"Ah," she says in a tragic whisper, "if only I could have played the Prince!" And Meilin becomes so frustrated at not being part of the kiss scene, either as kisser or kissee, that she actually begins chewing on her costume! Shown above is the B3 key, with sakkan Kimizuka's rough genga in the first thumbnail.

The face is a virtual catalogue of Japanese emotional markers: teardrops, temple throb, blush, blue fear lines. At such a moment Meilin knows that she needs to show everything she feels.



Click the second thumb for the B5 key (the B4, not imaged, is an eyeblink), where poor Meilin seems to pulling out stitches with her teeth left and right.

Go easy, Meilin! The Daidouji Costume Rental is going to charge you a damage/cleaning fee if you don't watch out! This is a wonderful comic moment, one that, in a Shakespearean way undercuts the seriousness of the primal scene that's about to occur onstage, leading to what is in many ways the pivotal moment in the series.
