Revenge in the Medley!

1 Yes! Matsuoka Rin Nanase Haruka Haru lost This is a work of fiction.
Any resemblance to real persons, groups or events is purely coincidental.
Haru! I win.
This means I'll never swim with you again.
Huh? Never.
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 Revenge in the Medley ! Ready, set.
Go! Oh, there you are! Sorry about being late.
Coach Sasabe Where were you?! You're late, Goro! Thank you for your help the other day.
And I appreciate you taking time from work to come support us.
Oh, it's no big deal.
I really think we've met before.
No, I don't think Jeez, did you come here to hit on girls? I wasn't hitting on her! Haruka already swam his freestyle heat.
Darn, I missed the prelims.
But I can still watch the final.
He won't be in the final.
Huh? Haru didn't pass the prelims.
He lost?! I thought I didn't care about winning.
Wasn't I Wasn't I supposed to become free after racing him? Matsuoka! You did it! You qualified for the final! And you beat Nanase! Yeah, well.
You go kick some ass out there too.
Yes! Samezuka Academy Mikoshiba in lane 4 has just set a new tournament record.
Wow, that's impressive.
Isn't Mikoshiba Oh! Samezuka's captain! I thought he was just really enthusiastic, but I guess he's actually a good swimmer.
Right, Gou? Y-Yeah What's wrong? Haruka isn't back yet.
Oh, you're right.
He's probably taking a shower.
He's taking a long time though.
I'll go check on him.
Rei! Wait up! Hold on, Mako! Rei! Wait up, Rei! Don't dwell on it.
That's how sports are.
That's not it.
Huh? I wanted to watch my brother and Haruka swim together.
But that wasn't what I was expecting.
Wait, Rei! Why are you stopping me? Well, it's because Calm down, Rei.
Aren't you worried about Haruka? Rin! You guys.
Right, you're all swimming in the tournament.
Hey, Rin.
Have you seen Haru? Haru? He hasn't come back yet.
Was losing to me that big of a shock? He's the one who said that he didn't care about winning or improving his time.
He's not upset about losing.
There must be some other reason.
What? What else matters in swimming other than winning?! There is more.
At least, Haru thought there was something more.
That's why he wanted to race you.
And I'm pretty sure you're the one who taught him what that something was.
When we swam in that relay in grade school, you— What do I care?! I beat Haru! That's all that matters.
A relay? Did you guys swim in a relay with him in the past? We didn't mention that? You only told me that things happened in the past.
If you were that close, why are you— Now, now.
Calm down, Rei.
We need to look for Haru right now.
No, we should let him be.
Knowing Haru, he probably doesn't want to talk to anyone right now.
And we have our own races coming up.
Let's focus on what we can do right now.
Yes.
Where's Haruka? Oh, we couldn't find him.
Man, what's he doing? Makoto's about to swim.
I'm gonna go get him! I want Haru to watch us swim! Nagisa?! Back then If Rin had won, would I feel differently now? Rin is swimming to compete in the Olympics.
What about me? Why do I swim? Hey! Haru! There you are! Mako's race is about to start! Hurry up! I'll pass.
I don't think so! Let's go! Go, go, go, go, go, Makoto! Go, go, go, go, go, Makoto! Swim, swim, swim, swim, swim, Makoto! Swim, swim, swim, swim, swim, Makoto! Not loud enough! You've gotta shout from your belly! Especially you, Rei! Don't be shy! Yes! Fight, fight, fight, fight, fight, Makoto! Fight, fight, fight, fight, fight, Makoto! Go, go, go! Go, go, go! Go, go, go! Go! Go, go, Makoto! And turn! And turn! That's it! Last spurt, last spurt, last spurt! Last spurt, last spurt, last spurt! Last spurt, last spurt, last spurt! Last spurt, last spurt, last spurt! Last spurt, last spurt, last spurt! Last spurt, last spurt, last spurt! Last spurt, last spurt, last spurt! Last spurt, last spurt, last spurt! Last spurt, last spurt, last spurt! Last spurt, last spurt, last spurt! Last spurt, last spurt, last spurt! Good job! Tachibana Makoto (Iwatobi High School) Man, Mako was so close! He almost had a fast enough time to qualify! He was so close to making the final! Okay! I'm up next! Yeah, go get 'em.
Ready, set.
Go! Go, go, go, go, go, Nagisa! Go, go, go, go, go, Nagisa! Swim, swim, swim, swim, swim, Nagisa! Swim, swim, swim, swim, swim— Haru thought there was something more.
That's why he wanted to race you.
And I'm pretty sure you're the one who taught him what that something was.
I couldn't do it! It was close.
You made a huge push at the end.
I believe it's finally my turn.
Will you be okay, Rei? I've got this.
Despite how I may look, I'm better in actual competition.
Ready, set.
Go! Wow, his form is perfect.
Huh? Look at Rei's goggles.
They slid off! It must've happened when he dove in.
Go, go, go, go, go, Rei! Go, go, go, go, go, Rei! Swim, swim, swim, swim, swim, Rei! Swim, swim, swim, swim, swim, Rei! Fight, fight, fight, fight, fight, Rei! Fight, fight, fight, fight, fight, Rei! Go, go! I apologize.
I wasn't good enough.
You shouldn't say that.
You were able to swim a personal best.
That's a great thing.
You might've qualified if your goggles hadn't slipped off.
Er, that seems a little far-fetched.
In any case, everyone performed well.
Excellent work.
There's a sense of accomplishment, right? Yeah.
Let's start preparing for the next tournament.
