The first image is the cel on the background, and the second image is the unstuck matching pencil sketch. The third image is of the original matching pencil layout. The fourth and final image is another scan of the cel on a white background. There is a tiny area of paint loss in the black line on the left side shoulder, and a few very small paint spots.Otherwise, this cel is in awesome shape, especially considering the age of the piece. The original matching watercolor background is hand-painted and measures about 10 x 14 inches - There is one small area of (yellowed) tape on the back, by the top edge. You can't see it on the painted side. Otherwise, the background is in great shape.
The matching unstuck pencil sketch has some paint transfer, and one rough area. Despite these minor issues, this sketch by itself is a magnificent piece.The matching original pencil layout has some tape and tape residue at the top, as you can see in the scan. All animation art has minor wear and tear, as it was actually used during the production of the anime OVA. This amazing cel has been a part of my collection for over 15 years. This is my very last Opening cel, and it's the best one I've ever seen. I have no more cels from the opening sequence after this one. The rest are already in the hands of collectors and they aren't letting them go.
