ITT: Shows that everybody hates....but for some reason you are the exception and actually really like it.
Mine: Slayers, all the newfags and plenty of oldfags hate it for some reason.
inb4 lucky star
I like Slayers.
Your persecution complex is DESTROYED.
Slayers actualy has quite a large cult following
fucker! I love Slayers, Fuck I BOUGHT SLAYERS.
Since when did people hate Slayers?
Another Slayers fan here. Where did you get the idea that it wasn't liked by oldfags?
BAWWW QUALITY BAWWWWW NOT MOE BAWWWW
I genuinely like this show
I generally like Yuuko's LARGE MILKY WHITE TITS.
so do i. yuuko is amazingly hot.
Yuuko is 10/10 hot. Especially since she is super blindingly pale....which I like....
I'd totally dive into her without hesitation.
Sorry to rain on your parade, but you're not the 'only one' anymore.
Yoko and Alicia Florence same VA, coincidence that both are hot? I think not.
Same here. And I'm talking about CPM's FUCKED UP excuse for a DVD set, not the one with remastered audio. As a matter of fact, Slayers happens to be my favorite anime series.
I liked Tsukihime....
/a/ hates One Piece, Naruto and Bleach but NOT Slayers
I would become Yuuko's slave to have sex with her noodle body.
yes the anime
I assume you mean the anime? People liked the VN, but they hated the anime out of existence.
Lucky Star and Haruhi
Not kidding either.
only total cocksucking faggotyrs would hate slayers
Yes I do hate slayers, it's a pretty stupid show if you really think about it.
But I do really like Gundam Seed Destiny......
FUCK YEAH, SLAYERS!
FUCK NO, YOU HAVE THE WORST TASTE EVER.
I particulary enjoyed the short M.D. Geist series.
Also, any new word on the new Slayers Revolution project?
I liked MD Geist too....call me crazy. The skin eating robots were awesome....
I really don't understand some random nerds' hate for this ova. It was great, mindless action, 80ies style, like fotns, nothing more.
I didn't realize that people here hated Slayers. I guess starting a bunch of threads about it when the new series starts will allow me to talk about an awesome show and troll at the same time. Double win.
Megumi Hayashibara sings opening and ending.....
good old times
> People liked the VN, but they hated the anime out of existence.
What the hell are you talking about?
Yeah those were shitty. All of CPM's release back then were.
Bless you guys
Yeah, ADV and that other studio dicked around with the translations too. Damn them all.
Anyone know what exactly Funimation has changed in those remastered dvd sets?
Didn't read the thread.
I don't remember many issues with the translations, other than that ADV and CPM translation some names and shit differently.
Well that and an issue with Rezo's "blindness" that resulted in an error because they only licensed the first half of the series and the translator hadn't seen the whole thing.
God, CPM never knew what they were doing.
Nope. Don't intend to either.
I forgot which licensor did it but Naga was turned into Nahga and then some licensor decided it would be great to rewrite the spell names, even the obvious ones like Gaav Flare into Garb Flare.
Whoever licensed Slayers Try caused the whole Filia x Xellos coupling fandom with the mistake translation "That's the dragon I love"
I'll stop here though.
> I forgot which licensor did it but Naga was turned into Nahga and then some licensor decided it would be great to rewrite the spell names, even the obvious ones like Gaav Flare into Garb Flare.
Those are all still technically right.
> Whoever licensed Slayers Try caused the whole Filia x Xellos coupling fandom with the mistake translation "That's the dragon I love"
I don't remember that. It's been years since I watched it though.
There definately was something between the two of them by the end of the series, but they definately weren't at the point where they were in love with each other.
Awesome magical girl show is awesome.
DRAGON SLAVE! DRAGON SLAVE! DRAGON SLAVE! DRAGON SLAVE! DRAGON SLAVE! DRAGON SLAVE! DRAGON SLAVE! DRAGON SLAVE! DRAGON SLAVE! DRAGON SLAVE! DRAGON SLAVE! DRAGON SLAVE! DRAGON SLAVE! DRAGON SLAVE! DRAGON SLAVE! DRAGON SLAVE! DRAGON SLAVE! DRAGON SLAVE! DRAGON SLAVE! DRAGON SLAVE! DRAGON SLAVE! DRAGON SLAVE!
