Maybe, I'm just spoiled by all of the new Slayers movies, but this latest one seems significantly more derivitive and less funny than the rest. Not that it's bad, far from it; it just seems like this movie has less original material to offer. We've got another royal family feud, Lina and Naga choose opposite sides again and have another duel (though this one has a definitive winner), and so on. The last few releases gave me full on laughs where this one gives me a few chuckles (Lina's slipper slappings are one thing that never get old for me) but I didn't fall out of my chair this time. Still, you've got to love the princess in this one and the conclusion of her battle with Lina is pretty hilarious. Lina's "dragon-spooker" reputation also gets a good workout (much to her dismay) on this one as she faces off against a whole army of them. Cool stuff, but kind of a letdown in comparison to "Slayers Great". If you haven't seen that one, pick it up instead of this one.
