The Slayers property is one that comes around fairly regularly and now a new edition is coming out soon for it in Japan. King Records recently scheduled the four TV series for Blu-ray release and a new delay has now crept into the situation. With the first set out in December, the second set was scheduled for a March 27th, 2019 release date and it and the rest were eventually delayed.

The three sets are priced at 25,000 yen each and are scheduled with:
- Slayers BD-Box: December 26, 2018
- Slayers NEXT BD-Box: June 26th, 2019
- Slayers TRY BD-Box: TBA
- Slayers REVOLUTION / EVOLUTION-R BD-Box: TBA
Plot concept: Powerful, avaricious sorceress Lina Inverse travels around the world, stealing treasures from bandits who cross her path. Her latest victims, a band of thieves, wait in ambush in a forest, thirsting for revenge. When Lina is about to effortlessly pummel her would-be attackers, the swordsman Gourry Gabriev suddenly announces his presence. Assuming Lina to be a damsel in distress, the foolish yet magnanimous man confronts the brigands in order to rescue her. After defeating them posthaste, the oblivious cavalier decides to escort Lina to Atlas City. Though not very keen on this idea, she ends up accepting his offer.
However, without realizing it, Lina has chanced upon a mighty magical item among her most recent spoils. Now two mysterious men are hunting the young magician and her self-proclaimed guardian to obtain this powerful object for apparently nefarious purposes. This way they begin their adventure, one where the fate of the world itself may be at stake.
