This is a cel from DBZ episode 5 "Gohan's Rage". This is from the scene where Raditz gets ready to kill Gohan so Goku sneaks up and grabs him from behind. This cel is from the part where Raditz panics and tries to tell Goku that if he lets Piccolo blast through the both of them, he'll die too. Goku just smiles and says that he'll do whatever's necessary to defeat him.

This is one of those cels where you can't help but scream "YES!" when you've won it. I couldn't believe I managed to snag this one off of ebay with little competition. The entire week this cel was up I stalked it like a crazed person, always checking to see if that "0 bids" notification turned into an actual number. To my distress one person bid on it at the very end, but when I placed my bid I was incredibly happy to see they only bumped up the starting price a few cents! (Don’t you love when that happens?) Safe to say I was quite excited when I saw that nice little green check mark at the end of the auction and not the red X of death. --Any ebayer will know what "X" I'm talking about. :P

So if you couldn't tell by now, I'm extremely excited to be adding this baby to my gallery! As a longtime Dragonball Z fan, this is one of the scenes that has been ingrained into my memory for life. Goku sacrificing himself to destroy Raditz and save the Earth was one of the best things I ever witnessed before I had double digits for my age. I love that this cel is from the moment where Raditz realizes just how far his brother is willing to go to defeat him. I think Goku's smile is the best part because he just KNOWS Raditz is ruining the bottom half of his uniform at this point haha. I can keep fangirling about this piece, so I'll just end this rant with one last thing I wanted to point out...this is my first Raditz cel! Yay! (And yes, an arm and some hair DOES count, heh.)

I've also decided to add a youtube video of the scene in which each of my pieces of production art appears. (Just a warning that spoilers for the episode will be included). This cel appears at about 1:44. I hope some of you viewers out there enjoy these clips! Also, my apologies for any videos that may have become broken without my noticing. I edited these myself and are from my own youtube account, so I'll try to make sure they're running. xP
