Here's the summary.... but i guess its kinda confusing

The story focuses on four people from our world (High school students Makoto Mizuhara, Katsuhiko Jinnai and Nanami Jinnai, and History teacher Masamichi Fujisawa) who are mysteriously transported to the fantastical world of El-Hazard, which is threatened with a massive war between the human nations on one side and the insectoid Bugrom tribe on the other. To add further complexity, the quartet's transportation has a side effect, in that each of them gains a unique special ability. For instance, Katsuhiko gains the power to communicate with the Bugrom, and subsequently uses his power to become the Bugrom's military leader while his sister can see through illusions. The hard-drinking, chain-smoking Fujisawa, on the other hand, gains superhuman strength and athletic ability, but only when he's sober. Makoto's power comes much later but he learns he can control the ancient technology of that world which range from minor gadgets to the most powerful weapons.

The central conflict in El-Hazard: The Magnificent World focuses on Makoto, who along with Nanami, Mr. Fujisawa and human residents of El-Hazard fight against Jinnai's conquest, but other, more sinister machinations lie below the surface. The Wanderers is a simplified version of the original OVA storyline, stretched to twenty-six episodes and eliminates or alters several of the OVA's major characters. El-Hazard: The Magnificent World 2 sees Makoto and the others continuing on in their lives in El-Hazard, when Mr. Fujisawa suddenly runs off, having gotten cold feet the night before his wedding. El-Hazard: The Alternative World follows up with the actual wedding, but the cast is then thrust into another world for a second time; the militant world of Creteria.


I think you covered it well.

El Hazard was an entertaining anime at the time. The original 7 OVA series with it's time travel element and a gorgeous mysterious heroine/villainess was probably the best. Most of the later material seems to be an attempt to cash in on the original's success. They lack substance by comparison but are good if you, like many watchers of certain classics, got addicted to the characters and wanted to see more of them.

Back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, El Hazard was a big part of a small fandom. Not knowing what the image at the start of this thread was would have been enough to make angry Otaku break your sword over their knee and forcibly remove your fan stripes. It was a sin comparable to not recognising characters from Bubble Gum Crisis (the original) or not knowing what a cabbit was. ;]

this is one of the all time classics of anime. the mix of humor, romance, action and overall plot is one of the best.
when I started collecting anime 4 years ago it was among the first of my collection is one of my favorites. did not care much for the second season and I still need to see the alternative world season. I would give this 4/5 for those of you who have see Escaflowne the series, or Record of Lodoss War will also like this series
