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.

Episodes 1-8 of this series are based on original novel #1 of Record of Lodoss War by Ryo Mizuno, called "The Grey Witch". There are also manga and graphic novels by the same title based on this original novel available from CPM Manga. Episodes 9-13 are loosely based on the original novels #3,4,6,7 in the Lodoss War series. The story developed in these last episodes is unique to this animated series from the original story Mr. Mizuno developed. The later animated series "Record of Lodoss War: Chronicles of the Heroic Knight" follows the original novels and "corrects the record" starting after the end of episode 8 of this series. See more »

this whole box was the very first anime i ever purchased. after watching the first three episodes on sci-fi, i needed more. vegas gave it to me and this is one of the best fantasy anime i've ever seen! the story downright rules, the characters are plentiful and well thought out, and the animation is top notch! my favorite episodes are "The Grey Witch," "The War of Heroes," (i love it when they show the shot of Ashram holding the demon sword), and "Requiem for Warriors." The ending is great, as well (i think Parn is a god at the end, you decide as well). if you're into action, adventure, romance, and magic, get all 13 of these!!
