No but really I’ve always pegged Haru as a bit possessive, especially since that one horoscope interview came out. He doesn’t share well when it comes to Makoto, and this episode really drove it home. A funny thing is that flash of Kisumi feeding Haru - clearly he’s capable of interacting with Kisumi in a non-jealous way…but you’ll notice Makoto’s nowhere in that shot. Once Makoto is close by? Haru pulls out the ¬_¬ face.
And this is the basically the only time we see him pull this kind of behavior - when someone wiggles close to Makoto. he acted much the same when Rin first showed up - he clashed with Rin from the start, but there was definitely more annoyance when Rin changed gears and aimed for Makoto instead.
Haru isn’t used to sharing Makoto. In fact, it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that his closeness to Makoto is one of the few things Haru doesn’t want to share at all - he’s shown to be a pretty good big brother-type and very supportive when it comes to people he cares about, giving away his time and possessions freely, but for some reason he gets defensive over his time with Makoto. Even when it comes to people he could consider his friends - you’ll notice that the main reason Haru seems annoyed with Kisumi is not because he dislikes him as a person, but because he dared to interfere with Haru’s precious bond with Makoto. And Haru held that grudge for around five years now….and still does, as obvious by this episode.
And I think it’s wonderful. Yes keep blowing those “Haru doesn’t care about their relationship as much as Makoto!!!” misconceptions away, jealous!Haru. You are beautiful.
