Editorial Reviews

In the annals of fantasy there is o mage so feared, no sorcerer so powerful, as the fiery redhead Lina Inverse. And when the exceptionally well-endowed Naga the Serpent accompaniejs her, the forces of evil will find there's nowhere to hide!

"Slayers: Great" is my favorite of the films.

These, for the most part (except for Premium) take place prior to the main series, although Lina's exact age isn't revealed (15 in the trilogy).
Darcy Pryciak
It's the kind of movie you can watch over and over and always laugh at the same jokes, always root for the hero, because it's that well done.

Ask, and you shall receive. Here are the ADV titles for all five films...

#1 THE MOTION PICTURE

#2 GREAT

#3 PREMIUM

#4 RETURN

#5 GORGEOUS

They are in slim packs, and looks like they have no extras like they did when originally released. So definitely do not double dip, or sell off the old ones to buy these. Other than that, you get all US released movies in one shot at a reasonable price.

I Had not yet puchased any of the movies/specials and when this set came out I was delighted! Lets first start by saying this set includes: Slayers The Motion Picture, Slayers Return, Slayers Great, Slayers Gorgeous, and Slayers Premium. All Movies are in Widescreen Presentation Except for Slayers Great. Slayers The Motion Picture, is the Essential Anime Disc release so it comes with commentary. Slayers Premium Also has a behind the scenes interview and Commentary. The other DVDs only come with it's trailer and ADV previews.

My only regret in this set is that while this box includes most of the Movies, it still did not come with Slayers Excellent, and The book of Spells DVD. I don't understand why it didnt come with Excellent, but The Movies it did include are great to watch! I reccomend this if you have bought the series, but havent gotten around to purchasing any of the Movies yet, just remember to purchase Excellent and Book of Spells to complete your Collection!

My favorite Slayers is the television series, but the OVA/movies are mighty fine entertainment in and of themselves with no larger stories or arcs to follow; just a string of hilarious episodic mayhem and slapstick comedy. Slayers is among my favorite anime series' and Lina is a fantasy anime icon that all should know well. This is a nice little set that compiles the 5 films of this classic anime series which take place before the first season of the television show. My only complaint is that the awesome OVA's "Excellent" and "Book of Spells" aren't included. Personally, those are my favorites of the non-television releases and with them, this set would've gotten 5 stars easily. On to the review. "Slayers: The Motion Picture" is a really fun flick and a decent introduction to Slayers. It features a younger Lina Inverse, sorcery genius and master of the dreaded Dragon Slave technique (which she often has used to lay waste to entire cities) coming across co-collaberator/rival sorceress Naga the Serpent and the excessive fanservice that always accompanies her. As usual with the two of them, chaos ensues. The story features the best villain in all of Slayers anime lore in the demon Joyrock and is the longest and most epic of this bunch. "Slayers: Great" is my favorite of the films. The plot revolves around feuding father and son golem makers. It features first a duel between the two (anti) heroines with hilarious results and then a duel between Lina and Naga golems with even more hilarious results. "Slayers: Premium" is the odd duck of the series since it features the cast of the television series and is a very short 30 minutes.Read more ›

I'm a long-time fan of Slayers and would recommend the three main series "Slayers" "Slayers Next" and "Slayers Try" because they are phenomonal in creation, story, and design. These OVAs, with the exception of The Motion Picture, are not as great, and do not use the original voice of Lina for younger Lina.

These, for the most part (except for Premium) take place prior to the main series, although Lina's exact age isn't revealed (15 in the trilogy). They are fun, zany, and Lina and Naga get into all sorts of scrapes.

Premium and The Motion Picture are the best of the set...and anything with Ghourry is good.
