Philionel wakes up, and realizes Xelloss is standing over him. He thinks for a moment, then panics when he realizes Amelia and Lina are gone. Xelloss mentions that they should be right up there in that island hovering overhead. Philionel, determined to protect his daughter, tries to leap there. Of course, he fails...

Lina still has the Sword of Light, and she challenges Kanzeil to make his next move. So he does, raining down blast after blast of energy upon his four challengers. Zelgadis catches him off-guard with his Ra-Tilt spell... but of course, things wouldn't be that easy! Kanzeil, like many Mazoku, is a master of teleportation, and soon re-emerges from behind the group and rains down on them again, reappearing directly above Amelia with a stomp kick...

Martina, meanwhile, is selling pendants in the image of Zoamel Gustav, in nearby Saillune. When she finally gets a decent amount of money, she runs up to her "Xelloss-sama" with the cash as a gift for him... but she drops it, as she falls into a mud puddle. Philionel, meanwhile, is still determined to return to Amelia's side, but Xelloss refuses to take him to the battlefield. Of Lina's abilities, he says, "If they can't resolve this kind of situation, then how could they......"

Lina blocks Kanzeil's stomp, irritated at the trembling Amelia. They fight some more, and Kanzeil is just too much for the party! Eventually, Kanzeil even knocks a corner of the floating island away, and Lina finds herself perched precariously on the edge! Kanzeil knocks her off, knowing that Lina's magic is still weakened, if not eliminated, by the curse placed upon her, and Lina careens to her doom.

Gourry is enraged, and starts to turn on Kanzeil, when who shows up but... Lina? She nukes Kanzeil with the Dragu Slave from behind. I think her explanation is that when Mazenda died, her curse was lifted, and thus Lina can cast all her usual tricks again. Good thing, too, because by the end of this conversation, Kanzeil, again the master of teleportation, is back, showing his true form. And he uses his teleportation ability well, attacking the group from every possible angle. Lina realizes that with Kanzeil moving so quickly, she can't possibly target him for the Dragu Slave again, and she decides to resort to the more unpredictable Laguna Blade again. She charges Kanzeil, and of course he dimension-hops away before the Laguna Blade hits... but it seems that the Laguna Blade crosses dimensional barriers and kills him anyways!

But, with Kanzeil gone, there's nothing holding up the island. So it starts to fall - the mages fly off, Lina carrying Gourry, and they try to think of a plan. Xelloss reminds Lina that the talismans act as boosters for her magical ability, and tries to snap her out of her nervous panic. Lina comes to her senses and Boosts her power with the talismans, then unleashes the superpowered Dragu Slave on the falling island, obliterating it completely! Only, the spell hit a little bit too close to the ground and wipes out a small chunk of Saillune, as well. At least it was better than having the island collide and start a whole lot more damage, I suppose...


Episode #14

Lina and Amelia jump into a pool. Seems they're taking a break after their encounter with Kanzeil and Mazenda, but it's actually a business deal. Lina offers this guy a thousand for a particular map, but he demands nine thousand. She insists on one. He keeps his price high. So she throws in a bonus. A thousand plus a fireball. *THOOM* She gets the map from the toasty people with little resistance.

Apparently, the map leads to a place where a particularly powerful spell can be learned. So Lina and the others follow it. On the way they get surrounded by bandits, dispatched with another fireball. but on the way she runs into two twin sisters (who look remarkably like Shampoo from Ranma 1/2!) with a similar map. In fact, it's identical. Since they're both at the place where the road supposedly forks, they start arguing over who gets to go in. Lina and Amelia start bickering with the sisters, then spells start to fly against the martial-arts sisters. Gourry just happens to find the secret path, though, which the map indicates. Lina notices this, blows off the two sisters (literally, with Diem Wing!), and dashes into the secret entrance. However, she runs into the others and they all tumble down the hill...

Anyways, they find a temple of some sorts, but a weird mask is guarding it. (No, it's not Zoamel Gustav, thank god.) And it refuses to let them pass, of course. So someone bonks it upside the head with a fan. Unfortunately, it's the Shampoo Sisters (yes, my nickname ^^;), which means they're awake. Oh, guess what, the bandits are back too. But, of course, the group effortlessly knocks them aside again, and, with the mask [strangely] out of the way, the group proceeds inside.

There is a songbook lying on an altar there, along with two dresses. Apparently, the would-be spellcasters have to wear the dresses (which look suspiciously like Sailor Mercury's and Chibi-Usa's) and sing a song. But hey, guess who's back but the sisters, the bandits, and the mask. *sigh* Amelia suggests that she and Lina go ahead and sing. But they need backup. Zelgadiss?

Amelia and Lina sing a crowd-stopping song, with Zel giving them directions and the lyrics. And, well, the spell is triggered. Unfortunately, it seems to be a spell which only stops crowds with lights and special effects. Lina gets severely annoyed and Dragu-Slaves the place.

Only, it's not over yet, of course. Someone seems to be mocking Lina's song. Yep, Martina's there, with Xelloss, and Martina's yukking it up. To Lina, there's only one way to shut people up, and that's by frying them... "DRAGU SLAVE!!!!"
