#I had a lotta fun writing that
#it's based of The Other Guys btw
OK SO the other day i was in forensics class and thought the four would make a wicked crime scene investigation team???? i drew them in cop hats on my notes anyway
- lavi would be the detective right he has a brain like sherlock but is a total ditz and does rlly dumb stuff like walk straight into a puddle of blood and slide across the crime scene until he runs into first responding officer kanda
- who would promptly kick him off the scene and he’d have to go sit in the back of the squad car
- lenalee would be the police chief???? lenalee would be the police chief
- lenalee w/ handcuffs (thank u aniké)
- idk if u caught that but kanda in a police officer get up
- allen would be a rad cop too except he’d probably get himself in more trouble than anything else and be that guy who does all the illegal stuff in the name of justice
- allen would also make a good firefighter. but then again so would lavi damn
- i would pay to see a kanda/allen good cop bad cop routine
- the donut shop down the street has a framed pic of allen
- they keep having to hire new crime scene photographers because for SOME reason the film is only pics of either lenalee or kanda and none of the evidence is actually photographed… hm….
- one time allen had to do the rough sketch of the scene because the artist was sick and it was just stick figures w/ sad faces. and circular trees
- lavi never really cared about the business before and thought it was fun to solve the crimes like puzzles and then o boy he saw police chief lenalee and now he works day and night because he cares so much
- this was not going down the lavi/lena route but that sounds rlly nice :u
- pls talk to me about this
- i have so many more
weeeelll, I don’t have good cop bad cop for you but
have some Kanda/Allen bad cop badder cop

I would just like to point out that this..
Is not Haru’s bed.
So… whose is it?
Under different lighting it could be Samezuka bedding :3
goes to samezuka to talk to sousuke, sousuke leaves him alone in their room for a moment, haru catches a few quick winks on the nearest bed which happens to be the bottom bunk 8D
if this happens for real, I’m going to laugh into the next century.

#worst fandom ever ugh
#shit MakoHarus say
trioditis said: I've just read the newest chapter of Michiru Heya online on mangafox. I noticed something weird on the credits page. There's "horrible scanlations" instead of "september scanlations" and something like "fencer is a bitch". First i thought that you did it on purpose but I also downloaded this chapter from your site and credits page looks the same as always. I think you should know about it. (sorry for my english, i'm not native)
I’m…not sure where they were going with this.
This “stupid hoe” and “homophobe” (?????) stood in line for a fucking hour in sweltering heat, paid for this out of her own pocket, and translated and typeset this thing for everyone to enjoy…for free…
And people think this is somehow okay?
Being in Japan, I can’t fix this kind of thing because mangafox is blocked here (and I think in the US too), so if anyone can replace this ridiculous demonstration of childishness, I’d appreciate it. This is just…beyond reprehensible. I’d rather they removed the credits page altogether.
Congratulations, MakoHarus. All you’ve accomplished is embarassing yourselves and your fandom. :)

#I refuse to call this anything but a coil
We’re all waiting for the Apple iWatch to come out, and there have been very weird rumor pictures of how it might look, though this is my favorite.
Is it going to come out? YES. How do we know? We have more than enough perfect proof that starts months ago:
1) A few months ago, Nike laid off it’s whole group that worked on Nike Fuelband. The product was discontinued, just like that. But Nike had a reason behind it. They’re known to be close partners with Apple. And if Nike quit Fuelband, it means that something else will come up, a partnership between Nike and Apple that will drown Fuelband, and take over. That’s iWatch. That’s the only logical reason that Fuelband was discontinued.
2) Then, a very recent news arrived. Apple just hired a senior executive from Swiss luxury watch brand Tag Heuer, which could be (obviously) to help it with the launch of its iWatch expected this autumn. Tag Heuer, part of luxury goods group LVMH, said on Friday its vice president for sales, Patrick Pruniaux, who had been with the brand for seven years, was leaving on Monday to join Apple. Of course, why would Apple hire a swiss luxury watch salesmen? iWatch.
does this mean Coils are a thing now :U

#oh my god
My little sister’s reactions to episode 6 are here! Oh gosh, she loved this episode because there were a lot of cute moments… and some pretty hilarious moments, all of which she equally fangirled over in her own way. c: Pretty sure she found the dolphin part particularly touching though. She actually went “aww” for a straight minute afterward, precious darling.
She’s really looking forward to the next episode though! As much as drama can suck… it’s still hard to look away from. WHOOPS. I’LL AT LEAST BE SURE TO MAKE SOME POPCORN.
Check out her other adorable reactions here!

