Plot Summary

Based on the first Wizardry game “The Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord”, a group of characters enter a dungeon to confront the ultimate wizard to prevent him from reaching an unstoppable power. On their way they meet up with a few new friends who have their own battles to settle, but their paths lay together.

My Thoughts

The Wizardry anime is extremely loyal to the Wizardry game. If any of you are a Wizardry fan then you're in for a real treat. As a classic RPG fan, I immensely enjoyed this anime. While watching it I felt like I was playing Wizardry! (Even though I've never played it.) It has RPG-esk random battles and magic casting. The animation, however, looks dated so I wouldn't quite recommend this anime to everyone. If you're a fan of classic RPGs and 80s anime, I think you'll love it! Also, I recommend watching this YouTube review of the Wizardry game this anime is based on. For one of the first RPGs ever made, it was actually pretty advanced and complex!

Notes

  • If you have a device that supports casting, via Chrome my videos can be casted to your TV. The cast icon Chromecast icon appears after you click to play a video.
    • Most of the anime on this site was made for old TV resolutions (non wide screen). However, keep in mind that most modern TVs have the ability to stretch the screen. Try that feature if the vertically cropped screen is bothering you. Here's a comparison of standard/stretched screens.
  • Is video not playing? Wait a minute or two; depending on your Internet speed it could take a while.
  • Is video loading slow? The High Quality videos require high speed Internet. You might have better luck with the Low Quality version. If that doesn't help, try downloading the movie so you can play it in full.

  • MP4 plays natively on pretty much everything: computers, TVs, smartphones, tablets, video game systems, set-top boxes like Roku/Apple TV, etc.
    • Try it out! Save this movie to a thumb drive and play it on your TV.
    • As mentioned above in Notes, make use of your TV's stretch feature if the vertically cropped screen is bothering you.
  • Another great option is to use Plex to stream MP4 movies from your computer to your TV through your Wifi. It's a free app. Install it on your Windows or Mac, then install it on your set-top box (Roku/Apple TV/Fire Stick/etc.). Just note that Plex will only detect these movies in an Other Videos library because the “Movies” library doesn't detect rare/obscure anime classics.
