Makoto Mizuhara is working on his latest experiment in the school science lab, but when he takes a break his lifelong rival Katsuhiko Jinnai shows up and attempts to destroy the device and discredit Makoto. This overloads the experiment and transports Makoto, Jinnai, his sister Nanami, and their teacher Mr. Fujisawa to the strange and magnificent world El Hazard. Makoto and Fujisawa land squarely in the Kingdom of Roshtaria, and quickly befriend the princess Rune Venus. Jinnai allies himself with the Bugrom, a race of giant insects bent on taking over El Hazard, while his sister tries to eke out her own living in the desert. Makoto searches desperately for a way to return home, all the while fighting off the Bugrom, enlisting the help of the Holy Priestesses, and stopping the demon god Ifurita from destroying everything.

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 read more

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 read more
