Cut 79. This fierce image shows the impact of the kick, which makes poor Touya cover his face with his hands and sprout a giant sweatdrop, while Sakura, her arms straight out beside her, stands raging at him. This part is funny and effective, but I’m most bemused by the Yukito layer, showing him staring at the little monster with a “deer in the headlights” expression. Sequence numbers: A4 END (Yukito), B1 END (Touya’s bike), C17 END (Touya and sweatdrop), D7 END (Kaijuu Sakura) 

This cel has unfortunately suffered pretty severe line fading, particularly in Sakura’s hair and backpack. Still, it’s a delightful image of this sibling love/hate relationship. The foreshortening of Sakura’s arm, which seemingly “sticks out” of the top cel layer, is very well realized.

I felt this cel really needed an outdoors background to set off the figures, so I gave it an original but unmatching CCS background, Li’s Tree from Episode 41. As both cuts have an odd perspective looking up from near the ground, making Sakura look bigger than she actually is, the two work together surprisingly well.

Heh. Y’think some other fellow who tries to judge this little tyke’s capabilities is going to end up later on with the same “deer in the headlights” look once he’s gotten Sakura’s inner kaijuu good and angry?
