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.

    I'll stop watching if Naga is added....... More

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:

    And this version sounds like something that should be on Ranma 1/2: More

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

New Megumi Hayashibara & Slayers Music Due

New Megumi Hayashibara & Slayers Revolution Music Due

I couldn’t help but notice the musical career of the great 林原めぐみ / Megumi Hayashibara is set to get a boost with release of two new titles coinciding with the onset of Slayers Revolution. Announced is “Plenty of Grit/Revolution”, the Slayers Revolution OP/ED single, due July the 23rd, and スレイヤーズ MEGUMIX / Slayers MEGUMIX, a 3 CD album due June the 25th, coming with a huge variety of extras.

A development sure to please Slayers and Megumi fans alike (if there can be said to be much difference between the two).

    There IS a difference, i like magumi allot but am not exceptionally fond of slayers :P... More

    I've got the Megumix, sadly it only contains the TV size versions of Plenty of grit and Revolution. 乙女の祈り brings back happy memories though ...... More

Slayers Revolution Manga Starts

Slayers Revolution Manga starting in Dragon Age

The long awaited release of the new Slayers anime, Slayers Revolution, after an 11 year hiatus, is heating up with the start of the manga version, being serialised in Dragon Age – see here for some more detail. Whilst it would probably be an exaggeration to say the manga adaptations of Slayers have ever been highly regarded in comparison to the excellent anime and novels, it is heartening to see Lina Inverse and company back in action after such a long gap – who can doubt that Megumi Hayashibara will reprise her role with as much gusto as ever?
