In response to the leader’s orders, one of the hunters named Baku kills the bola by impaling it several times with a set of these oversized pins. Sequence numbers: A12 (bola in the back), C12 (Baku with the big pin). This cel, also oversized (375 x 265) like the previous item shows a lot of action and is again impressive in its attention to detail. But actually, in the final cut, the body of the captive bola (on a top layer that I didn’t get) covers up much of what you see in this cel, so that the Hunter’s left hand with the pin isn’t actually visible at all.

Since the bolas are holding the Hunters’ craft a couple hundred feet in the air, and since killing the captive makes them immediately disperse, allowing the vehicle to crash and burn below, one gets the impression that this wasn’t really the most intelligent thing to do.

But then Soma, the Hunters’ master, never struck me as being the brightest omniscient AI underworld being in the anime drawer.
