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

Terrible
9 April 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A real insult to anime. After "NEXT" this was just more of the same but without the same charm and spunk, regardless of whether you're watching it dubbed or in the original Japanese language. Lina still has fire and an erratically whimsical nature, but she has lost much of the girlish charm that made her a winner with the audience in the first place. Here, she's just an annoying, spoiled, selfish, and self-righteous little bitch. Gourry, after his swan song moment at the end of "NEXT", has little or nothing to do here except standing around, looking befuddled, and saying or doing the wrong thing at the wrong time (and how could he give up the Sword of Light like that, after all he's been through?). Amelia is still Amelia, thank goodness, but Zelgadis... well, he's lost something. Filia was okay, but I never really liked Xellos. And after a while, I found I couldn't even like the bad guys. This is like the M*A*S*H of anime, and not in a good way. This season is so self-righteous and full of itself and its own bloated message of tolerance that it's more annoying than fun.
