Well this took a bit to find again.
Anyway, the teacher's operation is a success! She's not out of the woods yet, as with all operations there's risk of post-op infection, which is a REAL danger as the hut isn't exactly a sterile operating enviroment... Still it's one big load off everyone's shoulders.
Nishikori, despite being tied up and all, has one more card to play it seems. Looks like the guy has some knowledge of navigation, and his revelation really shakes the kids up: they might not be close to Okinawa at all. In fact they seem to be closer to Guam, and what's worse, they're smack drab in the middle of the ocean FARTHER than they expected. The gist is, even if they successfully build a boat, and manage to get past the sea monsters around the island, it's still around 1500 km worth of ocean to cross. Talk about certain death.
So Nishikori sticks around, as apparently he held out on one important detail. He figures that he could find a way to come up on top again, and will just bide his time until he gets the chance to do so. A bastard through and through.
Also, someone notices that one of the drawings on Mina's sketchbook... is almost an EXACT copy of the drawings picked up at the lighthouse, down to the spacing of the bindings. Kanako stays quiet about what she knows about what's written on the headstone though. Curioser and curioser.
There's a bit of service in this chapter (the girls taking a bath), and they discuss what happens if they CAN'T make it out of the island... Yes, it involves babymaking, and who gets dibs on which guy. Akira OBVIOUSLY is the top choice for breeding partner, heh. Had to laugh when Kanako dismisses everyone else off-hand because she "knows" that Akira is already entranced by her boobs.
