This episode shed a lot of light on Sousuke, and the hardships he endured to get here. Part of me appreciates his determination and passion for swimming, but there was also part of me that was concerned about him repeatedly injuring and recovering his shoulder. I almost thought this would end up like Kaleido Star…oh the feels….
Either way, I think it really showed that Sousuke and Haru were more alike than I originally thought. Samezuka did an awesome job and of course congrats to Iwatobi! Next week’s episode looks like it’ll be packed with drama, so I can’t wait!
