The name says it all on this one. This is probably the best non-TV-series Slayers release to come out so far. It's at least on par with the best of them: "Slayers the Motion Picture", "Book of Spells", and "Slayers Great" and a great introduction to those who haven't yet experienced the insanity and fun of this incredible anime series. This DVD compiles three separate episodes of Lina and Naga adventures, including the first meeting of the two in the first story, "Labyrinth". This is the strongest of the three and is worth the price of the whole DVD by itself. This one pits Lina and Naga first against each other, and then against a vampire. Lina's rant about the pretentious-sounding speech of vampires is an absolute riot. Second, we have "A Frightening Future" in which Lina is hired as a bodyguard for a spoiled (and well-endowed) rich girl whose laugh is just a little bit too much like Naga's for Lina to stand. Naga shows up (of course) to drive Lina even further to the brink of insanity and some brilliant S&M humor ensues. Lastly, there is the weakest and most over-the-top of the three stories, "Lina-Chan's Lovely Makeover Operation" which pits Lina and an extremely over-zealous formal wear fanatic against Naga and a snotty punk girl who designs unorthodox clothing. This one had a lot of potential, but fails to live up to it. Still, this is one Slayers DVD you must have. The only thing missing is a Dragon-Slave. Some may argue that a Slayers episode without a Dragon-Slave is like a day without sunshine, but I think we've all seen our fair share by now, haven't we? Anyhow, we also get a couple of tasty extras in this edition in the form of two interviews: one with the adorable Cynthia Martinez (who gives her best performance ever as Lina Inverse on this DVD), and another with Kelly Manison, Naga's english voice. All in all, a great collection for both the Slayers newcomer and the veteran otaku.

After three feature-length movies, we get back to short, half-hour O.A.V. episodes.
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.

Done as the second Slayers OVA, Slayers Excellent is a 3-episode series takes Lina Inverse back to her earliest chapter to when she first meets up with Naga the Serpent(her eternal rival). So, this takes place in the same set of stories as the Slayers Special titles like the first four Slayers movies, intended as a prequel taking place before all the other Slayers material, or a "prequel of prequels" as it were.

Lina originally encounters Naga who torches an entire inn just to declare her superiority over Lina. Naga continues to stalk Lina, which leads the two thought of being in cahoots by some villagers after Naga destroys a pub Lina was eating in. The unlikely dup of sorceresses are sentenced by the village to look for some missing citizens in an abandoned ruins, which turns out to be ruled by a vampire lord that Lina and Naga were intended to be sacrifices for. Of course the Dracula-wannabe is defeated by Lina, but not without Naga causing the entire roof to fall in on them. The next chapter has Lina being a bodyguard for a spoiled rich girl on a trip to her summer home, but sells her out to bandits after having enough of her ego. Naga interferes, and causes the debutante brat and her kidnappers to start a new fashion trend. This leads into the last episode where Lina is hired by a fashion designer that is at war with "trendy" designer that has adopted Naga's flashy philosophy, which escalates into the two sides having a giant robot battle with mechanized golems!

The OVA series is collected into a single DVD through ADV Films, although no re-release has been issued since the company restructured into separate branches. The dub is pretty fair, although it is different from the one performed in the TV series and features a totally different cast. The quality of animation is just as good as the other theatrical releases and OVAs, although it looks like they didn't give as much effort to that what was done in prior productions.
