Episode 12: cut 12. In the first eleven episodes, the opening prologue that comes in after the “teaser” is the same: we see Shōko is in her adult form and Karada in her child form, as they were before they exchanged ages. But in Ep. 12, for the first and only time, they appear in the prologue in their new forms: Shōko as a child and Karada as an adult.

Significantly, the riddle they intone remains the same, suggesting that wishing to be a different age than you are now actually doesn’t solve anything.

But it sure helps, as the conclusion of this episode points out.

Caution! Fussy Notes

This sketch set shows the care that the studio took with this iconic image. It included:

  • the oversized layout featured above
  • a genzu (or exploratory drawing), possibly by the episode director Kōichi Takada (first thumb).
  • a copy layout of the “normal” version of the prologue, which I’ve included here as the second thumb, although I’ve also given it a place of its own in the AnH Eps. 1-7 gallery.
  • a rough, genga, and douga for this A1 END image
  • a partial shuusei (just part of Shōko’s hand).

    Most of these are generously oversized (325 x 270) to accommodate the show pan up. But the rough was actually done on standard-sized paper and then taped to a sheet of layout stock.
