Both Dragon Ball and Sailor moon are getting reboots. When will Slayers get a reboot? If it does who should do it and what should the slayers reboot be like? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HySCRz6Atf4
It will never happen.
Fun fact in the original slayers novel a fish monster was order to rape lina.
I'm surprise Slayers don"t get more love. I think it should be up there with dbz and sailor moon.
Slayers doesn't need a reboot. It's still really damn good even by today's standards. I say that as a huge moefag who generally dislikes any anime pre 2000.
Dragon Ball Kai considered a reboot.
Implying slayers won"t be heavily improved with more panties shots and lewdness.
Slayers is shit and childish. And the plot lack focus.
>t. It's still really damn good even by today's standards.
Implying slayers shit animation holds up.
>more panties shots
Most female characters in Slayers don"t wear skirts or dresses.
Slayers Reboot that sticks closely to the novels.
Large budget series done by A-1 pictures or Kyoani or someone.
Who the best character in slayers?
Sure, but there's plenty there already.
Clearly you have bad taste.
The animation is good enough in comparison to Shaft powerpoints, so it's good enough.
This. I also want to see Greater Beast Zelas Metallium animated.
So slayers with 20 % more rape and attempted rape? I'm ok with this.
If they rebooted it and excluded Megumi Hayashibara I would flip my shit.
Nothing will happen though.
I don"t remember a lot upskirt shots in slayers. fan services and lewdness yes. But not a lot of pantie shots.
Dragon ball is getting another reboot? Even after Kai?
>So slayers with 20 % more rape and attempted rape?
This and DBZ are probably the only english dubs i actually like.
Was lina inverse a pure virgin /a/ ?
Do you want to experience Revolution an Evolution-R again, OP? Because I don't.
Also, how much material is left in the novels?
It was an abridged version at best.
What are you 5? How hard is it to paste someone's name in a wikipedia search box.
The slayers books were dark comedies. It's Rape levels still no where near A song of fire and ices aka game of thrones. But trust me the rapes are there.
>Also, how much material is left in the novels?
The original show doesn't sync up with the novels all that much and diverges more and more as it goes.
>Dragon ball is getting another reboot? Even after Kai?
That would not surprise. Dragon ball is still a major cash cow.
Fuck no. I just need my animated Sherra.
>Do you want to experience Revolution an Evolution-R again, OP? Because I don't.
Despite how much I loved slayers I just couldn't sit through those two new seasons. Dropped it after two episodes.
The show show ignored all rapes. Even the implied rapes by the bandits.
7 light novels, and a lot of the special spinoff light novels to be adapted into filler episodes.
>it has been 10 years since you watched Slayers
>Dropped it after two episodes.
Why is that?
I rewatched it last year on VHS .
No it hasn't, I rewatched it last year.
>It has been 10 years since you FIRST watched slayers
wtf is vhs?
I need to see what the spoiler for /a/ looks like. Sorry.
It's been 14 years. I first watched it in February 2000.
Seriously? Fuck off
It's like a DVD, only a lot bigger.
Fuck no! I don't any dubbed anime.
Does no one even realize that Slayers Revolution existed? That ended back in 09.. shit that was 4 years ago already? Time really flies..
Slayers revolution doesn't exist.
>Not buying dubbed anime on VHS because you were once ignorant
>Not watching the dub years later for nostalgia
Because it was terrible.
It's not really that funny man, and just in case you are being serious, if you don't know what a word means you can type define:[theword] into google.
For me it's been 17 years.
you have to have a strong fan base in order to get a reboot, anon.
>you were once ignorant
Not I. My local gas station was run by a guy that had been into fan subbing since the 80's. When I first started watching anime in the early 90's it was from renting copied fan sub tapes from their little video store.
Kids now days really don"t know what VHS tapes are now? Cow boybeop was right!
>but there's plenty there already.
Lina is so lewd!
Lina a kawaii
She was a special kind of moe. I don't even know how to classify it.
Try your best to classify it anyways.
Maybe too powerful so she didn't understand common-sense things kawaii?
I don't know. I'm inebriated and only watched the first 10 episodes months ago. I'm a huge faggot. But I definitely remember her being kawaii and moe.
