Way to make a come-back! :) bd
After what must have been a Decade, the good folks at FUNimation™ decided to resurect one of the greatest titles of the Anime genre.
I must say I really enjoyed seeing all my favourite Characters again, seemingly unchanged by the passage of time. Even the seyuu's (voice actors) were exactly the same as I remembered them.
Considering that this particular title was one of my childhood-favourites, I can safely say that Justice has been done to the Series, as "Slayers - Rvolution" follows the show's recepy of 3-parts Comedy, 2-parts Mayham and Destruction almost to-the-letter, which tastes GREAT btw ^_^
...trust me on that.
That is not to say that the series has no plot-line however. Far from it, "Evolution-R" again honures it's predecessor by implementing it's usual style whacky, almost incoherent antics (Lina blows-up another town for no-good-reason),
Incohensible arcane Misteries (no one yet knows what Xellos's DEAL is! "...it's a Secret *wink*"),
And of course a healthy dosage of slapstick Comedy (Goury trips on his cape ...again)
That baing said, Slayers Revolution & Evolution-R are the best sequels a Show of this calliber could have been blessed with,
...Zelgadis is still an Insensitive prick however :( read more

Although, as many are quick to point-out, the show is off to a "Slow Start" [spoiler]Which apparently involves fighting five armed Cyborgs bare-handed and foregoing an inter-Planetary War[/spoiler], somehow it manages to never seem boring, if maybe a bit easy-going at times.
To that i have to attribute the copious doses of fanservice, splendid mecha graphics, and to a lesser extent the Classical Victorian style implemented in the artwork, from balroom-dances to Lumiére's schoolgirl *ahem* I mean work-uniform, which help to give the Series a distinguished look and feel.
In the Second Chapter of the Series however, the atmosphere shifts radically as things take a turn for the worst, and thus the actual Plotline is Born. From then-on things seem increasingly bleak, as you watch what you once regarded a light-hearted-comedy unfold into Drama , also there is less Fanservice :(
The culminal point of the series leaves much to be desired, with the writhers probably exhausted form all the plot-twists in the previous chapter, they resolve to use an unprecedented number of deus-ex-machina plotpoints [spoiler]The Show itself kinda' ends with one[/spoiler], but at least they didn't forget the Fanservice this time :D
All-in all Kiddy-Grade is definetly worth watching, and not just for the Eye-Candy, but also for the morally-enriching, if poorly-presented Story, and a Universe so vast and exotic, it would make many an RPG's pale in Comparison.
...If only they hadn't gone with Gonzo :( read more
