Slayers Revolution, Evolution-R
Partijama: Those last 2 seasons felt more like one, each having just half the number of episodes of the previous ones.
Lazlo: The story-lines were essentially one as well.
Partijama: True, it really was one story; they could easily have combined them into a single season.
Popo: And boy did it make for a cracking adventure, so much action and fun.
Partijama: Oh, it really was. And, as always, we were treated to a plethora of new characters – good, bad, and in-between.
Lazlo: The emissary for the monster race, Xellos, would probably fit that description.
Partijama: Well done, Lord Lazlo.
Lazlo (Lord face, smirks, regal wave): Hmph, indeed.
Popo: Ahaaa, I see. You know, more and more, Xellos seems to be going over to the dark side. Someone needs to have a word with his superiors, let them know it’s just not cool to have Xellos helping out these rowdy guys.
Partijama: Rowdy is quite the understatement, Razz.
Lazlo: Xellos also seems increasingly less inclined to associate with Lina and her motley crew.
Popo: Not to mention his sense of humour taking a drastic nose-dive. (Finger wagging) Hey, Xellos, if you’re listening, you need to embrace the way of the bards before you go too far, buddy.
Lazlo: I may have to retract everything I just said about that miscreant.
Partijama: Hehehe…you know, I was really hoping we’d find out who Xellos was reporting to at the end of the “Slayers Try” season.
Popo: Yeah, me too, shucks. I was looking forward to getting to the bottom of that mystery.
Lazlo: Hmph, you should focus your miniscule intellect on the mystery of your ever shrinking brain, Popo.
Popo: (Cackling, swaying) That one’s for me to know, and you to find out.
Lazlo: I pray I never do, not even by accident.
Partijama: Speaking of shrinking brains, how about that Gourry?
Popo: Oh man, that guy is the worst.
Lazlo: (Eyes Popo, snorts) Not nearly.
Partijama: Amelia was stunned by how bad his memory had become. That part was funny, when she blurted out her dismay.
Popo: Hahaha, Lina did more than comment…WHAM, right in the head; just like the good old days.
Lazlo: Those good old days have no doubt contributed to his bad old brain.
Partijama: One thing he never seems forgetful or confused about is his love for food.
Popo: As with Lina. I tell you, their love of food is probably the most dependable thing all throughout the series.
Partijama: Hehehe, yes, they’re hilarious. It’s so much fun seeing them battle over food.
Lazlo: Not much fun for whoever has to pay the bill.
Partijama: Ooohh, poor Princess Amelia; that duty fell to her several times. Other than those occasions, she remained her bright, courageous, justice-loving self.
Popo: Even the most trying situations, and incorrigible villains can’t snuff out Amelia’s love for justice.
Lazlo: As always, there was no lack of fiends to test her resolve. Zuuma, the assassin, was a rather formidable foe.
Popo: That guy was as slippery as a snake covered in peanut butter. Hmmm, must love peanut butter nearly as much as I do.
Lazlo: Or perhaps it dived into the peanut butter to escape your bardly blabber.
Popo: Ha, Nice try, buddy, but a snake can’t breathe in peanut butter, so there goes your theory…POOF.
Lazlo: The POOF is on you, Popo, because the snake is using a special, butter-filtering breathing apparatus.
Popo: A snake with a snorkel??! (Narrows eyes, purses lips) Hmm, that kind of makes sense.
Partijama (chuckling): It was good to see Zelgadis again.
Popo: Hahaaa, Zelgadis, always his cool chimera self.
Lazlo: And still nurturing the dream of his body returning to its former state.
Partijama: I don’t think he’ll ever abandon that dream. (Sighs) Poor Zel.
Popo: Yeah. I felt sorry for that guy whgo had to give him a massage, (cackling, feet wiggling about) he was really struggling with Zelgadis’s stony body.
Partijama: It was funny.
Lazlo: The buffoon, Wizer Frayon, was good for a host of laughs as well.
