Product Description

Gilda leads Makoto inside the Spring of Life, where he realizes its secrets and discovers the threat of world annihilation! Arjah uses Gilda to get the activation password from Dall Narciss, and when Gilda speaks the password, the floating colonies crumble and the farmlands are destroyed as the ancient artifact reforms! Now it's up to Makoto and the Three Priestess to stop Arjah from destroying the alternate world of Creteria.

Amazon.com

This 13-episode broadcast adventure concludes as the sinister Arjah possesses Gilda. She forces Makoto to continue unsealing the Spring of Life, which he identifies as the controls for the super-weapon, the Eye of God. He also realizes his mysterious crystal is a lock for those controls. Arjah tempts Makoto, promising to return him to Roshtaria and even Earth. But Makoto seals the Spring with the aid of the three Priestesses, ending its threat to Cretaria. The filmmakers fail to tie up a number of loose ends in the story: Emperor Dall Narciss forgets his passion for Qawoor and reveals he was once betrothed to Gilda. The viewer never learns what becomes of Chibal, the honest farmer who rescued Princess Rune, or who or what Arjah is. But these omissions aren't likely to bother serious El Hazard fans. As the story really ends with episode 12, "Night of Captivation" offers little more than slapstick comedy: Fatora and Alielle try to seduce the other women; Shayla-Shayla, Nanami, and Qawoor fight over Makoto; Mr. Fujisawa searches for a drink. American viewers may not recognize the nosebleed Makoto suffers when he sees the female cast nude as a metaphor for arousal. Rated 13 and older for violence, mild profanity, nudity, and sexual situations. --Charles Solomon

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.

First of all, I'd like to say that I would have given this five stars, if not for how it ended. I won't give it away, but though it ends in true El-Hazard fashion (BTW, I will say that the ending hints at another series,[duh!]^_^), there is something of a plot hole. That coupled with how quickly everything was wrapped up made me slightly disappointed. However, with the excetption of these two factors, the ending wasn't that bad. Of course, the story, plot, and humor are still top-notch, and if you are an avid El-Hazard fan, like me, you'd do well to get this one. I mean after all, if you've been collecting the series so far, why stop at the next to last volume? And as for the final episode, it comes in as something of an addendum to the series end, kind of like an apology for the mediocre main ending of the series, if you ask me. But oh, if it is an apology, it's a darn good one! This one kicks in all the cheap laughs and "romantic" misunderstandings of the first OVA series. As a matter of fact, it takes place in a very familiar locale, to those who have watched the original, and once you see where it is, you know that it will be loads of fun and laughs galore! So even though the ending needed work, I'd strongly suggest this volume, if just for the final episode. That one had me rolling, and -ah- blushing (you'll find out what I mean). And all in all, Otaku like me know that El-Hazard is one of the best, and it makes for an undoubtedly good (though could have been better) ending to a great series. I for one, have no regrets buying it, and I doubt anyone looking for really good anime will either.

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!

The "El Hazard: The Alternative World" OAVs were better than the second one, but not quite as good as the first OAV, or the television series. However, it was still pretty entertaining. Despite the fact that the story is tied up in episode twelve, don't turn off that VCR! Episode 13, which serves as a sort of bonus, is absolutely a riot. I have to admit, it might help if you're a guy when you watch it, but it's hilarious nonetheless.
If you're a fan of El Hazard, you should get your hands on this to complete your collection!

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.
