From the serious and dramatic of D&Disms, we go into the comedic of D&Disms. The Slayers is an Anime that is a send up of Dungeons and Dragons. Honestly, with the dramatic Dungeons and Dragons cartoon in the mid 1980s and the Record of Lodoss War anime series we D&D gamers need something to help us laugh at our favorite game.
Just like the famous video where the player says: "Are there any girls there?" The Slayers pretty much takes it over the top and combines silly slapstick humor with dangerous situations in a good formula. The series follows the adventures of Lina Inverse and her companions as they find adventure and misadvanture in a D&D World, and fight and cast spells in over the top situations.
It's hard not to laugh at the exploits of the Slayers. Especially if you play Dungeons and Dragons. Even when people fail their spell checks for casting a spell, the results can be humorous. If you are a serious Dungeons and Dragons player and you can't handle people criticizing the official 4th Edition from WotC, then you need a break and you need to watch The Slayers. You need to laugh at your favorite game and realize that those who criticize the 4th Edition of the game have their feelings to vent.
The Episodes can be watched through Funimation or Hulu.
