The reason I am not covering Slayers Revolution any more.

I’m bored with it. Absolutely bored with it.

Nothing has changed from the 90’s – Megumi’s voice, her team of “comedians”, explosions, annoying characters that keep coming back to bug her, interesting intrigue…

But that’s just it, it’s all the same. Everything, every single thing is the same.

When I was just starting to get into anime seriously in the ’90s, I was quite happy watching Slayers series. I remember the first episode when Megumi’s Lina made fun of the stereotype rubbers, and then she proceeded to blow them away.

Boy, that was gold.

I also remember her tenacity fighting the Lord Shaburando, then Lord of Nightmares, and later, something else that could destroy the entire world. In Slayers Try, there was even a little bit more drama as she complained about the victory seemed so hallow.

But that was then…

I’m sorry, all the loyal Slayer fans, but I’m absolutely bored with everything so far, precisely because it’s mostly the same, and this time, the annoying enemy – now a little annoying little brat turned an even more annoying critter, and Amelia’s antics are not funny anymore.

Man, the bottom line? I’m too freakin’ old for this. Or, this just fell out of fashion in the ’00s. The world has changed greatly since the mid-90’s, and Megumi-sama, you’re not funny anymore.

Feel free to chew me out and call me a heretic, but I’m probably just talking to the wall again.

Slayer Revolution ep 04 – Does anyone remeber Amelia being so annoying?

I remember she was much less of an obstruction. But now she’s definitely getting on my nerves.

Justice? Fuck that. Understanding? Fuck that. Protecting the forest (thus being an environmentalist) FUCK THAT.

In addition to an annoying magical animal that’s not in a bishojo anime (if it were a bishojo anime I can understand having one), now we have an annoying “defender of justice”.

I just realized it was funny back in the ’90s when she first started doing that, practically making fun of Sailor Moon-style series, but it’s 2008 and it has now become annoying to me.

To her credit, she gets the stupid animal with 2 huge fists working with her, but the result is the plot being dragged on further (yeah, yeah, I know, I know), and not enough exaggeration that we know and love happens.

Again, something isn’t quite working for me. I can see the writers trying to take everyone’s personality a few notches higher, but for some reason, that makes Amelia super annoying.

– Like, destroy the damned forest already (it’s not the real life hence fuck the environmental damage)!

– Like, let Zegadis stab that little critter already (I’m sure the writers can think of something to save it anyway)!

– Like, let Lina use Dragonslave and beat the crap outta team Amelia and criiter already (hey, I got sick of this plot already)!

However, more of the fun chaos ensues and the seiyuu do a great job as usual. It’s a decent addition to the Slayers legacy but somehow, it hasn’t been that fun in my book. Ganbatte! Megumi-sama tachi!
