These cels come from a dramatic moment when Palme, convinced that his companion Shatta does not want him to become human, chooses to go on by himself, dragging poor Popo behind him. As gripping as this cut is, it’s made a little lighter when poor Baron, Palme’s lifelong companion and protector, flaps desperately behind the two, fighting the same stiff head wind.

Baron, a "crow-snake" (so say the subtitles) seems to be a dysfunctional hybrid of bat and lizard body parts, and so his flying skills aren't very graceful even under good conditions. I've combined three cels into one image to show his technique.

The darkness of the corridor, unfortunately, doesn't let you see his rather funny expressions, so click the thumbnails to look at the dougas where they are more clearly shown. I've given the A9 douga a thumb to itself to show how the animators evidently planned a special effect layer to accent one of his awkward but powerful "flaps."

Vapalla’s Cels also owns a similar set of Baron layers from the same cut, the A5, A11, and A30 cels.
