First, you must watch "Record of the Lodoss War" to understand any of LC:The Chaos Ring.

Not doing so will leave you confused & lost when watching this anime. I speak from experience.

Having said that, I felt sorta rushed thru Chaos Ring. You didn't get a feel for the characters. None of them were really filled out as you jumped from action scene to action scene. The story was muddled IMO with no even flow. Frantic action followed by dead lulls gets one bored very quickly. I just wasn't pulled into the plot & didn't care for the characters. The animation was nothing outstanding & the sound was mediocre. This could've been a trailer for a video game & I kinda have a nagging feeling that's all it was intended to be but, I hope I'm wrong.

If you loved Lodoss War, it's worth a look. Otherwise, you may feel like you've wasted time watching it.
