Cuts 22, 24. In this cut, which occurs not long after, Misao is helping wheel the school lunch through the hall to the cafeteria. It's curry and rice, a special favorite, and she's wearing an apron and a domestic's cap to keep hair out of it. In the process, she runs into Monta, the boy on whom she's had a crush (and whose apparent preference for Sasami nearly made her turn to the Dark Side as a witch).

Monta at first doesn't recognize her: the cap conceals her “signature” hair bow and with her hair cut she looks quite different. Monta comments on this makeover, saying, "I like it better that way," and Misao blushes, smiles shyly, and takes off the cap.

Above is the A2 genga (the similar A1, not imaged, shows her entering the frame from the left). It begins a remarkably well drawn and pretty set of portraits. The eyes are particularly impressive. Give them a close look: six levels of highlight and shadow in the pupil alone, with two more in the crescent of white alongside. These are among the most detailed eye designs I’ve seen in anime; yet in the screen caps I’ve seen for this character, they don’t seem overdone when colorized. The thumb takes you to the much simpler layout, which shows you something of the setting, which shows the windowed corridor she's taking the lunch down.
