Much like two of the old VHS titles, Slayers Excellent, the last of the Slayers DVDs (excluding the half hour special 'Slayers Premium') is in the form of three half hour adventures as opposed to one long one. You'll be pleased to know that this surpasses the VHS episode releases by a long way. The episodes are:
Probably the best of the three, Labyrinth begins by showing us how Lina and Naga first met and ends up with them facing off against Steindorf, the pretentious vampire in his underground labyrinth. The colourful glowy dungeon atmosphere from the original VHS episodes returns and looks as good as ever, and the Steindorf battle is both exciting and hilarious.
2: A Frightening Future
Mirroring both "Jeffrey's Knighthood" and "The Scary Chimerra Plan" from the VHS releases, this hoot of an episode has Lina hired as the bodyguard for a spoiled girl with frigtening similarities to Naga, who, herself, ends up getting involved with, through the most unexpected means. I won't spoil any of this one, but let's say that the twists in the story are very unexpected and you'll have a blast.
3: Miss Lina-Chan's Lovely Makeover Operation
While, sadly, the last episode is the weakest, it still entertains, with Lina and Naga once again opposing each other, siding with two different fashion designers who disagree with each other's style. Golems, spells and general over the top violence become involved as, in true Slayers tradition, a battle over a petty issue escalates to epic proportions.
All in all, 'Excellent' a great DVD which I would highly reccomend to people who enjoyed the original VHS episodes, or even to those new to Slayers who might be having trouble working out where to begin since the first movie and VHS episodes haven't had a DVD release (Where do you begin when the first entry of a series has the word "Return" in the title?!).
