In a medieval sword and sorcery world, there is one mage who is notorious for her power and grace (at least that's how she likes to put it), Lina Inverse. In reality, she is a teenage mage with a penchant for collateral damage, obnoxiousness and gluttony. This series chronicles her adventures with companions, such as the powerful but dumb swordsman Gourry Gabriev as she quests for gold and finds a heck of a lot trouble along the way. Written by

However, FoxKids decided against airing any episode due to the nature of the show being a geared to more adult that kids, and has since lets their rights expire. See more »

Dragon Slave!

Lina Inverse is basically a "little girl" and The Slayers is an anime even not-so-serious anime fans would like. I love it. Mix up Amelia and her annoying justice gig along with Gourry and his true blonde stupidity sprinkled with a ferocious and easily angered Lina and pour in a cup of Zelgadis who is a determined guy, and you pretty much end up with a riot. There are plenty of unexpected twists in this show that make it entertaining. The middle-ages / magic background makes it something filled with action and adventure. Although it's not all laughs, it is pretty funny.
