In the distant future, the world has become barren and dry with deserts encompassing most of the land, making water the most precious of resources. It is in this world that three travellers wander the land, wanting not much more than to survive.

In an ancient time of swords and sorcery,the struggle to rule the cursed land of Lodoss rages on, spilling the blood of monsters and men. With the threat of dragons and dark powers hellbent on destroying it, the only hope for Lodoss is a young swordsman named Parn and his comrades. Armed with determinination and sheer strength, the band of friends must join the forces of kings and elves to overcome the dark sorcerer Ashram and his mistress Pirotess, as the ultimate battle of good versus evil begins!
Both are shows about dark fantasy worlds and follow a small group of heroes. The character designs are quite interesting and similar in both and they also take place in torn apart worlds. In Weathering Continent this is literal as we see the aftermath of centuries of natural disaster, and in Lodoss War we witness the conflict between good and evil. Weathering Continent has a more unique flair, whereas Lodoss War is quintessential fantasy - dragons, kings, knights, sorcerers - however, both are executed fairly well for their given length. Check the other out if you want another fantasy world to escape into!
