Amanchu (manga) - Chapter 11 - 01
The Diving Club hold an meeting at a classroom in Yumegaoka High School during Golden Week to decide what activities the Diving Club should do over the summer vacation. Futaba Ooki, Hikari Kohinata and Ai Ninomiya wait for Ai's brother Makoto Ninomiya to arrive with their lunch from the convenience store. Futaba realises that she doesn't yet know Makoto and Ai's real names, so they introduce themselves - Ai Ninomiya, the older sister nicknamed "Ane-chan" (姉ちゃん older sister) who is the President of the Diving Club, and Makoto Ninomiya, the younger brother nicknamed "Otōto-kun" (弟くん younger brother). The siblings are twins and second years at the high school - Hikari and Futaba's seniors. They were concerned that the group would die out after the previous year's graduates left, so are thankful that Futaba and Hikari have decided to join.

Amanchu (manga) - Chapter 11 - 02
The group share out the food and begin eating while starting their meeting. They group agrees that the priority for now is to help support Futaba because she is a beginner, and plan to do more general fitness training and pool diving. Futaba apologises for causing the group trouble, but they dismiss it - helping a beginner is good revision for qualified divers. Ai explains that Futaba's first goal will be earning her Open Diving license.

Amanchu (manga) - Chapter 11 - 03
Ai writes up a schedule of activities on the classroom blackboard, which Hikari then embellishes with a drawing of moray eel. Ai draws a more anatomically correct moray, which starts a drawing competition between the two girls, drawing different ocean creatures all over the board. Makoto and Futaba both join in the drawing until the board is covered in a giant diving themed mural. The group are all reluctant to erase the board after they've finished, but Futaba suggests that they all take a photo of the board with their phone cameras so they can all save the memory. The group then works together to erase the board.
