The recent review of this series by hauptg lacks all specifics but is not a bad overall judgment of El Hazard series 3. The music and art in The Alternative World are a disappointment across the board compared to The Magnificent World.

The new opening theme is a completely forgettable Jpop ballad completely out of line with the exotic Mideastern feel of El Hazard as a whole, and the closing credits are downright scary, with hideously painted images of women's faces in flowers and linked hands circled by glowing halos, having nothing to do with the plot or story of the anime and looking like spooky read more

Compared to the first El Hazard OVA, this anime was trash.

Story: I finished this anime and couldn't really describe the plot to my friend. There were a ton of plot holes, which made the story confusing and hard to follow. When I wasn't confused, I was bored out of my mind.

Art: The animation seemed to go downhill with every spinoff/sequel, and Alternative World had the worst art by far.

Characters: The characters had no development whatsoever. They were all flanderized to the point where they were just shells of who they were in the first OVA. Qawoor was the worst. She was so pointless and annoying. read more

I usually like these type of anime. It just fails at so many levels. The plot is messed up by the horrible comedy. The overall story could have worked, if more thought had been made on giving a purpose for the characters. Instead it is left to a near random and uninteresting chain of events.
