Filmstrip of Fate Testarossa's Rare Smile from Nanoha Movie Fetch $2,000

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha The Movie First came out on January 23. At the theatres they're giving away five-frame filmstrips for dedicated fans who've seen the movie three times.

As usual, many of those filmstrips already came out on Internet auctions and one of them, with Fate Testarossa showing her rare smile, is fetching some incredible price, even higher than the filmstrip of Rei Ayanami that sold at 150,000 yen in 2008.

Fate is smiling at her familiar Arf, wearing Nanoha's white bow in her hair after they've exchanged them. The highest bid is 183,000 yen (about $2,028) as of 15:00 Feb. 1, 2010.

Another filmstrip showing the parting scene of Nanoha and Fate. The auction for this one is already closed but it fetched above 100,000 yen (about $1,108).

Two of the five frames show Fate.

And the rest shows Nanoha.

The filmstrips are cut out from the reel used for test screening. No two are the same and it's pure luck which scene with which character you'll get.
