The sketch lot preserved the bottom cel layer of this scene, showing two of the young people Mira has convinced, along with portions of the rest who, like the woeful one-eyed fellow in the lower center, remain seated and indecisive.

This is not much of a cel, but it is worth a look to show how Studio CLAMP artfully layered their animation work. The two standing extras are realized as individuals with distinctive and colorful outfits, even though the three moving characters on the top layer will hide most of them throughout the cut. On the other hand, only half of the face of the glum guy just to the left of Mira is visible, and so he earns only one eye and a noticeably vaguer cloak. The even more anonymous figure to his right is just a humanoid blob that fills in the slit of space between Mira and his moving supporter on the right.

So . . . details where they might matter, even in a subliminal way. But when they never, never will be seen, don’t sweat them.
