Slayers: The Motion Picture review
This one will Slay you with laughter
The movie that launched one of the most popular anime franchises today, this film follows the misadventures of Lina Inverse, young sorceress extraordinare, & her partner/rival Nagha, who's equally busty & brain dead, as they travel the lands in search of riches & free food. The first thing you'll notice about this film is that it tries hard to be silly, and it does a good job between lots of cheap jokes, surprise appearances, quick exits, and heroines blowing each other up with magic. But there's a fair amount of action as well, so it's not just about the comedy, and the soundtrack (available on CD) is very good as well.
If you're looking to put all the Slayers titles together, this is a great place to start. Recommended for all fantasy & comedy fans.