And then there was that karaoke episode. Or OVA. Or whatever that was.
So is Slayers good by Fantasy genre's standards or is it good by anime's standards?
In the novel a fish monster attempted to rape lina. You tell me.
I'm not talking about the novels, I'm talking about the anime.
If I showed this to people who weren't really into anime but were into fantasy (LoTR, GoT, LoZ, etc), do you think they would like it?
Might want to ask /tg/. I think it's good though. Good fantasy and good anime, that is.
Yes fantasy people would like it. It's like D&D when people have fun with the game by fucking around instead taking it super seriously all the time.
>player I cast Magic missile
DM: But there nothing to attack
>Player: I am attacking the Darkness
It's not good in any respect. Like how shitty gag comedians will get a laugh and become famous.
It was just entertaining.
If they were looking for a comedy, sure. The actual story in slayers was just tedious.
>You will never get to take Lina virginity....
It's shit compared to Attack on titan and Fushgi yuugi.
>Better than Slayers
U fookin wot, m8?
Fushigi yuugi actually kept all the rapes and attempted rape in the plot. Fushugi yuugi even had lets rape Miaka to take virginity story arch.
She wearing a skirt? I thought those were sweat pants she wearing.
She wears pants with a thong over top and a skirt over top that. Sometimes I feel like she wasn't sure on how to actually put her clothes on.
When you're super powerful, learning how to put on clothes properly is unnecessary, hence Lina is moe.
>She wears pants with a thong over top and a skirt over top that.
So she a superhero?
So otherwords My waifu Lina is saving herself for me?
Why do people assume Lina is a virgin? If anything she probably willing to let you give her anal if you give her attention long enough.
I always had a fantasy of knocking her up just for i can drink her breasts milk.
No Prince Faggot this time, please.
Of course, anon. Of course.
Your not the only one mate.
I just finished NEXT yesterday.I cried.
Also am I the only one that missed the casting animation from S1? Dem glove creases.
Naga a shit, her milk would be sour.
If Lina and her got into a Farting contest who would win and why?
You saying Lina breasts milk would taster sweeter?
Was that your first time watching?
I'm saying Amelia's would be sweetest.
It was nine for me, Watashi.
Yeah that's what I was trying to say.
Lina's farts would be louder because she has more bucket capacity. Naga's farting would smell worse in the end because she has a higher pool capacity.
Have you started TRY yet?
Not yet I'm gonna watch Return first but a bunch of shit from this season came out today so I've been watching that.
I wish more of this shit was translated.
I just watched it all for the first time last year.
Is this official art?
>I wish more of this shit was translated.
/a/ can you please translate this please?
It will never happen. I loved the series but it just wasn't popular enough for it to get a reboot now.
>Is this official art?
I wish the quality was better. Doujins before the mid-00s usually had pretty poor quality by today's standards.
I don't think it even needs a reboot. I enjoy it as it is. The OVAs were more fun to watch and get into.
I did a girl who acted and looked just like her.
>I did a girl who acted and looked just like her.
Bullshit. Post Pics of her on here for proof!
I would love to however the breakup was ugly and I only kept the NSFW images. Also, 3DPD on /a/.
Don't get too excited anon, it wasn't the real Lina as she had one too many dimensions.
Dat official art!!!!
Bullshit /a/ don't mind cosplayers. Just spoiler alert it. We must know if you are telling the truth or not!
These were the two best filler episodes.
I love it when slayers do hot springs and bikini beaches episodes
Go fucking kill yourself.
Wha the most lewd slayers episode and can someone post panties shots in slayers?
>Still the best Slayers song and best movie.
and then of course the opening to season 2
So much they actually used it again in Slayers Evolution-R. For the last episode...
You fucked him?
The one cosplaying as Lina is a her. Bit of a bag face now that I look back on it. I was young and very stupid.
Damn! How hold was this jailbait suppose to be? Does she count as Loli?
Amelia was 13 in the original series, then a year older for each series after that.
>Left audio cuts after a little bit
If Lina was a giant robot, the show would be called Space Runaway Ideon.
Are you fucking kidding me? That's for eating my spoiler text 4chan X.
How old is consider too old to be loli?
because I'm stupid.
You know one thing I didn't like about Slayers.
