    I like it, it's hilarious and has some nice action scenes. It's pretty entertaining to watch, I watched a bit of it back when it was on the International Channel, and I own a bit on vhs :hs: (I bought it a long time ago :o )

    If you were ever into AD&D or Fantasy/Adventure in general, you'll have more appreciation for the series. Pretty fun anime though, one of my favorites.

    Is that the one with the two big-chested girls with Dragon Ball/Street Fighter moves?

    So far, the main character loses her ability to cast spells when she gets her period (the funniest gag in the show), her partner is a wicked swordsman but not to bright, and they let a badass Demon get resurrected and now it seems impossible to stop him.

    Not bad. :cool:

    Impossible to watch dubbed. :o

    I personally really liked the Slayers series because of the characters, but it's usually hit-or-miss for most people.

    TriShield, if you like the first season already, then you'll definitely like Slayers Next and Slayers Try. Xellos > *

    And please don't watch it dubbed. :hs:

    I can't stand watching this one dubbed, it's one of the worst dubs I've seen in awhile. Not only is the casting horrible, but the dialogue is also heavily altered.

    I'm mostly through Slayers Next, and the show is really pretty good. The first episodes of Slayers didn't really suck me in, but I'm glad I stuck with it because once you get near the end of the first series, and into Slayers Next, the show becomes addictive.
