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.

the box set outer insert is actually dual sided. the inside artwork is very nice and i like they made that extra effort to do that. shows love for the fans indeed. the special features are the same, the second disc of each season has both clean openings and ending themes, as well as trailers for other shows. so hopefully this helps you.
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. The best attributes of all the characters- Lina's passion for black magic, Gourry's memory lapses, Amelia's vows for justice- are made extreme and nearly obnoxious. That being said, I would still recommend this series. Once the actual plot comes into play, the behavior of the characters calms down back into their normal levels of craziness. The plot is enjoyable, especially for fans of the original show due to returning plot threads and characters, and continues into Revolution.
As for the dub cast, Lina, Gourry, Zel and Amelia are all returning. Xellos, Sylphiel, and all minor characters are not. Zel and Amelia sound absolutely identical to how they did 10 years ago when the original Slayers series were dubbed, but Lina and Gourry's actors don't quite have the same handle on their old roles. Gourry usually sounds higher pitched and a bit more squeaky and panicky than he used to. Lina, in the introductions and first episode, sounds extremely squeaky and hyper (moreso than she did originally!) but regains her old Lina voice partway through the show. As I watched it I got more accustomed to their "new" voices, but it may be a little off-putting initially for fans of the original dub. With the exception of Prince Philionel (as far as I know), the entire Japanese cast returns for this if you're more interested in the original dialog.
If you love Slayers- get this set. It can't be beat for the price and it's wonderful to see the gang in action again. If you've never seen Slayers- check out the original and see if it's your thing.
I you enjoyed the first two seasons of Slayers then you'll enjoy these two seasons just as much (maybe not quite as much as Next.)