The fact that Lina is basically a max level wizard in dnd terms, and her friends are all probably around there, but very rarely can they actually fight the damn monsters.
I don't know how many /tg/ people are in here, but I hated and loved how accurate the fighting for Gods and epic level creatures got handled. The part would ether completely curve stop it, or it would curve stomp you.
It was kind of annoying to know that they couldn't really do a whole lot most of the time.
and this is how her robot would look like.
What did Lina have to roll at the end of NEXT so that the universe wasn't destroyed AND so she got her body back?
Zelgadis is dead sexy.
Post the nsfw pictures of her as proof you actually fucked her anon.
>You can see his Banana in the hammock
This was my wallpaper for quite a long time, 8 years ago.
Fine, I will crossboard it on a NSFW board to avoid being banned while providing you the link.
Proof is here.
Slayers shouldn't get a reboot. Hajime Kanzaka already said he considers his original Novels and the Anime to be two separate but equal canons.
If anything, the anime should just continue how its been going, just improve itself. Stay closer to the original novel/manga source material, but find new ways to incorporate Amelia/Zelgadis into the story. Which is really the one major strength the anime has going for it over the Novels (since Amelia and Zelgadis are missing from many of the Novels).
If anything in the Slayers universe should get a reboot, it should be Lost Universe. Because the original show got a bad break in its first run.
What do Lina's sweaty gloves smell like?
Shit, that didn't work.
Like sweaty gloves.
Well you got laid that's what matter right? Also does she at least sound like lina?
>From TG favorite pen and paper RPG Ironclaw which parodied Slayers by making it more foxy.
Do you even know how to crossboard?
A Natural 20.
I'm pretty sure she cheated.
Probably some sort of Epic level spell that the rules for are retarded.
or just casted wish and or miracle.
I think Gourry rolled a 20 on diplomacy
I first watched Slayers in 1997. I had to rent it from a store and later buy it on VHS. And back then the subs cost more than the dubs.
Not as bad as the other picture but she's still a horseface.
One of my favorite things about the show was that Lina and co generally never felt too overpowered to me. They clearly have difficulty with a lot of battles and lose or resort to running from time to time. More enjoyable then them simply plowing though everything with no effort.
Does anyone have any Slayers merch? I was in Japan recently and I managed to find everything BUT Slayers stuff I was a little disappointed. I mean hell I found Tetsudou Musume stuff before Slayers.
What's with the ring? You weren't engaged to her, were you?
If you really fucked when you are young.... How old was this when you taken this?
Why is Lina spreading her butt cheeks?
Post the better version here:
I only browse /a/ and I forget how to crossboard link.
She sound like her if she really tried. She was far more bitchy than Lina was.
I agree, her body was much better than her face was.
Check the thread here for proof of a pussy.
Kinda but without a proper ring.
She was 18. She is 24 now.
Her name is Ashley.
Now, the second one is disgusting.
>I would love to however the breakup was ugly and I only kept the NSFW images
How bad was the break up my friend? My ex thrown me in front of a semi truck when i got mad at for getting knocked up by a random guy at a party. I wish i was making that up to.....
An exploding Natural 20 that lasted for at least 10 rolls
She didn't try to kill me physically, just spiritually and emotionally.
I agree but most of the images are too large to be uploaded to 4chan.
Trust me, I am disgusted I found her attractive.
>She was 18. She is 24 now.
Are you sure you are not covering your ass by saying she was 18? Serious question. I don"t want to get in trouble for looking at her pics. My PO officer checks my browser history.
>just spiritually and emotionally.
Hey at least you did not almost bleed out from your ribs stabbing your lungs. I get over breaks offs a lot easier after that.
But this dude ex is like a real life Anime slut.
I was 17 and she was 18. The first picture she was about 20 the second 18.
I'm sorry anon,.
Physical wounds heal faster than emotional ones. You still got fucked up though.
It wouldn't work.
Dragon Ball and Sailor Moon are both classic series with a lot of flaws. Slayers isn't. Very few shows have come out that approach Next in quality, and fewer surpass it. Simply put, there's no room for improvement.
In fact, as we saw with Revolution and Evolution-R, the limitations from the period original Slayers was made gave it a much more beautiful hand drawn art style that couldn't be replicated today.
