On this episode, the Slayers fight against the mysterious lawless Variants. Later, a powerful Savage shows up.
So it's nice to see the Slayers finally have an actual battle encounter against the lawless Variants. Also they revealed some story background about the antagonists. Other than that, I wonder if there's going to be more Variant enemies going to attack Little Garden. Now what's the next plot for Hayato and his group? Overall, decent fight plot and another Savage battle.
Conclusion: Decent fight plot and another Savage battle.
