Episode 9 (ウサギマン Usagiman, “Bunny Man”), cut 147. Needing a power-up to fight their enemies in the dream world, the principals are entangled in a real-world complication that requires them to work together as a team. They extricate themselves by getting a temp. job at a local department store, where they have to wear bunny suits (hence the title). After we see the other characters make their bows, the timid Mizuki appears, visibly uncomfortable about her revealing outfit.

This image went through two stages of development. Featured is the rough, likely by episode animation director Kumi Horii (堀井 久美). This artist served a long apprenticeship, doing gengas and inbetweeners for many important series, including Cardcaptor Sakura, Cowboy Bebop, Inuyasha, the Miyazaki film Porco Rosso, Rayearth (TV and OAV), and Vampire Princess Miyu (TV). He moved to episode direction with The Big O and then to character design/chief animation director for a number of series, particularly those with an ecchi emphasis, such as Ah My Buddha and Cat Planet Cuties.

This, along with the layout (first thumb) and a genzu on pink paper (second thumb, perhaps by episode director Makoto Sozuka, who storyboarded the episode), were done on standard pan-sized sheets of 16.5 x 11.5 inches. However, a second storyboard (not imaged) blew the image up about 50%, resulting in a monumental genga of 20 x 14 inches, one of the largest sketches in my collection. See next item.
