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.

A Partial Sequel...
19 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

Chronicles of the Heroic Knight is a semi-sequel to the excellent anime OAV Record of Lodoss War. The first part of the series is basically a re-telling of the events from Records.. and tells the story a slightly a different way. I believe it is the "TV Series" version of the story. The animation is better but I personally prefer the OAV. The Second part is a sequel and follows Spark, an aspiring Free Knight who's hero is Parn, we get to see the original characters and what has happened to them. We also meet Little Neese, daughter of Slayn and Laylia whom Spark vows to protect from her destiny. The animation for this part is great, and it's got a great story just like the OAV, I recommend it for all Lodoss fans, fantasy fans and anime fans!
