  • After being thrown into a pit for his discovery, Louie manages to climb out and escape. With an army of mercenaries on his tail, he heads deep into the woods...only to get lost. Meanwhile, the girls have become prisoners in their own city when the regent, Lord Dardanel, declares martial law. Concerned for Louie, they begin to suspect that something is rotten in the state of Ohfun. Suddenly, the alarm is raised. When Ila confirms the cause of the alarm is Louie, the girls decide to take the law into their own hands.
  • Melissa's headaches double when a man shows up at the Mylee shrine professing his undying love. It's Conrad, Melissa's old fiancée. Melissa puts Louie on the spot, saying that if Conrad can beat him in a duel, she'll return to Ramliearth. If not, Conrad can never come near her again. Unfortunately, Conrad has become a master swordsman. With only a week to train, it becomes obvious that Louie is the one in danger. Melissa tries to stop the fight, but it's too late. All she can do is watch and pray.
  • Louie has been getting intensive sword training from Genie ever since he joined the team, but his skill has yet to improve. After a long training session, they go to the group's favorite bar, where Melissa tells them about the annual wine-carrying race. Seeing the chance to defeat Genie, Louie goads her into racing. On the day of the race, the three run into Conrad, who plans to use his horse in the race. Genie assures Louie that Conrad will have to ditch his horse in the rugged mountains, but the sneak knight seems suspiciously confident. A huge gorge approaches Conrad and the horse jumps and Conrad falls off the horse. While Maril is in the lead, Louie and Genie keep arguing about who is going to win. Conrad flowing through the river heads to a wooden bridge. Conrad tries to break the bridge so no one can pass him. Maril throughs a knife near Conrad's face. He takes her knife and cuts the bridge with Louie and Genie on it. Maril kicks Conrad off the bridge and he grabs her foot. "Splash!" Later on, the two have a fierce fight over a wine bottle. And the winner is Conrad's horse. Fireworks go off.
  • The group returns to Ohfun. The girls are still angry from not finding any treasure and use Louie's needing a wand to use magic to abandon him until he can find a replacement wand. The girls are individually shown complaining about Louie to people they know in town. They meet up an inn and Ila and Louie meet them. Ila proceeds to give Louie three useless magical items: a cloak that can make him invisible, but is too small, a box containing an illusion of a cooked chicken, and a whistle than can call demons to your location, but does not allow you to control them. When Merrill comments on how useless each one is, Ila comments that they would be more useful than non-existent teammates. This angers the three girls and Louie, perceiving their hostility, quickly excuses himself and Ila. This leads to the girls "grudgingly" helping Louie out when he decides to stock up on gear and get the wood required for his new wand. In the end, not being able to live with Louie's probable death upon entering the Phantom Forest alone hanging on their collective conscience, they decide to accompany him.
  • Coming home from an adventure, the group runs into Ila. It seems that she had been waiting for them at her parents' lake house when she heard they would be nearby. Since the last adventure fell through, everyone decides to take a break and spend some time at the beautiful lakeside. But, when Meilssa hears of a "Guardian of the Lake" terrorizing the fishermen, she sees the perfect opportunity for Louie to prove himself. Louie, on the other hand, just wants to fish. Interests collide when Louie hooks the "Guardian" with some unique bait.
  • Louie and the girls meet Barb, captain of the Ohfun Royal Guard, while treasure hunting in the western reaches of the kingdom. Barb warns the group of strange activity along the border, but Genie assures him their adventure is nowhere near there. The next day, strange mercenaries attack the adventures. Genie offers to buy time for the other three so they can run to Barb's post and alert him. Melissa and Merrill go, but Louie stays, enraging Genie. Tempers flare, exploding into a fistfight between the two.
  • The hostile army gathering on the western border invades Ohfun. King Rijarl musters his own army and sets out with Headmaster Carwes and High Priestess Jenny, leaving a council of ministers in charge of the capital. In class, Ila informs Louie that the paper he asked her to translate is a list of ingredients for a powerful magical creature. But Louie has little time to ponder this mystery as he is whisked away by Master Foltess for a little work-study. There, Louie uncovers a treasonous plot--in which young Lily is playing an integral part.
