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.

so do i. yuuko is amazingly hot.

Yuuko is 10/10 hot. Especially since she is super blindingly pale....which I like....

You better!

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.

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.

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?
>>
>>11327323

Didn't read the thread.
>>
>>11327411

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.

Those are all still technically right.

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.

What kind of failnigger hates Slayers?

Everybody loves Slayers.

Seriously, slayers have a huge fanbase.

I actually enjoyed Gurren Lagann, had the old feeling when a mecha transformed into its ultimate form.
>>
>>11327686
Is this thread about shows with huge fanbases thinking their shows suck cause of the inevitable backlash against the fanbase?
>>
>>11327223

Your theory is flawed. I sucked a cock this very morning and still love Slayers.
>>
>>11327645

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.

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.

Elfen Lied.

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.
>>
>>11327787
did you fuck her afterwards?
i am interested in this
>>
>>11327757

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.

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.
>>
>>11327841
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.
>>
>>11327839

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.
>>
>>11327841

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.

>>11327849
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