God I'm getting old.
>You still got fucked up though.
You know what worst? She still wanted me to pay child support and be the bastard father after almost killing me. xD She a woman she got off attempted murder easily.
Nah, we're all just getting younger in reverse.
Did you do the papa test? Prove you're not the father.
The artstyle could be replicated, but it would take a lot of time, effort, and money. The new, clean artstyle that Revolution and Evolution-R had were fine for me, but the show itself just fell flat.
WHy did you break her hymen if you could have popped her cherry with your penis?
It was an accident, we were getting frisky and I fingered her a little to hard. I officially took her virginity later.
Not At first. I was still recovering from memory lost from getting hit by a fucking semi truck. lol I bet she sells the story rights to fucking Lifetime channel or something in the future.
>It was an accident, we were getting frisky and I fingered her a little to hard
>I officially took her virginity later.
What it like having sex with a virgin? I would close my eyes and pretend it was tomoko.
>she casts that spell only once in the anime
That's what I love about Slayers. There's literally 300+ spells used over the course of the series. Though a lot of them do the same thing....
This is why I believe in 3DPD wholeheartedly now.
Like I said, it just happened.
It is nothing like the doujins. They cry and don't enjoy it at all. It takes a few sessions before they enjoy it.
Dat Loli ass......
lina is best
There is not enough Amelia images in the world.
>It is nothing like the doujins.
Next thing you gonna tell me is virgins are not tighter and they will become mindbreak ones you fuck them hard enough.
I have been blessed in Slayers merch so far in my life.
My favorite teacher in high school was a veteran and going to visit friends in Japan over some break so I gave him money to buy me the two Slayers artbooks.
I can't even imagine how funny it looked for this crusty old white army dude going in some japanimation nerd store looking for these while otaku tittered in the background.
Plus I was one of his favorite students as well so he got me the guide book for the Slayers Return movie.
Also lucked out in getting the best thing featuring Lina possible.
The doujins get it wrong with a virgin enjoying sex. After a few sessions though, they are basically mindbroken for the D. She was pretty tight, not the tightest I've had though.
Man all those pics do is make me realize how long it's been since the 90's...
So you took a redhead virginity and someone got hit by a semi truck. So there still hope for to have a interesting life?
Short answer, no.
Well, did you try becoming the little girl?
Oh I like that.
Kai wasnt a reboot. It was just a shortened version of the original anime.
Reboot implies completely redone from scratch.
Did you ever got to butt fuck her? If so compare her ass tightness to her virgin pussy.
Her ass was tighter but not as enjoyable since she never did figure out how to clean properly before hand.
>wanting a slayers reboot
>after the shitfest that was revolution
Sometimes I feel like the only person that liked Try, rented that series like 3 times
This fan voice actress voice is perfect for Lina!
Try had the best first episode out of all the other seasons. I wish the rest of the series had lived up to it.
What's wrong with Lisa Ortiz? Does she not want to do it anymore?
Try was great, gonna rewatch everything along with captain tylor and lost universe
I don't want a reboot. I want a continuation.
I want to see Sherra, Dynast, Luke, Milina, Memphis, Zelas, and Dolphin animated.
I want to actually terrifying Mazoku.
I want a new season that follows the novels.
I want a PTSD Lina ending
I want CLOSURE.
>I want a PTSD Lina ending
Did you actually got raped in the novel? I know her and other girls have close calls with getting raped.
Damn that's awesome. I spent ages looking through animation cel stores and art books I don't know how your teacher managed to find them but I guess that was a different time, it's all IS, K-on, and SnK as far as the eye can see now.
>Did you actually got raped in the novel?
>I want to see Sherra, Dynast, Luke, Milina, Memphis, Zelas, and Dolphin animated.
Dude, what is your obsession with rape?
>Dude, what is your obsession with rape?
Fifty. why don"t you have a obsession with rape?
It wasn't Lina's roll that mattered, it was Gourry's. Gourry had to roll multiple strength tests and probably a fortitude save once he got into the Sea of Chaos, then he had to score a natural 20 on diplomacy combined with an awesome improv'd speech and the use of all his CHR buffing abilities.
