    Sailor Moon Sailor Moon and Leshy Production Cel Setup with Key Master Background (Toei Animation, c. 1992-97). Sailor Moon narrowly dodges an attack from the wicked tree-like Cardian Leshy in this astounding and large hand-painted original production cel from the hit classic anime series Sailor Moon. From the 51st episode of the series, "A New Transformation! Usagi's Power-Up", in which Sailor Moon uses her "Moon Princess Halation" attack for the first time, this spectacular setup can be seen at the 19:23 mark. This incredibly rare piece is presented on its Key Master background hand-painted in gouache on background board. A dynamic and action-packed shot featuring the eponymous and iconic hero in a kinetic full-figure pose, this Key Master setup measures a jaw-dropping 20" x 14.25". Truly fantastic, the setup shows minor handling and edge wear from normal studio use, and the background has some wrinkling and tearing near the top edge. It is showcased on page 145 of the German Film Institute's gallery exhibition book Ga-Netchu! The Manga Anime Syndrome. The condition of this magnificent piece from the genre-defining series is Very Good.
    From the Glad Museum Collection.
