Here is the fully elaborated rough sketch, with the hair highlights and shadows fully developed. Interestingly, the animation supervisor made Hikaru’s eyes even bigger and wider than the white rough.

This sketch is noticably more rumpled than the others in this set and looks to have been one of the most heavily used. My guess is that it was considered one of the most crucial images in this cut, and so it was passed around the studio quite a bit while this scene was being developed, for comment and inspiration.

An amazing image, one of my all-time favorite gengas, but ... activate that collector's Eagle Vision, and, with the "two identical A1 cels" issue in your mind, look verrrrry closely at Hikaru's lower eyelashes and that lock of hair that dangles down low between her eyes.

Then move right on to the next item ...
