Slayers is a series of fifteen light novels written by Hajime Kanzaka. It was later developed into several manga titles, three televised anime series, two three-episode Original Video Animations (OVAs), and five movies. It also spanned three console role-playing games for the Sony Playstation, as well as one for the Nintendo Super Famicom (known internationally as the Super Nintendo Entertainment System). Slayers is a Dungeons & Dragons-style parody that follows the adventures of the young sorceress Lina Inverse and her companions as they journey through their world. Using powerful magic and swordsmanship they battle overreaching wizards, demons seeking to destroy the world, dark lords, and the occasional hapless gang of bandits.
