"I didn’t make many design roughs this time, so I’ll comment on some of the illustration roughs instead.
This is the rough for Volume 9 4C 3 Front aka Volume 9’s color three page foldout poster. This illustration has the quite rare composition of flowing from the left to the right. That’s why the characters are looking and facing to the right.
It doesn’t really matter, but I was originally planning to put Kihara Kagun in Shokuhou-san’s panel, but he had only been in a few illustrations and only one that really showed his face. I thought no one would recognize him if he was in a suit and glasses as Kagun-sensei, so at the line drawing stage I changed it to someone people would recognize: Shokuhou-san."―Kiyotaka Haimura
