Scene 3, cut 20. After the long shot, we’re back at the same anonymous city sidewalk, with the bank of pedestrians walking left and right impassively. Except now Maron visualizes herself in her Jeanne persona, in full regalia, facing an unmasked Sinbad, who’s grabbed her by her wrist and is pulling her toward him.

And so begins one of the most dramatic cuts in KKJ, in which he draws her into his arms and gives her a passionate kiss. In the actual broadcast, you can’t see this cut clearly, since the bank of pedestrians continues to run in front of the two (as you can see in the screen caps). Perhaps this was to emphasize the meaninglessness of the kiss, as it leaves Maron still isolated in a world without true affection.

Or perhaps the kiss was thought to be . . . well . . . just a little too passionate for a Japanese audience, who would consider such an act too intimate to perform in public view. And so the bank may provide a discreet screen behind which the kiss can be consummated.

In any case, I didn’t get the sketches for the bank (you can see a copy layout for the top layer in the first thumb, and a copy layout for this image in the second), so I have no choice but to display the act in all of its transgressive glory.
