This is a cel from Sailor Moon episode 1 "Crybaby Usagi's Magnificent Transformation". This is from the scene where Molly's mother transforms to reveal herself as the youma Morga while attempting to choke her to death.

I love episode one cels, and this is a great shot from the first episode of Sailor Moon! I love the fact that this is the first MOTD Sailor Moon had to fight, and I really like that it's from the creepy transformation shot. What attracted me the most to this cel was the fact that it's another pseudo OP shot for me. This scene of Morga transforming into her true self was put into the English Sailor Moon opening, so I was really excited to be able to add a part of that shot to my collection since it's one I always saw as a kid. It's a very creepy image of the show's first ever MOTD and I enjoy being able to have it as both a pseudo-OP cel and as a shot of Sailor Moon's first big enemy.

Also, as for the animation aspect of the cel, I think it's really neat to have been able to get a cel that was used in a transformation scene like this. You can see in the screenshot that the colors are still blended with that of Morga's other identity as Molly's mother. It's pretty cool how the animators can do things like that with cels. The more that I collect cels, the more amazed I get with cel animation over CGI with the technological aspects like this. ^_^

I've also decided to put up a youtube video of the intro for each opening and pseudo-opening cel I own. (Especially since this is one of my favorite openings! I still get chills from the guitar part at 0:54.) You can see where this cel appears at about 0:20 onwards.
