I couldn't believe it when I saw this cel for auction on Yahoo Japan. I had this dragon on my wish list for at least five years. I had never seen him in any gallery and figured that since the sequence was so short and he was not a major (or even a minor) character that no cel of him survived.

I liked the idea of the Western style knight fighting to slay the Eastern style dragon. It’s an interesting mixture of cultures that turned out well. The battle occurs during the song “In the Sea”. In this cel, he is just turning his head to breathe out fire.
