Synopsis

Lina, Gourry, Zelgadis, and Amelia coincidently meet up again and begin to search for the Clair Bible. During their search they run into a mysterious priest named Xelloss who seems to know a thing or two about the passages they're looking for, but he tends to get them into more trouble instead of out of it. Furthermore, they discover that the Monster race has plans of their own, and as it turns out, Lina and Company just might be a big part of their evil intentions.

Slayers Next. I had heard good reviews and I enjoyed season 1 (Slayers) so I could not wait to dive into Slayers Next and my oh my what a improvement from a pretty decent season 1.

Story- Season 1 had bad pacing, season 2 paced itself so fluently and everything flowed. It's only 26 episodes just like season 1 and everything works, there's even more comedy in this season which I thought impossible but this season was hilarious. There was better battles and more of them. It was an upgrade I have nothing bad to say about it. If I have nothing bad to say you read more

Before we start I'd like to have one thing cleared and settled... I'll be reviewing this series WITHOUT comparing it to up-2-date standards. Why? I don't think that the series deserves to be mashed because of some quality flaws, that's one... and secondly... Well, there isn't a single series that could stand up to Slayers, even today.

But let's go off from the beginning...

NEXT is a direct successor to the first SLAYERS tv series, and a much better series at that. It gives you much less fillers, more action, funny gags and tons of enjoyment almost every episode.
The story circles around an old and incredibly powerful read more

Recommendations

Magic here is the secret word, well atleast for the girls here while slayers is soo damn funny with a very good storyline, rayearth is more a serious plotline and summons magic beasts, both serie´s than can be enjoyed if u like this kind of genre from the old days
oldskool fantasy based anime´s with some simmilair style in the animation for its time.Slayers has like 5 main members in the cast , Fam& Ihrlie as a duo could easy have been sort of ´missing slayer members´ if your talking by personality ofc , it would be great to put them in a crossover!

Opening Theme

"Give A Reason" by Megumi Hayashibara (eps 1-26)