Popo: That guy was awesome.
Partijama: Especially when he was mixing it up with Lina. Those exchanges were as comical as the ones she has with Gourry.
Popo: Pokota was another delightful addition, little feisty guy…
Lazlo: Those ears…arms…appendages made him unmistakable.
Popo: Yeah, they were weird.
Partijama: Well, he was trapped in the body of toy.
Lazlo: He was surprisingly powerful, on par with Lina even.
Partijama: He even performed an impressive Dragon Slave.
Popo: Oh yes, I wasn’t expecting that. But, hey, all those parts when the little fella and Lina were going at each other were awesome.
Partijama: Just about every scene with him was a treat. I loved his noble air, honesty, and earnest attitude.
Popo: Cantankerous little fellow he was, and a royal too, (eyes Lazlo) kind of reminds one of someone, doesn’t he?
Lazlo: Why you…YOUUUU…
Partijama: We were treated to some excellent quests, and a slew of titanic battles.
Popo: That Lina is a monster-magnet, I mean, Ruby-eye Shabranigdo…AGAIN?? I thought we’d seen the last of that party-crashing fiend!
Partijama: Shabranigdo does enjoy a good crashing.
Lazlo: Especially on a planetary scale. But before Shabranigdo, there was Zanaffar.
Popo: Yeesh, that creature was humongous. Well, I guess they all, aren’t they? But this one was different, you know, not hideous…kinda pretty actually.
Partijama: I agree.
Lazlo: It produced some fantastic energy blasts. (Fiend face, eyes gleam) I would’ve made far better use of it than that catty miscreant.
Partijama: (Throat-clearing) I loved the way the gang kept reminding Lina how destructive she was.
Popo: Especially Wizer, he was going to arrest her…well, just for being her…
Partijama: Wizer was hilarious, and so persistent. And he was actually much smarter than he let on.
Popo: I was happy to see Prince Philionel, and Sylphiel too.
Lazlo: I noticed Sylphiel referring to Gourry as “Sir Gourry.” That was quite unexpected.
Partijama: She usually calls him “Gourry dear” or “Dear Gourry.”
Popo: Yeah, what was that about? I was looking forward to her throwing in a few “Gourry darlings” too.
Partijama: (Giggles) So was I.
Lazlo: Even Rezo returned.
Popo: (Clapping) Oh man, Rezo is such a cool villain…aaacck!
Partijama: Seems that someone is rubbing off on you, Razz.
Lazlo: Pfft, one can always hope.
Popo: (Long sigh) I wish Lina and the gang would go on more adventures, for ever and ever and ever.
Lazlo: I will miss their shenanigans.
Popo: I’d be more than happy to fill in for you, Lazzie ole buddy ole-
Lazlo: I won’t miss them that much, you oaf!
Popo: (Sighs) I wonder if the Bombastyk bards will ever create another season…or two…or three…
Partijama: Well, we could always re-watch the series.
Popo: (Eyes twinkle, perks up) Now there’s an idea.
Partijama: Or we can go ahead with the movies.
Lazlo: T-t-there a-are…??
Partijama: Oh yes, didn’t I mention-
Partijama: Oh my, well, on that note…shall we?
Popo: Just let me grab my Bombastykan electric guitar and-
Lazlo: (Whips out Twylle blaster, eyes twinkle) Excellent! I haven’t had any target practice in a while.
Popo: On second thoughts, hehe, I’m sure there’ll be music enough in the movies.
(Lazlo deactivates blaster, grumbling)
Partijama: And don’t forget, you also have (drum roll, trumpets, disco music, trays rise from floor) – ICECREAM!
Popo/Lazlo: YESSSS!! (Dive in unison)
Partijama: Oh goodness…Razz…L-Lord Lazlo…
Popo/Lazlo: Mine mine mine…(squabble-squabble-squabble)
Partijama: Awww, so much like Lina and Gourry…SPLENDID.
