You mentioned a few times about doing your
homework and checking your resources before you
buy a cel. I was wondering if you had some tips
for people like me who are fairly new to cel
I try to buy cels from dealers who have proven
themselves respectable. I rarely buy cels on Ebay
(and when I have it has been from someone on this
board), but I do buy them on Yahoo Japan. I am
always a little concerned since I can't read
kanji and the translators are questionable.
Whenever possible, I look for the scene that the
cel is from and match it against the original.
But I know that this is not a foolproof method
since some copies out there are quite good. I've
seen some people mention before about colors not
being right. But how can you be sure? None of the
cels I own match the colors that show up on my
In short, I was hoping you could give me some
advice on how I can protect myself.
