This series was terrible.
The end of the first El-Hazard OAV's was a sweet ending that fulfilled the promise of the beginning. The El-Hazard 2 OAV's were messy affairs that changed nothing.
After watching the last episode of the Alternative World, I was seized by a terrible and strong urge to hit someone, preferably one of the makers of this series.
Not only does it come full circle, it does so in such a way that nobody notices except the main cast. 13 episodes, and it doesn't matter a whit. Ifurita is mentioned once toward the end, and almost as an afterthought. The nemesis dies not by any readily visible phenomenon, but just because--Qawoor's powers of uncertain origin may have had something to do with this, but I don't remember the circumstances entirely. And I don't care to.
If someone offers to PAY YOU to watch this, I highly recommend you consider what would be fair for your time. This is a series that ends in a highly disappointing manner--not sad, not tragic, not even depressing, just disappointing--and you should be compensated appropriately.
Well, everyone else has already said it. You know the plot. So I'll just stick with what I have to say about it.
Me, my girlfriend, and my friend-who-is-said-girlfriend's-sister watched this movie. Even the title felt needlessly appended, only making sense in the context of a single highly forced conversation toward the end. There is nothing that makes this movie good or worth watching, except the basic idea. And if you can imagine what could have been with this idea...who knows? IT'll probably be painful.
Aside from that, it's just...blah. Not terrible, but in no way stellar. Lackluster performances and an ending that just...doesn't do anything for me.
I'd recommend AGAINST renting this one. Even if you're looking for just something bad to make fun of...this will wear you down.
