Synopsis of Part 2 (translated from Japanese):
After his first world competition, Haruka was crushed by Albert’s swimming, the “Odin of the Swim World,” and thus loosing his freedom. He was asked “Why do you swim?” questioning his relation and his place with the water and the swimming world. Struggling to find the answer, Haruka sinks into darkness on his own.
Driven by a distressing need, Haruka chooses a difficult special training, entirely devoting himself to practice. He knows that he is overworking his mind and body. His friends have to believe in him and have no choice but to watch over him.
Albert’s heartless and cold comes back to his mind. “I have to be faster, I have to be stronger.” He has to face Albert again. The final stroke cuts through the heavy and cold water. Friends stick together. What scenery Haruka’s swimming made you see?
