El Hazard

El Hazard is an anime franchise by the anime studio AIC.

There are a total of three El Hazard OVA series (which form a connected trilogy) and a television show (which is a complete re-telling of the story).

The story focuses on four people from our world who are accidentally transported to the fantastical world of El Hazard, which is threatened with a massive war.

El Hazard is a "light" series -- while it has a fair amount of character development, the series focuses almost entirely on action/adventure and comedy. Contrast this with, say, Tenchi Muyo!', which has a bit more character development and drama (especially in the later series).

Historical context: After the phenomenal success of Tenchi Muyo!, AIC wanted to repeat its success. It created El Hazard, which proved that AIC could reliably create popular anime.
