SynopsisLina and Gourry travel to a seaside town named Acassi, where octopus tentacle is a delicacy. However, the octopus meat carries a curse that dooms the eater to only speak Takogo (octopus language). Amelia, Zelgadiss, and Xelloss all show up, and the main four characters (Lina, Gourry, Ameria, Zelgadiss) get cursed. The octopi enlist the power of a mazoku to get rid of the humans once and for all. The white sorceress Ruma must learn the cure to the curse from her long-lost master in order to save the town.

Characters & Voice Actors
Slayers has always been a great series to follow, with plenty of loyal fans. Its spanned three series, five movies, and two different three episode OVA series. Following, as always, the great sorceress Lina Inverse.
Premium is unique in that it is the only movie that has Gourry, Amelia, and Zelgadis; who are Lina's companions during the three series; as opposed to Naga, a friend/rival of Lina's from the OVA's. Naga does make a breif cameo, marking one of the few (if only) times Naga and the rest of Lina's friends are in the same series.
The story is a bit silly, with some town famous for its seafood having the octopus that live in the acompanying bay decide they have had enough. All in all, its not as epic as the series tend to be (with the world hanging in the balance), and not as humorous and character developing as the OVA's tend to be, but seems on Par with the other movies in the slayers franchise.
Art and Sound are typical of the Slayers media, so if you have seen other parts of the series you should generally know what to expect. A bit outdated by todays standards, but still generally clean and well animated.
As far as character goes, this movie dosn't offer much in the way of development. However you do get to see all of the characters you know and love (even if Naga's appearance is... very breif), but if this is your first piece of Slayers media you may be a bit lost.
This movie was quite enjoyable for fans, and fits in nicely between the second and final series. Overall, this is a good diversion from the series, with some quality bits of humor for a fan. If you are a first time Slayers watcher, its probably best to start with 'Slayers' the first series. read more
