Plot Summary: Lina Inverse is a young sorceress who lives for hunting bandits, stealing their treasures, and feasting like a fat king in an inn. Her biggest wish in life is to find a way to upgrade her magic powers (which are already titanically destructive). Along with the happy but brainless swordsman Gourry Gabriev, the stubborn justice fighter and white mage Amelia, and the serious mage-swordsman Zelgadis, they will face dangers and comic situations.
