Glad to see another of the old guard stop on by. To think, we've almost got enough for a small party to throw for the old gal.

Would love to have someone on this side of the great pond pick up the BR set. Nozomi's already been in for The Wanderers DVDs, they should pick up the rest while they're at it.

A pleasure to see another older member pop on by, hello from a new face.

I wish I had the money to spend for the set right now, but until then some teaser screenshots will have to do.

Regardless of the time of death, I still check in once a week or so, just in case.  ;)

Well well well, it looks like the goddesses have heard my call. Blu-Ray set is back on track for release July 30th.

Like Ray above, I came into El-Hazard years on down the line after being familiar with Hayashi's other works. His work on Bubblegum Crisis: Tokyo 2040, Battle Programmer Shirase but most especially his time with the Tenchi Muyo series. It wasn't until I was doing some peeking around his production credits that I came across El-Hazard and remembered seeing VHS' and DVD's for it floating around the usual joints back in the day (RIP Suncoast). Soon as I knew it had his magic touch in it I decided it was finally time.

It was really unusual to see how little of an online presence this series has. I guess it is the cost of having come out before the internet had really taken off. Even the facebook pages were woefully inactive.

I think one of the biggest problems with El-Hazard is the fact that no one ever really published affordable DVD's for this series. Geneon started doing that for OVA 1 and 2, but it went kaput.
The Geocities demise also took down most of the El-Hazard fansites. We were able to merge one of the best, because the creators were old members of this forum, as explained here.

Ah yeah, quite a lot of places got taken out in the geocities purge (including one of my own, which I am most thankful for its eradication ;) ) from all kinds of fandoms. Sites going down in general sucks since that information may be lost entirely to time. Even the Wayback Machine can't save everything. It's why I'm glad to see a place like this still up and running even after all these years of little activity. The information still has a home.

Having any kind of media release would be nice, even a digital high resolution stream/downloadable copy would do wonders. Shame that the Magnificent World BR set got canned, would have been nice to see El-Hazzy on shelves again somewhere.

Welcome both! It's always nice to see posts around here.  :)

Yeah, you can probably say this is a lost civilization, in a way, hoping to come back to life somehow.

edit: I guessed as much, but now I've figured out I've introduced at least one friend here by way of Tenchi!

Indeed, after we got to talkin about wanting to find some other fans and found this place we had just about the right idea. I was only waiting  to see if you'd go first.  ;)

Hayashi really had a damn good thing going, didn't he? El-Hazard feels very much like what Tenchi could have become but in its own right I'm glad it got to become its own thing.

We can only hope some old guard are sitting around somewhere. I'm sure it'll be quite a surprise to see a blip of activity on the radar.
