I was just re-watching the ep to gather the caps for the RinHaru Moments Masterlist… and I had to stop mid-way during their beach scene because I just couldn’t contain my appreciation for it. I wasn’t going to write about it but it just wouldn’t leave my mind, so this is just shameless self-indulgence ;~;
I’m so awed by how incredibly well directed the whole episode was; and at the story-board too, of course. It’s amazing just how well they used every single minute, so that every line the characters say becomes an important stepping stone leading to Haru’s realization at the end.
And the little details! Like the minute changes in their every expression. And above all - the fact that Haru does not tell Rin that he has “heard enough” until Rin brings up his dreams.
Good God, talk about a subtle yet poignant layer of characterization. It’s details like these that make Free! (and Haru) such a joy to watch and analyze.
