Cellu Club is a series of reproduction cels that were released by Gainax. There are 12 machine reproductions and 6 hand painted ones. I have a complete set of the former, still sealed in their envelopes, and three duplicates which have been opened, marked with an *. This was because I got these 3 first before landing a complete set. The envelope that the machine reproductions comes in is last. The hand painted cels are sequentially numbered to follow the machine reproductions and all of the cels are presented in numerical order. E12

These came with the Blu-ray and DVD releases of 1.11 and 2.22 and are displayed in a cardboard mount. They are arranged by when they appear chronologically in the films. The first image is a frame and the second is the sequence.

Misato speaks with Gendo: Misato speaks with Gendo, who is in space at the moment, after the defeat of the 8th Angel.
The 2 fan cels below were commissioned by Hyperenity Visual Arts. The first is based on a sticker that came with Hakone Road cake, and the second is based on a promo illustration for K-Swiss.
These 2 cels were purchased from Yahoo Japan Auctions. I'm not sure if the artist is the same person as the seller. The detail and quality on both is amazing. The backgrounds are colored paper.
