Ratings & Reviews
A classic fantasy Anime brought back again!
by Jon Turner
RECORD OF LODOSS WAR was one of the first examples of fantasy done right in Japanese Anime style. Sprawling a rich and epic (if predictable and sometimes cliche) plot worthy of a Tolkien fantasy and a cast of characters, particularly a spunky high elf named Deedlit, it has been a favorite of many old-school Anime fans, myself included. Thankfully, Funimation has brought back both the classic 13-episode OVA as well as the 27-episode TV series sequel/remake (which is often considered inferior but both shows have their merits). Although the flow of the story may be confusing to some, the entertainment value is so immense that you'll be swept up in every minute of it. The dub is also pretty good on the OVA series, highlighted by Lisa Ortiz in her debut performance as Deedlit. The TV series dub sadly isn't as good (lots of vocal inconsistencies and some bad performances from minor roles), but Crispin Freeman and Angora Deb turn in excellent work. A must have for any fantasy Anime fan.
Just a heads-up
It has been announced that, while this collection will be a combo pack, only the OVA series will be on Blu-Ray. The TV series will be DVD only.
