Anime Record of Lodoss War


Deedlit
 Share

Recommended Posts

[color=009966]Ever since I joined OB, I have never once seen a Record of Lodoss War thread, so here it is! ^-^

If you can't already tell by my avatar and banner, I'm a huge fan of the series, and Deedlit is my favorite character, of course. ^^ I am very curious to see if anyone else knows about the series or really likes it. I know of a few, but I want to see if anyone else here does. I've read some manga of ROLW, seen the entire series of Record of Lodoss War: The Grey Witch Trilogy, though I really want to see the rest of ROLW: Chronicles of the Heroic Knight.

Let the discussion begin! ^^[/color]

I would have to say the show isnt bad. In my opinion its pretty good.

But I think most on the boards that know what it is are pretty much not fans of it. Most seem to like other shows of the same genre much more. I dont know why, but they do.

I tend to be attracted to animes of this sort, all though alot of them get a bit generic with the cliches of the genre. fairies, elves, berserkers, dragons...etc.
they all are good and fun, but sometimes you need to come up with other stuff that sets you apart.

My final word. Its a good show.

I've only seen 6 episodes and I liked what I saw. Its been a while though and I can only remember Deedlit and Parn. Oh, and the one possesed person who went "berzerker mode" and.... actually, thats all I remember ^^

I just rented the DVD set with the 13 episode OVA...I guess that's the grey witch trilogy? It was pretty good. I couldn't stop watching it, so I stayed up till 2 in the morning on a school night to see all of it. lol. I like the last few episodes the best, and I thought the beginning was a bit slow, but I liked it, overall. ^-^

Record of Lodoss War is a great ova series, however I didn't find Chronicals of Lodoss Wars any good. The plot was changed way too much and elements in it were rather weird in fact Deedlits character is a bit butchered in Chronicals.

So get ready for a rather big disappointment with that series.

I liked the Record of Lodoss War really well, Parn and Deedlit are my favorite characters. I would have to agree with Rick Hunter about the Chronicals, it didn't really catch my attention like the first ones did.. All-in-all, I like animes like this one, I really wish they would make more of them and sell them where I live.

[color=009966]Yeah, that song is really beautiful. ^_^ I downloaded it a while back and was listening to it for hours on end.....

Did they really butcher her character that bad? I've read some reviews saying that it was the best one yet, but I have yet to see for myself. There's not a very good supply of anime where I live.....[/color]

[color=crimson][size=1] I [i]used[/i] to live where i had a great anime selection, (Can you believe there's an anime store in Arkansas!?) but no anymore.

They did kind of kick her in the back of the series. All they did was have little conversation snippets with her and Parn, but other than that, she was an ornamanet in the back.[/color][/size]

ROLW KIX!!! my fav anime... oh yes...fav....hehe..

well since we discussing ROLW, here is my fav chars in listed order from most liked to least liked..

1. Ashram (not the evil one..but the one who actually learned that people need a leader, not someone to rule the Island...)

2. Spark (he just owns... he is young and eager..but unlike Parn, who realllly sucked when he was young and eager... Spark actually kicks royal backside!)

3. Deedo (....She owns...what else must I say!?)

4. Leaf (cute lil high halfling...)

5. Carla (...no one really sees her for what she represents... and she does represent a lot... Respect the witch...)

Ok, heres a GOOD question for all us record of lodoss war fans,

Ok ROLW orignal 13 eps

then Cronicals ofthe heroic knight, 27 eps

Does the orignal 13 follow the 27 of COTHK? Because if so they messed up big time. IT didn't make sence because they already killed the dragon, then they try to resurct the same woman but in diffrent ways? But it also seems like they followed because I saw the 27 before I saw the 13 so I was like, whos Shris, whos Orson, how'd they get there, then i saw the 1 and it showed how they got there, So.. I'm confused.

Help me out please.

[color=teal]Sorry, sis, I can't help. I've only seen my manga, The Grey Witch, and a few eps that Steph borrowed from the library. I wish i could give you more help. Maybe it's like Tenchi, different sides of the series in completely different ways.[/color]

[size=1]COTH is intented to be a slight re-telling of the first series. Trying to make continuity between ROLW and COTH does not work, because they were never intended to be connected to one another.

I have made an intresting discovery. Record of lodoss war, the orignal 13 eps is part 1 of the legend of the acursid isle. And eps 1-27, of cronicles of the heroic knight, is the second part, it says so on thew dvd featurettes, i had forgot all bout em and it explains how the dragon of fire dragon mountian wasnt killed and pirotess returned, it was many years after the group left that this happend thou the eps don't tell you. So hehe ^_^ and since cardis couldn't be resurected then a new way had ot be discoverd using lady neese as the doorway so infact its al one incredibly LONG series and then they have the legend of cristania or sumtin which is Lord ashram and pirotess ect ect.. hehe Go me.

[color=red] Hello!!! Has anyone ever/even seen Record of Lodoss War? I just watched a couple days ago. It was a good show, and the art work was very beutiful, (for the era it was created, remeber it was a LONG time ago). I also liked the music, which seems to really make the show.

I was just wondering if anyone else has heard/watched it, and please share your thoughts! I would like to know!!![/color]

[color=blue]Thanks everyone!!!

Yo! Duorocks17--you are so cool!!!!!!!!!!!! i love this series! it's so cool, i love the ending credit...it's so Moocha (an artist for those of you who don't know) and the whole series is so a LoTR steal--just check Episode 1:
there's a young warrior trying to prove himself (Parn/Aragorn)
there's a wizard (Slayn/Gandalf)
there's an axe-toting dwarf (Ghim/Gimli--check that out!)
and imagine a FEMALE giggily blond elf named Deelit (Legolas)
and they're passing through an abandoned castle looking like Moria because it's the only path left for them, and the wizard must fight a dragon... need i go on?
This is a must see for die hard Tolkein addicts!!!!!!!!!!
This is my first post! *runs around room waving hands in air*
thanxs for reading
from your own

Yeah, it's pretty good. (definite LotR tie-ins!)
The thing that annoys me though is the obnoxious voices they have in the English dubbing! By the 2nd or 3rd episode, I wanted to shoot Parn!!! (He sounds SO effeminate!! What a queer!) He'd be SO much better w/ a deeper voice! ("I will defend the peace of Lodoss...with my life." I mean, how cheesy can ya get?!?!) *giggles* But yeah, like "The Last of the Mochicans" the music is really what makes it worth watching. (The art is often pretty good, too. Some of the better stuff I've seen.) :wigout:
I have to say that my fave char. was the "berserker" dude. How awesome! (His chick friend was pretty cool, too...) :babble: :wigout:
Well, that's enough from me. Any other comments peeps?
*flies across night sky*
