Am I kicked out of the fandom yet or
let’s talk about this please
Sousuke keeps referring to dreams and dreaming, something that we have seen Rin do so many times before and something that has been addressed in today’s episode multiple times, but the preview for next week shows us something completely new.
what the preview is about is not achieving dreams but recognising dreams as what they are - not real. whether they are not real at the moment or never will be real.
now why is this so fucking heartbreaking for Sousuke? this boy has the talent to achieve his dreams and he was so close to it too - he got scouted long before everyone else did. he was literally a step away from his childhood dream and it was all ripped away from him by something that striving to achieve his dreams probably caused.
"I wish I could continue dreaming the dreams I had back then". Sousuke would rather live in the oblivion of hoping and dreaming and not knowing than be where he is now - completely torn apart.
but what really struck me in this preview is Rin telling Sousuke to wake up. Rin, who is constantly dreaming and aiming high and hoping and pushing himself to achievement, who has gone through his father’s dream and has finally found his own, a person who is obsessed with achieving his dreams, is telling his friend to wake up. he is telling Sousuke that his health and his well being are more important than any dream. he is showing that all along it was all For the team and for his friends. he is showing Sousuke that they don’t have to swim a relay together to have a bond or to matter as a pair. Sousuke translates to more than a fellow swimmer or teammate, he is more important than a dream because a dream will always be nothing more than a dream, what reality brings is something completely different.

lol until I came to tumblr I didn’t know Kisumi was a character’s name so I was very confused on why Makoto said kiss me and then everybody started saying kiss me kiss me kissmekissmekiss… yeah this happened
oh my god that sousuke one
A very good way of going about explaining this issue. It’s good to see something positive come from Tumblr.
HOLY SHIT. THIS. THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO TELL PEOPLE. SHUT YOUR MOUTH ABOUT MEN VS WOMEN. @_@
this is literally so important
This is the best example and illustration I have yet to find. If more people realized that this is what equality is pushing for then we would be better off.
