And here is the final version of this frame, with Mayuko’s depression made the more effective as we see she is alone on the bus.

Notice the detail on the interior, complete with climate control and window sashes. Also that the animation staff understood that to be realistic the bus had to have sky and scenery outside -- so the sketch set included a simple drawing of what we’d see the bus passing outside (first thumb). The second thumb adds the carefully drawn douga.

And notice that, as finally framed, audiences saw only half of Mayuko’s face (the half with the effective shadow) and virtually none of the realistic hardware of the bus. Also worth noting: the same cut was recycled in Episode 11 as part of another lonely commute to cram school, and may have been used elsewhere in the series also.
