Record of Lodoss War Fantasy Project Inspires TV Anime Shorts
posted on by Egan Loo
A website opened on Friday to announce Meshimase Lodoss-tō Senki Sorette Oishii no? (Have Some, Record of Lodoss War: Is That Delicious?), a weekly television anime which will premiere on Tokyo MX TV and Sun TV on Sunday, April 6 at 10:27 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
Record of Lodoss War began as a series of magazine articles that recounted the pencil-and-paper role-playing game sessions of players who called themselves Group SNE. Those fantasy adventures evolved into a series of novels by Ryo Mizuno that now have over 10 million copies in print.
The novels in turn inspired manga, two original video anime projects, an earlier television anime series, and two animated film projects. Central Park Media released the 1990 Record of Lodoss War video anime series and the 1998 Record of Lodoss War: Chronicles of the Heroic Knight television anime sequel in North America. One of the animated film projects is Welcome to Lodoss Island! (Yōkoso Lodoss Tō e!), a short that featured the characters in super-deformed form.
