Rin: “Makoto, you need to learn to quit spoiling Haru by now.”
Makoto: “But I’m not spoiling him!”
MAKOTO AND RIN ARE REALLY SIDE BY SIDE OMG
Of course.(~‾⌣‾)~~makorin swimtales~
OKOK IF YOU HAVENT READ HIGH SPEED OR READ THE RECENT TWEETS YOULL BE SOMEWHAT CONFUSED SO I’LL GIVE LINKS LATER BUT HEAR ME NOW
I MUST POINT OUT THE MAKORIN PARALLELS BETWEEN HIGH SPEED AND EP 6. I mean i may be grasping at straws, but when Rin had sensed something was off with Makoto after Haruka nearly drowned, he had addressed it, but he didn’t press any further:
"Without saying anything more, Rin kept walking behind Makoto. If Makoto said that he didn’t remember, then Rin wouldn’t interfere. He didn’t want to forcibly pry into things that Makoto didn’t want to talk about. That was why he didn’t intend to enquire any further; Even if I did ask, it wouldn’t make much difference, he thought.”
- High Speed, Ohji Kouji
Although it’s not because he doesn’t care or stops caring. Later on, Rin goes to Mako’s side when he stops swimming suddenly to check if he was ok.
"Rin, who had just climbed out of the pool, jumped back in again and swam over to Makoto. ‘What’s the matter, Tachibana?’"
- High Speed, Ohji Kouji
Now, in episode 6, he addresses Makoto’s fear, albeit indirectly, with Gou:
Because wow that’s totally not the face of someone who was caught doing something he would never admit doing.
He then (as recently confirmed aaahh) wakes up in the middle of the night because he still had a bad feeling about Makoto:
But once again, as the tweet says, he decides it doesn’t concern him and doesn’t press farther.
And then we see that later on, he really does run by the tents just to check on the boys, meaning he still does watch out for them/Mako in his own way:
I JUST. SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE. Makoto brings out a certain caring side of Rin, albeit repressed. I think Rin hesitates to do anything not only because of his own personality, but because he acknowledges Makoto’s personality in a different way than the other boys. Like he knows that there are things that people prefer to keep to themselves (maybe like his situation with his dad and mako’s with his fisherman friend), and so he leaves it be and keeps it to himself because that’s how he deals with it. But then again Mako is presh so there is always that shadow of doubt of whether or not he’s okay, so Rin has to be sure. Waahh.
I… Im sorry I could be looking too much into this but it’s been bothering me the whole day.
Nono, that’s ok, shh bby, one day.
Kyoani event translated tweets
High Speed! translations
Okay so, a few days ago in the past Kyoani event it seems there was some script notes about the free! episodes made by the Kyoani staff, my friends and I (twitter gang) found some of the notes about ep 6! and asked Paradigmation for some help (translating) so all the translation credits goes for her!
I’ll post every tweet along with their translation:
@ko_ochima: 6話絵コンテ。恋バナのところ。真琴は『遙に恋バナ…？！』って感じで動揺したらしいｗｗｗ 相手が滝だったと知ったあとは『ハルらしいや…』で真琴の絵にだけ『ホッとして』って書いてあったｗｗｗ
Episode 6 storyboard. The part about Haruka’s love story. It feels like Makoto was upset by it. (lol) Then after finding out that it’s a waterfall, he goes “That’s very Haru-like…” That picture of Makoto has a note saying ‘relieved’ (lol)
The original work has a ton of notes from the production staff!!! In the scene where Haruka and Makoto split and share their ice cream, I thought Makoto was handing Haruka half of his, but it seems in reality it was Haruka’s ice cream that Makoto split, and he was just handing him back his half…! I can’t handle this
Rin’s jogging scene at the end of episode 6. In the storyboard, Rin who sees the crushed tents (there were instructions to make the tents look squashed) thinks “Aren’t these Haru and the others’…?” and worries about Makoto. But it seems like he saw the four swimming towards him in the sea like idiots, so he runs off.
Episode 6 storyboard. In the panel where Makoto has lost his consciousness, a note saying “give us a sexy mako please” was written (lol)
Episode 6 storyboard. It seems that Haruka’s feelings when he can’t find Makoto who is missing from his tent → (Discomfort over the disappearance of those two at this time of the night together)
@ko_ochima: 6話。告白シーン。遙は本気の眼差しの真琴に少し驚いて、そのあとの瞳がアップになるシーンでは、真剣に訴えてきた真琴に戸惑ってたらしいｗｗ あと、その前の真琴の話（水泳部を作ったのは～のところ）は真剣に聞きつつも『リレーを泳ぐ気はない状態』だったみたい。
Episode 6. Confession scene. The seriousness of Makoto’s gaze shocks Haruka a little; after that in the intense scene with their eyes, it seems Haruka was bewildered by Makoto’s serious words (lol) Also, before that when Makoto was talking (his choice in making the swim club etc), it seems while listening sternly, he was in the state of not wanting to swim the relay.
@ko_ochima: 6話。レストハウスに入るシーン。何度も『真琴を気づかう遙』というコメントが入ってるｗ またその気づかいは真琴にも伝わってて『その気づかいが嬉しい』とのコメントも！ 渚にカップルみたい～と言われたところは『真剣に心配してるのに茶化されてムカッの遙』らしい。
Episode 6. The scene as they enter the rest house. There were numerous comments about how Haruka is caring for Makoto (lol) and that concern should be conveyed to Makoto. “That kind of concern makes me happy!” also came up!
The part where Nagisa says “like a couple” etc., it seems that Haruka frowns because his serious concern is being made fun of.
Episode 6. The scene where Haruka makes a rare joke (“There’s a shadow over there”). Makoto actually got scared; at this time, Haruka shows rare guilt for having scared Makoto.
@ko_ochima: 6話ラストの視線を合わせるまこはるのところ。『目線で会話する二人』と波線つきでコメントありｗ さらに『大切（キラリマーク付き）』と丸印で強調されているｗ この時の真琴→遙へのメッセージは→『心配しなくても もう大丈夫だから』それに対して遙は呆れつつも真琴の表情から『大丈夫か…』
At the end of episode 6 where Makoto and Haruka’s eyes meet. There’s a note regarding “The two who can converse with gazes” (lol) In addition to that, “important (sparkles)” and bullet points were emphasized (lol) At this moment, Makoto’s message to Haruka is “You don’t have to worry, I’m alright now”, but in contrast, Haruka’s stare questions whether he is really alright.
Episode 6. Scene where Rin wakes up in the middle of the night. Rin who looks out the window notices how bad it is outside and worries about Makoto. But after that, he thinks “it’s none of my business” so he goes back to sleep.
I think this is just explaining how much of a married couple they actually are (and that Rin, was worrying over Makoto!) but god, ‘the two who can converse with gazes’ just get married already!
