Continuing the from OVAs; When Fujisawa, suffering from cold feet, leaves Miz at the altar, an enraged Priestess drafts Makoto and friends to go find him. In the couse of locating the hapless (and gutless) teacher, they find another Ifurita. Meanwhile Jinnai and Diva searching for a new Bugrom homeland stumble upon another yet another Demon God, the impish Kalia. However, unlike Ifurita she has a mind, and a mission, of her own...
I am not a professional reviewer, and to be honest I'm not sure if I can even call this a review, but I've got to say something and I hope it will be useful. First of all I'd like to note:
El Hazard OVA 1 ≠ El Hazard OVA 2
I only could stand one episode, but that was enough to make this conclusion. I was really disappointed to see another failed sequel which I wish was never made. Why? OK, let's dig deeper.
First, OVA 2 focuses TOO MUCH on character relationships, which are so typical that while I was watching I wondered whether it's really the
sequel of El Hazard or some mainstream harem anime! And there follows the second complaint - the characters. What happened with their behaviors? Why Mr.Fujisawa is a chicken? Why Fatora is a perverted crosdresser? Miz? What's up with her? And third thing... production quality. Art work is definitely worse (excluding the backrounds, which seem to be copied from OVA 1), and I feel seiyu were slacking. However, let's talk about the story. Well, the magic feeling of an unknown world is no more, OVA 2 starts where OVA 1 ends. And there's not really much new to see, we already know everything - Eye Of God, Priestesses, princesses... No intrigue whatsoever.
Before I finish, I'd like to add - if you're new to El Hazard, start with OVA 1 and forget OVA 2 even exists.
And so, I finish my 'review' and put "El Hazard 2: The Magnificent World" to "Dropped" with a score of 5. Sad story, but it's over.
