Rei’s Breast Fetches $4,500

ayanami-rei-oppai

Ayanami Rei‘s left breast has fetched ¥403,000 at auction, probably some sort of record.

rei-breast

The item in question is an original Shinseiki Evangelion movie cell featuring the heroine’s naked torso, a desirable item indeed for Rei fans.

Topically, Rei only narrowly beat a recent fully clothed Nagato at ¥356,000, and of course Fate Testarossa managed ¥532,000, possibly a sign of the times.

Rei fans can take solace in the speculative conclusion that were her other breast in frame she might have gone for twice as much, soundly beating the upstarts.

    A big reason why this cel went for so much is because Evangelion cels are not readily available to the public. They were never released outside of certain special giveaways, and so they're extremely rare. Any Evangelion cel that shows an identifiable scene is going to be worth a lot. A fully clothed Rei Ayaname would likely go for as much, probably more if it showed her whole body.

    I've seen a cel of Rei smiling go for well over 500.000 yen on Yahoo Japan a few months ago, so this isn't even close to being a record for Evangelion cels. Some cels from Ghibli anime like Totoro or Nausicaa have been known to fetch over 1.500.000 yen ($17.000). I have a small anime cel collection myself, but most of the cels I own were in the $50 to $100 range. The most i've personally paid for an anime cel is 90.000 yen (about $1000) for a particularly nice Ruri Hoshino cel.

    fkn paranoid. collecting rare stuff is a sport for the rich. that way they show of their wealth if they present rare stuff to their friend, collecting has also the clear intention to make others jelous. i have deep dislike for any person who is collecting stuff, its posing and attentionswhoring at its finest.

    to buy a figure just to look at it because its pretty or to buy a game to play it because its fun is one thing, but collecting garbage like anime cells or buy a rare figure has only one purpose, and people fall for that attentions whores

    and if you cant have something, to put the world upside down and to make the hell freeze, to pay any prize just to get what you want is also fuking bad behavior

    True, but there's no way that's ever going to sell at that price. That particular cel's been sitting there for over half a year. The seller's probably hoping that some sucker with more money than sense bids on it. I don't think even the most fanatical Evangelion fan would be prepared to pay that kind of money. It's a good cel, but it's probably only worth about 375.000 yen tops.

    ...but unfortunately there are not much Asuka fanservice scenes in NGE :(

    If it would be the scene where Asuka is sitting naked in the bathtub or from the beginning of the movie EOE after Shinji's "assault" - they would maybe sell for such prices :)

    I wouldn't think that they would sell in Japan Rei cell with both breasts ad nipples for 8,800 USD and Asuka for 22,000 USD. I thought that Rei is much more popular in Japan. They place mostly Rei on products and she seems to be a perfect wife otakus would want.

    Here's a question. How does one identify fake cels? I feel like purchasing a number of them for decorative purposes.

    There was a nice cel of Rei Ayanami smiling that went for over 500.000 yen on Yahoo Japan a few months ago, so this is nowhere near record territory.
    Still considerably more than i'd ever pay for any cel, of course. The most i've paid for a cel thusfar is $1000 for a particularly nice cel of Ruri Hoshino from the Nadesico anime.

    They'll save money on seiyuu fees by not having her react in any way!

    Man you could pay bunch of prostitutes to cosplay a dozen Rei's and have yourself a nice Rei orgy for that kind of money. Could even have thrown in an Asuka or two.

    Yeah, look at the numbers:

    As of today, 403,000 Yen is US$4462.20.

    That's more than 2/3 of a $6,000.00 RealDoll (3-D INanimate) [I just checked RealDoll's site; they've now got elf-ear options and she-male options, for those of you who swing that way].

    Or, twenty-nine $150.00 hookers (3-D animate),

    or, forty-four $100.00 hookers (3-D animate),

    or, eighty-nine $50.00 hookers (3-D animate).

    The film-clip thing just isn't cost effective. Why not get a RealDoll and dress her up like Rei?

    You don't want to go half-assed on a purchase like that.
    Get a shemale, elf-eared realdoll, that's inspired by an anime character.

    Remember, it's not gay if it's an elf.

    The trick to make it seem real, is not to overdo it. Like showing her entire body. If just one breast is shown, or both visible trough what was supposed to be steam then it will automatically seem real.
