** In response to the above, Sousuke only told Rin when he did because it became impossible to hide. Before he aggravated it in the elevator, his shoulder hurt and probably slowed him down, but it didn't stop him from swimming because he still had a fairly normal range of motion. He was convinced he could stave off being permanently broken until after the relay at regionals, and he didn't want Rin to feel bad for him or stop him from achieving the last attainable dream he had.

* For most of Eternal Summer, we see Sousuke twisting and stretching his ''left'' shoulder, but it turns out the injury is to his right. Is he ''not'' stretching the right shoulder because it hurts, or did the studio just forget?

** You answered your own question. Sousuke insisted on it and Rin didn't allow him until the rest of the team chimed in. Viewers would have called him an asshole if he didn't let Sousuke join and you might have realized by now that Free is more about emotions than bothering by the book, for better or worse. My problem is that Sousuke didn't tell Rin that this was going to be a problem until the very last minute, with the reason being "because I knew you'd cry". That's nice and all, but didn't he realize he would possibly be causing even more problems for his friend when even lifting his arm was too difficult?

* Ok, Rin, I know you wanted to fulfill Sosukes wish and all and Sosuke insisted on it... but WHY THE HECK [[spoiler: would you allow a severly injured swimmer on your team in a very important race, not only risking your teams' chances but above all the swimmers health?]] You are supposed to be responsible and all that and while I get why you allowed it from an emotional standpoint I would have really apprechiated you to use your brain too. ... Also, did Rin ever face any consequences? As I said, he's the captain, he's on some level very responsible for them, so... was he ever held accountable for that stunt by his school or did they just say "Well, at least he didn't spontaneously swap teams, so we'll let it slide."

** Haru can take care of himself, but it is sad how it looks like it has affected him emotionally.

* Regarding Haru's home situation, is leaving a teenager to practically fend for themselves illegal in Japan? Haru mentions his parents only once and no one else says anything about their absence.

** Well, there is one scene where she is going to correct them and gives up because it got tiring (''"Itís Kou--ah, nevermindÖ"''). From that moment on she just stopped asking. I think the whole "Call me Kou!" thing was more intended as RuleOfFunny than it came off as; I believe Gou/Kou didn't actually hate being called Gou, she just didnít find it to be girly enough (seeing as Nagisa and Makoto called her Gou and Haruka called her Kou, Iím guessing she used to alternate between both of the names or something when she was younger, so the former two boys probably didnít think it mattered all that much to her).
