In the land of Kuruda, warriors with magical powers and incredible fighting skills battle for the ultimate prize: the title of Sevaar, the strongest warrior in the land. Elle Ragu, nicknamed Shadow Skill, is the newest Sevaar to emerge, but that doesn't make her life any easier.

Some years into the future, a strange, unexplainable natural disaster has broken off a piece of the Japanese mainland. Known as the Lost Ground, it is now inhabited by people with Alters -- machine-like extensions of their own will. In order to keep the peace on the Lost Ground, the HOLY organization uses its own Alter capabilists to police the region. In the midst of the chaos is a young man named Kazuma, whose life will soon change forever as he discovers his hidden abilities, and how to wield them.
Pure action and not so much character development is the theme of Shadow Skill and Scryed. Senseless fighting for one cause or another, enemies everywhere, opressed people who need help against a greater force, and mystic powers that are constantly honed to become even greater... THAT is what these two series are mainly all about.
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!
It may sound a bit weird for those who know both anime's, but i really see a resemblance in Elle Ragu and Lina Inverse, they both have quite a temper and tend to be clumsy, also Megumi Hayashibara voiced both characters.
The storylines are also somewhat alike, for eksamble the epic timeline setting and how they both travel aimlessly around in the world fighting for either fame or greed.
Either way, if you like Megumi Hayashibara's awesome voice and 90th anime's, i can recommend both.
