Slayers: Super Explosive Demon Story

Title:Slayers: Super Explosive Demon Story
Author:Shouko Yoshinaka(義仲 翔?) (Based on the works by Hajime Kanzaka)

Status: Scanning vol. 2

Summary:
When Lina Inverse meets the dimwitted swordsman Gourry Gabriev, the two partner up in what should have been a temporary alliance… But when the two find themselves under constant attack by brutal demons out for their blood, they join up with Zelgadiss, a chimera desperately searching for a way to regain his former human body, and Amelia, a spunky princess with a penchant for justice! Join these four unlikely companions as they kick some Mazoku butt, lay the smack-down on bandits and Demon Lords alike, and search for fine cuisine – all in the name of massive collateral damage! A manga adaptation of the first eight novels.

Note: Our previous work on volume 8 will be removed until we reach that point in the story, and to redo them to meet our current standards. Stay tuned!

*Series can technically be read in any order following Super Explosive Demon Story, with the exception of Revolution and Evolution-R which must be read in order.

    This is great. I’m glad you guys are picking this up since I own both the original Japanese Version and English version of both Mangas (each up to chapter 7) I’m still looking for the japanese version of Vol. 8 though. (To complete my japanese collection.)

    If you guys happen to know where I can find a copy (I’ve checked ebay… none their.) I’d be most appreciative. ^_^

    It’s really weird, comparing different peoples scanlations and seeing how different the translations can be. Like I once found this other scanlation of SEDS ch. 38, and it was totally different.


    It actually left out a couple of important plot points, like the fact that Lina’s magic was sealed and that Gourry was possessed by Raltaak, not Phibrizzo. So it made slightly less sense.

    Yeah, yeah, I know the one you’re talking about! I took a look at that one on your community right around the time when I got my hands on Vol. 8. Personally, I think the dude knew some of the spell names and… that’s about it? Up until that point, I thought fan-made scripts were extinct. =P

I’m a huge slayers fan, i love the anime. thanks for giving me a chance to read the mangas. it would be great if you scanlated the first volumes of this series.

  8. Lunaoh! says:

    YAY! You guys just made my day! Good luck! Oh, and please translate the rest as well; It’s next to impossible to get them all nowadays (and I know what I’m talking about) Thanks once again :D!

    Thanks so much for releasing this long-awaited conclusion to the SEDS story arc for the English-speaking manga fans! I too purchased the other volumes of SEDS when they were released here by CPM, and I was also quite irritated to find that they weren’t going to release the conclusion. I’m so grateful to you for taking the time (and effort) to make this project.

    Thank you!

    OMG!!!! I don’t consider myself a very girly type of girl but this just makes me want to squeal in the most cliched fashion. I don’t even know what to say to express the gratitude I feel…I love you *cries a little* I really do ^_^

  12. ludekat says:
