Fujimi Shobo's Fantasia Bunko imprint announced on Friday that the 16th Slayers volume, the first new installment in writer Hajime Kanzaka and illustrator Rui Araizumi's series in nearly 18 years, will ship in Japan on October 20.

Fujimi Shobo's Dragon Age magazine published a pre-publication for the new work in January, and the novel began serializing on March 20.

Fantasia Bunko label published the Slayers novel in 1990, and the 15th novel, Slayers 15: Demon Slayers!, in May 2000. Tokyopop published eight of the novels in English.

The main novel series and the 1991 side story novel series Slayers Special have together inspired five television anime series, two original video anime, five anime films, and multiple manga adaptations.
