I just finished Rune Soldier Louie. Rune Soldier Louie is one of those fantasy-adventure anime I like, next to Slayers. It takes place in the same world as Record of Lodoss War, and it's a lot lighter fare. And less pretentious, if you ask me. On its surface, it's almost identical to a harem anime: There's a moderately attractive guy with no personality or an abhorrent personality, surrounded by beautiful women! And this one is FANTASY! Except in this series' case, the guy is a boorish idiot and none of the women actually like him, or even show signs of being attracted to him. The only person who shows anything resembling affection towards him is his classmate and friend, and even she thinks he's a total cad.

      The titular character is pretty much a magic-user with an Intelligence score of about 9 to 13. He can cast spells, he's just not too good at it, and prefers to punch or destroy most obstacles. This causes problems.
      His friend is a competent mage who's got a crush on him and sort of plays the same role as Joe Dawson, Charlie Townsend, et cetera. I kinda feel bad for her what-with the whole crush thing and Louie being tone deaf, but think she should have laid off on hanging onto him after the first time she got rejected or ignored. Whatever.
      Next, we've got a cleric who's kind of a sweet kitten despite being loyal to a god of battle, but at least has a spine and stuff. Dunno why so many cleric types in anime are cloth wearers.
      After her, there's a fighter who doesn't seem to understand the value of body armour, who's very no-nonsense, and is usually the first to box Louie across the head. HAS to have the improved sunder and great cleave feats...gal loves her sunders.
      Finally, there's a thief who's kinda young to be adventuring, and kinda weird. Mostly motivated by greed.
  • Cleric: And you're SURE you got hairy palms playing pattycake with a werewolf?
    Adventurer: Uhh, yes.

  • Shouting into the void, here, but if you play tabletop RPGs on message boards, the last thing a lot of people want to do is read six paragraphs of inner monologue when all your character is doing is eating rations during a resting period.
