My Collection of Cels Featuring Dianna Soreil

It has been a while since I last shared my Turn A Gundam animation cel collection. I’ve slowly amassed a very sizable selection over the years, including cels from cuts by notable animators. In this post however I’d like to highlight my current collection of cels featuring Dianna Soreil. She’s my favorite character, so when shopping around I tend to prioritize items featuring her.

Turn A Gundam’s 20th Anniversary: A Reflection

Turn A Gundam began airing on the 9th of April 1999. Directed by Yoshiyuki Tomino, it celebrated the Gundam franchise’s 20th anniversary as part of Sunrise’s “Big Bang Project”. It has been twenty years since then. To commemorate Turn A Gundam‘s own 20th anniversary, I’d like to reflect on its significance and offer some reasons why I think it’s an anime worth checking out!

Note: this post is relatively spoiler-free.

19th Anniversary: Celebrating the Animation of Turn A Gundam

Turn A Gundam celebrated its 19th anniversary this year on April 9th. Woo-hoo! Now here’s a little treat.

Turn A is unique in that it is the last TV Gundam to be mostly animated through physical cels, a process which began to decline in the anime industry by the late 1990s. In 2015 I made a sakuga MAD commemorating its animation. To celebrate Turn A Gundam‘s 19th anniversary I’ve re-created the video in HD, now with added clips and with fixed errors. Please enjoy.

Turn A Gundam features many animators. Below I’d like to highlight two of its prominent key animators: Atsushi Shigeta and Masami Goto.
