Hajime Kanzaka Launches 3rd Part of Slayers Novel Series

posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Series' 1st volume in 18 years shipped in October

A Fantasia Bunko livestream presentation revealed that Slayers novels writer Hajime Kanzaka launched a third part in the series in the July issue of Fujimi Shobo's Dragon Magazine on Friday.

The first part of the novel series includes the first eight compiled book volumes, and the second part includes the ninth to 15th volumes. The 16th and most recent volume shipped in October as the first new volume in nearly 18 years.

Fujimi Shobo's Fantasia Bunko label published the original 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. The franchise's other novel series include Slayers Smash., Slayers Delicious, and Slayers Select.

Thanks to Леонид Пантелеев for the news tip.
