Details on the airing of the next season of Slayers Revolution, cunningly titled Slayers Evolution-R, have been announced; we hear that the first broadcast will be 9PM on the 12th of January, 2009, on AT-X. It’s yet not clear whether other stations will carry the series.

Slayers Revolution is set to air weekly on Wednesdays, from July 2nd, 1:20AM on TV Tokyo 5. Now just to wait for the airing to commence, and thence for the downloads. Via Moonphase.
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).
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?
