Umishi chapter 84

Rintarou takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'. Meanwhile Maaya continues to annoy me and waste precious pages. I think the whole point of her existence is to make Hiro seem preferable in comparison. It's definitely working.

Also did a bit of research (i.e. read Wikipedia) about waves, as it seems they're right about the factors that bring about huge waves:
  • Wind speed (they're in a typhoon)
  • Distance of open water that the wind has blown over, called the fetch
  • Width of area affected by fetch
  • Time duration the wind has blown over a given area (wind's been blowing for a while)
  • Water depth (they're at a deep spot)
