I think you misread the pricing there..."members save..." $17.98, or so, not the cost. $39.98 is the actual cost.

http://www.dvdpacific.com/item.asp?ID=809273

And you can buy it on Amazon, too

http://www.amazon.com/Slayers-Comple...8601332&sr=8-1


for $34.99!! Save even more.

And season two is out in Dec.

Yes, I did indeed read the wrong figure but still, it's a lot, lot cheaper that Amazon. I should have said that the price is $22.56 instead of $17.98

If you order from DVDPacific, you become a member (or in other words, the concept of being a member is non-existent). You do not need to do anything to become a member at DVDPacific apart from just buying something from them. In addition, this discount of 43% isn't a special offer or anything, it's a standard discount they give on most items (I seem to remember it varies around 38 to 43%)

DVDPacific
Slayers, Boxset 1. $22.56, release date 21st Aug 2007.

Amazon
The Slayers - The Complete First Season. $34.99, release date 21st Aug 2007.

I guess I shouldn't trust RightStuf.com...Well the closest Anime store I know is Best Buy and their site says it was released last week (where the week before I saw it changed to october which was weird..) and under store pickup, it says unavailable. o-o

EDIT: Just came back from Best Buy and there was no sign of Slayers. o-o

The best bet you could make would be....

EBAY.com- watch out though, their somtimes a fake item
suncoast.com- their pretty handy at coming across more dificult animes
samgoodies.com- their also prety handy....


though, it would probobly be best to see stores in person and have the pre-orderd.

I have the originally released seasons 1, 2, 3....

Has anybody seen, compared the re-release clean-up version to the original DVD?? I know the DVD improved on the tapes (I remember a scene where Sword of Light was askew), but how clean is the new?

The video was cleaned up (say-about 10 to 15% improvement video wise) and the subs were redone-but other than that-if you have the originial CPM Slayers sets, there's really no need to get the re-released sets.

Slayers

I have. I watched the original, Next, Try, and one of the movies. Very good anime. Not one of my all-time favorites, but probably just below it for me.

I remember Slayers fondly and also liked the 4th and 5th series that are generally despised. I found the movies and OVAs quite pointless though. Slayers is one of the best and best remembered action/comedy TV anime in the 90s, when this combination was more frequent than today, where comedy is more often paired with romance, harem, or slice of life (or any combination thereof) and action is more likely played straight (although this often results in unintended comedy).

But this belongs in the licensed forum, and I'm sure we already have a Slayers thread there.

In college, a guy across hall in the dorm had a Slayers poster. I always wanted to talk to him about it but never did. Way back then I was still in my infancy as an anime fan though.

I'd always wanted to watch it but never have. The other day I saw a really good deal for it (like 13 dollars for 26 episodes), so I bought both seasons. Whenever I finish everything on my plate, I'll finally get a chance to watch it.

I really tend to like slower base shows, but alot of my friends have tiny attention spans, so maybe it will work out better to watch it with them. They really like "Those who hunt elves" and things of that nature. Yeah, the animation won't be amazing since it is so old but it should be a fun time none the less.

Yeah, the animation in about the first or second series wasn't very great, but the comedy and action and all -together awesomness of the show make up for the lack there of.

Yeah the real strength of this show was the ability to mix in comedy, action, and still be very serious when it was time for it. I think the animation is still nice and has aged well. The spells and effects still look nice even though the first couple seasons were made quite a while back.

Though I didn't really like the new ones that came out, overall Slayers still ranks as one of my favourites of all time.
