There, he is mistaken for Fatora, a missing princess, and quickly becomes entangled in a seven day quest to find her, all the while fending off female advances and trying to clear his name!
Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari feels like a more modern telling of El-Hazard. From plot, animation, character design, and even the pace of the show seem to be on par. Characters have similar personalities within both shows. Both shows revolve around a main character from another world, who play a major part in their new world.
Have you ever been sick and tired of the world we live in? So much, that you've tried any means possible to escape it? Zed shares the same feelings as we all do. In the smog ridden, and sunless world of Calm, people manage to scrape by on the bare minimum. Fed up with living in this hellhole, Zed looks for an outlet to another world. Beating down and smashing every door in his sight, he hopes that if he believes strong enough, his gateway will open -- open to a place beyond his imagination, and where his life will have meaning. After finally being transported to another world full of nature and endless battles, Zed soon comes to realize that his life of purpose has just begun.
Both Kiba and El Hazard have a main character that ends up in a parallel world and struggles to survive. Both heroes acquire powers and abilities that they couldn't have in their home worlds.
El-Hazard tends to be funnier, though the story itself gives the same impression as Kiba.
One fateful day, Inaho -- a model catholic high school student -- meets a vampire named Mosquiton and his two sidekicks: Honou and Yuuki. Joined by a gorgeous wolflady and a kindhearted brute, they set out to search for the mystical items called "O-parts". These mysterious treasures, difficult to obtain, are rumored to give incomprehensible power to the one who manages to obtain and activate them with an O-part key.
One thousand years after the Giant Warriors caused an apocalyptic event known as the seven days of fire, humans are living in constant fear of the Toxic Jungle. This ever-spreading forest is filled with poisonous plants and gigantic monstrous insects; even the very air is deadly. Nausicaa is the kind and wise princess of a small, peaceful country known as the Valley of the Wind, which has so far avoided the spread of the forest. One night a large airship containing one of the Giant Warriors crashes into the valley. The following day soldiers from the powerful nation of Tolmekia invade the Valley of the Wind to reclaim and revive the warrior. As the only one who truly believes that there is a way for humans to live alongside the insects, Nausicaa must find a way to stop the war that now threatens her people and protect the Toxic Jungle before the Tolmekians burn it to the ground.
Both of these anime involve a war in a magical land filled with magical creatures. Both are adventure stories but Nausicaa is more serious whereas El-Hazard is comedic. If you like the setting of either of these anime but want to experience a different approach then try the other.
