Earlier in the year at Amecon, MVM Entertainment announced that they had received the opportunity to license the Slayers franchise. It would appear that they have now taken this opportunity up, and have announced Slayers Volume 1 with a release date of the 5th January, 2009.
At this current time, it would appear that MVM have licensed the original series, not the revivial of Slayers Revolution. If this is to be true, MVM are taking on a fair sized risk, as tradtitionally older series do not alway sell well in the UK, with the exception of the Tenchi franchise.
Yet, even if it is just the first Slayers franchise, this could mean that Slayers Revolution is on the cards for 2010.
Slayers follows the adventure of young sorceress Lina Inverse and her companions as they travel around their world. Using powerful magic, swordsmanship and skill they have to battle overreaching Wizards, Demons and various Dark Lords who are intent to take over the world.
