Fangirl Ranting: I think I died and landed in Saiyuki fangirl heaven with the addition of this amazing piece to my collection. I had long dreamed of having a hanken cel from this show, but I never, never, never believed that dream would actually come true. I was so excited when I was offered this cel, and I jumped at the chance to own it. I am so, so glad that I did!

I love so many things about this one. For one thing, it's in amazing condition, which is even more surprising when you consider the fact that this cel is a BEAST. Except for one little crease in a top corner, I didn't find any issues with it or damage to it. For a cel this big to survive in such great condition for this many years is pretty astounding; storing a cel this large is no easy task, after all! Similarly, scanning this bad boy also wasn't easy. Thanks to Photoshop, I was able to scan all the different bits and stitch them together into a fairly complete image of the entire cel. I'm so happy I didn't have to show only a small part of it. I think this beauty deserves to be seen in all its glory.

I love the colors in this cel. They are vibrant and beautiful. And I love how the image shows so much of the characters' personalities. From Goku's gung-ho, ready to fight attitude ... to Kougaigi's serious outlook on the world ... all the way down to Sanzo's typical "I don't give a F***" expression, everything about it is perfect and perfectly gorgeous. And now, I want to head off to watch some Saiyuki. Woo Hoo!!
