One can never go wrong with a classic adventure series!
I myself have been on an older anime kick lately which started with Those Who Hunt Elves, then went to Arjuna and now I'm on Rune Soldier (which in the past I only was able to manage viewing the first two disks when my parents used to get DVDs in the mail via Blockbuster Online... they have since switched to Netflix which is amazing for anime). This is all thanks to a local shop -Robo Gato- which has been selling complete series for $5. Yup, I've gotten just over 65 episodes of anime for only $15.

Synopsis [from ANN]:
Louie is a mage student of the mage academy, and adoptive son of the director. But still, he sucks at magic. Instead, he has abilities for drinking, flirting and fighting in taverns. One day, he meets a party of girls (a priestess, a warrior and a thief) looking for a mage to join them to open a ruin entrance, but they absolutely rejects him due to his pathetic magic skills. But he refuses to be rejected, and then he tries to join them by force, only to interrupting a sacred ritual of Melissa (the priestess), revealing Louie as her master. Now, as the will of god Miley says, they have no choice but to accept them, and here begins the whole new adventure for this "mage".
Louie, a brawny student at the mages' guild, is reluctantly accepted by three girls (Merrill (thief), Genie (fighter), and Melissa (priestess)) as a companion for their adventuring party. As the foursome explore ruins, battle dark creatures, and make new friends, they also uncover a sinister plot within the kingdom.
