Man...it seems like forever since I last stepped foot onto these forums. Sure alot of things have changed, (No more MP3's  :bawl ) , but I'm sure the people posting here are still the same as when I first posted.

N-E-ways, so I stumbled upon an old anime trading card game called "Ani-Mayhem", which apparently was an old anime card game using the universes of Ranma 1/2, Bubblegum Crisis, Tenchi Muyo, and of course El-Hazard! So thrilled at the idea of El-Hazard characters being apart of a TCG, I've hunted up and down for the now defuncted card game packs and proxys to create a dream El-Hazard deck. Having the great Lord God Jinnai save the Ani-verse while having the Bugrom ruin the other players is so much fun. Plus, everytime you play, it's like writing a on the spot fanfic!  :D

So has anyone else heard or used to play Ani-Mayhem? And for those who haven't, I'll see about posting some of the cards up for all to see... ^_^V

Ah, yes - Ani-Mayhem. If you look under Goodies -> Trinkets from the main page, you can find a complete list of images of the El-Hazard cards from that game.

I tried playing Ani-Mayhem for a while, and while I dearly wanted to enjoy the game I found that the rules were too complicated and clunky for the game to be enjoyable. The math involved in resolving conflicts between character cards got to be extremely involved at times (and don't even get me started on the insanity of Charm battling!). Single turns took a VERY long time to complete. And, on top of that, it was all too easy to forget just whose cards were whose out on the field.

So, kudos to Pioneer (now Geneon) for making such a bold step in promoting its anime (and anime in general), but it really didn't turn out so well.

I think that it would be better to have an anime card game (or even a game focusing exclusively on El Hazard) modelled after the Magic: The Gathering system. Attack/Defense, and knowledge of how certain character abilities worked (Banding, First Strike, Trample, etc...) was all you really needed for that game.

Of course, another system would be to model it after the Yu-Gi-Oh system, but I'm not sure if the company that owns Yu-Gi-Oh would feel comfortable in letting other animes use their system.

Well yes, even after reading the rulebook, there were some things I thought were confusing. But, within the small group of people who still play Ani-mayhem, we've refined the rules to our liking while still keeping with the original rules of the game. For example, a charm battle is now based on whomever has the highest after power card bonuses and such. Also, the whole rule with Havens now counting as a free spot where you may unload your items should you aquire them from a location. And different colored sleeves are very useful in seting the different cards apart.  ;D

I never got seriously into Ani-Mayhem. But I do have the Ifurita and Priss Asagiri cards (prized possesions!).  ;D

I've been to ask this for a while... but does anyone have or heard about the El-Hazard Brocolli Hybrid cards?

I've been trying to track them on web stores....

I've not heard of this, but my guess is that it would be a fan creation if anything. Sounds awesome though. ^.^

I collected these cards back in 1999.  I have the complete commons collection of both part I and II, but the SP cards are so hard to get x_X (if anyone have SP cards to trade or extras to sell, please lmk).

However, if anyone's interested in these cards *goes into Nanami mode*, I have 30 packs (minus the SP cards) of part II that I am trying to sell off (I think there are about 2 complete sets of common cards in these packs).  If anyone is interested, please lmk.
