Overview

Welcome to the sequel to El-Hazard - The Magnificent World! Confused? Wasn't El-Hazard Part 2 the sequel? Well, before that little piece of animation was created, there was this.

In 1996, like many popular anime series, there was an El-Hazard radio show broadcasted on late night radio. Iwanaga Tetsuya and Kozakura Etsuko would host this late-night affair where they would answer questions about their series, play songs sung by the cast members, and each episode featured a short piece of radio drama.

Later, those dramas were released as a special CD set and also featured the special opening and closing themes from the show along with a special piece of bonus drama.

The dramas itself is a story that takes place right after the first OVA series and thus acts as sequel to the original animation. A story that revolves around the chaotic wedding of Mr. Fujisawa and Miz Mishtal and all sorts of craziness that follows when Mr. Fujisawa decides to leave town the night of said wedding.

Sound familiar? It should because several scenes from this series were later recycled into what would become El-Hazard's animated sequel. You'll probably notice what material was used again and what is different.

* A common mistake is that the bartender girl's name is "Ifurita"; she is only of the Ifurita class, but her name is "Ifurina". (This is very clearly heard in the audio.) Apparently, however, the character design is essentially of TV Ifurita, only perhaps weaker? Jinnai IS after another "Ifurita" he heard of (which is Ifurina), which may be where this error is sourced from. --Tim
