Synopsis

Five years after the death of the Emperor of Marmo in the War of Heroes, Parn is now the Free Knight of Lodoss, he and his old allies now famous through the land. However, the Emperor's right-hand man, Ashram, seeks the scepter of domination to re-unify Lodoss under his former leader's banner. Meanwhile, beyond his attempts at conquest lies a more sinister force beginning to set the stage for the resurrection of the goddess of death and destruction...

No, it's not a sequel, but rather a retelling of the events that follow episode eight of the original OVA. Actually, the Lodoss OVA are a somewhat streamlined telling of the novels they were based on. This longer, more drawn-out 27-episode television series hews closer to its source material, but in doing so causes for inconsistencies between the two programs. This has caused a lot of confusion for many viewers, although the booklet contained with the series (and the DVD-ROM bonus extras) do help to explain them. There have been a lot of mixed reactions to Record of Lodoss War: read more

Having watched the original Record of Lodoss War, I went into this title with a little bit of apprehension. Sequels have a notorious reputation for being sub par in comparison to their predecessors. Luckily, Chronicles of the Heroic Knight breaks that stereotype in a fairly big and entertaining way.

For some reason, I could not get into the original Lodoss, try as I may. However, Chronicles had me hooked from episode one, despite the fact that the first batch of episodes are basically a rehashed version of the OVA storyline. Fair warning though; don’t get used to seeing Parn and Deedlit in every episode. After the read more

When translating something from the written medium to film or animation there can be certain aspects of the story that may be lost in translation. However it is sometimes wise to sacrifice certain things, and to that I will explain further, but first, normally I do not write a review to the series I have watched unless what I watched was so bad that it was worthy of a cautionary summation to future viewers. Now mind you I did not find anything that bad or appalling in this series, but I felt that the viewer ratings didn't reflect the true quality of the series.

Kind of like this one better over the Lodoss War OVA series, biggest reason being the greater amount of character depth and development. The OVA series just breezed by with its plot developments, leaving little time to develop its characters. Here though, many of the characters get fleshing out over their motives and some even grow over the course of the series. Even baddie Ashram gets focus to show that he has honorable reasons for fighting alongside the enemy faction. There are still some characters that were underdeveloped, such as Parn and Deedlit. But the character depth here is of great improvement from the OVA read more

Anime: Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu
Similar fantasy setting. Swords and magic along with politcal issues.

Anime: Utawarerumono
Both are fantasy romance adventure series that involve an epic war, and I can't help but believe that Utawarerumono took some inspiration from Lodoss. Both are very good and if you like one you will probably enjoy the other. Keep in mind that Lodoss is a little older, though. =)

Anime: Mahou Senshi Louie
According to online sources, Mahou Senshi Louie is a sister series of Record of Lodoss War in that it takes place on a continent north of Lodoss Island. Now, setting and genre are that of the same fantastical plane.

Lodoss = more intensity, more drama and it has more graphic violence and main character is more goal oriented (completed watching)
Mahou Senshi = more comedy with same elements of fantasy, also has a bit of fan service--main character is a bit on the clueless side. all in all, still enjoyable to watch (currently watching)

Anime: Slayers
RoLW is set in a fantasy world with fantasy elements similar to Slayers (some say Slayers is a parody to RoLW, which is somewhat true).

Anime: Druaga no Tou: The Sword of Uruk
Both are adventure / fantasy focusing on a party of adventurers while the trouble of a nation is going on in the background.

Anime: Tenkuu no Escaflowne
Both are great tales of epic campaigns that one would do in Dungeons and Dragons though not strict to any classes etc. In True D&D fashion there is always room for the next adventure.
