Editorial Reviews

Lina’s on the run from a government inspector who’s ready to put her away for good. Her crime? Just being herself! The guy’s hot on her tail, but a tiny creature that actually has a tail might be Lina’s biggest problem. Pokota’s a powerful little furball, and his path of destruction is getting pinned on Lina. With so much explosive magic between them, you know things will go boom when they face off. But there’s more to Pokota than anyone knows, and if Lina’s gang can get to the bottom of his habit of blowing stuff up, they could end up with an awesome new ally.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slayers Frantic, and then...? January 17, 2012
By Tsu
Verified Purchase
(This review is for the DVDs only as I lack a Blu-Ray player.) Reviews of the two series included with this set are already available on their respective pages, so I'll get to the important thing first. If you're a fan of the old 3 season series of Slayers (Slayers, Slayers Next and Slayers Try), you should get this set. It's great to see the old gang in action again, and the return of the English voice cast is fantastic (if you're a fan of the dub.) The packaging on this 2-season set is minimal, but fine. It doesn't have the flimsy feel to it that the Slayers: Seasons 1-3 Box Set by Funimation did. For the price, this set really can't be beat. It includes both the DVDs and the Blu-Rays of Evolution-R and Revolution, and the quality is fantastic.I avoided buying the separate releases of the series due to the price and this compilation made things a lot more affordable.

As for the two seasons. If you've never seen Slayers before, I would recommend watching the original show prior to watching these two seasons. The show doesn't go very far out of its way to explain who people are or what's going on, but that's understandable. If you are a fan of the old series, prepare to be dazzled by seeing your old favorite characters in modern, shiny, colorful digital animation, but also be prepared for the extreme level of hyperactivity in the first half of the first season on this set. While some might argue that the show was slow and dragged on initially in its original first season, Slayers Evolution-R is downright frantic for the first half. The characters hardly pause between stepping on each other's sentences, they're loud, noisy, and generally more a stereotype of themselves than they used to be.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good to see old friends again February 12, 2012
There's been a lot of anime released in English over the past decade, sort of an explosion. But I will always have fond memories from the late 1990s release of The Slayers, Seasons One through Three. Lina Inverse, Gourry Gabriev, Zelgadis, Amelia Wil Tesla Seyrune, Zangalus, Syphiel, Martina, and the Mysterious Priest Xellos. They are like old friends coming to visit again. But it seems you can't go home again, at least with this new effort.

Seasons 4 and 5 actually constitute a regular full season when you put them together. If you were wondering what is new in the life of Lina and Gourry, or Zelgadis and Amelia, they have frozen in time. We don't know if they're dating, friends, or just unaging cartoons like the kids on The Simpsons. Instead, the star of this season is "Pokota", a stuffed animal. Yes, he's the animating spirit of a long-dead prince, but it's still a sock puppet. Why they thought we'd take this seriously in any remote way is beyond me. It would be like they made a fish man a starring member of Lina's adventurers. (Hmmm, that might not be a bad idea, in contrast.)

Having watched Seasons 4 and 5 through, I am re-watching the original 3 seasons now. I suppose I feel like one of those Star Wars fans who just does not get the child-targeted prequels. The Slayers has been dumbed down into a children's cartoon, and I will have to be content remembering the greatness of Lina battling Demon Dragon King Gaav, of Auntie Aqua asking Lina what her feelings are regarding Gourry, of Amelia standing atop a church steeple to the wonderment of the townfolk below, or of Zelgadis lamenting being reduced to a mere sidekick.

You can't catch lightning in a bottle, and the genie escaped on this new effort. Won't be watching it again. Instead, I will remember Lina and the others from the lyrics of Jama wa Sasenai:

Let's go to the future we thought when we were kids
To that same starry sky we used to see

4.0 out of 5 stars Something to show the ladies of your neighborhood January 21, 2012
It's been over a decade since there was a new season of "Slayers," but better late than never.

And "Slayers: Complete Seasons 4 & 5" (which is really more like one longer season split in half) is a solid fantasy-comedy anime, although it suffers from some wobbles in execution (a replica of the Sword of Light?). Not only is it fun to revisit Lina, Gourry and their colorful unruly world, but the writers introduce some clever twists and concepts along the way, while dipping into some surprisingly dark subplots.

Lina and Gourry have been busy nabbing pirates on the high seas, but they're unexpectedly interrupted by Amelia, Zelgadis, and the Ruvinagald Inspector Wizer, who promptly arrests Lina for "the crime of being Lina Inverse"... and for blowing up some magic tanks with the Dragonslave. The actual culprit is actually a sort of... flying stuffed bunny thing called Pokota, who can cast almost every spell Lina knows AND has a Sword of Light replica.

The gang ends up on the road again, pursuing Pokota and being dogged by Wizer. And after many wacky adventures, Pokota brings them to the long-lost city of Taforashia, whose people are locked in a magical sleep (courtesy of the Red Priest Rezo). Unfortunately, an evil countess and her three minions are using Taforashia's magical technology for themselves, unleashing a devastating force on the entire world.

But that isn't the end of their adventures, as Lina and Co. go off to find the Hellmaster's Jar, a magical pot that contains the soul of Rezo. Unfortunately, Xellos is also trying to get his hands on the jar, and Pokota is determined to resurrect Rezo for the sake of his people.
