OK but look how young Haru looks here. Children under 20 can only have passports good for 5 years, so given that Haru is 18 now (it’s mid-August, and his birthday is at the end of June, and he’s a graduating senior—so 18) he is at least 13 in that picture.
That means he got it on or after July after Rin left.
Now why on earth would 13-year-old Haru need a passport? (his father lived elsewhere at the time for business—but still in Japan AFAIK—and he still lived with his mother at the time)
New headcanon: he either got it the summer after Rin left, out of a spur-of-the-moment desire to fly to Australia to see Rin (or “just in case”), maybe after experiencing that great relay with his new teammates/Sousuke and wanting to share it with Rin/see how Rin was doing—
He got it after their falling out, another spur-of-the-moment thing where he felt like he ought to go after Rin, to make sure he wasn’t serious, wasn’t really going to quit swimming.
And then eventually chickened out/couldn’t get his parents to agree to it.
probably gonna watch episode 12 again…and again…and maybe again.
Meet Russell and Lori, Rin’s homestay parents & Haruka expertsHaru: How do they know that? Rin: Uh, well...

That awkward moment :P
Usually, I sketch with mechanical pencil with 0.5 or 0.35 leads, now I used different pencil, that’s why the lines are thick, but for me they also seem to be softer, especially shading :’D
Btw I still didn’t draw my redraw challenge, I hope I will be able to make it before final episode!
