neon-genesis-evangelion-001_0.jpg

Fans fond of the anime era of angst-ridden mech pilots may be pleased at this new ranking from fans who have voted for the anime classics most “representative” of the nineties (hopefully not intended to include those which were merely popular or much loved) – though everyone else will likely be left complaining about the absence of Cowboy Bebop from the list, as usual.

    What about Record of Lodoss War, Macross, Tenchi Muyo, Patlabor?? Hell even, Project A-Ko?? There's plenty more where that came from! Outlaw Star? I mean, come on!... More

    Oh, look, another shitty Japanese list made by Japanese people who have shit taste in anime. The lack of some major series here is disturbing, to say the least. Amongst them, Dragon Ball Z should be... More


New Slayers Season Confirmed

New Slayers Season Confirmed

That there will be an additional season (13 episodes) of Slayers after the current has been officially confirmed, although it was basically planned this way (in 26 episodes) from the beginning. In fact, it might be more accurate to say they have decided not to cancel it.

Considering that Revolution wasn’t exactly a spectacular success, there may have been a slight chance of abandonment if the response was cool enough, but it seems to have picked up and be doing well enough. Via Moon Phase.

Lina the Brute

Lina the Brute

A most original, and perhaps appropriate, reworking of the Slayers Revolution OP comes to my attention, bringing to the fore her admirable wickedness and roguishness. Behold, Ultimate Brute Lina Inverse:

Slayers Beats Earthquake

Slayers Beats Earthquake

Looks likes Slayers Revolution beat the recent and rather vigourous earthquake (all the other channels there are showing reports of the earth struggling in vain to heave off the oppressive weight of Japanese cities), but otherwise its ratings have been notably abysmal, having gone from a respectable 2.5% at start to a pathetic 0.8%, at the very bottom of the pile… things are not looking good for the continuance of Lina and the gang’s adventures at present.

Perhaps the plan to sell the Slayers DVD edition at what works out at a steep ¥2,000 per episode will have to be rethought at this rate…

    Slayers was one of the first anime to introduce me into this form of entertainment, and the series practically made me cry in the end. I was actually disappointed that they didn't use the... More

    Late comments are appreciated. Slayers is such a robust series that it seems unlikely to flop, but the issue is probably more whether there will be anything after this... if it does pick up, as you... More
