High school science-whiz Makoto Mizuhara is working on his newest project in preparation for the school festival, alongside his best friend Nanami Jinnai. Nanami's brother and Makoto's lifelong rival, the unscrupulous student council president Katsuhiko Jinnai, is under scrutiny for mishandling the school festival planning and is convinced that Makoto is plotting to steal his position. One night, as Makoto and Nanami are taking a break with their teacher Masamichi Fujisawa, Jinnai sneaks into the science lab and sabotages Makoto's device, which suddenly opens a portal that flings all four of them into another world!

Upon arrival, Makoto is immediately attacked by a horde of giant bug monsters. While running from them, he comes across Fujisawa and a girl named Rune Venus. After Fujisawa fights off the monsters, a group of dignitaries arrives, looking for Rune, their princess. They inform Makoto and Fujisawa that they are in a world called El-Hazard and take them back to the palace of Roshtaria, their kingdom. Though her advisors are suspicious of the newcomers, Rune decrees that they are to be treated as guests and quickly befriends Makoto. Unaware that Nanami and Jinnai are in this world as well, Makoto gets to work trying to figure out a way back to Earth.

With 2010 coming to a close, I decided I'd end this year in reviews by talking about one of my favorite anime television series of all time that's just as equally frustrating. If one anime franchise has been the very definiton of a mixed bag for me, it's been the El Hazard series, spin-offs, and sequels. Brought to us by the same production studio that brought us the Tenchi franchise, another show I've been indifferent about for almost 20 years, might have something to do with it.
To start, I'm a huge mark for both the TV show and the Magnificent World OAV (El Hazard ...

I put this at dropped for after watching it whole some time ago I really disliked the series, not wishing to add to my collection. a very poor alternate version to a real masterpiece. Characters are changed and highly simplified, new pairings are made for no really valid reasons and nothing interesting is added, erasing what was already well done and making this childish and uninteresting.

All the drama and love is taken out, leaving a really poor and simplistic story. And the final episode is a very poor substitute to the beautiful end the original El Hazard has.

Funny is I saw this one first, and ...

I wanted to like this, but it was simply too childish. Obviously, most anime is produced with children in mind, but much of it can provide something extra that adults can enjoy. This doesn't, at least not for me.
I TRIED so HARD to get into this anime. I saw some of it when I was younger from Hollywood video, and wanted to see the whole series, but it felt more like I was forcing myself to sit through it. It was very dull, like watching filler episode after filler episode, the plot was boring, the characters un-interestting. The worst thing an anime can be is ...
