I got the whole douga set (just six sketches), so here is a reanimation that closely mimics the directions on the timing sheet: 12-to-a-second, no tricks. I’ve added a blank frame to the start and finish, however, to frame the lightning-quick cut.

Watch how the scissors start to arc up and toward the right as Sou moves in. In the next cut, you’ll see them come up and over her head and through the crow-feather cape, which gives enough resistance that Sou, following her attack’s momentum, ends up doing a little flip. (Magical characters in dreamland need to seem to obey the laws of physics at times.)

Notice too how that fluttery bow, along with Sou’s eyes, seem to linger on your eyes a little after the cut ends.

It was interesting to see from the timing sheet that this version was “Take 2,” so there must have been an earlier version that did not satisfy the studio and was thoroughly redrawn.
