Welcome to my cel gallery! Feel free to take a look through the gallery and make comments. It's been years since I've really talked with anyone who visits here, so it'd definitely be nice to hear from you!
About Sending Feedback via Rubberslug I've received word that sending feedback via Rubberslug's feedback form does not always work. There are days when I receive messages just fine and others when I receive nothing even though I've been told elsewhere that a message was sent! So to avoid this head-scratching nuisance, please send your feedback messages to my E-mail address instead. kikoutei_rekkaAThotmailDOTcom (of course, replace the "AT" and "DOT" with the proper punctuation.
Quick explanation about series organization: Although I like all forms of art and will occasionally pick up a cel or two from a show I don't normally collect, my main focus and love goes to the series at the top of the list, under the Absolute Favorites title. These are B't X, Gulkeeva, Samurai Troopers, the Ys OVAs (especially Heaven's Sanctuary), and Takegami. Should you come across any nice cels from these shows, I would most certainly like to hear from you!! I may consider trades if you have something I'm desperately looking for! :D
The rest of the gallery is organized according to MINOR FAVORITES, shows that didn't make the cut into ABSOLUTE, shows that I liked but didn't make the MINOR FAVORITES list, and then lastly any other show under the rest. If you're looking to make offers, those are the series I am most likely to let go!
*** Currently Taking Offers ***
I have successfully moved and am well situated in my new place in Yokohama, although I am still very much in debt. I am on an extremely tight budget until payday on the 20th and once that day comes, I have to pay two month's rent at once to be able to legally have my cat (she's kinda a secret right now...!!).
So I will keep offers open. If you see something you like in my gallery, please send me a message with a serious offer. Please understand that I probably will not accept any offers for my top titles...and there are still many in my non-main titles that I cannot part with. That said, you're still welcome to try anyway. All transactions will be through Paypal.
I recently took a tour through my cel books and put it up on YouTube. There are a total of seven videos and I had all of them playable from this page, but since it made the page much longer, I'm only going to display the first one here. You can see the rest of the videos on my YouTube page. Also about these videos, I'm not the best gabber and I often start calling ALL characters "Teppei". lol
News & Updates
I have been off the grid in terms of cels since pretty much the beginning of the year, and I'm really sorry about that. A lot of things have happened all at once that has caused me to withdraw from certain hobbies. If anyone is curious to read in more detail what's been going on, you can find that info here.
I am still collecting. I have a ton of new cels that I still need to scan but haven't had the time or energy to get around to it. I just added one new find from the Ys II OVA...first cel from that show I've found in 3 years.
I have every intention to get back into gear and contact with people, but things in my personal life still have not settled down...so I'm trying to allocate my energy toward those issues.
If anyone needs to reach me, please take a look at all the various methods of contact that you can use through my website: firesanctuary.com
Thanks, guys and I appreciate your understanding!! <3
Well, a couple weeks ago, I updated a bunch of items and added many new titles...but didn't list them all here in the news section. Sorry!
I just scanned many of my other new items and will be working on adding them in the next couple of days. The first couple goodies are of my boy Ryo from the Samurai Troopers OVA: Gaiden. These are the first additions to this category in about 10 years! Holy cow!! xD
Looks like I haven't updated anything since August..? I have many cels yet to scan and add to the site, but I've been throughly preoccupied with the up-coming release of Drag-on Dragoon 3 (Drakengard 3), which will be out in less than two weeks now!! Very excited! So, anyway, I'll try to get some updates going as soon as I can. I also need to replace that featured cel... arg!! I can never keep up! :P
Holy cow! Thanks to sensei over at Anime Beta, I've *finally* figured out how to manipulate the order of the series list. It's not perfect yet, but I think I've managed to order them in a way that I like. So, yay!!!! I've been fighting over this for sooo many years! *sigh* THANK YOU, SENSEI!!
