In this prequel movie to the Slayers televison series, Lina Inverse travels to Mipross Island with her rival/traveling companion Naga the Serpent. While they originally came for the hot springs, they soon find them selves mixed up in a conspiracy involving a mazoku named Joyrock. Years ago, he killed all of the elves that inhabited the island and absorbed their power. They are soon joined by an old mage named Rowdy Gabriev, who was in love with one of the elves slaughtered and also wants to defeat Joyrock.

As someone who was a big fan of the anime show.... It was alright. It was reluctant to watch it, because to me, Slayers ain't Slayers without Lina's familiar companions (Gourry, Zelgadis, Amelia, etc.), but I decided to bite the bullet and give it a try anyway, and I was positively surprised. It was alright. Not as outstandingly amazing as the anime show, but neither particularly bad.

If you want to get into Slayers, maybe start with this instead of the anime show, because this is a prequel to the anime show.

Animation is good (peak 90s animation), voice acting is good, the story is okay, but ...

I've been a big fan of Slayers since discovering the TV series in the late '90s, which I've seen the first 3 seasons of. I always enjoyed it for how entertaining and humorous it was, a sort of diametrically opposed companion to The Record of Lodoss War, another favorite of mine growing up. Oddly enough, I have never seen any of the films or OVAs, so having decided to go back and revisit the TV series for a blast of nostalgia, I figured now was the time to check them out.

Mixed Feelings
This movie, while it does have great visuals and animation, is not that interesting story wise. Lina bumbles around for most of the movie until she stumbles upon plot but by then movie is almost over. I think pacing like this would be fine if it was in TV series, but it doesn't fit standalone movie.
Nevertheless, if you are fan of Slayers, it's a serviceable prequel that is kinda fun. If you are new to the series, please start with TV series, manga or light novels. And even if you are fan, there is better Slayers Movies and OVA's.
