One Style Final!

1 5 Days Until the Prefectural Tournament!! This is a work of fiction.
Any resemblance to real persons, groups or events is purely coincidental.
Amazing, Haruka! That's another personal best! The training camp from hell paid off! What about me? You need to work a little harder, Nagisa.
Still, I think we've all come a long way in such a short time.
And Rei's been improving his butterfly time.
It helps that Rei is pretty built from the pole vaulting he's done.
But just that is not good enough! We must aim higher! Find a proper coach! What? Find a coach now? It's never too late to start.
Even if someone can just help provide some last-minute conditioning, we'll be in better condition for the tournament! A coach would certainly help, but there's nobody available— That's why we have to look harder! Not necessary.
Yeah, Haru probably doesn't need a coach.
Rage on, until you have to look away from the blinding light You showed me a city as in a twisted mirror I dive toward the faint blue With my hand I felt a world I had known nothing of When we race I feel I'm pulled into a maelstrom I only chose the drop point Show me the truth Now's the time for our dreams, but we're ready for grief Say goodbye r Freedom machine r Rage on, until you have to look away from the blinding light The sun is blazing on my world I don't feel like turning around On your mark There's no going back on our path Get set, here we go Nanase One Style Final ! He's not home? Oh.
The door's unlocked.
I'm coming in.
Why are you here? Oh, you're home.
I'm here to challenge you to a race, obviously.
I only swim free.
Wait! Come on.
I'll show you how different we are now.
Dad? Why? Dad! Matsuoka Are you okay? Were you having a nightmare? Everyone, I printed out the pictures from our training camp.
Lemme see! Yes, yes.
You took a whole bunch.
Everybody's having fun.
Look at this! Haru has a funny look on his face! And he's actually looking at the camera for once.
What is with this picture?! It's not beautiful at all! Um, preserving the moment? Anyway, look here.
There's something behind Mako! Oh, that's Ms.
Amakata wearing a hyaluronic acid pack.
Hyalu what? Hyaluronic acid.
Don't scare me, Nagisa! Sorry about that.
Can you guys keep it down? Is this Samezuka's swim team? When did you take this, Gou? I did some scouting on the second day.
Wow, that's our capable manager.
Did you use sex appeal agai— No sex appeal involved! And I got plenty of data in addition to the pictures.
These are the swimmers who will be in the 100m and 200m breast with Nagisa.
These are the swimmers in backstroke with Makoto.
This is who will do butterfly with Rei.
I'll have their individual swimming styles and other information recorded in this secret data book by tournament time.
Oh, and my brother is in The 100m free.
Yes.
He didn't enter any other events, just so he could focus on his race with you.
Haru says he doesn't care about his times or winning races, but he's motivated when he's racing Rin.
Matsuoka.
Why are you only entered in the 100m free for prefecturals? Your best event is the butterfly, and you've posted great times in it.
You just focus on your own event.
You swim the individual medley, right? I entered the 400m free! I wanted to enter the 100m, but our school has a lot of swimmers who are faster than me.
But you're good enough to participate in free or butterfly or any event you want! So why?! Is it because of Nanase? Hey, what's wrong? Captain, I just Nothing's wrong.
Why didn't you say anything to Matsuoka? Why are you so upset? Well, I'm sure he has his reasons.
Rin isn't swimming butterfly or the relay? Is it because Haru isn't in those? Why does it matter if Haruka is in an event? That's just how they are.
What's that supposed to mean? Now, now.
We decided to stick with individual events too, so we could focus on our strengths.
I wanted to swim in a relay.
You want to be in a relay, Rei?! Yes, I rented a video of the Olympics.
It was beautiful to watch four athletes swimming different styles in succession to complete a race together.
I was especially impressed by how beautiful the butterfly form was when touching the wall.
Personally, I think it's very important that your finish be beautiful, and this shows that athletes around the world feel the same way— Huh? What is this, Haruka? Half Luck Half luck? Huh? What's going on? Half luck? Never seen that before.
Does that mean half your luck is good? What's the other half? Nice! How does that make sense? What? I think it does.
Focus on your studies.
Your business will do well.
You'll make lots of good memories.
You'll be reunited with the person you want to see.
Try not to lose anything.
You will make good friends.
Your wishes will come true with help from others.
I have to disagree.
What?! Matsuoka, you're not taking the bus to prefecturals with everyone else?! I need to go somewhere else first.
Where are you going? Why do you care? Are you stalking me or something? Are you going to see Nanase? I'm not! I told you to stop worrying about me and focus on your own event.
But! What is it? I'm upset.
Huh? You're only entering the freestyle event when you have the ability to do more, while I can't even enter my preferred event.
I feel so useless.
Sorry if I offended you.
No.
You have endurance.
The 400m free is a better event for you than the 100m.
Th-Thank you very much! I'm going to see my dad.
Er, I thought that your father passed away a long time ago No! Don't do it! You can't die! I'm not gonna die! I'm just visiting his grave! Thank you very much.
Oh, I don't think I told you about my dad.
Yes.
Apparently, he was the best swimmer in Iwatobi when he was young.
He won tournaments all over the place and brought home lots of trophies and medals.
His dream was to become an Olympic swimmer.
But he never achieved that dream.
He got married and had me.
He became a fisherman.
Then he died, just like that.
Late one summer, a huge typhoon hit.
A lot of fisherman died when their boats sank.
My dad was one of them.
I want to achieve the dream my dad couldn't.
And there's someone I have to beat before I can make that happen.
Is that Nanase? He has incredible talent, but all he talks about is nonsense like how much he loves water and wants to feel it.
He doesn't swim to set records or win events.
And I still couldn't Matsuoka If I can't beat him, I can't move forward.
0 Days Until the Prefectural Tournament!! It's Today!! Sorry about that, Haru.
Yeah.
Today's the big day.

