Deltora Quest (デルトラ・クエスト Derutora Kuesuto?) is a Japanese anime series based on the series of children's books of the same name, written by Australian author Emily Rodda. It was announced by Rodda herself at Sydney's Book Council of Australia Conference and at an ABC Kids convention. The series was produced by Genco and SKY Perfect Well Think. The show is on TV-Aichi every Saturday from 8:00 am to 8:30 am, and the English version, produced by Blue Water Studios in association with Ocean Productions and Dentsu, began airing on May 1 for Cartoon Network Australia/New Zealand (9:00 am to 9:50 am on Weekends), and premiered in the United States on The Hub, a new TV network owned by Discovery Channel and Hasbro replacing Discovery Kids, on October 10, 2010 as part of its original programming lineup.

Story

The Shadow Lord, an evil sorcerer and The Lord of Shadows which comes from The Shadowlands, has taken over Deltora by destroying a magical object known as The Belt of Deltora, which is Deltora's only protection against him. Throughout the course of the anime, Lief, Barda and Jasmine travel around the land of Deltora to return the seven gems (the Diamond, Emerald, Lapis Lazuli, Topaz, Opal, Ruby and the Amethyst, the initials of which combine to form DELTORA, hence the name Deltora Quest) to the belt and save the land. Their first destination is the Forests of Silence.

After destroying the guardian Gorl, they find the Topaz and continue to the Lake of Tears. Along the way, they meet Manus and with his help defeat Jin and Jod, two of the sorceress Thaegan's thirteen children. Eventually, they fight with Thaegan and retrieve the Ruby. Thaegan is defeated when Jasmine's raven, Kree, creates a cut in her finger, causing her to lose blood. Since Thaegan is a witch, she instantly dies as a result of it.

The trio are then trapped by Thaegan's remaining eleven children, but manage to fool them and run away. Then, they visit Tom's mysterious shop and meet a scar-faced man, Doom. Later on they manage to reach the City of Rats. Lief, Barda and Jasmine get the Opal and enter the deadly Rithmere Championships. Jasmine wins, and then they are subsequently captured. With the help of the mysterious Doom, they manage to escape and reach the Shifting Sands, where they obtain the Lapis Lazuli. Thaegan and her eleven children are reborn from Flanwass's bags but Lief, Barda and Jasmine manage to defeat them again.

They travel to Dread Mountain, passing through Gellick with the help of the Kins. They go on the River Queen, but end up finding out that a few of the passengers were Ols. To avoid putting the other passengers in danger, the trio are dropped off nearby. They go into the Maze of the Beast and are able to find the Amethyst, barely escaping the slug-like Glus. Thaegan returns and is defeated with twelve of her children, Ichabod injured. They meet Oacus and help him escape. They rescue Dain and find Tora. They then journey to the Valley of the Lost and defeat the guardian. However, Neridah, who stole the diamond, was captured by Oacus who they defeated. After a series of epic battles on the way to Del and in Del the Shadow Lord is finally defeated.

It was directed by Mitsuru Hongō (Spirit of Wonder, Outlaw Star), designed by Hiroyuki Nishimura and Junya Ishigaki, and written by Oketani Arawa, Reiko Yoshida and Natsuko Takahashi. The music was composed by Kow Otani, but was replaced with an original soundtrack in the English version.