  • Merrill, Genie, and Melissa break into the castle. Fighting their way through, Genie holds off a crowd of soldiers while Melissa and Merrill go on to confront Lily. However, the swordswoman isn't alone for long—Isabel and Jakinson come crashing through the gates to lend their support. Deep inside, Louie find an imprisoned Renard, whom he frees before continuing on his mission to give Lord Dardanel a well-deserved punch in the face. But Dardanel still has a trump card left to play. Will Louie and the girls be able to bring justice for king and country?
  • The group has made their way into the forest and are finishing up a group of monsters summoned when Louie blew the whistle. After cleaning up and preparing to obtain the wood he needs, Louie notices a presence and gives chase to it, despite the girls' protests. A chase ensues, and Louie is soon captured by the presence - a female elf named Ceresia. Breaking free of his bonds, he turns the tables on her and captures her, after which the team questions her. Louie's simple nature soon finds the party prisoners in the elven village whose lands the forest is a part of. Not wanting to see what vile fate the elves have in store for them, and to show them that humans are not monsters the elves thought them to be, Louie blows the whistle, summoning more monsters, and causing the village to panic. The party takes advantage of the confusion by breaking out, and instead of running for it Louie beats the summoned monsters with a wild boar carcass and later with his fists. They bid Ceresia farewell and return to Ohfun.
  • While visiting a small town, Louie and the others hear of a fighting tournament. It's a reunion of sorts with appearances by Conrad and Renard, for both are competing. Conrad boasts that he will win first prize as a wedding gift for Melissa. Once again, Louie is called upon to defend Melissa's honor. At the same event, Merrill overhears a plot to assassinate the tournament sponsor. She attracts the attention of the plotters, but escapes...sort of. Stuck at the bottom of a well, Merrill must find a way to send out the message before she runs out of time.
  • While selling flowers, Merrill is accosted by a mysterious young man. Catching her off guard, he kidnaps her and takes her to his home. He turns out to be William Wilder, heir to one of Ohfun's richest families, and he asks Merrill to marry him! Louie, Genie, and Melissa hear the good news, but something is amiss. After a little snooping, Louie finds out that William has mistaken Merrill for another girl who saved William's life in the mountains. It's up to the group to find the real girl and make sure true love really does conquer all!
  • During Headmaster Carwes' absence Master Foltess takes charge of the Magician's Guild. Delighting in his new authority, he delivers a long, boring speech to a captive audience of students. After class, Louie and Ila head to the bar to meet with Louie's team. A little girl named Catherine appears, piggy bank in hand. She wants to hire them to find a "Senian Flower" for her ill grandmother. It's a rare flower not native to Ohfun. Louie finds the Guild has one in its greenhouse. He begs Master Foltess to borrow it, but he refuses. That's never stopped Louie before.
  • The townspeople in Ohfun are busy preparing for the Mylee Appreciation Festival, which happens every five years. Meanwhile, Louie has been so engrossed in adventures, he forgot to do his homework. His instructor grounds him until it's complete. Louie works frantically to finish his tasks and barely makes it to the festival. At the festival, Melissa's three fans plot to embarrass Louie in front of her, but they end up dragging in Merrill and Genie instead. When the smoke clears, Melissa steps down and admits that Louie is her champion.
  • One night, Merrill's shack by the river gets swept away in a flood. Disheartend, Merrill decides to buy a house with the small savings in her pot. Her despair turns to joy when she snags a house at a bargain price. The house needs some touch-ups, but Merrill is proud of her new home. Alas, misfortune strikes again as the house turns out to be haunted by an army of ghosts who have nothing better to do at night than beat each other up. With her home falling apart, Merrill enlists the aid of her friends.
  • Merill becomes so obsessed with a jar of money that she has Louie create a golem to protect it. It goes out of control, so Merill and Louie try to stop it before it throws it into a bottomless hot spring. However despite their best efforts, the jar is lost in the "bottomless" pit, and thus the group are poor once again.
  • Poor Merrill. If it's not one thing, it's another. This time, she's come down with a fever. Merrill doggedly tries to return to work, but Melissa convinces her to take a sick day by offering to fill in on the job. "Job" quickly becomes "jobs" as Melissa goes through Merrill's hectic schedule of part-time professions--and gets fired from every one. In tears, she retires alone to a bar with one job left to accomplish. But Louie and Ila aren't far behind, and Melissa learns how to get by with a little help from her friends.
