An anime classic; be sure to avoid the U.S. version
26 November 1999 | by (Manassas, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Windaria: Legend of Fabulous Battle is a classic anime movie from the mid-80s--a deeply moving tragedy with gorgeous character designs by Inomata Mutsumi (Leda: Fantastic Adventure of Yohko) and one of the most effective musical scores of any anime film. Note, however, that the U.S. "adaptation" bears no resemblance to the original Japanese movie apart from the visuals; the script was completely rewritten from scratch by Carl Macek back when he worked for Harmony Gold. Even the soundtrack was altered, and yes, scenes were cut (ironically, the movie's closing ballad appears on the American "Best of Anime" CD, but not in the U.S. release of the movie). I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who enjoys epic dramas or animated films, but make sure you get the original Japanese version.
