Slayers Revolution Collection
sword and sorcery anime production is pretty damn cool and stars the
extremely cute Lina Inverse, a red haired sorceress who is on the
run from the powers that be for a crime that she did not commit... or
DID SHE? Not really but I was hoping to build the suspense!
tale begins with Lina exploring (what's new) for fortune and glory
with her warrior partner Gourry. Unfortunately things go sour when they
meet an inspector called Wizer. We soon discover that apparently Lina
has destroyed a neighbouring kingdom's stock of animal weapons. These
weapons are like super powered animals but as we get to the crux of the
matter, it appears that Pokota, an evil rabbit-like creature is behind
this dastardly act.
only one thing to do, Lina goes on the run in order to clear her name
and find Pokota but thankfully she is once again joined by Gourry and
some new recruits, namely Princess Amelia and her protector Zelgadis, a
giant stone golem. Another interesting protagonist in the series is
Zellos, a mysterious mage whose alignment is yet to be known. Needless
to say, he proves to be an annoyance to Lina but sometimes he does help.
Without spoiling the story, this incarnation of the Slayers contains all
13 episodes and features that traditional over the top and witty
storylines that made the previous series so damn enjoyable. With action,
adventure, drama and intrigue, the comedic aspect of this series is
actually very amusing, thanks to those clichéd anime characters and
Another highlight of this collection is the video quality that looks
quite vibrant and colourful on DVD that boasts glorious widescreen and a
Dolby Digital 5.1 track to really make the characters larger than life.
There are even some explosive scenes in the series that BOOM through the
surround sound system.
conclusion, Slayers Revolution Collection is a fun and over the
top adventure that I thoroughly enjoyed from the first few minutes to
the end of this 325 minute saga. Any more excitement and I would need an
adult diaper! This is what anime is all about!
