Its been nearly five years since I bought my first MKR opening transformation cel, and I was especially excited to see Umi for auction. She is my second favorite knight after Fuu. Unfortunately the opening sequence of her is shorter than for the other two girls, so there are fewer cels of her. On top of that, a lot of the sequence only shows her arms. I had pretty much given up on finding any cel that showed more of her body when this beauty showed up.

The background comes from a similar scene in the video game.