#I have no words
#if this is a troll job it's the best one I've seen
#warning: Rin bashing
#shit MakoRin fans say
Just to be clear: Rin is a jerk and people should stop defending his behaviour
This is going to remain untagged, although I do realise it’ll turn up on Tumblr search, which is unfortunate because this is mostly just for my followers. It’s just that after reblogging this with the comment that I did, I thought I should make something clear. I do NOT approve of Rin’s random burst of violence against Sosuke at all! Me jumping on the Sourin train is more a response to Sosuke’s feelings then anything else. Because Rin is a jerk for the way he is always resorting to violence and it’s about time his defence squad stopped making excuses for him because at this point, he doesn’t have a lot of excuses!
I mean, in Season 1 the Matsuoka Rin defence squad made excuse after excuse for Rin’s violence. Slamming Haru against a chain link fence, “Haru provoked it by being cold”. Not to mention there was this anonymous comment I got in response to calling out the hypocrisy of the people who bend over backwards for Rin getting upset at Sosuke attempts at intimidating Haru, which is also wrong but far less violent then half the things Rin pulls. That particular anon’s excuse was that “well Rin and Haru are friends so I am sure Haru will understand”. Yes, Haru did understand but all that means is that Rin’s friends are basically enabling him and letting him get away with shit he shouldn’t be getting away with!
I mean, look at Sosuke’s face! He is fully expecting Rin to punch him and not even trying to get away or defend himself. He’s not shocked or surprised by Rin’s level of violence. It’s almost as if he knows Rin can’t control himself, which makes me wonder how many times Rin just beat-up on Sosuke when they were young and knowing Rin, broke down in tears straight after. But that’s not really the point.
The point is that at what point do you stop giving Rin a pass for his violent outbursts. Episode 12 with Nitori? And let’s be clear here, he did swing FOR Nitori, Nitori just reacted fast enough to step back and so Rin didn’t make contact and hit the glass. “Oh he was upset because he had just bombed his race and Nitori wouldn’t leave him alone…” then later with Haru, “He was depressed! Not just from the race but he had been suffering from depression for years!”
Yes depression is a disease and Rin was depressed in season 1 and so despite the fact that you being depressed is not much of a defence for you assaulting someone else, we can… I don’t know, give Rin a pass. But what’s is Rin’s excuse now!? As far as we know he is not depressed in season 2. This is supposed to be the real Rin that team Iwatobi shot themselves in the foot to save and he’s still a violent jerk! At some point we just have to accept that and also accept that any relationship with Rin, whether a romantic ship or a bro ship or just good old friendship, is going to have a unhealthy violent edge to it.
However this is not really just a matter of “shipping”. This is a serious character flaw that Rin has and as much as I like Rin, I can see this flaw bring about his ultimate downfall. I mean, I speculated that Rin might not make it but it seems that Rin is getting scouting calls. I imagine that he will have to keep performing well in the Regional and maybe the National tournament to “seal the deals” so to speak but at this point in time it looks like he will get into a good swim team after graduating from High School. But it doesn’t change the fact that the real life swimmer Rin reminds me off the most is Nick D’Arcy and not because they both swim the butterfly stroke.
If you are not Australian and into swimming then you probably haven’t heard about Nick D’Arcy. But back in 2008 he was removed from Australia’s Olympic swimming squad because, and I quote, “charged with assault after a brawl with former Commonwealth Games triple gold medalist Simon Cowley" although "brawl" gives the wrong impression because from what I gathered, Cowley never retaliated and certainly didn’t start anything. Well D’Arcy has now retired, having never won an Olympic medal when he was fully capable of it. His temper sunk his swimming career and extrapolating from what we have seen so far, that may well be how Rin’s dreams go down in flames as well!
PS. The reason I remain an avid MakoRin shipper is because so far Makoto is the only person Rin hasn’t taken a swing at and is also the only person who, to date, could tell Rin stuff he didn’t want to hear and actually have Rin listen. It could just be that Makoto is too gentle for even Rin to get angry at or because Makoto, unlike Haru, Sosuke and Nitori, would probably NOT let Rin get away with random acts of violence. I may just be blinded by my love for Makoto but Makoto just strikes me as someone who you don’t pull crap like this with no matter how much of a gentle giant he comes across as.
What show are you even watching?
I guess Rin is shippable with Nagisa, Momo, and that Uocchi guy too. Ooh, why don’t we ship him with Kisumi, too! In fact, let’s ship him with every person he hasn’t punched! Oh wait, that’s everyone!
"Makoto is the only person Rin hasn’t taken a swing at and is also the only person who, to date, could tell Rin stuff he didn’t want to hear and actually have Rin listen"
THat’S GONNA TO KEEP ME LAughING FOR 30 YEARS
You should probably keep off the Ambien. And you know. Actually watch the show without being high as balls.
And that’s right, he was aiming at Nitori, because Nitori looked so much like the window! He missed because Nitori has amazing dodging skills! Rin obviously has poor depth perception and didn’t estimate that his swing and arm length wasn’t long enough to hit Nitori, so he didn’t lunge forward more! HAHAAHAHAHAHAA
Ooh, or maybe Rin thought his arms would stretch like Nagisa’s appear to underwater! Yes, he was definitely aiming for Nitori!
Thanks for the great laugh. This is gold.
I’m gonna keep this up here later to laugh at, and show people an example of how fans like you are. :)

