Storyline

Record of Lodoss War, is, simply the best anime series I've ever seen. Sure, it's old school, and some of the scenes and characters reflect that fact, but the story line and characters make up for any shortcomings one may feel exist. Set in a world torn apart by the greed and jealousy of the gods and goddesses, Lodoss, The Accursed island, is inhabited by elves, trolls, monsters, Humans, and dragons, most working together towards and common goal: saving their world. The good guys, well, are good, and the bad guys: superb. Without spoiling the story for you, I'll just say that Lodoss Wat is A love story that is much more than a love story, an epic story with epic heros, and a real true pleasure to watch, Written by iMakeBoisCry

Trivia

This series is a remake/sequel to the Record of Lodoss War OAV series. Episodes 1-8 start after the 8th episode of the OAV series. They are based on the original Record of Lodoss War novels #3-4 by Ryo Mizuno entitled "The Dragon of Fire Dragon Mountain I & II". Episodes 9-27 follow the stories of the original novels #6-7 entitled "The Holy Knight of Lodoss I & II". Which in turn spawned the manga (18 issues) & graphic novels (6 books) available in English from CPM Manga entitled "Record of Lodoss War: Chronicles of the Heroic Knight". It is that manga series that the name of this anime series comes. Some people believe that the writers and directors "rewrote" the story found in episodes 9-13 in the OAV series, where in reality the intent was to convey the story as it was originally written by Mr. Mizuno the Lodoss series author and creator.

Very Enjoyable! (relates to dubbed version)
25 February 2001 | by (South Florida) – See all my reviews

"Record of the Lodoss War: Chronicles of the Heroic Knight" is an awesome 27 episode anime series. The first eight (or so) episodes are about the free knight Parn, his elven companion Deedlit, and many others who make a wonderful mercenary group. They cast spells, fight evil beings, and prevent a black knight from taking control of Lodoss, the Accursed Island.

The following 19 episodes are my favorite though. It's nine years later, and the knight-in-training Spark and his recruited soldiers must save the world from a dark sorcerer and cunning goddess. The animation is very colorful and clean. The dialogue could use some help, but the voices that speak it are very intelligible and appropriate. I loved the action, and I couldn't help myself from rooting for the the "bad guys" in some cases. This television series is a great find for anime fans and fantasy/adventure lovers. I cheered, laughed, cried, and even dreamed about this series.
