Rail Claymore & Nina Mercury Cels

Series: Lost Universe

Rail is the counterpart of Zelgadis in an odd way. While Zel is shy and embarrassed about his appearance, Rail clearly knows he is the Adonis of the Universe. The boy can truly strut! Beyond this, and his collection of Girls in Swimsuits video tapes, he's also convinced that he knows best about the way the Universe works. "'Light and dark. Good and evil. God and the Demons have been fighting for centuries.' ... This is all bullshit."

Nina Mercury is a more direct parallel of Amelia in some ways: she's a klutz and she has the sad misfortune of being consumed by a crush on Rail. Aside from dumping hot beverages on Rail, her talent is that her slightest touch can cause any computer (or electronics) to malfunction. She's not the type of character Canal enjoys having around as a result.

Both Rail and Nina are Universal Guardians, aka space-faring cops, with Rail being the superior office. In status! He has a brain, he knows more than anyone should, the elite hackers are envious of his skills, but he spends maybe a little too much time checking on orders for new video tapes instead of working.

Comments: Nina's moment of glory! When everyone is captive... (Feh, I'll add the details shortly. I just want to put a few pages up in this section right now.) I needed to cut the very top of Nina's hair off to get this cel in one scan.
Episode #: 12: Coconut Crab Massacre

Comments: Ahhhh... the quintessential Rail! He almost isn't Rail when he's not video taping, or at least watching, women in bikinis. As he video tapes a coconut crab hunting bikini contest, work calls. Everything in the episode has been blown off with a basic (paraphrased for simplicity) "I'm busy, I'm running surveillance!". It's always good to see such willing devotion to duty.
Episode #: 25 or 26

Comments: SPOILER! I believe this is in episode 26, when Rail and Nina are flying in capsules to Kain, Millie, and Yami o Makumono. Must check!

Comments: An adorable little tiny Rail in uniform. Since I've come up with a uniformed Rail with vixdeo camera as well (now that's Rail in uniform!), this cel has moved to my for auction page. I still love it, but the collection must ever be trimmed.
