3.0 out of 5 stars Dissappointing ending to a great series. June 3 2004
I can't tell you how much I was looking forward to this one. The old tv gang meets Naga? Sweet! Unfortunately, the result instead of a full-length epic adventure incorporating everything there is to love about Slayers into one huge production we get one television episodes worth of what amounts to little more than a series of cameos. Shame, shame, shame. It's an entertaining episode, but it feels as though it's missing the 25 other episodes of a great Slayers season. It's nuthin' but a freakin' teaser! A bad way to end an all-time great anime series. I was going to give this DVD 2 stars before I decided to watch it again with commentary by the legendary Crispin Freeman and the delightful Cynthia Martinez. Their commentary was so hilarious (more entertaining than the actual feature, in fact) that I had to bump up the rating a star for the inclusion of such a great special feature. Between voicing Lina Inverse and Puni Puni Poemy, Cynthia Martinez has become a truly great voice actress. Unfortunately, this is her last turn as Lina for now. This DVD is only for the Slayers completist as it features very little of what made it such an enjoyable series to begin with. If you are unfamiliar with Slayers, go get a season of the tv series or one of the OVA's (Slayers Great, Excellent, or the Motion Picture are highly recommended) first.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, but could have been great May 23 2004
I had very mixed feelings about the DVD. While the mini-movie was cute and clever, and it was good to see the TV gang back together, it was also far too short in my opinion. Just as we really start to enjoy the story and the characters, it's winding down. The VA work is great, I didn't even mind the fact that some of the voices changed from the series (Although I think I would have if Crispin Freeman had not done Zel, and if they had not used Cynthia Martinez from the OVA's as Lina..I liked her as much as Lisa Ortiez) But because of its length, and the speed the story had to take, normally I would have given it only 3 stars.
However, both the interview with Crispin Freeman and the Actors commentary saved the DVD for me. Mr. Freeman is a fantastic interview subject, and his insight on the series and on Zel's character was thoughtful, interesting, and terribly funny. Also, his commentary with Miss Martinez was hilarious, I dare say even funnier than the movie itself, and had me laughing so hard I was tearing up.
These factors elevate it to four stars.

By P. Krug
First, a summery of the plot: In a story that I belive takes place between Slayers NEXT and Slayers TRY, Lina and Gourry stop by a seaside village where they soon discover there's a curse; anyone who eats octopus becomes cursed to speak nothing but the mystical octopi language. (Giberish, basically.) They don't find this out until after Gourry has eaten it and become cursed. Zelgadis and Amelia stop by and soon they too fall under the curse. So Lina and her friends must go to the octopi's undersea lair to defeat the evil octopi and save the town. Xelloss also stops by to check up on them.
This was a lot of fun to watch, with all the Slayers humor intact. The giberish is really funny to hear and there is even some C.G.I. as well. Because of the presence of Gourry, Zelgadis, Amelia and Xelloss, (and the absence of Nahga,) this feels more like a Slayers T.V. episode than an O.A.V. The extras are fantasic. We have an interview with Cripen Freeman (voice of Zelgadis) and commentary with Crispen and Cynthia Martinez (the ADV voice-actor for Lina Inverse).
O.K., now for some minor complaints. What keeps this from getting five stars is, first and foremost, most of the returning characters have new voice actors in the English version. I've gotten used to Ms. Martinez as Lina by now and I kind of figured she'd be doing the character here again, and thankfully they were able to get Mr. Freeman to return as Zelgadis, but as for the rest of the cast, you wonder why they couldn't get Eric Stuart, Veronica Taylor and David Moo to return as Gourry, Amelia, and Xelloss. I mean, ADV was able to get the origonal voice actors to return for the YOU'RE UNDER ARREST mini-specials and the movie, why not here? Well, O.K.
