small ito screencap

I was really happy to see this cel for sale. There are not many nice shots of Doctor Ito in the show. Most of the time he is yelling or frowning. In this cel, he has more of a concerned look on his face. He had gotten into an argument with Gally, and she had run off. She has just returned and told him that she has signed up to be a hunter-warrior. He looks at her, welcomes her back and starts to smile. All is forgotten. You can tell how much she means to him.
