Legend of Lemnear (極黒の翼 バルキサス, Kyokkoku no Tsubasa Barukisasu) is an anime OVA directed by Kinji Yoshimoto with character designs by Satoshi Urushihara, produced by AIC. It was released on August 25, 1989 on video in Japan. The English subtitled version was released in 1995 and distributed by Central Park Media and U.S. Manga Corps.

The series had been adapted as a fantasy manga (レジェンド・オブ・レムネア, Rejendo obu Remunea) written by Kinji Yoshimoto with art by Satoshi Urushihara. It is licensed in North America by CPM Manga, in Poland by JPF[1] and in Russia by Comics Factory.[2] It focuses heavily on the "swords and sorcery" genre, and in typical Urushihara style provides a great deal of fan service.

Plot summary[edit]

The story focuses around the title character, Lemnear, who according to prophecy is the Champion of Silver. She seeks revenge on the evil wizard Gardein and the master he serves, attempting to avenge the slaughter of her people. (This, and several other aspects of design and nature, may connect her to the character of the Taarakian Taarna in Heavy Metal, including her sword, hair color, and mode of transportation.)
