Ever since that day, every samezuka crew’s birthdays are numbered and they all live in fear of Sousuke’s revenge.
it’s ssk’s bday in america now so i’ll just take a moment to be happy for him
sousuke himself said that his dream already came true, and maybe it feels like he’s been cheated of something, as if the multicolored balloons of his childhood dreams he used to clutch in his hands were persuaded away by a stranger who offered him a broken kite instead, one that didn’t always fly. but
This 144-Year-Old Wisteria In Japan Looks Like A Pink Sky
These stunning photographs, which look like a glorious late evening sky with dashes of pink and purple, are actually pictures of Japan’s largest wisteria (or wistaria, depending on whom you ask) plant.
This plant, located in Ashikaga Flower Park in Japan, is certainly not the largest in the world, but it still comes in at an impressive 1,990 square meters (or half an acre) and dates back to around 1870 (the largest, at about 4,000 square meters, is the wisteria vine in Sierra Madre, California). Although wisterias can look like trees, they’re actually vines. Because its vines have the potential to get very heavy, this plant’s entire structure is held up on steel supports, allowing visitors to walk below its canopy and bask in the pink and purple light cast by its beautiful hanging blossoms.

- The worried looks Haru sends Makoto
- His tsundere ways of taking care of Makoto
- The subtle smiles when Makoto isn’t looking
HE LOOKS AT MAKOTO LIKE MAKOTO’S HAPPINESS IS EVERYTHING HE EVER WANTS IN THIS WORLD
- Verbally expressing his gratitude
- THE WAY HIS EYES GLOW
- AND THE WAY HIS WORLD CRUMBLES WHEN HE FINDS OUT MAKOTO IS LEAVING
HOW CAN YOU GUYS EVEN SAY THAT HARU DOESN’T APPRECIATE/CARE ABOUT MAKOTO?
ARE WE WATCHING THE SAME SHOW?
Haru is under a lot of pressure right now, and he is utterly lost. His venting out his anger on Makoto was unacceptable, but never intentional. He is, in fact, scared of hurting Makoto. (rewatch Free! ES 6)
Haru is someone who has a lot of trouble expressing himself, and shows his concern in the most subtle ways. He is also a very sensitive person, despite his cold aloof exterior. The problem isn’t that Haru doesn’t care enough, it’s that he cares too much.
Haru is the type to snap under pressure. And it’s out of anger and frustration that he acted the way he did during the fight with Makoto. Please keep in mind that he wasn’t rational then. Don’t believe the words that come out of his mouth when he’s angry, look at his eyes instead. You can practically see his world crumbling in those incredibly expressive eyes.
This doesn’t mean that Haru’s actions are excusable, but please try to look from Haru’s point of view and see how betrayed, lost and utterly alone he is feeling right now. How much do you think he would hate himself for being so cruel to Makoto, given how scared he was of hurting Makoto in episode 6?
What I’m trying to say is, please don’t judge Haru based on one scene. Are you guys really throwing 20+ episodes worth of Haru’s character development out the window for one scene in which he wasn’t even thinking rationally?
And then the magical traveling circus of scholastic would randomly show up
at the motherfucking BOOK FAIR
I seriously miss the book fair.
Wait, you mean these don’t exist anymore?
We even had them in Pakistan and they were a big hit.
Oh the good old days
Kurt Vonnegut: 16 Rules For Writing Fiction
1. Use the time of a total stranger in such a way that he or she will not feel the time was wasted.
2. Give the reader at least one character he or she can root for.
3. Every character should want something, even if it is only a glass of water.
4. Every sentence must do one of two things — reveal character or advance the action.
5. Start as close to the end as possible.
6. Be a sadist. No matter how sweet and innocent your leading characters, make awful things happen to them — in order that the reader may see what they are made of.
7. Write to please just one person. If you open a window and make love to the world, so to speak, your story will get pneumonia.
8. Give your readers as much information as possible as soon as possible. To heck with suspense. Readers should have such complete understanding of what is going on, where and why, that they could finish the story themselves, should cockroaches eat the last few pages.
9. Find a subject you care aboutand which you in your heart feel others should care about.
10. Do not ramble.
11. Keep it simple. Simplicity of language is not only reputable, but perhaps even sacred.
12. Have guts to cut. Your rule might be this: If a sentence, no matter how excellent, does not illuminate your subject in some new and useful way, scratch it out.
13. Sound like yourself. The writing style which is most natural for you is bound to echo the speech you heard when a child.
14. Say what you mean. You should avoid Picasso-style or jazz-style writing, if you have something worth saying and wish to be understood.
15. Pity the readers. Our stylistic options as writers are neither numerous nor glamorous, since our readers are bound to be such imperfect artists.
16. You choose. The most meaningful aspect of our styles, which is what we choose to write about, is utterly unlimited.

He took the time to match his shirt down to his socks down to his backpack. He’s draped in Nike and you just know he has a different color scheme for each day of the week. This level of dedication should be admired.
