The Lolikko Cutie part was storyboarded, directed and animated by Takeuchi Tetsuya by himself. At least the credit technically said it. The remaining problem is whether it was actually "by himself". It indeed looks like it is, though. Uh, where are good key animators except him? I wanted to watch Takeuchi's followers' work as well.

Up to the end of Jin's carving scene? I thought his work was before the OP. I'll have to watch ep1 once more.

What's with Nagi's face after watching Lolikko Cutie? You can't be like her after Takeuchi's episode. lol.
