... Sakuya... *Flashback*

Yep, Qawool is a 3rd degree clone of Sakuya. Speaking of TenchiMuyo!, i prefer Ryoko over them all.
Hey, a Pattern! Look, it's...
Makoto = Tenchi
Fatora = Aika goes lez
Shayla = Ryoko
Afura = Washu
Alele = Mihoshi
...even the pets!
Ura = Ryoiki

Damn, can't spell right.  >:(  Qawool. U followed by Q is part of my reflexes these days.

Well, technically, about 95% of English words that contain a "q" also contain a following "u" to make its unique sound.  A "q" on its own usually makes a "ck" sound, which would technically make "Qawool" into "Kawool", I think.  But there's always exceptions to the rules...

Now, to be fair, there is a very logical and sensible explanation behind Sakuya's character and personality.

*SPOILER*
*SPOILER*
*SPOILER*
*DO NOT READ FURTHER IF YOU WOULD BE UPSET BY HAVING ONE OF THE REVELATIONS OF TENCHI IN TOKYO BEING REVEALED.  YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.*

Yugi wanted to drive a rift between Tenchi and the girls and created normal, nice, calm, and relatively innocent Sakuya, the antithesis to the chaos and strife of the Ryoko/Aeka situation, to accomplish this.  I can understand why Sakuya is the way she is and even like the character a bit, though I will agree that her relationship with Tenchi did seem a bit rushed and forced.

As for Qawool, I have ambiguous feelings about her.  I didn't like many of her functions in the Alternative World, but she does have potential.

I didn't know that... When Tenchi kissed Sakuya, I just quit watching. It felt wrong. I guess that sort of explains how perfect she is, but still, I find her irratating. But maybe now I'll finish watching Tenchi...

As for Qawool, she has no excuse for being all perfect and innocent and likeable, so I just hate her.  >:(

Well, some people "just are" too.  :P  But granted, I felt she was just another rerun, or maybe a design that the writers of AW (who as far as I know have nothing to do with the writers of any of the others) somewhere in the chain had this idea to knock all the other women out and take control of Makoto's passions with one character.  Maybe...

FYI, her default characteristics annoy me too.  She could pay to at least have a temper or something. ;p  Interestingly, the only time I remember seeing her get angry/raise voice was at Parnosse for a brief second... although I guess it was more annoyance.

I don't know, either way, my current fan-esque plannings actually twist her definition, probably making her more a pathetic failure of past existance then just another "perfect" female...

You inspired me to write a post so big that 10KB wasn't enough... I bumped the max up to 20KB.  Hohoh.  :P

I actually know alot of people who slam OVA 2 and find Alternative World to be a better fair. I feel quite the opposite. Aside from the priestesses' costumes and items having more in common with wanderers than the OVA, the animation, fight scenes, BGM and such are all on par with OVA1. And people have also gripped about the fact that there are suddenly more than one Ifurita. But hey, if you're an Ifurita fan like I am, what's there to complain about?  ;D Go to El Hazard and awaken your very own Ifurita! *EHEM* but I digress, it's a great anime in it's own right. And it is just a side story, after all. So it's impratical to even compare it seriously to the first OVA.

Plus OAV1 and the radio show that became OAV2 are the only actual Hyashi toys.  So there is no comparison style-wise.

Well, was.

I believe it was this that was made into OAV2.

Yep.  There are more audio dramas than you can shake a zenmai at.  

Though the one that Rob is referring to is the series of dramas that aired on late night Japanese Radio in 1996.

The series takes place after the Magnificent World and the story contains several scenes that were later recycled into scenes in OVA 2.  

<cheappluggage>I got synopses of all things El-Hazard audio right here:

OSU!! Thanks for the links Rob and Makoto! I usually avoid picking radio dramas, because I don't know enough Japanese to follow them. And they're rather expensive (plus import books at least have pictures ^^; ). But well, it's El Hazard, so.......

If Qawools creators wanted to go for a "cuter" image, they should've made her more like Belldandy from Ah! My Goddess! She's actually likeable, since she's not the object of everyone's attention nonstop (and by that, I'm referring to Fatora, Allielle, Makoto and Dall)


Actually, I can't stand Bell. She is okay in a way, but i still prefer Skuld and Urd!!!!!! Go me!!!
