"Who’s that?" He pointed at Rin, who was lying sprawled out by the poolside.
“They called him Matsuoka-kun, from Sano SC.”
It wasn’t a name that he’d known before, but now that he knew it, it didn’t make much difference. Haruka just wanted to remember him: the opponent who had annoyed him so. [x]
Rin: “From the moment I met you, my world has kept expanding.”
"Haruka rarely shows emotion and uses water as his reason to live. However, when Rin appears in his life, his entire world changes." [x]

"You might not remember it, but I still remember the day I first met you."

"I remember it, too."

Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre vs. Free! Eternal Summer

Can I just take a moment to appreciate

This is SOPAC. This is a real place. I have swum in this pool. I’ve raced in this pool.

They’ve got this place down to a T. My google maps screenshot doesn’t quite do it justice, but theyve drawn the entrance almost exactly right. The trophies and plaques are on your left as you walk in through the front doors. The layouts of the pool complex are spot on. The blocks, the scoreboards, the little yellow SOPAC symbol next to the diving tower, the colours of the lane ropes, the most minute details, heck, even the roof is almost exactly as it is in real life. I’m beyond impressed.

Rin was right about Haru all along.

Remember this quote?

Rin can’t move a muscle, can’t glance away. His heart is completely stolen away by Haruka, slipping through the water with wings spread wide like some great sea bird soaring through the sky.(x)

Rin always saw Haru like a bird, even before this last episode. image

Haru just needed to see it for himself.

How this scene should have happened. *fangirls screams heard from a distance* 

Inspired by this dumb thing I wrote.

  #rinharu  

Can we all agree that Rin is totally in love with Haru?!

We must all take a moment of our day to appreciate the little sweat drop on Rin’s face when he realizes that he has to admit to Haru that he had a school-boy crush.

Top image: The eagle that represents Haru, his future, and his freedom, seen throughout the series.

Bottom image: Doves that appear after Haru and Rin swim at the aquatic center in episode 12, season 2.


The difference between both images is striking.

In the top image, you see a lone eagle flying high on warm air currents. It’s free, but solitary.

In the bottom image, you see a pair of doves flying into the sunset. Doves are believed to mate for life, and they’re often used in symbolism to represent love, faithfulness, and devotion, as well as never being separated from the one you love. 

They are used to set off the contrast between Haru before and Haru after, when Haru tells Rin that he found it — his dream — and it’s clearly with Rin in Australia, or wherever else the path takes them. Rin needs Haru to show him the way, but likewise, Haru needs Rin. Their fates, their paths, are intertwined and inseparable, and without one the other would be lost. They are meant to be by each other’s sides.

Doves aren’t a subtle symbol of this. They’re a glaringly obvious metaphor that’s hard to ignore.
