Product Description

This very silly feature centers on sorceress Lina Inverse and her greatest and closest rival, Nahga the Serpent, who use their magical powers to zap anyone who annoys them. Two discount tickets take the heroines to the mist-shrouded Island of Mipross, where they take on a mysterious jellyfish cult, a sinister hypnotist, and a pickpocket.

Lina's dreams lead her into the conflict between the ancient sage, Rowdy, and the demon Joyrock, who has one of the most grating laughs in recent anime. The battle escalates into a weird war that unsuccessfully blends slapstick comedy with grisly images that recall Night of the Living Dead. The plot grows even more convoluted when Lina travels back in time to battle Joyrock before he destroyed an elfin village and absorbed their power. The outcome of their struggle changes the future and the present.

Her hot temper and inordinate love of food mark Lina as a typical anime outrageous girl, although she serves as the butt of a lot of jokes about her height and "amazingly small breasts." The rather dim, overly endowed Nahga runs around in minuscule leather outfits borrowed from Boris Vallejo paintings. It's all extremely silly--and certainly not PC.

Every reviewer is subject to certain embarrassing moments when they are solemnly reading or watching and suddenly a voice goes of in their heads that says "Yo!! This is funny!" I have spent so much time lately with the heavier anime films that it took me more than a few minutes to realize that 'Slayers' is a pure and joyous romp, full of sly and not so sly innuendoes, exaggerated action, and villains that are ridiculous rather than sublime. After puzzling over the dour messages of Akira or Evangelion this confection put together by Kazuo Yamazaki, based on the original work of Hazime Kanzaka and Rui Araizumi, is the perfect heart's ease.
Lina Inverse is a mage endowed with considerable power, who is less fortunate elsewhere (I would not mention this if it were not for the fact that it is the film's longest running joke). Playing Cordelia to Lina's Willow is Nahga, another mage, but one whose blandishments are distracting. Nahga also has a bad habit of casting spells that create magical seafood salad. These two young ladies are off to Mipross Island to frolic in the hot springs and enjoy the scenery.
Of course, all is not as wonderful as it seems. Lina is bothered by an old man who keeps interfering in her dreams, Nahga discovers the natural hot springs are fakes, and the two must conquer a string of 'toughest guys on the island.' Lina proves easily that she is really the island's toughest guy. Or, she almost does, at least until they run into Michigan J. Joyrock, a frog who also happens to be the toughest demon on the island. Now the two women and Rowdy the Sage are locked in a deadly fight with an impervious demon who has an irritating habit of going 'bwahaha.' Their only hope is to reroute the river of time itself.

This was the very first Slayers DVD I ever bought, and I wasn't disappointed, it was funny and had lots of action, even a little drama and romance. I'm not going to bother and try and explain the characters, since practically every other review does that, so all I have to say is that if you are a fan of any of these attributes in an anime, pick it up, you won't be sorry. There was only one small gripe I had, but it was small, while listening to the Japanese language with English subtitles, on scene 2 when Lina is talking to a bandit she tied up, the subtitle sort of appears and disappears in a split nanosecond before it is even able to be read, the only way I was able to read it was by pausing and going frame by frame to catch the subtitle, same thing goes with the Spanish subtitle. But enough about the con/negative; this movie has lots of pros/positives, the Japanese and English voices are all good. Lina and Naga from both languages have voices that suit them both, the time travel plot is interesting, the villian is ugly and evil, the comments about Lina being short startured, feather-brained, and small breasted crack me up, and Naga is well...very grown up in all the right places! Buy this DVD, buy it, buy it, BUY IT!!!!!

I first saw this at Blockbuster and sence it was anime, I rented it. Even if you haven't seen Slayers you will love this humorus, action flic. This is what first made me a Slayers fan.
As always the red headed and firery tempered Lina Inverse is getting herself and her rather 'obscure' partner Naga in trouble. When Lina 'broke' the leg of a pick pocketer the guys gang up on her, and use Naga was their weapon. When Lina talks a limited amount of commen sence into Naga, they kick the living daylights out of the crooks. Then while foreging through their stuff, Naga finds two discound tickets to the Island of Miprhos. Miprhos is well known for it's hot srings and that is what gains Lina and Naga's attention. But soon they learn of a devious plan going on in the Island of Miprhos.
A demon named Joyrock (who is an awsome demon at that) has been ranpaging the Island for centuries. When he attacks an Elven village, Joyrock is challenged by Rowdy, a young human who loves the elves. Rowdy carries with him, The Sword of Light, yet when he challenges Joyrock it fails. So Rowdy must wait for centuris waiting for the aid of Lina Inverse, and her dim-witted partner Naga.
I absolutly refuse to give away the ending, but it is very different. I loved it. Also the ending theme song, Midnight Blue by Magumi Hasashibara is awsome.
All in all you get almost everything in a quality anime film, humor, action, demons, and stupid side kicks. I have watched this over and over and over, and each time I enjoy it. The money is well worth it

* I tend to like really silly anime, but it turns
out that such stuff is about as hard to find as really
high-class anime, since there is a dangerously fine
line between inspired silliness and just being dumb.
I had heard the SLAYERS TV series had said inspired
silliness. As AMAZON.COM was only selling full season
collections of the SLAYERS TV series in DVD, I decided
to get SLAYERS: THE MOTION PICTURE (STMP) as a sample.
In this movie, petite sorceress Lina Inverse and her
colleague, oversexed and underclad Amazon warrior /
sorceress Nagha the Serpent take an economy boat trip
to the magic disappearing island of Mipross, so they
can enjoy the hot springs there. Of course, as would
be the case with any self-respecting magic
disappearing island, the two find that things on
Mipross are Not Quite What They Seem ...
OK, STMP is a mildly amusing bit of work, but it's
pretty much done by the numbers, "machine anime" as
I like to call it. The artwork is unremarkable, which
would not be such a problem if there were much of a
script, but the storyline is ho-hum and the humor
nothing to write home about. In particular,
I got very tired of the lame jokes about Lina being
flat-chested like the second time I got hit by one.
"Can we give this a rest, please?" But they didn't.
However, I haven't given up on SLAYERS. The concept
seems to have potential, and sometimes an idea that
works at a short length weakens considerably
when stretched out to movie length -- for example, SPACE
JAM versus any of the really good seven minute Warner
Brothers cartoons (no comparison!).
