Storyline

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.

Trivia

Rights to air on US TV were acquired by FoxKids (who outbid Cartoon Network at the time who expressed an interest) when anime exploded due to the surprise success of Sailor Moon in 1995. 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 »

Why does everyone like Lina so much?
8 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

I saw the first episode of this and I thought it was quite one of the most mediocre anime I've seen next to Serial Experiments Lain. The character of Lina had such a bad temper that I couldn't stand her. Which is unfortunate because she seems to have a hidden heart but there is not enough moments for her to show her sweet side in order for me to care. She seems to have no hidden backstory to explain her behavior, she just seems to be the opposite of my much sweeter friend of the same age, Amy. Lina is just not likable!

Lina curses, shows aggressive and combative behavior which I would never have been fond of, not even as a child. I don't know if this is true, but I've never even seen her show redemption nor consequences for her behavior. If I was with her, I would slap some sense into her.

"But she's a teenager!" No. Do not make that excuse! I know some much sweeter teenagers around her age that has never shown such aggressive behavior nor say bad words. They are very sweet and laid-back! If you think Lina's likable, look at characters such as Cecily King from Avonlea, I swear to God, they are easier to care for!
