Air Date:

Animation Director: Katsumi Tamegai
 
Scene Summary: (Right after after previous cel) Makoto says she encouraged Tomoko to apply for magazine awards. She used to read Tomoko's stories and tell her her impressions; Tomoko worked hard on writing since it cheered her up, and her first try, "Pegasus in the Moonlight", was a big success. Makoto didn't get to celebrate with Tomoko though since she transferred schools. Makoto looks a bit depressed. (cel)

Why?: It's a really pretty cel in that same outfit which she seems to where a lot in SuperS. It's also a really great scene in a Makoto-centric episode, she is talking about her life before being a sailor senshi, which only happen a few times throughout the series. I think this gives her some closure with another portion of her prior life.

About the Cel: The sketch in this instance tells a better story than the cel... The sketch seems to have been almost copied off of the previous sequence number, then erased around the eyes, then redrawn to show movement mid blink. It takes quite a bit of vid-kung-fu to get the exact screenshot (lol) The shading is just lovely in this sketch and it is definately carried over into the final product.