I like Slayers, but you know what else I like?
You're referring to ADV. For the movies and the OAVs they really dicked around with the spell names.
i hope ur not serious, its a fact mazoku cannot love anything. Only person xellos remotely respects is Lina and the picture is not related
What kind of failnigger hates Slayers?
Everybody loves Slayers.
/a/ loves unwashed nigger cock and code geass.
Seriously, slayers have a huge fanbase.
I actually enjoyed Gurren Lagann, had the old feeling when a mecha transformed into its ultimate form.
Is this thread about shows with huge fanbases thinking their shows suck cause of the inevitable backlash against the fanbase?
Your theory is flawed. I sucked a cock this very morning and still love Slayers.
I said there was something between them, I didn't say that they were in love with each other. Actually I stated that they weren't.
Their relationship definately progressed from where is start.
Also I fapped to that doujin several times. Fillia is <3.
I like Getbackers.
I don't see the big deal with Slayers. Then again, I didn't see it until this year. I guess it's a nostalgia thing? But I mean, I don't hate it either. I think it's amusing. Just not amusing enough for me to watch 72+ episodes.
You had to be there.
I watched Slayers recently, and I share your opinion.
I watched the first two season for Dragon Slave and Ragna Blade but I've had the third sitting here for months without watching it.
I owe this anime so much, and I still like it.
My sister, who just barely tolerates anime, sat through a marathon of all 3 seasons of Slayers with me when I first bought them. We basically did nothing but watch Slayers, eat, and sleep for 3 days straight.
did you fuck her afterwards?
i am interested in this
It's a fun show and it has a decent storyline. It also progressively gets better with the second series and arguably the third (Although I personally disagree).
It's also the type of show that really can appeal to a large audience which goes back to my whole claim about CPM not having a fucking idea about what they were doing.
They sold the DVDs in box sets only, did a shitty job with them, and initially refused to fix an authoring error with them. They should have treated it like it was their top property (Because it probably was their most marketable show) and tried to get it on a TV station that normal people actually had.
Answer this faggot NOW
No, but I was fully expecting a post like yours simply because this is 4chan.
sage get the fuck out now please die ect ect;
Can I fuck your sister? I have all the Slayers DVDs if she wants to watch them with me before I pound her.
Everybody likes Slayers.
This picture describes my feelings toward Slayers Try. Hopefully, the new series will recapture the magic of the first two seasons.
on a side note, I think Tokyopop fucked up a bit with the Slayers novels. As in they licensed them too early and then stopped because sales were low. Now that Slayers is making a massive come back if they put some $ into marketing could easily make nice profit off the few fans
Yeah, Try was fucking weak. Should have just been a 13 episode series.
One of my goals in life is to get the Slayers novels in their original Japanese. They're either incredibly hard to find, or I'm just looking in the wrong places.
Slayers Try was definately different. It was darker and less focused on the characters we were used to. Phillia was basically the main character and the others were just there because they had to be, and by that point they had kind of gotten old.
I personally liked it (Next was better IMO though), but I can see why others might not. If it makes you feel better, Try was an original story and wasn't based on any of the books, so it's far more likely that the new season will be more like the first two.
They dropped them? I was going to pick them up at some point, but never got around to them. That sucks.
They're actually starting to reprint the earlier Japanese novels with this new season coming out.
I also thought Amazon.jp had some of the later novels available.
That's easily understandable seeing as Slayers Try was totally "fictional" it had no basic substenance from the novels. At least they managed to capture a piece of the Xellos the novels have.
If I recall right, Tokyopop announced that they licensed the Slayers novels. They translated the first six novels and because of the low sales decided to stop there and tried to pass those six first novels as all there is.
This caused a huge shitstorm amongst the most decided fans and spawned a petition for Tokyopop to continue translating. After a while Tokyopop conceded and translated two more novels(7 and) which effectively finish what we know as Slayers Next.
The new upcoming anime, while having anime original plot, will draw at least some plot elements from the novels 9-15.
Fuck thats a lot of tl;dr
way to kill the thread namefag
