I'm writing this review about episode 1-13 of the original OVAs.
The last 7 episodes were written in order to accomodate the GXP storyline and were created over 10 years later, so I personally consider them almost a separate series.
This is my favorite anime...period. I know I'm not in the majority on this, but it succeeds on every level. It is the definitive "harem" anime, while maintaining a great plot and fascinating universe/backstory. The fact that each of the women have complex and fascinating pasts and facets to their character is something unique to this genre. It's heartwarming, romantic, raunchy, read more

The prevalent younger age demographic of today's anime viewer may not be familiar with this classic title... but for the slightly older fan this series brings back the memories.

Like the many generic" harem animes" studios seem to spit out every season... this series too has an unlikely hero who suddenly finds himself surrounded by a multitude of hot babes... but that is the only common factor that this classic shares with its modern brethren of failures.

This series is an example of a harem done right with enough story and action to propel it into the category of "something special."

Lead male is surrounded by females and get into zany situations.

The same person designed both serieses. While El Hazard is not strictly a Harem anime like Tenchi is, there are still a lot of similarities between the two.
