Synopsis

Sorceresses Lina Inverse and Naga the Serpent take an economy boat trip to the magical disappearing island of Mipross, destroyed by the demon Joyrock many years earlier, so they can enjoy the hot springs there. However the two find that things on Mipross are not quite what they seem. Along the way, they meet an old time-traveling wizard named Rowdy Gabriev, an ancestor of Gourry Gabriev, who aids in defeating Joyrock.

Trivia

  • When ADV Films first acquired the rights to the film, they originally had contacted Lisa Ortiz, who had been the voice of Lina Inverse in the Slayers Series, to reprise her role in the film. But at the last second, Lisa had to turn down the part because of contract negotiations with Central Park Media; and ADV Films was forced to open up a last minute casting call for Lina, and cast Cynthia Martinz, who made her acting debut in the film.
