As promised, we did see them next summer. So this season, more than anything else, was about Haru’s (and some of the others’) futures. One of my small hopes was that for Haru, it wouldn’t be swimming related. It was something that I drew from the ED, but of course, you could argue that those were the dreams they had when they were kids and those are always bound to change. But I did enjoy Haru’s other talents being mentioned or shown briefly throughout the show and I really wanted him to pursue one of those. I think that kind of path fits in more with how he treats his swimming. But alas, that wasn’t how it played out, but that’s okay, I still love Haru.
