It’s so precious for Rin-chan and Haru-chan to wear the same jersey.

@seaweed14 "I hope my ask wasn't too negative, I just remembered reading your thoughts about the magazine cover the other day and how lately it seems like people are trying to tear their relationship down, and it was nice to know I wasn't the only one :)"

seakittens:

Aww no you’re not too negative. Personally, I feel bad because I don’t like being cranky about this. But it’s so much more than shipping to me. The creators have said time and time again that Haruka and Rin are the protagonists. They clearly are. The story is about how they change each other. It literally begins and ends with them. Again, this doesn’t even have to be shippy; it can just be about their friendship. I am just utterly baffled at how little they are featured as such in official art. I know it’s a money thing, but it’s also damn obvious it’s a money thing so that salts me more. Because I don’t know too many other series that do this with the main protagonists. It’s bizarre. But since the protagonists are not the fan-favored pair together, they get less than a handful of official arts and only when it’s important.

idk maybe we should take heart in that, that when they ARE featured, it usually means something since it’s so rare. Like the super tender and intimate underwater picture. But I’m biased so I might be reading too much into things. And I don’t want to downplay the importance of the BroT5 either because it’s crucial. But it’s clear what has significant impact on the storyline. What causes growth.

It’s just a bit frustrating sometimes that such a beautiful and redemptive story of friendship gets sidelined in art and then reduced to “oh they’re just rivals” by fans, even their own at times. You don’t take someone who is “just a rival” to another country to find their dream and you don’t go running around like a crazy person screaming your rival’s name when you think you’re going to lose him. These two are such good friends and I’d give anything if everyone could just acknowledge that. Forget ships. That is all I want. Everyone to be able to look at Rin and Haruka and say “wow they really care about each other and their friendship.” And I do think that’s what the new official art shows and I’m so grateful to it.

the things japanese fans on twitter come up with… x

"DAMMIT SOUSUKE I TOLD YOU STRIPES ARE OUT OF FASHION

WHY DO YOU KEEP EMBARRASSING ME LIKE THIS

I THOUGHT YOU WANTED TO BE A TEAM, TAKE THIS MORE SERIOUSLY!!!!

WHY DIDN’T YOU TELL ME YOU DIDN’T HAVE ANYTHING ELSE TO WEAR, YOU IDIOT”

"Because I knew you’d cry"

"I’M NOT CRYING THE FASHION WORLD IS CRYING

and then the Samezuka boys asked Rin to show them a wardrobe they’d never seen before

they all ended up in increasingly ridiculous pajamas

the end

The only thing rin takes more seriously than swimming is fashion so this is 5000% accurate.

On their account, the artist described this as “new husbands HaruRin exchanging goggles.” I’m very much on board with this idea :>
