Furious All-out!

1 This is a work of fiction.
Any resemblance to real persons, groups or events is purely coincidental.
So, what do you want? I have two questions for you.
Huh? What are they? Then here is my first question.
Why did you suddenly decide to swim in the relay? 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 Furious All-out ! Why did you suddenly decide to swim in the relay? I changed my mind.
You came out here to ask me that? That answer does not convince me.
You've been fixated on racing Haruka all this time.
Your reason was that you couldn't move forward until you defeated him.
And in the last tournament, you beat him.
Doesn't that mean you've achieved your goal? My goal isn't to beat Haru.
And it's not to win tournaments in this country.
I aim higher.
My goal is the world.
The world? Very well.
Moving on to my second question.
How do you feel about Haruka? Huh? In grade school, you and Haruka were close rivals.
I saw old pictures of you guys when we were at Coach Sasabe's house.
You used to smile all the time.
With Haruka, Makoto, and Nagisa The four of you were always together and having fun.
So what made you change after going to study abroad? Why didn't you contact Haruka or any of the others after you returned to Japan? What happened while you were abroad? You used to be good friends, so why? You swam in a relay together, so why? You must've been thrilled about swimming in a relay with them! Aren't you the one who understands more than anyone how great that relay was? Shut up! I let you talk, and you think you can spout all the stupid logic you want?! Why do I have to explain myself to you?! Because I'm a victim.
I was originally on the track team, but I ended up joining the swim club.
After watching Haruka swim, I wanted to swim like him.
Practice was hard at first, but it started to grow on me.
Eventually, I was having fun swimming with everyone.
At prefecturals, I finally swam in a relay with them.
That was the first time I really understood relays as more than just a theory.
I realized how fun they could be! I can still remember how it felt.
We were finally united as one! We felt like a real team! But they all keep talking about you! Rin! Rin! Rin! That's not my problem! Like hell it's not! Bastard! It's your fault that Haruka stopped swimming! Huh?! What're you talking about?! Haruka felt guilty about beating you in middle school! So why are you people acting this way?! I don't get it! You beat Haruka in your last race! Isn't that enough?! Why are you swimming in the relay now?! What do you want to do?! What do you want from Haruka?! What will it take to satisfy you?! In that case what about you? You weren't involved in any of this, so why are you giving me all this grief?! What do you want to do?! I I want us to become the best team at a tournament.
I want to swim with them as a member of that team.
That's all I want.
If you interfere, I will never forgive you.
Is Rei okay? I think he'll be fine but I'm a little worried.
Damn that Rei Doesn't he realize that an athlete needs to take care of his own health? Hey, go check on him.
Oh, isn't this the first time we've gone to Rei's place? I live nearby, so I've dropped by a few times.
Oh, what kind of gift should we get him? We should definitely get him a melon! Muskmelons There won't be any under 1,000 yen.
Do we go with strawberries, then? Wasn't it strawberry milk ice cream that made him sick? Oh, that's right How about bananas? Should we even be bringing food if he has an upset stomach? Are you sure it was something he ate? Huh? Or was it what I said yesterday that's bothering him? Um Heya, Rei! We're here to see you.
Why is everybody here? You weren't at practice today, so we came to see you.
Oh, I was Hey, you look like you're gonna be just fine! Gou and Ama were worried too.
Goro was worried you weren't taking care of yourself with a tournament coming up.
Everybody was worried about me? Of course.
It was the first time you've ever missed practice.
It'd be one thing if Nagisa missed Hey, what's that supposed to mean?! Sorry, okay? Oh, these are incredible.
Are they from middle school? Yes, but that's all in the past.
But now he has all these swimming books! You're right! You've read all of these books? Oh, yes.
I've got all the theories down.
You're not supposed to say that, Rei.
You'll set yourself up to fail! Why would you say that? Rei, did you really go see Rin? I told them everything.
Sorry, Rei.
It's okay.
Yes, I did.
Was it because I told you about our past? No, I had my own reasons for wanting to meet Rin.
But it's okay now.
I'm done worrying about him.
It's not my problem.
Okay, then.
The four of us are a team now, Rei.
Haruka Yep, we need you to contribute to the team.
That's right! Every member is irreplaceable, Rei! Yes! Let's take a break then! Why did you bring melon bread as a gift? Melon Bread Because an actual melon would be too expensive.
This is really good though.
Here, Haru.
Open wide.
No, it's okay Well? Isn't it good? Losing moisture Are you okay, Haru?! Hey, Rei! Bring something to drink! Quick! Yes, I'll be right back! Haru? Haru! The drink that goes best with melon bread is barley tea.
The Ryuugazaki family has been pairing melon bread with barley tea since my grandfather's time.
Just bring him something to drink! Water Is Haru okay? How can you be so calm?! Haru! Hurry up, Rei! Oh, sorry!

