Ep. 5, cut 61. Because Karada is used to carrying out basic house chores for her big brother, she shifts to the job of vacuuming and doing the laundry without a hitch. Shōko by contrast finds herself left with nothing to do but to watch this precocious child perform the normal household routine of a dutiful wife. Here she’s watching grimly from the sidelines while Karada hangs up the clean clothes to air-dry.

This set did preserve the early stages of sketching, including the layout, Episode Animation Director Sumie Kinoshita’s rough, and a complete rough shuusei by Senior AD Ikuko Itō. That image, which became the basis of the genga, is featured above. Notice the characteristic “T⅔” (= “shuusei”) label that is a trademark of Itō’s sketches.

The very impressionistic layout is added in the first thumb. That includes an anatomical issue that caused a problem in Kinoshita’s rough (second thumb): notice that in both Karada’s left arm is out of proportion and seemingly too short. Also, the facial expression is undeniably cute -- so sure of what she’s doing! -- but the little tyke doesn’t look like Karada! Both issues are expertly handled in Itō’s correction: the face now is right and the elbow hangs down farther and putting the arm into proportion with the rest of Karada’s body.
