With the recent acquisition of Orphen, I can surely hope to see the classic Slayers licensed?
“Slayers follows the adventures of teenage sorceress Lina Inverse and her companions as they journey through their world. Using powerful magic and swordsmanship they battle overreaching wizards, demons seeking to destroy the world, dark lords, and the occasional hapless gang of bandits.”
Author - Hajime Kanzaka
Artist - Araizumi Rui
Year - 1989
Status - 15 Volumes (Completed)
Original Publisher - Fujimi Shobo (Kadokawa)
This brings back memories, it was one of the first animes I watched as a kid lol

@terabyte It's still a fun watch. I true anime classic.
Would love to see Slayers released. I’m sure they’ll do another anime for it at some point, that would be when I bet it gets grabbed.
Slayers is getting its first new book in 18 years!
Wow, talk about a little pause lol
Posting to give my support for this potential acquisition/rescue.
Yes, this series was originally licensed by Tokyopop, but like their other light novel efforts, they ultimately abandoned it only half done (8 of the original 15 volumes). Typical of the time, they did not attempt digital release either.
As someone who went out-of-my-way to buy these years ago, I would buy these all again to, if nothing else, to get better translations than what we have. Here's a discussion and analysis of the rather odd-ball translation we got.
Oh, and whatever business Orphen is giving you guys, I pretty much guarantee this series will do better. Slayers will have waaaay more brand recognition. :p
Thank you for your consideration!

I want to see this truly classic series get some love. The anime is still a great watch.
this is already on Amazon just not in epub formate. it was licensed by Tokyo pop. Amazon paper back
i would go for a retranslation if Tokyo pop did drop the license.

As I said before, as I enjoy Kanzaka's work, seeing Lost Universe eventually translated (same companies as Slayers) would be a dream come true.
Bookwalker has a heavy sale on Slayers and other Kadokawa titles right now. Up to 70% off.
