Cut 148. A series of helter-skelter scenes follow, showing the oni’s backstory in a fierce war among demons and yōkai for dominance. After short cuts showing the combatants clawing, slicing, and biting each other, we see Rengokuki’s face. He opens his mouth and belches out an energy ball.

This sketch, done in colored pencil and touched up in graphite, covered only a portion of the sheet, but in production the animators decided to make this an intense close-up. The animator (I believe episode animation director Shin’ichi Sakuma) did a whole series of sketches, showing the energy ball emerging as a fiery globe, which expanded as it sped forward. This simple reanimation shows this first idea.

Two of the sketches are digitally combined in the first thumbnail. However, the studio felt that this would involve an unnecessary amount of animation. So in the end the oni and his creator had to settle for an egg-shaped CGI blob that could be added in post-production with much less creative energy.
