Lina Inverse and Naga the Serpent are once again journeying the world for personal gain, though as always, nefarious forces plot to tangle them up in mischief. An old man is trying make a great chimera, but wants Lina as one of its heads! In addition, a brave and incompetent noble (as well as his frightening mother) hires the duo to turn him into a mighty knight, and the gang hunt for a magic mirror that will make copies of its masters enemies; however the copies have entirely opposite personalities of the originals! With all the mayhem and action, Lina’s short fuse and powerful magic will certainly save the day, won’t it?
