I WANT HARU TO COMPLAIN AND TREAT HIS NANNY LIKE TRASH UNTIL MAKOTO IS A PRECIOUS BABE AND IS NICE TO HIM AND COLORS WITH HIM AND PLAYS WITH HIM UNTIL THEY GET TUCKERED OUT AND FALL ASLEEP. I WANT BABY MAKOHARU.
Well … okay. I have thoughts on the episode that are separate from what you posited, but I feel like I have to address what you said first.
A disclaimer: I am very, very much like Makoto when it comes to his relationships with those close to him, particularly when it comes to his love for Haruka. Like, the way he feels about/treats Haru? That’s how I feel/act/treat those that I develop strong feelings for. So believe me when I say that I can very, very well see how it could become harmful and toxic for him. Saying that, I can also say that it isn’t destructive for him right now, largely in part because Haru cares about him just as much. Having been in a toxic, one-sided relationship with a Makoto-like personality, I can say with 100% certainty that Makoto isn’t currently in one. He could be, it could get that way if both Haru and Makoto let it progress to that point, but he isn’t at that point right now. So let’s just quash that notion before we go further, hm?
But to build on it more … Makoto raced Haru not for Haru, specifically (especially because it was the opposite of what Haru wanted), but more for himself.
Makoto dies of cancer at the young age of 16. Never having made a real friend because of his terminal illness he clings onto the mortal world, longing for something he never had. One day he sees a young boy jumping into puddles by the road. Distracted, the blue eyed boy steps into the road unaware of the oncoming traffic. Makoto manages to save him at the last minute and from there on he haunts the young boy he soon comes to learn is Haru. He opens doors for the other when he’s distracted, keeps the bullies away, and reminds him to eat food besides mackerel. Haru, all the while, is unaware of the polite ghost.
Haru would love that. I bet it was his idea.
OH SWEET PEAS
YES PLEASE YES
And like Makoto totally thinks he’s fine in his baggy work clothes or whatever but once Rin and Haru see him without a shirt they blow up and try to get to try the tightest shirts for to to try on
NO NO THIS IS GOOD okay here’s one of my jealous!haru headcanons
the best part would be that haru doesn’t even know that he’s jealous, he just keeps getting more and more annoyed as people come up to makoto to like…….. just talk to him and makoto is just being friendly, laughing and smiling (it’s haru’s laugh and smile darn it, hmph!!!) at everyone and stuff
and makoto notices (of course) and he’s like “haru why are you angry” and haru’s like “I’M NOT ANGRY!!!! I’M JUST…….???????” and he thinks to himself like “oh god i’m angry?? why am i angry???” and he thinks about it and realizes that he was actually super jealous and then realizes he’s jelly because hE LOVES MAKOTO and starts blushing like mad
but makoto is like “????? oh god haru your face is red aRE YOU OKAY!?!?” because i love oblivious makoto i’m sorry
SOMEONE SHOULD DRAW THIS
SOMEONE OTHER THAN ME
Even though the story’s main focus tends to lie between Rin and Haruka’s character growth, Makoto has proven to be a critical character in the first season, and his fear of the ocean showed a very unique side to a character who is usually well composed. I have no doubt that…
what i’m looking forward to most in free! eternal summer is Sousuke and Rin running into each other.
the iwatobi gang will probably be trailing behind Rin, and they’ll be confused because both of them will just be staring with open mouths at each other.
AND THEN, Nagisa the…
