Storyline

On the cursed island continent of Lodoss, a party of adventurers becomes caught up in the struggle against a plot to conquer Lodoss and revive a long-dormant ancient evil deity. This thirteen-part Japanese television series is based on a series of Japanese novels, and is notable among other things for its inclusion of elements from the Dungeons & Dragons (TM) role-playing game.

Trivia

While most of the characters in the story were faithful adaptations of their manga counterparts, Woodchuck (the thief) underwent some unexplained changes. In the anime he is a fairly nice person who is rather clumsy in his thievery and a bit on the lazy side. In the original manga he has far less of a heart, is much greedier and better at thievery, and ultimately works to meet his own needs rather than the needs of Parn and the others. See more »

Goofs

In episode two, Parn's shirt is torn and his arm his cut during his fight with the goblins in the forest, but in subsequent shots, the damage has disappeared, only to reappear later. See more »

Quotes

Slayn: [Slayn conjures a spell against attacking gargoyles] Omnipotent power, creator of all things, forged by the gods from eternal chaos, throw off these false garments and reveal thy true forms. Creators of all things, become a shield to protect me. Great protectors, do not allow those who would destroy your great works to do their bidding in this sacred place. Use me as your weapon against this evil.

"I don't understand you humans at all... I guess that's what makes you so fascinating."
21 April 2000 | by (The Holy City of Valis) – See all my reviews

Record of Lodoss War is one of the greatest anime series of all-time (Well the OAV version). The presentation was done so well and the work has been put into it was outstanding. The characters were absolutely the best part of the entire series. Each of their emotions were done elaborately and thoughtfully while not straying far from the story. Who also can forget the awesome character designs of people. Such people as Deedlit, the high elf or Ashram, the Dark Knight. The only thing that's bad is it's only 13 episodes, and you wonder what will happen after the last one. As far as I'm also concerned the dub is just as good as the sub too. Nonetheless it's a great anime to buy on DVD, and while you're at it get the new TV series on it on video.
