Storyline

Makoto is a high school student who one day found himself sent to a strange, magical world called El Hazard. He is then forced to impersonate a missing princess(an idea for which he does not care for). Other earthlings sent to this world include Makoto's teacher (Fujisawa), his girlfriend (Nanami), and his girlfriend's brother (Jinnai). Jinnai, by the way has teamed up with an evil army of giant insect creatures so that he can take over El Hazard and kill Makoto. Luckly, Makoto has a guide and a bodygaurd to help him get by. Well actually, the guide is a girl who falls in love with every woman she meets and the bodyguard is just a cat... oh well. Written by David McGuire <bdm55707@jetson.uh.edu>

Trivia

In the Pioneer (North American) dub, when Jinnai orders his Bugrom bodyguard to attack during their face-off against the priestesses in the tunnels on the Forbidden Island, the second Bugrom to reply very clearly says "Excusez-moi, après vous" ("Excuse me, after you", in French). See more »

Crazy Credits

The credits for the first episode are displayed over a stylized map of El-Hazard and are accompanied by the music that plays during the opening sequence for the rest of the series. The credits sequences for episodes two through six are all the same, and feature a series of visual gags and references to Alielle's lesbianism and is accompanied by a song sung by Alielle. As the closing credits for the last episode roll, there is a series of pastel-drawn pictures of things that happen after the end of the series (or could simply be fan service imagery) such as Makoto and Ifurita snuggling under a tree, Alielle in a Japanese schoolgirl's uniform, and so on with a romantic song sung in the background.

Magnificent!
21 January 2005 | by au_law2001See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite anime shows, and perhaps is one of the most underrated shows around. A wonderful and funny cast of characters, and Jinnai is also cool, even though he is the bad guy, he is very funny, gotta love the way he laughs, a real megalomaniac. And the bugrom he rules are also funny even though they make those annoying sounds. And I like also the teacher Fujisawa, who is portrayed as a drunk person who drinks and smokes a lot, and becomes very strong once he is sober. A good reason to learn to drink moderately, or not to drink at all. And Fatora and Allielle are also funny as the perverted lesbians in this. The main character is also cool and funny, especially when they had him dress up like a girl. And he is in a jeopardy as well, he seems to know about the machines and technology in El Hazard, but can he send them back? or contact Ifruita? And not to mention he is the object of affection to both Nanami and Shayla Shayla, hello Tenchi! Overall this is a good series that should be viewed by any anime fan or non anime fan who is not familiar with anime at all, not much violence in it, but the humor is a bit adult, especially the hot spring part, or Fatora. Watch it. It's great.
