Hajime Kanzaka is a lazy writer! I can safely say that! I’ve consulted a higher power regarding some stuff that happens in this book… and the verdict is lazy fuck! Apparently when Mr. Kanzaka uses Gaury stupidity to explain any fantasy element of the story he is being lazy! He is braking what according to my higher power a really important rule of writing… something called “show don’t tell”. so… every time somebody who since to be a really important element of the Slayers universe shows up Gaury ...more

Talk about your mayhem this girl has a serious appetite. Plus her partner Gourry can eat just as much as her. They have been recruited by a council member for protection. Strange turn of events this series is a great read. A must read for any and all manga lovers everywhere.

It was good to see what Kanzaka did with Lina and Gourry now that he's done the "boring" work of establishing who they are and what they can do.

She's also more restrained and less likely to whip off a monumentally inappropriate spell for a small provocation.

I thought the plot hung together a bit better in th

This was far darker and more visceral than it's corresponding Anime segment: akin to Alfred and Alfonze attempting alchemy on their departed loved ones dark. Not as much humor, but the story acquires a good deal of meat that the first novel was lacking. While Lina remains the self-assured smart-arsed sorcery genius, both she and Gourry come into the serious side of their natures and remind us just how dangerous they can be.