  • The girls confront Louie in Genie's home and Melissia reveals her revelation that Louie is her champion, much to her despair. Even Louie doubts the validity of this revelation. He then uses it to convince the girls to take him on their adventure. Melissia indicates she is forced to go with him if it his wish. In preparing for the adventure Louie receives a charm for his magic wand, from his adoptive father Master Carwes, and sword training from Genie. Upon leaving for the adventure Louie receives what will become a recurring task of carrying the party's equipment and provisions. Upon reaching the ruins Louie is left to move rubble from the entrance, only Genie helps out with moving the final, and largest stone. Louie then attempts to open the sealed door with his magic, but is forced to read some cheat note to complete it. Upon entering and exploring the underground ruins, the group come to a dead end room and begin to search for secret doors, Louie, by luck alone, effortlessly finds a hidden door, and envisions finding a mountain of treasure that will earn him the affections of all three girls. Instead he finds a small group of monsters called goblins. He tries to flee and rejoin the girls who were on the other side of the room. When he is struck on the back of the head he loses control of himself and begins to brawl with the goblins. While he successfully defeats them, the girls have a running dialogue of their despair at Louie not accepting his role as their magician, instead of their fighter. Louis breaks his magic wand by using it like a club. In the end they find no treasure, but Louie comments on his happiness to have been on the adventure. This provokes Merrill to punch him.
  • Based on information bought in a bar, Louie's group heads toward a mountain where a crystal miner named Gonga has supposedly been lost. On the way, they run into Melissa's rival, Isabel, and her team: Renard, Isabel's new champion; Jakinson, a swordsman; and Lily, a Faris priestess. When both teams find they have the same goal, the rescue turns into a race. Out of breath, the teams agree to work together. They find Gonga in a cave, but he refuses to leave without a very large crystal. With the cave ready to collapse, Louie goes in after it.
  • It's the middle of the summer and Louie has taken a job as a porter. Ila takes advantage of this, and while out with her on the job, he notices it begin to snow. Returning to the Guild, Ila gets a letter from Master Banarl, a magician who retired to the Tower of the Four Great Magics to complete his weather control research. He asks the group to go with her to the tower to investigate. Along the way, the group meets the elf, Celecia, who joins them. But the road won't be easy with blizzards and demented nature spirits standing in their path.
  • One of Melissa's duties as a priestess of Mylee is to help train the young priestesses. Melissa goes to some ruins with 3 trainees to help them get experience in defeating monsters. Merill and Genie decide to come along for support and Louie, unable to resist the pull of adventure, tags along too. It turns out the ruins are infested with zombies, and once inside the floor collapses and Melissa and Louie get stuck together. They eventually find their way out, and the rest of the group leaves Louie floundering trying to find his magic wand.
  • While helping Ila organize her magic item collection, Louie comes across a strange item. He plays around with it and ends up hurting himself. When Ila scolds him, Louie leaves in a huff. Ila toys with the item herself and ends up turning Louie into a woman! At first, he panics, but soon her takes advantage of this perfect opportunity and rushes into the women's sauna. But it doesn't stop there--when Melissa and Genie find Louie, he's an old man! With Ila and the item nowhere in sight, Louie's talent for embarrassing Melissa gets to shine.
  • Overcoming the fierce snowstorm, the group finally arrives at the Tower of the Four Great Magics. At the entrance, they are greeted by a Flesh Golem, the gate guard resurrected by Master Banarl. Despite some difficulties, they kill the golem and make their way into the lab. There, they find the magician's frozen remains along with a horde of vicious Flau, mad ice spirits that freeze everything they touch. The girls create a diversion as Louie heads to the main control panel. When the Flau attack, Louie makes one last gamble.
  • Urged by Merrill, the team heads to a ruined estate to search for treasure. There, they meet Isabel and her team. The swordsman, Jakinson, recounts some history to discredit Merrill's claim, but the two teams decide to investigate anyways, hoping to gain some adventure from the outing. They find it in spades. The adventurers fight their way through hordes of monsters to the heart of the ruin's basement, where they discover a farm for magical creatures. The ancient magic, said to be lost ages ago, is very much alive and well--and very deadly.
