And here’s a cel from this cut, an inbetweener just after the A1 key, but showing what the animation supervisor was trying to get. Yuusuke in fact looks as if he were considering taking a part-time job in a CLAMP-inspired series! Certainly those amazingly textured eyes – with creepy lavender used both for the highlights and the seemingly self-luminous depth lines – would not look out of place on the face of one of their gothic protagonists.

Is he about to transform into a Rune God or go become one of the Seven Penguins and challenge Kamui? (Mikael could help with the wings, and surely Silky has a huge sword somewhere in her lair that he could borrow.) Vapalla’s Cels has a cel of Yuusuke having another late-night reverie, which shows the same amazing approach to his eyes.

Notice, also, the way in which the lines around his face and in the background have been heavily reinforced, giving the whole composition a jagged, almost cubist “kick.” And every single inch of this cel has been painted below the registration holes, all the way to the corners. Yuusuke cels are not very avidly collected, which is a shame, as the studio put some of their finest art work into this “every-adolescent” figure.
