An original Production cel from the Tetsujin 28 anime series, dating back to 1980-1981, featuring a captivating close-up of Shotaro Kaneda, holds immense historical and aesthetic significance. Tetsujin 28, also known as Gigantor, is a pioneering series in the mecha genre, and the 1980-1981 adaptation contributed to the continued popularity of the iconic robot.

The original manga by Mitsuteru Yokoyama was released in 1956.

This particular cel, adhered to its original douga, provides a unique glimpse into the meticulous craftsmanship of traditional animation. The close-up of Shitaro Kaneda captures a moment frozen in time, showcasing the artistry involved in bringing characters to life frame by frame.

The presence of missing paint, while indicative of the cel's age and the wear it has endured, adds an extra layer of charm and storytelling to the piece. The exposed douga pencil lines, where the paint has worn away, offer a poignant visual narrative, revealing the intricate pencil strokes that guided the creation of this animated sequence. This imperfection, far from diminishing its value, contributes to the cel's authenticity and the passage of time, enhancing its overall artistic allure.

In essence, possessing this original Tetsujin 28 cel is not just owning a collector's item but holding a tangible piece of animation history. It's a testament to the artistry of the animators and the enduring legacy of a series that has left an indelible mark on the world of anime. The cel's imperfections only serve to heighten its uniqueness, making it a cherished artifact for enthusiasts and collectors alike.
