Why is Lina Inverse such a bitch?
>>
>>101610309
Umm, she's not. I love her with everything that I am. Slayers is such an underrated series. One of the best out there.
>>
her tits are fine why does every character in the show say they're small sheesh i fuckin hate slyers
>>
>>101610764
I don't think it's underrated, just old.
>>
>>101610809
Nothing in the least wrong with older series. Back then most series that came out was over the top good, now days they just push out whatever shit they can produce the fastest.
>>
>>101610795
I love her gigantic little breasts.
>>
>>101610880
>>101610795
I'd rather fuck Amelia all day
>>
>>101610864
No, nothing wrong, but people aren't going to talk about an old show every 20-30 minutes anymore.
>>
>>101610795
because Naga makes everyone else tits small
>>
>>101611010
I'd fuck both of them, because I have a big heart.
>>
What kind of bitch though? Greedy bitch? Destructive bitch?
>>
The whole show is basically /tg/: The Anime. She acts like a pretty typical player character, frankly.

Man someone on /tg/ summed up her character pretty well. "How to do a munchkin right" I think? Something like that.

Slayers is good shit, man.

Seriously the worse LN ending I've ever experienced. Other wise top tier.

There was just way too much left out, it's not even funny.
>>
>>101616272
How is it the worst LN ending?
It's way better than running forever like shounenshit. The point was made pretty clear: they can't kill all the Mazoku and that it would take hundreds or thousands of years to kill all of them. It's not something they are capable of. They just saw to their personal business, rather than playing the heroes of humanity
>>
>>101616433
>Kill Ruby 2-3x
>Kill Hellmaster
>Beat the shit out of Dynast
>Get Garv killed
>All this in less than 5 years

You're full of it. This is by a single person mainly, a girl who operates on dumping her mana bar and having to recharge for a day or two.

If she teamed up with her older sister it would be over before Lina becomes a Christmas cake.
>>
>>101616526
>Lina becomes a Christmas cake
Now I want it.
>>
>>101616526
You're forgetting the fact that the only legit win of theirs was beating Dynast (and not even killing him by the way) and killing a Ruby Shard in the first book (even then, Ruby let Lina have a shot, out of curiosity and Rezo was interfering with him too).

Hellmaster got killed by Lord of Nightmares, Dynast was beaten only with the help of that armor that traps you, Garv beat the shit out of them (they actually lost here totally),

The last piece of Shabranigdu they killed required one of the talismans to be broken.

It's not like they can track down Mazoku anyway. It's THEM who were followed by the monster race and not the other way around.
>>
>>101616526
>Lina
>ever teaming up with Luna
>laughing elfman.jpg

>Kill Ruby 2-3x
They killed a shard, and each time the host had wanted to die, and sacrificing valuable artifacts in the process
>Kill Hellmaster
Shit would have been a TPK if the LON didn't show up
>Dynast
>can't find the translated novels anywhere ;_;
>Garv
Killed by Hellmaster

They are just an extremely lucky party of adventurers who got their hands on some artifacts. All Greater Ass Zelas needs to do is give the word and Xellos can kill the entire party before she'd even have time to use Ragna Blade
>>
>>101617100
>>101617144

You guys keep chalking things up to luck, yet there's no indication Lina's luck was going to run out. All that shit is just plot armor whether you acknowledge it or not.

>Hurrr Xellos can just kill them all instantly bcuz astral plane

This applied to every single mother fucker mazoku out there to begin with. All they had to do was attack Lina when she was sleeping.

Guess what? They never did. Know why? Because the plot demanded so.

Stop acting like Slayers is some perfect series that doesn't have numerous immersion breaking elements to it just like any other LN and using that as an excuse as to why the series ended when it did.

It's a fact Slayers could have kept continuing and people still would have ate it up, it just DIDN'T because the author got bored or some shit.
>>
>>101617144
Luna can easily team up with Lina any time she wanted to. All you need is to give her a good incentive. Lina has no say because anything Luna wants, Luna gets.
>>
>>101617339
This.

>>101617339
>plot armor
If you paid attention to the story and explanations that were made in the very beginning, you wouldn't be generalizing this so much.

Let's see: one of the in-universe rules that's explained in the very first book by that monster that was killed by Gourry with his sword of light the very first time is that Mazoku feed on negative emotions of humans. They don't like giving them easy deaths, they like torturing, because that replenishes their energy and strengthens them.

