The Saddest Moments:

•Makoto listening to his friend be praised for his swimming when Makoto hasn’t been scouted, which means he won’t be able to keep swimming with his best friend

Haru caving under the pressure and stopping what he loves above everything else, swimming; all of this confirmation that he is not free

Rin after hearing Haru’s outburst and realizing that Haru doesn’t care about swimming in uni which is Rin’s dream because uni is the only other chance he has to swim with Haru

Sousuke hunching over in the shower as he is wracked with pain, a pain that could keep him from swimming and winning the relay with Rin, which has been his dream since childhood
