I was planning on reviewing the Valkyria Chronicles anime this week, but things have been rather hectic and I wasn't able to finish it. I'll just have to take care of that one next week. In the meantime, let's talk about the Slayers. The Slayers is pretty well known to anime fans. It has over fifty light novels, five anime series, five films, two OVAs, video game adaptations and several manga. It's by far Kanzaka Hajime's best known and most influential work. When I initially saw the original anime, I hated it. See, my brother got several VHS's of the English dubbed version, since all read more

Slayers: The Motion Picture, also called Slayers Perfect, is a short movie that serves as a prequel to the television series that aired in 1995. The movie itself was released in July of 1995, after approximately half the television series had run its course. Do you remember that I mentioned wanting to see Slayers since I saw a trailer for one of the movies? This is the movie I was talking about.

After a misunderstanding regarding some bandits, Lina Inverse runs into Naga the Serpent, a rival of hers, and they end up going to a famous hot spring together. The hot spring itself is read more

The Slayers Motion Picure felt like a quick after-thought from the outstanding orignal "The Slayers" TV series.

Though the plot was pretty straight forward and even somewhat thought out, I felt as if everything was rushed. I have never been one who overly cares if a series spends hours developing the characters within, but if I hadn't already seen the TV series I would have no idea who these people are and why they are doing what they are doing.

The art throughout also seems a little less vibrant, using darker shades of all previous colors. Even Lina herself was less imaculate then before. read more

The first of the Slayers movies gives us a mildly amusing story with the introduction of a new main character and a lot more uniqueness to the world than the main television series was able to produce. That said, it falls flat in nearly every way and doesn’t entertain as thoroughly as the series did.

In this film Lina runs into Naga, a dark mage and Lina’s biggest rival, and the two decide to run off to a hot spring island that was once populated by elves. When they get there they face off against a myriad of mostly hilarious enemies, eventually getting to the rip-off read more
