Synopsis

Lina and Gourry travel to a seaside town named Acassi, where octopus tentacle is a delicacy. However, the octopus meat carries a curse that dooms the eater to only speak Takogo (octopus language). Amelia, Zelgadiss, and Xelloss all show up, and the main four characters (Lina, Gourry, Ameria, Zelgadiss) get cursed. The octopi enlist the power of a mazoku to get rid of the humans once and for all. The white sorceress Ruma must learn the cure to the curse from her long-lost master in order to save the town.

Slayers has always been a great series to follow, with plenty of loyal fans. Its spanned three series, five movies, and two different three episode OVA series. Following, as always, the great sorceress Lina Inverse.

Premium is unique in that it is the only movie that has Gourry, Amelia, and Zelgadis; who are Lina's companions during the three series; as opposed to Naga, a friend/rival of Lina's from the OVA's. Naga does make a breif cameo, marking one of the few (if only) times Naga and the rest of Lina's friends are in the same series.

The story is a bit silly, with some town famous for ...

Slayers Premium is a huge step back in quality from Slayers and Slayers Next, I'm obviously glad it's no longer than 32 minutes, but it was 32 minutes that were quite painful. First, let me say that I watch Slayers in english dub (yes, yes, I know, heretic.) It's one of the few series I prefer the dub over sub. And Slayers Premium changed the voice actors...

It's dreadful, the Lina in Prenium sucks, it doesn't fit the character at all and even then most of the cast seem to be acting out of character for no apparent reason. The art is also stepped down, as ...

This is THE black sheep of the Slayers franchise. It's not interesting, it's not clever, it's not funny, it's not aesthetically appealing, and one hopes that it's not canon. Returning characters are sloppy mockeries of themselves, and very little besides that. The plot is more or less on par with a particularly weak mid-season comedy episode from any of the Slayers series. The 'takogo' gags are stupid, obnoxious, and repetitive. The art is not good, and the facial expressions manage to look like some kind of emoji vomit even in the context of the over-the-top Slayers universe.

If you know and ...
