The official Japanese website has opened for The Slayers Revolution television anime series and confirmed that most of the main Slayers staff and cast are returning. Director Takashi Watanabe, character designer Naomi Miyata, and the animators of J.C. Staff are working on the new anime series as they had on the first three Slayers television series. Joining them is series script supervisor Jiro Takayama, who worked on the two previous television sequels. Author Hajime Kanzaka and illustrator Rui Araizumi are still credited for the original novels' story.
Megumi Hayashibara will reprise the role of Lina Inverse. Yasunori Matsumoto (Gourry Gabriev), Hikaru Midorikawa (Zelgadiss Graywords), and Masami Suzuki (Ameria Wil Tesla Saillune) are all also returning. Noticeably absent from the current official character list is Xellos; last month, Dragon Magazine printed a tongue-in-cheek page spread that hinted — but not stated — that Xellos would be the main lead this time.
