THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Lot of talk this episode as everyone was rebuilding after the Zanaffar affair last series, with the issue of Rezo still unresolved as well. Looks like Pokota is part of the party to stay, and it seems like they've picked up one other partner for a few episodes, at least, after getting the obligatory Dragon Slave baptism.

OP and ED were okay, but neither were as good as those in Revolution (which were already just okay) in my mind.

I suppose the real development in this episode happened at the end, as Ozel has somebody with her who doesn't like Lina very much. I wonder if it's a conincidence that the OP had


Best part of the whole episode was when the empty armor gave the Naga laugh and Lina jumped back, almost instinctually. :D

Naga's voice sounds very different from before. I wonder if they took a new seiyu for her or after all those years Maria Kawamura's voice changed so much.

According to the ANN, it is indeed Kawamura that is providing the voice.

This was a decent opening episode to the season. I think, for the first time, I prefer the ending theme over the opening.

I still prefer the ending of Revolution, even the opening and ending themes are really good for this one.

Wooo Naga! Yay!
I didn't get everything since there were no subs, but overall I enjoyed the episode.
Lol @ Pokota calling Xellos 'the "Sore wa himitsu desu" nii~chan'!
Next episode's title: "Oh my head!" xD
*/incoherent babbling*

It's gonna take some time till I get used to the new OP and ED. I loved the ED of Revolution, it was the best ED of Slayers so far in my opinion, so I hope I'll start liking Evolution-R's songs at least half as much. =D

the highlight of the episode that I understood for the most part. xD
that and the obligatory Dragon Slave of course.

both OP and ED, were, both surprisingly dull to listen to, even if its MEGUMI. odd. I've liked every single OP and ED of all the TV series yet this one just doesn't do it.

Liked both the OP and ED.

Yay for more Slayers! Man Naga in a TV series. It just feels wrong. But I'm pretty sure they won't really show her. I mean that would spoil some of the fun secrets they've been having in this series. (like figuring out she is indeed Amelia's older sister)

I'm glad people are subbing this ^^ got me worried there for a second.

I hope Naga sticks around and Terriermon goes away. Although turning her into a suit of armor is just wrong, she's lost her boing boing appeal.

Naga Naga Naga!

This is going to be a fun season, if only to see what happens with her.

i'm with you.. they were not as enjoyable as the ones before..
but i liked how they showed the big bosses from the other seasons..
i wonder if there is some relation?

aren't there anyone willing to do sun subs with HQ for the anime??

There's a VIVA fansub version for episodes 1-3 on VEOH (and other streaming sites)
but as far as I know, there is no downloadable version of it (PM me if you know)

That was an interesting first episode. Appreicated the mini-recap at the beginning (I hadn't seen the previous season since March, ack) and the living armor is amusing. Seems like there's going to be a fair bit of silliness before they get on to the business about the jar, though :|

How disappointing they didn't get Kelly Manison back for Naga in the dub. She absolutely nailed the character in ADV's release of the movies and OVAs. I wonder if Funimation even thought to try to get her back.

I must wonder why Lina was able to recognize Naga's voice while Amelia was not, though. You'd think she'd know it much better.

They lent a little heavily on the "Naga is Amelia's sister" open-secret jokes with Amelia wonder if Lina knew a parent or sibling of the living armor.

First minutes: Blaa blaa, repeating things we found out about in the previous season. I guess you had to have some amount of recap. Luckily we didn't get too many flasbacks either.

But then. That suit of armor...that attitude, that LAUGH. IT IS NAGA! WOOOOOOOOT *Fire siren*
This is already starting to look promising.

Well crap. I think I just spoilered myself by figuring out what Xellos was really up to. No way to be sure till I watch the rest of the series now, lol

Oh well, might be fun to find out I'm wrong.

Haha yup it's certainly Naga! I do wonder why it takes so long for Lina to see this :D.
Looks great for the last season.

By the way, I think this is the worst OP in the Slayers series :D. Good ED though.

She knows it, but does not want to admit it :-) Naga is her worst nightmare :D

I don't think it's bad. It's just not in the style of previous series.
