    Akira Tetsuo and Kaori Production Cels and Animation Drawings Group of 8 (Streamline Pictures, 1988). When most fans think of this groundbreaking feature-length anime film the first things to come to mind are the amazing futuristic motorcycles. The film takes place in 2019, and it could be argued that the motorcycles of today have yet to reach the cool factor of those in this film. Presented here is a collection of original hand-painted production cels and drawings featuring motorcycles from this cult classic. First is a cel of Tetsuo and Kaori on a big red bike after he escaped the hospital. The image measures 3.5" x 2" on a roughly trimmed pan cel that measures approximately 12" x 9". With it are two more 14 field cels of motorbikes crashing with one in mid-explosion and the other going under a truck's front bumper. Those two setups are accompanied by their mating animation drawing. Rounding out the lot is a magnificent drawing of Tetsuo and Kaori on their bike rendered in graphite and colored pencil 7" x 5". This lot comes with two studio-issued Certificates of Authenticity. The entire lot shows handling, condition is Very Good.
