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.

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.

They don't make cartoons like this in the United States, one filled with the kind of creativity that this one holds. This 2 and one half hour plus adventure will change the way you view the animated film.
Romance? Its got plenty. Comedy? Mr. Fujisawa will keep your sides splitting. Action? The visuals are nothing short of kinetic. All of these wondeful elements are mixed together in a captivating story of unselfishness and sacrifice. Brilliant!
