The title of the fifth television series based on Hajime Kanzaka and Rui Araizumi's Slayers fantasy comedy light novels was revealed as Slayers Evolution-R during an autograph session for the two novel creators. TV Tokyo's satellite and cable channel AT-X will carry the series. The official website of the fourth television series, Slayers Revolution (pictured at right), confirmed the news. More details will be revealed later on the website.
In a looping video message that was played at the autograph session, Slayers voice actress and theme song singer Megumi Hayashibara indicated that she is working on many things before the new series, including new music. The autograph session was the first joint one held by Kanzaka and Araizumi in around ten years. Kanzaka had already indicated that Slayers Revolution was conceived as the first part of a storyline that will last half a year (with a break in between). The new series was officially confirmed in September by Fujimi Shobo's Monthly Dragon Age magazine.
