Okay, but do you know what was easily the best part of the episode?

The inners just ditching Usagi.

PAYBACK’S A BITCH.

What payback? Is this some kind of made up making fun of the series thing? Did you not see their faces? How they were so worried about her? Why would they want harm to come to the one who is always there for them? I swear fans today…

The one

Not gonna lie, I lol’d. It’s funny, because they could’ve saved her ass easily but they’re like LOLBYEBITCH. And just before that they were preaching about friendship. The writing in this show is so incredibly bad, lol.

Looks like the Crystal blu-ray has pretty bad reviews so far.  I really don’t think we’re ever getting another season after this, although 27 reviews is a small sample size so maybe it will get better.  I hope they at least complete the 26 episodes no matter what.

Kind of interesting to see what people in Japan think of it. The Amazon reviews are over here if you want to read them.

So, taking a quick look at the BluRay of episode 2…

I feel kind of sorry for Ami. Even the BluRay editor didn’t really know how to fix the scene with her wonky face. It’s way improved, but still fucked up.

I thought they’d at least fix up the crappy long-distance shots, but anything that isn’t Main Characters didn’t really get retouched. So we still have that crowd scene with CLAMP noodle people.

I’m kind of mad they didn’t at least fix Mercury’s transformation. Hers is definitely the worst in terms of quality, but we still have shitty low quality bubbles and that weird gray fuzzy outline like a bad Photoshop cutout.

Also, if you were scared that we’d lose Big Booty Luna, NO WORRIES! Apparently Toei Japan also have no idea what a cat looks like, so they just kind of left it alone.

I noticed there’s still a few errors from the Web version left, such as the fuckups during the bed scene, and the Disguise Pen still missing in some scenes. I also noticed a part where they added the Disguise Pen, but her collar now vanishes forth and back instead as she moves.

So yeah. Quality control is still not that great. The animation (as in movement) is still crap, so they’re not fixing that either (which I figured, but I still hoped, sigh…).

Out of all the manga I collect, I’m definitely most proud of my Slayers collection. I’m four volumes away from having all of the books published in English. :D
I’m freaking sad they never released the final volume of the Super-Explosive Demon Story. That part of my collection will never be complete now, unless I start studying Japanese, gah. So frustrating.

I have no idea why Slayers doesn’t have more fans. It’s funny, it has great friendships, and Lina Inverse is probably the most badass heroine I’ve ever seen. She walks her own path, has her own sense of justice and if you dare to screw with her or her friends, you’re literally dead meat.