Haru! Mako! Over here! Check this out! Rei was so nervous that he didn't get any sleep! I wish I had nerves of steel like you.
You'll get there soon enough.
Just relax.
That's right.
Okay! It's time for the tournament! Let's do our best to make a good showing and get ourselves a bigger budget! Yeah! Swimming Tournament Iwatobi High School.
Um Yes, go ahead.
That reminds me.
When we gave our names at a tournament in grade school, they started checking the girls' list.
You're right.
Rei also has a girly name, so it's too bad.
What's too bad? I don't understand what you're saying.
It's been a long time since we've been in this atmosphere.
Brings back memories.
Are you okay? Haven't you been in track tournaments? Th-This is my first swimming tournament Here's the program for the first day.
They're starting with free in the morning.
Haruka is in the fourth heat.
Wait.
Haru and Rin are in neighboring lanes.
Nanase Haruka Matsuoka Rin The heats were drawn based on qualifying times, right? Yes.
That means they're even.
The eight fastest times from each event advance to the final and qualify for regionals.
It'll be fine.
No need to get nervous.
Just swim the way you usually do.
The most important thing is to never give up.
There's a quote by Napoleon.
Five minutes make the difference between victory and defeat! Five minutes? Ms.
Amakata, that's too long.
Huh? Well, see Well, guys.
Do the best you can in each event.
Let's make sure we can leave with no regrets! Yeah! That's Oga South High School, or Oga South for short.
They have a swimmer who's known as the Whitebait of the Sea of Japan.
They have someone with that nickname? And over there is Saijouin High School.
They have a swimmer who's known as Joe the Flying Fish.
He has an incredible vertical.
That seems kind of cool.
I want a nickname, too.
You always stretch yourself out more near the end of a race.
How about Bamboo Nagisa, then? Wait, why bamboo? Bamboo has nothing to do with swimming.
Did you collect all of that data by yourself? Well, I'm the manager.
You even have notes on their muscles.
But many things can't be expressed through notes.
Muscles are best in the flesh! All of these muscles simultaneously in one place! Wonderful! Marvelous! Hey, Gou! It's Rin's captain.
Over here, Gou! I told him to stop calling me Gou.
Over here! Hey, over here! I don't see Rin.
Maybe he already headed over to the assembly area.
Haru Win your race! I'm here, as promised.
Of course.
I kept my qualifying time low so I'd be in the same heat as you.
No need for that.
We'd still meet in the final.
I can't wait that long.
Besides, there's no guarantee that you'll make it to the final.
No one else matters.
This is between you and me.
I look forward to it.
Today, I become free.
Set.
Go! Haru and Rin are up next! Who are you cheering for, Matsuoka? Both of them! Haru! Fight! Set.
Go! They're fast! Rin's gotten a lot faster! He's pulling ahead of Haru! Haru's falling behind in the first leg? They're entering the turn! Haru's catching up! Haru! Haruka! Matsuoka Rin Nanase Haruka Matsuoka Rin Nanase Haruka Haru lost No way.

Uh, back when I was in first grade, before I knew Haru What are you talking about, Makoto?! That's not what I meant! Oh, in that case Revenge in the Medley ! Next time: "Revenge in the Medley!" We'll beat him at karaoke! Not that kind of medley!
