X-DAY! The Demon Beast Is Reborn!
|Japan||September 15, 1995|
X-DAY! The Beast is Reborn! (Japanese: X-DAY よみがえる魔獣!, lit. X-DAY Yomigaeru majū!) is the 24th episode of Slayers. It was first broadcast in Japan on September 15, 1995.
Lina and the others really don't have much they can do except to hope for the best. Gourry's Sword of Light fails, despite the legend of the Swordsman of Light being able to slay the demon beast Zanaffar. Magic refuses to penetrate as well. Copy Rezo throws relentless attack spells against them, without expending much effort.
However, just as they are covered with debris and rocks from the force of the spells, Copy Rezo stops, demanding that they fight him with all their power. His true goal was to surpass Rezo, after all. He needed them to fight and die at their best, to surpass the original.
They tell Copy Rezo that they can't really fight with all their might in a narrow place like the lab. Copy Rezo gladly obliges, as he levitates them away from danger and demolishes the lab in one single spell.
An attack plan is put into place and it happens to be... RUN! Lina take this time to Ray Wing it out of there, but then find that they won't be able to escape for long, so they all throw seemingly meaningless spells at him. All of this was to distract him as Lina goes underground and attacks him with a Dragon Slave from directly underneath! She claims that even his shield can't hold up against a close range Dragon Slave.
Despite her boasting, the shield does hold up as Copy Rezo tells her that he absorbed the spell. Then, Copy Rezo demands that she perform her Giga Slave, because it was that spell that defeated Rezo, and it is by that spell that he can surpass Rezo.
At first Lina rejects his offer, but then Copy Rezo begins to brutally beat up Lina's friends, excluding Sylphiel. Shortly after seeing Gourry in pain on the ground, she decides to cast the spell. Sylphiel stops her in the middle, which angers Copy Rezo.
Apparently, using the same spell he used to kill Eris, he fires the spell at Sylphiel, only... Lina jumps in the way, to save Sylphiel! Sylphiel looks horrified as she watches the blood seep from the wound quickly.
