On a highway in the remote country side, a young girl named Lina is surrounded by a bunch of bandits. She shows no fear as she knows it's no sweat to smash them away with her powerful sorcery and great technique in sword. Suddenly, Gourry, a young swordsman, appears and slashes the bandits with great skill before Lina draws her sword. Gourry is disappointed to find Lina is only a teenage tom-boy, not an attractive lady as he expected. Nevertheless, they head for Atrass City, side by side, because it's the nearest place to find a hotel. Lina, a genius sorceress and exorcist, and Gourry, an extraordinary swordsman, stamp into a world of unexpected peril and fear in outrageously wacky way as if they are temped by unseen strings.....
I funny series, Slayers is a good series that I would recommend. Lots of magic involved, as well as lots of bandits and several unexpected twists. Warning this is not a series for younger viewers, but more one I would say that would be appropriate for mid-teens and up. Overall I would recommend this series.