But even ignoring the fact. Do you remember how the whole fight against Phibrizzo happened in the novel? He killed everyone but Lina and made her cast Giga Slave, then killed her instantaneously (she had eaten breakfast from Sairaag and the entire city was part of Phibrizzo, so he used that piece of food/his body and killed her from inside the moment she finished casting GS). Where's the plot armor here? He did exactly what you're asking for.

It also was made a clear point that Mazoku CAN'T kill a human directly from the astral plane, because that would like saying "I'm too weak to kill a mere human in a fight and I have to resort to trickery". It can kill them or weaken them to a huge extent. If casting a spell not of your own kills them, then this shit would do as well.

Gaav was the only one capable of doing that, because he was fused with a human, so he wasn't bond by Mazoku rules, but for that exact reason that he was fused with a human, he fought a "honest, humane" battle instead.
>>
>>101617339
People just don't like it when others give opinions that can shatter their suspense of disbelief, no matter how legitimate, because they already formed their own self-insert fantasies or fanfiction based upon the existing logic of the series itself.

Which is why they were dumb enough in this thread to try and defend the series logic by using meta knowledge, when in fact, it would just ruin the continuity harder because many things only 'made sense' due to no one bringing up the point to begin with.
>>
>>101617557
>>101617670

Except he's dead wrong. It's like one of those kids who watch series that aren't that abundant in depth, but more abundant in "fun" and convince themselves that there's nothing but "fun" to that show. It's simpler to call everything plot armor than pay attention to all the details that were explained beforehand.
>>
What are your favorite moments from Slayers?

My three are from Next:

Amelia prays to Lord Shabriniggitydiggity to save Seiruun when Lina uses Dragon Slave.

Hellmaster controls Gourry and fights the party at full potential

The Cleric casts Dragon Slave

All your excuses just tells me that there was no reason Lina needed to give up the fight then. There's enough loop holes to win the war against Mazoku with ease. Just gather up every ally she ever made, and beg her sister.

The fact that you are implying Slayers has depth is already an indication of how low your reading level is already.
>>
>>101617861
Wow, you really fit this description actually. >>101617729

>>implying resorting to trickery to killing Lina Inverse makes you weak given her resume
It doesn't matter. She's still a human. They are only allowed to fight in the astral plane when they're fighting against Gods or Knights of Ceifeed. It's a fucking in-universe rule explained in one of the very first books.

>>implying resorting to trickery to killing Luna makes you weak
Nope, Luna is actually the Knight of Ceifeed, so they have to battle her straight on if anything. She's still Xellos-level at her best, so people like Dynast, Deep Sea Dolphin and Xellos' master are way above her league.
>>implying the entire hellmaster gambit isn't a kind of trickery
It is, but he possessed the wit and the wish to do so. He's THE retainer of Shabranigdu, the most important and powerful servant of his. Others (except the other 4) are minions. Besides, he still didn't kill her from the astral plane. I told you - it was a perfect plan that he developed in order to accomplish what he did.

>>implying someone like Xellos can't just force/trick a mazoku to commit trickery
He can't.

>>implying getting rid of the one out of two people who has the ability to kill your entire race isn't worth sacrificing
Except it's rumored that she has a piece of Shabranigdu inside her and she brings most of the monsters exactly what they're looking for - chaos. And no, only pure Mazoku can attack from Astral Plane and most of those died out during that war already.

>>101617917
Your reading comprehension is piss poor if you think I said that Slayers has depth.

>>101617915
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Sorceror's Guild, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on bandits, and I have over 8000 confirmed kills. I am trained in black magic and I’m the top sorceress in the entire Mazoku barrier. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on Seyruun, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am casting my Dragon Slave across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare to be destroyed by the power Lord Shabby and I posess, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just without counting my buddies. Not only is my fighter extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the Claire Bible and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

>implying
it makes your argument look like shit (though it is shit anyway) and makes you look like a /v/ermin (except you are, for sure).

>implying plot armor doesn't usually come with perfectly justified excuses but is still corny and contrived as fuck
Nope, it doesn't work like that and the excuses aren't corny here. They are very much valid.

Because she grew up with an even bigger bitch for an older sister.

Fucking Paladins, man. They're always assholes.

Why is she so perfect?

One of the best female characters in anime.
>>
>>101618400
Nothing. She doesn't appear in the novels or the manga either. All the information about her comes from an episode of Try and a couple of stuff Lina says about her in the book and interviews.

May be there's something more in the side-novels, but those are trash.

Rance is based on the story of Pillage & Rape

The whole fucking Golem battle in Slayers Great.
