    I’ve been following this site releases for a while, and being myself a fan of the slayers series, I just have to say THANK YOU SO MUCH!! ^^ I (we, in fact, ‘coz it’s pretty obvious I’m not the only one lol) really, *really* appreciate the effort you guys are doing translating these mangas. So… thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyou and thank you! x1000

    Just wanted to let you know :3 since it’s good to receive support to keep going. Sorry for any english mistake by the way hehe.

    Thank you AGAIN!! 8D

    OMG Thanks!

    I did not even know there are more slayers manga out there.

    I really enjoyed reading your translation! Much thanks!

    Wow, another Slayers series I didn;t know about. Can’t wait ^_^

    Hmm, after reading this, it’s a bit disappointing. Everything’s happening too fast, nothing is explained, no background for the new characters (no clue who they are), it’s like it’s starting in the middle instead of at the begining.& worst of all is that it was written & drawn by a hentai artist who draws Amelia so disrespectfuly.

    @likalaruku

    Ah, but that’s part of the mystery. The answers (and background) aren’t revealed until the gang is knee-deep in gore, as always. =P And then the story is very, very well tied up. I suggest sticking with it- after all, it’s only four chapters long!

    Thanks for another awesome work for our precious Slayers!
    Keep up the good work!!(pleaze!!!I’ll be waiting forever…)

    I was just wondering, is it possible for you guys to upload the Japanese version as well?

    Nope! We’re here to make the Japanese version more accessible, not rip off the author =P

    Glad you enjoy it! We’ve got people at work typesetting this right now, so we should have the next chapter out within the next couple of weeks or so. Sorry about the delay, but we hope you like the new chapter!

    Luke and Milena are from the original Slayers novels that are where the manga and anime all originated from.

    finally chapter 3!!! Thank you so much!

    Hurrah! Glad to hear you liked it! I’m pretty sure this exists in the main Slayers continuity (that is to say, “Canon”), only as a side-story which wasn’t told up until this point. However, we can probably assume it doesn’t exist in novel canon, since Gourry and Lina never met up with Zel and Amelia post 8th novel. So really, I guess that would have to be a conclusion you’d come up with on our own, since there’s no definitive answer to that question. =\

    This is a very different art style for Slayers, but given how the story was told, I felt it really fit. I also loved how it had a lot more closure than Knight of the Aqualord but had more lore and seriousness than Light Magic (Both are still great!) Thanks Turtle Paradise for all the Slayers =} I caught up to them all at once today!
