More cels the next couple of weeks

I've got some Marmalade Boy (Miki, Yuu, Meiko, Arimi, Suzu) on the way. Also more My Little Pony Tales, Tenchi Muyo settei, GXP genga, and PPGZ settei.
Unlike god_hand_777's other two Marmalade Boy sets on YJ, this one, while deteriorated, didn't have the kanji for "vinegar change smell" in the description. I don't know what's going on, on the edges of these cels, but I hope it's not "oxidation smell". I'll keep them separate from the others.

From the translation that google gave me this is a typical description that you would see on a piece that has line fading. As you can see from the scans there is some typical Toei line fading, so that is probably what they mean when they say there is pain. I might see some cel mildew/dirt as well but that is usually hard to see on scans. When you look at them pay attention to the corners because that is where the mildew/dirt usually show up the most.

Yeah, hopefully it''s just dirt, it''s on the way in the mail right now, but this one that somebody else won from the same seller:
I wonder if the winner of that auction read the second to the last sentence in the shouhin setsumei section "Tashou no toryrou no sanka shuu ga arimasu". "Somewhat the paints have an oxidation smell."
Here''s another one from them with the same warning:

And on that second one, click on the image of Arimi and Yuu and look on the right side of it. That scared me off. I don''t what was going on, but I wouldn''t put that anywhere near other cels if that was mine.

Cel arrived from Yolanda. It looks great! Thanks!

Posted the cel. Since the oversized cels I''ve been using Windows Photo Gallery to make panoramas of multiple images stitched together. So now I can scan cels larger than my scanner. I''ll update some of the others when I get time.

The 2 batches of Powerpuff Girls Z settei are named after the auctions they came from, "1" and "III". I can''t afford the other $250 of settei right now. I''m thinking about getting another one though because these ones don''t have Rowdyruff Boys or Him.
