As a tavern burns to the ground, the red-headed and flat-chested sorceress Lina Inverse first meets her self-proclaimed rival, Naga The Serpent. Coincidentally, Lina discovers that Naga started the fire and consequently the two find themselves thrown into a haunted labyrinth filled with hellish creatures. Though their adventures don’t stop there! Through their travels the two sorceresses must deal with a pervert kidnapper with a strange fetish and end a fashion war of gargantuan proportions; but can Lina handle all the trouble her new friend invites?

I have a small question, why was this not the first OVA? I mean, this is where we finally figure out how Naga and Lina met for crying out loud. Of course it did happen pretty much as I suspected but the problem I have is that we seem to keep jumping all over the place. First Naga is there, then she is gone, then she is back again. She is like a bad cold that will not leave Lina alone and although they are a bit friendlier to each other in the first OVA, they are not in this. I’m surprised Lina hasn’t tried to get rid of her more then she has. Naga is even more stupid then Gourry and that says a lot. There really isn’t much else to say about this that has not been said in the first OVA, I still like the TV show more then the OVA. The stories are singled out The artwork is the same, a very old style of cell drawing with a bit of a haze to it that old shows have. The grain makes it feel very old compared to newer cleaner shows. Characters feel pretty proportional and of course Naga’s breasts bounce unnaturally whenever she moves. On the other hand, Lina’s waist is a bit too small but in the end, she is way more proportional then Naga. I still cannot stand Naga’s voice. Her laugh sounds like an alarm or something. If I put her laugh as my alarm to get up in the morning, I would probably jump and scream out as I broke it! It’s that bad. She does it way to much; almost all of her dialog has her laughing or being stupid. The same went for Sirene as she had the same voice style. All others are alright, the script is kind of stupid but that goes to show the time frame it was dubbed. <input id="mac_address" type="hidden" value="">
