Ihrie and Fam are just two of the many explorers searching ruins for something called the 'ultimate power'. With the 'ultimate power' the owner has the ability to have any wish granted. Of course all the explorers have different motives for finding this relic, ranging from revenge on a curse-casting mentor, to saving a kingdom from utter destruction.
Meet Lina Inverse, a mighty sorceress who fights evil in the name of... greed, gluttony and black magic?! When she meets Gourry, a swordsman whose skill with the blade is rivaled only by his stupidity, Zelgadis, a grumpy sorceror who's been turned into a golem, and Rezo, a priest known for his benevolence (with a dark secret), you know her adventures are just beginning!
I'm recommending the first Slayers because the overall story is similar to Ruin Explorers, in how they are looking for an ultimate power to save the kingdom from danger. But you should really watch the Slayers story from the beginning.
High fantasy, slap-stick humor, magic, and a group of less then ideal heroes. Unfortunately there is not much more to say then that, if you liked one then I must insist you try the other.
Slayers and Ruin Explorers have many similarities apart from the art style: they are set in a fantasy world where the characters are searching for treasure and even the humour is similar. Anyone who likes Slayers will definitely like Ruin Explorers and vice versa.
Both Slayers and Ruin Explorers are fantasy D&D type stories. The humour in Ruin Explorers is a little more mature/echi but if you enjoyed on you would probably enjoy the other
Sword, sorcery, a hodgepodge group on an epic quest, slapstick comedy. Slayers and Ruin Explorers have all these and more. Similar characters, animation style, and balance of adventure to comedy, it wouldn't surprise me if someone tried to tell me they were in the same universe.
If you enjoyed the comedy adventure of one of these series, you should definately give the other a try.
Louie is a student at a mage’s school, but secretly yearns for adventure. One night he meets a group of treasure hunters: Melissa, a Mylee priestess; Genie, a warrior; and Merill, a thief. They are in need of a mage so Louie volunteers to join them, but they decline his offer when they witness his poor mage skills. The next day, Melissa prays to her god to guide her to the hero she should serve. Her god replies that the next man she sees will be her hero, after which Louie literally falls down from the sky! Against her will, Louie is the hero she should honor and thus, Louie is accepted into their group. He is now a treasure hunter, mage, warrior, and hero?! With little expertise in anything, he can't possibly be of much use!
Treasure hunters, high fantasy, magic, slap-stick humor, and similar characters. I seem to be running out of things to say, liked one, try the other.
Both shows feature treasure hunting with a rag-tag party in a story which seems more a parody of the classic fantasy elements that an actual epic adventure.
And lots of fun :D!
