I can tell y'all right now that El Hazard is not worth watching. Please save yourself the time and just skip it. The pros of the show are the first opening which is fantastic and the first ending is catchy (though squeaky). The cons are literally everything else. None of the characters care about going back to Earth. It's mentioned a few times and you think they care, but they really do not. In the first episode, they make you think the sister, Nanami (I think was her name) has a crush on Makoto and that there's going to be a love triangle. There isn't. It seems she just completely forgets she ever had a crush on him. Nanami's character is pretty cool but there is never a moment where she is essential to the plot.

Makoto is clearly just a mad scientist but no one ever points it out. He does so many illogical things but then has infinite random information that doesn't make sense for a high schooler. There is a lot of plot convenience and episode of the week. The animation is also, even for it's time, really bad.

There was one episode that is the past between the wind girl and the fire girl and that was okay.

Ifurita is also a fun character, but even her character is not enough to make up for all the downfalls.

Oh not to mention at the end...
So if you're like me and have an attitude of "No, let me just stick it out to the end. I started it and I'm going to finish it"... just don't.

El-Hazard The Wanderers is a simplified variation of the original "El-Hazard The Magnificent World". The original was far more enjoyable and fun to me. Its good to see more titles showing up, but if you want the "True" El-Hazard experience, find The Magnificent World and watch that first.

If you have not watched "The Future Diary" I highly recommend this show. Warning though, the show is dark and bloody. Hopefully Crunchyroll gets the uncensored version.

I'm in the minority here, I strongly disliked Mirai Nikki. This show is reason why I feel insulted when someone tells me to "turn off your brain" to watch a show. But I guess I'm happy for all y'all who liked it and get to see it again.

According to Wikipedia, El-Hazard only has two anime series to it, the first one being 26 episodes long, which all of them are included in what Crunchyroll obtained, and a second one that's 12 episodes long. Unless you're counting the OVAs as a series as well.

Definitely not, unfortunately. Nozomi only has The Wanderers. None of the other entries in the series have ever been re-licensed since their original release from Geneon.
That's odd. The Magnificent World is one of the most well-loved anime from the 90s. You'd figure it would have been an easy pick up.

It would be great if they would add Guilty crown, Tokyo Ghoul and claymore and DanMachi too!

One more title I would recommend, Neon Genesis Evangelion along with Evangelion 3.0

Thanks

Crunchyroll already has DanMachi.

I'm hoping for Utena, DxD BorN, Noragami Aragoto, All of Haganai, Love Live Sunshine!!, and the second season of Assassination Classroom. (I've seen all but Utena, but it'd still be nice.)

Love Live Sunshine!!


I'm predicting this will be like My Hero Academia where it was added a week or two before season two started then both simulcast (or maybe just Crunchyroll this time with Funi only having the dub)

For the Funimation titles, you may want to check Anime Lab. Madman Entertainment often holds the license to titles Funimation itself doesn't make available to Australia and New Zealand.




Perhaps MukulMalik actually meant Sword Oratoria.
