3rd series ok, but get the original and second series first.

"This is DVD disk 4 of 4.End of the "Alternate World" series. Will the visitors do what they need to save their Alternative World? Can they find a way back to the magnificant World of El Hazard? Will the raunchy jokes keep getting worse? Will Jinai get his deserving punishment?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, until the last episode. It mainly a "fan service" encore purification ritual with lesbian groping. Mostly harmless silliness, but some may wish to skip the last episode."
Definately caught my interest.

"This series has the potental to be my fave. I like its depth of storyline, even in this tape. The animation is awesome, and Mokoto is sexy ^_^ If you like fantasy-hero type anime, I highly recomend it. If I am not being clear enough, I can't wait until I get my hands on the next episode... and I definately want to see the entire series, and that is just based on this first episode!"
Ho-hum... back to watching the original El Hazard

"The original El Hazard had one of the most beautiful, touching endings that I've ever seen, animated or not. The only words I could use to describe this ending without giving too much away is 'abrupt' and 'anti-climatic'. Oh well. You win some, you lose some."
