonymous asked: "(1/2) idk about you but i feel a bit dodgy about sousuke after the last ep. i get that he cares about rin, but surely he would know rin well enough to know how much his friends motivate him. so why tell him to choose between his dream and his friends? if someone asked me to do that, it would be a horrible choice to do. i can see how he's being logical; faster times= better chances at winning the relay, but rin feels like the bonds he has forged positively correlate to how driven he is..."

Ah, the last part of your message didn’t arrive, but I give my thoughts for this first part.

I think what Sousuke did was very human; trying to cope with a situation or a thing based on HIS views, expecting it to be the best for everyone because it works for him the best (and assuming everyone would agree and do the same thing). We tend naturally believe that our way is the only way and if someone goes the other way we might feel need to scold them and tell them they are wrong (because they don’t do the things same way as we do). It’s a matter of personal belief system based on personal points of view. 

What comes to their childhood when they first clashed, well, how many 12-13 year old are mature enough to handle different points of views and personal belief systems, when even adults can’t do that most of the time haha? :’D 

Rin and Sousuke both love swimming and they take it seriously. They see the sport different way and empower from opposite things; Rin from team mates and Sousuke from personal skills. Pretty much the similar thing as with extrovert-introvert duality; extrovert loads their batteries with human contact and socializing, introvert by avoiding human contact and being alone.
