Cut 250. In a continuation of this cut, Kotomi chatters on some more in her flighty way. It’s just a superstition anyhow, she comments, and she never had any wish come true when she used it. Why are all these people making a huge uproar over something that’s nothing more than a piece of rock, yada yada ...

Meanwhile, the perspective is playing over the faces of the two stone-crossed females, who know full well that the shrine holds real, dangerous magic, and we see their worry and concern. They start to leave, and Kotomi turns back to them.

The gengas at this point are all partial, so I’ve featured the B20 END douga, which nicely catches what now looks like real concern on Kotomi’s face. Interestingly, it’s not the same worry that I notice on the earlier sketches. Because (as I read the series) she knows full well what’s happened and who the two girls really are, and what needs to be done to switch them back. And she’s well aware that the wishing stone’s disappearance puts them in a bind, as it leaves no way for them to change back, (not that they’re having a whole lot of success at that before the stone is purloined). And she’s playing with them a little – but not unkindly. Still, she senses that she’s unintentionally hurt them a bit, and wants to part on better terms.

The wishing stone excitement fades from the story almost immediately. But it’s worth keeping this little exchange in the back of your mind. For when you get to the last scene of the last episode, you’ll find that some hints passed on in this cut here will help you grasp the final resolution to the plot.
