    Ninja Scroll Jubei and Kagero Production Cel with Master Background (Madhouse, 1993). From the tragic death scene at the beginning of the climactic third act of the celebrated anime classic Ninja Scroll, this is a fantastic hand-painted original production cel setup featuring Jubei and Kagero. Written and directed by Yoshiaki Kawajiri of Wicked City and Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust fame, Ninja Scroll is regarded by many as one of the most influential anime films ever made. Alongside Akira and Ghost in the Shell, it was responsible for increasing the popularity of adult-oriented anime outside of Japan. Seen at the 1:14:49 mark of the film, this incredible piece is presented on an original Master background hand-painted in gouache on background board. The setup measures an overall 14" x 10", and the background bears the numbers 23 and C-109 in the upper corners. The cel is numbered A2. The piece shows minor handling and edge wear, and the condition is Very Good.
