Too Obscure For You?
What’s that spell Kavian’s casting? It’s “Dragon Slave” from the anime Slayers. It feels like it’s been a while since I’ve done an anime reference, so here’s a big one. Don’t ask how Kavian knows that spell - the Orb of Fire still has its secrets.
The title of this comic is another Slayers reference. The main character, Lina Inverse, is often called the “Dragon Spooker,” being so horrifying that even dragons are repulsed by her. That nickname in Japanese, “dora-mata,” expands to “even dragons step by in clear revulsion.”
