    :bigok: ive been meaning to see this anime for a while and blockbuster had the 1-13, 2 disk set in as a single rental so i picked it up tonight.. i got through episode 5, going to watch the rest tomorrow... there are some strong Tolkin themes in the characters.. but the story seems slightly disjointed, like it could have been 30 episiodes, rather than 13.. overall im enjoying it

    Did you rent the original series? It's been awhile since I watched it, but I thought it was very good overall, even the dub isn't bad.

    I wish there was more well done fantasy anime out there like Lodoss Wars and Escaflowne.

    i rented the one that is a complete story that is ep1-13, someone in another thread said it is the OVA version, i dont know if its the original. i know there is another set that is like 24 episodes, but i dont know the differences between the two.

    this one told teh story of Parn, a young boy/man traveling across the land and eventually fighting to save his love intrest, the elf girl deedlit, all the while fighting the forces of evil in Lodoss.. there was a big fight between Kings of Good and Bad lands, and a witch named Carla who possesed bodies.


    and yes, this was a DVD


    overall i liked it, it was fun but it lacked something.... the battle scences could have been better, but the ending was pretty cool, and i liked but not loved the characters, it seemed a litted dated by now.

    my local blockbuster didn't have shit for anime. it looked like they only had older fanservice-oriented series, what a nice selection and portrayal of anime :rolleyes: i ended up only getting the recruit :o. it was good.

    Yes, that's the OVA. I own it, very cool IMO. I heard the next series isn't as good though.

    :dunno:

    I saw this part in a boxd set labeled Legend of the Heroic Knight. I didn't like it was much as the original box set labeled Record of Lodoss Wars.
