Slayers: Dragon Slave!
The very utterance of the name Lina Inverse sends a shiver through those who are familiar with the exploits of the peerless sorceress. This horrific reputation draws some of them like a moth to a flame. The mad alchemist, Diol is such a man. Seeking to perfect his mysterious arts, he has selected none other than Lina Inverse to be the catalyst, the final ingredient as it were, in the creation of the ultimate monster. Needless to say, Lina isn't exactly flattered.
Then, as the Slayers leave the frying pan for the fire, Lina discovers that there is no force greater than a mother's love, and none scarier! Looking for easy cash, Lina and Nahga take up babysitting, and their first charge is the effeminate son of a noble family searching for the heroic achievement that will earn him instant fame and a position in the Royal Guard. Caught in a bizarre family struggle, Lina's endurance of the absurd is put to the test in Slayers: Dragon Slave!
Slayers: Explosion Array!
What could possibly be more dangerous than an encounter with the infamously short tempered Lina Inverse? Try an encounter with two Linas! Magically replicated for your viewing pleasure, the great and mighty Lina Inverse stands poised to change the world of wizardry forever! In an act of supreme desperation, the Society of Shamans and Sorcerers summons their last resort, the wielder of the dreaded Dragon Slave, the notorious bandit slayer, the bane of restaurateurs everywhere, Lina Inverse.
One of the Society's chief officers has absconded with the legendary Shadow Reflector, a device so powerful that the possessor holds the fate of the globe in his palm. Nevertheless, the reward is just too good, and the intrepid Lina takes to the trail. A mad man controls the ultimate weapon, and the most dangerous girl in the world is hunting him down. Now there's a formula for disaster!
