Science kind of aproves this.

She is holding the bowl upside down, which is good because of gravity.
For science.

Wonder whether that is just her own lung volume she tries to re-breathe (seems like a lot unless she was able to pressurize it greatly in her lungs) or whether it had a different source!

The shipwreck is fairly deep too, assuming it's the same wreck from 'Five Minute Summer.' Have to wonder how she got it down there. Unless...
She could have gone down with an air bottle, then held up the tub and emptied the air bottle into the tub from underneath.
Though it would be easier to just leave the tub up against the ceiling and let the pressure of the air pushing upward hold it there. At that depth, that would be a hell of a workout, holding that tub over your head like that.

Um, remember the "give them the regulator" incident? (Wrong choice, bad ending.) I don't think she even would know how to use an air bottle in the first place, nor does she seem to have access to one.

(Or at least, "know how to use it as intended. She may well be able to simply grab onto it and pull it down with her, and emptying it through the "unscrew the top and it all comes out at once" method.)

Humm, for that matter there's no reason to assume it's all from the same dive. She 'did' show off by filling a rather large drinking glass with air from her lungs, and still have 3 minutes of air to go. It's well under a minute from the surface to the SS Aya/SS it's actual name. Most likely it was "swim down with empty tub, immediately fill with air from lungs, leave it against the ceiling (held there by its own bouyency), swim back up, back down, fill again, back up and repeat until full.

Seems most likely to me.

Pretty thorough analysis there. :) I meant a water bottle full of air.
The exchange rate of O2 to CO2 when you breathe is about ten percent (lose 5% oxygen and gain 5% CO2), though that's normal exhalation; it's probably much higher if you're doing anything physical which would use more oxygen; you could do it that way but it'd be easier to just haul the tub down there or use a bottle like we both suggested. Who knows, though...these girls are superhuman when it comes to breath-holding.

There's a scene like this in the first episode of Amanchu where Pikari is breathing from an upside down tub, but she's only under about five feet of water or so.

Odd looking, but hey, whatever works...

"...It's remarkable how often those two traits coincide."
