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!
Meet Mink, the hyper fire-haired teenage daughter of the world's greatest dragon slayer... and dragon! With the blood of both human and dragon flowing through her veins, Mink’s life is anything but ordinary -- especially since she’s in love with Dick, a musical dragon slayer! With enemies at every turn (including the half human/half slime princess Vena), Mink must try her hardest to win the affection of a man who wants nothing more than to see her dead. Can she win the guy without losing her life?
Both share the same fiery and hyperactive type of main characters. They're both set in a fantasy realm, and both tend to be fast-paced and comedic.
Fantasy setting and Mink looks like some odd fusion of Lina Inverse's body and Naga's fashoin.
If silly fantasy comedy is your thing, you should check Slayers and Dragon half out. Both parody classic RPGs and fantasy story's and have a strong woman in the lead. Both come from the 90ties and have similar colourful visuals and music. If you line one of them you should try the other out.
Kagome is a normal high school girl who falls into a well, transporting her back in time to the feudal era. Upon her arrival to this world, she mercifully unleashes Inuyasha, a half demon. As if this isn't enough, she also discovers that she is the bearer of the Shikon no Tama, a jewel of great spiritual power, a jewel which has just shattered into a million shards. Now, along with Miroku the priest, Sango the demon hunter, and Shippou the mischievious fox-demon, they must set out to find the Shikon shards and defeat the evils of the demon Naraku.
So there we are - in a fantasy world, with many dangers awaitng, from thieves to powerful deamons. And here, there is a group of friends trying to achieve their goal, overcoming troubles and making their way using magical powers that they have been given. Both anime are adventurous stories about friendship with similar sense of humor and interesting plot.
With the big adventure undertaken by the characters in InuYasha and Slayers the fantasy world in each is full of demons to defeat and dangers to outrun.
MKR is a Clamp anime about three girls who are taken from Tokyo during a school field trip, and transported into a fantasy world. Hikaru Shidou, Umi Ryuzaaki, and Fuu Hououji must fight a slew of enemies, overcome trials and tribulations, and face their inner demons to save Cephiro, a wonderfully detailed world, from a dastardly evil and powerful Priest, Zagato.
Basically - group of friends, with different magical skills, travel in some fantasy world in order to achieve their goal. Lots of fighing and humorous scenes invlolved as well. After watching one, you should try another :)
Not only do both series lampoon the Swords and Sorcery genre, but they're also quite funny--at least at the start. Like Slayers, Magic Knights Rayearth becomes serious as it reaches its season conclusion, focusing more on battle than humor.
While not as funny as Slayers, Magic Knights Rayearth will appeal to the same sense of adventure that permeates the former series.
An Earth girl named Maze suddenly finds herself and her house in a strange and magical forest, with no memory of how she got there (or much else for that matter). When she answers a knock at her door, she finds that she saved a princess named Mill when her house landed on Mill's pursuers. As they set out upon their journey, they are attacked by evil demi-humans and demi-armors - but all is not lost! It turns out that Maze has some kind of mystical powers, and Mill can summon a powerful demi-armor of her own. While Maze's powers are strong during the day, she has little control over them. Once night falls however, Maze transforms into a man; this version of Maze has even stronger powers and seems to have complete control over them. As they make more friends during their journey, it seems that everyone wants to get intimate with the female Maze, and the male Maze wants to get intimate with every female!
Both series are about fantasy with a twist. If you don't mind the bit of ecchi in Maze (or lack thereof in Slayers) you're bound to like the other, because both share the same sense of humour, the same tendency of typecasting characters, and the same oldschool anime feel..
In Slayers there is a group of people who meet up to form a union. The main characters are super strong to all other enemies.
In Maze there is once again a group of people who just randomly meet up and form a fighing union. The characters are strong to all comming forces some how.
In both of the series, the main characters--Maze and Lina Inverse-- are the strongest in there worlds. They beet the master minds in there series. Also the main characters love the other main character. As in Lina Inverse, she loves Gourry Gabriev. Maze loves "it"* self
*Maze is made up of 2 people unioned into one, brother at night and sister in day -- big brother-sister.*
Both anime take place in a fantasy world where the heroes have many adventures while traveling including having to fight the bad guys that are after them. The characters are pretty weird and crazy and often find themselves in some crazy situations.
In an ancient time of swords and sorcery,the struggle to rule the cursed land of Lodoss rages on, spilling the blood of monsters and men. With the threat of dragons and dark powers hellbent on destroying it, the only hope for Lodoss is a young swordsman named Parn and his comrades. Armed with determinination and sheer strength, the band of friends must join the forces of kings and elves to overcome the dark sorcerer Ashram and his mistress Pirotess, as the ultimate battle of good versus evil begins!
Both Slayers and RoLW OVA have a medieval-ish setting, and are the stories of a band of adventurers traveling across the land. Though it's definitely more serious than Slayers, Record of Lodoss War has a similar feel to the serious aspects of the Slayers storyline.
Both anime portray broad fantasy worlds with plenty of the usual elements, such as sorcerers, swordsmen, elves, dragons and ogres.
The main cast is composed by a group of several quirky, motley characters who end up traveling together in order to accomplish their common goals, as they enhance their friendship bonds along the way.
Although there is a stronger comedic reliance in Slayers, the characters really remind of each other and there is a similar epic feel in the overall plot and storytelling, not to mention that both take place in a medieval-like world.
