Slayers Movie Collection (3 disc set)

The Slayers Movie Collection features all five movies of this extremely popular anime series on 3 DVD’s and is the definitive box set for this series. The series follows Lina Inverse, a thief and sorceress who is drawn into a strange and ambilevous struggle of good versus evil as she follows the clues from dreams in an attempt to go back into time and make things right. Unfortunately for our heroine, things go from bad to worse as she faces a variety of adversaries in attempt to use her powers to set things right.

 

Although originally produced in 1995, the popularity behind the Slayers is the disturbingly cute Lina that not only has access to a variety of ancient magics but also her “girl power” attitude that goes hand-in-hand with anyone that she encounters. From dragons to wizards, this sword and sorcery epic definitely features all your anime clichés from over the top acting to entertaining stories that can be only considered brilliant. Highly Recommended

 

With high quality video and audio, a few special features thrown in here and there, this 3-disc boxed set is not only great for those that love the anime genre but also for those that wish a taste for the more subtle aspects of anime.

 

Slayers: The Motion Picture (1995)

Enveloped in mists, the island of Mipross has been shrouded in mystery since the dawn of time! Now, two mighty sorceresses will attempt to pierce the veil of secrecy and silence that has hidden the horrible truth about Mipross from the eyes of men for hundreds of years!

 

Slayers: Return (1996)

The indomitable Lina Inverse and the inexplicable Naga the Serpent are in trouble up to their eyebrows again!

 

Slayers: Great (1997)

All Laia Einburg wants for her golem-making father Galia and her equally ambitious brother Huey is to end a long running feud. But her world gets turned upside down when short-stature Lina Inverse and overly endowed Naga the Serpent save Laia from a rampaging golem.

 

Slayers: Gorgeous (1998)

Lina Inverse and her sidekick Naga the Serpent are happily enjoying lunch when the entire town ducks under cover before an invasion of Marlene Culvert and her legion of bloodthirsty dragons.

 

Slayers: Premium (2001)

Lina Inverse and Gourry Gabriev have teamed up again along with their friends from the original Slayers TV series to save an indulgent village from the wrath of an underwater nemesis.
