So the thing about some jellyfish is that they aren't really a single organism. They're an entire colony of tiny little cells, all functioning together in harmony to produce what appears to be one large animal. It was a beautiful metaphor for how working together individuals can overcome problems and also an extremely painful science lesson for Masato.

“OH MY GOD BRO IT HURTS”
Even while running Masato continued to fruitlessly paw at his face. The tentacles had been shredded, but their painful toxin still remained on his skin. “THIS IS NOT MY HAPPY PLACE!”

All around them sirens blared. Something about 'loss of pressure' and 'hull breach' and 'imminent life support failure'. Didn't sound terribly important. Masato managed to scream some semi-intelligent blurbs in between the pained cries. “YO, LET'S GO GRAB OURSELF AN ESCAPE THING.” He turned and blundered into the big storeroom that Hajime's buddy had been talking about before getting tentacled to the face. The area was large (for being inside a submersible) and all along the walls were rows of what seemed like empty cylindrical slots, as though there had been oversized batteries there at one point.

Some helpful signage pointed out that those empty spots were 'escape pods'. After a second of clever deduction Masato came to a conclusion.

“OH NO. THERE AREN'T ANY LEFT!”

As if on queue, the glasses wearing buddy Hajime had rescued from a locker came scampering up behind them. “There are emergency pods in the engine room! We can go there!”

“HOLY CRAP HOW ARE YOU ALIVE OW OW JEEZ WHATEVER HAJIME LETS GO”
After an even shorter sprint Masato nearly pulled the bulkhead to the engine off with his strength. The entire area below was bathed in a dark red light and massive amounts of steam rose up from the depths, severely reducing visibility.

Even through the pain the chuunin was having quite a bit of run with all the rushing around. “LAST ONE THERE IS A BUTT FACE”