I'm pretty sure Lina got a critical failure on her Giga Slave roll, actually, then the DM rolled to have LoN possess her.
Let's see, the "rest" of the series. . .
Zel lock picking, furry engineer rigging an almost-nuke, run away train, hilarious couples shrine, wonderland filler, even more Xelloss being an evil dickbag than in Next, emo dragon tears, Darkstar, more light weapons.
Yeah naw it was pretty great all over.
The only part I would call lame was the whole way they defeated Valgaav at the end; I wasn't even mad over the egg since Next already set a precedent for that sort of thing.
For semi anon.
What exactly was Gourry doing before he ran into Lina? Did they ever say? 'Cause whatever it was, he pretty much dropped it the second he met her.
But anyway, no. No one is actually raped in the novels. One of her friends dies and she's forced to kill another friend with her own hands. Now go watch Elfen Lied again
That's not Zelas. She's a one-time-only character from Slayers Special.
The novels are not berserk or game of thrones. But rape was clearly very common the Slayers universe. To put it lightly. Threats of rape and attempt happened all the time.
Those were the times...
Mercenary, level grinding on bandits, staying the hell away from what was left of his messed up family.
Probably banging all the chicks jumping on his wandering mercenary dick and drinking heavily to numb the pain.
Is this a new epic troll or something? To just talk about rape in Slayers threads?
my brother of excellent taste
I wish there was larger Slayers art.
I redid that to 1080 but can't find if for the life of me.
Did the novels ever dive into his family problems?
A lot of the rape references did got censored in the novel translation. But trust me it's there.
We never have Slayers thread and the fact that rape is being discussed kills me a little inside.
I can't recall much of it, it's been a while. Hell I think the family problems were first from interviews and shit.
Fucker is totally faking the idiot act though. Goddamn.
How large are we talking?
1080+ so I could use it as wallpapers.
>and what should the slayers reboot be like?
Hayashibara voices Lina again. Oh, and more OP's by her.
You misunderstand me. I loved all the little jokes and filler (Except the Wonderland and Jar collecting ones. They were pretty meh for Slayers) and the DS weapons were pretty badass, but storywise it didn't really stack up to the other series.
Now let's just drop it forever.
>Her name is Ashley.
What her last name?
In the first movie, you learn that he is descended from a long time ancestor Rowdy Gabriev. They never explicitly say it, but it is assumed that his ancestor marries the elf girl that he protected in that movie, implying Gourry also has part elf ancestry to him. But the point is, there's little to go on when it comes to knowing his backstory beyond this. Apparently he took the sword of light when he left his homeland (Elmekia) and is on bad terms with his family.
Long story short, before meeting Lina Inverse, Gourry runs into Lina's father. Who indirectly advised him to stop wandering and 'find meaning with his life'. And shortly thereafter, he meets Lina Inverse herself. Deciding to become her protector. The rest you see in the Anime/Novels.
As for Gourry being 'stupid', many people have theorized he's just playing dumb. He seems to have the Homer Simpson complex. As he will suddenly become quite smart about certain things or completely remember certain people....but then become completely clueless about most other things. But for the most part, he's just ignorant when it is convenient to the story (when they need to provide comedic exposition for the viewer).
Hmm yeah you won't find a lot bigger than 1080 and it'll usually be fanart.
I use this as a background since I loved seeing that shit get what he had coming.
I'm not going to tell you, she may have been a bitch but no one deserves what 4chan is capable of.
So what are the rape references in the English translation?
If Slayers was redone today, Lina would be naked every 5 mins to meet the loli demand.
Saved, thanks anon.
I also enjoyed that scene.
Than ask the Semi truck guy to post pics of his ex and her name. She kinda deserves it.
High INT, low WIS. Gourry could be one of the best magic users in the world because of it, he's just too unfocused to be able to do so. He's TECHNICALLY smart, but his smarts are all in random areas like some kind of idiot savant.
That is up to him, not me.
glad to help
Rowdy doesn't hook-up with the elf girl. Kanzaka said so. Humans age 5 times faster than Elves so by the time he was in his 20s, the Elf girl was still a child.
