Slayers Special

Slayers Special (Japanese: スレイヤーズ すぺしゃる Romaji: sureiyāzu supesharu) is a series of 30 novels written by Hajime Kanzaka and illustrated by Rui Araizumi. Each volume consists of one-shot stories (sometimes, 2-chapters stories) about a pre-Slayers Lina Inverse and Naga the Serpent. From its 31th volume, the title changed to Slayers Smash.

Novels #1 to #8 contain five conclusive episodes, previously published in the Monthly Dragon Magazine, while novels #9 to #30 contain three 2-chapters episodes. Besides, except novel #8, all other novels have another conclusive episode, written specifically for each novel. This last episode is subtitled as Slayers Excellent (novels #1 to #7) and as Slayers Superior (novels #9 to #30).

Moreover, there are three special chapters (subtitled as "Slayers Gaiden" in the novels, but known as "spin-off"), starring three well known characters in adventures of their own: Amelia (novel #13), Zelgadiss (novel #18) and Gourry (novel #21).

Finally, four of the episodes published in the Dragon Magazine were first published as four mini-bunko format novels, called Slayers Delicious, before being included in the Slayers Special volumes.

A four volume manga also called Slayers Special was published, its chapters loosely based in some novels episodes.
