For a long time I assumed that the background and the cel matched. At the time I bought this cel, the practice of putting extra non-matching backgrounds with cels to make them look better was considered improper and was very rarely done. It was also fairly common to see complete setups from this show. I did not check to be sure the various pieces matched as thoroughly as I do now. The cel comes from episode five, but the background and book/foreground layers come from episode four. The screen capture of the background above shows that it was never meant to be with a cel at all. Its just showing the bamboo forest in the rain.
