no but remember when this cm came out, and tumblr went crazy for 3 days over the swimming anime. Countless of photosets and gifs, then the fanarts and cosplays. (gosh remember, tsundere, senpai, shota and pimp?) BUT IT WAS “JUST A CM” AND WE’LL GOTTA LIVE WITH IT.
BUT THEN LIKE 2 MONTHS LATER:
AND FINALLY THE DAY ARRIVED
AND WE GOT NOT ONLY 4 BOYS BUT 5 AND IT’S CALLED FREE! (in that moment we all wondered why the hell ‘free!’)
Everyone was like YOOOO MEGANE, looks so serious but hell we didn’t know what was Rei Ryugazaki gonna be on episode 3 and 4
OH and the pimp wasn’t the pimp anymore and and he was in other school and rivals?!?!?
Remember when episode 1 finally aired, and THIS WAS WAY BETTER OF WHAT WE COULD’VE ASKED FOR
Then nagisa called Rei beautiful and that he was gonna take responsibility
GOU IS THE FANDOM
the tension between rin and haru
the fluff between makoto and haru
REMEMBER WHEN WE THOUGHT REI WAS GONNA DIE ON EPISODE 5-6
that week of angst omg
AND WHEN WE LEARNED ABOUT RIN’S PAST AND THEN HARU LOST AND OMG
But at then end they are all adorable kids and i just wanna them to be happy, and i don’t know how to survive this week and how i’ll live through and after the last episode
maybe i should start crying but i just really fell in love with these swimming kids and i don’t want them to go
