Joy - Sakura - Episode 40 
Cel, Douga, and Screenshot
Sakura and the Sakura from the Dream
Sakura to Yume no Naka no Sakura 
Air Date:  May 11, 1999
Animation Director:  Hasebe Atsushi
The Scene: Sakura, "No, this is my first time. Demo -" But it was just like her dream. All of them.

Mei Lin, "But what?" 
Sakura, "It's nothing. Let's go!"

Anxious to avoid the issue, she sprinted ahead and pushed open the heavy glass door. (Cel) The carpet in the tower lobby was soft and plush. It was getting on toward evening now, and golden light of the setting sun streamed through the glass walls, suffusing everything with a glow. So light. So soft.

Why?: I loved the angle of the shot, and I knew what episode it was from so I figured I would give it a shot. And I am very glad I did. The colors are lovely and the lines are crisp and clean.

About the Cel: Cel is in excellent condition. The layers are all stuck however, the lines are in very, very good condition. Another interesting thing about this is there are two A11 layers that make up the doors/windows. I have not ascertained why they were made most likely a correction of some sort, but because they are stuck I cannot see why. Also with this set I was also able to score the B12 sketch as well.