>If Slayers was redone today
Slayers Revolution/R-Evo already showed what Slayers would be like if 'done today'. Amelia's tits giggling every time she was on screen, Zelgadis drawn with a reef on his face, Lina drawn with a moe indentation under her chin, Gourry with sparkly hair and a cute little plush toy added in to try and sell merchandise.
People complained and hopefully, if we even get more seasons after how hard the show failed, they'll fix the designs and return to following the novels better. Which Rev/R-Evo didn't COMPLETELY ignore the novels. But it was more like 30% novel content and 70% WTF.
I bet she fucked you over big time. I don"t know who got it worst. You or the dude who got hit by a semi. I would be turn off 3Ds to.
Why are you guys hating on Xellos? I don't remember him doing anything bad. He was a pretty cool dude in my books.
I still date occasionally but it has only been tiny asian girls. I would bet semi guy doesn't care much for 3D anymore.
I don't hate him, it was a satisfying scene though.
Don't forget that run/jump check. There's no way that wasn't a 20.
Delete this shit and get the fuck out.
>I will never get a girl mad enough to throw me in front of a truck..... Cause i am a virgin....
I would bet he is very careful as crosswalks now.
Nigga wat slayers did that first, along with 75% 90s anime
>Amelia's tits giggling every time she was on screen
The only good part of the recent Slayers seasons.
It's a real shame that the community for Slayers is rather stagnant. Nothing gets translated these days.
Araizumi keeps publishing Slayers related material each Comiket but nobody touches those.
Neither Slayers nor DBZ should be up there with Sailor Moon.
Wasn't some dude translating the final novels?
Anyone have a pic of Lina if she was drawn by Kyoani?
Looks like some of the doujins are being translated. Slowly.
But he's my favorite and sometimes people just like to see the ones they love suffer, y'know?
The Amelia/Zelgadis doujins got translated which is all I care about. it took 15 years, but someone finally did it.
That's great. Means I should start buying and scanning things again.
Dat 80's Lina
I prefer the dub, especially Lina, Amelia and Crispin Freeman's Zelgadis, but I still like Megumi Hayashibara as Lina too.
I think you're a decent human being and I agree with you.
this fucking copypasta every god damn slayers thread. No.
I think you're both insane
I accidentally bought the final tape of Next as a dub, I got maybe 10 minutes into the first episode before I turned it off in disgust.
Not even the culmination of the storyline could get me to sit through the dub.
Hey, at least the LinaxZel shipper hasn't posted yet.
There are worse things in this fandom. . .
David Moo is the strongest
That's your problem. The final tape of next is full of serious episodes and outside of Lina/Zel/Amelia the cast is pretty bad, made worse by having to play it straightfaced.
The fillers dubbed? Awesome.
You should rewatch the dub from the very beginning, and with an open mind. It's not good per se, but I do prefer it. It's got a charm, and, although I don't know why, I feel like the VAs really had fun with it, like they were having a blast in the recording studio. I don't get that impression from modern dubs.
The only terrible main character is Sylphiel's voice early on. That women did not give a shit.
>You must wait 1 second before posting an image reply.
Now that just doesn't even make sense.
But it's not as bad as that one awful westerner on pixiv who keeps posting the nastiest LinaXNaga trash.
Let's talk fanfiction for a moment. Did Slayers Hamlet ever finish? What about Wrath of Invincar or whatever.
Moo defenders plz an hero
At first I didn't like his voice but it grew on me. It was definitely a memorable voice.
You'll never get anywhere discussing dubs about a show from before the year 2004. Because that's the 'nostalgia' years then dubbing was popular and most people outside Japan had better access to dubbed anime. So even if these people prefer subbed anime now, they will still look back at many of those shows, Slayers, Ranma, Cowboy Bebop, Eva, Kenshin, Dragon Ball, Pokemon, whatever, as fond memories.
I'm getting too old for 4chan.
To be honest, I started watching the whole series about a year or so ago, and I thought the dub was pretty decent. Then again, the voice actors were from other shows like Pokemon, so that might have been a factor for my liking the dub. However, it was pretty obvious when the dubbers were awful, like Sylpheel.
