Train Fight (A13)

Episode 22: Danger on a Runaway Locomotive
I have the sequence mate of this A12 and this was one of those scenes where the animation was too quick and you can see from A12 to A13 where the motion isn’t fluid and just jumps from one frame to the next. You won’t notice it on screen but frame by frame you can see the short cut taken by the animators. I do like this cel better though because 1) Kenshin isn’t spewing his own blood 2) You can see an action profile shot of Kenshin’s face with his ponytail flying!

This cel and the A12 has been paired together for many years so I went ahead and decided to give both of them a home in my gallery. It’s fun to have sequence mates especially if they’re not so much alike!
