Slayers (jap. スレイヤーズ Sureiyāzu) este o serie de peste 52 de romane ușoare, scrise de Hajime Kanzaka și ilustrate de Rui Araizumi; ulterior, acestea au condus spre dezvoltarea mai multor titluri manga, cinci serii anime, trei OVA-uri și cinci filme.

Slayers urmărește aventurile vrăjitoarei Lina Inverse și a însoțitorilor ei prin călătoria lumii lor[1][2]. Ei utilizează magie puternică și săbii luptându-se cu vrăjitori, demoni care încearcă să distrugă și să domine lumea cu întuneric, dar ocazional sunt și găști de bandiți. Seria este considerată una dintre cele mai populare anime-uri din anii '90[3].

Concept și personaje[modificare | modificare sursă]

În cadrul universului din Slayers, ființa supremă este Lordul Coșmarurilor, creator al cel puțin patru lumi paralele. Un artefact numit Biblia Claire conține informații conform cărora Lordul are ca menire redobândirea "formei sale reale",[4] care poate fi obținută doar prin distrugerea lumilor și revenirea la însuși haosul. Din motive neînțelese, Lordul Coșmarurilor nu a acționat pe baza acestei dorințe, așteptând în schimb revenirea la haos. Fiecare din aceste tărâmuri prezintă diverși zei (shinzoku, lit. "rasă divină") și demoni (mazoku, lit. "rasă demonică"), a căror luptă este eternă. Deznodământul acestor lupte ar fi decisiv pentru soarta lumilor - victoria zeilor ar conduce la pace în rândul lumilor, iar cea a demonilor ar conduce la intoarcerea in Marea Haosului.

Dragonul Ceiphied și Shabranigdo-Ochi de Rubin sunt zeul și demonul suprem al lumilor din Slayers. Cu mult timp în urmă, războiul lor se încheiase la egalitate atunci când Ceiphied a reușit să împartă trupul lui Shabranigdo în șapte bucăți pentru a preveni readucerea sa la viață, apoi să le sigileze în interiorul sufletelor umane. Pe măsură ce sufletele respective sunt reîncarnate, fragmentele individuale ar fi fost sterse până când Shabranigdo ar fi distrus complet. Cu toate acestea, Ceiphied a fost atât de extenuat din cauza acestei acțiuni, încât el însuși s-a scufundat in Marea Haosului, lăsând în urmă 4 bucăți din trupul său în lume. Cu un mileniu înainte de evenimentele din Slayers, unul din fragmentele demonului Shabranigdo (sigilat în interiorul lui Lei Magnus, un vrăjitor foarte puternic) a revenit la viață și a început Resurrection War (降魔戦争 Kōma-sensō?, alternately "War of Demon Conquering") împotriva unei părți din Ceiphied, Regele Dragonului de Apă, cunoscut și ca Aqualord Ragradia. În cele din urmă, bucata din Shabranigdo cștigase, însă Aqualord își folosește ultimele puteri pentru a-l sigila într-un bloc magic de gheață în interiorul Munților Kataart. Cu toate acestea, ajutoarele lui Shabranigdo sunt libere, sigilând o parte din lume in interiorul unei bariere magice, prin care doar Mazoku pot trece.[5]

Se disting patru tipuri de magie în acest univers: Neagră, Albă, Șamanică și Sfântă. Magia Neagră, precum Dragon Slave, își primeste puterile direct de la Mazoku și poate cauza daune enorme. Magia albă prezintă origini obscure și este folosită pentru vindecare și protecție. Vrăjile șamanistice sunt orientate spre manipularea și alterarea elementelor de bază (pământ, aer, foc, apă și spirit), fiind folosite în scop ofensiv și defensiv, precum Raywing, Fireball, or Elmekia Lance. Magia Sfântă folosește puterea Shinzoku, însă nu a putut fi manifestată decât după ce bariera ridicată de Mazoku a fost distrusă ca urmare a distrugerii lui Phibrizzo, Stăpânul Iadului. Un Mazoku poate fi rănit de magie șamanică, sfântă sau neagră care are ca sursă de putere un alt Mazoku, cu putere mult mai mare decât ținta sa.

Mai presus decât orice alt element magic sunt 2 vrăji care preiau puterea Lordului Coșmarurilor; acestea sunt Ragna Blade, capabilă să reteze orice obstacol sau ființă și Giga Slave, care poate ucide orice oponent, dar care poate de asemenea distruge lumea dacă nu este rostită corect. Datorită faptului că își preiau puterea direct de la Lordul Coșmarurilor, alături de cele 4 tipuri de magie, ar putea fi înclusă o a 5-a, Magia Haosului.

