OK, maybe we just have a difference of opinion here, but look:

Central Park Media deserves praise for bringing a great number of exceptional anime releases to America, including Grave of the Fireflies, Project A-ko, Lodoss War, Now & Then, Here & There, and Urusei Yatsura: Beautiful Dreamer. But CPM is also responsible for inflicting an inordinate number of terrible titles, including Crystal Triangle, Dog Soldier, Explorer Woman Ray, MD Geist, and Art of Fighting, on American viewers. But Central Park Media isn’t the only American distributor guilty of having foisted awful anime onto American consumers.

AD Vision has pumped out its fair share of stinkers, including the Samurai Shodown (Samurai Spirits) TV special, the Tekken OVA series, Power Dolls, Samurai Gun, Divergence Eve, Panzer Dragoon, and Suikoden Demon Century.

Emphasis mine. Lodoss War was simply a bad way to adopt a tactics campaign to anime. As for Divergence Eve
