Flying Sweat Waves

In manga and anime, sometimes sweat drops are drawn shooting away from a character's head in waves.

In comics, these sweat drops would be called plewds, and would mean the character is tense or anxious, among other things. However, while normally only a few plewds are drawn, sometimes waves of plewds are drawn instead, forming multiple layers flowing away.
