Editorial Reviews

In a time of fantasy and magic, a band of misfits stumbles from adventure to adventure - and occasionally saves the world!

Lina Inverse, a spunky sorceress with a penchant for destruction, is joined by dashingly dim swordsman Gourry, driven young Amelia, and stoic Zelgadis on a journey spanning the realms. In lands where darkness reigns, they will be light. In lands where doom threatens peace, they shall be saviors. Yes, when evil arises, Lina and her ragtag crew action for the forces of good - and if fame, fortune, and food should fall their way, even better!

They're Heroes. They're Rogues. They're just looking to make a buck. They're The Slayers!

3.0 out of 5 stars Big Intentions, Big Value August 4, 2009
Somehow in my weird and wacky anime history, I've unintentionally avoided The Slayers and its storied franchise history entirely. Despite frequent whispers of its lighthearted and enjoyable nature, it always seemed like there was something more pressing or pertinent to force The Slayers to the proverbial backburner. Fortunately Funimation has individuals like me in mind with their latest release of the property: The Slayers - The First Three Seasons collection.

Coming in at a whopping total runtime of 1725 minutes, this box set spans 12 discs packaged in a "book" of clear thin packs housed in an attractive cardboard outer slipcase.

The show wears an appropriate, if not slightly conservative TV PG (13+) rating due to animated and often silly violence over the real rough stuff such as nudity or adult language. Language options include both the original Japanese dialog track or an English dub (each in stereo) and the option of running English subtitles with either.

Special features are non-existent but considering how much actual material is presented within this set, it's quite forgivable. Speaking of the material contained, this collection lives up to its name by including the first three seasons of the show in their entirety. Each season consists of 26 episodes (4 discs apiece) and are labeled as followed: Season One: The Slayers, Season Two: Slayers Next, and Season Three: Slayers Try.

The story, in an intense effort to summarize, goes something like this: The infamous and ultra-powerful sorceress, Lina Inverse encounters the brave (but incompetent) Gourry Gabriev who, due to her lack of pubescent development, mistakes her for a foolish little girl in distress.

Slayers"...one of Japan's longest running and still continuing adventure/comedy anime series receives its first major collection with the first three seasons (a total of 78 episodes) released in one major box set. A classic series that is witty, funny and highly entertaining!

I can easily remember watching "The Slayers" when it first appeared on television in Japan, catching the premiere of the series at an anime convention and watching the main Japanese voice actress Megumi Hayashibara promoting the series in America and singing a song from the series. And then the release of the series on VHS and owning multiple copies just to get a subtitled and English dubbed version because I enjoyed the series that much.

It's hard to believe but nearly 14 years later since "The Slayers" debut as a light novel by Hajime Kanzaka and Rui Araizumi (which the duo has since released 50 light novels), the series has received a manga treatment, two OAV series, five movies, countless video games and for anime series, there have been a total of five.

With the series having had its release in the US from Software Sculptors and Central Park Media, the series is now receiving its first major collection with "The Slayers: The First Three Seasons" which consists of Season One: The Slayers (April 1995-Sept. 1995, 26 episodes), Season Two: Slayers Next (April 1996-Sept. 1996, 26 episodes) and Season Three: Slayers Try (April 1997-Sept. 1997, 26 episodes) for a total of 78 episodes included in this collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars I am the great and beautiful sorceress... June 9, 2009
Meet sorceress Lina Inverse -- she's short, flat-chested, brash, loud, eats like a barbarian, ridiculously powerful, and has a temper as hot as her fireballs.

She's also the lovable anti-heroine of "Slayers" The Complete Seasons 1-3 ," a thoroughly hilarious and warped little classic anime that spans three very different storylines. Each of the three seasons blends in plenty of fantasy spoofs and a solid little story about good vs. evil (or justice vs. evil, depending on who you ask), when our heroes aren't dressing in drag or mugging bandit gangs.

After Lina robs a bandit gang, she finds herself being pursued by a mysterious Chimera named Zelgadis and his weird minions, and a revered blind priest named Rezo who wants to protect Lina from Zelgadis... or so he says. Fortunately she has the handsome but dumb swordsman Gourry Gabriev to help her out -- except she seems to have her enemies and her allies mixed up.

And as Lina, Gourry and Zelgadis are pursued by Rezo's monstrous allies, they learn the real reason that Rezo wants the statuette -- yes, it's to unleash ultimate evil upon the world, and all that. But even after the threat seems to be over, the two of them -- plus a justice-happy princess named Amelia -- end up with a bounty on their heads, dodging a crazy mercenary, and a new enemy lurking in the city of Sairagg...

"Slayers Next" reunites the gang somewhat explosively in the city of Xoana, where Zelgadis is seeking a cure for his Chimera body.
