Slayers Revolution

July 8, 2008

I really like what I see here. I’m pretty sure that Slayers Revolution is rather confusing and at parts unsettling for those who haven’t at least watched the first two, maybe three seasons of Slayers (don’t let me start on the various OVAs and movies here). However, for the ones like me who have done so in the distant past everything fits and makes perfect sense. They caught the style and atmosphere of the older seasons quite well while presenting an animation that fells fresh and vivid. The whole setting and pacing of the story might be a bit antiquate today, but that doesn’t bother me at all. I rather welcome it somehow.
I guess that’s one of the advantages of anime vs. normal series. You couldn’t have Richard Dean Anderson having play MacGyver or David Rasche staring as Sledge Hammer today again resulting in the same beloved series that ended years ago. Those could be new and quite funny series (most likely not I’m afraid), but they could never be like the original ones again. Same goes for movies, old Indiana Jones fighting Soviets wasn’t that bad to watch, but Indi without Nazis is, well, just Indy without Nazis.
Megumi Hayashibara on the other hand sounds like she always did and so Slayers Revolution feels like there wasn’t a years long gap to its predecessor. And that is really great.
