Slayers Evolution-R #06 — What a Nice Man

February 16th, 2009


Surely there’s nothing suspicious about this situation at all.


To give a general idea as to the quality of this episode (and to explain the relative lateness), I fell asleep during the first half and didn’t wake up until around 2 am. That was an impromptu nap I really could have done without. It’s a shame really, because things drastically pick up in the second half when a pair of mazoku (oh yeah, remember those things that we haven’t seen in years?) show up to attack Zel and Amelia. I’d complain about one of them being a big lightbulb, but then I remember back to the first season and the FLAMING FISH MAN and remember that things could always be worse. At least lightbulb man still trumps Shana’s "Parking Meter Head."

The general gist of the episode is that some guy named Radoq (Radock? Whatever) was threatened by Zuuma if he didn’t hire on Lina and the others to protect him. He’s seemingly pissed about having to associate with them as well. Ozel’s hanging out with one of the Hellmaster’s Jars too in order to make sure they actually take the job, and is strangely protective of Radoq’s rebellious son. Gee, I wonder why. Oh well, Radoq and his son’s real identities will probably be revealed next week at any rate, because there’s nothing suspicious about either of them at all, nope nope nope. Maybe they should stop lurking outside of taverns just before mazoku attack. Or employing robot maids with evil demon jars.


The mazoku attack again.

    I may be wrong but I think they adapted the story from the second novel for this episode. At least there are similarities.

    This episode, and probably the next ones, are based on novel 6.
