New Slayers Fantasy TV Anime Series in the Works
posted on by Egan Loo
Page 24 of Fujimi Shobo's Dragon Magazine's April issue — which is officially on sale on February 29 but was previewed early — has announced that a new television anime project is in the works for Hajime Kanzaka's Slayers fantasy light novels. The official title and the cast has yet to be revealed. The official Hajime Kanzaka Fan Club has confirmed the news and added that the project will feature an anime-exclusive story, split across two cours (two seasons of three months). Director Takashi Watanabe will oversee J.C. Staff, the same studio that worked with him on all three previous Slayers television series. Kanzaka also created the Lost Universe novels, manga, and anime series.
The fan club could not confirm who will be in the project's cast or even if Lina, the popular character voiced by Megumi Hayashibara, will be featured in this project. The club's news report did say that more details will be revealed in Dragon Magazine and anime magazines. Central Park Media and FUNimation Entertainment both released the three previous Slayers television series in English in North America.
