    Galaxy Express 999 Tetsuro Hoshino and Maetel Production Cel Setup with Painted Background (Toei Animation, 1978-81). A perfect showcase of the unmistakable character designs of Leiji Matsumoto, this is a great hand-painted original production cel setup featuring the potato-faced Tetsuro Hoshino and the elegantly beautiful Maetel from the space opera anime series Galaxy Express 999. Presented on a painted background rendered in gouache, the setup is trimmed to 10.25" x 8". The piece shows stapling on the right side with handling and edge wear with some surface scuffing. The condition is Good.
