Finally, at long last, we get to see how Lina Inverse and Nahga The White Serpant first met. (In SLAYERS: THE MOTION PICTURE, where Nahga made her first appearence, Lina and Nahga already knew each other from sometime back, and we were never told how they first came to meet.) We begin in the present, when Nahga destroys the inn Lina's staying at, and destroys the meal she was about to eat as well. This triggers a flashback to when Lina first met Nahga, who was determined to get a reputation as the world most powerful sorceress by defeating Lina. Later the two of them are hired by some village people to kill a vampire. (Yes, this is the only time in all of the Slayers anime where a vampire makes an appearence.)
Next, Lina is hired by a rich man to escort his teenage daughter Serena (spoken for by veteran actor Tiffany Grant) to their vacation villa. The problem is that Serena has a personality and laugh quite simular to Nahga, she splurges like crazy (she even refuses to wear the same set of clothing more than once and buys lots of suveners which she then expects Lina to carry,) and she slows them down greatly. Finally Lina gets sick of it so she actually hires some guys to kidnap Serena. But then Serena gets kidnapped by some different bandits, so Lina must save her with the help of Nahga.
Finally we get to see Lina's last adventure with Nahga ever.Read more ›
Overall, watching Excellent, you get the definite feeling that the series has run its course. The jokes, animation, and voice acting are all pretty much the same as previous installments, but it's gotten to the point where nothing in Slayers is really all that different from what we've seen before.
As far as the Slayers OVA's are concerned this one is one of the better ones. The animation and voice acting are pretty bad though. The voice of Lina is not the same as in the TV series. If you're a Slayers fan this one may disappoint you. It's definitely not high quality at all, but it's better than most of the OVA's out there.

I like getting to see more of Naga and Lina interact together, but overall these OVAs were a little weaker than the series itself. Read morePublished on May 11, 2013 by Kat
This slayers is pretty funny at some points. First episode is all about the two sorceresses meeting each other and getting tricked into going into some ruins. Read morePublished on May 15, 2010 by C. Klein
