Movie Reviews

Hooray! A worthy successor to the original!!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was a fan of El-Hazard since the re-releasing of the first OAV series. The humor, action, and romance of the series has captivated me, and still does to this day (Though El-Hazard 2 was somewhat disappointing, I'll admit, it had its good points). And now this third TV series is truly a worthy successor in the continuing adventures of Makoto and the gang (especially with a new priestess of water taking over for Miz, and she is REALLY cute to boot!). I, myself, can't wait to acquire all of this series; to me, it shines as brightly as the original (though with only a slightly lower quality of animation from the original). And as previously stated, if you ARE an anime neophyte, watch the first and second series, and then be ABSOULUTELY sure to get this one. I guarantee, neophyte or not, you won't regret it!"
Great comeback after OAV2; lots of fun for fans of the show!
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I simply adored the first OAV series, but was EXTREMELY dissapointed with OAV2. But this series has, honestly, restored my faith in the show (so far). All the characters are back, along with some new faces; the terrific Pioneer dubbing is up to fact, I'll go as far as to say that this is THE best dub yet. And it's just lots and lots of fun...with great animation, to boot! One thing: please, do NOT see this series without having seen the first OAV series first. There's no "what happened before" explanation, so you'll be very confused. The second OAV is VERY optinional, won't miss anything.;)"
3rd series ok, but get the original and second series first.

"This is DVD disk 1 of 4.The series continues with more than a few of the cast from El Hazard getting transported to an alternate dimension version of the El Hazard we've become familiar with.It's nice to see the characters adapt to their new roles. For some of them, it's their first time, for the earthlings it's their second. Don't want to provide too many details that will spoil your experience other than a hint that the ancient weapons are resolved a bit differently in this series.Technically, this series lacks some of quality of the original series, but it's still worthwhile for die hard El Hazard fans.Continuity Notes: El Hazard the "Alternative World" is the 3rd El Hazard series. The original "Magnificent World" is the best, so start out with that one. The "Alternative World" series is continuation of "Magnificent World" and is not part of the "Wanderers" series.Cautions: This series is the most adult of any of the El Hazard series. Lots of sexual inuendo like a sitcom, but nothing really happens."
You don't have to see the OAV to enjoy this

"The Alternative World is, acccording to the AIC site, the first TV version of the El Hazard series. It has 13 epidsodes on 4 DVDs, ... US.
Visually speaking, the colors are brilliant with slightly too much red for my eyes (a product of aging and improper equipment set-up). The quality of the art is excellent, and attention to details is good.
Audio wise, the English dub is good (Pioneer has done well with all it's English versions). Unlike some translations, the story works well in English.
The story is easy to follow, even if you haven't seen the original version. I was able to understand what was going on, who was who, and the basic point of the plot. The situations are slightly adult in nature, but it doesn't mean that a younger viewer won't enjoy the series. Overall, the story is funny and entertaining."
