Cut 98. And so Alcyone is no more ... silently Presea and Fuu express their grief, and finally the camera turns to Umi, whom we see in this haunting full-face portrait, her eyes brimming with tears. Sequence numbers: A1 (face), B1 (eyes).



There is a sequence-mate to this cel at Arrex's Cel Tower.

Rayearth cels are always lovely, an expression of the remarkable passion Studio CLAMP brought to this project. But few are so "uncanny good" as this transfixing image, an exquisite embodiment of this powerful scene. I'd planned to put a plain wall-like background behind it, since, as you can see in the screen cap, this scene takes place inside Alcyone's room. But when I tried this glimmery piece of art paper behind it, I saw I'd found the perfect accent to the Water Knight's welling tears.

Oh, aren't the celga no kami good sometimes!
