This episode was fast paced, humorous, with girl kicking power. This episode started a journey which led me to the entire Slayers series, and I have never regretted a moment.
Lina Inverse is the perfect heroine. She has confidence in herself, she strong, with a I-won't-take-no-for-an-answer attitude. I've always completely adored her.
Gourry Gabriev is dumb, but he has an awfully big heart. He's strong, and is very dedicated.
These aren't your run of the mill characters with the heroine being some damsel in distress. These are characters to look up to, and this is shown throughout this episode and series. I loved this episode.