I want to swim with them as a member of that team.
That's all I want.
I hope that we can also become a great team! Matsuoka seems really off today.
Did he say anything to you, Nitori? No, he never tells me anything.
But I'm sure there's nothing to worry about! I'm sure he went through much tougher experiences while he was abroad.
Matsuoka didn't join the swim team when he first transferred here from Australia.
Do you know why? No.
Did something happen? Well, the past doesn't matter.
It's performance that counts here.
The fastest swimmer wins.
It's that simple.
Gou! I'll give you a hand.
Thanks! Oh, some of my friends want to go cheer at regionals! Huh? Why are they suddenly so interested? Because you made it past prefecturals! That's amazing! A brand new swim club in regionals! Okay, boys! Get pumped! Rei, come on.
Let's practice our exchange.
Yes! All right! Keep it going! Okay, I've taught you everything I can! Iwatobi Swim Club Fire it up!! Persevere All that's left is for you to perform your best! Fire! That banner is really embarrassing.
That drawing Oh! It's the one Haru drew! I didn't think it'd be used for this.
Iwatobi Station Well, we'll head up there tomorrow morning.
Get plenty of rest at the hotel near the venue.
The Roman general Caesar said it best.
If we cross, we will wreak tragedy upon the world.
If we do not Oh, it's the bus.
Well We're off! Matsuoka Gou Big Brother Let's go to nationals! Big Brother Best of luck to both sides! Matsuoka Gou Matsuoka Gou Big Brother Best of luck to both sides! Let's go to nationals! Let's go to nationals! Best of luck to both sides! Big Brother Matsuoka Gou Matsuoka Gou Big Brother Best of luck to both sides! Let's go to nationals! What is it? Nothing.
Man, we're all by ourselves in this hotel.
I'm getting nervous.
Yeah Haru! Mako! Ready to go? What do you want for dinner? There's only one thing to eat before a tournament.
Traditional Meal Specials Pork cutlet bowl! I think I'll go with tenderloin cutlets.
Me too! Two tenderloin cutlets! Got it, two tenderloin cutlets.
The miso mackerel meal.
Got it, one mackerel.
Saw that coming! I'm thinking the hot pot or pork cutlet bowl with ankake sauce.
Hm, or maybe the chilled cutlet udon One hot pot, one ankake, one chilled cutlet udon.
What?! You've got it wrong! I wasn't placing an order! That was good! I had too much to eat.
Practice was crazy today! That was brutal! Hey, are those guys going to be in the tournament tomorrow? What if they end up in the lane next to us? They're probably students at a local high school.
After all, they aren't built like swimmers.
You sound like Gou.
Right! Let's check out the pool.
Only authorized personnel allowed.
No luck.
I guess it's too late.
This isn't going to happen, then.
Wait, we might be able to see the pool.
Hurry up, guys! It's not safe to run around in the dark! Wow It's big.
We'll be swimming in that tomorrow.
Yeah.
I'm getting excited! Yep! All done! What do you think? So close if not for the drawing Quiet, you! Girls, you should go home.
We'll be leaving early tomorrow morning.
Yes, we're almost done Big brother? I need to ask you something.
Haru, are you asleep? No, I'm awake.
Can't fall asleep, huh? Yeah I hope we make it to the final tomorrow.
Yeah Makoto.
I appreciate you being here for me.
Thanks.
Haru?! I'm going out for a quick run.
Wait, now?! Hey, Rei What is it? You shouldn't eat that squid He's talking in his sleep?! Haru! Nagisa? Rei was gone when I woke up, so I'm looking for him.
What about you? I'm Too nervous to sleep, right? Not exactly.
I'm feeling pretty nervous myself.
You are? What if I screw up my dive? Wouldn't I ruin it for everyone? I'm worrying about things I usually don't think about.
Because I get to swim in a relay with you guys again! And we'll be racing Rin tomorrow.
That's probably why you're nervous.
It's all thanks to you.
Huh? You're the one who came up with the idea of starting a swim club.
Yep, that's right.
I never thought I'd be swimming in a relay again.
Well, that means you should be showing more gratitude to me! Yeah.
Thanks, Nagisa.
Haru! Hey, Nagisa! I'm so happy! This is great, Haru! Stop it! Are you listening, Nagisa?! Haru! Yo.
Did you want something? I never answered your question.
That's no longer necessary.
No.
I'll give you my answer.
I won't feel like it's over until I do.
You wanted to know how I feel about Haru, right? It's true that I was fixated on racing him.
But it's not Haru's fault that I wanted to quit swimming.
I was pretty shocked when I lost to him.
But that wasn't what did it.
After moving to Australia, I trained every day and participated in tournaments.
But I couldn't swim the way I wanted to.
The Olympics were completely out of reach.
I felt more and more like I was being left behind.
I could only wonder.
Why was I struggling so much? Why? Oh It was because I swam in a relay.
I ruined myself.
That was the conclusion I arrived at.
After returning to Japan, I didn't let any of them know.
I didn't talk to any of them.
But when I swam with Haru that night, I had a breakthrough.
I wanted to swim again.
When I watched you guys swim at prefecturals, it reminded me of our relay.
Rin, you Your name's Ryuugazaki? I'm going to swim in Samezuka's relay.
I'm going to show you how good I can be.
So do the best you can with Haru and your other teammates.
But that also means that you can't embarrass your team.
That's all I have to say.
Sorry to make you come out here.

Did something happen? No, nothing happened.
Oh, that's right.
The captain was looking for you.
He probably wants to talk about the relay tomorrow.

You're focused on something else.
I'm sending our best members out there.
That's what a team should do.
You're not at your best condition right now.
You can't Haru, do you remember the first time we ran into Rin at a tournament? Yeah, we've come a long way since then.
Hey, why are you guys reminiscing? That's right.
We still have a long way to go.
Next time: "Distant Free!" Distant Free ! Hey, Haru.
What did you see that day?
