Well, this topic has been silent a week, but I figured I might as well post here anyway.

I'm 27, but I won't be for much longer. My birthday's on the 21st of June. The longest birthday of the year! ^_^V

As Rob pointed out towards the start of this topic, I got into El-Hazard in college, though it was already a few years old by then.

To this day, I still can't really figure out what drew me to it... the cover art was not particularly inspiring (anyone who wants to see what the VHS covers looked like back then, I'll be scanning and donating them to Rob, hopefully by next week ^_^), and the blurb describing it made it sound pretty generic ("High school students are transported to another dimension... gain strange new powers... save the day..." Gee, where have we heard that before?). Still, I picked up the first volume of OAV1, and was instantly hooked!

Actually, I'm kinda curious - how did all of you get interested in El-Hazard? Wait - don't answer here. I'll go make a topic for it in the "El-Hazard Online" forum. ^_^

Hey, as long as it's not outright SPAM or online lovey dovey, it's all good!

Off by a few years, though.

Slightly older than me, eh?  I personally wouldn't mind becoming 21... then I'm fully legalized to do everything.  And I swear my life sometimes gives me the desire to drink, though I can't legally fulfill that.  (No, that's not a good idea, but you'd like to think you could instead of being told you can't.)

Anyway, this next May 20th, I will finally be free of any legalities regarding age (good ol' 21), and that'll be fine with me.

I dunno if I want to get any older after that though.  ;)  I already feel pretty old and that's not helping.

Well...here I think it's five...no kidding! You are allowed to have a small glass of wine, or something from five on wards, but only at home, and when you're 16, you can go to pubs!

Really? For some reason, I thought you were a little older, like 22 or something. I guess I get all of us 20-somethings here mixed up. I too wish I could halt the remorseless progression of time. Unfortunately, it's impossible. Unless you're vampire. Hey wait a minute, actually...........

I'm 22 and I turned it on the 22nd of June. hehe, I had fun going around telling people, I turn 22 on 22! lol. I'm a bit hyper for my age and I get mistaken for anywhere from 16-18 and even had a half an hour argument with some 15 year old because he just would not believe me when I told him I was 22. I showed him my id and he was all staring at it saying, "that's not you" *shrugs* ah well, I really don't mind, it will help out when I get older and if I am single to hook me a younger guy. J/K!! lol, hehe, I like to be silly

Ha ha, same here. I turned 22 on July 22nd of this year. *chuckles*

It's interesting how many members posted here that aren't around any longer. Wonder what happened; I highly doubt EHOL would've had a bad string of forum melodrama that always seems to hit the other forums I attend, especially since the average member age is older than most.

Actually, given the average age of members, I'd say that people here just ... had lives to attend to.  Marriages even perhaps.  Wife didn't want their husband hanging around a forum.   ^^;  Dunno.  This place isn't an incredibly upbeat engaging type of zone, unfortunately.  But what can I do?

But still, El-Hazard remains something I cling to to give me hope.


Ah, so I am not the only one. ;)

The single thing I love the most in El-Hazard first OAV is that, in the very end, it is not about saving the world. It is about a boy who loves his girl so much, he won't stop at nothing until he can get back to her. He doesn't care about what others think; it makes no difference to him whether she's even human. He will face the biggest odds... and win. The sheer power of his feeling will keep him going, "even across the breath of a thousand million nights", to the day they will meet again.

I am, I have been since the earliest I remember, one of those few who believe in love, and treasure it as life's single most important thing. It was a somewhat unconscious understanding, however, until I got to the end of El-Hazard. It was like waking up, remembering a truth long forgotten... suddenly I knew what was worth striving for.

It is no coincidence that just now, when I still strive to get over the end of my 5-year long relationship with a girl I had every intention of marrying, I turn back to the Eternal Homeland. I look back at that boy's faith in his feelings, I see how wonderful is the completeness he and his girl found in each other... and it comforts me a great deal. I do not demand something that perfect; I just want my own little share of love, imperfect as it may be, but special in its own way. Like the star pendant I wear, which remembers me of that other little star -- the star of Hope, always sparkling in my chest, lighting my way through yet another night.

By the way, I just turned 25 today. From 1979.10.14 to 2004.10.14 and counting on. :P
