Cut 108. After catching Yuusuke, Noelle holds him in mid-air for a while, smiling in satisfaction and saying (as if this needed explaining), “Yuusuke, I’m an angel!”

I’ve featured the rough from this short but significant sketch set. Notice how much detail is in this sketch, even at this preliminary stage, especially those crucial eyes, which are the focal point of this brief cut. The thumbs add a preliminary genzu (again emphasizing those eyes) and a very elegant and carefully refined shuusei genga.

Four animation directors were credited for this visually complex episode, with character designer/chief AD Hiromi Kato listed first. I believe Kato was the artist for these sketches for two reasons. First, it is an important moment that I think the senior sakkan would have wanted to be just right.

Second, the breadth of the pencil strokes and visual feel of the sketch is very similar to another dramatic sketch from Step 21. That “shuusei no shuusei” (corrected correction) replaced a less satisfactory shuusei by that episode’s animation director. So it must have been done by the senior artist's supervisor, i.e., Hiromi Kato the series animation director.
