Air Date:

Animation Director:  Takeda Yoshihiro
The Scene: This episode is really more about Sakura's relationship with the cards, than about Toya and Yukito, although it has two scenes that are some of my favorite Toya/Yukito moments. 

Yukito had not walked with Toya to school in the morning, and Yukito wants to walk back home himself. Even though his magic is so depleted now that he is barely functioning.

Toya tries to start another of 'those' conversations with his dear 'friend' H calls him back...

Yukito: ...So don't worry.
Toya: Yuki.

Yukito turns, slowly starting with this sad expression, which turns into one of those blindingly bright smiles, that just HURT to look at. The cel is just before the smile.

Yukito: (softly) what?

Why?: I LOVE this scene. You can tell that Toya is at his wits end. Yukito is being stubborn, and he doesn't know what to do. What's also interesting about this scene is that there is also this undercurrent of jealousy that Yukito has for Nakuru. Who can come up and touch Toya in public in anyway that she wants, when he can only watch from afar...

About the Cel: The cel is in really good shape, not key by any means, and I am using a background that I have used before in place of the original sky background with the skeletal tree branches...
