This seller has been donating profit to victims of Tohoku Earthquake, and for this auction, he’ll be doing the same. Unfortunately, he’s unable to upload all 125 films as Yahoo doesn’t allow uploading more than three photos (unless you do a proxy trick to get around it). If you are interested, the bidding ends on June 19th, 2014 at 6:54 in PDT.

As Miyazaki Says Goodbye to Filmmaking, Auction Heats up Over Cels from His Film

Hayao Miyazaki announced his official retirement from filmmaking a couple of days ago, at least in feature films. We will miss his work for sure!
Meanwhile, lots of Miyazaki films’s cels are showing up on Yahoo Japan Auction. Today we found an auction listing for this amazing set of Porco Rosso original anime cels, Miyazaki’s sixth feature film released in 1992.

porco-rosso-ghibli-miyazaki-anime-cel-rinkya-japan5 porco-rosso-ghibli-miyazaki-anime-cel-rinkya-japan6

The seller purchased these cels in 1992 when Studio Ghibli used to sell original artwork through an anime magazine called Animage (Animage has strong affiliation with Miyazaki even before he became famous. This is where he used to run manga series of Nausicaa in his pre-Ghibli days).
The set consists of 9 standalone cels, 1 cel with background painting, and an original envelope that Studio Ghibli used to send them out.


A very handsome shot of Porco.


Here’s a beautifully hand painted background. The painting has been slightly cut smaller to optimize for selling purpose. Below is how this piece was actually used with the cel of Savoia and Curtis planes and over it (this cel is also included in the set).





There are five cels of Fio in total. All of them capture charming expressions of Fio.






Porco’s Savoia.


…and Mr. Piccolo.

Also included in the set is an original envelope stamped with Studio Ghibli’s name and address.




It’s great to see cels from such beautiful, definitive scenes, in such condition and with an original packaging from Ghibli. A fantastic set to have in your collection indeed.
