Plot

In the city of Ohfun, a band of female adventurers is in trouble - they need a mage to balance out their party, but unfortunately, there aren't any female mages willing to take time from their studies. Their only option is the loud, boisterous, blue haired mage, Louie. He is, after all, the son of the Wizard's Guild, but who pays attention to titles anyway?

After an unfortunate series of events, he winds up being bound in word and deed to the party's cleric, who is still stunned by the fact that this goofy mage, who would rather bash things with his "Louie Punch" than with magic, is her "Valiant Champion".

Hilarity ensues towards no particular plot. If a D&D game were animated, this is probably what would be the end result.

Also worthy to note is that this show is in the same "universe", so to speak, as the shows "Records of Lodoss Wars" and "Legened of Chrystania".

Audio / Visual

The animation is very clean and bright. The soundtrack is pretty good as well. Neither are particularly remarkable, but are of good enough quality that they do no detract from the show.

The English voice actors were well picked, Jason Douglas performing the voice of Louie. Having other notable performances such as Lord Il Pallazo from Excel Saga, he brings a powerfully noble sounding voice to the table, with the ability to infuse the goofiness of his macho attitude.

Final Thoughts

Some of the episodes get a little predictable as to what they do. There are elves, there are bars, there are bar fights, and there is a little bit of romance, but the delivery is refreshing in the way that it really has no discernable plot. It ends very openly, perhaps in hopes for a second season, but seeing as it has been quite a few years since its release, and there has been no word on the streets, I doubt anything will ever come from it.
