Cel and Screenshot
Paired with a Monster?! Ice Queen Mako
Yōma to pea!? Hyōjō no joō Mako-chan
妖魔とペア!?氷上の女王まこちゃん

Air Date:
 January 9, 1993

Animation Director: Tadano Kazuko
 
The Scene: After skating with the hunkily disguised MOtD, his jealous partner shows up!!! Wanting revenge!!! Of course Makoto jumps in front of him even without henshining!

Why: Again one of my favorite Jupiter episodes... You could just say all the Jupiter Episodes are my favorite but they do seem to have a rank and file ;). I like that she jumps to his defense, even though she knows nothing about him. I also love her skating dress simple and to the point!

About the Cel: The cel is painted from the bottom, the register holes are there I'm not sure why it was done this way but you never can be sure sometimes. I watched the scene and couldn't tell but maybe it has something to do with the fact that there is an obscene amount of pan downs from the top of the ice skating arena in this episode and the directors wanted to make use of the grandiosity of such a large building.
