Rewatchers, please be mindful of your fellow first-timers and tag your spoilers appropriately using the r/anime spoiler tag if your comment holds even the slightest of indicators as to future spoilers. Feel free to discuss future plot points behind the safe veil of a spoiler tag, or coyly and *discreetly* ‘Laugh in Rewatcher’ at our first-timers’ temporary ignorance, but please ensure our first-timers are no more privy or suspicious than they were the moment they opened the day’s thread.


**Daily Trivia:**

> Hisao Ōkawa, one of the screenwriters for the series, apparently was one of few staff that returned to contribute to the series’ 1979 compilation film.


**Staff Highlight**

> An animator, character designer, illustrator, and author best known for his character design work and having mentored many other noted industry figures. Takahashi had loved drawing and desired to become a professional painter from an early age, but he failed the entrance exams to Tokyo University of the Arts twice and was instead directed to Toei Animation by his uncle, where he showed enough talent to be hired on.

His first animation director role was in 1966’s *Rainbow Sentai Robin*, and his first character design role was on 1968’s *Akane-chan*. Takahashi became noted for his female character designs, having contributed to Toei’s ‘Toei Magical Girl Series’ and later several shōjo series. Soe of Takahashi’s more notable credits include *Cyborg 009 (1968)*, *Wandering Sun*, *Sarutobi Echan*, *Majokko Megu-chan*, *Panda!
