"Legend of Lemnear has amazing graphical quality despite its age. Too bad that this 45 minute "movie" has bad dubbing, not much of a plot, and shallow characters. But, it's done by Satoshi Urushihara, so you can except some really detailed visuals and a good deal of nudity. The theme song is also good, as is the background music, although it tends to drop in and out of tune every ten seconds or so. I don't know if it's just my copy. The last fight against Veroll and his four (!) forms was actually pretty cool, and had a sweet background song to it, audio problems aside. But as it stands, it's too short. There's not much of a plot to it, but the animation was definitely its main point. A decent rent."
New Take on Classic Fantasy Story

"Legend is similiar to Record of the Lodoss War, but it has a distinctive tilt toward the harder edge of realistic characters. Legend is nearly dark in some areas, with evil lords who actually act evil as they abuse, kill or enslave thier captives when they can. Also, with a seriously thought-out magic system, engrossing and wide-ranging (not to mention multi-depth) story and cutting edge art, it is a must have for not only the anime fan, but also anyone who enjoys a dip into the world of fantasy and sci-fi. I've seen them on both VHS and DVD. And I'll never let them gather dust on either format."
Get Something Else

"Too much rape/abuse, virtually no character development, and a ridiculously simple ending. If you must watch it, listen to the cool music at the beginning, then fast forward to when she's running up the staircase, ignoring the numerous disquieting rape/abuse scenes. The fighting at the end is amusing. Then, take note of the mindbogglingly silly ending. Then, throw it away.If you really liked the part in Return of the Jedi when Jabba was abusing the slaves, you'll get a kick out of this anime; it takes up about 1/4 of the actual playing time. Otherwise, don't bother."

"This anime is a great big fantasy adventure. Actually it's pretty short, but it is still good, especially forthe price you can get it at these days. The animation is sorta old school, there is some fan service, but above all it has a solid original storyline and includes a few kick ass scenes. The one downfall is the flaming eighties ending. Well, you can't win them all. Simply put, a must for anime collectors."
