Cut 230. “That book contained the Clow Cards,” Kero-chan explains. “They were created by a powerful sorcerer named Clow Reed.” During the explanation, we see Clow’s magical circle, then a smaller cloaked and hooded figure with his arms outspread, who seems to be calling a long line of cards down from the heavens to circle around him. Floating in the middle of a cluster of mystic mists, a small image of the Clow Book appears. This genga shows this uncanny figure, presumably Clow Reed in action, much more clearly than we can see him in the final production image.

The scene is preceded by a brief interval in which we see the Cards floating up into the air, turning as they go. In the thumbnail you can see one of the sketches that work this part out, explaining to the douga artist that even though the Cards won’t be drawn in exact detail, their design should still change as they turn around.
