Haruka Nanase

Haruka Nanase | the main protagonist of Free

Haruka Nanase is the main protagonist of the anime series Free! and its sequels, Free! – Iwatobi Swim Club and Free! – Eternal Summer. He was a member of the Iwatobi High School Swimming Club where he competed in freestyle and breaststroke events until he graduated from high school in March 2017. Haruka eventually became a police officer like his father, Yuu Nanase, and left his hometown of Iwatobi to live in Kyoto. His best friends throughout high school were Makoto Tachibana, Nagisa Hazuki, and Rin Matsuoka.

Who is Haruka in love with?

Haruka Nanase is in love with Rin Matsuoka. Haruka first fell in love with Rin when she was in elementary school and rescued her from drowning in a river. Since then, Haruka has had feelings for Rin. When they met again at Sōbu High School, they became very close friends. At some point during their high school years, Rin confessed to Haruka that she loved her too but said that it wasn’t good because they were both girls.

This caused them to drift apart as Haruka Nanase thought that if Rin didn’t return her feelings, there was no reason to be friends anymore. After graduating high school, they went their separate ways and it wasn’t until five years later when they reunited as swimmers on Samezuka Academy’s swim team where their relationship began anew.

The two have been together ever since but have yet to confess their love for each other or take things further than just being best friends. It’s implied that neither is ready to admit their feelings because of what happened before so both remain silent about how they feel towards each other. In episode 9 of season 2, Haruka finally decides to tell Rin how she feels but stops herself after seeing Miyuki get hurt by Nagisa. In episode 10, Haruka Nanase realizes that all three of them care deeply for one another and tries to let go of her feelings for Rin by focusing more on Miyuki.

She eventually succeeds and tells Miyuki that he can become better friends with Rin instead. In episode 11, after learning about Rin’s past from Nitori, Haruka realizes that she should’ve told Rin how she felt back when they were still in high school and runs off to find her immediately only to discover that she left without saying goodbye first.

Are Makoto and Haruka dating?

One of my favorite relationships in Free is between Gin Ichimaru and Makoto. Although they live together and are always shown together, they don’t always talk to each other; it’s as if neither knows what to say. There’s a sense that there’s so much more to their relationship than just roommates but that neither is willing or able to push further. It makes for an interesting dynamic in a show where every couple kisses at some point or another. So here’s my question: Are Mankato and Hanuka dating? I have my own theory about why it doesn’t look like it (i.e., because she’s preoccupied with swimming), but I’d love to hear from others about your opinion!

Who is Haruka Nanase boyfriend?

Haruka Nanase is a high school student at Iwatobi High School. She is part of Team Iwatobi and one of our protagonists. Her best friends are Makoto Tachibana and Rin Matsuoka. Her coach is Gou Tanaka. Her father was an Olympic medalist freestyle swimmer who died in an accident during training when she was young and her mother remarried soon after to become a wife and mother. She becomes close with Rin’s father, Ryuu Matsuoka as he too lost his beloved son, but then Ryuu suffers a heart attack while swimming together with Haruka due to his weak heart condition so they stop their activities together but remain close friends.

Haruka has blue eyes and long dark brown hair that reaches her waist which she keeps tied up in two low ponytails on either side of her head. She wears a silver chain around her neck that holds a small diamond-shaped pendant (her mother’s wedding ring) which was given to her by Rin before he left for Australia. Like most characters in Free!, she wears a free-cut racing suit, which consists of a navy blue tank top and black shorts with white stripes down each side. When not wearing her swimming gear, she usually wears a light yellow sweater over a white shirt and red plaid skirt.

In episode 4 of season 2, she is seen wearing glasses when studying for exams. How old is Haruka Nanase? : 16 years old. What relationship does Haruka have with Rin Matsuoka? : At first, they were just childhood friends who grew up together in elementary school and middle school but didn’t get along well because Rin always teased her about being slow or clumsy whenever they played together since he was faster than her and could easily outrun her.
