Outlaw Star

In Outlaw Star the end of an episode's section is marked by the sound of a gun firing multiple rounds that spell out the series name against a white background in normalized font.[1] The weapon clicks and the stylized logo appears against a inverted background in white font.

The beginning of the episode's eyecatch repeats with a short theme and rapid fire from the gun against the inverted background in normalized font before reverting to a white background. The gun clicks again and the reveals the series' stylized logo in white.[1]

Angel Links

In Angel Links, the end of the first part of an episode is refereed to as a "intermission", invoking the theatrical or cinematic use of the term.[2] The Links Group "Angel Links" logo is repeated in the background like a wallpaper and large cursive in the foreground. Unlike the eyecatch for Outlaw Star, the Angel Links eyecatch never repeats itself to signify the beginning of second part of the episode and uses the fading soundtrack of the concluding scene.[2]
