Miscellaneous Midorikawa Hikaru Character Cels

Series: Weiss Kreuz (Schuldig)
Series: Gundam Wing (Heero Yuy)
Series: Fushigi Yuugi (Tamahome & Taka)
Series: Lost Universe (Rail Claymore)
Series: Slayers (Zelgadis)

These are the Midorikawa Hikaru characters who don't yet have categories of their own (plus any group cels that can't be better categorised yet). Hopefully some of them (at least Schuldig and Heero) will soon.

Up next will be one more Rail, a few Michael Grant, more Heero Yuy, Faust, Lyle, Kagura, a couple of Rukawa Kaede, and another Schuldig group. Which might mean this category will need some further breaking down. Hrm.

Episode #: 23: Schraube/Everything for Love
Stats: 2 layers, stuck, B8 KEY/C9 (mouth)
Sketches: 1 matching (B8), unstuck
Comments: Schuldig and Farfarello are in the car, shortly before Schu begins carrying out the Sakura plan. Farfarello asks if it tastes like honey to read minds in this instance. Schuldig responds that it isn't all that rosey, the mind of the other comes into him and (this cel is during the following) at times he can't make a dinstinction between which mind is his and which is theirs. Nice moment for a nice cel. *runs away before the urge to get starry-eyed takes hold*
Episode #: ?
Stats: 1 layer, A9
Sketches: none
Comments: Stuck to colour paper. I should ID this soon. Gee, when does Schuldig smirk evilly in the series?
Episode #: 24: Ende Des Weiss/Those of the Light
Stats: 1 layer, A7
Sketches: 1 matching, stuck
Comments: SPOILER. Schuldig enters through the window, then gets past Yohji and Ken to reclaim Aya. She's not in the bed he expected to find her in, so he laugh/hmphs here and then says "not bad". He has reason to not seem legitimately perturbed by the development though.
Episode #: Mission 11: Abkunft. Separating from the Spell.
Stats: 1 layer, A7 KEY
Sketches: none
Comments: Ah, it's the exact "I'm going to borrow him" moment that caused me to fall in love with Schuldig. So naturally I have a couple of cels from this scene (the other still needs to be scanned). Omi looks more like a doll than an unconscious human, but Schuldig is still a cutie. (Or, as always, "HE'S SOOOO"... Never mind.)
Episode #: 10: Heero Blasted into Pieces
Stats: 1 layer, A10
Sketches: none
Comments: SPOILER!!!!! (Though maybe not after the episode title, hrm.) Part of the episode that made me really start to like this series, it's Heero self-detonating both himself and his mecha on command. Lady Une (when I really wanted to see her get shot in the head) declared that the Gundam pilots should surrender or the colonies would be blown up. So they did, but Heero was ordered to not allow his Gundam to be confiscated by the enemy. It takes not only an impressive soldier but an incredibly screwed up kid (in this instance) to blow up on command. The green "background" is colour paper. I am extremely happy to have this cel. Thanks for letting me buy it, Cindy!
Episode #: ?
Stats: 1 layer, A23
Sketches: 1 matching, unstuck
Comments: And a sad puppy Heero, albeit a teensy one. This was my first Heero cel. I think it was even my first GW cel. Sure, it's small... but I've decided to remain fond of its cuteness.
Episode #: OAV 2-6: To Be With You Tomorrow
Stats: 3 layers, A30/B9/C2 (all) KEY END
Sketches: two partial, A30 & B9, unstuck, & 1 partial unstuck B7-B9
Background: unstuck, not sure if it matches
Comments: This is... Tamahome? SPOILER!!!! At the end of the OAVs, Taka is fighting the other Tamahome. He lectures him about having low self-confidence, punches him in the face, says he won't lose to him or himself (would that be to either of himselves?). This Tamahome fumes and begins glowing for a big attack (here), while yelling "Teme!". There would be an FX layer of red glow over this cel. His attack winds up hitting Miaka, who had decided she likes Taka better and therefore stepped in the way. Always was waffly with the men, wasn't she?
Episode #: OAV 2-1: Enchantment's Quickening
Stats: 2 layers, B1 KEY & A17 KEY END
Sketches: two matching, unstuck
Comments: Tamahome (as his reincarnation Taka) and Tasuki, the happy brawlers, in the midst of a joyous reunion. The two of them love to fight (with each other, particularly, but nearly anyone is fine otherwise). Here we have Taka's first moments back in the book, becoming reacquainted with Tasuki who just torched him along with the monster behind him. Taka screams into Tasuki's face, while holding his collar, "What's the idea? Nearly burning a guy to death!". This causes Tasuki to ask, afterward, "Is he on some kind of dangerous drugs again?". It's how he is accustomed to Tamahome being when they meet. Yet another cel that fell victim to the dying scanner and has a date scheduled with the new one.
Episode #: 51 or 52?
Stats: 1 layer, A1 KEY
Size: 32" wide x 13.75" tall
Sketches: one matching, unstuck
Comments: Tamahome, from his final fight with Nakago. This is a large pan cel. It does not fit in the massive portfolio I use for other large cels, and it worries me. At some point the sequence # was trimmed off and taped to the side, likely to make the cel slightly less gangly. As if that helped! Unfortunately I had to use a small low quality scan of this one, but I should be able to replace it with a higher quality scan shortly.
Episode #: 12: Coconut Crab Massacre
Stats: 1 layer, A8
Sketches: 1 partial, unstuck
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
Stats: 1 layer, C2
Sketches: 1 matching, unstuck
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!
Episode #: ?
Stats: 1 layer, B8
Sketches: 1 matching, unstuck
Comments: An adorable little tiny Rail in uniform. Sure, I would like to have an adorable big Rail in uniform. I would like to have many different and bigger Rail cels. But I'm happy to have what I have, since he is so scarce. And I owe some thanks to Cindy for letting me have both of my Rail cels!
Episode #: Try:
Stats: 1 layer, A7
Sketches: 1 matching, unstuck
Comments: Filia, Zelgadis, and Xellos. It's probably rare to see Xellos and Filia together in the same cel without seeing them antogonising each other.
