Sweet, that matches up with my guesses! :P I didn’t even try those last three characters yet. I’m not sure about Gou using Fe…she comes off as Te to me though I could be wrong.
is it ok if i just talk about sousuke and nitori for a hot minute though
in episode 8
in episode 9
are we all getting this? i don’t know exactly how long it was between episode 8 and 9, but it couldn’t have been more than two or three weeks., right? in the space of two of three weeks, nitori went from being one of the slowest swimmers on the team to holding the current breaststroke record in the cohort. that is incredible, and it tells us two things:
- nitori is actually a damn good swimmer
- sousuke is actually a damn good coach
like, not only did nitori have both the potential to be an incredible breaststroke swimmer all along and the dedication and perseverance to fulfill that potential, but sousuke saw that and was able to bring it out in him?? I mean, nitori’s been fiercely throwing himself into training, always staying back late, since before the prefecturals, and yet by the start of episode 8 still had not really made any significant improvement. in walks sousuke, and in the space of weeks he’s gotten exponentially better.
breaststroke is not even sousuke’s specialty, and it’s not as if he and nitori are alike in temperament—which means sousuke was able to find a tutoring style and develop a basic training regimen that worked well for nitori specifically. and nitori, with a little guidance, quickly became a swimmer to be reckoned with. the power was in him all along
my point is that nitori is great and sousuke is an angel, that is the thesis of this post
