Top 15 Anime Representative of the 90s


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.

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.

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…
