Louie, a brawny student at the mages’ guild, is reluctantly accepted by three girls (Merrill (thief), Genie (fighter), and Melissa (priestess)) as a companion for their adventuring party. As the foursome explore ruins, battle dark creatures, and make new friends, they also uncover a sinister plot within the kingdom.
This is certainly is a fun series, and I found it highly enjoyable since I still have a fondness for D&D type fantasy stuff.
It has a lot of comedy in it, which is a big plus for me, but also the animation artwork is actually quite attractive. Though as far as actual story content goes, I would probably list this more as fluff series, since, though it does have an actual plot, it’s not really present throughout most of the series.
I do however love the soundtrack for this, especially the OP song, “Twinkle Trick” by Ayano Okuda.
