Fun in the Sun by JohnSu Fun in the Sun by JohnSu
I wanted to try my hand at making a 4-koma of manga-esque quality. Since I've been reading so many scanlations recently, you'll have to read this in the Japanese way, too: top to bottom, right to left. Very important for the last panel not to seem awkward.

Have you ever watched anime or read manga where a group of characters go to the beach or pool, and there's a scene where the girls throw water at each other and look like they're having the time of their lives? I never quite understood that. And so this piece was born.

On a side note, remember kids: hermit crabs are noble creatures of the sea worthy of our honor and respect.

When I went to the beach most of the fun of the splashing was in the chasing and strugle to catch the others/escape getting yourself splashed. Rather then just standing around continuously splashing.

Derp. I tried this with my sister when I went to the beach recently, and it totally failed. I wonder why they have so much fun...

Usually when you go to the beach a person gets a bloody nose for splashing salt water in someones eyes. Then you have to get out of the water for fear of sharks eating you....

Of course, in real life it never stays just "Tee hee, splash splash." It usually goes *Splash* "AH! You got water in my eye! I'm gonna kill you for that!" *Giant wave woosh Rwar Dunk Brawl.*

yeah.

:icondragonlaughplz: yeah, it is kinda wierd that they just splash at each other...

if I was there with the people that do that, I would be under a parasol (Aquaphobia) staring at them saying "WTH are those idiots doing?" -_-

You make a very good point sir...or are you miss? You can never tell on the internet...

I love digging up sandcrabs at the beach. My cousin, brother, and I have become experts at finding where they're hiding and compete to find both the largest and the smallest ones.

I had two hermit crabs. One got killed by the other while it was molting and i didn't seperate them cos I didn't know how to tell(i knew cos i found the shell and the carcass). And the other passed away from lack of salt. Beware.

There was actually meant to be 42, but since you chose cancer over a magical shale sprite, I thought I'd spare you the remaining 40.
