Storyline

When Lina Inverse and her friends are sent on a journey to another island to save the world, they find a dragon priestess and their old ally/foe Xellos. They also come across a strange new set of threats including a bandit with high explosives, a half demon/half dragon and an alien named Hellmaze who wants to save his world. His world is plagued by a powerful force called the Darkstar that destroys everything in it's path. But Hellmaze may not be able to save his world without sacrificing Lina's. And how does Gourry's sword of light fit in to all of this? Written by Stefan Robak

Good, but not "Next"
22 March 2001 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

While I enjoyed this series, I found it to be a little anti-climatic when seen after "next" and still having that series fresh in mind. In "Try", the plot is more complicated (I got totally lost at times), the filler-episodes are somewhat less good than the previous fillers, and I was very disappointed in that Lina cast the Giga-Slave after what happened last time. There was no chemistry between Lina and Gourry this time =( , but on the other hand, Amelia is starting to get hooked on someone (hehe...). Also, I totally adored the interaction between Filia and Xellos. And I loved Valgaav! He had that sad, pained air about him that just makes me want to be on his side instead...

But what's up with no Drag-queen episode? ;-) I missed that. Would have loved to see Zelgadis in drag again... ;-) The closest they got in "try" was dressing Gourry up as a mermaid to make a virgin sacrifice out of him for a dragon.

See it!
