Inuyasha kicks off with his right leg and releases that left leg, and with a snarl he lifts off in Sesshomaru’s direction.

This too is a fine nearly complete genga shuusei, with the genga it corrected in the first thumbnail. Again that tiny but troublesome face is much more successfully done (notice how the ears stick up a little more in the shuusei), and Nakajima shows both legs unflexing, while the gengaman shows the right leg still tightly flexed. That realistically shows that the dog demon uses both legs to propel his big leap.

Even if it’s a supernaturally powered move in a weird alternate universe, Sunrise understood, it still needs to look powerful in terms of earthbound martial arts anatomy, rather than being a flimsy-looking levitation from one spot to another.

This image showed on the screen for 1/12 of a second, as I realized full well when I tried over and over and over to get it to freeze on my screen for the capture. Nevertheless, Nakajima ensured that it would be 125% perfect, well worth the leisurely viewing that you now can have.

The second thumb adds the top of the opened timing sheet so you can appreciate the lightning quick timing of this action scene, “on twos” or a frame each twelfth of a second except for the “wind-up” A3 keyframe, which holds for a lazy sixth of a second (just enough for your eyes to register).
