    Space Pirate Captain Harlock Production Cel with Painted Background (Toei Animation, c. 1978-79). Perfectly encapsulating the spirit of the beloved titular character, this is a marvelous hand-painted original production cel from Leiji Matsumoto's Space Pirate Captain Harlock. Hand-inked and hand-painted, the cel is presented on a painted background rendered in gouache on board. The setup as a whole measures 10.5" x 9.5", and both the cel and background show trimming. The cel is taped along the edges to the background, and it shows some wrinkling through and one small spot of missing paint. The condition overall is Good.
