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.

Simply Magnificent
6 September 1999 | by (Cody, Wyoming) – See all my reviews

This romantic comedy is my favorite anime series. The plot is both serious and rotf funny, especially Mr. Fujisawa, the alcoholic, chain smoking history teacher and Jinnai, the insane student council president. This is definitely a must see!
