Cut 310. The following cut moves to a closer perspective, showing Shinku still gazing in horror at the ragged rip in her costume that shows where she’s been hurt.

The featured sketch on turquoise paper is again the work of Episode Animation Director Kimiko Tamai and is a lovely portrait of Shinku’s moment of horrible discovery. The slightly extended hand that plays such a role in the previous cut is still frozen in mid-air, and her wide-eyed expression mixes pain, horror, and (if I’m not mistaken) just a touch of nausea as the doll understands what’s happened to her.

The first thumbnail adds Senior Animation Director Kumi Ishii’s shuusei of this rough. It’s a partial, mostly adjusting the placement of the hairlocks and the contours of Shinku’s clothing. But it also widens the eyes just a bit, bringing out the horror in the mix of emotions a little more strongly.

The second thumbnail adds the layout from which Tamai worked. Like many of these, it’s wrong in so many ways that it’s hard to sort them out. Weak cry-baby expression, awkward posing of the left hand, impossible for the viewer to tell just what she’s reacting to or why. All of these things were quickly and memorably resolved in Tamai’s masterful rough.
