The biggest attraction at Anime Expo is always the legendary Exhibit Hall. Always growing larger every year, this year's was no exception, gathering in over 80 anime exhibitors and distributors covering the hundreds upon hundreds of square feet hall space with stacks of anime items for sale. Numerous fans have exclaimed how huge the hall was, how they got lost, and especially how their feet and wallets hurt and they still haven't seen everything yet!

This year, Linus Lam Network News went the extra mile and interviewed various cel exhibitors on what anime cel was their favorite, meaning that special one they always carry around but never sell. From simple and short to meaningful and well-put thoughts, now you know even the exhibitors are fans themselves. You saw it here, folks!
"This is a cool cel because it's from one of my favorite shows called X, but this scene is from the pilot film X^2, which makes it even more rare. It's my favorite character as well, and the character designer is Mr. Yuuki, and that makes it even more special." - Anime Wink
"This cel has such special meaning for me. It's a gorgeous cel from Kimagure Orange Road with matching background. This is a scene from the Mushroom episode, where they all went looking for the magic mushroom and they bit it and they would fall in love with the person whom they were with." - Nichibei Anime Club
"It's special because no one else can get it. We're the only guys who have it, and we're the best!" - Usagi's House
"The cel that I like is this fine Mamoru-chan (from Sailor Moon). They're very,very hard to find, and I love it because it's so rare." - Ninja Death Graphics
"This is my prized cel because it's awesome!" - Kuri Anime
