This great image shows Kitarō twisting dramatically to the right as a blaze erupts in front of him. See the tongues of flame that splatter the foreground to the left: these were painted on the same cel, and Kitarō’s face and hair added on top. The dynamic pose and the alternation of bright orange and deep brown in the hair lines makes this portrait one of the best images of Kitarō I’ve seen to date. Sequence number: A11. This cel is relatively free of oxidation and shows a gap between the teeth, so I think it is from the 1990s Kitarō 4.

The background, like others I’ve gotten from this series, has been trimmed for sale, and not much of it is visible in the scan above. Though the cel came backed with rice paper, it was stored for a time directly against the painting, and so it is somewhat damaged. Nevertheless, it shows an interesting abstract-art approach, and so it’s worth displaying by itself (see thumbnail).
