    Case Closed Pan Production Cel Setup with Key Master Background and Animation/Layout Drawing Group of 4 (TMS Entertainment, c. 1990s). From the long-running mystery anime hit Case Closed (also known as Detective Conan), this is an astonishing hand-painted original pan production cel setup presented on its rare and gorgeous Key Master background hand-painted in gouache on background board. Telling the story of high school detective Shinichi Kudo (renamed as Jimmy Kudo in several English translations) who was transformed into a child while investigating a mysterious organization, Case Closed tells hundreds of compelling mystery stories over the course of its still-ongoing run. An excellent showcase of water effect and pan camera techniques, the impressive setup is also accompanied by two matching original animation drawings rendered in graphite and color pencil. In addition, this remarkable lot also offers the rough layout drawing created to compose the shot. The rare Key Master setup measures an overall 12" x 16", and the drawings are 10.75" x 16". Each item shows minor handling and edge wear, from normal studio use, and the setup is stapled in the bottom right corner. The condition overall is Very Good.
