Did you ever think that Terry Pratchett had the comic-fantasy genre all wrapped up with his sprawling Discworld saga? Think again—dynamic writer and artist duo Hajime Kanzaka and Rui Araizumi give Pratchett a solid run for his money with The Slayers, their tale of sorceress supreme Lina Inverse.
Lina is a ludicrously powerful magic user who’s more renowned for hoarding treasure, eating restaurants out of business and inadvertently leveling towns with her devastatingly powerful spells than her occasional (and often strictly incidental) world saving. FUNimation have seen fit to re-release the full 72-episode anime TV series, the better to bring the show’s throngs of fans cruising down memory lane one more time in preparation for the forthcoming new TV series Slayers Revolution.

I’m torn. I like Terry Pratchett, but I’m not a big fan of anime. I’ve never seen the show, so I’ll have to keep an eye out for it.
Any anime fans out there who remember this show? Excited for the new version?
