In fact, that's sorta how the series Death Note works....Shikigami was bored in his world and stired up some interesting things in the human world.

There is a series of books out there called the Incarnations of Immortality. Given immortality, even gods get bored and just give up their jobs.
The mazoku do not act against creation out of boredom; they act against creation because they follow the Dark Lord of their world, whose existence reflects LoN's desire that all things be returned to her.

The Lord of Nightmares wants the worlds to exist but she also wants them to return to her... she's not exactly a 'good guy.' In the novels, LoN does not spare the world; she only leaves Lina because Phibrizo damaged her too badly to remain in the world.

You can always buy the DVDs. They have been out for years now, so I imagine the price to have dropped a fair bit.

Cheers.

The movies and OVAs are still very easy to find. The series are out of print because the owner of the rights has changed. Funimation has partially redubbed the show and the series will be re-released (starting by season 1 on july) at low price.

In the March '07 issue of the Japanese "Weekly Dragon Magazine," it states that if customers buy all three Slayers series in Japan, they will receive a new Slayers film with them. It supposedly focuses on the romance between Lina and Gourry. This new film has 2 parts. First part is 25 minutes of scenes from all 3 Slayers Series. The second part is a 2 minute feature "Meet Again, sung by Megumi Hayashibara" with Lina and Gourry running on the beach. Zelgadis, Ameria, Xellos are there too.

the 2 minute thing.


eh so weird with animation all 2007-ish and all

I remember how much I loved the hand-drawn scenes in Slayers so much, and I see they chose to retain the style in that clip. The spellcasting gets a major boost in the eye-candy department though, and that is always a good thing. I would love to see the entire animated Dragon Slave sequence in all of its fancy overpowered glory.

Cheers.

Lol they added a magic circle to the Dragon Slave. Why does all anime magic involve floaty circles with cryptic symbols now?

Make more Slayers.....Plz

2007. Release date for the first season is July 17 to be precise.

You can already pre-order at Rightstuf, who happens to have a sale on Funimations products, so you can have the first season for roughly 25 bucks if you pre-order it before may 13.

Actually it's about $21.59 with the 40% off-how do I know? I preordered it-duh. I'd be kicking myself in the nether regions if I didn't get this set as I already have the originial Software Sculptors sets of Try and Next that I fought a big bidding war on ebay to get-NOW MY SLAYERS COLLECTION WILL BE COMPLETE!!

The first season, The Slayers is due for release on July 17, 2007. Currently it seems that only Right Stuf (Slayers Season 1 DVD Set) is listing it but give it a few weeks and all the usual on-line DVD stores will be listing it as well.

I've watched Slayers so many times, I can't even count on my hands and my feet, it is defiantly one of my all time favourites.

Anyway watching Next and the ending where Phibrizzo forces Lina to cast Giga Slave, I've always thought that she lost control of it (prbly due to her saying so during the ending), but during my last watch during LoN's speech to the scooby gang, I thought could it actually be that Lina didn't loose control of the spell, but cast it perfectly instead?

The first time she cast it against Shabranidgo could the SoL filtered it so she LoN didn't take her over that time.
