Near the conclusion of the movie, Holy Bell joins Belldandy in a song to heal the wounded Earth. This powerful ending gives us one of the best views of this angel, here so empowered as to dwarf the goddess herself in the actual scene. Sequence Number: D13.

There are two cuts in this scene showing Bell, and cels from both are held by several RS curators. One, on an A-layer, shows her closer up and has her wings on the same layer. The other, the cut from which this cel comes from, is a more dramatic and complicated set-up: a smaller image of Belldandy and layers of power ‘swooshies” are superimposed on Bell’s image, while her wings were painted on separate cel layers in front of and behind her. All of these cels seem to have been sold by dealers as partials like this, but the design gives Bell such a monumental “Statue of Liberty” heft that it’s hard to be critical. And the copy background also adds quite a bit of impact, too, ne?

But to get a sense of the entire set-up ... move ahead to the next item!

You can see other cels from this cut in in Baka-Inu Cels (the D9) in Renee’s Cel Gallery (the D22), and in Doug's Cels (the D24).

This cel, along with three others, came to me in a trade from Cristy of Gates of Alyssium, one of the most comprehensive and fascinating of the AMG galleries out there. It’s well worth a visit if only to watch the cel images in all the little reanimated thumbnails move around, kinda like the pictures on the walls at Hogwarts.
