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!
Akira Kamui, Ai Kamui and their father have a serious problem: debt! Akira and Ai steal a family heirloom treasure map to keep the spoils for themselves, but an unfortunate distraction occurs: their city, Chitose, becomes the battleground for the military and an invading race of aliens! Falling into the lair of the treasure itself, the giant mecha Tri-Zenon, Akira, Ai and their friend Kanna now find themselves in the adventure of a lifetime: protecting Earth from the powers of Zenon Palace!
Admittedly, Slayers and Tri-Zenon don't seem to have anything in common; however, they were made by some of the same players! Thus, though Tri-Zenon appears at first glance to be a mecha series, it really is a comedic jaunt about a few bumbling or wacky characters. Both it and Slayers have a similar tone and feel, and will appeal to the same fans.
Ataru is one of the most desperate womanizers alive, and a man whose life is about to become complicated. When aliens invade, he discovers he has been chosen at random to be mankind’s defender, and must play a game of tag with the beautiful alien princess Lum to decide the fate of the planet! After chasing her with all of his crafty techniques, Ataru finally wins, but his victory also means he must marry the princess herself! Now, with strange alien visitors and a jealous wife to handle, Ataru still manages to keep an eye on his ultimate goal: having his own harem!
Both Slayers and Urusei Yatsura are side-cracking comedies. They feature a random, slap-stick style of humor that keeps both shows unpredictable and constantly entertaining. Both shows also have their serious moments (Slayers more so than Urusei Yatsura) but always lighten a serious scene by throwing in a sudden comment or character entrance to lighten the mood as quickly as possible. Any fan of comedy will enjoy both of these shows.
In the distant past, a ferocious monster plagued the land. This creature of fury was finally subdued when a traveler challenged it to a battle and drove a spear into its body, pinning it to a massive rock. A temple was built above it, and thus, the house of Aotsuki was founded. Fast forward to the present, when young Ushio Aotsuki unwittingly releases the beast and names him Tora, much to the monster's dismay. Now, with plenty of stray demons wandering the city, Ushio must defeat the evil with the ancient spear, before being eaten by Tora as a snack!
