Louie is the adopted son of the headmaster of the prestigious Magician's Guild, and a beginning wizard. Unfortunately, he is also a hot-headed, muscle-bound lunk who prefers to use his fists to bash his way out of (and usually before that, into) trouble than to use magic. When a party of female adventurers-warrior Genie, thief Merrill, and priestess Melissa-discover that they need a magician to complete their planned raid on a dungeon, the only one they can find who is willing is Louie. Merrill and Genie, having already encountered him in less-than-ideal circumstances, reject his application. However, when he interrupts Melissa in the midst of a holy ritual to find the "hero" whom she is to serve (a man she imagines to be a stainless paladin), she discovers to her horror that her god has instead chosen Louie as her hero-designate. Mayhem ensues, in a combination of the role-playing-inspired adventure of Slayers with the boy-meets-babes setup of Tenchi Muyo!. Created by Record of Lodoss War's Ryo Mizuno, who wrote the manga (with art by Mamoru Yokota), which was serialized in Dragon magazine and Dragon Jr.
