I understand they taste good pickled...
I'm just new to SLAYERS, so I decided that The Motion Picture would be my first animated encounter with Lina and Naga. Boy, did I enjoy it. I got lost on the plot once, but I just ignored it and picked up from there on. Out of the two mages, Lina has to be my favourite. There's something about her... I think it's probably her short temper. My favourite scene is just after when Naga literally bounces onto the screen and admonishes Lina for her diminuative stature. Lina cooly points at Naga and uses a fireball to roast her. I also liked the Midnight Blue song at the end. Oh, Naga! I forgot her. Um, well, just looking at her says it all. The best scene with Naga has to be the jellyfish/sea cucumber battle. That was just an odd spell, as was the one with the dragon made of rock (a massive head and tiny body). One problem, though: I think there wasn't enough of Lina's Dragon Slave.
But on the whole, an excellent piece of viewing for newcomers.
