To find a way in rescuing Pokota's country Taforashia which was sealed by Rezo, Lina and her group are in search for the Hellmaster's jar in what the Red Priest placed his soul after death. Zelgadis is willing to do anything to get the jar for changing back into a human while Zuuma is plotting on revenge and accomplishing assignment in killing Lina Inverse. Still a big mystery for her and the others is what Xellos is aiming for in this battle.

There's something a little bit confusing about Slayers Evolution-R, and it's something that may not be immediately obvious to most people, especially as the sequel to Slayers Revolution is pretty much what viewers would expect.

And no, it's not the cunningly maneuvered "R". You have two guesses left.

The series picks up the narrative not too long after the end of Revolution. Lina and the gang are continuing their efforts to help Pokota on his quest, and this time they're looking for something called the Hellmaster's Jar, an object which supposedly contains the soul of the red priest Rezo. Like always though, other things keep getting in ...

"Destroying the undestroyable... You truly deserve to be called "Slayers"."-Xellos

And I thought Revolution was bad...

Evolution-R started off with much potential. The battle with Zuma, Zelgadis finally confronting the truth of his body, and the part with the talking armour, and the identity of the soul trapped in it.

But for him to fight with Lina and the others in the final battle of this series was pathetic at best. First of all, Xellos would not sacrifice himself unless ordered to, and I don't care ...