Debunking the new interview quote
Here’s the quote going around:
“Exactly. [Makoto] begins to embrace the realization that he has to give up, that there’s no place for him to fit in between [Haruka and Rin].”
Firstly, I call bullshit. Why? Cause it’s a Fencer translation and she’s notorious for makoharu hate, causing ship wars and generally giving darker interpretations/translations to certain Japanese texts
read: anything to do with rinharu vs. makoharu
Here’s an alternate translation to that quote, provided by people I will not mention in case fans decide to go rabid on her:
"When it comes to swimming, Makoto falls behind Haru and Rin, and he can’t enter their rivalry or become a rival."
Now, let’s look into why this is likely a more accurate translation.
Firstly, it’s not by fencer.
Kyoani does not legitimately acknowledge any homosexual ships therefore the obviously romantic undertones in the former quote would be ridiculous coming from them.
Regardless of the director’s bias towards certain characters
KyoAni is first and formost a business.
Makoharu is the most popular yaoi couple in the Japanese fandom with Makoharu and Makoto merch selling out the fastest. The cover for the interview was Makoharu. I really don’t think they’re gonna risk losing fans by denouncing Makoto/Makoharu just like that.
I call bullshit on the “Makoto can’t compete with Haru and Rin” bit because
- Makoto repeatedly beat Rin in hs!1 in the butterfly 200m races because of the power and stamina in his strokes.
- Makoto mostly lost to Haru cause of his shitty pacing and even then lost by a close margin, that too in a stroke he wasn’t experienced in, all while beating the rest of the regular freestyle front crawl swimmers.
- Utsumi has the hugest boner for Rin so ofc he’s “gonna be the only one that can beat Haru”.
So, regardless of the feelings Makoto’s swimming might incite in Haru, he can most definitely compete against Rin and Haru, don’t even give me that shit.
Anyone got anything else to add, go ahead.
You do realise that those two quotes are not the same? What your “anonymous source” translated is not the same line as the translation by fencer-x you’ve quoted.
You can find both here and here. If you’re going to provide an alternate translation or ask someone for a second opinion, at least get your source material right.
Let me also take this time to remind you that numerous people have called fencer-x's translations into question before or accused her of being biased, and none of those times were founded. There has never been any proof to support that idea, so sit the fuck down. Please.
I’m not even going to bother arguing with the rest of this post. Clearly you think you know better than the main screenwriter for the show, despite it being rather heavily hinted that Makoto did not advance to Regionals in the Freestyle 200M. Meaning that, seeing as this is their last summer swimming together, Makoto will very likely not get another chance to compete with Rin or Haruka.
It’s really rather simple. If he didn’t make it, he can no longer compete with them.
Alright, then. I personally don’t trust fencer’s translations and I think you’ll do me the justice of having my preference in translators.
Once a full translation of the interview comes out, I’ll look them all over and take in the different interpretations and if they coincide with fencer’s translation, then I’ll publically as well as privately apologise. Until then, my opinions stand.
Also, I meant Makoto would be able to compete with them in general, not in regards to the first attempt Makoto’s made at a freestyle race, thank you.
This is not a matter of preference.
Have you ever heard of “innocent until proven guilty”? I did tell you, you are not the first to question fencer-x's translations - plenty of people have tried and failed, and yet nothing has ever come off it. Because, while she may choose not to translate material she has no interest in, what she does translate is done so with great care and skill. (Especially now she's aware that people will nitpick her translations, for crying out loud.)
In the meanwhile misguided people are reblogging from you, and I’m telling you now, your public apology? Will be largely ignored. Corrections are never reblogged as often as the original. So, why don’t you take it down now and put it back up again later in the extremely unlikely event that it it turns out you were right?
Oh, and unless you are actually capable of speaking Japanese yourself - how are you going to judge which translation is the most reliable? In fact, why don’t you leave the calling out to people whose opinion actually matters: like other known & respected translators.

Anonymous said: Yanny I'm really upset about that quote going arounf that fencer translated. I know we can't trust her with anything and that she's a bully but it still upsets me. Free! used to bring me so much happiness, especially all the sweet Makoharu but now it's just making me not want to watch it any more because of what the creators are doing.
Anon, let me show you another translation of THAT line…
"when it comes to swimming, makoto falls behind haru and rin, and he can’t enter their rivalry or become a rival"
now tell me how YOU interpret this…
(Source: a friend’s friend )
Oh, you mean the translation of this line?
“From Makoto’s point of view, with swimming, he’s just not as good as Haruka or Rin, he’ll never be able to be a part of their rivalry, he’ll never be able to be their rival.”
I’m so glad we’re friends :D
