If you’re a fan of Netto or Meiru, then you’re gonna like my posts over the next few weeks. If you are a fan of some of the best-looking animation from the EXE series, then you’re gonna like my posts over the next few weeks. If you said “I’m not” to either of the preceding statements, then you’re gonna be sick of my posts over the next few weeks.
Nabbed off of Rinkya earlier this month, I was able to win 2 sets of key animation images - technically genga drafts - from Axess Ep. 44. However, they are just copies like other settei batches I own, not the actual pencil drawings. I was holding out hope they were the legit originals when I bid, but I was pretty sure they weren’t. That instinct was correct. Still, I’ve hardly come across many of these in-show drafts in settei auctions, let alone a whole episode’s worth. So, while there’s not a lot of character variety - not nearly as much Yuriko as I was hoping - this batch of around 100 genga have a ton of nice Netto and Meiru sketches.
The little boxes of text on each one is just the character’s name, if you were curious. Although, thanks to the laughable Google Translate glitch that “translates” eyes for some reason, as you can see below, Meiru is clearly also known as “the surface corporate.”
More to come over the next few weeks, along with a separate batch that had a few more standard settei character sheets from the first season of EXE that are new to me (or better quality from years ago), and some N1 Grand Prix scenery.
