Rune Soldier

Guest Author - Lesley Aeschliman

Rune Soldier is based on a novel series by Ryo Mizuno. It is a "sibling series" to Record of Lodoss War, and takes place on a continent north of Lodoss Island.

Rune Soldier features three female adventurers, and the male magician that joins their party. Louie is a member of the Magician's Guild in Ohfun. He's muscular and a little on the dumb side, and is also the adopted son of the head of the Magician's Guild. Louie tends to get drunk in bars, chases after girls, and likes to brawl instead of studying magic. He possesses a strong sense of justice, and is loyal to those he considers friends. At first, he makes a very bad impression on the band of female adventurers. However, after he joins them, he treats them as equals, and they start to gain some respect for him.

Melissa is an adventurer and a priestess to Mylee, the god of war. She is naive and idealistic, and her dream is to serve the hero that Mylee tells her to serve. Melissa becomes very upset when Mylee reveals that her champion is Louie.

Genie is an adventurer and a former soldier of Ohfun. She usually has a cool demeanor, but Louie's behavior can push her toward violence. Genie is a very skilled warrior, and her favorite weapon is a broadsword that's about as big as she is.

Merrill is an adventurer, a thief, and has quite an obsession with money. When Merrill isn't out on an adventure, she is working part time jobs, raising the funds needed for the next adventure, or looking at any scheme to get rich quick. Like Genie, she is also driven crazy by Louie's behavior.

Ila is a member of the Magician's Guild, and a friend of Louie's. She is interested in Louie, and tries to drop hints to him about it. However, their relationship remains platonic. Ila is also highly knowledgeable in magic theory and magical item lore.

Rune Soldier is a fantasy-based anime that focuses on humor and sexual comedy; there is also inclusion of hints of nudity (although nothing is actually shown on screen). Personally, I would recommend Rune Soldier to anime viewers who are 16 or 17 years of age and older.
