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 »

Quotes

Lina Inverse: Darkness beyond twilight, crimson beyond blood that flows, buried in the flow of time is where your power grows. I pledge myself to conquer all the foes who stand in front of this mighty gift bestowed in my unworthy hand. Let the fools who stand before us be destroyed by the power you and I possess. Dragon Slave!

"Light come forth!!!"
28 December 2003 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

While I would not consider this the greatest anime of all times, it sure is a fine series.

Lina's magic, Gourry's swordsmanship (not his brains), Zelgadis's cool head, and Amelia's hyper-active sense of Justice make this a fun cast of characters to follow on their adventures.

Anyone who likes magical characters, goofy quests, or red-headed heroes will like this series.