Oh? Where's Nanase? It looks like he left without us.
What? Really? Yeah, he wasn't feeling well.
Oh Well, nothing we can do about that now.
Matsuoka, can you take it from here? Yes.
Then I'll be leaving now.
It's been a while since I got my blood pumping.
Nice job! See ya.
He came here on that? Is his work gonna be okay with this? It's over.
Yeah.
It would've been nice to go to regionals.
After we practiced so hard, I was thinking at least one of us might make it through.
But it's not that easy in reality.
There's more to swimming than I realized.
Understanding it in theory isn't enough to win.
I'm getting fired up.
Well, it's a little late for that.
No, it's not too late.
There's still the second day of the tournament tomorrow! But the events we entered were all today.
The second day is the individual medley and the relay Gou, don't tell me that I'm sorry! I signed you up for the medley relay in secret! What?! I told Ms.
Amakata about it.
So if we win the relay We can go to regionals! That's crazy.
This is way too sudden.
We didn't practice at all for the relay.
Why didn't you say something sooner? Because it sounded like Haruka didn't want to be in a relay.
Let's do it.
Huh? Rei? This is our final chance! We haven't practiced for the relay, but it's still worth a shot! No luck.
He isn't home yet.
I don't think.
We can enter upstairs! Got it! Uh, wait! Is this really okay?! He's not on the second floor! He's not in the bath! You shouldn't run around someone's house when they're not Haru Let's wait for him to return.
Will Haru agree to swim in the relay? What was it I really wanted? What was I trying to do? What was it all for? He's still not home.
Where'd he go? What if Rei! Don't say scary stuff with that look on your face! I didn't say anything yet.
But Don't worry.
Haru's not that weak.
Oh, his cell phone! Let's call him! Haruka has a cell phone?! Why didn't you say something sooner?! Well, I never see Haru actually using his cell phone Anyway, let's call him! You have reached the voice mailbox.
He's not answering.
Please leave your name and a message after the tone.
Leave a message.
Haru? Where are you right now? Please hurry home.
We're all worried.
I'm sorry, Haruka! I signed everybody up for the medley relay! Yeah, so let's swim together tomorrow, Haru.
I'll be fine! I'll have the theory memorized by tomorrow! Rei, that's a sure sign that you'll fail.
I just have to memorize the theory for how not to fail too! Your message has ended.
Will Haruka come home after listening to that sloppy message? It'll be okay! Our chaotic message has what it takes to touch Haru deep down! Wait Haru left his cell phone here! What?! Haru usually doesn't carry his phone around with him.
It's getting late.
We should head home.
But I don't think Haru will swim tomorrow.
We'll have to forfeit.
Makoto? Playing new message.
Haru? Where are you right now? Please hurry home.
We're all worried.
I'm sorry, Haruka! I signed everybody up for the medley relay! Yeah, so let's swim together tomorrow, Haru.
I'll be fine! I'll have the theory memorized by tomorrow! Rei, that's a sure sign that you'll fail.
End of message.
Let's swim together, Haru! I'll have the theory memorized! It has to be you! I want to swim with you! Makoto, Makoto.
Haru? We have a relay to swim, right? Yes, hello? What?! Haru did?! He's going to swim? That's great! I'll call Ms.
Amakata right away! Are you sure about this? You haven't practiced for the relay at all, right? I don't know how we'll do, but we'll give it our best shot.
And this isn't our first time.
But it is for Ryuugazaki.
Nagisa and Rei aren't here yet.
Sorry we're late! I'm sorry! Man, what were you guys doing? You're late! Actually We were practicing the exchange in the pool at school.
That eliminates the possibility of Rei completely failing! When did you Haru I'm thrilled that we get to swim in a relay together again.
Let's do this together, Haruka.
Okay, time to show everyone that our training paid off! Yes, that's why we're here! So much enthusiasm.
Okay! Let's give it our best shot! Yeah! Matsuoka! Come with me! Quick! What is it? It's not time for Samezuka's relay yet.
No! Nanase's club is in the relay! Huh? W-Wait for me, Matsuoka! They signed up for the relay? Mako, you can do this.
Fight.
Yeah, wish me luck.
Ready, set.
Go! His stroke is a rough but dynamic stroke that leaves everyone behind It hasn't changed at all.
That's Makoto's stroke.
And I can't forget Nagisa's stroke.
How he speeds up after the turn And how he creates the illusion that his arms extend when he swims And him Is that supposed to be butterfly? Pathetic.
Why is someone like you swimming with them?! I don't need an answer right away.
For now Make us feel the splash Bathe in the radiant light Let's be free and enjoy the day This is our private pool Be ready for love Kick as suits you I want to feel the pool I can feel the splashes I cry that I can't see the evening sun I can feel the butterfly Our chances of winning are based on trial and error (in the future) Let's jump in later (take it easy) Our throat is wet (throw water on your face) with the surge of emotion (and feel your breathing go rough) Let's do something leisure mode (I stay cool) Show your heart Make us feel the splash Bathe in the radiant light It will never end Look hard at summer Be ready for love, love I held out my hand and felt the splashes Hey, have you heard of the Squid Festival? Hold on, Nagisa.
Why are you talking about a festival? We're in the middle of an exciting medley relay.
The Squid Festival is held around this time every year to promote squid.
I want fried squid! I'm looking forward to squid ink soba.
Next time: "Hesitant Loosen Up!" Hesitant Loosen Up ! This doesn't tell me what the next episode's about.
Should I go with thick or thin noodles? Doesn't tell me a thing
