* Summary of Slayers VS Orphen *


(March 2001, I posted this message on WWWboard of inverse.org, but its log was passed. So, I thought it's good to put this also here.)
The special number of Dragon magazine (named "Fantasia Battle Royal"-"Slayers VS Orphen") was put on the market on March 15 in Japan(it's price is 800yen(taxes included).
"Slayers VS Orphen" is the plan of making it compete for two popular works(=series) published by the Fujimi fantasia bunko(=library).
I'm sorry. I can't summarize it well. And, there may be some mistranslation and miss-spelling.(^ ^;

==Part.2: Poimono(=the thing like that)==(from P38 to P55)
In the dining-room of the castle (there are 11 chairs and a table). Lina and Orphen meet Voim(he wear the vulgar dress(colored by many vivid colors)). Voim said ,"I am the Absolute and Load." Voim ask Lina and Orphen to become the resident of my town. They refuse immediately.
They(Ameria, Gourry, Koggie, and Bonny) infiltrated into the sewer of the castle. The light produced by Ameria's spell ("lighting") became attached to Bonny.
Koggie says to Gourry, "Without permission, walking with a sword is a crime". So, Gourry put the sheath and the edge of his sword in charge of Koggie. Gourry had only the handle of his sword.
Suddenly, they have noticed Bonny straddling the back of big insect. Koggie was able to interpret the language of insects. Insects said, "We were forcibly taken to here. We want to return. We are tired. There is the strong king in the castle". And, they heard from the Insect(small one) that the cruel living thing(=Lina and Orphen) was taken to the castle.
Lina and Orphen heard from Voim "I want you to live in the town which I made as samples of resident for a while.", "Although I called Insects from another world, they are not suitable as residents. Insects cannot be caught although I want to return them to their world." Lina and Orphen understand that each came from two different worlds. Voim said that I am existence like God. They attached to Voim the nickname "the thing like that". Voim got angry. Voim said, "I want you to live in this world for one week. After that, I will efface your memory, and return you at time of your world a few seconds after you come to this world." Voim introduced two people (Naga and Keith attach the mask made from feather) to them as the perfect residents. They imagined the spectacle: many clones of Kieth and Naga were living in this city. They released spells and escaped.

They arrived at the temporary. ....Insects' house was gorgeous. However, Insects say that they want to return to the swamp of our hometown. Insects are unexpectedly strong, but they are dependent on others. Insects asked heroes (Ameria, Gourry, Koggie, and Bonny) to beat a mighty enemy. When they had talked with the senior of Insects, heard a loud sound. Seemingly, Lina and Orphen escaped. They made the small insect way guide and went to the place in a hurry.
Lina and Orphen had escaped, blowing away the subordinate of Voim who pursues by the wind produced by the spells("Diem Wind" etc.). pursuers were the men who are salaried worker style and did the same form. Although their magic is ineffective to pursuers, they were able to be frozen. However, pursuers were in large numbers very much. They succeeded in assembling pursuers in one place and confining in the lump of big ice. However, Naga and Keith caught up with them then.
Lina kept Keith in same place. Lina's spell is not effective to Keith without knowing why. In the meantime, Orphen made Naga who was going to melt the lump of big ice faint by blowing away by explosion spell("I call the sister of burst") repeatedly.

Voim said, "Your attacks are not effective against what I made while I wish so." Lina and Orphen have noticed their attack being effective against what is not what he made (=himself). They blew Voim away.
Suddenly, Lina and Orphen are caught by Voim's subordinate. Between when, Kieth and Naga had melted the big lump of ice which had shut Voim's subordinate up by 40 incense sticks. Voim forced Lina and Orphen into calling his name not under a nickname(=the thing like that) but under his real name(=Voim).
Then, Ameria has jumped down on the Orphen back. And, Koggie, Bonny and Gourry also appear. Keith (He is the butler of Koggie, Bonny, and Dorothy's house.) said to Koggie and Bonny, "I was worried about you. I was fighting as an ally of Orphen." Ameria found Naga and blinked wonderingly. And Ameria tried to ask some about Naga to Lina. But, Naga interrupted it with her voice shaken strangely. By his command, his subordinates(They increased in number again) attacked to them(Lina, Gourry, Ameria, Naga, Orphen, Koggie, Bonny and Keith). They(Lina and Orphen) will beat Voim previously.

Kanzaka and Akita arranged using chat from August two years ago to December of the last year. They discussed on the chat 3 days per month (about 12 hours per one day). But 95% of the talks were the subject about Gandam etc.(^ ^;) The plastic models of Gandam increased in number rapidly in Mr.Kanzaka and Mr.Kusaka's room during discussion.

[rough translation of p110 of Slayers VS Orphen]
The girl with white courtesy dress, whose ache may have disappeared gradually, dried her eyes by wiping tears and she just raised her face. I heard her name as Ameria. Then, she found Naga's figure and blinked wonderingly.
She pointed at the woman of black hair putting on the strange mask made by feather----indeed it will be difficult to find the part which isn't strange in her form----then Ameria asked to Lina.
(Ameria)".....Lina.....that woman.....?"
Before Lina answered, Naga said that with her voice shaken strangely.
(Naga)"FU! I'm Lina's old friend!"
(Lina)".....Huun.....I'm your friend?.....I didn't know it at all....."