I'm >>100584850 this guy. I watched Slayers a year ago. I watched the first few episodes alternating between the two until I settled on the dub. I later rewatched the show subtitled and, somehow, I still preferred the dub for the reasons I gave before. It's not necessarily nostalgia. Maybe it's more to do with the period, back when English VAs dubbing anime was fairly novel, and their performances either sucked or they went all out. Now the whole business is tired and monotonous, and doesn't have that spark of newness or experimentation. I mean, this was when dubbing over songs was common place. It was an exciting, interesting time. And I think the Slayers English cast really tried their best, for what it's worth. That's why I like it.
I like this image, but it really bothers me that Lina isn't in her OVA/movie outfit.
Well all I'm saying is I watched the show 17 years ago in 1997. And vastly preferred the original voices to the dubbed ones. And had to go to great lengths (and spend a ton more money) to get the series with the original voices rather than dubbed.
Back then the company releasing the show would have 1 subbed VHS for every 3-5 dubbed tape. And sell the subbed tape for $10 more than the dubbed ones. it was like a godsent when the DVDs came out with dual audio a few years later....even if they were $100+ dollars a season.
>tfw you will never be a great defender of justice.
What's the point, /a/?
At least you weren't forced to endure the laserdisc years like Grumpy Ji-san and people like that. I hear those were the most expensive and limited.
Mirin dat Lina, not bad I gotta say.
that naga can go and stay go tho
is he confirmed dead?
Only the wilderness truly knows.
I almost called you an old man, then remembered I first watched the show in '99.
>not using 4chan x
hahaha everyone laugh at him
If only they'd make that Diablo style Slayers ARPG where you could play a Seyruun Monk.....
happens to me quite often with 4chanx
Then you have no idea what you're doing.
You know, that honestly has to be my favorite outfit for her. Just kinda seems to have the more "rugged adventurer" feel without going overboard with it, you know?
Anyone else still have hundreds of tapes and LDs?
I'd slay 'ers if you know what I mean.
Used to. Had them in my parent's storage locker, then I found out recently the donated them to Goodwill.
Amelia started my fetish for short girls with huge tits.
And its still going strong.
I got a scat fetish from those Slayers doujins.
You know which ones.
What city? It just might be time to go thrifting.
>Gaav as a cheerleader
>all your opinions are invalid
Yes, you sly dog.
>I got a scat fetish from those Slayers doujins.
you better now be trolling me
I demand to see this
Only really true with the segment of the population that got their introduction via Toonami. The period from the late '80s until 2000 or so was also the golden age of fansub tape-trading. To the extent that it's true of the older fans, it's mostly with regard to Star Blazers and Robotech, not anything later. For the most part, those of us who were fans in the '90s were painfully aware of how bad the dubs generally were.
Most of the Toonami shows had above average dubs for the era, and dubbing standards industry-wide improved as a result.
Cowboy Bebop is in a whole other category, though. That is one of the few truly great English dubs. The only place where the English version isn't at least on par with the Japanese is the secondary cast (and that's despite how good the Japanese main cast is). That's fact, not nostalgia.
>That's fact, not nostalgia.
Nothing you said is fact because its all based on your opinion. Plenty of people will disagree with you (aka their opinion). For example, I think the original version of Cowboy Bebop was better across the board because the dub took too many liberties. Adding accents and changing parts of the script. As well as the lackluster secondary voices, which you pointed out. Because a dub is the sum of its parts. You can't claim a dub is good by just focusing on the main characters. Which the main characters in the Japanese were just as good (or better) than the English anyway. Someone like Megumi Hayashibara (the Japanese voice for Lina Inverse by the way) or Kouichi Yamadera (who also played Togusa in Ghost in the Shell) were even better than people like Steve Blum and Wendee Lee in my opinion.
When you combine all the voice actors together, the secondary voices and the main cast, the Japanese still wins out. But again, it all comes down to opinion. And usually based on the version you heard first and grew up listening to.
I've seen a bunch of complaints here about Revolution and Evolution-R. I'm kinda thankful for them. If it wasn't for them, I'd probably have never heard about Slayers.
I remember reading about it in this shitty little anime/manga monthly news pamphlet when I was in highschool. Watched Revolution, loved it. Wanted more, so I went and bought Next, then Try, then the first season. Loved all of it. Wish I knew about it sooner though.
