This still remains to be one of my favourite official pics of Makoto and Rin.
Well first of all, it’s cute as frickety frick.
Rin is happy RinRin and Makoto is adorable as ever, laughing into his hand and everything. And if happy, smiling Rin isn’t the cutest thing, then I don’t know what is. But what I love most is that they’re sharing a laugh. Just them two.
I know that there is so much emphasis on the rinharu and makoharu friendships, but dammit! Rin and Makoto were also friends! It was Rin that first found out about Makoto’s fear of water, and it was Makoto who first verbally confirms their friendship.
Sure the tension is between Rin and Haru, but as RinRin so wisely put it, the relay? them swimming together? it was for the team. This includes Nagisa and Makoto.
I can’t even properly express how much I love this picture. I could stare at it for hours and I’d still be smiling from all the heartwarming feels.
I ship Makorin so hard. Platonic brotp or otp. I’m happy either way.
