Sakura and Yukito, and the Midday Moon
Sakura to Yukito to Hiru no Tsuki
さくらと雪兎と昼の月

Air Date: December 22, 1998

Animation Director:  Fujita Mariko

The Scene: Sakura and Yukito go missing, and it's evening. Just as Toya and Syaoran are going to go look for them, they appear. Toya runs up to them, with Sakura supporting the injured Yukito, and gives his friend this smile, before asking Sakura what happened.

Why?: It is a lovely cel, and Toya very rarely smiles he is almost always very blank faced or suspicious, or pensive. So when he does smile he is 1. Smiling at Yuki, 2. Smiling at Sakura... Luckily for me it was at Yuki ;)

About the Cel: There is some paint loss in the cel around his hair in one spot where the strands get small. There is of course the typical line fading which has definitely become a new thing since starting to collect CCS. The line fading used to be minimal but as the series gets older I've been seeing more line fading in CCS as time goes marching on. I have rebagged and started the microchamber paper system.
