Cheap, exotic and filling

So I picked up El-Hazard: The Wanderers at The Right Stuf, since it was on sale for $40 at the time, and since I'd seen some of it before this seemed like a good way to find out how the rest of it goes.

Now, I knew going into it that some people thought the TV version of the story just sucked rocks, but since I hadn't seen the entire first OVA I wasn't inclined to be quite that critical, and after finally wrapping it up last night I can cheerfully say that it wasn't all that bad. There are enough changes from the OVA to make it more than just a family-friendly remake, and while there are tinges of harem comedy to it, it's not obnoxious. I'd recommend it to anyone, especially since Right Stuf just knocked another five bucks off the price.

It's been a long time since I've watched El Hazard, but I like it in any version. I love Jinnai! Or maybe it's just because one of my favorite voice actors (Ryotaro Okiayu) provided his voice.

Now you've made me want to dig out the TV series (which I bought as a VHS box set a few years ago) and watch it.

I feel the same about Megumi Hayashibara...for me, she's the Paul Newman of anime. Anything she's been in, I've liked, with the exception of NGE and the later seasons of Ranma 1/2.
