Awesome Slayers Revolution update:

Authors : Hajime Kanazaka and Rui Araizumi
Director : Takashi Watanabe
Scenario Writer : Jiro Takayama
Designers for the characters : Rui Araizumi and Naomi Miyata
Producing Company : J.C. Staff
Cast : Same as the previous seasons

There was also an interview with Watanabe, who says that while the storyline of the anime is exclusive to the anime, it will be based off of the unanimated Slayers novels (aka novels 9-15). To me, this makes sense as novels 9-15 have Luke and Millina as the major secondary characters. They would need to rewrite the scenarios to fit in Amelia and Zelgadiss. The result will probably be loosely tied to the original novels like how certain parts of the first half of Next were heavily heavily adapted from the second and fourth novels.

There is also information on submitting suggestions for a new Slayers Best album that is coming out this summer.
Also, a new manga will be coming out for Slayers. The illustrator will be Issei Hyouju.
