Animation Director: Katsumi Tamegai
The Scene: Chibi-usa, Makoto, and Usagi have gone over to Tomoko's house to encourage her to write more... Chibi-usa tries and it does not work, then Makoto goes, the cel happens when she says this: "If there's even one person who'll read your story, you would write those stories for that reader! Wasn't that your dream?"

Why?: This is a great scene it's about, Makoto and her enduring friendship, her love of a good story, and her absolute faith in those she cares about. I'm also an avid reader so this particular episode really resonates with me. :)

About the cel: There is the typically depressing Sailor Moon line fading. There is one good thing about cels with differences in lighting there is always some hand done lines in the colored areas that do not fade like the terrible xerox lines. Really great scene and I really like this cel, also the extra perspective in the cel that is painted but didn't make it in to the end image is amusing tiny legs, and tiny hands! :)
