Synopsis

Several months have passed (after the end of Slayers Next). The barrier put in place by the mazoku sublords has been broken, and as a result, Lina Inverse and her friends are allowed access to the outside world. There they become wrapped up in a prophecy stating that a dark lord from another dimension, Dark Star Dugradigdo, will enter their world and spread chaos.

One of the problems with multi series shows, be they anime, live action movie, or TV serial, is that every now and then the creators begin to run out of ideas, regardless of how much promise there was in the first and second series. Shows like Star Wars, Terminator, Prison Break, Heros, Zero no Tsukaima, Dragonball, Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu, School Rumble, and more besides, have all suffered from this lack of creative drive at one time or another. However, the reverse is also true, and there are a number of shows that actually get better as more series are added, Aria and Nodame Cantabile read more

If you haven't watches the other Slayers Seasons this one is not the one to start at, but it is in my opinion the best of the series. Finally you get to see other great monsters and gods and the power of destruction they have. The story was the best story of all the seasons, it had gods, monsters and the humans who exist in between them. The whole humanity part and the constant battle between gods and monsters struggle really hits home with a lot of key ideas present in the world. Best plot line from a Slayers season yet.

Of course and Slayers wouldn't read more

If you decide to watch TRY and expect the same humour value as Next, you'll only be slightly disappointed. Many people dislike Try for that reason, they are expecting something different.
Each season of slayers seems to build more on the storyline (ignoring Revolution and Evolution-R), and Try does a great job of that. It focuses on a lot of different perspectives, and the question of how to define the good guys vs. the bad guys.

The series explores the relationships between Mazoku, gods, those that are neither, and those that are both. Xellos shows his dark side, which makes me love him that much read more

In the world of entertainment in this case anime, it's usually a crime punishable by ridicule to not fall into the hive mind. One may find themselves victim of the hairy eyebrow simply for seeing something from a totally different perspective. In regards to the Slayers series, at least before Slayers Revolution and Slayers Evolution R; it was pretty much mandatory to at least think of Slayers Try as the inferior series of the franchise. Many of the complaints I heard about the series is the unfamiliar feel to its predecessors: "the comedy and silliness simply isn't the same", it's different", and other criticisms of read more