In July 1998, Central Park Media announced they had licensed the manga for distribution in North America.[11] On June 15, 1999, Slayers: Medieval Mayhem was released.[12] The four-volume series Slayers Special was published between October 12, 2002, and June 25, 2003.[13][14] A seven-volume series Super-Explosive Demon Story followed between July 9, 2002 and December 1, 2004.[15][16] Finally, Slayers Premium was published in North America on July 5, 2005.[17]

Between July 26, 2008 and March 2009, a new manga series entitled Slayers Light Magic (スレイヤーズ ライト・マジック) was serialised in Kadokawa Shoten's Kerokero Ace. The series was written by Yoshijirō Muramatsu and illustrated Shin Sasaki, and set in a technological world instead of a fantasy world.[18][19]

Anime TV series[modificare | modificare sursă]

Vezi și: List of Slayers episodes

The self-titled first season of the anime is a derivative of the light novel's first three volumes. Slayers NEXT was adapted from the events of volumes 4-8, whereas Slayers TRY is an original story. A fourth season, Slayers AGAIN, was rumored following the success of TRY, but early scheduling conflicts caused interest in the project to dissipate.[20]

Central Park Media licensed and distributed the anime in North America under the Software Sculptors label on VHS and Laserdisc between 1996 and 1998, collected in eight volumes.[21] It was a commercial success for Central Park, which led them to license Slayers NEXT and Slayers TRY; NEXT was first shipped from April 1999 in a similar format. A box set of the first four volumes was released in July 1999, and a box set of the second four volumes in October.[22] Slayers TRY was released later in 2000. The first three seasons were subsequently re-released on DVD (in season box sets). Months before Central Park's license for the anime properties expired, FUNimation Entertainment was able to obtain the license and it aired as part of the new owner's programming block on CoLours TV, as well as the FUNimation Channel.[23] The first bilingual DVD box set after FUNimation's rescue of the license was released on August 27, 2007 retaining the Software Sculptors-produced English dub.[24] A boxset of Slayers, NEXT and TRY was released by Funimation on August 4, 2009.[25]

Fox Kids won the rights to broadcast Slayers but eventually did not air the anime since it would be too heavy to edit it for content. The first North American television broadcast of The Slayers was February 17, 2002 on the International Channel.[26] In 2009, MVM Films began releasing the series in the United Kingdom on a monthly basis. The first series was released on four DVDs between January 5, and April 6, 2009. The first volume of Slayers NEXT was released on May 11, 2009.[27] Episodes have also been made available on the streaming video sites Hulu, YouTube, Crackle, Anime News Network, Netflix, and Funimation's website.[28]

A fourth anime series, Slayers Revolution, premiered in Japan on July 2, 2008.[29] Megumi Hayashibara performed both the opening and ending theme songs.[30] The new plot is told across two 13-episode arcs and follows an original storyline that has subplots based on events in the novels, with series director Takashi Watanabe and production studio J.C.Staff reprising their duties from the three original TV series.[31] A fifth Slayers series titled Slayers Evolution-R is the second 13-episode arc of Slayers Revolution and was aired on AT-X starting on January 12, 2009 in Japan.[32] FUNimation licensed both Slayers Revolution and Slayers Evolution-R for American release; the episodes in Japanese with English subtitles were uploaded to YouTube, as well as Funimation's website in July 2009.[33] Funimation contracted NYAV Post to produce the English version of the series, with dialogue being recorded in both New York City, and Los Angeles. NYAV Post was able to reunite most of the original Central Park Media main character cast for the new season. However, Michael Sinterniklaas replaced David Moo as Xellos.[34] Other notable characters, such as Sylphiel, Prince Phil, and Naga the Serpent were also recast with new voice actors.

In December 2009, Funimation announced that the first Slayers Revolution boxset would be released on March 16, 2010.[35] Funimation released the first four English-dubbed episodes of Slayers Revolution to YouTube on January 19, 2010.[36] They have also uploaded the first two English-dubbed episodes of Evolution-R to YouTube and released Evolution-R to the DVD in June 2010. Funimation released both Slayers Revolution and Evolution-R to Blu-ray on September 21, 2010 [37] Both seasons were later re-released together in a DVD/Blu-ray combo pack.[38] Both Revolution and Evolution-R made their North American television debut when they began airing on the FUNimation Channel on September 6, 2010.[39]

  • A second three-episode OVA series, Slayers Excellent (スレイヤーズエクセレント?) followed in 1998, also directed by Wantabe and produced by J.C.Staff. ADV Films released all the OVAs to VHS and DVD in both North America and the UK.[43]

In addition, some Slayers characters are featured in 2012's Heroes Fantasia[46] and in the doujin game Magical Battle Arena.

Music[modificare | modificare sursă]

Reception[modificare | modificare sursă]

Of the various media which make up the Slayers franchise, the anime has by far reached the largest audience and is considered to be one of the most popular series of the 1990s.[3] As it is a parody of the high fantasy genre, the series's driving force lies in comic scenarios alluding to other specific anime, or more general genre tropes and clichés. Due to the series' comedic nature, less development is given to plot and characters, which some consider predictable. Nevertheless, the series' focus on humor and entertainment and "old school" anime feel make it a nostalgic classic to many.[47]

In Anime Essentials: Every Thing a Fan Needs to Know, Gilles Poitras wrote: "More humorous and less serious looking than the characters in the Lodoss War series, the stars of Slayers provide action and laughs."[48] In The Anime Encyclopedia: A Guide to Japanese Animation Since 1917, Helen McCarthy similarly called it "the antidote to the deadly serious Record of Lodoss War, with a cynical cast modeled on argumentative role-players. (...) Ridiculing its own shortcomings, Slayers has successfully kept a strong following that watches for what some might call biting satire, and others bad workmen blaming their tools."[49]

Joseph Luster of Otaku USA called it "the very definition of an all-encompassing media franchise. (...) Slayers certainly has that in its memorable lineup, and they'll likely cast some sort of spell on you, regardless of age."[50] Paul Thomas Chapman from the same magazine opined it is a "franchise whose remarkable longevity and popularity is matched only by its remarkable averageness," especially regarding the various aspects of the TV series, but still appealing to him and making him return to it when he looks for a light entertainment.[51]
