Slayers (スレイヤーズ, Sureiyāzu?) is a series of over 52 light novels written by Hajime Kanzaka and illustrated by Rui Araizumi. All of the novels had been serialized in Dragon Magazine. It was later adapted into several manga titles, five televised anime series, two three-episode original video animations (OVAs), and five movies. It also spawned several console role-playing games for the Sega Saturn and PlayStation, as well as one for the Super Famicom in 1994.
Slayers follows the adventures of teenage 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. The series is considered to be one of the most popular of the 1990s.
