…okay, Rei is OFFICIALLY the character that gave it ALL for the team! I had a TERRIBLE feeling that THIS was going to happen and you know, the way the writers handled it, I feel okay with it. Rei, you’re the hero of the day! You TOTALLY rock!!

…I  can only imagine what he must have been feeling through this entire episode. *hugs him* He did it for the team and for the teammates he loves so much, but even so, he made a huge sacrifice. And what’s more, when he asked Haru if there was someone he wanted to swim with, it must have stung just a little to know that it wasn’t him. …especially after the previous episode. But, in his heart, he knows he’s an irreplaceable member of the team and that’s enough for him. He knew that the group couldn’t move forward if he didn’t make this concession for them and so, he did what he had to do. Well done! <3

Rei’s the greatest friend any of these nerds could ever wish to have. He didn’t have to do anything for them but he joins the team because of Nagisa and stays because he’s inspired by Haru and the rest of them. He always feels like he’s the worst because he’s new to swimming and goes through…

Wow. WOW. Okay, wow. Rei did not get to swim with the team.

Honestly, I really think it was mature and sweet of him to offer Rin the chance to swim with the boys, but oh my god that’s so irritating. Like, Rei worked so hard, at a sport he had zero experience in. He quit pole vaulting, and head…

frickin frick like ouch Haru.

He didn’t say that he wanted to swim with everyone or with his team he said specifically Rin over Rei and Rei knew what he should do to make his friend happy and yeah he said he was alright with that but you can see that’s he’s hurt, at least a little bit.

WHAT HURTS ME MOST WAS THE FACT THAT IT WAS REI WHO FACILITATED THE RECONCILIATION BETWEEN RIN AND THE GUYS

REI, WHO FELT LIKE AN OUTCAST
REI, WHO DIDN’T WANT TO BE MERELY RIN’S REPLACEMENT
REI, WHO STILL IN SO MUCH DOUBT ABOUT HIS OWN ABILITIES AND WAS PROBABLY IN WORRY ABOUT BEING THROWN OUT OF THE CLUB

REI.

FUCKING. RYUUGAZAKI. REI.

I MEAN

THERE WAS PROBABLY ONE MOMENT WHERE HE PUT THE TEAM’S AND RIN’S HAPPINESS BEFORE HIS OWN UNCERTAINTY


REI. BLESS YOU REI. BLESS YOU.

But so is Rei.

He was willing to step aside if it meant mending their friendship, and instead of acting hurt or jealous, which would've been completely acceptable, he's proud of them, and happy for them. Because he understands Rin, and all of them better than anyone else, he was able to watch them win, without him, and still smile sincerely all the while. If you ask me, Rei really is the most beautiful of them all.
