It is widely regarded as a monumental work that expanded the light novel genre. It has received 5 TV anime series / movies, an OVA, games, and more.
The long-awaited new work and its reason
Slayers is a frequently cited representative title of the 90s, the same as Neon Genesis Evangelion and Martian Successor Nadesico.
Lateral biography works Special or Smash‘s issues were full of gags and did continue for quite a long time, but the series’ real and strong fantasy taste ended with Demon Slayers (Vol.15), which was published in 2000.
Fans have been longing to get a sequel for quite a while now, and finally they will! The author released a hint on his fan club ‘Mega Brand Kikaku’ that the new work will be released in spring 2018.
Fans have to be patient in order to get new anime episodes, because the story after Vol.9. has yet to be adapted.