Whether or not it's a great dub is an objective fact. Opinions on the truth of the statement can disagree, but that just means that someone is right and someone is wrong. It's still a question of fact.
Note, though, that I never said it was "better than the original," only that it is "one of the few truly great English dubs"
I will completely agree on the Japanese version being better overall for the same reasons you mention, however, the English main cast did spectacular work that could be favorably compared to the Japanese (and the Japanese cast being composed of absolute LEGENDS -- you neglected to mention Norio Motherfucking Wakamoto as Vicious, BTW -- is what I was alluding to when I said "despite how good the Japanese main cast is"). I should have specified that I meant the voice work itself, and not the dub script, because that is obviously an issue in places.
Slayers HD remaster blu ray when?
Don't worry, it'll be announced once Slayers Final is greenlit during the 20 year anniversary celebration.
shit if ranma 1/2 can get a remaster, Slayers can't be too far behind r-right?
You gotta believe!
Pokota killed Slayers
Wasn't there a new Slayers series maybe one or two years ago already? Not a reboot, but it still counts.
slayers commited suicide
Suicide implies that the series killed itself. Clearly it was murdered by JC Staff.
Pokota was analogous to Jar Jar Binks. Neither killed their series. An overall failing of script, bad flow, ignoring what previously was good about the series and ignoring the fanbase hurt both Slayers and Star Wars. Not one specific character.
Pokota was merely a miniature Lina Inverse clone tied to a bad story.
I'd kill for somebody to fix all the shitty dub deliveries.
Then just get an entirely new fucker to handle Xellos.
So Idol outfits were as ridiulous then as they are now
The sailor outfit episode was one of the better parts of Try
Fun fact: Japan always seems to be about 10 years behind the west in fads. SO their dresses, music and etc seem to
For example, in the late 80s and most of the 90s, Electronica and 'discotech' was popular in Japan. And Japan has been going through a 'grunge' and 'metal' fad for the last 10 years. And of course, their fashion sense is, as I said, as if they are shopping at America and Europe's thirft stores.
You will all think this is odd, but I loved Xellos's dub voice. It was so damn faggy that I felt it was really perfect for him.
No I am not saying that Xellos doesn't amuse me, but that I feel he most certainly loves the cock.
His voice being awful in the dub was my main reason to hate him. They should have had the inspector be the more permanent member and have Pokota show up from time to time
Pokota shares his seiyuu with Naruto. Automatically ruining Evolution and Revolution.
JCStaff killed Slayers and taking minor plot points from the earlier novels
Honestly, the fact that Akio Ōtsuka is in every fucking anime ever has made me kind of get annoyed by his voice. So when he was in both Slayers Revolution and Hajime no Ippo The New Challenger at the same time, I couldn't enjoy either of his roles much. He just feels like one of the few anime seiyuu who overacts WAY too much.
Which makes little sense since he seems to take such a casual approach when he plays someone like Snake in Metal Gear Solid. Why can't he take that calm approach in his anime roles...?
Amelia masturbates with a stone vibrator.
>implying there aren't spells in the Slayers universe made to give you orgasms
I seem to recall his voice being a broken, gravelly, nasally whine, like he was going through puberty.
Only two other voices I rank as bad as that which was kid Zenki's dub voice and Suupuushan's japanese voice
You know its true Zelgadis. And its your fault.
Where do all the restaurants they eat at get this high quality food? Not once in their medieval themed world have they come across a restaurant that only serves mush.

A six hour old Slayers thread with 463 posts.
Today was a good day.
I started posting in this thread when I did a search for boards.4chan.org/a/sailor and I happen to have a Slayers folder. When I ran out of pictures I downloaded some Google image searches (scripts and addons turn them all into links I can mass download).
Is there anymore of them switching clothes?
I want to see a back view of Lina in that outfit.
486 replies. Good haul for a old series
What episode is this?
One of the OVA.
I prefer the novels much more. If there is still some really old fans out there that still visit the jurnal site (you know which), you'd have seen there was some decent reviewer too, surprisingly enough.
Wish the place was on any other platform than that journal site.
He appears i first season>
Still better than your moeshit>>100573905
You want fanservice go watch Louie the rune soldier. Is Slayer with fanservice
Lina is my waifu !
